James Cameron Just Said the Most Disgusting Thing About His Upcoming Avatar Sequels

26 November 2014 5:59 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Get excited, people. And maybe grab a tarp. Because when the sequels to the 2009 blockbuster Avatar hit theaters, "You will s--t yourself with your mouth wide open." Or so promised director-producer-Na'vi creator James Cameron, who used that choice turn of phrase while speaking to Empire about the hotly anticipated sequels. Oh, and he also said they'll be "bitchin'," but that seems kind of beside the point now. The Oscar winner also talked about the frames-per-second rate, which surely is part of the reason why so much s--tting will be taking place... "My thinking at the time [when he announced the sequels] was that 60 [Fps] might be a better segue to the video »

James Cameron says Avatar sequels are "bitchin'": 'You'll s**t yourself'

26 November 2014 4:22 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Cameron has spoken out about his forthcoming Avatar sequels.

Sigourney Weaver will play a new character in the upcoming movies, returning alongside original cast members Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang and Zoe Saldana.

Will Avatar sequels use new high frame rate 4K 3D system?

Speaking to Empire, Cameron said: "I can tell you one thing about them. They're gonna be bitchin'.

"You will s**t yourself with your mouth wide open."

Avatar 2 will be released in December 2016.

Cameron recently won a lawsuit against an artist who claimed that Avatar stole from his paintings.

The director has also dismissed the potential of virtual reality technology, insisting that there is no place for it beyond games.

James Cameron offers an update on the Avatar sequels

26 November 2014 2:26 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Cameron has spent the past few years hammering away at development on the upcoming trio of sequels to his 2009 mega-blockbuster Avatar, and with the films gearing up to go into back-to-back production the director has provided a brief update during a chat with Empire.

Cameron has been working on the screenplays for Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 with several writers, including Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Shane Salerno (Savages), and Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes), and he went on to discuss the writing process:

“I think we met for seven months and we whiteboarded out every scene in every film together,” Cameron explains, “and I didn’t assign each writer which film they were going to work on until the last day. I knew if I assigned them their scripts ahead of time, they’d tune out every »

James Cameron Delivers the Greatest Quote Ever Regarding His 'Avatar' Sequels

26 November 2014 2:23 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Filmmaker James Cameron is currently hidden away in New Zealand where he’s hard at work on the scripts for his upcoming Avatar sequels. Yet, even there – in isolation on a landmass far away -- Empire magazine managed to track him down. When they found him, he offered up what may be the greatest quote about an upcoming movie in the history of cinema. Cameron’s been very guarded about the plots of his new films. All we really know is that he’s got a team of writers who spent the better part of seven months together storyboarding every scene for all of the upcoming features. Cameron wouldn’t even tell them who would be writing which sequel until the very last day of the epic brainstorming session – that way, everyone was attuned to...

James Cameron Offers New Details on 'Avatar' Sequels

26 November 2014 1:59 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

New Zealand is best known for been the place where Peter Jackson’s Middle-Earth saga takes place but also, it houses other projects like the upcoming sequels of James Cameron’s massive hit, Avatar. Speaking exclusively to Empire Magazine, Cameron offered some details about the state of the three sequels he is creating and he is very enthusiastic about them.

Here’s what he had to say: 

“I can tell you one thing about them, they’re gonna be bitchin. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.”

Cameron also talked about why he chose to film the sequels at a 48 per second frame rate instead of 60 as it has been rumored before. He said about this:

James Cameron on ‘Avatar’ Sequels: ‘You Will S— Yourself’

26 November 2014 12:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Just in case audiences weren’t sufficiently excited for the three planned sequels to James Cameron’s 2009 epic “Avatar,” or if they had perhaps forgotten how utterly the first film blew their minds, Cameron promised that the new films will indeed be “bitchin’.”

“I can tell you one thing about them,” Cameron told Empire Magazine. “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will s— yourself with your mouth wide open.”

20th Century Fox’s first “Avatar” sequel is due in theaters December 2016, with successive films expected to bow in December 2017 and 2018, respectively.

Original cast members Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver will all return for the sequels.

James Cameron Says ‘Avatar’ Sequels Will Make You ‘S**t Yourself;’ Plus Frame Rate Update

26 November 2014 11:42 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

James Cameron has never been one to set the bar low. When his last two films were released, each was most expensive movies ever made and became the highest grossing films ever. Avatar remains on the top of the list by a wide margin, followed up by the other recent Cameron film, Titanic. But that’s […]

James Cameron Updates on 'Avatar' Sequels and Shooting in 48 Fps

26 November 2014 11:29 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

James Cameron is currently working on the scripts for his Avatar sequels, Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 in New Zealand, with production scheduled to begin sometime in the near future. Very little is known about the story for these follow-ups, except that fans will be taken back to the magical land of Pandora. During a new interview with Empire, James Cameron doesn't offer any story specifics, but revealed that they will be "bitchin."

