“I need… to speak… to Caesar!” And by the looks of things, he’s not having any of it.
Get ready for the evolution of the Simian race in the brand new trailer for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes.
A growing nation of genetically evolved apes led by Caesar (Andy Serkis) is threatened by a band of human survivors of the devastating virus unleashed a decade earlier.

“After studying a wide variety subjects at school I narrowed them to Physics, Classics and Sculpture at college, then Architecture to degree level,” states Andy Nicholson. “After graduating I took a job at an Architectural practice in Toronto as I wanted to work in a completely different Architectural environment.” An alternative career path was taken by Nicholson. "Architecture wasn’t for me as a profession so I returned to the UK and volunteered on student films at the National Film and Television School in Beaconsfield. I ended up practically sleeping on the floor there for six months whilst working on a variety of projects. Work on Commercials and Promos came to me through contacts I had made at the school; my career has developed through word of mouth and reputation from there. »

Indie film and Hollywood are still two very separate worlds. One puts out smaller films where the filmmaker’s artistic vision is key; the other is filming three Avatar sequels back-to-back-to-back in an attempt to give James Cameron complete control of the Earth’s economy. Yet a strange overlap exists between these two extremes, and it’s one that’s been growing in recent times. Where does one categorize 12 Years a Slave? Its cast is a staggering list of star actors and its budget was in the eight digit range, yet it released under Fox Searchlight (Fox’s go-to distributor for indie films) and had one of those newfangled limited releases that don’t go to movies trying to bring in copious amounts of dough. Those who inhabit this odd gray area- your Steve McQueens, Terrence Malicks and Alexander Paynes- often become minor celebrities in their own right (many times have we seen the groupies desperate for »

Work is proceeding apace on the Avatar sequels, especially now that James Cameron has hired a team of writers to work with him on the second, third and fourth trips to Pandora. He’s just opened up to the Associated Press (spotted via The Hollywood Reporter) about what we can all expect. There’s nothing particularly revelatory here, but Cameron seems enthused for the future, at least."At first I thought I was going to take it onto other worlds as well, in the same solar system, but it turned out not to be necessary," the director told the Associated Press. "I mean, the Pandora that we have imagined will be a fantasyland that is going to occupy people for decades to come, the way I see it."Yet if you thought it was all going to be diving into the moon’s oceans, it appears Cameron has other ideas. »
Yesterday brought the news that the three Avatar sequels would be filmed back to back in New Zealand, and today, James Cameron shares a little info on what we can expect from the new films. Cameron confirms that the story continues to focus upon Sam Worthington’s character, Jake, as he settles down to his new life on Pandora. “We spread it around quite a bit more as we go forward,” says Cameron. “It’s really the story of his family, the family that he creates on Pandora. His extended family. So think of it as a family saga like The...

It looks like James Cameron is to take a leaf of out Peter Jackson's book, with the acclaimed filmmaker revealing during a press conference that he plans to shoot his three planned Avatar sequels in New Zealand, with Fox co-president of worldwide theatrical marketing Paul Hanneman stating that the country "offers unparalleled support to films of this scale." Cameron went on to reiterate his plans to release Avatar 2 in December 2016, Avatar 3 in December 2017 and Avatar 4 in December 2018, as well as revealing that work on the sequels is already underway with Jackson's effects company Weta.
"It’s going to be a lot of new imagery and a lot of new environments and creatures across Pandora," states Cameron. "We’re blowing it out all over the place. At first I thought I was going to take it onto other worlds as well, in the same solar system, but »

Wellington, New Zealand (AP) — James Cameron says his vision for his three "Avatar" sequels is to create a family epic in the mold of "The Godfather" that will introduce viewers to new cultures and go underwater on his fictional moon Pandora. The director announced Monday he will be filming the sequels in New Zealand, where he shot the triple Academy Award-winning original. In an interview with The Associated Press, Cameron also talked about life on a New Zealand farm, where he's growing walnuts and allowing his children to roam. Cameron, 59, said he plans to release the first sequel in »

Four years ago, James Cameron gave us Avatar. The sci-fi adventure became the highest-grossing film of all time, earning a staggering $2.8 billion worldwide. Since then, talks of a sequel eventually became two sequels and then, finally, a whole new trilogy of films. In a recent interview, Cameron opened up about his plans for the forthcoming films.
For one thing, don’t expect them any time soon. The first sequel is scheduled to release seven years after the first, in 2016. Also, don’t expect Cameron and his team to rest on their laurels. Despite pioneering new filmmaking technologies with the first film- something he’s done throughout his storied career- he says he’s currently got a team of experts working on brand new software for the sequels. One of the biggest technological hurdles they’re preparing to leap over is good, old-fashioned H2O. After explaining that it is extremely »

20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment will produce the next three movies in the science fiction "Avatar" series in New Zealand, spending $413 million on live action and visual effects, over 9 months.
This agreement comes after the New Zealand government hiked film industry tax rebates to up to 25 percent from the current 15 percent. Cameron didn’t disclose an exact budget although he says he expects economies of scale will help the three movies together cost less than $1 billion, shot at the same time, with a 2016 release target for the first sequel.
"The Avatar sequels will provide hundreds of jobs and thousands of hours of work directly in the screen sector as well as jobs right across the economy," said Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce.

