James Cameron Wasn't Quite Sold on 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

29 June 2016 10:34 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Back in December, Star Wars: The Force Awakens set the world on fire. Not only was it a follow-up to the much beloved original Star Wars trilogy that ended back in the 1980s, but it was also considered by many to be a worthy successor to it. It successfully captured the flavor and style of that series, all the while pushing the story forward in a new direction.

Audiences responded to this by heading to the theaters in droves, and by the time the film left theaters it had broken $2 billion worldwide, putting it in third place in the overall ranking of box office records. The only other movies that outperformed Star Wars were Titanic and Avatar, and interestingly enough, they are both films from world renowned director James Cameron.

While plenty of filmmakers have given their opinion on the film, James Cameron has largely stayed quiet on the subject. »

James Cameron Slams ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’: It Lacked ‘Visual Imagination’

29 June 2016 9:18 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s safe to say that James Cameron isn’t the biggest fan of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

The “Titanic” director tiptoed around answering a question about what he thought about the sequel before taking a dig at the film.

“Well, George Lucas is a friend of mine,” he prefaced. “I don’t want to say too much about the film because I also have a lot of respect for J.J. Abrams and I want to see where they’re taking it next.”

But the rest of the “Avatar” helmer’s answer hints that he was not impressed.

“I have to say that I felt that George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more of a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before, and it took a few baby steps forward with new characters,” Cameron said. »

James Cameron Disses J.J. Abrams: Star Wars: The Force Awakens Lacked "Visual Imagination"

29 June 2016 7:16 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

James Cameron has dissed fellow director J.J. Abrams. Cameron was asked about Star Wars: The Force Awakens during an interview with YouTuber Keely Stinner. As it turned out, he had recently discussed the latest installment with the series' original director, George Lucas. "I have to say that I felt that George's group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before," he said of J.J. Abrams' blockbuster, which is the third highest-grossing film ever behind his own Avatar and Titanic. "It took a few baby steps forward with new characters. So, for me, the jury is out. I want to see where they go with »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens: James Cameron adds his thoughts

"The jury's out", says James Cameron, on Jj Abrams' Star Wars movie...

There’s just about time for another person to have a view of last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that director Jj Abrams helped steer to over $2bn of business at the global box office. That left the movie only trailing James Cameron’s Avatar and Titanic in the biggest grossing films of all time chart. And now, James Cameron has been chatting about his thoughts on Abrams’ Star Wars movie. Mainly because somebody asked him.

Cameron said that “I don’t want to say too much about the film, because I also have a lot of respect for Jj Abrams”, before adding that “I have to say that I felt that George’s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination. This film was more of a retrenchment to things »

You Will Not Approve of What Billy Zane Had to Say About He and Kate Winslet In Titanic

27 June 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Hold! Up! Here we are still trying to get over Game of Thrones, and now we have to process this too. It is a rough Monday, people.  In the craziest Titanic news you will ever hear, Billy Zane, who famously played Kate Winslet's totally scary fiancé, Cal, had a little something to say about their characters on-screen relationship. Zane was on Today to discuss his latest series, Guilt when he offered up an alternate Titanic ending sure to shock fans everywhere. Believe it or not, Zane defended his character in the 1997 film, hinting at the fact that Rose should have stayed with Cal instead of getting with Leonardo DiCaprio.  First of all, no.

James Cameron’s ‘Xenogenesis’: Watch the Lo-Fi, Futuristic 1978 Short Film That Gave Him His Start

26 June 2016 1:16 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Before he was working with hundred-million-dollar budgets — hell, before he was even making that “Piranha” sequel — James Cameron was an aspiring filmmaker like any other. He first announced himself to the world with 1978’s “Xenogenesis,” a 12-minute short made in 1978. If you’re curious where the king of the world got his start, watch the shoestring sci-fi project below.

Beginning with a series of illustrations set to narrated voiceover, the film bills itself as “man’s ultimate adventure.” William Wisher stars as a passenger aboard a sentient spacecraft looking for a suitable environment to start anew — imagine a shoestring version of the prologue from “Prometheus.” Long before he reaches this new beginning, the spacefarer encounters a rather large robot whose functionality appears to extend well beyond maintenance and upkeep. This results in the »

From Camp Crystal Lake to the Vineyard: An Interview with Adrienne King

21 June 2016 12:33 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Editor’s Note: Our own Scott Drebit recently hosted panels at the sixth annual Calgary Horror Con. At the three-day event, Scott caught up with Adrienne King, who discussed playing the first final girl in the Friday the 13th franchise, her interest in painting, returning to acting, and teaming up with Valley View to create Crystal Lake Wines.]

Hi Adrienne, thanks for sitting down with Daily Dead. I’d like to start off with Friday the 13th. It’s always been my belief that Halloween is unique and an anomaly, and that Friday the 13th really set the tone for the slashers that followed.

Adrienne King: I think so, too. In terms of women not being victims, or a woman being the killer, it hadn’t really been done before. And sometimes I think about if it was accidentally empowering women, or if they just wanted to do something that had a twist. And who would have ever guessed that the killer could have been a woman? A sweet lady, too, Betsy Palmer. No one saw that coming.

My generation really didn’t know Betsy Palmer. But when my parents saw her on the screen, they were like, “Oh my god! Betsy Palmer is the killer!” They »

Leena Yadav’s ‘Parched’ Releases Friday in U.S.

15 June 2016 5:36 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leena Yadav is finally making the film she wants to. The Hindi filmmaker’s “Parched” opens June 17 in select theaters in the Bay Area, L.A., and New York through Wolfe Releasing, which will also release it on home entertainment platforms later this summer after the theatrical run.

