We’re back in a familiar part of a cycle with respect to James Cameron and his films, where, in the long and seemingly fallow period between movies, people tend to question the wisdom of his next move. It happened before Titanic, and before Avatar. We know how both of those films turned out, at least from the perspective of business and cultural impact. But we still wonder about the value of making not one, but three Avatar sequels.
Cameron and Fox have been developing the movies for a while, and will soon start in earnest on production, with the first film scheduled for release in late 2016. And to hear the writer/director tell it, Avatar is the vehicle through which he can express all his artistic ideas going forward. Read More »

Video game movies get a bad rap, often for good reason, but there’s reason to hope for the best with some of UbiSoft’s upcoming projects. The game publisher has been directly involved with developing a whole slate of films based on its game titles, and hiring great talent to make the films a reality.
Assassin’s Creed, for example, will star Michael Fassbender. The actor is also producing, and working with director Justin Kurzel, who directed Fassbender in Macbeth. It’s been a while since we had any good report of progress on the film but Fassbender now says it is still moving forward, and that they have an intense desire to “respect the game.” Read More »
Following her latest out-of-this-world role in Guardians of the Galaxy, Zoe Saldana is allowed to get a little more grounded in the new Book of Life trailer. But just a little.
The Guillermo del Toro-produced epic starts out in our world, but then spills over into the land of the dead and the land of the forgotten. At the center of the tale is Manolo (Diego Luna), a young man who harbors dreams of becoming a musician.
Saldana plays Maria, the object of Manolo’s affections, and Channing Tatum rounds out the lead cast as Joaquin, Manolo’s friend and rival. Ice Cube and Christina Applegate also star. Watch the new Book of Life trailer after the jump.

Sorry folks, no new Matthew Vaughn film this year. After a stellar presentation at San Diego Comic-Con, Fox has moved Vaughn’s comic book adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service starring Colin Firth from October of this year into February 2015. It’ll now occupy the slot another Fox film, the Poltergeist remake, originally held.
That film, directed by Gil Kenan, will now open July 24, 2015, making it the big horror movie of next Summer. Read more about the Kingsman and Poltergeist remake release dates below. Read More »

Before Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past was released and became one of the biggest films of the summer, there was lots of talk about what we wouldn’t see. Scenes with Anna Paquin as Rogue, in particular, were famously cut. But if the film’s $750 million worldwide gross has anything to say, maybe that was the right decision. Still, fans enjoy seeing more from films they love and it seems like 20th Century Fox is happy to oblige.
A few weeks ago, producer Lauren Shuler Donner hinted on Twitter about an extended edition of the movie. Now one of Fox’s executives has suggested it’ll be out next year. Check out Days of Future Past extended edition tweets below. Read More »

For a massive superhero reboot, Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four had one of the quietest shoots in recent memory. Sure a few photos of the stars leaked here and there, and maybe even a glimpse of the Thing, but for the most part nothing has been spoiled by the press or paparazzi during filming. Which, these days, is a rarity.
So it’s exciting when one of the film’s stars, Kate Mara (who plays the Invisible Woman), jumps on Twitter not only to announce the film is finished, but post a photo of herself with her three co-stars: Mr. Fantastic played by Miles Teller, the Human Torch played by Michael B. Jordan and The Thing played by Jamie Bell.
They’re all in street clothes unfortunately, so no reveal of the Fantastic Four costumes just yet, but it’s a great shot none the less. Check out the Fantastic Four cast photo below. Read More »
