The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'

7 hours ago | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)

And so the essential twist that led to »

The 'Rosemary's Baby' Mini-Series Has A Trailer

15 April 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

First Rosemary announced her due date(s), May 11th and 15th. Now we have the full trailer for the 4 hour mini-series update of Roman Polanski's 1968 classic.  Check out the trailer below.

NBC's Rosemary's Baby stars Zoe Saldana (Star Trek, Avatar) as Rosemary and Patrick J. Adams (Suits) as her husband, Guy. The pair are running from a painful past in New York and accept an apartment in an exclusive building in Paris. But if things seem too good to be true, they probably are. Their neighbors, the Castevets, seem warm and friendly, but Rosemary starts to believe the worst when Margeaux's holistic treatments are making her health worse and research reveals that Roman - and the building - have a dark and sinister past.

Watch: Zoe Saldana Wants to Know Who Chose Her to be the Mother of 'Rosemary's Baby' in First Full Trailer

15 April 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

While there are a lot of terrifying moments in the new trailer for NBC's upcoming miniseries adaptation of "Rosemary's Baby," perhaps the most unnerving is still Zoe Saldana's pixie cut. I jest (slightly), but the new minute-long spot for the two-part special event airing during sweeps week does give us a good look at the "Star Trek" and "Avatar" star's homage to Mia Farrow's do in the film version. Read More: 'Rosemary's Baby' Miniseries with Zoe Saldana Gets Due Date on NBC That being said, NBC has stated their four-hour miniseries is based on Ira Levin's best-selling novella and not Roman Polanski's 1968 film. The end of the scream-filled trailer below finds Jason Isaacs (who can dial up the creepy vibes like no other) telling Saldana she was chosen to be the baby's mother. She counters with, "By who?" and Isaacs gives a telling head tilt both chilling and amusing. »

‘Rosemary’s Baby’ Miniseries Trailer: Nothing Comes Without a Price

14 April 2014 9:06 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

A relative unknown just ten years ago, science fiction star Zoe Saldana has her hands full these days. She’s set to begin filming three back-to-back sequels for James Cameron’s Avatar this fall, while another Star Trek film is in the works for possibly 2016 and her next film, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, will release later this year.

However, first she’ll make her way to the small screen this summer starring in a television adaptation of Ira Levin’s 1967 novel Rosemary’s Baby for NBC. The book was famously made into an Oscar-nominated film by Roman Polanski and follows a young married couple who moves into a creepy old apartment building in New York City, only to then discover their unborn child is fathered by the devil himself.

The first trailer for the 4-hour miniseries takes the story in a ...

He has to be happy to know that one of James Cameron's guilty pleasures is none other than...Resident Evil.

Last Lap: How’s Bethenny Frankel Looking Back On Her Real Housewives Experience?

14 April 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | TheFabLife - Movies | See recent TheFabLife - Movies news »

Shailene Woodley talks about being a naked lady on Big Morning Buzz Live, Christina Hendricks may not be a mom anytime soon, and the next three Avatar films could have interesting shooting schedules.

We probably won’t see Bethenny Frankel back on the Real Housewives Of New York anytime soon. The former reality star has likened her experience to the Vietnam War, though we’re certain the conflict in east Asia was much more gruesome. [The Hollywood Gossip] Where does Shailene Woodley grab new clothes? At the 2014 MTV Movie Awards, the actress told Big Morning Buzz Live she and her pals have “naked lady parties,” where they rummage one friend’s closet and strip down to try on clothes. Hmm, is that why she looked so amazing during last night’s show? Christina Hendricks would probably have the cutest kids around, but the Mad Men star says she has no plans to have children. »

5 Daily Tech Stories that Filmmakers Must Read: Cameron, Contact Lens Camera, and CGI

14 April 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

1. Filmmakers Render Realistic CGI On the Fly: A new short film teaser demonstrates a new way to do real time motion capture. Using a system complete with custom software, Kevin Margo crafted "Construct," which presented a new level of digital character development and removed hours of post-production time from the process. With less time, more money was spent -- but the results are potentially pivotal for future game and filmmakers. 2. James Cameron Talks Oculus Rift: The prolific, boundary-pushing director recently expressed interest in the budding technology of Oculus Rift. Cameron's film, "Avatar," was a technological feat of modern filmmaking, let alone the highest grossing film of all time. It's safe to say that his word and his interest have serious weight in the tech world. In a recent Reddit Ama, Cameron said, "I personally would be very interested to find a way to incorporate Vr and a narrative filmmaking experience. »

James Cameron's Reddit Ama: The Director's 10 Best Answers

14 April 2014 1:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

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.