Starring Tannishtha Chatterjee, Surveen Chawla, and Radhika Apte the film, with a screenplay by Yadav, revolves around three women in a remote village who break free from century-old traditions that have kept them locked in servitude.

“It started because I wanted to make ‘Sex in the Village.’ Tannishtha, who plays Rani in the film, and I had been planning on doing something together,”  Yadav said. Chatterjee told Yadav about the women she met while on location shooting “Road Movie” and “Jal.” They were curious about her sex life. “I told her, ‘We think we are progressive, but we have so many layers when we talk about sex.’ ”

After writing her script she sent it out to filmmaker friends across the world who responded with their own stories rather than critiques. “That’s when we realized, ‘Let’s make a really good film that we can take across the world.’ ”

But finding funding was close to impossible, she said. “I have no heroes, Tannishtha is not well known, not in India. Right now Radhika is coming up.”

So her husband, cinematographer Aseem Bajaj, said he would be the producer and help get her film made. “And he made the most difficult promise,” she said.

Before “Parched,” Yadav had written and directed 2005’s “Shabd” and 2010’s “Teen Patti” and directed a telepic. But with Bollywood bold-faced name Ajay Devgn offering seed money to the project they were able to find two investors who helped put up some money, while the couple invested everything they had.

The next challenge was to find a village for the location shoot. This turned out to be pretty difficult as village leaders didn’t want the filmmakers there. Yadav said she was told, “Our women will get corrupt looking at you.” Finally they found a village in Rajasthan that was deserted for all but two months of the year. About 60% of the huts were dilapidated, but the production fixed them up so the shoots could proceed.

Although Yadav’s husband is a d.p., they decided to hire Russell Carpenter (“Titanic,” “Ant-Man”) as cinematographer since Bajaj had to work full time as a producer.

“Foreigners come and click much more interesting photos of India,” Yadav said. “I told Russell, ‘I want to celebrate the beauty of these women. I’m not making a dark, depressing film.’ ”

The shoot, which began in January 2014, took a while as they had to stop and start, depending on funding. But Yadav is pleased with the end result. “Parched” played at the Toronto festival last fall and has been on the film festival circuit since. It will open the London Indian Film Festival in October.

Seville Intl. has sold the film in several territories including France, where it sold more than 120,00 tickets, Benelux, Mexico, Russia, and Colombia. The film has not yet opened in India, but she is in talks with distributors and hopes something will work out so it can open in July or August.

“Once in a lifetime I had to do something like this, but it’s very difficult,” Yadav said. “I can only do this again after five or 10 years.”

James Cameron is climbing aboard National Geographic Channel’s expedition documentary “Search for Atlantis,” THR reports.

The two-hour special explores the myth of the lost city and will be made in partnership with Associated Producers and Discovery Canada. “Finding the historical and archeological truth behind the Atlantis myth has always been a fascination of mine,” said Cameron in a statement on Monday, the second day of the Banff World Media Festival. “Our exploration team will investigate several new theories about where the real Atlantis was, who these mysterious people were, and what disaster wiped them from the Earth over three millennia ago.”

Shooting will take place in Sicily, Malta, Crete, Santorini and Sardinia, with underwater filming set for off the coast of Spain. The project marks the latest expedition documentary for Cameron, who previously produced 2014’s “Deepsea Challenge,” about his solo diving expeditions, and 2003’s “Ghosts of the Abyss,” about the building of the Titanic.

“Search for Atlantis” is just one of more than a dozen projects on Cameron’s plate, including four “Avatar” sequels he’s attached to direct, and Guillermo del Toro’s sci-fi adventure “Fantastic Voyage,” which Cameron will produce.

Discovery Canada and National Geographic previously worked with Associated Producers on another Atlantis documentary, the 2011 TV movie “Finding Atlantis.”

'Star Wars Episode VIII': Director Rian Johnson Commemorates "Home Stretch" With Set Photo

8 June 2016 6:46 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Star Wars: The Force Awakens set the world on fire when it hit theaters last December. Over its first weekend, the film secured its place in the box office record books with the most successful domestic opening of any film ever. Its success also carried on in the overseas market, and by the end of its run (which, interestingly enough, only officially finished a couple days ago), it broke $2 billion worldwide, coming in at number three worldwide, behind only James Cameron's Titanic and Avatar.

What's more, the film managed to please a great majority of hardcore Star Wars fans out there, many of whom lost faith in the series during the theatrical run of the prequel trilogy back in the 2000s. Director J.J. Abrams managed to accomplish the impossible, and brought back the spirit of the series that many feared would never get back to its former glory (and yes, »

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' has ended its North American run. Here's how much it made.

7 June 2016 4:11 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

On May 30, Star Wars: The Force Awakens officially completed its run in North American theaters after 168 days. It was very lucrative! Not only did the Jj Abrams-directed sequel finish with a record-breaking $936 million on the continent, it racked up a whopping $2.066 billion worldwide. That's enough for a No. 3 finish on the all-time global box office chart, after Titanic ($2.187 billion) and Avatar ($2.788 billion).  In fairness: both of those James Cameron blockbusters enjoyed subsequent re-releases that added to their respective totals. Subtract the money made during said re-releases, and Titanic is actually in third place with $1.84 billion and Avatar...well, Avatar remains in first with $2.755 billion (it only made $33.2 million in its 2010 reissue).  Then again! Adjusting for inflation, the positions revert back to their original ranking, with Avatar coming in at $3.07 billion in initial release and Titanic coming in at $2.74 billion in initial release -- both far ahead of The Force Awakens' $2.066 billion. »