With writer/director James Cameron taking so long to perfect the pre-production phase of the auteur’s long-gestating Avatar sequels, it’s easy to forget that four whole years have passed since Cameron’s sci-fi opus hit theaters and became the highest-grossing film of all time.
Now, after years of pre-production and story work on the future installments, Cameron finally announced that he will shoot the film’s three sequels in New Zealand, beginning with Avatar 2 in October 2014. With Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy leaving hundreds of the country’s visual effects artists and crafts people starved for more work, the New Zealand economy will no doubt rejoice over the news of these three impending productions, which will shoot consecutively over a period of nine months.
Although the sequels will have more Pandora creatures and will further explore the Na’vi cultures, Cameron is not merely interested in visual expansion. »

It was recently announced that the next three Avatar sequels will be shot in New Zealand, and James Cameron will spend around $500 million dollars to make them. In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Cameron discussed a few details from the film such as where it will take place, the underwater element, and the story, which he compares to The Godfather trilogy. As far as where the story is set, he explains,
"It's going to be a lot of new imagery and a lot of new environments and creatures across Pandora. We're blowing it out all over the place. At first I thought I was going to take it onto other worlds as well, in the same solar system, but it turned out not to be necessary.

Director James Cameron is still hard at work prepping for his series of Avatar sequels, and much of what he’s been doing has been shrouded in secrecy, but Cameron has finally revealed a few nuggets about what fans can expect when the three sequels do hit theaters eventually (seriously – it could be another 10 years at this rate). The director spoke to the Associated Press recently, where he opened up about what will be happening on Pandora in his upcoming films. The answer might surprise you. “[The first film] was very Jake-centric. His story seen through his eyes. We spread it around quite a bit more as we go forward. It’s really the story of his family, the family that he creates on Pandora. His extended family. So think of it as a family saga like The...

We already know that we're getting three sequels to follow the 2009 blockbuster giant Avatar from director James Cameron. A press release from 20th Century Fox and Lightstorm Entertainment confirms all of the sequels will shoot in New Zealand, just like Peter Jackson's trilogies for Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. Now Cameron has talked about the new series of films with The Associated Press and revealed some vague details. The most revealing quote descibes how the story will expand around Jake Sully. Cameron says the sequels will "spread it around quite a bit more as we go forward. It's really the story of his family, the family that he creates on Pandora. His extended family. So think of it as a family saga like The Godfather." As for how the sequels will expand the universe in which the films exists, Cameron says: "It's going to be a lot »

Following on from yesterday's confirmation about the New Zealand-based filming of James Cameron's $415 million+ new "Avatar" trilogy, more details about the three sequels have come to light via further reports from that press conference announcement.
Cameron spoke a bit about the story, saying it will explore different Na'vi cultures as well the cultures of other Pandora creatures. The first film was all about Sam Worthington's Jake Sully character and told the story through his eyes. With the new ones though:
"We spread it around quite a bit more as we go forward. It’s really the story of his family, the family that he creates on Pandora. His extended family. So think of it as a family saga like The Godfather."
Plans for the settings of the films have changed. At last report the second film was going to be a mostly underwater-set tale, and subsequent movies would take us off planet. »

How do you follow up the most money-making film of all time? With three sequels, of course. And writer-director-producer James Cameron says he's shaping up the rest of the Avatar films "as a family saga, like The Godfather." Doubting he means mob family, and more just, family. Cameron says the first movie was focused mostly on Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and the new films will be about the Sully clan beyond Jake and his Na'vi wife Neytiri (Zoe Saldana), "We spread it around quite a bit more as we go forward. It's really the story of his family, the family that he creates on Pandora. His extended family."
That includes exploring other Na'vi tribes and other inhabitants of Pandora. In fact, the new movies will really explore the planet, down to the bottom o the oceans and Pandora's moon. Cameron told the AP, ""We're blowing it out all over the place. »

Earlier this year director James Cameron moved to New Zealand to start working on his next three Avatar sequels. He already set up production offices there and in Los Angeles. I just assumed he was going to film the movies there, but apparently it's official now.
Prime Minister John Key made the announcement yesterday, saying that the films would be made in their country and that the studio will spend at least Nz$500 million during their production. It will also lead to thousands of people being employed.
If the three films fulfill certain requirements, they will qualify for a total tax rebate of 25%. Those requirements include,

Following yesterday's news that Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 will all be shot in New Zealand, director James Cameron offered some new details about the follow-ups, comparing them to The Godfather. Here's what he had to say, revealing that while the first Avatar focused on Sam Worthington's Jake, the sequels delve into his extended family on Pandora.
"It was very Jake-centric. His story seen through his eyes. We spread it around quite a bit more as we go forward. It's really the story of his family, the family that he creates on Pandora. His extended family. So think of it as a family saga like The Godfather."
The director also reveals that he originally wanted to explore other worlds in Pandora's solar system, but now he just plans to show fans more of Pandora itself.
"It's going to be a lot of new imagery and a lot »
Last night, we reported that James Cameron would shoot all three Avatar sequels over the course of nine months in New Zealand. Today, he's provided some new information about the plot for the upcoming trilogy. Story details have been scarce, especially since the sequels were expanded to three movies as opposed to just two. When it was just Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, the sequels were reportedly about wrapping up the relationship between Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldana). While that may still be part of the plan even with another film in the mix, Cameron has revealed some lofty aspirations for how he plans to explore Pandora and expand Jake's story. Hit the jump for more. Filming is expected to begin in October 2014. The Avatar sequels will come out at the pace of one film every December starting in December 2016.
