Ali Avatar Sequel Comments Off on James Cameron reveals first details of Kate Winslet’s Avatar sequel character

EW shares information from James Cameron on Kate’s character for the sequel to Avatar.

James Cameron is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Titanic, in part, by reuniting with star Kate Winslet. The pair are currently filming The Avatar Sequels, a.k.a. Avatar 2, the first of four planned continuations to Cameron’s record-setting 2009 blockbuster.

“She’s very excited about it. She blazed through for a couple of days of rehearsals and saw the world that we had created, and how we do the work, and she’s very excited,” Cameron told Vanity Fair in an interview.

The director previously revealed Winslet will star as Ronal in the film and explained to Vanity Fair that she’s “a character who’s part of the Sea People, the reef people.”

“The one thing she did do is demand that she do all her own water work,” Cameron said of Winslet. “I said, ‘All right, that’s fine, we’ll have to teach you how to free dive.’ The other actors are up to three- and four-minute breath holds. We’ve already been doing underwater capture. We did a scene last week with six teenagers, well, actually five teenagers and one 7-year-old underwater holding their breath for a couple minutes and acting, actually doing a dialogue scene under water because they speak kind of a sign language.”

Winslet’s casting was first announced in October. “Kate and I have been looking for something to do together for 20 years, since our collaboration on Titanic, which was one of the most rewarding of my career. I can’t wait to see her bring the character of Ronal to life,” Cameron said previously.

As EW revealed back in October, the second Avatar film will focus on the offspring of Jake Sully and Neytiri (original stars Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana, who will return for the sequels). “We never had this youthful element before, and that brings a different kind of energy to the film,” Avatar producer Jon Landau told EW. “They represent the future generation of Pandora [the plant the film’s aliens, the Na’vi, call home] and play a very significant role — not just in this movie but throughout all the movies.”

The first of the Avatar Sequels is set to hit theaters in 2020, 11 years after the original. “It will be a natural extension of all the themes, and the characters, and the spiritual undercurrents,” Cameron told Vanity Fair of what fans should expect. “Basically, if you loved the first movie, you’re gonna love these movies, and if you hated it, you’re probably gonna hate these. If you loved it at the time, and you said later you hated it, you’re probably gonna love these.”

Ali Titanic, Videos Comments Off on Titanic to return to theaters for 20th anniversary

Twenty years later, and we’re still not letting go.

Titanic will celebrate its 20th anniversary next month by returning to theaters on Friday, Dec. 1. The film’s official Twitter account posted a video of director James Cameron promoting the news, saying that it “was like seeing it for the first time,” referencing the fact that the re-release will be in Dolby Vision exclusively at AMC Theatres.

While the return to theaters gives fans the opportunity to relive all of their favorite memories from the modern classic, its stint back on the big screen – much like the famed ship itself – won’t last forever. Titanic will only be in theaters for one week before sailing away once more. Perhaps that still gives fans enough time to embrace the friendship between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet through the years and debate the film’s final scene involving Rose and Jack.

Check out the trailer for Titanic‘s return to theaters above, and make sure to get in the proper mindset by listening to “My Heart Will Go On” a few times before the big day.

Ali Articles, Interviews, Wonder Wheel Comments Off on Kate Winslet finds her strength for ‘Wonder Wheel’

It’s the day of the New York Film Festival premiere of “Wonder Wheel,” and, as she slides into a booth at a midtown restaurant, Kate Winslet has shifted her focus to another opening — her 17-year-old daughter’s school play.

Winslet finishes texting her daughter, Mia, for an update and we debate whether it’s more challenging to raise an adolescent girl or boy. (Winslet also has a 13-year-old son, Joe, as well as a 3-year-old boy, Bear.) Basically, we decide it’s a draw.

Winslet’s powerful, confident turn in “Wonder Wheel” drew strong reviews at the New York festival. In the Woody Allen film, she plays Ginny, a postwar Coney Island waitress harboring deep regrets about her past and holding onto a desperate hope that she might escape her life’s misery and at last find happiness.

During the interview, Winslet, 42, shared her thoughts about disgraced producer Harvey Weinstein and how she pointedly refused to thank him at the Oscars. (The Times published a story last month on that subject.)

