James Cameron

  1. Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington Are Locked In For the Avatar Sequels, If Anyone Still Cares

    Officially Official

    It's been over four years since Avatar came out, and for most of those years we've known that director James Cameron is ready to get his thinly veiled metaphor on in an ever-increasing number of sequels. First it was two, then maybe three. But fans chomping at the bit to see the return of Dances With Blue, Alien Wolves will have to wait awhile, 'cause stars Zoe Saldana and Sam Worthington just now officially signed on to star.

  2. Ripley’s Exoskeleton From Aliens Is Real And You Can Buy One

    Get away from her, you... Oh, no. Actually, this is pretty great.

    We've all seen the clip from James Cameron's 1986 film Aliens, where Sigourney Weaver (as eternal badass Ellen Ripley) puts the smack-down on an alien queen while wearing a strength-enhancing exoskeleton. Looks like the folks over at Panasonic have seen it too, because they've manufactured their own version - and are going to start mass-production.

  3. “Terminator” Polymer Discovered, Capable of Healing Itself

    Skynet due to overtake humanity at any moment. No city is safe.

    Spanish scientists, who have apparently never seen a James Cameron film, have developed a new polymer that spontaneously heals itself. Dubbing the material the “Terminator” polymer, after the T-1000 (played by Robert Patrick in Terminator 2), the scientists maintain that the material’s true use is to improve the lifetime of everyday plastic products.

  4. James Cameron Working With Steven Charles Gould to Pen Four Avatar Novels

    It's almost like he thinks the ground-breaking 3D effects weren't the main reason we were all so obsessed.

    The universe of one of the most visually stunning movies in the past few years will now be relegated to our mind's eye: James Cameron-- who hasn't yet finished the screenplay the three Avatar sequels-- is now working with science fiction writer Steven Charles Gould to write four stand-alone novels set in the Avatar universe.

  5. Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles Creator Set To Help Write James Cameron’s Avatar Sequel

    And So It Begins

    James Cameron's Avatar sequels have been a topic of conversation since the unbelievably successful first installment was released in 2009, and yet we still haven't seen the recognizable blue Na'vi of the series in a single sequel, let alone two or three. Still, Avatar will be back, and now Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles creator Josh Friedman has been hired to help write the screenplay for Avatar 2, according to a source at The Wrap.

  7. James Cameron Donates Submarine to Science, Puts All Other Directors to Shame

    Tyrannical director, film producer, screenwriter, and self-proclaimed "king of the world" James Cameron, to be fair, has done a lot. Maybe he helmed his movies and projects with an ego and a serious dose of bluster, but the man is also a deep-sea explorer who leveled up the science of  aquatic cinematography and robotics. Now he's doing it again, but this time by letting go of the wheel. Cameron has donated his own personal submersible -- which, not coincidentally, looks like something out of The Abyss -- to science. Specifically, to the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), with which he's had a longstanding relationship.

  8. Serenity Now: Startup Will Send “FireFly” Spacecraft to Prospect Mineable Asteroids

    Asteroids have been catching our attention a lot lately. Apophis was found to be larger and more dangerous than initially believed just in time for it to pass by Earth at 9.3 million miles. NASA has a potential plan to give the Moon its own moon by capturing an asteroid. The European Space Agency is sending up a pair of craft to test asteroid deflection methods. Now the startup Deep Space Industries plans to send "FireFly" spacecraft to explore near-earth asteroids to see if they can mine them for resources.

  9. Room for One More? Mythbusters Prove Leonardo DiCaprio Could Fit On the Raft In Titanic

    The ending of the movie Titanic has been a cinematic bone of contention for the ages. Relationships have been shattered and children disowned as a result of the senseless bickering between the two camps --  folks who take Cameron at his word that the wardrobe door could not have preserved the lives of both star-crossed lovers, and other people (yours truly included) who have always believed that there was pretty clearly room for two people, and the whole ending was a piece of idiocy that ruined an otherwise excellent film. Thanks to the Mythbusters crew, we can now shorten the title of the second camp -- you can just refer to us as "the people who were right." Want proof that both Jack and Rose could have lived to see another day, bet married, and probably grow sick of one another in due time? Let's go to the tape.

  10. Science Beats James Cameron: Titanic’s Death Scene Officially Mythbusted

    and let it be known

    Annoyed movie-goers (and director James Cameron) have argued this one for years but we can finally put it to rest. The Mythbusters crew (Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman) tried to figure out if Titanic's Rose and Jack could both have survived. Cameron may think he had the last word but I think that's best left to this guy. (via MTV) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?
