London (ANI): Titanic star Leonardo DiCaprio is a big fan of James Cameron's latest movie Avatar, and is full of praise for the helmer"s hard work on the epic. The 3D film recently sank Titanic''s box office record – a blockbuster film which was also directed by Cameron. The 1997 disaster movie had set a new high in worldwide takings with 1.8 billion dollars. However, Avatar smashed the massive record – it has pulled in more than 2.4 billion dollars since its release in December last year.
But DiCaprio is not disappointed, reports The Daily Express. He tells GMTV, "It's an unbelievable film experience, it really is. What Cameron pulled off on that movie - it's astounding, it blows your mind. "I went in to there not knowing much about the world he was going to create - all I heard was 400 million dollars, four years in the making: ''Alright Jim, let's see what you're going to do.''"
And the 35 year old is hopeful there will be a sequel to Avatar: "It's the first time I've been submerged into a digital 3D world like that, I felt connected to the characters. I hope they keep going and going."
