Earlier this month, Paramount debuted a new Terminator Genisys preview where original Terminator director James Cameron praised the new film. Today, the studio has released two new TV spots, one of which features a new quote from the director where he states that the franchise has been "reinvigorated," the twist is "more than you expected" and that "you're going to love this movie." We also get new footage of Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Guardian fighting another version of himself and more of John Connor's (Jason Clarke) new powers as a cyborg.
When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future...Read More
James Cameron has long considered The Terminator franchise something that is completely out of his hands. Despite the fact that he created the popular sci-fi property, which spawned four sequels and a TV series, he's never seemed too interested in the title since handing over the reigns after the extremely popular and well-received Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 1991. Many people were unhappy with Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, the first movie he didn't direct. And while Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles certainly has its fans, no one seemed to like 2009's Terminator Salvation at all. This summer we're getting the 5th movie, Terminator Genisys, and it sets out to reboot the movie's jagged timeline. Today, Yahoo released a video with James Cameron giving his honest reaction to Terminator Genisys.
James Cameron isn't someone who throws praise lightly. He is often very critical, and is known to give his honest opinion. So we can get a little excited about his reaction here. He praises Terminator Genisys, explaining that he had absolutely nothing to do with it. He's just a fan boy watching a movie. The best part comes when he calls this new installment the real Terminator 3, giving it his full blessing.Read More
The director enlisted the help of several new writers to work on the sequel scripts with him. Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) are writing Avatar 2, with Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds) working on Avatar 3 and Shane Salerno writing Avatar 4. This is the first we're hearing about a fifth Avatar script, although it isn't known if James Cameron wrote this himself, or if he brought some of the aforementioned writers to work on Avatar 5. However, it seems that the filmmaker is adamant about making just three sequels, so we'll have to wait and see what happens.
Production is expected to start later this year, with all three movies expected to be shot back-to-back. Do you think there should be a fifth Avatar movie? Or do you think three is already too much? Let us know what you think below, and stay tuned for more on the Avatar sequels.Read More

Jennifer Lawrence is joining forces with her Hunger Games: Catching Fire director Francis Lawrence and producer James Cameron on The Dive for 20th Century Fox. The project is based on the true story of free divers Francisco "Pipin" Ferraras and his wife Audrey Mestre, who both tried to go as deep into the ocean as possible on just a single breath of air. Jennifer Lawrence is playing Audrey Mestre, who passed away in 2002 while trying to break her world record of diving 557.7 feet underwater. Her husband Francisco "Pipin" Ferraras dove to that same depth in tribute to his late wife, a dive which was filmed by James Cameron.
Way back in 2006, James Cameron actually planned on directing this movie himself, working from a script from his Avatar co-writer Laeta Kalogridis. In March 2012, Martin Campbell (Casino Royale, Green Lantern) was attached to direct, but the project never got off the ground. J. Michael Straczynski (Thor) wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay.Read More
As long expect, we won't be getting the first Avatar sequel on its originally scheduled release date as promised. Due to the ambitious nature of the project, director James Cameron has pushed the movie back by a year, so that additional work can be done on the screenplay. We were supposed to see Avatar 2 hit screens Christmas 2016. Now, we won't see it until December of 2017, which sets up Avatar 3 for 2018 and Avatar 4 for 2019.
James Cameron spoke from New Zealand, where he shot the original Avatar, and plans to shoot the sequels as well. 20th Century Fox is reportedly giving the director more time due to the amount of money they are pouring into the project. The hope is that James Cameron has the same game-changing impact that Peter Jackson did when he shot three Lord of the Rings and Hobbit sequels back-to-back.Read More
