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 »

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. »

'Deepsea Challenge 3D': The Story Behind James Cameron’s Dive to the Mariana Trench

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

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. »

Justin Timberlake, Ryan Gosling and More Celebs Who Have Been Friends Since They Were Kids

3 August 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

If you're a Hollywood star, your childhood friends usually have a limited number of roles available to play. They can be a loyal sidekick, your crew's comical mascot, or maybe the personal assistant who will eventually take you down in a bloodless celebrity coup. But for a lucky few stars, the people they grew up with became celebrities themselves, with their own fans, their own love interests and their own trending topics. It must be a welcome surprise. After all, it's lonely at the top, but it's a little less lonely when your childhood friends are there, too. In honor »

Film Review: ‘Deepsea Challenge’

1 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Let no one suggest that James Cameron doesn’t put his mouth — and the rest of his body — where his money is. When he isn’t busy tugging at the boundaries of the modern Hollywood blockbuster, the director and National Geographic “explorer-in-residence” lives a lifestyle worthy of one of his own protagonists, whether scouring the real-life wreckage of the Titanic or plummeting into the depths of the Mariana Trench. That last expedition (conducted in 2012) is scrupulously documented by Cameron’s longtime visual effects supervisor John Bruno and co-directors Andrew Wight and Ray Quint in the 3D “Deepsea Challenge,” which follows Cameron as he attempts to re-create the historic 1960 trench dive by Swiss oceanographer Jacques Piccard and U.S. Navy Lt. Don Walsh. While watching Cameron get in touch with his inner Jacques Cousteau won’t be to everyone’s taste, fans of the director and oceanography gearheads should swoon to the immersive, »

‘Deepsea Challenge 3D’ Review: James Cameron's Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea

1 August 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Adjust your documentary-watching gauge closer to “Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom” (or, for the kids, Animal Planet) and further away from “Werner Herzog discovers one of the last unspoiled places left on earth,” and you'll have a perfectly enjoyable time watching “Deepsea Challenge 3D,” the kind of no-nonsense, by-the-numbers doc that captures a rather extraordinary feat: film director James Cameron and his team submerging a vessel (sole passenger: the director of “Titanic”) miles downward into the Mariana Trench. It's the kind of film that should be screened in schools as a reminder that math and science are important, and that. »

Watch ‘Titanic’ Bad Guy Get All Science-y and Stuff in ‘Mining for Ruby’ – Oh, Mischa Barton Co-Stars Too (Exclusive Video)

31 July 2014 4:43 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

It's been nearly 17 years since Billy Zane let Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet go down with the ship in “Titanic,” but the actor is still playing shady characters. In TheWrap's exclusive clip from “Mining for Ruby,” he cautions Antoinette Kalaj (“Don Jon”) against doing the right thing. Director Zoe Quist's (“Raw Cut”) picturesque Alaskan indie centers around a scientist named Ruby (Kalaj) who falls for a widower played by Daniel Ponickly (“Mona Lisa Smile.”) After uncovering a looming environmental disaster that promises to pit her against a shady industry — and potentially shutdown the town she's grown to love — Ruby is. »

What We Learned From Comic-Con: Movies Were an Afterthought

28 July 2014 2:42 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Gale Anne Hurd rose to the pinnacle of Hollywood by producing some of the biggest and brashest films in history, none more so than “The Terminator,” directed by her then-husband James Cameron. Yet when thinking about the current state of the movie business, Hurd referenced another one of Cameron's movies – “Titanic.” “They can see the iceberg coming,” Hurd told TheWrap at Comic-Con. Hurd is no longer on the ship. She has moved on to television, producing “The Walking Dead,” the highest-rated cable show in America. She will have no involvement in the upcoming reboot of “The Terminator,” nor does she. »

Mindy Newell: EW Does Sdcc

21 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

My geek overdrive continues to overwhelm me. But I’m not the only one.

Less than a week away from this year’s San Diego ComicCon (which opens its doors this Thursday, July 24th, and closes them on Sunday, July 27th) Entertainment Weekly joins the national geek fest that is summertime with a bang-up double-size issue featuring a cover shot of Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Evans as Captain America with Ultron looming behind them. The issue is a stuffed-to-the-gills San Diego Comic Con preview…

And I read every single page. Including the adverts.

Now I know how those fans at the 1976 Sdcc felt when Charles Lippincott (then head of Lucasfilm’s marketing, advertising and publicity department) showed some of the first production slides of Star Wars, and (writer) Roy Thomas and (artist) Howard Chaykin previewed their Marvel Comics adaptation of the film, because the cover story, »
