“Avatar 2″ is giving another look at the much-talked-about underwater scenes.
The official Twitter account for the movie shared a picture of Kate Winslet filming underwater.
“I had to learn how to free-dive to play that role in ‘Avatar’, and that was just incredible,” Winslet told The Hollywood Reporter. “My longest breath hold was seven minutes and 14 seconds, like crazy, crazy stuff.”
