Terminator 2: Judgment Day Clips Trailer


Terminator 2: Judgment Day was one of the best movies of the 90's and even still holds its own on many movie best-of lists. The classic film has now been remastered and it will be released in 3D. 

The movie follows on from the original Terminator movie (released in 1984) and follows the life of a teenage boy called John Connor. John has been placed in foster care since his mother is detained in a mental institute. John's mother, Sarah, has trained John since a young age to be ready for the day when he leads a resistance force against a powerful company called Skynet - this is a story John began to believe but as he got older and his mother was eventually arrested, came to distrust his mom's word. However, when John finds himself being chased by a cop with incredible speed and strength, John begins to realise that perhaps someone is trying to kill him after all. The cop turns out to be a polyalloy cyborg called T-1000 who's been sent to earth to track down John and kill him to stop him fulfilling his destiny. 

To protect John, the future version of himself sent another cyborg back in time to protect him. This cyborg is a T-800 and isn't as capable of shapeshifting (like T-1000) but is programmed to go to any lengths to save the boy. In order for John to understand the stories his mother had always told him, he commands T-800 to help him break his mom out of the secure mental wing. Now the two humans and cyborg are put against the clock on a mission to stop Skynet from ever progressing while also being constantly chased by T-1000.

James Cameron

The sequel to all-time 2009 box office hit Avatar has hit the skids - again - with director James Cameron revealing Avatar 2, 3, 4 and 5 will not be surfacing in 2018.

James Cameron Reclaims 'Terminator' Rights For Forthcoming Sequel


James Cameron

James Cameron is reported to be overseeing the final film of the 'Terminator' series, acting as something of a godfather to in-talks director Tim Miller. So far, details are vague as to whether the upcoming film will mark a re-boot of the story, or merely act as a concluding paragraph in a long saga.

James CameronJames Cameron to oversee final 'Terminator' installment?

The filmmaker who first created the sci-fi franchise will take back some rights to his beloved series in 2019, which means he may have a certain degree of control over how the story will end - or, indeed, how it will be re-told. He is rumoured to be working with Tim Miller who directed 'Deadpool'.

Terminator Genisys - James Cameron Featurette

James Cameron Announces That First 'Avatar' Sequel Has Been Delayed Until 2017


James Cameron

Avatar director James Cameron has announced that the release of the film’s first of three long awaited sequels has been pushed back a year, to 2017. Speaking in New Zealand, Cameron blamed the ‘complex job’ of writing the three sequels simultaneously on the delay. The first follow up to the 2009 box office hit was meant to land in theatres in just over a year.

James Cameron Avatar director James Cameron

“There's a layer of complexity in getting the story to work as a saga across three films that you don't get when you're making a stand-alone film," the director said while taking part in an event to promote the film industry in Wellington.

James Cameron

A woman behind a virtual reality simulator of the Titanic disaster is suing filmmaker James Cameron for $1 billion. Stay with us here.

Arnold Schwarzenegger: The 'Avatar 2' Antagonist?


Arnold Schwarzenegger James Cameron

If the latest rumors are to be believed, then good ol’ Arnie Schwarzenegger will be making it four films with James Cameron, as he might be joining the Avatar 2 cast in the role of ‘bad guy’. This is, of course, according to the Latino Review, who so often gets this stuff spot on. If it’s true, then it’s goes under the file: huge movie news.

Cameron steered Arnie to Hollywood notoriety with Terminator 1, Terminator 2, and True Lies, and a reunion with the irrepressible Austrian would represent a major boon. According to the Review, “Arnold’s film career post politics has been straight up bumjuice,” so an entry into the Avatar franchise would be most welcome.

“Movie-wise, he’s tied up with his next two movies, but hopefully, there’s something down the line when he’s finished with that,” Schwarzenegger told the MTV Movies Blog earlier this year. “I always look forward to working with him because Cameron is a very talented director."

Heart-Racing 'Gravity' Trailer Released As October Release Inches Closer


George Clooney Sandra Bullock Alfonso Cuaron James Cameron

After months of being tantalised with intriguing and hauntingly beautiful Gravity teaser clips, we finally have our first, full-length official trailer that makes us more excited about the upcoming Alfonso Cuarón-directed space thriller than ever.

Gravity Movie Still
Sandra & George's Performance As Two Astronauts Has Been Praised.

The trailer, released a month ahead of Gravity's early October theatrical release date fleshes out the stark clips we'd been teased with and reveals more of the action scenes as George Clooney and Sandra Bullock struggle as two astronauts adrift in space after their shuttle is damaged by space debris. We are reminded of the odds faced by our astronauts as they float "372 miles above the earth." An on-screen blurb reads "There is nothing to carry sound. No air pressure, no Oxygen. Life in space is impossible."

