According to 'Avatar' director James Cameron, "China could easily be as big a gross-revenue market for film as North America," which was probably why his company Cameron/Pace Group recently announced a new partnership venture called CPG China. The main goal is to set up camera and 3D production services to Tiajin, the northern city port, but what does this mean for Cameron and his upcoming projects? Well, according to him, it means we could be seeing Chinese Na'vi in 'Avatar 2,' '3' and '4.'
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.
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.
And you thought dudes stalking chicks at a regular nightclub were creepy? Wait until you see guys with tails who are coated head-to-toe in blue body painting macking on ladies in Avastar, the new Las Vegas-style nightclub modeled after James Cameron’s ‘Avatar.’
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?
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.
