We know 'Jurassic Park' as something of a modern classic. Directed by Steven Spielberg, it's an almost perfect example of action-suspense blockbuster filmmaking. But it turns out, Steven Spielberg almost didn't direct the film and James Cameron - the man behind 'Avatar' and 'Titanic' - almost did.
When your film is the highest grossing movie of all time, sequel talk is inevitable. It's not surprising that we've been hearing about follow-ups to 'Avatar' for the past three years, but it's a little surprising how confusing and convoluted the sequel talk has been. How many sequels? When are they filming? When are they being released. Today, producer Jon Landau set the record straight. For now, at least.
Cirque du Soleil has been running for nearly thirty years now, and it's done phenomenal business in towns like Las Vegas. But - so far - all reproductions of the show have mostly gone direct to video. They couldn't recreate the experience. But now that 3D is so prominent it makes sense that 'Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away' will play theaters this December 21.
You read that headline correctly: James Cameron is planning to shoot 'Avatar 2' 'Avatar 3' and 'Avatar 4' all at the same time that could be released in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
The New York Times has published a terrific interview with forward-thinking filmmaker James Cameron, who spoke with him at the Beijing International Film Festival. Some may find his thoughts on international 3D markets and the Chinese film industry fascinating. Others may be more interested in his suggestion that he will no longer make any films not set in the 'Avatar' universe. The whole interview is worth your time, but check out some highlights below.
Hey, we're not the ones who're saying this, it's filmmaker James Cameron. He thinks the world can be changed by his own movies and the messages they're slathering onto the big screen and...maybe he's right?
Remember back when Arnold Schwarzenegger had just left the governor’s office and was actively looking to reboot his acting career? Rumors swirled that the ‘Terminator’ star was more than willing to return to the franchise that helped put him on the map for a fifth installment. As it turns out, we might have to thank James Cameron for talking Schwarzenegger down from that ‘Terminator’ ledge.
There's been talks about James Cameron and his crew making another 'Avatar' movie even before the ground breaking first film was first released back in 2009. Ever since then they've been flapping their gums, keeping the spark of hope alive in the fans who are still interested in seeing a sequel. But when will it ever happen?
Not any time soon.
