James Cameron Says ‘Avengers’ Box Office Records Give Him “A Lot Of Hope” For The Future Of The Theatrical Experience

James Cameron is someone that is used to creating massive blockbuster films that shatter records and become iconic in short order. Just a glance at Cameron’s filmography shows that, as he’s the man responsible for “Aliens,” “Terminator” (and ‘T2’), “Titanic,” and “Avatar,” among others. But the filmmaker saw something happen that he hasn’t seen in quite some time — another filmmaker was able to beat him at the box office.

James Cameron’s Reaction To ‘Avatar’ Losing Box Office Crown: Relief

  • Deadline
James Cameron’s Reaction To ‘Avatar’ Losing Box Office Crown: Relief
Exclusive: When Avengers: Endgame surpassed Avatar to claim the title of the highest-grossing film in history, it ended one of the most impressive reigns in the annals of screen entertainment: James Cameron, first with Titanic (1997) and then with Avatar (2009), had owned the top spot on the all-time chart for a staggering 7,817 consecutive days — just shy of 21 1/2 years.

Cameron was busy in New Zealand working on the sequels to Avatar in late July when Avengers: Endgame (Disney/Marvel Studios) finally eclipsed the original Avatar (Fox) and its $2.79 billion benchmark. Was the ultra-competitive Cameron dejected or sour when he heard the news? Far from it, he says, his first reaction was actually relief and optimism.

“It gives me a lot of hope,” Cameron told Deadline. “Avengers: Endgame is demonstrable proof that people will still go to movie theaters. The thing that scared me most about making Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 was

Drive-In Dust Offs: The Deadly Spawn (1983)

  • DailyDead
Although we were inundated with hockey masks, knives, and axes in the early ‘80s, there were some horror filmmakers looking to do something against the grain; people like Sam Raimi conjuring undead demons in The Evil Dead (1981), or in the case of Douglas McKeown’s The Deadly Spawn (1983), giddily updating Monsters from Space to include voracious face ripping and gallons of the red stuff.

Upon release in April, Vincent Canby of the New York Times called The Deadly Spawn an “amateurish, resolutely unscary, low-budget horror film”, and while points one and three are objective statements, the middle depends on the viewer; if one has a fear of flesh-eating, three-headed, multi-fanged space visitors, this will do the trick.

Amateurish and low-budget go hand in hand; made for a little under $20,000 and filmed on weekends over the course of a year, The Deadly Spawn falters in some regards where others of its ilk normally do.

‘It Chapter 2′ Review

Stars: Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Bill Skarsgård | Written by Gary Dauberman | Directed by Andy Muschietti

When I was about 10 I had a friend whose parents really didn’t seem too bothered what he got up to. I remember thinking at the time how incredibly lucky he was (the thick dust that coated everything and gave me allergies didn’t set any alarm bells ringing… his parents swore! How cool!). This meant when I went for a sleep over we could watch whatever, totally inappropriate horror films we liked. We would scare ourselves witless with Freddy Krueger, the Thing and It.

As a child I was traumatised by Stephen King’s It… I don’t remember exactly how young I was when I saw the made for TV movies, but I was too young. Over a summer holiday in Switzerland I

Isaiah Mustafa on Moving From Football to Acting and Starring in ‘It: Chapter Two’
Isaiah Mustafa was a journeyman pro football wide receiver with a dream of becoming an actor. Then he landed the spot as the suave Old Spice spokesman who burst out of the shower wearing nothing but a bath towel and deodorant. The moment led to appearances in sitcoms like “Anger Management” and “Baby Daddy,” after which he landed a recurring role on Freeform’s “Shadowhunters.” Next up, he stars alongside Jessica Chastain as the adult Mike Hanlon in “It: Chapter Two,” opening Sept. 6. Here, Mustafa discusses career changes and his experience on the set of Stephen King’s killer clown franchise.

You had a big career switch.

I just take the opportunity that’s given to me. I love basketball. I played it all through high school, but I was vertically challenged as far as being in the NBA. I switched to something that I thought would be a little easier,

First Ad Astra Clip Takes Brad Pitt to the Moon as Tickets Go on Sale
The premiere of Ad Astra is just weeks away, and 20th Century Fox has released a special preview to up the excitement. The clip gives a quick look at the action-filled "Moon Rover" sequence and gives a few more details about the film's unique setting.

Starring Brad Pitt, Ad Astra is a paranoid thriller in space that follows Roy McBride (Pitt) on a mission across an unforgiving solar system to uncover the truth about his missing father and his doomed expedition that now, 30 years later, threatens the universe.

The captivating new clip opens with our main character, Roy, preparing to travel across the moon's surface to the "far side launch complex." It's not an easy task, which Sean Blakemore's Willy Levant makes clear when he says this.

