In news that will likely come as a surprise to absolutely no one, James Cameron’s Avatar 2 has been delayed yet again, and will no longer hit theaters in December 2017 as previously planned. This news comes on the heels of Disney’s decision to delay Star Wars: Episode VIII until December 2017, which would have pitted the two blockbusters against one another (unfortunately not in a fight to the death, Gladiator-style).

It’s been a while since James Cameron updated us on the status of his planned sequels to Avatar, the highest-grossing (and perhaps most divisive) film of all time.

For anyone sorely missing James Cameron’s 2009 feature Avatar, today’s about to become a good day. It was not enough for Cameron to schedule three (3!) sequels to the sci-fi fantasia, and it was not enough for him to guarantee that they will “be bitchin’” and “make you s— yourself with your mouth wide open.” It was not enough for Disney to begin development on an Avatar theme park, effectively making the world of the movie real. The only place left to take Avatar-branded entertainment is to the realm of unsettlingly surreal, and that is where Cirque du Soleil comes in.

Most fans of the first two Terminator films probably agree when it comes to the upcoming Terminator Genisys – approach with caution. This thing looks ready to burn anyone who gets their hopes up.

Five years after its initial release, does anyone care about James Cameron’s Avatar or its upcoming sequels? Disney bet countess millions of dollars on a “yes” when it officially broke ground on The World of Pandora, a new expansion to their Animal Kingdom park at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Although the actual park “land” is still a massive dirt pit filled with construction equipment, Disney has released a brief new video showcasing some of the technology and scenery that will be featured in their latest theme park endeavor and we’d be lying if we said it didn’t look awfully impressive.

Now that James Cameron has promised that the new ‘Avatar’ movies will make you “sh– yourself,” he’s going to be pretty busy for the next few years trying to make sure the sequels live up to that very, um, specific hype. And since he’ll be preoccupied, he’s stepped down from directing true-life drama ‘The Dive,’ passing directorial duties off to ‘The Hunger Games’ director Francis Lawrence. As it turns out, another Lawrence is now involved in ‘The Dive’: Jennifer Lawrence will reunite with her ‘Hunger Games’ director to play the lead in the upcoming project.
