'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 2' & Sequels Filmed Concurrently: Sigourney Weaver

Avatar 2, 3, 4 to be filmed concurrently. [Photo: Sigourney Weaver in Avatar.] Audiences are clamoring for original fare, we all know that. They want new plots, new characters, new situations. That's why movies such as The Avengers, Men in Black III, and Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted have bombed at the worldwide box office. Joss Whedon's The Avengers has taken in a miserable $1.437 billion; Will Smith / Tommy Lee Jones' Men in Black 3 a paltry $578.33m; and Madagascar 3 a truly disgraceful $368.54 million after 17 days. That's why I think James Cameron is taking on a big risk by proceeding with Avatar 2 next fall. Avatar 2, 3, 4 shooting in the fall Let me rephrase […]

Kristen Stewart & Taylor Lautner: Tough Snow White & Thriller Premiere + Alleged 'Twilight' Hacker

You don't want to mess with her: Kristen Stewart is tough Snow White Sept. 30, 11: Is that Marie Falconetti? Ingrid Bergman? Michèle Morgan? Jean Seberg? Hedy Lamarr? Florence Carrez? Nope. Heck, that's not even Joan of Arc – but Kristen Stewart (via Just Jared) as none other than famous apple-eater Snow White while filming Snow White and the Huntsman. Obviously, Stewart's Snow White will have very little in common with the Disney-ified fairy tale princess we all know. Directed by feature-film first-timer Rupert Sanders, and written by Evan Daugherty (with rewrites by Hossein Amini and Evan Spiliotopoulos), Snow White and the Huntsman follows Snow White (Kristen Stewart) and the Huntsman (Thor's Chris Hemsworth) as they flee from bounty hunters […]

'Avatar' DVD Breaks Record

Avatar sold 3.2 million DVD (including Blu-ray) copies on its first day out (not including rentals), last Thursday, according to figures provided by 20th Century Fox (via Deadline.com).

James Cameron's 3D sci-fier – on DVD in plain old HD 2D – broke The Dark Knight's record for Blu-ray sales: 600K copies for TDK vs. 1.2 million for Avatar. However, The Dark Knight holds the record for “old-format” DVD sales: 2.1 million copies vs. Avatar's 2 million.
