New Piranha Movie Happening, Concept Art Unveiled

9 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There are no sea creatures that can match the terror that was permanently placed in moviegoers when Steven Spielberg made Jaws, but if anything were to come close, it might be Piranha. No, the Piranha franchise, which actually started as a spoof of Spielberg's classic shark thriller, has never quite been the critical darling and beloved blockbuster that the original Jaws was, but the series has persisted over the years and has provided some solid, if campy, sea creature horror. Now it looks like after a few years away, the Piranha franchise is ready to make a return to the big screen next year.

Per Bloody Disgusting, Producer Hisako Tsukaba is currently working on a new movie in the Piranha series that is set to be released at some point in 2018. The movie is titled Summer of the Piranha and is reportedly already in the pre-production stages in Japan. »

My favorite best picture Oscar winner: Titanic

23 February 2017 5:00 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Continuing our series of Guardian writers’ all-time Academy picks, Kate Hutchinson makes her case for James Cameron’s blockbusting romance

On the surface, Titanic’s redeeming qualities may seem as barely visible as a giant iceberg lurking in the north Atlantic sea. Crummy dialogue. Celine Dion warbling about hearts going on. Leonardo DiCaprio’s fringe curtains. The infuriating probability that if Kate Winslet’s Rose had just squidged up a bit there would have definitely been room for two on that raft. James Cameron’s 1997 disasterpiece was, in many ways, dodgy like the ocean liner’s own detector system. It was a box office ripper and an Oscars guzzler, for sure, but was at the same time rubbished for being the most expensive chick flick ever made ($200m, long since eclipsed by other blockbusters). To some eyes it was merely a hypothermic romance schmaltzily clomped together by an action auteur »

Alita: Battle Angel Wraps Filming; Michelle Rodriguez Confirmed To Play Gelda

22 February 2017 1:23 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Ghost in the Shell is now beginning to make the final preparations ahead of its March 31st release, but there’s another high-profile manga movie incubating in Hollywood, and that’s Alita: Battle Angel.

Truth be told, it’s been a long, meandering road for the live-action feature film. Initially hatched as a James Cameron vehicle, Yukito Kishiro’s nine-volume manga soon fell onto the back-burner at 20th Century Fox as the director devoted most, if not all of his time and resources to fanning the flames of his Avatar franchise. The overriding message coming out of Fox was that Alita: Battle Angel was dormant, not dead, and after drafting in Robert Rodriguez at the helm, it didn’t take long before the project was whipped into shape.

Eager to see the adaptation through to the end, Cameron remains attached to produce Battle Angel, which has since recruited a host »

Michelle Rodriguez Secretly Joined Alita: Battle Angel

22 February 2017 11:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Production has been under way on the highly-anticipated Alita: Battle Angel for the past few months, with filming coming to an end last week. While a number of cast members were announced last year, there is one mystery role that hasn't been announced until today, with Michelle Rodriguez being cast as Gelda from the original manga by Yukito Kishiro. It remains to be seen how faithful this movie version of Gelda is to the source material, but in the original manga, Gelda was described as a "slim cyborg warrior."

Entertainment Weekly broke the news, although it remains unclear if there are other mystery characters that haven't been announced at this time. Michelle Rodriguez joins a cast that includes Rosa Salazar as the title character, alongside Christoph Waltz, Eiza Gonzalez, Jackie Earle Haley, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jennifer Connolly and Lana Condor. This project has been in development for several years, »

A few weeks ago, Disney Parks announced that their highly-anticipated Pandora World of Avatar ride will finally open its doors at Disney's Animal Kingdom on May 27.

Disney Parks has also released a behind-the-scenes video with Disney Imagineer Joe Rodhe, who gives us an extended look at this immersive adventure and reveals how this park is a perfect fit for Disney's Animal Kingdom.

Joe Rohde, who played a major part in the original development for Disney's Animal Kingdom in the 1990s revealed that the themes in both the film Avatar and the values the designers of Disney's Animal Kingdom had in mind when planning the park are the same. Both the film and this attraction emphasize the intrinsic value of nature. »

21 February 2017 9:40 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Following the Berlin Film Festival premiere of the 3D-converted “Terminator 2: Judgement Day,” James Cameron jumped onto Facebook to answer questions from fans.

Jon Favreau’s VFX Master: Why ‘The Jungle Book’ Will Win the Only Oscar It Can Get

20 February 2017 3:26 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Last year, the Academy rewarded George Miller’s Best-Picture contender “Mad Max: Fury Road” with 10 Oscar nominations and six wins. Jon Favreau’s “The Jungle Book” belongs in the same cinematic groundbreaker category, but partly because Disney marketing wasn’t able to pull the movie out of its family movie ghetto, only the Visual Effects branch of the Academy nominated this wondrous achievement that wowed global moviegoers to the tune of $964 million worldwide.

