I am not, in any way according to the Internet, a Leonardo DiCaprio fan. Never mind that I saw him first and was proselytizing about his gift for at least ten years after seeing the double whammy of This Boy's Life and What's Eating Gilbert Grape in 1993. Alas, I have no proof of this fact as I was not writing for the internet at the time. But, it is true that I began to sour on him starting with Gangs of New York (2002) the first obvious sign that he was quite fallible indeed and that maybe he needed to be, you know, directed, rather than coddled by the auteurs he blesses with his unusually foolproof bankability. I may be the only person alive who thinks his relationship with Martin Scorsese, The Departed aside, has not been good for developing his once prodigious talent. But at the risk of angering his devout legion again, »

Today is Titanic Remembrance Day, commemorating the tragic sinking of the Titanic on this day in 1912. To honor the day, we're looking back at the dramatic reenactment of the event: 1997's already-classic Titanic. We've already been feeling nostalgic since Leonardo DiCaprio was such a huge award season fixture, and it's mesmerizing to see these vintage pictures of him and Kate Winslet as Jack and Rose. Get a blast from the past with these sweet shots from the 1997 movie, and I dare you not to swoon over Leo in that tux. View Slideshow › »

As The Amazing Spider-Man 2 starts to spin its way to a cinema near you this week, our Spidey sense is telling us that it is a perfect time to reflect on the previous four films starring the wondrous webhead.
As one of the comic book world’s most enduring and beloved creations, Spider-Man was hotly sought after for a film adaptation for many years, and was stuck in development hell until Titanic director James Cameron took hold of the material around the turn of the century. Even when Cameron dissociated himself with the project, Hollywood bosses knew that Spidey would make a splash on the silver screen – and right they were. The original film trilogy that spanned 2002-7, directed by Sam Raimi, did not disappoint, breaking numerous box office records and even winning an Academy Award. Such was the character’s popularity that just five years later »

James Cameron popped by Reddit on Saturday to participate in an Ama session. While the director was mainly there to promote his Showtime climate change documentary series "Years of Living Dangerously," Cameron also answered a bunch of questions about other projects including those in the past ("Titanic," "Alien," "The Abyss") as well as those in the present and future (the currently in pre-production "Avatar" sequels, the long-gestating "Battle Angel" adaptation).
Here, we've combed through Cameron's numerous replies to highlight some of his best responses. Check them out below, and be sure to check out the entire exchange -- including Cameron's detailed outline of the search plan for missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 -- for even more in-depth answers.

So, James Cameron hit the interwebs for a Reddit Ama over the weekend, and he had a lot to say. We've already highlighted his comments about a proposed "Alien 5" and his thoughts on "Prometheus," but that was just the tip of the iceberg (yes, an obvious "Titanic" reference). Cameron had a lot more to say about no small shortage of topics, so let's just dive right in with the good stuff: As you know, the director has three more "Avatar" movies coming down the pipeline with production slated to begin soon, and ever ambitious, he revealed his plans on how he'll tackle the followups and what the status is and whether or not the weight of expectation is on his shoulders: The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They’re essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. »

James Cameron’s documentary series Years Of Living Dangerously arrives on Us television screens this week, and over the weekend he joined a Reddit Ama session to answer some burning questions from fans. Of course, when it comes to Cameron nobody can resist bringing up cinematic stunner Avatar, which blew away critics and audiences in 2009. With three sequels in the works there’s obviously a lot going into bringing them into production, with Cameron spilling some secrets:
“The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They’re essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks…The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love to get the film down to a length that is affordable.

Fans still ask her to sign copies of the nude picture, said to have been drawn by Cameron.
The 38-year-old actress said: "I don't sign that one. It feels very uncomfortable. Why would you do that? People ask me to sign that one a lot, and actually there's a photo of it as well that someone's lifted from a still. »

Taking a break from what we suspect is the exhaustive work involved in preparing three Avatar sequels for production, James Cameron took part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session over the weekend. Inevitably, the subject of his new Avatar films came up.
Cameron wrote that "The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They're essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks".
Adding that "there hasn't been a problem finding new and wonderful things to include in the movie", Cameron also played down the rumour that Arnold Schwarzenegger was set to appear as a villain in one of his new Avatar films. »
Man, this was a busy week for Ask Me Anything conversations. Hollywood icon Harrison Ford opened up for a (somewhat) candid conversation that we playfully broke down here on CinemaBlend. And legendary blockbuster director James Cameron also took to Reddit to discuss his various projects, past and present. You can skim through the complete conversation here. Cameron weighs in on the three Avatar movies he.s in the process of making (simultaneously, basically). He discusses Titanic and Prometheus. But his comments about the Terminator franchise really caught our eye. Obviously, Cameron launched the Terminator series with Arnold Schwarzenegger back in 1984. Thirty years ago. Let that soak in. The duo made a sequel, but Cameron moved on, even as Hollywood continued to explore his world in assorted sequels. And it turns out, Cameron didn.t care much for what directors like Jonathan Mostow and the auteur McG came up with. When »
Yesterday, James Cameron participated in one of Reddit’s “Ask-Me-Anything” sessions, which provide a great way for fans to ask their favorite actors, directors and celebrities any questions they want. They’re usually quite humorous, and provide great insight into the lives of those tasked with giving the answers. While Cameron admitted to singing in the shower and doing yoga during his Ama, it was the movie-specific answers that are worth looking into.
The biggest thing on Cameron’s plate right now are the three Avatar sequels that he’s planning on shooting simultaneously. After the first film became the highest-grossing movie of all time, it came as no surprise when sequels were announced.
Cameron’s dedication to the property is impressive (and maybe a little bit crazy). It’s no small feat to make all three movies at once, especially considering they are original ideas and not adaptations of pre-existing material (like, »

