How It's Possible For Sigourney Weaver To Be In The Avatar Sequels

13 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Ever since Sigourney Weaver announced that she would be back to star in Avatar 2 back in 2010, we have been scratching our heads about the situation. After all, her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, very clearly died towards the end of the film - so how could Weaver be coming back? Finally the actress has clarified her position in the franchise a bit, and has confirmed that she will be in Avatar 2 playing a different character. Weaver is currently on the press tour promoting the upcoming release of Chappie, and it was while she was a guest on the UK's The Jonathan Ross Show that the actress revealed how she will be fitting into Avatar 2. The late night program's titular host asked her if we could expect the upcoming sequel to be set directly after the events of the last movie, and she corrected him by saying, "No. I »

Avatar 2 Will See Sigourney Weaver Play A Brand New Character

2 March 2015 8:34 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Last we heard of Avatar 2 and its pair of subsequent sequels, director James Cameron had opted to delay the upcoming installments due to a complex script. This is largely due to the fact that all three movies are set to be filmed simultaneously, leaving cast and crew with a lot of plates to keep spinning. However, despite the events of the first Avatar in 2009, one seemingly core member of the original film set to rejoin production is Sigourney Weaver, who may not play Grace Augustine upon her return.

That’s according to the actress herself, who recently appeared on The Jonathan Ross show to talk all-things-Chappie (with a spice of Blomkamp’s mysterious Alien sequel thrown in for good measure, no doubt). And during the course of the interview, Weaver was asked how she will be able to return to the mystical world of Pandora. Put simply, the »

Sigourney Weaver Says She'll Be Playing A New Character In The 'Avatar' Sequels

2 March 2015 6:21 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

"...have you ever heard of nonlinear storytelling? A lot happens on that planet before she shows up, and before Jake shows up to join her," James Cameron said in 2011 about the return of Sigourney Weaver in the "Avatar" sequels even though her character, Grace, died. "She’s there for fifteen years ahead of time. I don’t know, but I wouldn’t jump to conclusions. And I’ve already said way too much about 'Avatar 2 and 3' here and there, but people piece it together like those voice cameos and tell the whole story!" And yet, Cameron couldn't helping saying a few more words: "Okay, here’s the deal. When you have a science-fiction series, a science-fiction franchise, you’re never dead, unless your DNA is expunged from the universe. And then there’s always time travel!" So is Grace dead, alive, or transformed? Well, we'll find out eventually, but »

27 February 2015 8:24 AM, PST | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Even after a horrific tumble down the stairs at the Brit Awards this week, Madonna still knows how to keep the show going. She took to Instagram to tell everyone she was fine after the fall, but the singer recently revealed she was actually really hurt. During a taping of The Jonathan Ross Show in Britain, Madonna shared, "I didn't hurt my butt; I hurt my head. . . . I smacked the back of my head. So, there was a man standing over me with a flashlight until about 3 a.m. making sure that I was still compos mentis." She also mentioned that the incident not only physically bruised her but mentally threw off her performance as well. "It was a horrible nightmare," she said. "Seriously, I rehearse and I rehearse and I rehearse so that when I do the show it's effortless and I create magic, and I did the opposite. »

Noel Gallagher has revealed that he turned down offers for The X Factor and I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here!.

"I've been asked to go into the jungle... and twice for The X Factor," he told The Sun.

"Me? Dance? And who gives a s**t about ballroom dancing?"

Gallagher also recalled being invited for Piers Morgan's Life Stories, before insisting that the only TV he will accept are interviews to promote his upcoming album Chasing Yesterday.

Rebel Wilson To Star In Absolutely Fabulous Movie

20 February 2015 3:57 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Vince Bucci/AP

During tomorrow night’s episode of The Jonathan Ross Show, Jennifer Saunders will give up some more details on her long-planned Absolutely Fabulous movie. As some press – or maybe, just press-release authors – were at the recording last night, we have The Evening Standard’s account to scrape for details ahead of the broadcast.

The big point, I think, is that Rebel Wilson has a role in the film. There’s a long tradition of putting American stars in British pictures to try and help their export chances – cf. Rhodes of Africa, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Cuban Fury – but I’d have thought Ab Fab would have been able to stand on its own two feet. Maybe not.

Saunders reiterated that some of the film would be set on the French Riviera, which again chimes with a long tradition. Sitcoms-turned-movies forever seem to be relocating the action overseas, »

"We had a live radio show at the end of [last] year so I produced a first draft by [then]! I literally vomited it out. On New Year's Eve it came out!"

She added: "There's some stuff I like, some stuff I've cut out. It'll be an ongoing process until it's actually finished."

It was also revealed that actress Rebel Wilson will star and that some of the film will be set in the French Riviera.

Goldie Hawn teases a return to movies: 'It could definitely happen'

14 February 2015 8:08 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Goldie Hawn has said that she would consider making more movies.

The 69-year-old singer and actress has taken a backseat from Hollywood in recent years. Her last major role was in 2002's The Banger Sisters alongside Susan Sarandon and Geoffrey Rush.

In an interview to air on tonight's Jonathan Ross show, she said: "Well yeah, that could definitely happen."

In the same interview, Hawn said that she'll be spending Valentine's Day alone for the first time in 32 years, because her partner Kurt Russell is shooting a movie.

"I'm not with Kurt because he's making a film… so he's up in the mountains and I'm here," she said.

Russell can next be seen in Furious 7, which opens in cinemas on April 3.
