Towards the end of 2019, director James Cameron said the performance capture side of both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 had been completed. At the time, he said they were mostly done with the live-action side of production too, but they had a couple more months of work to do that would be completed in the spring. However, he wasn’t expecting the coronavirus pandemic to put a wrench in those plans, and production in New Zealand was forced to shut down a bit, resulting all the Avatar sequels being delayed.
Thankfully, James Cameron and his crew have been back at work, and now the director has provided an update saying that live-action shooting for Avatar 2 is complete, and soon they’ll be finished with live-action production for Avatar 3 as well. Read More »
The only constant thing in life is change. A simple statement but profoundly complex given the effects time has on our emotions, physical bodies, and maturation. Werewolf stories utilize physical transformation on a thematic level in various ways, but at the heart of their stories is an aspect of the uncontrollable loss of self through physical alterations. This sub-genre of horror gives glimpses into our resistance to change and is one reason why it resonates with audiences multiple times over. Despite change being a universal experience, there are still parts of ourselves we claw to hold onto. Twin directors (Ludovic and Zoren Boukherma) explore these themes in their sophomore film, Teddy. A thirsty intensity of young angst and love, Teddy is a tale of ravenous revenge and resistance towards change. Read More »

The Movie: Father of the Bride Part III (ish)
Where You Can Stream It: Netflix’s YouTube
The Pitch: This week, Netflix surprised everybody with the debut of a mini-sequel to the 1991 remake of Father of the Bride and the baby blossoming sequel that followed four years later. It’s been 25 years since we spent time with the Banks family, and if you’re wondering what the family has been up to, Father of the Bride Part II (ish) will (kind of) show you as they reunite for in a breezy virtual family meeting, including the grown up babies who were born in Father of the Bride Part II, played by two very familiar young actors. It’s quite the family affair.
Why It’s Essential Viewing: Look, things are pretty bleak here in 2020, so we’ll take any kind of emotional boost we can get. And if you’re looking for a dose of joy with the cast of one of the best family comedies of all-time, writer/director Nancy Meyers has delivered it with a reunion of the original cast of Father of the Bride. That’s right, Steve Martin, Diane Keaton, Kieran Culkin, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, and George Newbern are all back, and this time it’s Matty (Culkin) taking the spotlight with a big announcement, and some special guests flesh out the two youngest members of the Banks family.
