'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' NOT to Become All-Time Worldwide Blockbuster?

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' with Oscar Isaac: Poe Dameron and pals NOT to become all-time box office champs? 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' NOT to become worldwide top-grossing movie of all time? Dec. 21, '15, update: J.J. Abrams' futuristic adventure movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens was the most eagerly awaited film release since … let's see … Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider made out in Bernardo Bertolucci's Last Tango in Paris back in the early '70s, destroying families, lives, and whole nations. Or perhaps, since Luis Buñuel's Viridiana created a furor at the Cannes Film Festival back in 1961, leaving audiences the world over desperate for a look at the movie condemned by both the Spanish military and […]

'Jurassic World' Box Office: Truly Beating 'The Avengers' Worldwide and Domestically?

'Jurassic World' velociraptor kicks Iron Man ass at worldwide box office. 'Jurassic World' officially surpasses 'The Avengers' at worldwide box office Directed by Colin Trevorrow; starring Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Vincent D'Onofrio; and co-executive-produced by Steven Spielberg, Jurassic World has officially become the third biggest worldwide box office hit in history. The Jurassic Park sequel – or reboot, as it's basically the same story with a slightly different twist – has surpassed Marvel's Joss Whedon-directed all-star superhero flick The Avengers, which broke box office records back in 2012. Of course, “officially” just ain't what it used to be – like, in the days before The Fall. So you wisely ask, “But which movie has actually sold the most […]

'Avatar 2' and Sequels Release Dates

'Avatar 2' and follow-up sequels' release dates revealed (image: Na'vi Sam Worthington in 'Avatar') Avatar, James Cameron's late 2009 (and early 2010) blockbuster that spearheaded the (currently dwindling) popularity of 3D movies, will have three sequels. Why exactly that has come as a surprise revelation for some is unclear. Sigourney Weaver, who for quite a while has been scheduled to return for the Avatar sequels, had already mentioned that there would be three movies, filmed concurrently much like Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Anyhow, James Cameron and Avatar distributor 20th Century Fox have announced that the three sequels will be released as follows: Avatar 2 (not to be confused with Avatar: The Last Airbender […]

'Avatar' Most Pirated Movie Ever (Also Biggest Modern Blockbuster, Year's Biggest DVD Seller)

James Cameron's Avatar Avatar is the most pirated movie of all time according to the website TorrentFreak. Citing statistics “gathered from public BitTorrent trackers, dating back to early 2006,” Avatar was downloaded an estimated 21 million times. James Cameron's environmentally conscious sci-fier, which went on to gross $2.78 billion at the worldwide box office, was followed by two other major worldwide blockbusters: Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight and Michael Bay's Transformers, both downloaded an estimated 19 million times. Next in line were Nolan's Inception (18m) and Todd Phillips' The Hangover (17m). Rounding out the top ten were J.J.

James Cameron Pandora Beats Skynet, Ryan Reynolds Bizarre 'Green Lantern' Pic

Christian Bale in McG's Terminator: Salvation “Skynet was supposed to go operational tonight,” James Cameron tweeted a few hours ago. “Instead of machines taking over, we have the very real threat of global warming.” In other words, Avatar's Pandora is the thing, says the Titanic filmmaker, who was recently in Brazil to protest the building of a gigantic (and, according to environmentalists, ecologically catastrophic) dam in the Amazon. Anyhow, I had no idea what the hell “Skynet” was. After a little research, I discovered that it's the name of the monstrous computer network that gains consciousness at 8:11 p.m. on April 19, '11, in the Fox TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. But not to worry; this computer network […]

'Little Fockers' vs. 'True Grit': The Dumber the Better? Not Necessarily

Jessica Alba in 'Little Fockers': 'Fantastic Four' actress displays her face and figure in critically lambasted box office hit. 'Little Fockers' tops domestic box office: Critically panned & crowd-pleasing comedy kickstarts the New Year in lowbrow style Jan. 3 '11 update: One of the most critically lambasted 2010 releases, Paul Weitz's Little Fockers was the no. 1 movie at the U.S. and Canada box office on the very first weekend of 2011 (Dec. 31 '10–Jan. 2 '11). Dumb comedies – e.g., Grown Ups and Jackass 3D – tend to fare well on weekends, when apparently families and friends decide to spend some quality time together at the movies. According to final figures found at Boxofficemojo.com, Little Fockers drew in $25.76 […]
