The Channing Tatum ‘Gambit’ Movie Was Supposed to Feature X-Men Villain Mister Sinister

Remember the Gambit movie? Channing Tatum was all set to star as the Cajun mutant (even getting an atrocious haircut for the role) in a buzzy X-Men solo spin-off movie that went through numerous directors and writers before falling into oblivion after the Disney-Fox merger. Doug Liman was the last director to be attached to the film before he hammered the last nail in its coffin with an unforgiving, “It’s done.” But as recently as 2016, Gambit wasn’t done. X-Men: Apocalypse writer and Dark Phoe...

‘Planet of the Apes’ Update: New Sequel Could Begin Virtual Production Soon, Says Director Wes Ball

When word came out that The Maze Runner director Wes Ball would be directing a new Planet of the Apes movie for 20th Century Studios, there was some initial confusion about whether or not it would be another reboot or be a continuation of the story that played out over the most recent Apes trilogy. Ball quickly put that to rest, saying “Caesar’s legacy will continue,” and now he’s spoken a bit more about what he hopes to achieve with the upcoming sequel. Speaking with Discussing Film, Ball e...

David Ayer’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Director’s Cut “Would Be Easy to Complete,” Josh Trank Not Interested in ‘Fantastic Four’ Director’s Cut

This is the world we live in now: if you are loud enough about demanding a director’s cut on Twitter, it will come. After the mythic Snyder Cut earned its triumphant victory with an HBO Max release in 2021, the floodgates have opened for directors who want their original visions to be shown to rabid fans. The latest filmmaker to join the director’s cut train is David Ayer, whose 2016 comic book film Suicide Squad was famously subjected to long reshoots and re-edits. Ayer revealed that is “Ayer ...

For director Josh Boone and all the people involved with Fox’s superhero film The New Mutants, the past few years must have felt like they were caught in an episode of The Twilight Zone.

New ‘Avatar 2’ Image Shows Off the Underwater Motion-Capture Process

The first Avatar pushed the limits of 3D, and the second will seek to do the same with motion-capture technology. Avatar 2 is set to hit theaters more than a decade after James Cameron’s record-setting blockbuster, a delay that is partially due to the cutting-edge motion-capture technology that Cameron developed to depict a new underwater world. Now, a new behind-the-scenes Avatar 2 image has been released showing the cast of the sci-fi action film using that very technology. Avatar 2 Image...

‘Avatar 2’ Will Still Make Its 2021 Release Date Despite the Coronavirus Delay, According to James Cameron

The Avatar sequels have been in the works for so long that it feels like they’re in a perpetual state of delay. But things were looking up for James Cameron‘s ambitious four-movie follow-up to his record-setting2009 blockbuster.

Film Production Slowly Resumes Overseas, Which is Good News For ‘Avatar 2’ and ‘The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’

In the middle of March, when America began taking the coronavirus pandemic seriously, film and television productions came grinding to a halt. While late night shows and a handful of other productions have found creative ways to get back to work (at least briefly), TV and film production is slowly beginning to resume overseas. That’s a big deal for high-profile titles like Avatar 2, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, and Amazon’s The Lord of the Rings show, and a bit of much-needed good news. ...

‘The New Mutants’ Images Reveal a Giant Demon Bear and Other Weird Villains

Remember The New Mutants? The movie that has been pushed from one release date to the next, only to have the coronavirus pandemic sideline it indefinitely? Well, sooner or later we’ll get to see the damn thing, but for now, let’s make do with new images.

‘Dark Phoenix’ Was the Biggest Box Office Bomb of 2019, Losing $133 Million

The 2020 box office is currently paused, so let’s jump in the Wayback machine and look at the biggest failure of 2019, shall we? A new report reveals that the biggest box office bomb of 2019 was none other than X-Men: Dark Phoenix, the final nail in the coffin of Fox’s X-Men franchise. Yes, even Cats was a bigger “hit” than Dark Phoenix, and that’s saying something.  Deadline crunched the numbers, and it looks like Dark Phoenix is the biggest money loser of 2019.

James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ Sequels Halt Production in New Zealand

James Cameron‘s Avatar sequels have been a long time coming. Since the original science-fiction epic hit theaters in 2009 and went on to become the highest-grossing film of all time, expectations were high for a follow-up — should Cameron follow it up. But the years passed, and the planet of Pandora and its inhabitants slowly faded from public consciousness, despite Cameron constantly talking about how Avatar 2 was in the works. Then, in 2017, the ball seemed to finally get rolling — cast membe...

‘Avatar’ Franchise Villain Colonel Quaritch is Still Being Discovered and Evolving, Stephen Lang Says

At the end of James Cameron‘s sci-fi blockbuster Avatar, which was released all the way back in 2009, villain Colonel Miles Quaritch was apparently killed during the assault on the Tree of Souls. That’s why we were surprised when James Cameron announced that Stephen Lang would be returning in the same role for the forthcoming Avatar sequels. Weirdly enough, there were only three sequels planned when Stephen Lang’s return, but the actor has confirmed that he’s on board for all four, and that mea...
