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.

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'.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
