Movie News Tuesday

News & rumors...

Avatar has now amassed $1.6 billion world wide in just five weeks. It also won Golden Globes Sunday night for Best Picture-Drama and Best Director.

J.J. Abrams says the Star Trek sequel will involve the Gorn from the original series. (He also mentioned a sequel to Cloverfield.)

Green Lantern rumors - in addition to Ryan Reynolds (as the Green Lantern) and Blake Lively & Peter Sarsgaard, Warner Bros. is looking at Jackie Earle Haley to play Sinestro. (That would be awesome! Caught him in the TV series Human Shield the other nite and he was great.)

Pandorum - staring Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster - comes out today on DVD.

I'm probably the only person on the planet who has yet to see Avatar! Not that I don't want to! I can't wait to see it, just haven't worked it *in* yet!

Am I correct in *assuming* that this movie has broken all records to date as far as sales?

And what of Pandorum? Have you seen it Alex?

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Guess we need to start placing bets where Avatar will end - $2.5 billion? $3 billion?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Crystal, Pandorum wasn't bad. A bit trippy and the villian would surprise you.

Diane, I'll wager a guess - 2.7 billion!

Again, thanks for the info and tips on good flicks!

I watch a lot of movies - and Hulu!

If they do a sequel to CLOVERFIELD
I hope they dispense with the hand held camera technique. I loved the concept of the movie, but for me the shaky homemade look gets old after a while. I prefer traditional camera work.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Lee, I agree with you! It's a one-trick-pony and shouldn't be overused. Once was definitely enough!

Well, there's a least two of us, then, who haven't seen Avatar. Then, as most anyone can attest, I rarely get out much.

Best Wishes Galen.

Hate to disappoint you Galen, but I have indeed seen Avatar. Three times!

Thanks for the heads up on what's coming. Loved Avatar. Also really liked Star Trek (it's even better seeing it the second time).
