James Cameron on ‘Avatar’ Sequels & Their Real-World Themes

5 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

James Cameron’s Avatar remains, after breaking the record five years ago, the highest-grossing movie of all time. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that the director has three sequels in pre-production (with a rumored collective budget of $1 billion) and is preparing to shoot them all back-to-back, with leads Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington reprising their roles as lovers and freedom fighters Jake Sully and Neytiri.

Whether the thought of Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 has you jumping for joy or just feeling very tired, the next few chapters of Cameron’s epic sci-fi saga are nonetheless going to be barrelling their way into theaters starting from December 2016. The first ...

Watch: The Clock Is Ticking In Trailer For Thriller 'The Factory' Starring John Cusack

9 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Trying to outdo Nicolas Cage in the number of mediocre movies he can appear in, John Cusack is in yet another movie we didn't know existed (or possibly forgot about). It's called "The Factory," and apparently it's been on DVD since February. Huh. In any case, the U.K. trailer is here, and the folks who cut it really want to make sure a voiceover holds your hand,  explaining everything every step of the way. Co-starring Jennifer Carpenter ("Dexter"), Mae Whitman ("Arrested Development") and Katherine Waterston (one of our 2014 Actresses On The Rise), the generic story follows a cop hunting a serial killer who gets more than he bargained for when his own daughter goes missing. Morgan O'Neill (Sam Worthington surf movie "Drift") co-wrote and directed this wintery procedural, which doesn't seem to shake up the genre too much. But hey, if this kind of mediocrity helps Cusack keep his lights on, »

Naomie Harris And Beau Knapp Join Jake Gyllenhaal In Southpaw

11 August 2014 6:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Jake Gyllenhaal won’t be going into the ring alone for his upcoming boxing drama Southpaw, as last week, Naomie Harris and Beau Knapp both joined the Antoine Fuqua-directed film, which was penned by Sons of Anarchy writer creator Kurt Sutter.

Southpaw centers on a troubled fighter with dreams of becoming a welterweight champion, whose personal life crumbles even as his career soars. Harris will play Angela, a social worker who works with Gyllenhaal’s character and his daughter. With roles as Moneypenny in Skyfall and Winnie Mandela in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom under her belt, Harris’ star is rising fast with no signs of slowing down. That Harris has boarded the project likely means that Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, previously in talks for the same role, has dropped out of talks.

For his part, Knapp, who had a major role in The Signal earlier this year, »

Zoe Saldana Gives an Update on Avatar Sequels

30 July 2014 3:23 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

While promoting Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy," Zoe Saldana was asked to give an updated about the next three "Avatar" sequels, which will bring back not only her, but also Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, and Stephen Lang. "James Cameron is still working on the final drafts of the script and then everyone in the cast will get the call," she explained. "We're going to be shooting mainly in Los Angeles and that will make things easier for me since I live there. Because we're doing the sequels back-to-back and it's going to take at least eight or nine months or more to finish the [three] films." "Avatar 2" is set to hit theaters in December of 2016. "Avatar 3" will follow a year later. And "Avatar 4" will come a year after that. »

Zoe Saldana Gives Update on Avatar Sequels

29 July 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

If you’re looking for any new story information on James Cameron’s upcoming Avatar sequels, you might as well go digging in your backyard for unobtainium. Cameron’s follow ups to the highest grossing movie of all time are still shrouded in secrecy, but star Zoe Saldana was able to offer a small update on where the writer-director is on his scripts and the approximate time it will take them to shoot the three sequels back-to-back. 

While promoting Guardians of the Galaxy, Saldana told the Daily Mirror:

"James Cameron is still working on the final drafts of the script and then everyone in the cast will get the call. We're going to be shooting mainly in Los Angeles and that will make things easier for me since I live there. Because we're doing the sequels back-to-back and it's going to take at least eight or nine months or more to finish the (three) films. »

'Avatar' Sequels Will Shoot for 8 to 9 Months

29 July 2014 7:51 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Avatar is still the number one movie of all time, which has allowed James Cameron to shoot not one, but three sequels all back-to-back. These movies will bring back the original's leading lady, Zoe Saldana. And while she's trading blue skin for green in this weekend's Guardians of the Galaxy, she will be heading back to Pandora soon enough. She took a break from talking about her Marvel Phase Two adventure to discuss going back to work for director James Cameron.

While Zoe Saldana obviously can't give us any story details at this time, she does offer a shooting schedule, and confirms the location for the production, which will require full-time Motion Capture.

‘Sabotage’ Review

25 July 2014 9:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Arnold SchwarzeneggerSam Worthington, Joe Maganiello, Terrence HowardOlivia WilliamsHarold Perrineau | Written by David Ayer, Skip Woods | Directed by David Ayer

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s journey back to the big screen has been fraught with financial peril. While the Expendables films have done decent enough business, his other ventures since his return from government have proven to be fairly rocky. The Last Stand only scrapped past making back its production budget worldwide, and although his Stallone co-starrer Escape Plan managed to make over $100 million, his latest solo starring vehicle Sabotage has made less than $20 million across the globe which used to turn out in their droves, once for a film when the Austrian Oak got pregnant. Oh how times change…

In all honesty though, its easy to see why Sabotage would not bring in wide audiences. David Ayer, who has made his name on manly men being men films »

Hercules Review

23 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Brett Ratner

Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Ian McShane, John Hurt, Ingrid Bolso Berdal, Joseph Fiennes, Rufus Sewell

Running Time: 98minutes

Certification:12A

Synopsis: Both man and myth, Hercules (Dwayne Johnson) leads a band of mercenaries to help end a bloody civil war in the land of Thrace and return the rightful king to his throne. A tormented soul from birth, Hercules has the strength of a God and a reputation that precedes him, but is his legend everything it appears?

Let’s be honest, Hollywood’s recent attempts to revive the glorious sword & sandal epics of yesteryear have been uninspired, style over substance, CG puff pieces that (bar a few exceptions) have failed to impress. We’ve had far more stinkers than stonkers and Thn is sad to say that Hercules does nothing to boost the numbers in the latter’s favour. Hercules takes the best elements of films like »

Sam Worthington's "Dogs" Becomes A "Prayer"

22 July 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Jonathan Mostow-directed, Sam Worthington-led thriller "For The Dogs" has undergone a title change to "Hunter’s Prayer" and scored a financial commitment from Screen Yorkshire.

Based on Kevin Wignall's novel, Worthington plays a solitary assassin who is hired to kill a young girl but can’t bring himself to do it. After he fails to carry out the task, both are marked for death and hunted across Europe.

Their only hope is to find out why her family were killed and bring those responsible to justice. Emma Roberts and Hailee Steinfeld were both previously linked to the project but are no longer in the frame, so casting continues for the female lead.

Worthington, Navid McIlhargey, Anthony Rhulen, Chris Milburn, Paul Leyden, and John and Michael Schwarz will produce. Filming begins in the UK and Hungary next year.
