It’s been a bit of a crazy week in the movie industry, and we’ve got a whole host of things to discuss in regards to the biggest movie and TV news that dominated our RSS feeds over the last seven days. Tinseltown is a busy place, and now that we’re getting farther into 2014 we’re getting more and more updates about what movies will be dominating our cinemas for the foreseeable future, and which shows we’ll likely be tuning into week after week.
We’ve got a few new comic book adaptations on the way that will grace both the small screen and the silver screen; and we heard updates about whether or not Spider-Man could ever fight alongside the Avengers, or if Fox wants the Fantastic Four showing up alongside the X-Men. We’ve also got a big casting rumour to cross »

Stephen Lang (Avatar) has been tapped for a recurring role on Wgn America‘s drama series Salem. Set in the volatile world of 17th century Massachusetts, it explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and centers on Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery), the beautiful, ruthless but vulnerable wife of the ancient, ailing but very wealthy George Sibley (Michael Mulheren), one of Salem’s town Selectmen. Innovative Artists-repped Lang will play Increase Mather, an old-line, hard-core Puritan who led the way across the ocean to the Promised Land in the late 1600s. Intellectually, spiritually and politically, he’s the most influential man in the country — and the most feared. “Stephen Lang is a tremendous actor armed with an almost frightening knowledge of history and psychology — perfect for our twisted Salem, where Increase Mather is a man driven to monstrous deeds by the intensity of his convictions; and a loving »

If anyone were to look at an abandoned nuclear power plant and think, "We could totally film an underwater epic here," it would have to be James Cameron. In fact, when looking at the details of his extremely exhaustive shoot for his 1989 opus, The Abyss, it almost looks like the James Cameron we know today (good and bad) was forged mostly on that shoot. Even back then, his visions were so huge that they required feats of moving heaven and earth to be attained. It.s always fun to recall a time where directors tried to pull off as many effects with practical means as they could, and a recent find on the Internet helps put just what they were working with into perspective. The following images are pulled from a gallery that shows just what the location used in The Abyss looks like today, over twenty years after they »
The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)
And so the essential twist that led to »

I'm not sure why they're calling this the final trailer for "X-Men: Days Of Future Past." With a month to go before the film's release, I would imagine we're going to get pounded with marketing materials that are going to show us more and more of the film in an effort to get audiences to show up. My own kids have been working to catch up with the "X-Men" series for the last month, and just tonight we watched "X-Men: First Class." I was struck again by just how much I like that film's take on the relationship between Charles (James McAvoy) and Erik (Michael Fassbender), and there is no way to quantify how lucky they were to sign Jennifer Lawrence before she became a giant star. This film may feature an army of cameo appearances from the cast of the first three movies, but it is still very much a sequel to "First Class, »

“Transcendence” is a most curious name for a movie that never shakes free from those hoary old cliches about the evils of technology and the danger by which man plays at becoming a god. The man in question here is Johnny Depp, whose listless lead performance as a brilliant scientist in the field of artificial intelligence does little to aid this overplotted, dramatically undernourished debut feature from longtime Christopher Nolan d.p. Wally Pfister. Arriving at a crowded spring box office, the pic will test Depp’s drawing power outside of the Disney franchise factory, before weak word of mouth and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” send it packing.
One of the manifold pleasures of Spike Jonze’s “Her” was how elegantly it shrugged off decades of speculative fiction in which technological progress correlated to a loss of human individualism. In its place was the delightful suggestion that, rather than battling us for domination, »

Manhattan Beach Studios has been evacuated due to a bomb threat, according to local reports. The Mbs Media Campus, a sprawling facility formerly known as Raleigh Studios, is located at 1600 Rosecrans Avenue in Manhattan Beach. The local police reportedly have set up a perimeter around the block to investigate, with a command post located at 33rd and Aviation. The department issued an advisory Tuesday asking citizens to "avoid the area." Story: James Cameron Says Three 'Avatar' Sequel Scripts to Be 'Finished' Within Six Weeks The Hollywood Reporter has reached out to authorities for additional comment. James Cameron is

Manhattan Beach Studios were evacuated Tuesday due to a bomb threat, TheWrap has learned. Police set up a command post at the corner of 33rd and Aviation in Manhattan Beach, around 11 a.m. No residents were evacuated. Several journalists in the area also tweeted about the bomb threat, including Julie Sone with ABC 7 News in Los Angeles. Manhattan Beach Studios Media Campus, formerly Raleigh Manhattan Beach Studios, was home to Marvel Studios before the company was bought by Disney and relocated to Glendale last year. The studio facility most recently served as a filming location for “Captain America: Winter Soldier, »

Oh, Harrison. While Harrison Ford is one of the few guys working right now who I could indisputably call "iconic," I find myself ambivalent about his persona when he's giving interviews. I've had some good chats with him, and some that were more difficult, and it completely seems to be up to his mood at the moment we sit down. The same can be said about his appearances on talk shows. He's done it well at times, and there are other interviews where it looks like he wants to crawl out of his skin, and for an actor, he seems to have no interest in disguising his feelings at all. He seems perfectly happy to snarl at someone if he thinks they ask him something stupid or obvious, which makes it extra-surprising that he was willing to do a Reddit Ama to help promote the new documentary series "Years Of Living Dangerously. »

As The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starts to spin its way to a cinema near you this week, our Spidey sense is telling us that it is a perfect time to reflect on the previous four films starring the wondrous webhead.
As one of the comic book world’s most enduring and beloved creations, Spider-Man was hotly sought after for a film adaptation for many years, and was stuck in development hell until Titanic director James Cameron took hold of the material around the turn of the century. Even when Cameron dissociated himself with the project, Hollywood bosses knew that Spidey would make a splash on the silver screen – and right they were. The original film trilogy that spanned 2002-7, directed by Sam Raimi, did not disappoint, breaking numerous box office records and even winning an Academy Award. Such was the character’s popularity that just five years later »

A relative unknown just ten years ago, science fiction star Zoe Saldana has her hands full these days. She’s set to begin filming three back-to-back sequels for James Cameron’s Avatar this fall, while another Star Trek film is in the works for possibly 2016 and her next film, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, will release later this year.
However, first she’ll make her way to the small screen this summer starring in a television adaptation of Ira Levin’s 1967 novel Rosemary’s Baby for NBC. The book was famously made into an Oscar-nominated film by Roman Polanski and follows a young married couple who moves into a creepy old apartment building in New York City, only to then discover their unborn child is fathered by the devil himself.
The first trailer for the 4-hour miniseries takes the story in a ...

