Terminator 6

Okay, okay – so the killer robots in the Terminator movies aren’t technically killer robots, they’re cybernetic organisms. (“Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton,” as one helpfully explains in T2.) But those time-traveling death machines must look like Arnold Schwarzenegger for a reason, right?

That’s a topic that’s been on James Cameron‘s mind lately, and in a new interview, he explains how Terminator 6 – the movie he’s producing that has Deadpool’s Tim Miller supposedly lined up to direct – will explain exactly why the T-800 models look like a muscle-bound Austrian man. Read his explanation below.

Josh Brolin Turned Down Avatar

Not only is director James Cameron being quite ambitious by planning four Avatar sequels that are being shot back-to-back, but he’s making some surprising choices for his cast.

While it was expected that Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana would reprise their roles as Jake Sully, in his Na-vi avatar body, and the Pandora native Neytiri, we’ve since learned that in addition to Sigourney Weaver returning as a new character, the deceased villains played by Stephen Lang and Matt Gerald will somehow be coming back as the same characters. But that doesn’t mean James Cameron didn’t try to bring some new blood in for these movies.

No Country for Old Men and Avengers: Infinity War star Josh Brolin was offered a role in the Avatar sequels, but the actor wasn’t interested, so he turned down the part. That apparently did not sit well with James Cameron. Welcome to your new favorite celebrity feud. Read More »

CCH Pounder Avatar 2

Remember the character Mo’at from James Cameron‘s Avatar? Of course you do! It’s Mo’at! You know, that one character…who does that thing…Okay, so I don’t remember Mo’at at all. But maybe some super fans will recall that Mo’at is a Na’vi spiritual leader and the mother of Zoe Saldana’s character, Neytiri.

Why does this matter? Because Mo’at is back, baby. Cameron has hired actress CCH Pounder to reprise her role in Avatar 2, 3, 4, and 5.

new terminator trilogy

Like an unkillable robot, the Terminator franchise may rise from the ashes again.

Because James Cameron, who created the sci-fi series and directed the original two movies, believes in no fate but the one you make. Now, he’s talking with the studio that nearly soured the legacy of the classic sci-fi franchise with the critically panned Terminator Genysis to shepherd the next chapter of the series.

James Cameron Action Figure

When it comes to action figures inspired by fan favorite movies of the 1980s, the toy manufacturer NECA has been knocking it out of the park. They especially deserve praise for their spectacular line of toys based on both Ridley Scott’s original 1979 sci-fi horror classic Alien, and their more recent ongoing line of figures inspired by James Cameron‘s more blockbuster style follow-up Aliens. But now they’re bringing a figure to shelves that no one expected.

Aliens director James Cameron will be getting his own action figure from NECA this fall, but it’s not quite as cool as I hoped it would be. You’ll see what I mean when you check out the photos of the James Cameron action figure below. Read More »

Terminator 2

If you never got a chance to see Terminator 2: Judgement Day in theaters, then lucky for you, $7 million has been spent on converting James Cameron‘s action movie classic to 3D for a re-release. The director was hoping it’d be in theaters last summer for the 25th anniversary, but that didn’t pan out. The 3D conversion of Titanic was well-received, and in a new trailer for Terminator 2: 3D, Cameron appears confident audiences will embrace his iconic sequel in 3D as well.

Below, watch the Terminator 2 3D trailer.

Glasses-Free 3D

You may have seen a lot of headlines in the past 24 hours about how James Cameron’s long-awaited Avatar 2 will feature glasses-free 3D technology. Cameron’s an innovative filmmaker who has been working on developing brand new tech for underwater motion capture for his ambitious sequels, and his entire career has basically been about pushing boundaries of what’s possible when it comes to filmmaking. So yeah, it’d be easy to believe the hype about glasses-free 3D.

Unfortunately, the promise of that particular bit of technology is not anywhere near as definitive as many of those headlines may have led you to believe. The truth is a lot less sexy, and much less headline-friendly.

avatar universe

I learned a long time ago to think twice before doubting James Cameron. When everyone in Hollywood thought he was in the midst of an over-budgeted disaster, Cameron delivered what became the highest grossing movie of all time. The fact that the previous sentence could be referring to either Titanic or Avatar and be equally accurate is absolutely nuts, and while I’ve made my fair share of jokes about the upcoming Avatar sequels never getting off the ground, we now know exactly when Cameron will be diving back into the alien world of Pandora to begin filming.

Plus, each of the sequels are now being described as “stand-alone” stories that connect to form a larger saga. Find out the official Avatar 2 start date below.

Avatar 2 delay

James Cameron isn’t concerned at all about how the sequel to Avatar is going to perform after a 10-year wait. Considering the first film made around $2.7 billion dollars worldwide, which certainly isn’t a gross you hit because of pure luck, he’s probably correct not be worried. Cameron has defied expectations in the past with the best results imaginable, and yet some people still underestimate the director of TitanicTerminator 2: Judgment Day, and Aliens.

Below, learn why Cameron isn’t sweating the Avatar 2 delay.