"We've been having trouble with pirates since September. Some countries been giving them safe haven. They'll take hostages or go for our rovers.

Witness The New Trailer For ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’

Linda Hamilton stars in Skydance Productions and Paramount Pictures’ “Terminator: Dark Fate.”

20th Century Fox has just dropped the brand new trailer for the new installment in the Terminator franchise, Terminator: Dark Fate. The release of the film is drawing ever nearer with the big-budget feature set to explode on our screens on 23rd October. Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger head up the cast of the film, which is directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool).

Director Tim Miller has said: “I remember watching T2 in Westwood when I had just moved to La – it was an amazing experience. I was particularly stoked because Jim had done Aliens a few years before and it is – hands down – my favorite action movie of all time. It blew my mind, as it was unlike any sci-film I had ever seen – it felt like a grounded, realistic and gritty future. And of course, T2 was

Richard Elfman On His Upcoming Hipsters, Gangsters, Aliens & Geeks

Tony Sokol Aug 29, 2019

Forbidden Zone director Richard Elfman pulls a movie with the key to the universe out of his butt in Hipsters, Gangsters, Aliens & Geeks.

In the pantheon of cult movies, Forbidden Zone stands at high midnight. Richard Elfman's 1980 Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo vehicle was a one-of-a-kind film careening down on a one-way street to an oddly predestined end. On the clock of Midnight Movies, his upcoming Hipsters, Gangsters, Aliens & Geeks runs sometime after 3 a.m., striking after the popcorn has been swept under the seats by the night crew. Independent to its core and featuring Austin Powers' Verne Troyer in his last role, the movie cannot be brushed aside by the barrage of blockbusters. Hipsters, Gangsters, Aliens & Geeks is the antidote to mainstream and a breakneck cure for the run-of-the-mill.

Shot in a fast-paced, classic screen-comedy style, the film is intra-dimensional, extraterrestrial and sonically grounded.

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’: James Cameron On Rewired Franchise, Possible New Trilogy
Exclusive: James Cameron understands better than anyone that revisiting the past to alter the course of history is a dicey proposition at best, but that hasn’t stopped the Hollywood titan from taking on his latest cinematic mission: returning to The Terminator franchise that gave him the first signature success of his history-making career.

“It’s special,” Cameron said of the Terminator success that propelled him toward ever-grander spectacle projects like Aliens, The Abyss, Titanic, and Avatar. Sci-fi’s greatest showman moved on from his Skynet series in 1991, but now he’s reunited with his first great cinematic brand through Terminator: Dark Fate, the Skydance Productions and Paramount Pictures release that hits theaters November 1.

Cameron is joined by the franchise’s two signature stars, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, as well as Edward Furlong, who was a child actor when he portrayed John Connor 28 years ago in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

5 Things Alien Did Better Than Aliens (& 5 Things Aliens Did Better)

It’s an age-old question: which movie is better, Alien or Aliens? It’s not often that fans debate whether a sequel is better than the original, but it’s not usually this close a call. In the Alien fan base, this debate is considered to be comparing apples and oranges. Alien is more of a horror movie, and Aliens is more of an action movie. They’re both as good as they can be in those genres.

James Cameron movies: All 8 films ranked worst to best include ‘Titanic,’ ‘Terminator 2,’ ‘Avatar’
James Cameron celebrates his 65th birthday on August 16, 2019. With three Academy Awards and some of the biggest box office champs of all time under his belt, the director has certainly found a way to blend art and commerce to great effect. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look back at all eight of his films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1954 in Ontario, Canada, Cameron cut his teeth with a variety of on-set jobs, most notably as a special effects artist. Although he technically made his directorial debut with the creature feature “Piranha II: The Spawning” (1982), he truly burst onto the scene with the sci-fi hit “The Terminator” (1982), which cast Arnold Schwarzenegger as a futuristic cyborg sent on a mission to kill a young woman (Linda Hamilton) before she can give birth to the messiah.

Robocop Returns has lost its director, as helmer Neill Blomkamp confirms he is no longer attached to the sequel.

Blu-ray Review: Robowar (1988)

Man, Bruno Mattei sure loved making movies. It’s there in every frame he ever shot; his passion for film is responsible for countless classics like…okay classics is such a loaded and pliable word depending on one’s outlook. But he sure made enthusiastic films, eager to please; and most importantly he made movies that he thought audiences would want to see based on what they already loved. Case in point: Robowar (1988), a Predator “homage” mixed with a dash or two of Robocop that ends up being uniquely Italian. And if you think anyone other than Severin Films would gift you a Bruno Blu you need a timeout in the boiling jungles of the Philippines.

Where does one even start? Mattei and his frequent cohort Claudio Fragasso headed to the Philippines to make two films, both from Drudi’s scripts: this one, and After Death (aka Zombie 4) which Fragasso helmed.
