James Cameron wants to help Mythbusters prove that Jack and Rose could not have both occupied that door-raft
For a while now, there’s been a debate among some on the internet regarding one of the near ending scenes in Titanic, where Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) freezes to death in the north Atlantic while Rose (Kate Winslet) is relatively safe, floating on a broken door. Many seem to think that both Jack and Rose could have fit on the door, but James Cameron insists that the scene is correct, and only one person could have fit on the door. And he’s going on Mythbusters to prove it.
James Cameron has made a pretty wide variety of movies in his career, but apparently he’s now just in the business of making Avatar films. As far as his future film plans go, he recently said he’s going to make a second, third and perhaps fourth Avatar movie and then he’s done with anything to do with movies other than maybe some documentaries.
Battlebots was cool as hell, and at the time seemed like the awesomely nerdy future of televised sport. Battlebots is no longer on the air, but James Cameron wants to bring remote controlled robot fighting back to television with a new show called ‘Robogeddon’. Okay, Cameron… you’re starting to get back on my good side.
Director James Cameron has been obsessed with the deep ocean for a long time now. Ever since The Abyss and much later with Titanic, Cameron has had big dreams of exploring the deepest points in the ocean. This past weekend, he and his camera crew went down seven miles to the bottom of the Marianas Trench, where he plans on filming six hours in the deepest place on Earth.
James Cameron talks about plans for an Avatar MMO. Yeah, that’s not going to be the most annoying MMO ever.
"Commencing attack made of love and neon unicorn tears in 3…2…1…"
I like to explore different MMOs, but the fun or lack thereof in an MMO can be 50% the actual game and 50% the community that actually makes up the “MMO” part. I probably wouldn’t play a non-MMO Avatar game, but the idea of a thousand blue cat people getting into idiotic environmental and new agey spiritual flamewars in trade chat makes me want to stick my head in the oven. But James Cameron thinks this is a good idea.
James Cameron is building a super submarine so that he can film scenes for Avatar 2 in the Mariana Trench
So it appears that at this point, 20th Century Fox has just opened up their secret endless gold vaults hidden deep in the Rocky Mountains and has just told James Cameron “go at it”. First he visits Indians in the Amazon rain forest for research and so that he can take the most awful, whitest white person photo ever and now he’s building some sort of super submarine so that he can shoot some scenes for Avatar 2 in the Mariana Trench at the bottom of the ocean.
In preparation for writing Avatar 2, James Cameron trekked down to Brazil to see how the native tribes of the Amazon lived. He brought his 3D camera, you know, just for shits and giggles and now that he’s visited, he wanted to do a documentary in 3D about the tribes of the Amazon. And he looks like a complete dolt in that picture above, which was my main reason for posting this article.
Despite the fact that only now is the World of Warcraft movie getting barely off the ground, Blizzard isn’t averse to having their games adapted to film. On the contrary, they’d love to have more Blizzard properties turned into movies, it’s just that they’re extremely picky when it comes to directors. They’re currently keeping open the idea of a Starcraft movie, but apparently the only director right now that they’d let touch it would be… James Cameron.
