'Titanic' Cinematographer Reveals Secrets Behind Jack and Rose's Iconic Kiss Scene

'Titanic' Cinematographer Reveals Secrets Behind Jack and Rose's Iconic Kiss Scene
Russell Carpenter, 67, is working with James Cameron on the first two of his planned four Avatar sequels, but the cinematographer, who will be honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 32nd American Society of Cinematographers Awards, is still best known for his Oscar-winning work on Titanic.

Most of Cameron’s 1997 epic was shot at Fox Baja Studios in Mexico, where an enormous set of the Titanic was built. “It was just a few feet shorter than the real Titanic,” recalls Carpenter. “What was extraordinary was that as much as it looked like a real ship from one side, the...

Review: ‘Black Panther’ is a Grandiose Fantasy That Raises the Bar for Marvel

There’s a sentiment expressed early on in Black Panther that just because something works doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. It’s a fitting ethos for the 18th film in Marvel Studios’ ten-year assembly line of blockbusters. However same-ish or fatigued some of the cinematic universe might feel, on the balance sheet, they work. While Ryan Coogler’s deep dive into the titular character’s Wakandan homeworld keeps the assembly line working, it heralds not only an improvement on the McU, but a striking and grandiose fantasy in its own right.

Like Kenneth Branagh’s Thor before it, Black Panther rides Shakespeare on training wheels against a lush mythological backdrop, albeit with more nuance and assured showmanship than that film (or a host of other superhero outings). There are old kings, new kings, usurpers, royal secrets, and palatial power struggles, all adding the kind of gravitas that

Stx Entertainment’s Vr division STXsurreal has announced that it has wrapped production on the live-action virtual reality series The Limit, which is written, produced and directed by Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) and stars Michelle Rodriguez (Furious 7).

Fox Gives Predator, Alita, and Death on the Nile New Release Dates

Fox has firmed up their release slate for 2018, official dating a big sequel for next year. The Predator and Alita: Battle Angel are two of the biggest releases on Fox's calendar for the year, but both have just been bumped back and will be coming out later than expected. On a more positive note, the sequel to Murder on the Orient Express, Death on the Nile, which sees Kenneth Branagh return as both director and star, has been given a 2019 release date, which means the studio is keen on getting the next Agatha Christie adaptation going rather quickly.

Death on the Nile was announced not long after the release of Murder on the Orient Express last year. The new take on Agatha Christie's famous murder novel wound up being a rather sneaky hit at the box office, bringing in $349 million worldwide, working from a $55 million budget. That represents a nice return for Fox,

The Release Dates of Alita: Battle Angel and The Predator Have Been Pushed Back

20th Century Fox has announced new release dates for two of their most highly anticipated films, Alita: Battle Angel and The Predator. We're going to have to wait a little longer for these films, but hopefully, it will be worth the wait.

The Robert Rodriguez-directed Alita: Battle Angel was originally supposed to be released on July 20, 2018, but it will now hit theaters on December 21, 2018. It will open up against Aquaman, Bumblebee, and Holmes & Watson. That's going to be a big movie weekend!

Visionary filmmakers James Cameron (Avatar) and Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) create a groundbreaking new heroine in Alita: Battle Angel, an action-packed story of hope, love and empowerment. Set several centuries in the future, the abandoned Alita (Rosa Salazar) is found in the scrapyard of Iron City by Ido (Christoph Waltz), a compassionate cyber-doctor who takes the unconscious cyborg Alita to his clinic. When Alita awakens she has

  • Cinelinx
The execs at 20th Century Fox have moved the release dates for a few notable films. Find out the new release dates for Predator, Alita: Battle Angel, and Death on the Nile inside...

Movie release dates have had a knack for being unpredictable beasts, as of late. Today, three movies proved that statement to be true as 20th Century Fox re-assed their upcoming movie release schedule, deciding to push back a few of their biggest films. Specifically, Predator, Alita: Battle Angel, and Death on the Nile.

