Director James Cameron recently revealed that production on Avatar 2 is 100% complete in both live-action and motion capture filming, and Avatar 3 wasn’t too far behind. If you’re wondering what’s taking so damn long, it might be more than just the extensive post-production process and development of state-of-the-art technology. Because according to Sigourney Weaver, preparation for the shoot required cast members to train with “elite military divers” in order to allow them to hold their breath underwater for as much as six minutes, so Cameron could maximize the amount of footage he could capture in a single take.

Alita: Battle Angel, a movie that’s been on Blu-ray and digital since July 2019, is headed back to theaters in the midst of a deadly pandemic. Why? Who’s to say, really? But while the film was not a hit in the U.S., it did well overseas and it’s developed a steady fan following. This could all be a test: if Alita does well in re-release, perhaps a sequel will be greenlit. Or it could just be an attempt to fill the void at the box office right now since so many movies have been pushed due to the coronavirus.

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 »
Tyler Stout is responsible for some of the most coveted pieces in the pop culture art scene.

But every now and then, we’re lucky enough to be on an even playing field when Tyler Stout releases a new poster, and that has happened today with a new print for James Cameron’s The Terminator. Check out the Tyler Stout Terminator poster in all its detailed glory below. Read More »

You may have noticed that Avatar 2 producer Jon Landau has been regularly posting set photos from director James Cameron‘s follow-up movies. You’ve probably also noticed that they haven’t exactly been the most thrilling images – it’s largely been shots of people standing inside sound stages around pools. But today, Landau has published an Avatar 2 performance capture photo of one of the actors totally submerged underwater, and it finally provides a significant hint at what we’ll see when (if?) the movie arrives late next year.

Never doubt James Cameron. That’s a lesson Hollywood has had to learn time and time again, and even though I’m legitimately fascinated to see how many people will still care about the Avatar universe more than a decade after the original movie became the highest-grossing film of all time, history has proven that Cameron knows how to silence the haters better than any other writer/director in the modern era.
But for the love of the Eywa, can we get some more interesting Avatar 2 set photos, please? Producer Jon Landau has shared another behind the scenes shot, and at least we have a better idea about when this one was taken.
