Five years have passed since audiences were first transported to Pandora in James Cameron‘s Avatar. Since then, hype surrounding the highest-grossing film of all time has subsided a bit. But, with three sequels coming between 2016 and 2018, the writer/director is preparing to bombard the world with his vision once again.
We know an Avatar Land is in the works for Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom and now Cameron is teaming up with Cirque du Soleil to create a live-action, touring show based on the film. It will be Cirque’s first movie-themed show ever. Read More »

2014 marks the 30th anniversary of Ivan Reitman’s comedy classic Ghostbusters. And over the past few months, Gallery 1988 has been presenting a fully authorized art show to celebrate the occasion. It kicked off in New York, is currently in Los Angeles and will make a stop in Chicago on June 20-22 before heading to San Diego Comic-Con.
And though many of the pieces in the show have made it online, and some have even sold out, there’s been no place to view the entire exhibit in digital form. Until now.
Slashfilm is proud to be the exclusive online home of the Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary Art Exhibit. Below we’ve got five pages with almost 150 different pieces of art. Everything from limited edition posters to original paintings, sculptures and more. It’s an embarrassment of Ghostbusting riches and you can check it all out by clicking here. Read More »
The four-city, 70-plus artist Ghostbusters 30th Anniversary art show kicks off this Saturday April 19 in New York City. Gallery 1988 is curating the event and they’ve slowly been releasing more and more looks at the show. Now it’s our turn.
/Film is proud to exclusively debut five brand new pieces from the show: Pieces by Mark Englert, Dan Mumford, Cuddly Rigor Mortis plus two super limited variants. That’s right. In addition to the commemorative series of screenprints that’ll be available in store and online, each one of those posters (by the likes of Tom Whalen, Mike Mitchell, Phantom City Creative and others) will have extra special variants that will only be sold in super limited quantities at each event. Below, you’ll get your first glimpse at two of those variants, the slimed editions of the previously revealed Anthony Petrie and Joshua Budich pieces.

The latest chapter in the Star Wars saga will return to the home planet of Anakin and Luke Skywalker. Star Wars Episode VII will take place, at least partially, on the desert planet of Tatooine.
A new report confirms the previously reported information that filming in Morocco will, in fact, double for the famous desert planet C-3PO and R2-D2 landed on at the beginning of Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope. The same planet Luke Skywalker grew up on with his Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, where Obi-wan Kenobi grew old, Qui-Gon Jinn found Anakin Skywalker and on which Jabba the Hutt displayed Han Solo in Carbonite. Read about the Star Wars 7 Tatooine shoot below.
Update: In addition to the report about shooting in Morocco, THR now reports that Abu Dhabi will be used as a location, for up to four weeks. Shooting “in and around” the city will help recreate Tatooine. Original report follows.

This is so cool. The Quentin Tarantino-written, Tony Scott-directed film True Romance celebrated its 20th anniversary last year. Though it’s a bit late, a huge celebration of the film is set for May 2-3 in Burbank, CA.

The Alien movies are creepy and terrifying, and no sane person would actually want to live through (or, as often as not, die from) the characters’ terrifying ordeals. But the characters designed by H.R. Giger are fascinating ones, and it’s tough to imagine any sci-fi fan not wanting to get a closer look. If cocktails are also involved, all the better.
The creature designer has already opened up two bars based on his creations, both in Switzerland, and according to a new report may now open a third in the U.S. as part of the Sci-Fi Hotel. Details like “when” and “where” are still being worked out, but it’ll be an “immersive” experience like the other ones. Hit the jump for more details.

The first trailer for Peter Jackson‘s second Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, answered one of everyone’s biggest questions about the sequel. Would Jackson’s second film get us all the way into the Lonely Mountain and reveal Smaug, the malicious and greedy dragon at the end of the Dwarves quest? The title suggested it but the trailer confirmed it. Bilbo’s interactions with the dragon (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch) responsible for forcing the dwarves out of their home are some of the most memorable and tense ones in the book. However, the first film didn’t give us much idea of what Smaug looked like and the trailer only showed us his head. Would audiences see Smaug for themselves before the film opened on December 13?
That answer has been revealed in the most unexpected of places. Smaug has been revealed on the side of some Air New Zealand planes, a company with a long history of collaboration with Jackson and the franchise. Check it out below. Read More »
