EXCLUSIVE VIDEO: James Cameron Talks 'Avatar' Re-release, 'Avatar' Sequels, 'Titanic 3D' and More!

We go 1-on-1 with the Oscar winner to discuss 'Avatar', 'Titanic 3D', the 'Alien Prequel', an 'Aquaman' movie, and more!

We recently had a chance to speak with James Cameron to discuss the re-release of Avatar, it's additional footage and why it was cut in the first place.

We also got a chance to speak to the director about:

  • What he thinks of the people that absolutely despise Avatar
  • The ridiculous allegations from people online that think he's re-releasing this to "make more money"
  • Editing his own films
  • What he thinks about the upcoming Ridley Scott Untitled Alien Prequel
  • Doing prequels to his own movies like The Abyss
  • Titanic 3D coming to theaters
  • Directing a real-life version of Aquaman (like he did on HBO's Entourage)
  • The inevitable Avatar 2 and Avatar 3, which he plans to shoot back-to-back

It's no wonder why director James Cameron is "the king of the world." His extremely popular 1997 film Titanic not only won an Oscar for best picture but it also earned over $1 billion worldwide. While many critics didn't think Cameron would ever be able to repeat the success of that film he proved them wrong by returning last year with the 3D space-odyssey Avatar, which has gone on to break all of Titanic's records and earn over $2 billion worldwide. Now Cameron is inviting audiences to return to Pandora once again with a special re-release of his popular 3D film, Avatar, which opens in theaters on August 27th and now features nine-minutes of additional footage not seen in the original cut.

Avatar was released December 18th, 2009 and stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Joel Moore, Giovanni Ribisi, Michelle Rodriguez, Laz Alonso. The film is directed by James Cameron.

Titanic was released December 19th, 1997 and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Frances Fisher, Gloria Stuart, Bill Paxton, Bernard Hill. The film is directed by James Cameron.

Avatar 2 comes to theaters November 2016 and stars Stephen Lang, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington. The film is directed by James Cameron.

Avatar 3 comes to theaters November 2017 and stars Stephen Lang, Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington. The film is directed by James Cameron.

    @ejk1 it would be terrific if they have the two do battle

    @Daveactor7, you don't mean Namor as a villain for Aquaman, do you? He's Aquaman's Marvel counterpart, and therefore will never be on-screen with him. If you mean that Namor would just be an intriguing bad guy in his own movie, then that would be something along the lines of awesome.

    @ejk1 yeah i totally agree. Except Namor would be a much intriguing bad guy

    @Daveactor7, you know how it would go. Eco-terrorists would dump radioactive waste into the ocean, Aquaman fights back. That is lame. Use intrigue from Atlantis, and an enemy like Black Manta.

    @slysnide Then you completely misrepresent yourself. It's time for you to shut your mouth.

    @ElmStreet: The columns like Boos/whoop doos and such dumbass. Not the hard factual stories. Have you not been paying attention? Everyone knows of simple grammatical errors which don't matter, hence why I was referencing those types of news stories, and not the average run of the mill ones that you see everyday.

    @Sly: I know, but yes, the way I presented the argument looked like I was talking about typos, grammar, whatever. My bad. Should have been more specific.

    @Brian and @CBF: True that.

    @comicbookfan From time to time is right. NOT all the time like these other clowns are claiming.

    Dude did I read that right? James Cameron directing Aquaman? SAH-WEET!! I just KNEW Entourage was something special... Time for me to watch these clips now. Medellin would be a cool movie too, an epic gangster flick about Pablo Escobar? Come on Hollywood, Entourage has some great ideas for movies...

    @Slysnide I agree.

    @Elm-Street. Dude. MW DOES edit news stories. I've seen it happen 100 times in my time here. Not that it's a bad thing, it's just editing, but yes, they do do it from time to time.

    Really @narrator? MW changes content after they post it? Glad to know you subscribe to that.

    @Elm_Street, Sly's comment makes perfect sense. Re-read it, and if you still don't get it, then we'll know whats wrong here.

    I'd like an Aquaman movie centering on life in Atlantis, instead of Aquaman vs terrorists from the land. What about you?

    Maybe when Warner Bros. decides to make the JL, they can add aquaman as a cameo, and later on make a movie

    4 years agoby @bawnian-dexeusFlag

  22. ejk1

    @Bawnianxyz, the thing about Aquaman is that he probably needs a major name to be successful. He isn't Batman or Spider-Man. Dicaprio is a name that could carry this, but I do agree that someone else may be able to as well.

    BTW, MW is to see the ;latest news and videos in the movie and tv industry, where you share opinions, and disagree with others with respect, even if there is bashing and hating once in a while....Measure your words before others read it, unless you want it to bite you in the ass later

    4 years agoby @bawnian-dexeusFlag

  24. Bawnian©-Dexeus

    I f they do an Aquaman movie, at least pick a character that can look the part to an underwater king; even the king of Atlantis no doubt...I;m not saying DiCaprio wouldn't perform well, cause he always does, but we need a guy that is like, the Thor of the seas, know what I mean?

    @slysnide you make absolutely NO SENSE. You're talking about MW "editing" stories? Give me a break. They post. It stays. Prove me wrong, I dare you....oh wait, you can't because you're bashing MW for no reason. You're panties are obviously in a bunch. You don't like it. F*cking leave, son. No one needs you.

    That's true. I find it somewhat interesting ,though, that everyone here is basically taking a dump on the character of Aquaman. I will grant you that he's not my favorite, but someone must've liked him to last nearly seventy years. Namor gets way more respect than Arthur Curry does.

    @ejk1 not to mention he has the definite looks. Also hes an actor who hasnt played a superhero yet

    @Daveactor7, Dicaprio as Aquaman works because he's a great actor, and he's a name that will add to the box-office total.