"I can tell you one thing about them. They're gonna be bitchin'. You will s--t yourself with your mouth wide open."

The filmmaker did clarify one technical aspect of his sequels. Despite rumors that he planned on shooting at 60 frames per second and, most recently, at 120 Fps, James Cameron said that he has settled on shooting at 48 Fps, like Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy.

James Cameron Says Avatar Sequels Will Be Shot At 48 Frames-Per-Second

26 November 2014 10:22 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  24 frames-per-second has been the gold standard for films, but in 2012 director Peter Jackson tried to push the envelope by filming/releasing The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at 48 frames-per-second. Some people marveled at the visual clarity that the higher frame rate offered. Others scoffed at it for ruining the illusion of the fantasy elements to the sets.  I'm sure most of the negative comments come from the fact that viewers just aren't used to format. There has to be an adjustment period. Funny enough, some people would like to push frames rates even higher, such as 60 or even a 120 frames-per-second. It has been rumored that James Cameron ("True Lies") would film his upcoming Avatar sequels at 60 frames-per-second or more, but he tells Empire that he has changed his mind on that. “My thinking at the time was that 60 [Fps] might be a better segue to the »

James Cameron on Avatar Sequels - "They’re gonna be bitchin’"

26 November 2014 9:19 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, director James Cameron discussed his upcoming Avatar sequels. He started off by hilariously describing what will happen to us when we see these movies:

“I can tell you one thing about them. They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.”

I thought that last part of the comment was ridiculously amazing. I hope that's a line of dialogue in one of the movies. The director also spoke about other aspects of the film, such as the frame rate, and planning the story out with his writing team. There were early rumors of Cameron shooting the movies in 60fps, but Cameron ended up going with 48fps, which is what Peter Jackson shot his Hobbit movies in. 

“My thinking at the time was that 60 [Fps] might be a better segue to the video market. I’ll be plugging into a »

James Cameron Says 'Avatar' Sequels Will Make You "Sh*t Yourself With Your Mouth Wide Open”

26 November 2014 9:14 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

There are a few things you can probably expect from James Cameron's brewing trifecta of "Avatar" sequels. More Sam Worthington, a return to Pandora, and more eye-popping visual effects. But just how dazzling will his movies be? Well, Cameron is never one to mince words. “I can tell you one thing about them, they’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open,” he told Empire. Indeed, the filmmaker is always eager to push the latest new fangled technology to try and wow moviegoers, and he's not backing away from the frame-rate debate, promising the next films will double the standard 24fps.  "My thinking at the time was that 60 [Fps] might be a better segue to the video market,” he said of earlier attempts to increase frame rate. “I’ll be plugging into a system that’s a little more mature, so it makes sense for »

James Cameron Says 'Avatar' Sequels Will Make You 'Sh*t Yourself'

26 November 2014 8:53 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

With all the hype surrounding Star Wars: The Force Awakens lately, plus all of the films coming from Marvel Studios and also Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Entertainment, it's easy to forget that James Cameron is working on three sequels to his 2009 blockbuster Avatar. Thankfully, Empire caught up with the filmmaker to find out how the back-to-back sequels are coming along. Production will begin soon with the first film scheduled to arrive late in 2016, and Cameron couldn't reveal much but did say, "I can tell you one thing about them. They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.” Yep, that's a real quote from an Oscar-winning filmmaker and not a comment from YouTube. And while he's certainly serious about hyping up the movies, he did start speaking a little more eloquently about what he has in store. For example, Cameron is no longer »

James Cameron Claims Avatar Sequels Are “Gonna Be Bitchin'”

26 November 2014 8:31 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If we were asked to describe the upcoming Avatar sequels using one word and one world only, we’d find it quite difficult. Ambitious? Derivative? World-building? Well, maybe we’re cheating with the latter, but such a question doesn’t trouble director James Cameron who, when asked the story behind the next chapters in the sci-fi franchise, described them as “bitchin.'” No, really.

Speaking to Empire, the esteemed director surmised the sequels in wonderful fashion:

“I can tell you one thing about them,” Cameron laughs when Empire nonchalantly enquiries about storylines. “They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.”

