Avatar is about to be dethroned. At some point, Star Wars: The Force Awakens will probably unseat James Cameron’s extraterrestrial epic as the movie with the highest (unadjusted) box office of all time. So this is a good time to remind you that Avatar is actually quite a decent movie.
James Cameron provided an update on the sequels to his 2009 film, Avatar, noting that he wanted to make sure that the first film “wasn’t just some big fluke”.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is once again playing a machine cloaked in human skin in Terminator Genisys, but now he’s the most human thing in a plastic movie. Arnie’s trademark grimace looks rough around the edges, like a slab of petrified wood after years of erosion. In a movie that’s basically shitty comfort food, the…
Camera-equipped drones swoop and shoot aerial shots for TV and movies with gorgeous Planet Earth grandeur. Now, director James Cameron’s backing a new contest in New Zealand to find drone designs to make the flying cameras even better-suited to Hollywood.
James Cameron showed us new worlds in films like Avatar and The Abyss. So it's no wonder that the filmmaker would want to explore the one we actually live in. Deepsea Challenge 3D chronicles his journey to the greatest depths of the ocean—thanks to an incredible sub that Gizmodo recently had a chance to see up close.
For folks who miss the colorful 3D world of giant blue people and/or want to see more Dances with Wolves movies, Avatar 2, 3 and 4 will come out in December 2016, 2017 and 2018. [Deadline]
James Cameron wants everyone to adopt "5-D," a term coined by the film and television industry to describe shooting in 2-D and 3-D simultaneously.
Deepsea Challenger wasn't the only piece of custom hardware he took to the bottom of the Marianas Trench. Those stunning images he took were captured with dual HD cameras, no bigger than your thumb, in their own titanium Mini-Me sphere.
No one asked James Cameron to trot out Titanic again with an annoying 3D makeover. But at least this time around the stars in scenes where the night sky is visible will all be in the right place.
James Cameron went down to the deepest pit of hell and came back unscathed. It was an amazing trip. He touched down on the Challenger Deep, exploring for three hours. "It's an alien world," he said. These are the first images.
Over the weekend, James Cameron successfully made it to the the bottom of the Mariana Trench—the deepest point on Earth. Bad. Ass.Though you might not realize it, the sea bed—even the area surrounding the Mariana Trench—is littered with submarine communication cables. They're there to string together…
Director and science nerd James Cameron is making an attempt to travel to the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the ocean. The last time someone tried this was in 1960, when Swiss oceanographer Jacques Piccard and Navy Lt. Don Walsh spent a weak 20 minutes at the bottom. Cameron plans on filming and exploring for…
The Atlantic has the story on X Prize competition to reach the Challenger Deep, the deepest known point in the world at 35,797 feet. Three teams are racing to get the $10 million award.
How's this for high-profile clientele, eh? RED has sold 50 of their EPIC-M pro-cams to James Cameron—at $58,000 each, that's a cool $2.9 million he just forked out. Now, I've heard of shopping-based envy before, but Cameron's taking his to a new level after no-doubt hearing Peter Jackson ordered 30 for The Hobbit, and
First it was digital projection. Then, 3D. And now James Cameron has set his sites on a more subtle—but possibly more important—innovation in film: frame rates. While the industry has been stuck at 24fps since the Roaring 20s, Cameron believes that by bumping that up to 48fps, or even 60fps, Hollywood can…
It was pretty cool to hear that James Cameron got NASA to put 3D cameras in Curiosity, the next Mars Rover. If 3D is good for anything, it's exploring space and worlds we've never actually seen before (see: Avatar). But alas, NASA decided against it.
