Considering that Avatar 2’s release date recently disappeared from its original slot of December next year, it was widely considered that the reason was James Cameron being nowhere near ready to start filming. That school of thought is about to be adjusted, as production is set to start in April in New Zealand.
With the production start date firmly in place, expect a slew of casting announcements to follow. Sam Worthington is probably thanking the high heavens, considering his Hollywood career is currently circling the drain. He’s been relegated to bit parts in big productions, last seen climbing the kiddie slopes of the mountain adjacent to Everest last year whilst Jason Clarke and Jake Gyllenhaal got to play on the big boy peaks.
Cameron has previously been open about the fact that the sequel will either focus on or feature the oceans of Pandora, moving »

G’Day USA hosted its annual Los Angeles Gala on Thursday night at Vibiana in Downtown L.A., where distinguished Australian guests and celebrities including Hugh Jackman, Mariah Carey, Nicole Richie, Joel Madden, Brett Ratner and 5 Seconds of Summer gathered to honor key Australian figures in entertainment and celebrate the relationship between the U.S. and Australia.
The diplomatic networking event, which was hosted by Australian actresses and previous Oscar nominees, Rachel Griffiths and Toni Collette, kicked off with a duet performance of “My Romance” by Seal and “The Voice” Australia winner Harrison Craig.
“I would like to take a moment to express our great gratitude to this great nation for welcoming all of us Australians and giving us the opportunity to share our passions on the world stage, to take over your casinos, to steal your Oscars,” said Griffiths. “I just really hope that Donald Trump doesn’t build »

Rick (Bale) is a slave to the Hollywood system. He is addicted to success but simultaneously despairs at the emptiness of his life. He is at home in a world of illusions but seeks real life. Like the tarot card of the title, Rick is easily bored and needs outside stimulation. But the Knight of Cups is also an artist, a romantic and an adventurer.
In Terrence Malick’s seventh film a gliding camera once again accompanies a tormented hero on his search for meaning. Once again a voiceover is laid over images which also seek their own authenticity. And once again Malick seems to put the world out of joint. His symphonic flow of images contrasts cold, »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Pictures have removed the sequel to "Terminator: Genysis" off their release schedule and replaced it with director Seth Gordon's comedy-revamp of "Baywatch", starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Ilfenesh Hadera, Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach.
"Terminator 2" was set to open on May 19th, 2017; but with poor box-office performance in the U.S. market and the negative reception from "Terminator: Genysis", it looks as though Paramount Pictures and Skydance Entertainment, who produced the film, will have to rethink their strategy for releasing the next entry in the "Terminator" franchise. "Terminator: Genysis" was directed by Alan Taylor and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Jason Clarke, Byung-hun Lee and Matt Smith.

It looks like a decent international performance at the box office hasn’t been enough to convince Paramount Pictures that a sequel to Terminator Genisys is worth the investment, as the studio has now officially pulled the tentatively – and hideously – titled Terminator 2 from its planned May 19th 2017 release date.
Terminator Genisys was intended as a relaunch of the franchise, and the first of a new trilogy of films. However, it received some scathing reviews upon release last year, and flopped domestically with just $89.8 million. It performed better in international markets, pulling in $350.8 million (including $113.2 million in China), and there had been talk that its $440.6 million worldwide gross would have been enough to get the sequel the green light.
Terminator Genisys was directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) and saw Arnold Schwarzenegger leading a cast that also includes Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »

“Terminator: Genisys,” the franchise’s reboot starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke and Emilia Clarke,” grossed only $89 million domestically last summer before slightly rebounding overseas to $350 million. It was also a misfire with critics, scoring a weak 26% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.
Skydance, which co-financed “Terminator: Genisys,” had originally planned a new trilogy with Paramount but said in October were “re-adjusting” after the disappointing ticket sales.
Paramount announced in 2014 that it had the dated “Terminator 2” for May 19, 2017, and “Terminator 3” on June 29, 2018. Under rules, North American rights to The Terminator franchise would revert back to creator James Cameron in 2019 — 35 years after the original “Terminator” was released.

Well, this was inevitable. After scathing reviews from critics and a thumbs down from fans, Paramount tried to fight numerous reports that the planned sequels to "Terminator Genisys" were on hold, with producer Dana Goldberg saying last fall they were "re-adjusting." Well, it looks like they re-adjusted the followup right off the release calendar. Read More: Review: 'Terminator: Genisys' Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, And Jason Clarke The studio has pulled the followup to the franchise reboot off the schedule, and instead, put the Dwayne Johnson starring "Baywatch" in its place on May 19, 2017. That movie has Dwayne Johnson leading an R-rated take on the corny '90s series, and my guess is that Paramount realized they'll probably do much better to put their dollars on that project, rather than trying to keep 'Terminator' active. So what's the future of "The Terminator" franchise? Well, the North American rights. »

Real-life recreations are most definitely in favour at the moment and human survival stories are always a smart choice, so can Everest climb the metaphorical mountain of interest? Well, it definitely gives us a strong, believable visual representation of the both the glory and misery of the mighty peak but, most importantly, presents its lead characters as real, every-day people, which is exactly who they were at the moment all that comes occurred.
The film follows two specific expeditions from the bottom to the top and although isn’t a exact real-telling of the 1996 climb, if »

It’s one of the most dangerous climbs in the world.
Based off of true events, “Everest” is about two expeditions who were trapped in a massive snowstorm during the descent from the peak of Mount Everest. They were challenged by the harshest conditions of blistering winds and freezing temperatures in order to survive this natural danger.
Latino-Review has a Blu-ray combo pack of the film and a limited edition Everest carabiner to give away to one lucky random reader.

We’re deep into the post-holiday abyss, temperatures have plummeted and winter yawns on for a good couple of months yet. So if you want to feel better about your January lot, now’s as good a time as any to watch Everest (Universal, 12), in which the digit-severing blizzard that killed eight mountaineers on the mountain’s slopes in 1996 whips away at the screen with near-tangible fury. Shot with steely grace and bone-jangling sound design, Baltasar Kormákur’s real-life disaster epic is a triumph of sensation, giving even those of us who pant after a few flights of stairs a sense of masochistic, exhilarated peak-lust. As personal drama it’s less rewarding. Despite an all-star ensemble, led with tight-jawed authority by Jason Clarke, Kormákur gives us little sense »

After highlighting 50 films that are most certainly worth seeing this year, it’s time we venture into the unknown. While a multitude of 2016 previews simply regurgitate a list of dated releases, we’ve set out to focus on 100 films we’re genuinely looking forward to, regardless of their marketing budgets. While some might not have a release date — let alone any confirmed festival premiere — most have wrapped production and will likely debut at some point in 2016, so make sure to check back for updates over the next twelve months and beyond.
It should be noted that there are a number of films we’re greatly looking forward to, but whose release we aren’t confident about, including the next features from Claire Denis and Michael Haneke. (Rest assured, however, that we’ll have updates as they come in.)