James Cameron And The Mystery Of The Three Avatar Sequels


James Cameron

Three Avatar sequels in three consecutive years? We knew James Cameron was ambitious, but this… this is madness (cue obligatory 300 reference.) Still, the news, as announced by MTV, is that not only has Cameron added a third Avatar sequel to his schedule (that’s four movies in total, if you’re counting), but he plans to film all three at the same time. You might want to go back and read over that again.

James Cameron, VES Awards
A little ambition never hurt anybody...

Cameron explained in his interview with MTV News that he is already putting together a writing and production team for each separate movie. These people will coordinate their work to get the scripts in good enough shape for filming to begin sometime next year. Simultaneously. On all three movies. The moral of this story is that James Cameron does not mess around when it comes to his franchises. But it’s alright, because it’s not like he has a lot of high expectations to meet, apart from Avatar being the highest grossing movie of all time and all.

Paramount’s Judgement Day: Is Arnie Back As Terminator, Or Is It Hasta La Vista, Baby?

Terminator will be returning in 2015, Paramount announced on Tuesday (26th June 2013), the script is already in the development. Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are currently working on the project. No casting decisions have been revealed and it is unknown if Arnold Schwarzenegger will return to the role as the Terminator. 

Arnold SchwarzeneggerArnold Schwarzenegger at The Last Stand premiere in London. 

The James Cameron films follow, for anyone who hasn't visited earth anytime in the last 30 years, the adventures of John Connor. Initially only a glint in his father's eye, Connor is pursued by an assortment of robot assassins from the future. The first robot was played by Arnold Schwarzenegger who has appeared, some form or the other, in every Terminator film since. 

It's likely he will make an appearance in the forthcoming film. His likeness was featured in special effects form in the last film, Terminator Salvation, starring Christian Bale and Sam Worthington. Schwarzenegger has much bigger things going on at the time: bizarrely being the Republican Governor of California. His term ended in 2011 so he is now free from public duties, should he wish to be involved.

World's Greatest Effects Guru Ray Harryhausen Dies Aged 92


Ray Harryhausen Nick Park Steven Spielberg George Lucas James Cameron

Ray Harryhausen, a visual effects guru often considered to have been the finest in the movie business, has died aged 92. Best known for his pioneering work on Star Wars, Jason and the Argonauts and Clash of the Titans, Harryhausen made his models by hand and shot them frame by frame to create some of the best-know sequences in cinema.

The technique was taken up by the likes of Nick Park, co-creator of the Wallace & Gromit movies who called Harryhausen "one of the true greats" this week. Star Wars creator George Lucas said that without him "there would likely have been no Star Wars." Shaun of the Dead director Edgar Wright said, "I loved every single frame of Ray Harryhausen's work.He was the man who made me believe in monsters."

Harryhausen's finest moment came when he animated seven skeletons who came to life in Jason and the Argonauts - a sequence that took three months to film, according to BBC News.

James Cameron's Avatar 2 Team Investigate New Underwater Filming Techniques


James Cameron Jon Landau

Never one to shirk from a challenge, James Cameron and his team of adventurous film-makers have been working out ways in which they can perfect the underwater scenes that they have planned for the highly-anticipated sequel to Avatar. Jon Landau, the Oscar winning producer explained their plans, at the recent NAB Technology Summit, The Hollywood Reporter reveal: “We have kept a team of digital artists on from Avatar in order to test how we can create performance capture underwater. We could simulate water [in computer graphics], but we can't simulate the actor's experience, so we are going to capture performance in a tank.”

Since the Hobbit was filmed at 48 frames per second, rather than the standard 24, Landau addressed whether or not the Avatar team would adopt a similar approach. Although the method is being explored, they have not yet decided on whether or not they’ll adopt it. “We want to take advantage of the technology that people are putting out there to make the next two movies more engaging and visually tantalizing, and wrap up the story arc of our two main characters… Nobody should dictate to a filmmaker whether they should make films at 24, 48 or 60fps since the technology now exists and can be presented with the same cinema equipment.”

Landau also dismissed the rumors that Cameron’s 2012 dive to the Challenger Deep had anything to do with the making of a new Avatar movie. “He is an explorer. … Yes they filmed. It had nothing to do with Avatar.”

Odds Are On For No One As Oscars Look To Be Close


Steven Spielberg Hugh Jackman Daniel Day Lewis Jennifer Lawrence Kathryn Bigelow James Cameron Joaquin Phoenix Sally Field

With the nominations for 2013's Academy Awards being revealed today, all the fields are open in the four major categories as there seems to be no real, clear cut contenders for the top prizes.

Lincoln has taken the brunt of the nominations, with twelve nominations in total, so it looks as though Steven Spielberg's historical epic might be favourite for some of the top awards too- Daniel Day-Lewis, Steven Spielberg and the film itself looking odds on favourite with Oddschecker.com. But still, are things really as clear cut as they seem? Maybe not, with the odds aside, the close(ish) ones at that, nothing really seems that clear really.

