James Cameron Finally Starts Shooting AVATAR 2 This Week!


James Cameron has been in pre-production on his Avatar sequels for years! It's been so long, and the release dates kept being pushed back that it never seemed like the movies were never going to happen. Well, this week Avatar 2 officially starts shooting.

The film will feature the return of Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Joel David Moore, Matt GeraldSigourney Weaver, and Stephen Lang, who will be back as the main villain in all four Avatar sequels. When previously talking about that, Cameron said:

“The interesting conceit of the ‘Avatar’ sequels is it’s pretty much the same characters. There are new characters and a lot of new settings and creatures, so I’m taking characters you know and putting them in unfamiliar places and moving them on this greater journey. But it’s not a whole bunch of new characters every time. There’s not a new villain every time, which is interesting. Same guy. Same motherf*cker through all four movies. He is so good and he just gets better. I know Stephen Lang is gonna knock this out of the park.”

We all know that Cameron has got some epic ground-breaking plans for these Avatar sequels. I'm actually kind of excited to see what he ends up creating for the fans. 

The current release dates for the upcoming sequels are as follows: Avatar 2 will hit theaters on December 18, 2020, Avatar 3 will be released on December 17, 2021, Avatar 4 opens on December 20, 2024, and Avatar 5 is scheduled to be released on December 19, 2025.

The first film, which was released in 2009, still holds the record for the highest grossing movie of all time with over 2.7 billion in worldwide box office grosses. Do you think this first sequel will break that? Are you excited about the upcoming Avatar sequels?

EDGE OF TOMORROW Director Doug Liman Likes His Sequel Idea MORE Than the Original Film


While chatting with Yahoo! Movies about his upcoming film American Made, director Doug Liman dropped some interesting tidbits about the Edge Of Tomorrow sequel, Live Die Repeat and Repeat. That is the tentative title for the sequel to the movie that starred 3x Academy Award-nominated superstar Tom Cruise and Golden Globe-winner Emily Blunt.

Liman says that the sequel's unofficial title originates from his intended title for the first film: Live Die Repeat. But back then the studio didn't agree with his vision and wanted the safer and studio-friendly Edge of Tomorrow. Liman said, “That was an epic war between me and Warner Bros. that I lost.” However, Liman did eventually and unofficially when the studio decided to rebrand the film on home video, releasing it on Blu-ray/DVD with a much larger emphasis on the film's "Live. Die. Repeat." tagline.

Through Liman's career he has never returned for a sequel and admits he is hesitant about returning for this one, but it looks like Cruise's rough story idea - combined with unbelievable fan support - really got his wheels turning.

“Normally there are financial decisions behind making a sequel, but with this, it was just about us coming up with a story. Really, it’s not a world I was eager to go back to, because dealing with time travel can make your head hurt. But there was so much affection from fans of the movie — more than any of my other movies! — that Tom and I felt that we owed it to ourselves to at least think about what a sequel could be.”

Liman teases that the movie will pick up a little further than we might have expected: 

"It picks up where the last one left off, but then we go backwards in time. I love it way more than the story of the original film." 

It will be an interesting film if Liman turns the clock back even further than he did in the first movie. You may remember, Cruise was pretty harmless and scared in the beginning and only after dying over and over again, did he become a battle-hardened warrior.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Liman does with this film. What do you guys think? What would you like to see?

A Man Haunted By a Tragic Event Turns to Time-Travel to Try and Fix Things in This Great Sci-Fi Short CRADLE

DUST has released a fantastic new sci-fi short film for you to watch called Cradle. The movie centers on a man who is haunted by his tragic past. He returns to the scene of his where this terrible event took place and he's determined to try to travel back in time to fix things. It's an inventive short where less is more. Here's the synopsis that came with the short.

A man (Dante Basco) returns to the scene of a terrible crime where he lost everything, determined to face his demons and rewrite a little bit of history.
A young man walks in to a dingy and seemingly abandoned building with nothing but a chair, a notebook and a backpack of supplies. He looks like he's been walking forever. After looking over the bleak surroundings, he sets up his chair in the middle of the room and begins to prepare himself.
After downing a large amount of food and water, he reaches into his pocket and retrieves a notebook. The notebook is filled from cover to cover with hand-drawn symbols, equations and notes. Near the end of the book are several pages containing patches, each with a hand-drawn value next to them.
The young man takes a patch with the value of '1' written next to it and applies it to his neck. He takes a deep breath, closes his eyes and then...

I won't give anything away, but I will say that even though the story is vague, it has a great satisfying ending! Also if the name Dante Basco sounds familiar to you, it's because it's the guy who played Rufio in Hook! Enjoy the film!

To Get a Pure Reaction of Terror From the Kids of IT, They Were Kept From Seeing Pennywise Until They Shot The Projector Scene

We've all heard the story of how Steven Spielberg purposely didn't show the young cast One-Eyed Willy's pirate ship until the day they shot the scene where they slid through the tunnels and into the water. When they popped up out of the water that was the first time they had seen the ship. The reaction of surprise and wonder on their faces was real and pure.

Well, director Andy Muschietti wanted the same kind of pure reaction from the kids who starred in IT when they first see Pennywise the Clown. Only he wasn't going for awe and wonder. No. He was looking for that real and pure fear and terror!

A new featurette for the film was released below and it focuses on Bill Skarsgard‘s unpredictable performance in the new film adaptation of Stephen King's IT. The filmmakers explain how they kept the kids from seeing Skarsgard's Pennywise The Clown, until the day that they shot the terrifying projector scene. The look of terror on those kid's faces are real, and many of them talk about what their experiences were like working with Skarsgard on the film. They never knew what he was going to do and it freaked them out!

