Who did not enjoy Avatar? We learned that anyone whose bomb or trigger happy is antiquated and that virtual Indigenous People all combined into one tribe, painted blue with corn braids and feathers are really all of us who care about saving the planet.
Now Avatar‘s main cast are talking up a sequel. Here’s the main points of what’s been hyped at this early stage:
It’s Out There: “It’s going to be really cool and out there,” Australia’s Sam Worthington tells moviefone.

On James Cameron wanting to be Moses: “He’s still writing what he calls ‘The Bible’ and detailing the world. Once he’s detailed the world — more so than it’s already detailed in his big brain, anyway — then, he said he can write the script, and we can go explore the world. Things like going underwater….going in the floating mountains.”
On the saving the planet theme: “What’s the new dilemma? Is it just humans coming back, or is something even bigger than can threaten them, threaten the world? We can look at our world again, and see that we know we’re hurting the environment, and we know we can do things about it. But what else are we doing that’s wrong…?”
To read more vague thoughts from an actor who has not yet been fed the script that does not yet exist in full, go here to MovieFone. I swear Worthington could be the next Elena Kagan because that interview was pretty impressive at giving away little.
We also have to remember that the novels are meant to be arriving on book shelves before the film (according to James own words) and even before the film script of the sequel is ready. We also have to realize, that James Cameron was last spotted with Andrew Adamson brainstorming the concept of turning Vegas’ acrobats into 3D movie-telling mythological ideas.
James is in no rush to do an Avatar sequel–he’s happy just taking each day as it comes. Smart man.

Christine O’Donnell is quoted saying: “At a speech Tuesday night in Virginia, Christine called Obama’s tax cut deal that included the extension of unemployment benefits a “tragedy” comparable to the attack on Pearl Harbor and the death of Elizabeth Edwards, The Hill reported.
“Tragedy comes in threes,” O’Donnell told the audience. “Pearl Harbor, Elizabeth Edwards’s passing and Barack Obama‘s announcement of extending the tax cuts but also extending the unemployment benefits,” she added. On Monday, the President and GOP leaders agreed to keep Bush-era tax cuts in place for all Americans for the next two years and extended jobless benefits for 13 months.
I don’t blame Obama’s government for the 9.8% unemployment rate currently, because I never created a job for anyone else, the last two years. How can I blame Obama for what I didn’t do? One year in the US, I was able to create a job for someone. The last two years, no.
This year, someone unexpectedly created a part time job that they offered me. The timing of the job could not have been better. For this person’s kindness, I will always be thankful. Their actions are what I know of real America, and not what’s in magazines, but the stuff real people are made of here, who build community with sustained effort.
Reports Urmee Khan for the UK Telegraph:
Channel 4 will light up the U.K’s television with footage of The Queen in 3D. Urmee says that the footage of her Majesty will look like a regular television picture until viewers, reach across the coffee table over the ruby, for their special glasses where the images will strangely appear to emerge from the screen. Right in your own living room.
It’s perhaps a way of Her Majesty saying, she has a unique perspective? A very cool idea.
Director Bob Angell and cameraman Arthur Wooster shot the colour newsreel as part of a package called Royal Review. The special 3D effect was achieved by using two cameras simultaneously at different angles before blending the archived footage into one single picture. It’s about blending two views of the same existing facts pre-recorder to reflect a more relevant view today, no one has ever seen from that unique perspective.
3D Royal filmic content: The 3D footage features Queen Elizabeth II at events she attended in the lead up to and after her Coronation in 1953. A visit to the Epsom Derby features and a wee trip on the Royal Barge on the Thames. How posh! Sailing along down the river then.
Angell and Wooster, are in their 80s, and have come out of retirement to make the documentary and get behind the camera one more time and create contemporary footage of the Queen. Grey Power are seriously rocking out a show to inspire the world. Very cool.
David Glover, whose rather grand job description defines him as ‘a specialist factual commissioning editor,’ says, “When I was told that there was unseen footage of the Queen’s coronation in 3D I didn’t really believe it at first. Watching it didn’t disappoint – it was like turning the TV set into a window – you draw back the curtains and look straight back into 1953.”
David Glover adds, “Watching period 3D documentary footage is about as close to time travel as one can get. You watch as the crowds wave at the coronation and you see the young Queen Elizabeth walking right past you,” he added. Sainsburys will distribute the special red and blue glasses for free in collaboration with Channel 4. It’s like Christmas.
The two, hour-long programmes, are made by Renegade Picture Ltd/Can Communicate, in association with the British Film Institute (BFI) and will be shown later in the year.

