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...
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
“I’m a huge fan of Vr, and I started Double R Productions with Racer Max to create innovative content for the medium,” said Robert Rodriguez. “For us to be making our first project with Rick, Andy and the Surreal team is a great way to kick things off. And it was a thrill to be working with the awesome Michelle Rodriguez again in this exciting entertainment space.”
“The Limit first-of-its-kind kind series in a new format that delivers a blockbuster, lean-back cinematic experience that audiences can’t find anywhere else in the Vr marketplace right now,” added Rick Rey, Co-President of STXsurreal.
The short-form series sees Michelle Rodriguez playing a genetically-enhanced

10. Titanic (1997)
Director: James Cameron
Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates
Genre: Romantic Epic
What’s it about? A little known movie about the ill-fated first, and only, voyage of the giant ship Titanic, encapsulating the romance between a third class passenger and a first class passenger during it’s journey to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
Why watch? The romance between Titanic’s Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Rose (Kate Winslet) is a tragic yet wonderful love story. The two passengers
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 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
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.
“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 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 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
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,
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.
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
“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
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,
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,
“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.’ ”
