Avatar Logo

The /Film staff has a bit of a running joke when it comes to Avatar 2 news: is the publicity team going out their way to release only the most boring images imaginable? But that’s the problem you face when the world of a film is largely digital and won’t be ready for primetime until long after the cameras have finished rolling. The other problem is that director James Cameron will hunt us down and hurt us if we joke too much.

Naturally, this means just about every glimpse of the upcoming sequel has involved puny human characters just standing around, or other actors wearing skintight motion capture suits that will eventually help transform them into alien warriors. Today’s new image is the former: here’s your first look at Edie Falco‘s new character, General Ardmore, who certainly sounds like she’s going to be a villain of some kind.

avatar sequels cast edie falco

The cast of the Avatar sequels just got a major upgrade. Edie Falco, of The Sopranos and Nurse Jackie fame, will head to Pandora as new character General Ardmore. Falco is a phenomenal actress, and her presence in James Cameron‘s CGI-enhanced world is surely welcomed. It’s not clear which of the sequels Falco will be appearing in – both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 have wrapped filming with the main cast, and while Avatar 4 and Avatar 5 are both greenlit, neither have begun filming yet, as Cameron and company are waiting to see if 2 and 3 will make a splash at the box office.

Landline trailer

Director Gillian Robespierre’s Obvious Child was such a pleasant surprise for a lot of people back in 2014 that news she was reuniting with star Jenny Slate for a new movie called Landline was greeted with cheers. Amazon Studios picked up the film and has debuted the first trailer for the dramedy, which is set in 1995 and focuses on a dysfunctional family with parents played by John Turturro and Edie Falco. But even with a cast made up of industry vets, it sounds like the film’s largely unknown youngest cast member may be the one who steals the movie.

Obvious Child

The delightful Obvious Child came seemingly out of nowhere in 2014 to win us over. In our defense, it was the first-ever feature by director Gillian Robespierre, and the first screenwriting credit for Elisabeth Holm, and star Jenny Slate hadn’t yet established herself as a movie star. But now that we’ve all seen and loved Obvious Child, there’s no chance of the gang’s next team-up flying so far under the radar.

Slate is set to star in Robespierre’s next directorial effort, Landline, to be written by Robespierre and Holm. As the title suggests, Landline is a period piece — specifically, an ensemble comedy set in 1995. John TurturroEdie FalcoJay Duplass, and newcomer Abby Quinn are also among the cast.  Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

For many, actors like Christopher Walken and John Turturro could be considered Gods. We remember their performances in films like The Deer Hunter or The Big Lebowski and feel like a higher power came down and blessed them with gifts not worthy of the common man. It seems fitting then that they, along with a slew of other awesome actors, will now actually be playing Gods in Gods Behaving Badly, a film adaptation of the 2007 best-seller by Marie Phillips.

Joining Walken and Turturro as a group of Greek Gods living together in a New York City brownstone are Sharon Stone, Oliver Platt, Edie Falco, Phylicia Rashad, Rosie Perez, Nelsan Ellis, Gideon Glick and Henry Zebrowski. They then cross paths with a mortal couple played by Alicia Silverstone and Ebon Moss-Bachrach. Read more about the story after the jump. Read More »