It's no secret that Paul W.S. Anderson worships the works of James Cameron. Anderson has enthused about Aliens in countless interviews. The director has cited influences Cameron has had on him. He has to be happy to know that one of James Cameron's guilty pleasures is none other than...Resident Evil. During a Reddit chat, Cameron was asked to reveal his favorite guilty pleasure to which the Avatar helmer replied...

We probably won’t see Bethenny Frankel back on the Real Housewives Of New York anytime soon. The former reality star has likened her experience to the Vietnam War, though we’re certain the conflict in east Asia was much more gruesome. [The Hollywood Gossip] Where does Shailene Woodley grab new clothes? At the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, the actress told Big Morning Buzz Live she and her pals have “naked lady parties,” where they rummage one friend’s closet and strip down to try on clothes. Hmm, is that why she looked so amazing during last night’s show? Christina Hendricks would probably have the cutest kids around, but the Mad Men star says she has no plans to have children. »

1. Filmmakers Render Realistic CGI On the Fly: A new short film teaser demonstrates a new way to do real time motion capture. Using a system complete with custom software, Kevin Margo crafted "Construct," which presented a new level of digital character development and removed hours of post-production time from the process. With less time, more money was spent -- but the results are potentially pivotal for future game and filmmakers. 2. James Cameron Talks Oculus Rift: The prolific, boundary-pushing director recently expressed interest in the budding technology of Oculus Rift. Cameron's film, "Avatar," was a technological feat of modern filmmaking, let alone the highest grossing film of all time. It's safe to say that his word and his interest have serious weight in the tech world. In a recent Reddit Ama, Cameron said, "I personally would be very interested to find a way to incorporate Vr and a narrative filmmaking experience. »

Director James Cameron is a busy fellow these days, as he continues preproduction work on Avatar 2, 3 and 4. That didn’t stop the filmmaker from popping onto Reddit this weekend to participate in one of the site’s famous AMAs (Ask Me Anything). Cameron was surprisingly candid during the exchange with fans, and the highlights of the chat involve the Aliens director’s thoughts on filmmaking in general, as well as views on upcoming movies. We’ve gone through the lengthy chat and grabbed the most interesting responses. One of the most interesting questions – which inspired a very short and direct answer – involved Cameron’s plans to make a sequel to True Lies. As it turns out, we’re not going to see that film anytime soon, if ever...

James Cameron popped by Reddit on Saturday to participate in an Ama session. While the director was mainly there to promote his Showtime climate change documentary series "Years of Living Dangerously," Cameron also answered a bunch of questions about other projects including those in the past ("Titanic," "Alien," "The Abyss") as well as those in the present and future (the currently in pre-production "Avatar" sequels, the long-gestating "Battle Angel" adaptation).
Here, we've combed through Cameron's numerous replies to highlight some of his best responses. Check them out below, and be sure to check out the entire exchange -- including Cameron's detailed outline of the search plan for missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 -- for even more in-depth answers.

A day after James Cameron participated in a Reddit Ama to promote the environmental documentary Years of Living Dangerously, Harrison Ford decided to give himself over to the process as well in support of the project. The iconic actor behind Han Solo in the Star Wars movies wasn't quite as candid as Cameron in answering fan questions, which was to be expected. As Ford is notoriously grumpy in most interviews. He did share his excitement about the Untitled Blade Runner Project, which may be a true sequel to the 1982 sci-fi classic.
"I'm quite curious and excited about seeing a new script for Blade Runner if in fact the opportunity would exist to do another, if it's a good script I would »
From James Cameron to Harrison Ford, they're getting everyone on Reddit. Over the weekend the other big Reddit Ama (aka Ask Me Anything) participant was legendary actor Harrison Ford, best known as Han Solo, Indiana Jones, Rick Deckard, Jack Ryan, President James Marshall, Colonel Graff. He explains that he was recently a "correspondent for Years of Living Dangerously, a new Showtime docuseries about climate change," and answered a number of fan questions for an hour. He covers topics on Blade Runner, Star Wars, Indiana Jones, even Anchorman, Expendables, and plenty more. Recap his highlights below. Though he has been a bit odd at in-person appearances recently, Harrison Ford's responses here seem clear and concise. These are some of his best answers. To start: "Who did you prefer portraying, Han or Indiana?" I think Indiana Jones was a lot of fun to do because of the places we went to »

This past weekend saw some big stars come out to promote the upcoming nine-part Showtime documentary series on climate change called Years of Living Dangerously. The series premieres on April 13, and there are a ton of notable names associated with it, like James Cameron and Harrison Ford, both of whom participated in Reddit AMAs (Ask Me Anything) to support the doc. While Harrison Ford didn't give up any tasty details regarding the new Star Wars trilogy (and what role, if any, he'll have in it), he did answer a bunch of fun fan questions covering a wide array of topics -- from the potential for a Blade Runner sequel to who actually shot first: Han Solo or Greedo. We collected some of our favorite moments from the chat below. You can read the entire...
