Will Avatar sequels use new high frame rate 4K 3D system?
Speaking to Empire, Cameron said: "I can tell you one thing about them. They're gonna be bitchin'.
"You will s**t yourself with your mouth wide open."
Avatar 2 will be released in December 2016.
Cameron recently won a lawsuit against an artist who claimed that Avatar stole from his paintings.
The director has also dismissed the potential of virtual reality technology, insisting that there is no place for it beyond games.

James Cameron has spent the past few years hammering away at development on the upcoming trio of sequels to his 2009 mega-blockbuster Avatar, and with the films gearing up to go into back-to-back production the director has provided a brief update during a chat with Empire.
Cameron has been working on the screenplays for Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 with several writers, including Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Shane Salerno (Savages), and Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and he went on to discuss the writing process:
“I think we met for seven months and we whiteboarded out every scene in every film together,” Cameron explains, “and I didn’t assign each writer which film they were going to work on until the last day. I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they’d tune out every »

Just in case audiences weren’t sufficiently excited for the three planned sequels to James Cameron’s 2009 epic “Avatar,” or if they had perhaps forgotten how utterly the first film blew their minds, Cameron promised that the new films will indeed be “bitchin’.”
“I can tell you one thing about them,” Cameron told Empire Magazine. “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will s— yourself with your mouth wide open.”
20th Century Fox’s first “Avatar” sequel is due in theaters December 2016, with successive films expected to bow in December 2017 and 2018, respectively.

James Cameron is currently working on the scripts for his Avatar sequels, Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 in New Zealand, with production scheduled to begin sometime in the near future. Very little is known about the story for these follow-ups, except that fans will be taken back to the magical land of Pandora. During a new interview with Empire, James Cameron doesn't offer any story specifics, but revealed that they will be "bitchin."
"I can tell you one thing about them. They're gonna be bitchin'. You will s--t yourself with your mouth wide open."
The filmmaker did clarify one technical aspect of his sequels. Despite rumors that he planned on shooting at 60 frames per second and, most recently, at 120 Fps, James Cameron said that he has settled on shooting at 48 Fps, like Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy.
"My thinking at the time was that 60 [Fps] might be a »
There are a few things you can probably expect from James Cameron's brewing trifecta of "Avatar" sequels. More Sam Worthington, a return to Pandora, and more eye-popping visual effects. But just how dazzling will his movies be? Well, Cameron is never one to mince words. “I can tell you one thing about them, they’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open,” he told Empire. Indeed, the filmmaker is always eager to push the latest new fangled technology to try and wow moviegoers, and he's not backing away from the frame-rate debate, promising the next films will double the standard 24fps. "My thinking at the time was that 60 [Fps] might be a better segue to the video market,” he said of earlier attempts to increase frame rate. “I’ll be plugging into a system that’s a little more mature, so it makes sense for »

If we were asked to describe the upcoming Avatar sequels using one word and one world only, we’d find it quite difficult. Ambitious? Derivative? World-building? Well, maybe we’re cheating with the latter, but such a question doesn’t trouble director James Cameron who, when asked the story behind the next chapters in the sci-fi franchise, described them as “bitchin.'” No, really.
Speaking to Empire, the esteemed director surmised the sequels in wonderful fashion:
“I can tell you one thing about them,” Cameron laughs when Empire nonchalantly enquiries about storylines. “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.”
It’s a bold claim, no doubt. But given that the original film pulled in a staggering $2.8 billion, Cameron has reason to be confident. Further in the interview, the filmmaker also clarified the format in which the movies will be shot, after previous reports suggested that Avatar 2, »

While Jennifer Aniston already somewhat remade herself as a more sleazy, darker performer in both Horrible Bosses movies, Pete Hammond of Deadline is now waging a war to see Aniston nominated for an Oscar for her work in Cake, a dramedy about a woman going through therapy after the suicide of a friend (Anna Kendrick). She then starts seeing hallucinations of the woman while dating her widowed husband (Sam Worthington). Aniston goes without makeup during the film and even gained weight in order to deliver a more down-to-Earth performance, earning her comparisons to Charlize Theron in Monster.
The Daniel Barnz directed Cake premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and is now pushing for a short, Oscar qualifying run release prior to a wide release in early 2015. Watch the first trailer for the film below.

