James Cameron Can Express All His Artistic Observations Through ‘Avatar’ Sequels

18 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

We’re back in a familiar part of a cycle with respect to James Cameron and his films, where, in the long and seemingly fallow period between movies, people tend to question the wisdom of his next move. It happened before Titanic, and before Avatar. We know how both of those films turned out, at least from […]

Into The Storm Review

20 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Steven Quale

Starring: Richard Armitage, Sarah Wayne Callies, Max Deacon, Nathan Kress, Alycia Debnam Carey, Matt Walsh, Arlen Escarpeta

Certificate: 12A

Running Time: 89 minutes

Synopsis: Storm trackers, thrill-seekers, and everyday townspeople document an unprecedented onslaught of tornadoes touching down in the town of Silverton.

Never since the cult classic Twister have the movie studios really dared to throw their money into the turbulent world of tornado thrillers, without sharks. Into The Storm doesn’t mess around with the genre and although struggles to develop interesting dialogue, it ties down a basic narrative for specific purposes. Basically, it’s time for the small American town of Silverton to be ravaged by tornadoes for what will become the biggest storm in history, which comprises of a mammoth 300-mph monster in the grand finale but, I promise you, that’s not a spoiler unless you haven’t seen a trailer.

First Look at Paul Rudd in Ant-man

19 August 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.

From the Press Release

San Francisco, California (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.

Fox’s Jim Gianopulos Leads Studio Through Uncertain Times

19 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Twentieth Century Fox chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos doesn’t have an easy job.

It’s hard enough to pick movies that connect with audiences. Today, studio chiefs like Gianopulos must navigate a rapidly shifting landscape where consumer demands, piracy and the collapse of the DVD market, as well as increasing competition from online diversions and quality cable TV shows, are wreaking havoc on the financial underpinnings of the film business. Media companies like Fox’s parent 21st Century Fox are on a quest to grow bigger in order to compete with digital superpowers like Google and pending mergers between cable and telco giants like Comcast and Time Warner Cable, and At&T and DirecTV. Gianopulos’ uberboss, 21st Century Fox chief Rupert Murdoch, made a surprise $80 billion bid to buy Time Warner that was rejected and he subsequently withdrew. But consolidation, it seems, is coming.

Into the Storm and the changing face of the disaster movie

15 August 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The disaster movie hits the next level a week from now with the release of Into the Storm, a drama that sees a tornado rip through a small American town on the day of high school graduation. Directed by James Cameron protégé Steven Quale, the film introduces the found footage aesthetic to a story of a father (Richard Armitage) desperately trying to save his son (Max Deacon). There are multiple perspectives juggled, too, notably a pair of redneck daredevils getting close to the action in a bid to make a viral video and a professional storm-chasing outfit led by Matt Walsh's documentary maker. Think of it as Twister turned up to 11.

"The journey all these characters go through, I was hoping to do that in a more intimate way to show a disaster as opposed to the wide, epic, sweeping shots that a cinematic movie would traditionally do," Quale tells Digital Spy. »

Happy Birthday 'The Abyss'! Watch 1-Hour Documentary On The Making Of James Cameron's Underwater Thriller

11 August 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Coming between "Aliens" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," James Cameron's "The Abyss" is for better or worse, not as well remembered as either of those films. That said, few films would be, sandwiched inside two game-changing, blockbuster, sci-fi movies. But 25 years ago, on August 9th, Cameron delivered his underwater thriller well before he would make "Titanic," or take a submarine to the Mariana Trench, and while the weekend kept us busy, this making-of documentary might be a good way to kick off your week. Running one hour long, this doc kicks off with a bang, with the director underwater announcing: "I'm James Cameron, and I want to take you into a world of cold and darkness, and unrelenting pressure — the movie business." It then cuts to Cameron sit down interview where he announces that his aspirations: "If I couldn't do when '2001: A Space Odyssey' did for science »

‘James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge 3D’ Sinks at Box Office

10 August 2014 11:50 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

James Cameron may be “King of the World” at the box office, but that plainly doesn't hold true when it comes to documentaries. “James Cameron‘s Deepsea Challenge 3D” opened in 304 theaters to a soggy $147,000 this weekend. That's a puny $485 per-screen average for the chronicle of the mini-sub journey to the ocean's deepest depths by Cameron, the man behind the two highest-grossing movies of all time, “Avatar” and “Titanic.” Also read: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Clobbers ‘Guardians’ With $65 Million Box-Office Opening No one expected the documentary from indie distributor DisruptiveLA to match the numbers those films put up of course, »

King of the World and Harry Potter Try to Conquer Specialty Box Office

7 August 2014 3:39 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

James Cameron and Daniel Radcliffe, two guys who know their way around a blockbuster, are opening more intimate — and very different — movies at the specialty box office this weekend. Cameron is of course the writer and director behind “Titanic” and “Avatar,” the two highest-grossing movies of all time at the worldwide box office. On Friday, “James Cameron‘s Deepsea Challenge 3D” opens in 304 theaters nationwide. Radcliffe, who played the bespectacled young hero in the hugely popular “Harry Potter” movies, opens in the romantic comedy “What If,” which CBS Films will have in 20 theaters in 10 markets.

