Kate Winslet Joins Avatar Sequels, Reuniting with James Cameron
Kate Winslet has officially joined the cast of Avatar 2, two decades after working with James Cameron on Titanic. Filming for the long awaited four Avatar sequels began in late September, with a reported production budget of over $1 billion dollars, making it the most expensive movie series in history. The first Avatar, released in 2009, is the highest-grossing worldwide release of all time with a whopping $2.7 billion dollars and it looks as if Cameron and the studio are placing their bets that the upcoming sequence will be on par with the first installment.

Deadline reports that Kate Winslet has joined the world of Avatar in a starring role as Ronal. Reuniting with director James Cameron is something that both the actress and director have been wanting to do since they made hugely successful Titanic back in 1997. James Cameron revealed that working with Winslet on Titanic was one of the most rewarding events of his career.

‘Avatar’ Sequels Begin Shooting, Reportedly Costing $1 Billion

It’s been nearly eight years since ‘Avatar‘ was released, but the road up to production on the ‘Avatar‘ sequels has been long and difficult. After years of production delays and an extended pre-production period to develop underwater Motion Capture technology, Director James Cameron‘s multi-film opus has finally entered production. Four concurrent sequels–‘Avatar 2‘, Avatar 3‘, ‘Avatar 4‘, and ‘Avatar 5‘– are currently shooting in Australia.

In addition to the production announcement, Deadline reports that the costs for the production of the four films is estimated to surpass $1 Billion.

Realive – Review

Realive will be in Theaters on September 29th and on VOD and Digital HD on October 3rd

Review by Mark Longden

I expected not to like this. First up – it’s a SyFy movie, the channel that brought us “2 Lava 2 Lantula”, “Bermuda Tentacles” and “Space Twister”, among many many others. Second up – it prominently features a large group of young beautiful people partying and having the sort of perfect lives that adverts are made of. But then it ended up being an extremely profound movie about love, bad timing, loss, what you’d do when you knew exactly how long you had left, and the future. Flipping from a birth in 1982 to a “death” in 2015, moving between moments in a man’s life then showing his “rebirth” in 2084, it’s superbly edited and deeply moving.

Also…James Cameron finally begins shooting Avatar 2 Monday.

Although plot details are being kept under wraps, producer Jon Landau teased what we can expect from the sequels, stating that: “At the heart of any movie are the characters. One of the strengths of great scripts are always the universal and relatable themes… There’s no more relatable theme than family. At the center of each of our four movies will be the Sully family. Each sequel will play as a stand-alone movie. Each movie’s story will come to its own conclusion… However, when looked at as a whole,

James Cameron says he’s in “full-tilt production” on the Avatar sequels

Some eight years after the release of Avatar, which took the global box office by storm on its way to becoming the highest-grossing movie of all time, James Cameron has now revealed to EW that he’s in “full-tilt production” on the four sequels to the sci-fi blockbuster.

“Oh, we’re in production,” states Cameron. “We’re in full-tilt production. We’re in what we call ‘scouting,’ which basically is shooting for me. I’m on the stage all day long during the scouting process, because there are no sets or locations, other than in the virtual world, so I do all my location-scouting with a troop of actors that go through the virtual sets, and give me a sense of the scale and position, lighting, that sort of thing. Then, I’m in rehearsals with my principal cast and I start with them at the end of September.”

‘Game of Thrones’ Finale: Why Killing a Major Character Could Save Season 7 — Or Ruin Season 8

‘Game of Thrones’ Finale: Why Killing a Major Character Could Save Season 7 — Or Ruin Season 8
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “Game of Thrones” Season 7 through Episode 6.]

The best thing and the worst thing that can happen in the “Game of Thrones” finale is one and the same: A major character dies.

From the fan fiction coupling of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Daenarys (Emilia Clarke) to back-to-back dragon battles with no notable (human) casualties, the truncated penultimate season has offered much in the way of elegant spectacle and little in the way of emotional resonance. It’s also been agonizingly predictable. Arya’s (Maisie Williams) opening assassination of House Frey may be the most successful surprise, and even her revelation felt inevitable as soon as the wine came out.
