The producers of these pictures need to remember what happened in 2010, the first year that the academy expanded the Best Picture race from five to 10 nominees. “The Hurt Locker,” which had lost all three of its Globe races, won six Oscars including the top prize. It also took home Academy Awards for Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Editing and Best Sound Mixing.

At first, The Terminator was all a dream.
James Cameron had exactly one feature film credit to his name when he came up with the idea for The Terminator: Piranha II: The Spawning. While sick with fever, Cameron had a dream about a skeletal metal death machine emerging from a fire, as though it had been covered in human flesh. A cybernetic organism, one might say...
Hollywood counted out James Cameron.
Indeed, casting is now officially underway on Todd McFarlane’s R-rated reboot, which has set up shop at Blumhouse Productions – fitting, really, given it’s been described as a “low-budget” superhero movie with all the horror trappings one would expect from a Blumhouse project.
Story-wise, it’ll mine inspiration from Jaws in that Albert Francis “Al” Simmons will be used sparingly in order to build tension organically, while there’s also been mention of a “big police component” that will, in time, underpin McFarlane’s Spawn movie. And during an exhaustive interview with ComicBook.com, the decorated scribe spoke more about how he envisions Albert Simmons’ next big-screen outing, along with the chances of an uncut version.
I haven’t [thought that far ahead] but I’ll give you my reaction. Those are a lot of movies where they shoot
Naturally, the conversation shifted to the ‘Avatar’ sequels, which the director has been hard at work on for the last few years. Throughout the film’s tremendously long pre-production period, details have slowly begun to emerge. But now that the film is finally in production, Cameron seems to be revealing more and more about the project. Speaking at the TCA press tour this week,
Now comes the latest terror The Meg. In their recent 2018 preview, Warner Bros. Pictures has released a chilling first image from the film starring Jason Statham. Expect a first trailer to hit soon.
Statham plays Jonas Taylor in Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Gravity Pictures’ action adventure. It is slated for release on August 10, 2018.
Jason Statham (“Spy,” “Furious 7,” “The Expendables” films) and award-winning Chinese actress Li Bingbing (“Transformers: Age of Extinction,” “Forbidden Kingdom,” “The Message”) star in the science fiction action thriller, directed by Jon Turteltaub (the “National Treasure” movies, “Last Vegas”).
In the film, a deep-sea submersible—part of an international undersea observation program—has been attacked by a massive creature, previously thought to be extinct,

Dushku on Saturday disclosed via Facebook that she was assaulted at the age of 12 while working on the film. Dushku named stunt coordinator Joel Kramer as her alleged assailant. Kramer has denied Dushku’s allegation.
“Eliza is very brave for speaking up,” Cameron said Saturday during his appearance at the Television Critics Association press tour to promote his AMC series “James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction.” “I think all the women are that are speaking up and calling for a reckoning now (are brave).”
Cameron called it “heartbreaking that it happened to her” on his film.
Cameron said he was unaware of the incident involving Dushku at the time, and he noted that he has not worked with the man he called “the other party” since “True Lies.” “Had I known
“Eliza is very brave for speaking up,” he said at the Television Critics Association press tour Saturday, also noting that she is one of many women speaking out about past abuse. “I think this has been endemic throughout human systems — it’s just heartbreaking that it happened to her.”

Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” appears to be leading the rest of the pack with around $21 million for the four days, according to Friday’s first forecasts, followed by the openings of “Paddington 2” with $18 million and Taraji P. Henson’s “Proud Mary” battling “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” for fourth place with about $16 million each. Liam Neeson’s “The Commuter” was arriving with about $12 million, fighting for sixth with the fourth weekend of Hugh Jackman’s “The Greatest Showman” and the second weekend of “Insidious: The Last Key.”
Should “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” make it to $30 million this weekend, it would be only the 11th title to exceed that mark during the Mlk weekend, according to [link
Nintendo have certainly upped their marketing & PR game in recent months (and years), playing up to several rumours since the turn of the new year regarding a Nintendo Direct in January. As you probably know, the Nintendo Switch is selling like hot cakes, but it does need to keep up the momentum for 2018, even after showing their hand with promises of Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3 and a currently untitled mainline Pokemon game. After several cryptic tweets yesterday, such as this one;

It became apparent that the big N weren’t just teasing us, they in fact dropped a brief 15-minute Nintendo ‘mini’ Direct today with some new 1st party and 3rd party announcements. However, there’s a clear reason why Nintendo didn’t want to casually announce the direct, instead of just dropping it today,
As part of a major reorganization, Toby Emmerich is being promoted to chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, while Sue Kroll, the president of worldwide marketing and distribution, is relinquishing her role for a three-year producer deal on the Burbank lot. Kroll has been with the studio for decades and has deep relationships with filmmakers and stars such as Christopher Nolan, Clint Eastwood, and Tom Cruise. She will become a producer on the lot.
As part of the shake-up, Blair Rich will head global theatrical and home entertainment marketing. Rich has been courted by several studios in recent months, and is highly valued internally. She was one of the masterminds behind the marketing campaign for last fall’s blockbuster “It.” In addition, Ron Sanders will serve as president, worldwide distribution at the studio, assuming responsibility for global theatrical distribution while retaining his role as president of the home entertainment
Warner Bros, the Harry Potter films, and the assorted struggles with 3D...
This year marks the tenth anniversary of Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince, a movie I caught up with again over the weekend. The sixth in the boxset of eight, I’d not seen it since its release, and I’ve gradually been rewatching the Potter films on the Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray format. So far, Half-Blood Prince is the one that benefits the most from the 4K upgrade. The sombre palette particularly takes advantage of the extra resolution afforded.
The film, though, was also the second in the series to be released partially in 3D, after the ending of Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix had enjoyed/suffered a post-production overhaul of its finale with certain screenings. With Avatar still just around the corner, Warner Bros was experimenting with 3D more than fully
Debuting on May 9, 1994, “Avatar” is the sixty-ninth episode of Batman: The Animated Series. Introduced with a stunning title card evoking historical art from ancient Egypt, until you catch the stylized Batman emblems, Carlos Rodriguez’s score draws the audience in with pomp worthy of an old Hollywood epic. Writer Michael Reaves and director Kevin Altieri keep this theme alive throughout “Avatar,” pairing Batman and Talia on a journey across the globe.

“I’s just male Hollywood doing the same old thing,” Cameron said of the film, “I’m not saying I didn’t like the movie but, to me, it’s a step backwards.”
Cameron’s criticism upset many who felt “Wonder Woman” was a progressive step forward for blockbuster filmmaking. Now Gadot has finally weighed in on the matter in a comment to Entertainment Weekly. The actress believes Cameron was only looking for publicity when he bad mouthed her blockbuster.
“I didn’t want to give him the stage,” Gadot said
James Cameron didn't understand all of the supposed hype surrounding Wonder Woman because he felt that the movie was a step "backwards" for women while also saying that it "objectified an icon" because of Gal Gadot's looks. Instead, he
“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is the leader on the domestic chart with $936.6 million, followed by “Avatar” at $760 million, “Titanic” at $659 million, “Jurassic World” at $652 million, and “Marvel’s The Avengers” at $623 million. “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” took in $7.9 million on Tuesday and will be battling “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” for the top spot this weekend at the North American box office, with both projected to earn $28 million to $30 million each.
“The Last Jedi” has also become the 19th-largest global release of all time with $1.09 billion, passing “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Toy Story 3.” The Disney-Lucasfilm tentpole should surpass “Transformers: Age of Extinction” and “Skyfall” for the 17th spot on Wednesday.