‘Into the Storm’ Director Steven Quale on Found Footage and Keeping it Real

7 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Steven Quale loves a good disaster film. He whetted his appetite as the second unit director on “Titanic” and “Avatar,” and claimed the director’s chair for 2011’s “Final Destination 5.” Born in Evanston, Ill., the 48-year-old helmer returned to his Midwest roots for “Into the Storm,” a tornado-centric drama spinning into theaters Aug 8.

What’s new in the tornado film genre? 

YouTube changed everything. You can see everything online. For the film, we wanted to keep realism, but stretch it a little bit. I didn’t want lion roars in the tornado sound effects. And I wanted our beastly end tornado to be one mile long.

Sounds big. 

Not big enough. We filmed the movie, and then there were reports of a tornado 2.6 miles wide. So we changed ours to two miles wide. This last decade, there have been some crazy storms.

You opted to shoot this film in Michigan — why? »

'Into the Storm': Film Review

7 August 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Warner Bros., the studio that distributed Twister (1996) and The Perfect Storm (2000), is now releasing Into the Storm, about the biggest tornado of all time. Does a studio once known for its topical, socially conscious dramas now aim to corner the market on meteorological disaster movies? How the mighty have fallen. Directed by Steven Quale, who worked on the James Cameron blockbusters Titanic and Avatar, this movie is a formidable technical achievement. Since the no-name cast won’t draw crowds, everything depends on the eagerness of young audiences to step aboard the roller coaster. Box office prospects are uncertain.

Film Review: ‘Into the Storm’

7 August 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back in ye olde summer of 1996, few could have imagined that we would eventually look back fondly on Jan de Bont’s “Twister” as the kind of movie “they” don’t make like they used to. And yet, a scant two decades later, here comes “Into the Storm” to prime that nostalgic tear. An all-but-official redo of de Bont’s film for the YouTube/Instagram generation, director Steven Quale’s found-footage Frankenstorm extravaganza generates even more racket than its predecessor (especially in theaters equipped with the new Dolby Atmos sound system) and markedly less human interest — up to and including a shameless heart-tugging coda that wraps itself in Old Glory more snugly than a Tea Party sleepover. Ultimately little more than a feature-length demo reel for nine credited VFX companies, this mid-budget New Line Cinema slate filler may earn some quick late-summer coin from undiscriminating teen auds; all others are »

18 Strangest Celebrity Photoshoots

6 August 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Geoff Caddick/Pa Archive/Press Association Images

It’s not easy being a celebrity. Being hounded by the paparazzi, having your every move monitored, and being judged by the eyes of the world is tough. Worst of all though, has to be partaking in some of the most ridiculously humiliating photoshoots ever.

While photoshoot sessions often take place in order to promote a movie, album or product, the results can occasionally be questionable. Worst of all though, is when the celebrities themselves have organised the shoot, be it through a surge of egotism or just a misplaced understanding of ‘art’.

This list takes a look at 20 of the strangest celebrity photoshoots of all time. From bizarre settings to questionable poses, there’s no knowing what was going through the minds of either the photographer or the celebrities themselves in any of these gloriously ridiculous photos.

Spotlight on the Stars: James Cameron

6 August 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of directing’s biggest A-listers of them all. The filmmaker in question? Well, that would be James Cameron, of course. A filmmaker who also does his best to literally change the world, Cameron is pretty special. In many ways, he really is the king of the world, so it’s only appropriate that we take a look at him in this particular article series. In any event, here we go now. Cameron got his start working behind the scenes on low budget exploitation before being given a chance to direct Piranha Part Two: The Spawning. He was fired from that project, but still has a credit. If ever there was an outlier on a resume, it’s that one. From there, he set out to make a true first feature, one that turned out to be none other than The Terminator. »

James Cameron, National Geographic and Disruptive La are releasing on Friday a 3D documentary about Cameron’s record-breaking solo dive to the deepest part of the ocean that took place on March 26, 2012. Deepsea Challenge 3D traces the building of the submersible and the nearly 36,000 foot dive to the Mariana Trench’s Challenger Deep in the western Pacific Ocean—a very personal journey for the Academy Award winning filmmaker and National Georgraphic Explorer-in-Residence that made news around the world.

James Cameron's Deepsea Challenge 3D Is a Feature-Length Humble-Brag

5 August 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Ostensibly a testament to terrestrial beauty and human ingenuity, James Cameron's nature doc Deepsea Challenge 3D feels like a feature-length humble-brag.

The film's main subject isn't supposed to be Cameron himself but rather his record-breaking submarine voyage to the bottom of the Mariana Trench, the deepest recorded spot on Earth. But Deepsea Challenge has too little interest in anything that's not Cameron's personal experience. The film begins with a dramatized account of Cameron's boyhood fantasies of oceanic exploration.

After that, he explains how his filmmaking career has dovetailed with his yen for deep-sea diving, from writing and directing The Abyss in 1989 to using remote-controlled robots to explore the Titanic's wreckage in 20 »

James Cameron goes on another deep dive with 'Deepsea Challenge 3D'

5 August 2014 4:50 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

You would think James Cameron would want to rest. The 59-year old behind the two highest-grossing movies of all time—Avatar and Titanic, in addition to all the technology required to make those films a reality—has earned himself the right to a leisurely retirement. But there’s no rest for his curiosity.

Cameron’s latest endeavor, Deepsea Challenge 3D, is indication that he will never stop exploring. “I’m just a very curious person, I guess,” Cameron said in a recent interview on EW Radio. “It’s what attracts me to science, to engineering. I like to build things and see if they work. »