Avatar was the odds on winner back in 2010, but it was the former Mrs James Cameron, Katherine Bigelow, to see her film sweep the awards. Day-Lewis in particular has some competition in his field, with Cannes winner Joaquin Phoenix and first time nominees Bradley Cooper and Hugh Jackman biting at his heels. Both Argo and Zero Dark Thirty look as though they could take the top award of the night from under the president's nose, but with no Ben Affleck, it does look as though Ang Lee may be Spielberg's only competition to top director gong.

The Informationist: James Cameron Looking At Life Beyond ‘Avatar


James Cameron

James Cameron is already looking ahead to life beyond his two ‘Avatar’ sequels. Err, steady on Jim, might it not be worth getting those out of the way first? According to The Los Angeles Times Cameron's production company, Lightstorm Entertainment, has optioned the rights to ‘The Informationist’, the debut book by Taylor Stevens, with plans for Cameron to direct it for 20th Century Fox.

 The story is set in Africa and follows a researcher hired to help find the daughter of a Texas oil billionaire. Jon Landau, Cameron’s producing partner, commented "This is one of the most cinematic books I’ve ever read, and it's got all the classic Jim Cameron elements - a female protagonist who is smart, physically adept and skilled, great action, an unexpected love story."

Landau continued, adding that Cameron would hire a screenwriter to adapt it while he's in production on the ‘Avatar’ sequels. "The writing process, the perfect time to do that is when you’re in production on something else," he commented. "You need the relief during the process of making a movie like 'Avatar' where you can escape on a weekend and read a draft." Oh enough of that already, Landau, quit holding out on us, when are the ‘Avatar’ sequels actually getting going? "We don't have a shooting script, but we have a direction we're going in.” Well that’s no help whatsoever.

James Cameron's To Take On 'The Informationist' After Avatar


James Cameron

James Cameron will direct The Informationist, once he's done and dusted with the Avatar franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The Informationist, a novel by Taylor Stevens, tells the story of Vanessa Munroe - a woman born in central Africa who spent her teenage years as a protege of gunners and mercenaries. Cameron will produce the project with his Lightstorm partner Jon Landau. "This was an opportunity to continue our relationship with Fox and Jim Gianopulos beyond the Avatar films," Landau said in a statement to THR. "We were drawn to this book because of the terrific, compelling narrative and the character, who typifies the strong female protagonists that have inhabited Jim's work. In this case, Vanessa Munroe is essentially a mix of Lisbeth Salander and Jason Bourne." Cameron, one of film's goliaths, said this: "Taylor Stevens' Vanessa Michael Munroe is an intriguing and compelling heroine with an agile mind and a thirst for adventure. Equally fascinating for me is her emotional life and her unexpected love story."

Cameron is responsible for the two top grossing films of all time, with Titanic and Avatar, and is showing no signs of relenting by adding this latest project to his ever growing to do list. Avatar 2 is currently dominating his mind, though, as the Box Office looks forward to another Cameron money hoover.

Mythbusters: Did Jack Really Have To Die In Titanic? Perhaps Not!


James Cameron

James Cameron’s Titanic was an epic cinematic reprisal of the tragic nautical tale. But did the film’s heart-breaking, tear-jerking ending really have to ‘go down’ like that?

According to the myth busting TV show imaginatively titled, MythBusters: no it did not. The show’s hosts, Adam and Jamie tested the various ways Jack could have survived, and it looks like with a little more attention to water safety, and a little life jacket initiative, he could have made it to shore with his newfound love. Even a sensible sharing system of the makeshift raft could have ensured survival. Then again, if that had happened, the film probably wouldn’t have been made. James Cameron is fully aware of the debate, but doesn’t quite share the myth-buster’s view. “Actually, it's not a question of room, it's a question of buoyancy," He told IGN recently. "When Jack puts Rose on the raft, then he tries to get on the raft. He's not an idiot, he doesn't want to die. And the raft sinks and kind of flips. So it's clear that there's only enough buoyancy available for one person. So he makes a decision to let her be that person instead of taking them both down."

Cameron’s fictionalized account of the sinking of the Titanic is still considered one of the most successful films ever made, despite being made nearly 16 years ago. To date, it has earned $658,672,302 in North America and $1,526,700,000 in other countries, for a worldwide total of $2,185,372,302.


Ang Lee's 'Life Of Pi' Premieres At New York Film Festival


Ang Lee James Cameron Gerard Depardieu Irrfan Khan

Academy Award winner Ang Lee hit the red carpet on the opening night of the New York Film Festival on Friday night, kick starting the film fest with his latest film, The Life of Pi.

