Two new photos from "Terminator Salvation" are now online. Directed by McG, the May 22 opener stars Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Bryce Dallas Howard, Moon Bloodgood and Common. In the film, set in post-apocalyptic 2018, Bale stars as John Connor, the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they uncover the terrible secret »
Today we have two new images for the upcoming fourth installment to the Terminator franchise.
The first of the two features Christian Bale Playing with Skorponok’s tail while air-transporting it back to the United States after a fierce battle in the desert. Wait a sec… wrong movie.
This is actually John Connor examining a Hydrobot as seen in the Terminator Salvation concept art I posted about back in November. I don’t particularly care about this Terminator design as I don’t feel it fits into the pre-established Terminator universe from the earlier movies and even the show.
Obviously, my feelings can change once getting a good look at it in the film and I’m pretty excited to see how it plays out. Apparently, the Hydrobot can attack by sea or air. The film is introducing ten (that’s right 10!) New Terminator designs into the new movie. Whether »

The first official picture from the set of James Cameron's upcoming movie Avatar has surfaced over at the La Times. Don't get excited. It could easily be a picture of James Cameron on the set of one of his underwater, submarine documentaries. Apparently Avatar is being filmed on the bridge of the Uss Alabama. Sitting next to him is the movie's star, Sam Worthington. Click the image to hit the La Times feature for more info: »
The Los Angeles Times has a first look behind the scenes photo of James Cameron directing Sam Worthington in his big budget sci-fi 3D film Avatar. Look at the incredible performance capture and 3D rig, both of which were probably created for this film, just off camera. And if you look where Cameron is pointing, you will see one of the alien creatures from the movie projected onto the set using a new state of the art holographic projector thinggy. Too bad all of this is happening off camera. You can read the attached one paragraph article (I’ll sum it up: the movie is going to be cool) at LATimes.com. Related Stories

A behind-the-scenes image from James Cameron’s upcoming sci-fi film Avatar has been released. And no it’s not of some key scene or revelation of any of the CG elements promised by Cameron. But simply a picture of him and cast member Sam Worthington (Terminator Salvation), pointing at something presumably fascinating off-picture.

Nice headset, James…
I think it’s safe to say that Avatar is high on a lot of movie fans’ most anticipated list. Who could resist the return of the man who brought us the spectacle that was Titanic, the biggest money making movie of all time? Whatever you think of that movie, what can’t be denied is the impact it had; the task Cameron had of making that film was monumental at the time.
But who wants to follow that kind of success? »

If you tied us to a chair, stripped us naked and dripped hot wax onto our most sensitive of areas while demanding we pick one single film that was going to define 2009 then, between stifled screams, we'd have to gasp the word Avatar.James Cameron's return to the big screen after a 10 year absence is reason enough to get excited but if you'd read the script and visited the New Zealand set of his latest opus (which Empire can rather smugly say we have) then you'd know that Avatar is going change the face of cinema. Yes, it's partly due to the cutting edge 3D technology Cameron is using to bring the film to life but moreover this is a return to Cameron at his best. This is the spiritual successor to Aliens, a passion project more than a decade in the making and quite possible the cure for HIV, »
The first official pic from James Cameron's mildly anticipated sci-fi epic Avatar has hit the web. Sadly, it's just a shot of Jc and star Sam Worthington sitting in front of an intriguing but vague computery-looking machine thing. Vital issues thrown up by the pic... 1. James Cameron can point with two fingers at once. Could he be alerting Worthington to some incredible two-headed alien beast or something? 2. Sam Worthington has got a tattoo on his right bicep. Looks like some kind of spiky, Celtic-type design. Or could it be part of...
This is a momentous occasion! The first official photo released by Fox for James Cameron's Avatar has finally hit the web! Unfortunately it's not exactly what you're expecting - it's a behind-the-scenes photo featuring Cameron and his star, Sam Worthington. I know, I know, I want to see an actual photo from it, too, but we've still got to wait for that. This comes from a feature in the La Times talking about the overwhelming buzz surrounding Avatar. "The only question (and fear) is what is to become of the cinema geeks overwhelmed by the images that Cameron and his effects crew are putting in front of them." Below you will see the first officially released photo from Avatar. We cannot confirm or deny that the paneling behind Cameron and Worthington is actually a piece of the set or not. We're going to guess that it is, as it »

Ok, so it's not at all what people want to see out of James Cameron's Avatar, but it's still progress. The first official promotional shot has been released and it made its way over to The Los Angeles Times (and was funneled to us via MarketSaw). It's Cameron and star Sam Worthington on the set in New Zealand.
That looks like some sort of craft they're in. Since this doesn't take place in a submarine, I'm going to go with space craft. Now that it's out there, I wonder how long we'll have to wait to get the real goods, shots of some of that 3-D performance capture wizard voodoo that Cameron's spent years developing.
To that end, The Times has an interesting caption that goes along with the photo:
"The buzz surrounding James Cameron's big-budget return to science fiction has been nothing short of awe-inspiring. The film, »

