James Cameron's 'Avatar' shattered box-office records during its time in theaters and currently sits at the $2.7 billion mark in total worldwide grosses. It's only natural with a film of this magnitude to wonder how the whole idea came about, and now we have anĀ in-depth account of how the man of 'Titanic,' 'Aliens' and 'The Terminator' fame created this modern flick. Too bad he was kind of forced to do it!

'Mythbusters' Settles the 'Titanic' Debate: Did Jack Have to Die?

It was a debate that had raged since 'Titanic' hit theaters 25 years ago: did Rose leave Jack to die by not letting him up on the board as they floated in the ocean. James Cameron maintains that the board would have only been big enough for one of them and Jack died valiantly, letting Rose live. Others argue that they could have at least tried to fit work it so both of them could have survived. But would it have actually worked? 'Mythbusters' to the rescue!

Will 'Avatar' Sequels Introduce Chinese Na'vi?

by Nick Romano September 20, 2012 @ 9:02 AM
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.'

James Cameron Teaming Up With 'Mythbusters' on Jack and Rose's Raft from 'Titanic'

If you were like us, it probably took every ounce of restraint not to scream at the theater screen when Jack sacrificed himself and let Rose have that door-raft all to herself in 'Titanic.' There was totally enough room on that raft for both of them! James Cameron says that's not so, and he's teaming up with the 'Mythbusters' to prove it.

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.

How Many 'Avatar' Sequels Are We Going to Get?

by Jacob Hall September 3, 2012 @ 6:00 PM
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.

by Damon Houx June 29, 2012 @ 6:30 PM
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.
