The version of P5 You're about to see is a Marketer.
Odds are, they'll be doing it in CGI: here's why. If it's CGI, then in 10 years the special effects won't look cheesy, because the whole movie is special effects. Also, CGI is more appealing to children, who they'll probably be marketing it to. I know that a good portion of fans are us Tweens, Teens, and adults (We love you, Darvit!), marketing a movie towards children is a much bigger money-maker. Think about it, if you're a teenager, then you're going to want to go see the movie with your friends. That's one group of about five. If you're a child, you're going to see the movie with your parents. All your friends are going to see the movie with parents. So, if you're a child, instead of going to the movie in one group of (let's say) 5, you and your friends will each be going in groups of two to three or more (depending on how many siblings you have), which means instead of selling 5 tickets, you'll sell 15 or more tickets.
Plus, a CGI movie has a bigger chance of winning an oscar. Think about it, most kids' movies don't get nominated in the oscars. However, there is a whole category for Animated movies. And since there are less animated movies released in theaters per year, any given animated movie has a better chance of winning an Oscar.
And on the subject of them squishing the two movies together, I would think they would have to do it. Think about it this way. If they make a movie out of just one book, and fans hate it, the odds of them doing a second movie are slim. The problem with this is, while within the series Artemis is a Dynamic character who changes for the better, within the first book alone, Artemis is a static character, who shows no change throughout the book. Which means, if they make only the first movie and don't get to make the second one, then they don't get to show Artemis changing. Artemis's changing is one of the major themes of the series, and without it, you can't really have a movie representative of the series.
Surely you all agree with me that you can't have an Artemis Fowl movie that doesn't have him at least starting to change. That's what the Arctic Incident had, was him starting to make the transition from Villain to Anti-hero.
Now, you all probably remember the Lemony Snicket movie. Since the box office sales weren't too great, they didn't continue the movie series. If this happened to Artemis Fowl, and they didn't squish the movies together, then we wouldn't get to see Artemis Change at all, and he would end up less of a 3 dimensional character.
But if they do squish it together, Artemis is shown as a dynamic character, one who changes over the course of the story. Then, if they do continue, great! If they don't, then they already showed the change in Artemis's character.
Also, whether or not they can make more money with two movies depends on how good the first movie is. If a movie's not successful, you not only don't make money, you actually lose it. So if they make one movie and it sucks, then make a second movie, odds are they'll lose money on it. It's much easier to make one movie out of two books, then see where they're going from there.