It’s a bold claim, no doubt. But given that the original film pulled in a staggering $2.8 billion, Cameron has reason to be confident. Further in the interview, the filmmaker also clarified the format in which the movies will be shot, after previous reports suggested that Avatar 2, »

James Cameron Believes the 'Avatar' Sequels Will Serve as a Cinematic Laxative

26 November 2014 8:27 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

James Cameron is still working on three Avatar sequels and he's apparently giving each one an extra dose of fiber and may be able to take advantage of an obvious marketing tie-in with Activia after this recent quote. Speaking with Empire Cameron dropped this little nugget: "I can tell you one thing about them. They're gonna be bitchin'. You will sh*t yourself with your mouth wide open." Yikes, the "mouth wide open" part adds a little extra to that visual don'tcha thinkc The outlet also asked him about the frame rate he's going for with the Avatar shoot and while the experiment with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and 48 frames per second didn't exactly pay off, Cameron is sticking with it. "My thinking at the time was that 60 Fps might be a better segue to the video market," he said. "I'll be plugging into a system that's a little more mature, »

James Cameron Says the Avatar Sequels Will Be “Bitchin”; Reveals Peter Jackson Suggested Famous Line from the First Film

26 November 2014 7:48 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

James Cameron is hard at work developing his Avatar sequels, and the only way they can be described is by bringing back long-dead slang terms.  With a December 2016 release date officially set for Avatar 2, Cameron is currently getting ready to begin production on the three sequels back-to-back-to-back, and when asked by Empire about the storylines, Cameron, laughing, said he could reveal one thing: “They’re gonna be bitchin.’  You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.”  Dear Fox, please print this on the poster.  Your marketing job will be half over! The filmmaker certainly took his time in crafting the follow-ups to the highest grossing film of all time, and when it came to writing the screenplays he broke the stories with a team of writers and then assigned each of them one specific film.  In the recent edition of Empire, Cameron elaborates a bit on this writing »

"Avatar 2" To Cause A Bowel Movement?

26 November 2014 6:51 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

After a lengthy pre-production period of several years, actual shooting on the three sequels to James Cameron's "Avatar" is almost ready to begin. Cameron himself seems pumped for filming on the back-to-back production, telling Empire this week that audiences are going to be in shock from the films:

"I can tell you one thing about them. They're gonna be bitchin'. You will s--t yourself with your mouth wide open."

One surprising bit of news, Cameron has pulled back on plans to shoot the new films at 60 frames-per-second and is instead sticking to the 48 frames-per-second process which Peter Jackson used whilst filming "The Hobbit" trilogy.

"My thinking at the time was that 60 [Fps] might be a better segue to the video market. I'll be plugging into a system that's a little more mature, so it makes sense for me to do 48 frames at this point."

James Cameron Uses Outdated Slang to Hype 'Avatar' Sequels

26 November 2014 3:42 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's pretty apparent that James Cameron is a certifiable madman. When he's not launching risky, technologically unproven science fiction epics, he's traveling down to the bottom of the ocean in a one-man submarine or something equally insane and death defying. And in talking about his sequels to "Avatar," Cameron has decided to try something even loonier: bring back outdated slang in an attempt to get people excited for a trio of sequels that we're not sure anybody is actually all that excited about.

Speaking with Empire Magazine (via our good friends at Collider), Cameron teased that he could only reveal one thing about the new movies (the first of which opens in December of 2017): "They're gonna be bitchin'. You will sh*t yourself with your mouth wide open." It can only be assumed that he said that after doing a sweet kick flip off of his skateboard, while wearing a backwards baseball cap. »

'Cake' Trailer: Jennifer Aniston Goes Anti-Glam Just in Time for Oscar Season

25 November 2014 4:39 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Jennifer Aniston famously de-glammed herself for the role of a disheveled pill-popper suffering from post-traumatic stress in the darkly comic "Cake," and now viewers can get a look at the final result in the film's first trailer. The film's new trailer highlights Aniston's performance, which has been acclaimed on the fest circuit, despite mixed reviews for the film itself.  With an Oscar-qualifying run scheduled for next month, Aniston is clearly aiming for awards buzz here, and it helps that she's surrounded by a sterling cast loaded with Oscar nominees like Adriana Barraza, Felicity Huffman, William H. Macy, and Anna Kendrick, with Sam Worthington ("Avatar") also thrown in for good measure. Daniel Barnz ("Won't Back Down") directed. Watch the trailer here: More ABC Us news | ABC World News "Cake" will open in New York on January 13, before expanding wider. Do you think Jennifer Aniston has a shot at an Oscar nomination? »
