If you haven’t gotten around to seeing The Predator yet, which is now available on home video, you should know that it has a totally insane ending that sets the stage for a crazy sequel. But the ending was almost even more ludicrous than the one that ended up in theaters, and it would have brought the Predator franchise back around to its rivalry with the Alien franchise.
UPDATE: Another alternate ending would have brought back another character from the Alien universe as well. We’ve added details about that in our original story below.

We’re almost a decade removed from the record-breaking box office success of James Cameron‘s Avatar, and we’re still years away from seeing if the long-gestating Avatar 2 will reignite audiences’ interest in the fictional world of Pandora. It’ll be even longer than that before we see Avatar 4 and 5, but despite Cameron’s assertion that those planned sequels aren’t sure bets, production is apparently already underway. And the franchise has already made at least one huge improvement: Cameron and his team have ditched the Papyrus font they used in the first movie.
In a new interview, Avatar star Sigourney Weaver says she’s “busy” working on those sequels now. She also talks a little about the new character she’s playing, her experience filming Avatar 2 and 3, and whether or not we’ll ever see Alien 5 directed by Chappie filmmaker Neill Blomkamp. Read Weaver’s quotes and take a look at the new Papyrus-free Avatar logo below. Read More »

James Cameron had great success converting Titanic to 3D. When it came out in 2012, it made $67 million its opening weekend in China and went on to accumulate over $200 million worldwide. Cameron’s next 3D venture, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, opens in theaters soon. If it’s even a smidge as profitable as Titanic 3D, maybe Cameron will make Aliens 3D.
Below, the director talks Aliens 3D and shares his opinion on this summer’s Alien: Covenant.

Last month, director Neill Blomkamp officially revealed his Oats Studios project, a series of short films that would be released for free on YouTube and Steam (a wildly popular platform for PC games). The first of those shorts, titled Rakka, is online and you watch it right now.
As you’d expect from a film directed by the man behind District 9, Elysium, and Chappie, this short is about as NSFW as you can get…unless your workplace is perfectly fine with harsh language and extreme violence.