The 'Titanic' director, in a Reddit Ama session, said that the second, third and fourth films will all go into production simultaneously and currently the movies were all in pre-production and that they should be done with all the three scripts within next six weeks, Deadline reported.
The 59-year-old film maker asserted that there was always pressure on him whether it was a new film or whether it was a sequel, in order to entertain and stun audience and the biggest stress he has now was. »

Director James Cameron just finished his extensive Ama on Reddit, where he went over his entire career and discussed all of his movies, both future and past. In an unusually candid conversation, the man behind two of the world's biggest movie releases, Titanic and Avatar, was definitely asked anything and everything.
To read his comments about the future of the Avatar franchise: clickHere.
Read on for his comments about True Lies 2, Battle Angel, the future of the The Terminator franchise and the Alien franchise, where he discusses his thoughts, feelings and general attitude towards cinema at this point in time.
For years, we've heard that True Lies 2 is happening. These rumors have mostly been kept alive by Arnold Schwarzenegger's co-star Tom Arnold. According to James Cameron, we'll probably never see a sequel.
We abandoned True Lies 2 after 9/11, because we didn't think a comedy about fundamentalist terrorists was so funny anymore. »
Director James Cameron, who was recently called out for never turning his projects in on time by Fox CEO Rupert Murdoch in a comprehensive Fortune interview, participated in a Reddit Ama this morning, giving his Avatar franchise a timetable.
"The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They're essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks. There's always pressure, whether it's a new film or whether it's a sequel, to entertain and amaze an audience. I've felt that pressure my entire career, so there's nothing new there. The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love »
Though filmmakers like Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are widely considered some of the most popular directors of all time, James Cameron has the distinct honor of directing the two highest grossing films ever made in addition to helming films in two other incredibly successful (and ongoing) franchises. Fans had to wait over a decade for the follow-up to Cameron’s mega-hit Titanic, the performance-capture-heavy Avatar, and we’re currently in another waiting stage as we prepare for the long-promised Avatar sequels. Cameron is deep in pre-production on Avatar 2, 3, and 4 right now with production set to get underway on all three films simultaneously later this year, but he recently took some time out of his schedule to participate in a fascinating and characteristically candid Reddit Ama in support of his upcoming Showtime docu-series Years of Living Dangerously. In the lengthy Ama, the director discussed the status of the Avatar sequels, »

James Cameron has directed some of the highest grossing films of all-time like, Titanic and Terminator: Judgement Day, and of course 2009's Avatar. Since Avatar came out Cameron has been plotting a return to Pandora, and not it sounds as though he has scripts for the sequels all set and ready to... well, nearly done. "The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously," Cameron explained in a Reddit Ama. "They're essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks." The first of these three Avatar sequels won't land in theaters until December of 2016. Cameron had sole credit on the first Avatar film, but this time the director/writer collaborated with: Josh Friedman, Rick Jaffa, Amanda Silver and Shane Salerno, in »
When you consider Best Male Performance at the MTV Movie Awards, you'll notice that one of these things is not like the others: 21-year-old Josh Hutcherson from "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," who faces a quartet of this year's top Oscar contenders. That may seem like an uphill battle for the young actor, but in this contest he may actually have the advantage. -Break- MTV Movie Awards: Complete list of nominations Hutcherson competes against Best Supporting Actor-nominee Bradley Cooper ("American Hustle"), Best Actor nominees Chiwetel Ejiofor ("12 Years a Slave") and Leonardo DiCaprio ("The Wolf of Wall Street"), and Best Actor-winner Matthew McConaughey ("Dallas Buyers Club"). Of those, Cooper and DiCaprio have won this category before. DiCaprio prevailed for "Titanic" (1998) and "The Aviator" (2005), and Cooper is the defending champion, having won last year »

Los Angeles, April 8: Hollywood actress Kate Winslet, who will be seen sharing screen with actress Shailene Woodley in the upcoming movie "Divergent", says that her co-star reminds her of her younger days.
"I keep saying to Shai that she does remind me a lot of myself when I was 21. Titanic does feel years away, and it was 16 years ago," Winslet said in a statement.
"When you're carrying a film, you have to have a determination and a focus to be able to pull something off like she is. You really have to absolutely stay with it. I remember feeling as though I had to be the one leading the troops on", she added.