America hasn’t been forthcoming in providing high profile Asian-American faces in Hollywood texts of entertainment. Why? Who knows.
When needing to broker new markets with either India or China to grow the American economy any Asian faces are worthwhile promoting to show cultural match with these two nations.
Here’s a study of Dan Choi – one of the few Asian-American faces actually allowed to be promoted within America. I’m writing this from Hollywood the weekend that California was successful in brokering a film making partnership with the Indian film industry this week. So at least some gains are being made for America and the economy this week.
If we’re talking about growing Hollywood’s film industry, perhaps Asian action films, as in Bruce Lee proven cross-over film markets appeal, being updated in 3D, are what Hollywood should be seeking to do–to grow the California film industry. Perhaps.
If I was the Governor of California (eg: newly elected Jerry Brown) I would hold meetings with Spielberg and Ang Lee types too and the likes, to suggest California partners with China to remake Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon in 3D, or a movie similar.
As America is too slow, I guess New Zealand filmmakers will have to get on this one instead, to grow the Chinese-Kiwi film industry down under. Actors of the calibre of Yun-Fat Chow and Ziyi Zhang would be very welcome in New Zealand to make their films, I reckon.
Good films with Asian leads should be normal in the world. Asian faces should be seen a lot more than they are in the West. These are my thoughts anyway,blogging today from a humble apartment in Hollywood. Let’s go through bamboo forest in 3D New Zealand–why not?!
With ‘Hollywood Maori King’ Cliff Curtis (a proponent of Mau Rākau traditional Maori martial arts) demonstrating that Maori-Kiwi actors can hold their own in Asian-friendly themed martial arts action films in 3D, there is little risk in this strategy. The film Cliff Curtis last appeared in, The Last Airbender grossed: US$ 121,601,062 domestically within the US and $186,901,861 outside of the US. Or total gross: $318,902,923. Or over one third of New Zealand’s entire Tourism earnings in any given year. Not bad. Which incidentally, is also why Cliff Curtis is still New Zealand’s leading Hollywood Maori King. That’s some box office clout, right there in the future direction of New Zealand cinema in 3D featuring Asians and Asian-American actors and Maori / Kiwi actors too in the leads.

America Today – looks like this, from the front page of the Los Angeles Times – Entertainment Capitol of the World.
The LA Times, paints a picture of A Pontificating American King – in President Barack Obama.
Where did I/We/ Whatevz “f*ck up” – is not a good look, especially for a man whose in the hot throne seat, a burning throne he inherited, only two years ago.
This man needs our support not our lynching tendencies. Lynch pin politics are found in New Zealand. A problem solving nation, we always like to help. Soultions are us. Encouragement is Key. Go Obama! Rock it out brotha. Nothing to lose.

James Cameron is Hollywood’s newest novelist. His novels of Avatar themes, he’s turning into Avatar 3D film sequels. James is going to be both J.K Rowling as a best selling novelist and himself (a producer/ director), rolled into one. Smart.
Now there’s some good news for Cameron. Due to “Hobbit law” changes in New Zealand, Cameron’s desire to film his 3D sequels down under, are now facilitated within law changes of New Zealand.
My sister Rachel sent me this news report from TV3. Here it is in full, or go to the original site too, to read.

“The employment law changes demanded by Warner Brothers passed through Parliament under urgency today, drawing a clear distinction between contractors and employees in the film industry.
But while Labour claims the law’s shoddy wording will do more harm than good, Weta Digital – which is now in talks about two new Avatar movies – says anything that gives filmmakers certainty is good.
Labour’s Trevor Mallard gave a graphic example of what he thought the Government had done in bowing to the Warner Brothers studio demand for new employment law over The Hobbit.
“A young Kiwi says, what has happened to New Zealand sovereignty? New Zealand’s sovereignty is finished,” Mr Mallard said today.
After two days of urgency, the bill was passed into law.
The Government says the change – which distinguishes contractors from employees in the film industry – is about preserving jobs.
“If The Hobbit’s had exited here, or the production had exited here, so much of the expertise that is domiciled in New Zealand would have had to move with it and how we would have ever got that back is beyond me,” economic development minister Gerry Brownlee says.

STEVE McQUEEN’S THE BLOB GLOWING IN 3D – HAPPY HALLOWEEN DR BRUCE BRYAN MD – MOONLIGHTING SCREENWRITER
Gosh, sounds like anyone whose ever immigrated to America–the land of consumption and gumption to entertain and turn on a show.
My family doctor in America, although he’s based in Beijing, China most of the year (yeah! It’s like don’t get sick, ever!) is also writing a screen play based partially on The Blob.
The cool thing about the doc’s screenplay, is that everything blobbish and jelly-like in his screenplay is going to glow luminescent. Alien’s are going to get the glow treatment make over, so it’s a very exciting concept and idea. Sounds like a 3D filmmaking opportunity to me. A cool Hollywood movie idea.
This one’s for Dr Bruce Bryan MD and Matthew Bryan MD in training and families. They’re the coolest.

