When he made Avatar, he developed no fewer than four sequels to tell a broader story – and plans to shoot them consecutively from 2018 to 2023. Before he gets to that, however, he will deliver a six-part documentary series to AMC, focusing on the genre of science fiction – James Cameron’s Story Of Science Fiction, to be precise – about which he is so very passionate.

The limited series will comprise of six hour-long episodes, and each instalment will ask a single question. The show will then examine how that question has been addressed by popular culture, such as film, television, video games, »

AMC orders documentary series James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction

15 January 2017 2:20 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

AMC is teaming up with filmmaker James Cameron to explore the evolution of sci-fi in a six-part documentary series, tentatively titled James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction, which THR reports will “delve into sci-fi’s origins as a small genre with a cult and developing to the blockbuster pop-culture phenomenon it is today.”

“When I was a kid, I basically read any book with a spaceship on the cover and I saw 2001: A Space Odyssey many, many times,” said Cameron. “The movie inspired me to become a filmmaker. I liked the special effects, but I really loved the ideas and the questions behind them: How will the world end? Will technology destroy us? What does it mean to be human? These are subjects sci-fi has never been afraid to tackle. With this series, we are going back to the origins of sci-fi, following the DNA of these ideas back to the source. »

Rogue One Dethrones Finding Dory as 2016's Domestic Box Office Champ

15 January 2017 1:51 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

4 billion dollars seems like a lot of money no matter what way you look at it, but that's what Disney paid to acquire all of Lucasfilm back in 2012. The purchase was primarily so that they could make Star Wars movies until most of us are dead or they are no longer profitable. If Star Wars: Rogue One is any indicator, they are going to be profitable for a very long time, because it has just passed Finding Dory at the domestic box office

According to Box Office Mojo, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has now made Just shy of $499 million domestically, which puts it above Pixar's Finding Dory, which made $486 million during its run last summer. Finding Dory still has the latest Star Wars movie beat worldwide, but that will probably change soon. As of right now, Star Wars: Rogue One has made $979.9 million worldwide and Finding Dory finished up with $1.02 billion. »

Here’s Why ‘The Jungle Book’ Deserves More Oscar Respect

13 January 2017 8:26 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Just as George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road,” James Cameron’s “Avatar,” Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” and Ang Lee’s “Life of Pi” were cinematic groundbreakers for the ages, I believe Oscar voters should take Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” more seriously.

Favreau and screenwriter Justin Marks took Rudyard Kipling’s classic tales of Mowgli and his brothers and, with help from James Cameron and Martin Scorsese’s go-to VFX master Rob Legato, created a seamlessly natural digital world with many vibrant animal characters — and one live boy (Neel Sethi).

Maybe Favreau makes it look too easy. This isn’t fantasy-world “Avatar.” This is digital India. He calls up fond memories of Disney’s 1967 animated musical, weaving in a couple of songs and creating a grand set piece led by Christopher Walken as a giant ancient orangutan (gigantopithecus, »

New Images From T2 Trainspotting

12 January 2017 3:41 PM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

We never thought we’d see it, but it’s 20 years later and Danny Boyle is getting the gang back together (and probably pissing James Cameron off in the process) for T2 Trainspotting. The original cast, including Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee miller, and Ewan Bremner, reunite for what Boyle says will be ‘quite emotional for people’, and while belated sequels have been more monumental misses than hits lately, a brace of new images have come our way showing off Boyle’s usual eye for fantastic visuals and promising that this is one reunion you’ll want to be part of.

‘Pearl’: How Google Spotlight Turned a Vr Short Into an Oscar Contender

10 January 2017 2:30 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Patrick Osborne definitely likes making animated home movie-like experiences as snapshots in time. The Oscar-winning Disney short, “Feast” (2015), offered a series of eating vignettes in a dog’s life. Now he’s competing again with the 2D version of his Google Spotlight Stories Vr short, “Pearl,” a musical journey between a father and daughter inside their ’83 Chevy Citation.

Made at Evil Eye Pictures and Google Atap, “Pearl” also boasts the original song, “No Wrong Way Home,” written by Alexis Harte & Jj Wiesler and performed by Kelley Stoltz and Nicki Bluhm.

J.J. Abrams Is Done with Sequels and Reboots

10 January 2017 10:46 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past handful of years, J.J. Abrams has made it clear that he is a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. He may not always make perfect movies, but he has proven that he can tap into what the public really wants to see and has had a lot of success rebooting and reviving beloved properties. He could easily make that his business for the rest of his days, but after the success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he has decided that he is done with sequels and reboots.

The director spoke with People after the Golden Globes recently, since he was there for his role as a producer on HBO's Westworld. During the chat, J.J. Abrams revealed that he is very grateful for the opportunities he has been afforded, but that he really wants to turn his attention to original ideas in the future. Here »

Zoe Saldana Game For Star Trek 4: “I Would Always Come Back”

10 January 2017 7:32 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Chris Hemsworth isn’t the only actor to be quizzed about the future of Paramount’s Star Trek saga – Zoe Saldana, who plays communications officer Nyota Uhura in the Kelvin timeline, told IGN that she would “love” to return for Star Trek 4.

Chatting to the outlet in anticipation of Ben Affleck’s bootlegging drama Live By Night, Saldana remained hopeful that Star Trek 4 – and J.J. Abrams’ seemingly “amazing pitch” – will see the light of day despite Beyond‘s box office performance. Justin Lin’s spacefaring threequel recouped $343 million worldwide, down from the $467 million haul of Into Darkness. Inevitably, said figure has raised questions over the franchise’s future, and that’s despite Paramount officially issuing the go-ahead on a fourth installment.

Here’s what Saldana had to share on the matter at hand:
