James Cameron talks Avatar sequels, Terminator, Aliens, and a whole lot more

This past weekend, director James Cameron did a Reddit AMA and covered the gamut in terms of Q&A, ranging from the current state of the AVATAR sequels, his thoughts on the latest TERMINATOR films (and reboot), the ALIEN films (post ALIENS), what happened to TRUE LIES 2, the best movie he's seen in theaters recently, his thoughts on 3D being used for all movies, and he would win...

Ridley Scott's Biblical epic Exodus gets a title change

Ridley Scott 's epic Bible movie EXODUS already has a stellar cast that includes Christian Bale , Ben Kingsley , Sigourney Weaver , Aaron Paul , Joel Edgerton , and John Turturro which puts it close to the all-star cast of the 1960 film of the same name. While that Paul Newman movie was centered on the formation of the state of Israel in 1948, the titles could be confusing for...

Face Off: Predator military team vs. Aliens Colonial Marines

Last week's Face-Off column delved into a pair of futuristic societies from a couple of prominent sci-fi/action movies, and most of you agreed that MINORITY REPORT offered a more intriguing, thoughtful and plausible future over the explosive DEMOLITION MAN. This weekend, Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to screen in SABOTAGE , leading a specialized squad of capable badasses. He's no...

The Good, The Bad & The Badass: Harold Ramis

Last week, we took a look at the topsy-turvy career of badass extraordinaire Liam Neeson . This week, we’re switching gears to examine the career of a late comedy-icon who often worked behind the scenes, but through it all remained one of the defining figures in modern big-screen comedy. Harold Ramis A few weeks ago, I wrote a column about the...

Sad news today, as writer, actor, and director Harold Ramis has died at the age of 69, due to complications of autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels. Ramis had been quietly battling the disease for years. He is survived by his wife, Erica Mann Ramis, daughter Violet Stiel, sons Julian and Daniel Ramis, and two grandchildren....

James Cameron says he is "still in the early stages" with Avatar sequels

The first of three planned sequels to 2009's AVATAR won't hit theaters until 2016, so we're going to be getting a lot of these kind of updates from James Cameron . In an interview with RTL , the director talked about his progress on the AVATAR sequels. "We're still in the early stages. Right now we're developing the software. I'm writing the...

C'mon, Hollywood: Don't let The Expendabelles become a generic chick flick!

Not too long ago, there was an announcement of an all female version of THE EXPENDABLES hitting theaters, called THE EXPENDABELLES , which I personally thought sounded supremely awesome. While we've gotten films like UNDERWORLD , RESIDENT EVIL and KILL BILL featuring women kicking ass and taking names, this would be the first time a movie had so many gals doing that at the same...

Could Stay Puft be any cuter?! You know you want it! Personally, I want the whole set. How could you possibly choose between them? You've got: Egon, Venkman, Ray, Slimer, and Stay Puft. Slimer is...

I Want That: LEGO Ghostbusters!

I discoverd a lot about LEGO in pursuing this story and one of those things was the reinforcement that LEGO collectors don't f*ck around. Nor does LEGO, for that matter, as they take these little plastic bricks very serious. Case in point is LEGO cussoo , a contest of sorts that LEGO holds quarterly, where they have folks vote on fan submissions of LEGO sets. Once a particular set ...

Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are officially back for Avatar sequels

Here's a big surprise to no one. Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana are back for the AVATAR sequels. The films will be shot back to back which made for a bigger commitment for the actors to sign on for. It's not simply a trilogy, it's a quad. Stephen Lang was already locked on to reprise his role as the baddie, Miles Quaritch. Cameron will be assissted by not one but three...

Sega's Alien: Isolation video game is the closest thing to an direct sequel to Ridley Scott's 1979 film

When PROMETHEUS hit theaters last year, many looking for a true follow-up to ALIEN were disappointed with a very different type of sci-fi movie from Ridley Scott . While I really enjoyed PROMETHEUS, I too have been holding out hope for a direct ALIEN sequel that would capture the same horror that the 1979 film engineered. A movie like that may not be coming soon but it appears the new...
