Speaking at a screening for the Titanic remake, Landau suggested that Avatar 2 is due to be released in 2016, seven years after the original. In October 2010, director James Cameron revealed he had earmarked the eagerly anticipated sequel for cinemas in December 2014, and Avatar 3 in December 2015.
He said at the time: 'I am in the process of writing the next two Avatar films now. We are planning to shoot them together and post them together, and we will probably release them not quite back to back, but about a year apart. Christmas '14 and '15 is the current plan.'
Although no explanation has been given as to why fans will have to wait another two long years, it is thought Cameron may need more time to push the boundaries of 3D technology. According to reports, he wants to make Avatar 2 more realistic by shooting it at 60 frames per second, as opposed to the industry standard of 24 frames per second.
In comparison, Peter Jackson is shooting The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey at 48 frames per second.

There is an interview with George Lucas at the source, but I can't get to embed.
Mods, Bits of the article have been posted, but not the 7 minute preview.
Here’s the synopsis for Friends with Kids:
Friends With Kids is a daring and poignant ensemble comedy about a close-knit circle of friends at that moment in life when children arrive and everything changes. The last two singles in the group observe the effect that kids have had on their friends’ relationships and wonder if there’s a better way. They decide to have a kid together – and date other people.
There are big laughs and unexpected emotional truths as this unconventional ‘experiment’ leads everyone in the group to question the nature of friendship, family and, finally, true love.
The full Jason Wu for Target look book is finally out! In keeping with Wu's signature aesthetic, there's lots of pleating, bows, modest necklines, and nipped-at-the waist shapes. The ten different handbags look well-structured and come in polished-looking cream and black, as well as more girlish prints. Fabric-wise, there's a nice mix of solids, stripes, florals, lace, and a cute black-cat pattern that shows up on a scarf and a tote bag. This collection is a one-off and should sell briskly, so be prepared for its February 5 drop date. You can see pricing specifics (from $19.99 to $59.99) in our slideshow.
Could How I Met Your Mother live on in some form after viewers finally meet the Mother?
TVLine tossed that provocative question out to executive producers Carter Bays and Craig Thomas at an intimate lunch the pair hosted for a handful of news outlets on Wednesday. Their response? It’s not out of the realm of possibility.
“That’s come up,” Bays said of a spinoff that would allow them to bring current Mother mystery arc to a satisfying conclusion — perhaps at the end of Season 8 — and then possibly relaunch the show with a slightly tweaked premise and title (i.e. What Happened After I Met Your Mother).
“We’ve had conversations about rewinding back to 2005 and doing a series called How I Met Your Father,” Thomas revealed with a laugh. “From the perspective of what was happening with the Mother all those years. Occasionally, she’ll stumble through McLaren’s and no one will see her.”
Bays floated another idea that similarly involved turning back the clock. “One way to go is to finish the [mother] story at the end of Season 8, and then Season 9 is, ‘Oh, by the way kids, I left some stuff out…,’” he explained. “And then it’s just 24 little stories that took place over the course of the series here and there. Like, ‘Here’s something funny that happened in 2006.’”
Given the ratings growth Mother has enjoyed in its current seventh season, it’s not difficult to understand why CBS and producer 20th Century Fox TV would want to keep the franchise going — either in its current form or an altered one. Either way, Bays hopes to have some resolution on the matter soon (the series has already been renewed through Season 8.)
“We’ve already started discussions with [20th] about letting them know we need some lead time because we do have a story we want to tell and we see how quickly or slowly we should be telling this story,” he said. “Hopefully we’ll get an answer to that in time.
“It’s a hard thing,” Bays continued. “Obviously, we don’t ever want to keep the show on longer than it needs to, just like we don’t want to end it before it should end. But it’s the best job any of us have ever had.”
I like HIMYM but idk how I feel about this...

Legend Stevie Nicks is reportedly recording a new solo album as a tribute to her late mother.
Barbara Nicks died in Arizona at the age of 84, with her famous daughter by her side, on 28 December (11).
The Fleetwood Mac star, 63, later spoke out about the devastating loss, admitting, "She supported me and all of my dreams. She was the one that made it all possible."
And now the Landslide singer is set to remember her mum by composing a record in her honour, according to the National Enquirer.
A source says, "Stevie always finds something positive in the worst situations, and no one's surprised at her decision to write a tribute album to her mum.
"While sitting at Barbara's bedside, she recalled the tremendous influence her mother had on her life... Stevie has been writing constantly and wants to have the tribute album out by summer."
