Colonel Quaritch Plays a Big Role in All 4 Avatar Sequels

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Way back in 2013, director James Cameron made the surprising revelation that Avatar star Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Quaritch, despite seemingly dying in the original blockbuster. Since then, the filmmaker has expanded his massive franchise from three sequels to four, with Avatar 2's release pushed one full year to Christmas 2018. While these sequels appear to be constantly evolving, Stephen Lang revealed that James Cameron is still planning on bringing this character back for all four sequels.

During his interview from 2013, James Cameron wouldn't exactly say how Quaritch would be back, only teasing that this sequel is "a sci-fi story," hinting there are any number of ways he could be resurrected. The filmmaker also teased that his characters will "evolve into unexpected places" over the course of this franchise, but those statements were over three years ago. During an interview with Mashable, Stephen Lang made it clear »

Stephen Lang Talks Avatar 2 Delay

28 August 2016 4:33 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just like Titanic and the first Avatar before it, Avatar 2 is another James Cameron movie that has been constantly delayed. It was originally set for release way back in 2013. But it has now since been pushed to December 2018, nearly a decade after the original debuted in 2009. Villain Stephen Lang is set to reprise his villain role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, a job that is keeping him from becoming Cable in Deadpool 2. In a recent interview with Aint It Cool News, Lang confirmed that the movie will begin shooting early in 2017 to make it's intended release date. He had this to say about the delay.

"Yeah, the reading of things. We're getting there. We're in good shape. We'll be starting certainly early in the new year. But you know, the thing is, as you can imagine with a film like Avatar, it's not like the work hasn't been going on. »

A Lesson of the ‘Ben-Hur’ Debacle: Movie Stars Still Matter

20 August 2016 11:19 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Up until recently, when a movie turned out to be a major bomb — not just a financial failure but a symbol of waste, a legend, a stink bomb — there was usually a movie star’s name imprinted on it. The star became part of the movie’s infamy, and he also took on some of the blame. Just think of a folly like “Ishtar” (1987), in which the combined star wallop of Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty couldn’t add up to a hill of beans in the desert, or “Battlefield Earth” (2000), which proved that John Travolta in the middle of the Travoltassance couldn’t sell a sci-fi epic that was really an obsequious vanity project. “Heaven’s Gate,” the movie that brought down a movie studio, was the exception that proved the rule: No one really thought of it as a Kris Kristofferson film, but that’s because there was »

Andrew Garfield Is Featured In Emotional First Trailer For Mel Gibson’s Drama Hacksaw Ridge

28 July 2016 11:25 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Hacksaw Ridge is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss (Andrew Garfield) who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong.

As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

From Oscar-winning director Mel Gibson (Braveheart), here’s a first look at the powerful new trailer. The film will open in November – prior to Veterans Day 2016.

28 July 2016 9:34 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's been 10 years since controversy lightning-rod Mel Gibson got behind the camera, creating the blood-soaked Mesoamerican adventure Apocalypto in 2006. And the newly released first trailer for the religious war drama Hacksaw Ridge. suggests he still has a taste for religious, violent and epic filmmaking.

The film chronicles the life and times of Desmond T. Doss (Andrew Garfield), a practicing Seventh-Day Adventist who served during World War II. His faith forbade him from fighting in combat, so the conscientious objector volunteered his services as a medic; he'd save the lives of »

Lionsgate has unveiled the first Hacksaw Ridge trailer, Mel Gibson‘s World War II drama about a conscientious objector in battle. It's the first film that Gibson has directed since the hugely-underappreciated Apocalypto in 2006.

Hacksaw Ridge also stars Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, Richard Roxburgh and Vince Vaughn.

Here's the official synopsis:

Andrew Garfield Throws Caution To The Wind In Electrifying New Hacksaw Ridge Trailer

28 July 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Meet Desmond Doss, the unlikely war hero and conscientious objector – that is, someone who is against serving in the armed forces – who headlines Mel Gibson’s upcoming war thriller, Hacksaw Ridge.