Shane Black's Predator film is one of the most intriguing films to release in 2018, and just so happens to be the film with the least movement. Instead of releasing on August 3, Fox has circled September 14, 2018 has the new release date for the film starring Boyd Holbrook, Olivia Munn, Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Sterling K. Brown, Jacob Tremblay, Yvonne Strahovski, Alfie Allen, and Thomas Jane.

Fox Moves Release of James Cameron’s ‘Alita: Battle Angel’

Fox Moves Release of James Cameron’s ‘Alita: Battle Angel’
Fox has moved the opening of James Cameron’s “Alita: Battle Angel” back five months from July 20 to Dec. 21.

“Alita” stars Rosa Salazar in the title role, along with Jackie Earle Haley, Eiza Gonzalez, Lana Condor, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jennifer Connelly, and Christoph Waltz.

Robert Rodriguez is directing and Cameron is producing with Jon Landau through his Lightstorm Entertainment banner. Cameron and Laeta Kalogridis wrote the screenplay, based on Yukito Kishiro’s manga series. The story is set in a 26th-century dystopian future and follows an amnesiac cyborg — played by Salazar — who’s rescued from a scrap heap and becomes a bounty hunter tracking down criminals.

Fox also announced Tuesday that it had swapped the dates for “The Predator” and “The Darkest Minds.” “The Predator” moved back six weeks to Sept. 14 and “The Darkest Minds” moved up to Aug. 3.

Additionally, Fox set a Nov. 8, 2019 release date for “Death on the Nile,” directed by [link

Fox bumps Alita: Battle Angel and Shane Black’s The Predator, while announcing Death on the Nile for 2019

It has taken decades to finally make it to the big-screen, but now you’re going to have to wait even longer to set your big eyes on the James Cameron produced, Robert Rodriguez directed science fiction epic, Alita: Battle Angel.

Fox have announced that the Japanese Manga adaptation will be pushed from its mid-July release to December 21st. The shift in date shouldn’t be too worrying for a film that requires a multitude of post-production SFX, but this move will put Alita: Battle Angel in direct competition with Aquaman, Bumblebee, and the Will Ferrell/John C. Reilly comedy Holmes and Watson. They’re all established brands, whereas the James Cameron pet-project is an ambitious sci-fi adapted from a cult source, and we all remember how well Ghost in the Shell fared.

Shane Black’s Predator Reboot Slips To September As Fox Shuffles Release Slate

It’s official: The Predator has been delayed…and not for the first time.

Shane Black’s long-gestating reboot was initially scheduled to arrive on March 2nd, 2018, before 20th Century Fox brought that release date forward by a total of four weeks. The Predator didn’t hang around in February for long, though, as the starry project quickly relocated to August. Now, Exhibitor Relations brings word of a fourth (and presumably final) due date: September 14th, 2018.

That places Black and Fred Dekker’s franchise reboot in the slot once occupied by It, and Exhibitor contends that Fox is “obviously hoping to scare up some of that mad money New Line’s adaptation made last year in what is typically a box office dead zone.”

Disappointing though that may be, The Predator isn’t the only big-name tentpole to be affected by Fox’s reshuffling effort, as Alita: Battle Angel, the

Tim Miller and Brian Michael Bendis team for mystery X-Men movie 143

Deadline is reporting that Fox has set Deadpool helmer Tim Miller to direct a mystery X-Men movie going by the title 143, which is being scripted by acclaimed comic book writer Brian Michael Bendis.

The movie is shrouded in secrecy, but may well refer to 1981’s Uncanny X-Men #143, which sees the character of Kitty Pryde battling a demon when she is left alone at the X-Mansion on Christmas Eve. Supporting this is rumours from last month, which said that Miller was working on a movie based around Kitty Pryde, played by Ellen Page in X-Men: The Last Stand and X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Miller is currently gearing up to shoot the James Cameron-produced Terminator reboot/sequel, and would presumably move on to the X-Men project once production has wrapped on that.