“I won’t be pushed around or bullied by anyone,” Winslet said. “I was bullied as a child. Never again. Certainly not by Harvey Weinstein.”

That’s a good place to pick up the conversation.

You mentioned you were bullied as a child. What happened?

I was very chubby, so I was teased for that when I was 7 or 8. Really horribly teased. Locked in a cupboard, stuff like that. And then when I was a teenager, I was bullied again for similar reasons.

Is that a reason you’ve been outspoken on body image over the years?

We have to somehow instill this idea in young women that their body is their strength, that their body is something to be proud of and can carry them, as opposed to being something they just don’t like and continue to criticize and comment upon. So we have to try to help young women reach that place of acceptance at a younger age.

Ali Articles, Awards Comments Off on Kate Winslet Chokes Back Tears During Emotional Speech at SAG-AFTRA Patron of the Artists Awards

The Hollywood Reporter shares some of the highlights of Kate’s speech from last night’s SAG-AFTRA Patron of the Artists Awards.

The Oscar winner talked about helping others, especially a young mom in her native U.K. battling a rare form of Ovarian cancer.

Kate Winslet may have fame and fortune, but none of it would be worth it if she couldn’t give back.

Case in point: the Oscar winner’s efforts earlier this year to help a woman named Gemma Nuttall, who was battling a rare form of ovarian cancer.

Winslet joined a fundraising effort to help pay for the 28-year-old fellow Brit’s life-saving treatments. “Her prognosis dictated that she should have been dead in June,” Winslet said while choking back tears at last night’s SAG-AFTRA Foundation Patron of the Artists Awards, where she was honored with the Actors Inspiration Award. “[But] I was able to help fundraise an enormous amount of money and she’s cancer-free today.”

Winslet was presented with her award by her Titanic co-star Kathy Bates.

“The greatest privilege for me has been learning how to use my voice on behalf of others,” Winslet said. “And, for me, that is standing up for individuals who do not have the means to help themselves, whether they have autism and are non-verbal, whether they are homeless because of addiction, abuse or fear or helping a person who is dying … because they haven’t the money to pay for the specialist treatment that could save their life.

“I can’t stand that, so helping others who are striving to find a place in the world where they are understood, heard, accepted, supported, appreciated or given a right to a life — these are the individuals I am passionate about helping.”

Winslet recalled working on her big screen debut, Heavenly Creatures.

“When I woke up for my first ever day of filming, age 17, it was cold and dark outside and I felt like I had a secret,” said Winslet, now 42. “I felt as though the minute I stepped out of bed I was stepping out into a completely unknown world and embarking on a journey all by myself into the world of acting.”

Winslet insisted she had no idea what she was doing. “I didn’t have any formal training in spite of what everyone thought and still thinks probably but I had done my homework and I had toughened myself up so I was ready to take it all on,” she said, adding, “All I knew was that I was lucky and I had better not fuck it up.”

Honoree Judd Apatow took time to speak out about the sexual harassment scandals currently roiling Hollywood.

“I think we all need to get together and really support all these people who are speaking up,” Apatow said. “We’re all aware now that there are really dark forces trying to keep people quiet.”

Referencing The New Yorker’s recent article that claims Harvey Weinstein enlisted the help of ex-Mossad agents to track his accusers and journalists investigating their claims of sexual assault, Apatow said, “Now we understand why it’s been so hard for people to fight this fight. But now that we’re all talking about it, we need to continue to talk about it and come up with some solutions so that we can spend our time protecting our actors and actresses.”

Kathryn Bigelow, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos and Lionel Richie were also honored.

“I can’t tell you how many communities I have been in around the world and people say to me, ‘Mr. Richie, how in the world do I get started?’” the “All Night Long” singer said. “I say, ‘Take one step at a time and dream. If you don’t have dreams, you don’t have possibilities.”

The evening, which took place at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, included musical performances by Kristen Bell, Katherine McPhee, Sarah Bareilles, Renee Olsead and Diane Warren.

Taking the stage to talk about the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s work were Andrew Garfield, Mandy Moore, Tracee Ellis Ross, Allison Janney, Jack Gyllenhaal, Tatiana Maslany and Gary Oldman, among others.