Awarded with the Congressional Medal of Honor in the aftermath of WWII, Doss’ death-defying tale is stranger that fiction, when he charged onto the scarred front lines of Okinawa without a weapon to call his own. Inexplicably, the defiant pacifist still managed to save 75 men all without firing a weapon and in today’s all-new trailer, we see Andrew Garfield charge into the mouth of madness.

Also starring Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Teresa Palmer, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths and Vince Vaughn, Hacksaw Ridge charges into theaters on November 4. It’s opening against strong competition, too, with Doctor Strange, Loving, Bleed for This and DreamWorks animation Trolls all penciled in for the same release window.

Andrew Garfield Charges Into Awards Season in ‘Hacksaw Ridge’

28 July 2016 9:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

If there’s one thing Oscar loves, it’s a gritty and inspiring WWII drama. For your consideration in the 2016 awards season: “Hacksaw Ridge,” a big-screen retelling of the Battle of Okinawa and the heroism of U.S. Army medic Desmond T. Doss.  Directed by Mel Gibson and written by Andrew Knight and Robert Schenkkan, from a story by Gregory Crosby, “Hacksaw Ridge” stars Andrew Garfield as Doss, a Seventh-day Adventist who enlisted to fight in the islands off Japan—and refused to carry a weapon because of his religious beliefs. Despite ridicule and disbelief from his superiors, he single-handedly saved 75 lives in battle without ever firing a gun, eventually becoming the first conscientious objector in American history to earn the Medal of Honor. In the trailer below, we see glimpses of the immeasurable odds Doss faced under enemy fire as he continued to rescue his comrades. “With the world »

Hacksaw Ridge Trailer: Andrew Garfield Is Unarmed in the "Hellfire of Battle" in This True Story

28 July 2016 8:20 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Andrew Garfield takes the lead role in Hacksaw Ridge, the bloody true tale of Desmond Doss, an army medic who was morally opposed to killing. Doss saved 75 men in Okinawa during WWII, all without a single weapon. The film is directed by Mel Gibson, and costars Teresa Palmer, Vince Vaughn (seeming completely out of place here) and Sam Worthington. Garfield's accent is a bit much, but maybe it'll be the performance of the year - who knows? The movie opens Nov. 4! »

We’ve seen a lot of war movies, but none quite like this.

The first trailer for Mel Gibson’s latest film Hacksaw Ridge was just released, and it tells the true story of American Army medic Desmond T. Doss, who served in World War II without carrying a gun or firing a single bullet. Violence went against his belief system, so he instead focused on saving men on the front lines that otherwise would not have made it.

Andrew Garfield plays Doss in this adaptation, and Teresa Palmer, Sam Worthington, Vince Vaughn, and Hugo Weaving also star. As the first conscientious objector to earn the Medal of Honor, Doss’s story is one that deserves to be told, and we can’t »

‘Hacksaw Ridge’ Trailer: Mel Gibson’s WWII Drama Stars Andrew Garfield As A Conscientious Objector On The Front Lines

28 July 2016 7:47 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It’s been ten years since Mel Gibson directed his last feature, the epic film “Apocalypto,” but now Gibson returns behind the camera with a WWII drama about the first conscientious objector to ever win the Medal of Honor. The film follows Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield), a Seventh Day Adventist whose religious beliefs prevented him from picking up a weapon. He goes through training, taking the brunt of abuse from his fellow soldiers who believes he’s a coward, but eventually lands on the front lines without a weapon in hand. Doss ended up saving 75 of his comrades during the Battle of Okinawa and was eventually awarded the Medal of Honor by President Truman for his bravery. The film also stars Vince Vaughn (“Swingers”), Sam Worthington (“Avatar”), Luke Bracey (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation”), Hugo Weaving (“The Lord of the Rings”), Ryan Corr (“Where The Wild Things Ar”), and more. »