We Saw the Future on the ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Set

14 April 2014 9:02 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

I was fortunate enough to be on the set of Rise of the Planet of the Apes back when it was called Caesar and everyone seemed a little nervous to be following up the disastrous Tim Burton remake. Up until the lights went down at the screening of Rise, I thought it was going to be a slow-burn movie about James Franco’s character dealing with the reality of Alzheimer’s disease through a sci-fi conceit about a drug that made a baby monkey smarter. The only reason I thought that was the thrust of the movie for so long was because we were living in a pre-Caesar performance capture world. There was something about seeing Andy Serkis’ performance as Caesar come entirely from Andy Serkis that I challenge anyone to claim they expected. Gollum is a fantastic technical achievement, yes, but up until his appearance in The Hobbit, after »

HeyUGuys On Set: Witnessing the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

14 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Post-Katrina New Orleans, Louisiana seems like a perfect place to shoot a film in which the human population has been largely irradicated. There are pockets in and around that city where entire towns have become  completely vacant. Nature has taken back control of areas that once hummed with life. It would seem to be the most obvious setting for the sequel to ‘Rise of the Planet of the Apes’. However, we aren’t in one of those desolate places – we are in the heart of the the iconic French Quarter. A few blocks from the world famous Cafe du Monde is the set of Matt ReevesDawn of the Planet of the Apes.’

The Nola financial district is subbing in for the San Francisco Waterfront, some 2,000 miles away. If it weren’t for the camera cranes and a large blue screen above the skyline you wouldn’t have a clue when or where you were. »

James Cameron Says ‘Avatar’ Sequel Scripts Are Nearly Complete

14 April 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Now that five years have passed since moviegoers last took a trip to the ultimate holiday destination of Pandora in James Cameron’s sci-fi epic Avatar, it can be easy to forget that there are three sequels currently in the works, set to be shot back-to-back beginning this fall. It’s lucky that there’s still plenty of planet left to explore.

There aren’t many filmmakers who could wrangle a studio green light for three big-budget sequels so far in advance, but since Avatar remains the highest-grossing movie of all time and the #2 spot is held by another Cameron movie, Twentieth Century Fox is understandably being quite accommodating.

Avatar famously took 14 years from its original conception to its ...

Cameron Talks Avatar, Terminator, Innovation, & More

14 April 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

On Saturday, visionary director James Cameron appeared on Reddit in an Ama chat where he answered all kinds of questions from fans and gave his opinions on various topics. Along the way, he gave an update on the upcoming Avatar sequels, dished on non-Cameron Terminator projects, and spoke a bit about the direction he’d like to see Hollywood go in.

Here are a few highlight’s from Cameron’s Ama:

On Avatar:

“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. There hasn’t been »

James Cameron Talks 'Avatar' Sequels, His Biggest Movie Influence & Who Would Win In A Fight: Alien, T-800 Or Na’vi

14 April 2014 8:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

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. »

Speed Read: Kate Upton Wants Smaller Boobs

14 April 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Source: Getty / Jeff Kravitz Kate Upton says she wishes for smaller boobs "at least twice a day" and wants to just "take them off like they were clip-ons." The MTV Movie Awards happened last night. Here's what you need to know for water cooler chat, from all of the best moments to the list of winners to the most Gif-worthy shenanigans. Honestly, the only thing you really need to know is that Zac Efron got shirtless on stage. Relive that ab-tastic moment here: Meanwhile, Mad Men's seventh and final season also premiered last night, and we have so many questions about Don Draper & Co. Game of Thrones also left us puzzled. No spoilers, but the Purple Wedding is the new Red Wedding on Game of Thrones, and you have to read the cast's reactions. In Harrison Ford's fantastic Reddit Ama, he answered the age-old question of who shot first - Han Solo or Greedo? »

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:
