James Cameron Claims Avatar Sequels Will Make You “Sh*t Yourself”

Posted by Ben Huber on Nov 28, 2014 in Cinema


His own words! In a recent interview with Empire Magazine, Cameron continued to hyped up his oncoming Avatar sequels (all three of them, which will be filmed simultaneously), but this time went above and beyond: “I can tell you one thing about them. They’re gonna be bitchin’. You will shit yourself with your mouth wide open.” Oh, well, alright. If you say so! He also spoke about higher frame rates for film, and confirmed he’d be filming in 48 frames per second (there was speculation that he’d film in 60 or 120). You can thank Peter Jackson for that, I assume. You can read the rest of the details here. Read more…

Avatar 2 and 3 Are Officially On Their Way

Posted by Michael Sacco on Oct 31, 2010 in Cinema


Great news for the astronomical number of you out there who saw (and liked) James Cameron’s Avatar — Cameron has officially signed on for two more films set in the Avatar universe. Not terribly surprising, given that the film grossed almost $3 billion worldwide, but good news nonetheless. Cameron, who’s currently working on At the Mountains of Madness with Guillermo Del Toro, will begin writing screenplays for the two sequels shortly, and he’ll decide whether or not to film them back-to-back once that task is complete.  Regardless of the filming schedule, the expected release dates for Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 are 2014 and 2015, respectively.

A Conversation with Cameron

Posted by Michael Pinto on Mar 11, 2010 in Cinema

You know it’s funny I’ve never have been too crazy about James Cameron as a director, however listening to this very relaxed interview with him was quite energizing and inspiring. It’s wonderful to hear not just about his creative process — but also his take on Hollywood then copying everything (his example is the 3D craze which he inspired). And as much as I wasn’t crazy about Avatar I almost felt sorry for Cameron watching the Oscars because you could sense not just a level of insecurity and slight hostility to his technical skills, but also even the idea that a science fiction film might get best picture. So even with the success of his box office, it gave me a real sympathy seeing him within the Hollywood hierarchy.

Why George Lucas is More Original Than James Cameron

James Cameron and Geroge Lucas

Recently while a good friend was telling me about the advantages of seeing Avatar in 3D IMAX over just plain 3D I couldn’t help but mention how much I hated “the plot” of the film. My friend then challenged me that while the twists-and-turns of the Na’vi may have been overly predictable that in fact the first Star Wars film was just as telegraphed. Read more…