Cake follows Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston) who is in pain. Her physical pain is evident in the scars that line her body and the way she carries herself, wincing with each tentative step. She's no good at hiding her emotional pain either. Blunt to the point of searing insult, Claire's anger seethes out of her with nearly every interaction. She has driven away her husband, her friends - even her chronic-pain support group has kicked her out.
The only one left in Claire's otherwise solitary existence is her housekeeper-cum-caretaker, Silvana (Academy Award nominee Adriana Barraza), who barely tolerates her boss' need for liquor and prescription pills. »

Jennifer Aniston doesn’t wear any makeup in her latest film — save for scars and other disfigurements. The former Friend and rom-com regular takes a right turn with Cake, playing a woman suffering with chronic pain who carries plenty of emotional hurt as well.

Awards season is heating up, and one of the potential Best Actress contenders, believe it or not, may be Jennifer Aniston. The actress rarely goes down the indie road, but when she has before (The Good Girl), it's resulted in some solid work. This time she's getting plenty of acclaim for Cake, a film that strips down Aniston to being a plain, scarred, troubled woman, angry at the world and everyone around her. And there's an interesting supporting cast here too with Anna Kendrick, Sam Worthington and Adriana Barraza appearing as well. The buzz indicates the film may not be as good as Aniston's performance, but we'll see. Here's the first trailer for Daniel Barnz's Cake, originally from ABC News: Cake is directed by Daniel Barnz (Beastly, Won't Back Down) from a script by Patrick Tobin (No Easy Way). Claire Simmons (Jennifer Aniston) is in pain. Her physical »

A new Cake trailer has been released for director Daniel Barnz’s upcoming drama. The film stars Jennifer Aniston as a woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of a member of her chronic pain support group. When she starts delving into the woman’s life, she develops a relationship with her widower and grapples with her own personal tragedy. I think Aniston’s a really talented comedic actress, so I’m very interested by the prospect of seeing her lead a dramatic film. Her performance drew a bit of Oscar buzz after the film’s premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and she certainly appears to bring a significant amount of complexity to the role. Check out the new Cake trailer after the jump. The film also stars Anna Kendrick, Sam Worthington, Chris Messina, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, Britt Robertson, Lucy Walters, Camille Mana, Manuel Garcia Rulfo, »

Cake is not a Doors-style docudrama about the deadpan rock band — instead, it's a dramedy about a snarky chronic-pain sufferer, starring a de-glammed Jennifer Aniston. They're calling it Aniston's Monster, but judging from this trailer, it's got so much more: Anna Kendrick as a ghost! Sam Worthington as a normal human! Filliam H. Muffman, reunited onscreen! There is at least one alternate timeline where this film wins all the Oscars. »

Jennifer Aniston’s career looks set to soar to even greater heights in the Friends star’s latest drama, Cake. From director Daniel Barnz comes a black, black comedy that dabbles with a string of serious issues at the heart of its story. While thus far we’ve only had a brief glimpse at a clip, thanks to The Wrap, the first full trailer is now available for your viewing pleasure.
For the pic, Aniston wrestles with weightier material than normal as leading lady, Claire Simmons. A pill-popping chronic pain sufferer, she’s an angsty character who is plagued by guilt after a young woman in her support group, Nina (Anna Kendrick), commits suicide. Following that painful incident, she becomes obsessed with Nina’s widower (Sam Worthington) and soon after Nina’s ghost pops up (like Alan Rickman in Truly, Madly, Deeply) to offer advice.

Jennifer Aniston goes to new places in Cake as Claire, a woman who's become addicted to painkillers after being in a car accident that killed her young son. The movie introduces us to Claire's messy grief: her bad attitude, her estranged relationship with her husband (Chris Messina), and her surly demeanor at the group counseling where she's supposed to be getting help. It's there she develops an obsession with a deceased member of the group, Nina (Anna Kendrick), and soon she starts hallucinating her and insinuating herself in her life, even hanging out with Nina's husband (Sam Worthington). Cake had a warm reception at Tiff earlier this year, and Aniston has been getting buzz for losing makeup and vanity and showing us a raw, hurting character. Cake comes out in wide release in January.

Jennifer Aniston is on a multitude of quests in the new Cake trailer. First, it's pills — getting them and popping them, one by one by one. Then, it's piecing together the life of late support group member Nina (Anna Kendrick), which requires confronting her husband, played by Sam Worthington. "I'm not a stalker, not in the traditional sense," she tells him, but he then responds, "I can't save you — I can barely save myself and my kid."