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 (“Titanic,” “Aviator,” “Hugo”), created a seamlessly natural digital world with many vibrant animal characters — and one live boy (Neel Sethi).

James Cameron Names Zack Snyder, Robert Rodriguez, & Tim Miller As Inspirations

20 February 2017 10:31 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Without a doubt, James Cameron is one of the most influential voices in film today (perhaps even in history). Sure, the guy tends to make one film a decade, but when he does actually release a movie, they, without fail, go one to become cultural phenomenons. Terminator 2, Titanic, Avatar -- these are all movies that have defined generations, and they’re movies that continue on as staples of their respective genres.

Of course, creativity doesn’t happen by accident, and it doesn’t happen in a vacuum. Creativity feeds creativity, and like any creative person, James Cameron survives on a healthy diet of other people’s works. But on whose works is Cameron actually feeding? Speaking with Megat Danial, Cameron shared that very thing.

“Directors that continue to inspire me…Ridley Scott. I mean, I’ll go to any Ridley Scott movie, even the ones that bomb, to me, are great, »

StudioCanal has announced that James Cameron’s 1991 sci-fi action classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day will be returning to screens in the UK with a special 3D release beginning August 25th 2017 (that’s just four days before the 20th anniversary of Judgment Day).

The film has been converted into immersive 3D by Lightstorm, James Cameron’s production company, and the team behind the 3D conversion of Titanic. The original 35mm negative was scanned and then restored in 4k at Deluxe L.A., under the supervision of Geoff Burdick of Lightstorm. The film was calibrated in 4k by Skip, James Cameron’s colorist, at Technicolor Hollywood, with a selection of the best 35mm prints from the film’s first release.

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany Soak Up the Sun With Their Kids in St. Barts

19 February 2017 10:55 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany escaped the Winter cold when they jetted off to St. Barts for a fun family vacation this week. On Sunday, the brood hit the beach with their kids, daughter Agnes and son Stellan. Clad in a sexy bikini, Jennifer showed off her fit physique as she waded in the water and walked along the shore with Paul, who sported black swim trunks. Jennifer was recently cast in James Cameron's upcoming Alita: Battle Angel, while Paul has been busy filming The Avengers: Infinity War, so it only makes sense that they'd carve time out of their hectic schedules for some quality family time.

Oscars: A History of ‘Star Trek’ Films in the Best Makeup and Hairstyling Category

Star Trek Beyond’ (Courtesy: Paramount)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Just as the Star Wars films has been a force to be reckoned with in the best visual effects category, the Star Trek films have done the same in the best makeup and hairstyling category. Over the course of Oscar history — or at least since the addition of this award — this sci-fi franchise has amassed four nominations in this category with one of those being a win and one being up in the air this year. Let’s take a look back and see if history can help us predict how Star Trek Beyond will perform.

Before jumping into the Star Trek goodness, let’s get a little background on the best makeup and hairstyling category, shall we? The category, which features multiple stages of nominating, was first present at the 1982 ceremony with a focus on makeup and didn’t »

Rogue One VFX Breakdown Spotlights Ilm’s Incredible, Oscar-Nominated Work

16 February 2017 2:46 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Industrial Light and Magic is a VFX company that needs no introduction. Founded by George Lucas in ’75 – just prior to the release of Star Wars: A New Hope in 1977 – the production house has since worked across iconic cinematic franchises, including Jurassic Park, Harry Potter and James Cameron’s Terminator series, to name but three.

Late last year, Ilm was tasked with bringing Gareth Edwards’ vision to life in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and thanks to an all-new VFX breakdown, you’ll be able to get a sense of how those jaw-dropping effects shots came to be. Though it’s made up mostly of many of the same interviews that dropped online prior to Rogue One‘s release in December, this new featurette arrives in good time for the 89th Academy Awards, where Edwards’ standalone pic is nominated in two categories: Best Achievement in Sound Mixing and Best Achievement in Visual Effects. »

Matt Edwards Feb 17, 2017

The director of John Wick 2 on fight scenes, Keanu Reeves, the Highlander remake, Jason Statham and John Wick 3...

With John Wick co-director David Leicht off directing Deadpool 2, Chad Stahelski returns to take sole control over follow up to the brilliant, Keanu Reeves starring shoot ‘em up. We sat down with the former stuntman to talk about how he creates such beautiful carnage in John Wick Chapter 2, as well as grabbing updates on the future of the John Wick franchise and his upcoming Highlander remake.

Why John Wick 2? Why’ve you made a second one?

There’s all the fiduciary reasons for the studio. For me, on a personal level, we were very fortunate. The first movie did really well. My partner Dave (Leicht), and I got a lot of other offers to do projects and step into other people’s shoes and do other sequels. »