Skarsgard was freakin' awesome as Pennywise! I couldn't have asked for a better actor to take on the role. Hell, he even got King's seal of approval.

Possible Story Details Surface For Channing Tatum’s GAMBIT Movie – “The Oceans 11 of the Comic Book Genre”


As you all know, Channing Tatum's Gambit movie has gone through some hard times. It's been in development hell for awhile, but according to Tatum, it's all been for the better of the development of the film. The movie is now said to be inspired more by what Deadpool and Logan have done.

I've been curious to know what direction they are going to take the story and now we might have an idea of what is being planned for the film. Splash Page claims to have details on a plot outline for the film, and they describe it as "the Oceans 11 of the comic book genre". They also say that the movie will include mutants such as Rictor, Fifolet, Dani Moonstar, Multiple Man, Marrow, and a "blue X-Men regular", which could be Mystique, Beast, or Nightcrawler. Here's the plot summary that report shared:

Remy Lebeau (Channing Tatum) is on trial in New-Orleans. He’s considered a huge security risk. We flashback to almost 25 years before. Master thief Luke Lebeau runs into eight-year-old Gambit while doing a heist. Impressed by his skills, he offers to take the mutant orphan under his wings. Raised alongside other strays he calls “cousins”, the teenage Gambit becomes the superstar of the Thief Guild. He encounters Bella Donna Boudreaux while on the run from the police. Sparks immediately fly since Bella is also a fellow mutant. Their love is directly prohibited by both families since the Boudreaux are sworn enemies of the Lebeau clan. Deciding to unite the two sides, Remy offers to have the two clans team up on a HUGE heist to profit both families. Of course, the whole plan goes awry, and in the chaos, Maryanne Boudreaux shoots and kill Luke Lebeau.

We jump to 10 years later; Gambit is hired to do a job in Paris to steal something from the Louvre Museum. It was apparently a test job to see if he still has it. His mysterious employer is revealed to be Nathaniel Essex a.k.a. Mr. Sinister. He offers Gambit 40 million to recover a mysterious trunk that was stolen by the Boudreaux clan. It will be auctioned off during the yearly Thieves Ball where all the criminal organizations in the world meet up. It uses New Orleans’ Mardi Gras celebrations as a cover. Gambit decides to enlist a crew of mutants to pull off this seemingly impossible heist…

That sounds like it could be fun! I would love to see a Gambit heist film! This info is in line with a comment that producer Simon Kinberg made about the film a couple years ago. He described it as a sexy heist film saying:

“I mean Deadpool obviously has a very different, almost antithetical tone to the mainline X-Men movies. The X-Men movies are dramatic and almost operatic, whereas Deadpool is irreverent and hysterical and sort of a dirty R-rated comedy in many ways. And Gambit will have its own different flavor and tone to it, will be more of like a heist movie and a sexy thriller in a way.”

It's also said the film will make reference to the films X-Men: Days of Future Past and X-Men: Apocalypse. If that's true, ti will be interesting to see how exactly they fit Gambit in with the current X-Men movie universe. 

I hope these plot details are legit because it sounds like a Gambit movie I'd want to see! Obviously, we need to treat it as a rumor for now and even if it is true, things could easily change between now and the time the film goes into development. What do you think about the possible direction that the film could go?

WALKING DEAD Actor Describes Season 8 as a Schwarzenegger Vs. Stallone Film

The Walking Dead is about to get a lot more action-packed in its eighth season, that's according to series regular Seth Gilliam who is comparing the upcoming season to "a Schwarzenegger versus Stallone action thing from the ’80s." Gilliam:

"I think there are, like, 10 explosions an episode. Every time you turn around, somebody’s shooting something or blowing something up. There’s some serious action that I don’t think we’ve seen on television since The A-Team went off the air.”

The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman says the coming season will be "a more fast-paced season, a more action-packed season" focusing on momentum and seven seasons worth of payoffs. Dwight actor Austin Amelio told Entertainment Weekly:

“It’s a f—king in-your-face action-packed IV of adrenaline. Season 7 was the ramp-up and now this is the blastoff. The stuff that’s happening is insane!”

For most Walking Dead fans Season 7 was one of the most disappointing of the hit zombie drama.  Now that Rick, Maggie, Ezekiel and their respective communities have teamed up to make their first strike against their Negan's clan, The Walking Dead will most likely see the show become what it used to be.

The Walking Dead returns to AMC on October 22.

New HAN SOLO Photos From Ron Howard Tease “Desperate and Dangerous Times”


Ron Howard has shared a couple new photos from the set Lucasfilm's untitled Han Solo film. Each of the dusty and hazy photos come with the caption: "Shooting a scene about desperate and dangerous times in the Galaxy." 

Fans are speculating about all kinds of things that they say they are seeing in the photos. One fan says that they see Boba Fett, other claims that there are AT-AT parts and Stormtroopers. There's also talk that the scene Howard is shooting here takes place on the planet of Kessel, which the director teased last week, so there's a good chance that might actually be the case. Another image shows an explosion in the distance.

You can look at the photos below. Look 'em over and see if you can spot anything cool or interesting!

The Han Solo movie stars Alden Ehrenreich, Donald Glover, Emilia Clarke, Woody Harrelson, Paul Bettany, Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Thandie Newton. It's set to be released on May 25, 2018.
