Friedberg and Seltzer are Back with The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D
May 23, 2011
Writers/directors Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer will soon be back with The Biggest Movie of All Time 3D, an Avatar spoof now in pre-production. You can read a description and see poster art below:
In "Scary Movie" we spoofed the creepy teen horror genre, in "Date Movie" we took on cliché romantic comedies, "Epic Movie" we parodied bloated blockbusters, "Meet the Spartans" we lampooned the ultra macho "300" and in "Vampires Suck" we skewered the cultural phenomenon "Twilight." But our new movie will dare spoof the biggest, boldest and most successful movie ever made – James Cameron's "Avatar."
With a domestic box office of nearly 700 million dollars and an overseas haul of over 2 billion, it was only a matter time before this behemoth got a good ribbing. And what could possibly be riper for satire? You got half naked blue people plugging their hair into strange flying horses so they can read their thoughts! And nothing in this mega blockbuster is off limits, from its overly simplified message of "big corporations = bad; tree hugging environmentalist = good," to the broadly drawn characters like the buffed out Colonel who's in a perpetual 'roid rage to the very colorful, glowing and... come on, totally stony world of Pandora. And just like "Avatar" our movie will be in eye popping 3-D – making it the very first spoof movie ever in this format. It's a perfect showcase for our outrageous sight gags, physical comedy and audacious stunts that will make for a hilarious film and uproarious audience experience.