The film, based upon the Yann Martel novel of the same name, explores the life of an India boy named Pi who spends 227 days at sea with his only company being a Bengal tiger, spotted hyena, a zebra and an orang-utan, after becoming shipwreck in the Pacific Ocean. The book, often considered to be un-filmable, explores deep strands of spiritual understanding and reason; something that Ang has tried to recreate on the screen. The film has been a massive undertaking and was shot entirely in 3D as director Lee believed that this method was the only way in which the vibrancy of the novel could be fully expressed on screen. It is thought to have cost up to $100million and took close to four years to make.

Speaking to reporters at the premier, Lee said that he had envisaged the project as soon as he read it back in 2001 and allegedly already agreed to make the film in 3D before James Cameron's Avatar was released in 2009.

Sanctum Review


OK
Inspired by a true story and executive produced by underwater-film fanatic James Cameron, this cave-diving thriller has a lot going for it, thanks to a strong cast and high production values. But the script fails to make anything of the premise.

Fit young Aussie Josh (Wakefield) travels to a remote cave in Papua New Guinea with American financier-adventurer Carl (Gruffudd) and his girlfriend (Parkinson). There they join a team, already deep underground, led by Josh's hard-man dad Frank (Roxburgh). Having just discovered a massive new water-filled chamber, everyone's shocked by the accidental death of a team member (Cratchley). And then a tropical storm descends, flooding their base camp and forcing the spelunkers deeper underground in search of another way out. But the already strained team finds it difficult to work together.

Avatar Review


Extraordinary
After a 12-year-break, Cameron returns to feature filmmaking with a mind-bending epic that's both visually spectacular and emotionally involving.

And the fact that it's in gorgeously rendered 3D is icing on the cake.

In the year 2154, paraplegic Marine Jake (Worthington) is transported to the planet Pandora to join the avatar project. Soon he's in the middle of hostile territory in the genetically cloned body of the Na'vi: three metres tall with blue skin, a tail and a very sensitive ponytail. In the jungle, Jake befriends Neytiri (Saldana), who trains him in the ways of the Na'vi. But this puts him at odds with his employers, who want him to help move the Na'vi so they can plunder the land for a rare mineral.

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles: Season One Review


Very Good
The MILF playing the lead role of the new Terminator TV show is enough to revive interest in the sci-fi franchise after its third film tanked.

Despite not being nearly as buff as Linda Hamilton, Lena Headey pulls off a feisty Sarah Connor: She's gorgeous but tough enough to be taken seriously. Her co-stars aren't half bad either; they're worthy spin-off "successors." But as for the show itself, its first season can be summarized as a series of hits and misses, where the strong points occur at the beginning and the end, sandwiching a mess of boring melodrama in the middle. Nonetheless, when the show's good, it's really good, and those few quality episodes should be powerful enough to reel you into watching season two.

Titanic (1997) Review


Excellent
So here I am, newly engaged, and the subject of honeymoons comes up. I hate the sun, and I don't like flying, so naturally, I say: Cruise! How about Alaska? This is the best idea we've come up with so far... and then we go to see Titanic.

Well, I can't think of anything that would change my mind faster than the sight of 1500 ice-covered dead bodies, bobbing up and down in the ocean, after the sinking of a luxury liner. Let's jump right on the boat, huh?

Strange Days Review


Good
I've never really given much thought to what the turn of the millennium is going to bring. Will it be a new beginning for society and the world? Or will it bring on the apocalypse foretold by Revelations?

Strange Days continuously plays these two possibilities off of each other, and in L.A., on December 31, 1999, it seems either one is equally likely. Ralph Fiennes plays Lenny Nero, a bottom-feeder ex-cop who peddles "clips," full-sensory pieces of memory from real people's lives. These clips are played on "the wire," a device which delivers experiences directly into the brain. The very illegal wire is also the source of a whole slew of problems, including the murder of one Jeriko One, a very influential rap star, and the subsequent stalking of Faith (Juliette Lewis), Nero's ex-girlfriend, for whom he still pines.

The Cutting Edge: The Magic Of Movie Editing Review


Very Good
While "magic" may be a little strong, The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing is a surprisingly interesting film. If you're a filmmaker or an aspiring critic, it may well be essential viewing.

This documentary is precisely what it's title purports to be, an in-depth and instructive look at movie editing that literally spans 100 years of film history, from The Great Train Robbery to Cold Mountain. Through interviews with a copious number of directors and editors, The Cutting Edge covers everything from basic editing techniques like the matching of cuts to modern editing theory as inspired by MTV and The Matrix. The film goes into extreme detail in parts, like when we get to see James Cameron's trick of removing one frame per second out of Terminator 2 to give it more momentum and realism. It's all a little bit insidery and self-congratulatory, but the movie works far more often than not. Any film buff will find it hard not to like.