I'm not sure it was well worth the wait for a behind-the-scenes photo like the one above, but I will admit it's very nice to see an actual image from James Cameron's Avatar that didn't leak online with a ton of "Is it real or is it fake?" baggage towing behind. The La Times have debuted the first official image from the Titanic director's much-anticipated sci-fi epic, due in theaters on December 18, 2009, and it shows director James Cameron pointing at something while star Sam Worthington (wearing a backpack of some sorts, as well as something on his wrists) looks on. We're not entirely sure what set they're on, but it looks like the inside of a ship.
This digital 3-D flick (which is a mix of CGI and live action shot on special cameras developed by Cameron) tells of a paraplegic ex-marine war veteran (Worthington) who's sent to establish »

If you have been following the progress of James Cameron’s upcoming movie Avatar, then you will know how huge this small image below actually is. Since James Cameron started filming this thing we haven’t seen anything, apart from long distance shots from the set. No cast images. No posters. Nothing. The image below is the [...] »
It's been I-can't-even-remember-exactly-how-long many years that James Cameron has been promising that his science-fiction flick "Avatar" would blow our minds and forever alter the way we look at cinema. Now, all that has paid off as the La Times reveals, that "Avatar" contains... James Cameron pointing at things.Sure, the image is pretty underwhelming. Cameron points off-frame, showing something to his lead, Sam Worthington. Worthington plays Jake Sully, a disabled military officer who becomes involved with a super-high-tech mission to communicate with an alien civilization by controlling an alien avatar and existing on this new world as one of these creatures.Other than that, there's not a lot there. The background looks a lot like a C-130 plane, a troop-carrier but also seems to have a slightly more futuristic setup. Who knows if the »
According to IESB.net, James Cameron may be interested in directing the remake of Forbidden Planet. Apparently, Cameron's sparked a new interest since Warner Bros. decided to resurrect the project after it fell to pieces a while back. Cameron had shown interest in this just after his "Titanic" box office success. This has not been confirmed by the studio so should not be taken seriously until such a time.The J. Michael Straczynski written script is a this remake of the 1956 classic sci-fi flick helmed by Fred M. Wilcox. Cameron's currently working on his 3D masterpiece "Avatar" which is helming and writing. The film stars Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, Zoe Saldana and Giovanni Ribisi. »
Two new photos from Terminator Salvation have been released online. The first one is our first real look at one of the new Terminators in the film - the Hydrobot (pictured below in concept art which hit the web last month). John Connor (Christian Bale) appears to be inspecting the head of an incapacitated version of the Terminator model. The second photo shows someone, possibly Connor or Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) walking through the baron landscape of a post Judgement Day desert earth. Thansk to /Film reader Christopher M for sending these new photos along.

Hollywood loves a mulligan. When it comes to a possible franchise, this is called a "reboot." It worked for Batman Begins and The Incredible Hulk, not so much for The Punisher: War Zone, and now it looks like Judge Dredd and The Phantom are going to give it a try.
According to the 2000 Ad Forums, they and DNA Films, Danny Boyle's company, announced that a new Judge Dredd is going into production in 2009. No word on whether this will be a true reboot or a sequel recast with a new star, but it's doubtful much will be kept from the Sylvester Stallone 1995 original, considering its lack of success. No, not even Rob Schneider.
The Phantom originally graced movie screens in 1996, with Billy Zane playing the first masked comic superhero. Not returning to The Phantom: Legacy, it will be a true reboot, focusing on what it means to be The »

Next May, Terminator Salvation will hit theaters, and I'm both excited and confident about its chances. Casting Christian Bale was huge, and as we've said anytime there's something new to scrutinize from the production, McG does not appear to be in over his head in terms of the depth of the story of the breadth of the visual effects, both of which are critical to the film succeeding.
If you're a huge fan of the series and you like movie collectibles, this assortment from DC Comics might be up your alley. The new bust statues go on sale May 6th, and each one stands about five or six inches tall. I would suspect we'll get three or four more of these between now and May.

Australia loves The Phantom, so when news broke over the weekend that the comic strip legend was returning to the silver screen, the local media began covering it in earnest.
Tim Boyle told the Courier Mail that he would love to direct The Phantom Legacy which he is writing. The writer/director most recently saw his The Plex released internationally. He has worked with far smaller budgets than the $87 million producer Bruce Sherlock estimated the film will require.
Boyle says he’s up to the challenge and envisions Sam Worthington as ideal for the Ghost Who Walks. Worthington will next be seen in Terminator Salvation next May. Worthington also appeared in Boyle’s Fink so they are familiar with one another.
The writer has moved to Los Angeles for three months to work with Sherlock on locking down pre-production details from distribution to casting. A director choice is expected in January. »

I was skeptical about the casting of Anton Yelchin as Kyle Reese in McG's Terminator Salvation. The kid's a good actor, but physically seemed kind of wispy for the tenacious futuristic soldier and unwitting father to mankind's savior. These new merchandising pics of character busts help change that impression -- he actually looks fairly badass in this outfit, and hopefully that also translates on screen (and with legs). Also on display in truncated statuette form is a bulky T600 cyborg, Sam Worthington in a Neo coat, and woman warrior Moon Bloodgood. »

Little-known Australian actor Sam Worthington is the hot favourite to land the coveted role of the Phantom in the forthcoming comic book movie adaptation - after winning a vote of confidence from the film's screen writer.
Boyle worked with Worthington on low budget action movie Fink and is keen for the pair to reunite.
According to Moviehole.net, the two have yet to discuss the role - and Boyle has yet to learn from studio chiefs if he will also be allowed to direct the movie.
