‘Avatar’ Could Have Starred Chris Evans or Channing Tatum

Avatar stars the somewhat bland Sam Worthington as Jake Sully. But at one point, the role almost went to one of two far more charismatic actors. According to Mr. Avatar himself, James Cameron, both Chris Evans and Channing Tatum came very close to landing the lead role, but Worthington ultimately won the filmmaker over. The rest is history. James Cameron has been on an Avatar promotional blitz lately, dishing out details about both the original film, and the upcoming five sequels. While stop...

Despite Its Faults, ‘Alita: Battle Angel’ is the Kind of Cinematic Spectacle We Rarely See These Days

Alita: Battle Angel is the latest action extravaganza from two of our most auteur-like blockbuster directors working: Robert Rodriguez and James Cameron. Cameron served as a producer, but has spent over a decade trying to get the film off the ground on his own. It was originally announced in 2003 but production of Avatar kept Cameron from committing to the project, in addition to other development issues. In 2016, Robert Rodriguez was brought on as a director and the film finally got made....

James Cameron Says ‘Avatar 2’ Story Goes to ‘Dark Places’, Calls the Four Sequels an ‘Emotional Rollercoaster’

Did you hear? There are several Avatar sequels coming out! It feels as if we’ve been talking about them for almost a decade…because we have.

Cameron recently dropped some knowledge regarding the emotional stakes of the upcoming films – from the “dark places” characters go to in Avatar 2, to the “emotional rollercoaster” of the franch...

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Star Rosa Salazar on Transforming Into a Digital Cyborg Character [Interview]

Rosa Salazar is the heart and soul of Alita: Battle Angel. The actress, known for her work in the Maze Runner series, breathes life into what’s easily Robert Rodriguez‘s biggest and most sincere movie. The scale of the James Cameron-produced manga adaptation is a treat for the eyes, but Alita is the main attraction of this spectacle, and the reason it’s easy to get lost in the world. Alita is another major accomplishment for Weta, as well as for Rodriguez and Salazar. The character, who was cre...

Comment on spaetzle by Cameron

I’ve made a very similar recipe, but with a spoonful of ricotta in place of some of the eggs, and some lemon zest. I recommend serving the spaetzle with a dollop of ricotta seasoned with salt and lemon juice, a dollop of green-pea pesto, and steamed asparagus! It’s delicious and very filling this way.

‘Alita: Battle Angel’ Star Christoph Waltz on Working with Robert Rodriguez and Cinematographer Bill Pope [Interview]

Alita: Battle Angel isn’t a movie set in the future that’s all about doom and gloom. Director Robert Rodriguez‘s grand spectacle tells a story with genuine warmth and kindness, thanks in no small part to the presence of actor Christoph Waltz. Playing Dr. Dyson Ido, who discovers Alita in a heap of trash and jolts her back to life, Waltz helps make Rodriguez’s adaptation of Yukito Kishiro‘s manga series more heartfelt than a typical studio movie (which Alita: Battle Angel most certainly is not)....
