avatar sequels news

James Cameron is hellbent on making Avatar sequels until the sun burns out in the sky, and day by day, more info on the films arrives. Last year, we learned what the possible titles of the films would be, and the titles…were a bit weird. But as it turns out, they are indeed real – for now, at least. On top of that, it’s recently been revealed that cast member Kate Winslet held her breath underwater for a very long time, and that live-action filming on the sequels picks up this spring.

Saoirse Ronan Wes Anderson

Promise Saoirse Ronan a corset, or at least a chance to wear a fancy hat, and you’ve got her booked for your next period drama. The Mary Queen of Scots actress is making a habit out of starring in prestigious historical dramas, but with casts and directors like these, you have to at least be vaguely interested.

Four years after The Grand Budapest HotelSaoirse Ronan is reuniting with director Wes Anderson for his 10th feature film, The French Dispatch. But while she’ll be reuniting with a few familiar faces on the ensemble movie, Ronan will be working for the first time with Kate Winslet on another high-profile project, a romance-drama titled Ammonite. And yes, both of them will be period dramas.

The breakfast Club Criterion Blu-ray

(Welcome to Not Dead Yet, a feature dedicated to what’s new on Blu-ray and what special features you should be excited about. Because yes, some of us still like to own physical copies of our movies.)

Happy New Year! 2018 is just getting started – there’s going to be a whole slew of exciting new Blu-ray titles to hit shelves this year. But first, here are some so-so films!

What we mostly have here are what I’d like to think of as holiday leftovers – films that weren’t big enough to hit stores as part of the holiday shopping rush. That doesn’t mean there’s nothing of value here. In fact, there are some surprisingly good titles, including a Jackie Chan movie that rises above its premise, a Watergate-based drama, a survivalist film where Kate Winslet and Idris Elba crash a plane and then get sexy, and more. There’s also a surprisingly controversial new release from The Criterion Collection. Here are the new Blu-ray releases you should check out this week.

Avatar sequels

Remember Avatar? You probably do, because the film was a Titanic-sized hit for director James Cameron, taking in a worldwide box-office gross of over $2.7 billion, thus making it the highest-grossing film of all time. Yet despite this blockbuster status, Avatar seems curiously removed from the public consciousness. That’ll change soon, as Cameron is set to unleash four Avatar sequels upon the world. Maybe.

In a new interview, Cameron provides an update on his Avatar sequels, and claims that Avatar 4 and 5 are still not a sure thing. Cameron also reveals who Kate Winslet will be playing in the films, so read on to find out.

wonder wheel trailer

Woody Allen‘s love affair with a younger, sprightly streaming service continues with Wonder Wheel, the divisive auteur’s new film under Amazon Studios.

Returning to his Northeastern roots after flitting about in Hollywood, Rome, and Paris with his past few films, Wonder Wheel takes place in 1950s Coney Island — a familiar setting in which Allen grew up. But populating Wonder Wheel are a few unfamiliar faces to the Allen repertoire: Wonder Wheel stars Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Jim Belushi, and Juno Temple, all first-time collaborators with Allen.

the mountain between us trailer

Despite a vague title that sounds somewhat like a romantic-comedy, Kate Winslet and Idris Elba aren’t here to romance each other in The Mountain Between Us (though I would watch that rom-com).

The two of them play strangers whose plane crashes on a desolate Colorado mountaintop and must fight to survive against the freezing elements, wild animals, and their own attraction to each other — it was inevitable, they are the most beautiful people in the world — in the recently released official trailer.