ONTD, would you date someone for money?
Brittany Murphy's mother is determined to prove that her daughter didn't die of natural causes, and her father is doing the same.
Angelo Bertolotti is now suing the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office because he disagrees with the official cause of death.
According to RadarOnline, the Clueless actress' dad is trying to gain access to his late daughter's hair samples so he can conduct his own testing.
Animal rights all-star and peta2's 2011 Sexiest Vegetarian Celebrity Alissa White-Gluz from The Agonist is bringing her awesomeness to MTV next week.
On Tuesday, January 17, Alissa will appear on MADE as a coach to Julia, a straight-laced high school junior who's been bullied since middle school. Now Julia wants to gain the confidence to stand up for herself by being made into a hardcore metal screamer, and that's where Alissa comes in—to teach Julia the art of mastering a metal lifestyle.
I'm a fan of The Agonist and was pretty shocked to see this. I didn't even know they were still doing new episodes of Made, lol. Alissa seems like a really nice person, so it'll be interesting to see her on this, imo. And yes, Alissa works with Peta2 a lot. Iirc, she said something not too long ago about wanting to work with them even though she doesn't agree with everything Peta does. And to be shallow, I was pretty excited to see she went back to blue. This shade is gorgeous. I can't wait to see The Agonist again next month.
Mariah Carey has inspired countless artists across the globe with her incredible vocal performances so it was no surprise when she was chosen to be celebrated at the 2012 BET Honors. However, instead of selecting one of the many artists who may have the vocal chops to attempt some of her classic tunes, such as Jordin Sparks, Christina Aguilera or Leona Lewis, BET has opted for someone else – Kelly Rowland.
Shockingly, Rowland has been selected to sing one of Carey’s hits at the BET Honors ceremony, which will be filmed this weekend. The show, which is set to air on February 13th at pm ET, will also feature tributes to Stevie Wonder, Maya Angelou and others. There is no word regarding if another more capable live performer will join Rowland onstage as it it customary for two acts to sing for each honoree.
What in the name of Prue, Piper, Phoebe and Paige is happening in that BET building?! Yes, Carey herself may have chosen Rowland but couldn’t somebody on her team or at BET warn her that Rowland could barely sing ‘Motivation’ live so handling even the simplest Carey song would obviously be too much?
Let us all hope and pray that Rowland decides to lip-sync this tribute to Carey similar to most of her other performances. If not, then BET and some of Carey’s dedicated fans are going to have a very serious problem. source
Corey Stoll was just a little-known actor who happened to be appearing opposite Scarlett Johansson in “A View From the Bridge” on Broadway when Woody Allen – who cast Ms. Johansson in his film “Match Point” — came to see the show. Not long after, Mr. Stoll, best known from his role as the bald detective on the short-lived “Law & Order: Los Angeles,” was called in to see Mr. Allen about a part in “Midnight in Paris.” He was duly petrified but wound up with the role of Hemingway. He donned a wig and a mustache, and on screen he was one of the most memorable stars in a cast that included Owen Wilson and Marion Cotillard.
To prepare for the part, Mr. Stoll read much of Hemingway again, and read about him, and even studied boxing. But the humor in the part, he revealed to the Bagger in a special “Scene Stealers” video, comes not in playing the actual Hemingway, but playing to audiences’ idea of the writer. He is ur-Hemingway, with a beyond self-assured delivery and a macho, unblinking stare.
Olsen, whose profile rose dramatically this year following her turn in "Martha Marcy May Marlene," will play Edie Parker, the wealthy art-student girlfriend of Jack Kerouac (Huston). Radcliffe will play Allen Ginsberg; Dehaan plays Lucien Carr, a classmate of Ginsberg's for whom he develops feelings.
Killer Films' Christine Vachon, Michael Benaroya of Benaroya Pictures and Rose Ganguzza of Rose Pictures are producing from a script by John Krokidas, who will also make his feature directorial debut. Lensing is set to begin March 12 in New York at Columbia University.
Olsen, whose resume was spare before bursting onto the scene at last year's Sundance Film Fest with "Martha Marcy May Marlene," will return to Park City this year with the paranormal drama "Red Lights." She also has "Silent House," "Liberal Arts" and "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding" with Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener on the way.
DeHaan, who stars in the HBO series "In Treatment," will soon be seen in Fox's supernatural thriller "Chronicle" next month. Huston's credits include "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," and he was most recently seen on HBO's "Boardwalk Empire."