Despite an impending purchase by Disney, Fox has several X-Men movies in various stages of development, including Gambit,

The Real Reason The Avatar Sequels Are Taking So Long

It’s been close to nine years since audiences were introduced to the world of Pandora in Avatar, and the first of four sequels is still over two years away. Why is it taking so long for James Cameron to follow up the biggest film of all time?

A CGI-laden sci-fi epic that soon became the highest grossing film of all time, Avatar was considered a game-changer at the time, one that lay the foundations for the special effects heavy franchise blockbusters of today.

Secret X-Men Movie 143 Gets Deadpool Director Tim Miller

20th Century Fox is expanding its X-Men franchise even further, with a secret project called 143. While no plot details have been given, there is already quite a bit of talent lined up behind the camera, with Deadpool director Tim Miller set to take the helm, working from a script that is currently being developed by comic book legend Brian Michael Bendis. The studio hasn't set a production schedule or a release date at this time, but this report did confirm that the project is set within the X-Men universe.

With no clues given as to the 143 title, its possible this title could refer to a specific X-Men comic book issue. The original X-Men comics from the 1960s ended its run of original issues at #66, although Marvel later reprinted older comic book stories as issues #67-93. The Uncanny X-Men comics by iconic writer Chris Claremont helped breathe new life into the

Donald Glover discusses his Deadpool animated series

Back in May of last year it was announced that Donald Glover is developing a ten-episode Deadpool animated series for Fxx, and speaking to PopCulture to promote the second season of his hit show Atlanta, Glover was asked if he’s feeling any pressure tackling such a fan-favourite character.

“That it’s funny,” he replied. “That one it just seems really easy. There’s not as much to hold sacred, in a weird way. I know people love Deadpool and I know people are big comic book geeks, but it’s not the same as like Lando or Atlanta, where you have a whole city on your back. Deadpool is very aware of himself, so, I don’t have to live up to anything. So it’s been actually, quite easy.”

Glover, who will soon be seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story as Lando Calrissian, is writing the Deadpool

Rob Liefeld compares Deadpool 2 to James Cameron’s Aliens

This past week we got our first real look at Deadpool 2 with the arrival of a new trailer for the hotly-anticipated follow-up to 2016’s blockbuster X-Men spinoff [watch it here].

Following its release, comic book writer Rob Liefeld – who co-created both Deadpool and the newly-introduced Cable – spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the movie where he compared it to James Cameron’s Aliens in terms of upping the ante and spectacle.

Deadpool was Alien,” said Liefeld. “It’s brilliant. It completely works. It’s a masterpiece. Deadpool 2 is Aliens. It’s when James Cameron came in and said, ‘Ok you want me to do this? We’re going to make it bigger, put in loads more action.’”

With John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch at the helm, it would certainly seem like we can expect to see some impressive action sequences in Deadpool 2, and given the success of the first movie,

Deadpool Creator Says The Sequel Is Like James Cameron’s Aliens

Even with 2018 being packed with blockbusters – superhero and otherwise – it’s probably safe to say that Deadpool 2 is likely among those that are most anticipated. I mean, not only is it following in the footsteps of its predecessor, which just so happened to be the highest grossing R-rated movie of all time, but it also includes the long awaited live action debuts of Cable and Domino, two cult favorites in the comic book community.

That being said, it was more than pleasing to see the former featured heavily in the first full trailer that dropped earlier today. Aside from having a laugh at the expense of a certain CGI mustache fiasco that occurred recently, we got a fair idea of how the straight-faced Cable will play off the irreverent Wade Wilson – and it’s thus far proven to be pretty freaking entertaining.

But if creator Rob Liefeld is to be believed,

Rob Liefeld Compares Deadpool 2 to Aliens, Teases ‘Loads More Action’

Following the release of Deadpool 2‘s first full-length trailer, Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld compared the film to 1986’s Aliens, the second film in the Alien franchise.

Deadpool was Alien. It’s brilliant. It completely works. It’s a masterpiece,” Liefeld told The Hollywood Reporter. “Deadpool 2 is Aliens. It’s when James Cameron came in and said, ‘Ok you want me to do this? We’re going to make it bigger, put in loads more action.’ ”