“In a world full of despair, you must still dare to believe”–imagination: Michael Jackson, King of Pop.
Michael Jackson, earned $275 million posthumously for his estate. His star template for entertainment distribution and spin off merch – is still America’s star template all emulate.
GK Films are negotiating to develop a feature film around MJ’s Thriller.
GK are driving the film pitch but Fox 2000, Mandate/Lionsgate and Summit Entertainment are bidding too. The film budget is expected to make $50 million.
The song’s folklore, involving Vincent Price and the town he grew up in–is the basis of the film’s narrative’s plot line.
Thriller songwriter Rod Temperton is up in this mix too. Meanwhile, Cirque du Soleil is in talks to do two live shows based on Jackson’s music.
Montecito partners Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock are developing a film that focuses on MJ’s earlier years as The King of Pop. Peter Schlessel -head of GK films is leading producing efforts on this film idea.
While at Sony Pictures Entertainment, Schlessel made the deal for This Is It!, a big earner for SPE, and it is likely that GK Films will distribute Thriller through its SPE output deal. UTA reps Garelick and Reel Effects, while Paradigm reps Ortega.
This report via Mike Fleming.
My thoughts are – if MJ was using 3D film technology in his This is It! Tour visual arts armory — shouldn’t this film be shot in 3D, like the future of Bollywood film?
Distribution: If Hollywood wants a piece of India’s entertainment than this is a good idea. No other artist has been downloaded more times than MJ in India’s entertainment history of music sales. 24% of all songs in India downloaded are MJ songs. Really Summit Entertainment should bid big, as they are the leading ‘werewolf’/ wolf pack kids in Hollywood.
We live in an age of the 3D Jackson Estate still furthering entertainment models and distributon strategies for American Ent. I dig. Before Jackson died he was all about Thinking Green to save the earth’s enviroment – and he was doing this in 3D.

JOHN KEY SUBSTANTIATES WELLYWOOD AS HOBBITSVILLE 3D COUNTRY AND A SUPPORTIVE TWIN CITY OF HOLLYWOOD’S 3D CINEMA MASTERY AND GREEN FILM LOCATIONS
Quote of the Year: “It was commercial reality. We did the business.”–John Key on bending Hobbit Law, to Warner Brothers recognition, of Sir Peter Jackson and Sir Richard Taylor‘s skills and preference to film The Hobbit 3D film in New Zealand.
New Zealand’s number one man, John Key shines in Hollywood today, with the announcement that New Zealand will restructure law, and contribute monetarily to help facilitate Sir Peter Jackson directed, The Hobbit films 3D filming and production in Middle Earth. This sends a clear message to Bollywood, Hollywood, Europe and Asia, that New Zealand is 3D film production fit for the 2010′s and beyond. Middle Earth is also the home of James Cameron‘s Avatar‘s 3D effects, filming and creation.
Via New York Times, Mr Key says: “I’m delighted we have achieved this result. Making the two movies here will not only safeguard work for thousands of New Zealanders, but will also allow us to follow the success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy in once again promoting New Zealand on the world stage,” Mr. Key said. Video of speech can he found here.
“The industrial issues that have arisen in the past several weeks have highlighted a significant set of concerns for the way in which the international film industry operates here in New Zealand. We will be moving to ensure that New Zealand law in this area is settled to give film producers like Warner Brothers the confidence they need to produce their movies in New Zealand.
To structure the right deal to keep The Hobbit in New Zealand, new legislation is being introduced Thursday to clarify the difference between an employee and a contractor. The change in law would affect only the film industry.
Aotearoa/ New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Mr. Key said that the green paradise nation would offset $10 million of Warner’s marketing costs as the government agreed to a joint venture with the studio.
Mr Key also threw in an additional tax rebate for big budget films made in the country, making production companies now eligible for up to $7.5 million extra per picture–based on box office sales. New Zealand currently offers a 15 % rebate on money spent on major movies being produced within this paradise nation’s shores.
The UK Guardian reports that, had not Warner Bros and the New Zealand government come to an agreement, “Economists had said the loss of the production could cost the country’s film industry as much as $1.5bn and damage it in the long term.” Mr Keys also said via The Guardian, “”Making the movies here will not only safeguard work for thousands of New Zealanders.”" A much welcomed break for New Zealand’s economy struggling with one of the highest E.E.C debts, currently. The news was much welcomed.
Although it is not know if any Maori and Polynesian actors have been cast in the film in key roles to date, the Guardian reports: “The Office star Martin Freeman set to portray the title character, Bilbo Baggins – a homely Hobbit who in Tolkien’s tale is bamboozled into joining a thrilling adventure by a wizard named Gandalf. Richard Armitage, of BBC TV series Spooks, will play the role of Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of the dwarves.”
Good stuff. What a day for Hobbit lovers of Hobbitsville entertainment. And not a bad couple of days work either from Prime Minister Keys in his role of Minister of Tourism too. That deserves a beer or three in Hobbit fashion. Nice teamwork for the Prime Minister, Warner Bros, and our two Sirs who create Hobbits and a film industry working for and in tandem while reflecting back to Hollywood, from the other side of the world in New Zealand. Teamwork and mastery of a win-win relationship. Super heroes are being made in New Zealand in cinema texts and 3D cinema –for the world. Let’s go China and 3D action Chinese films in NZ.

PRIME MINISTER JOHN KEY ON SIR PETER JACKSON’S 3D HOBBIT FILMMAKING IN MIDDLE EARTH VIA THE MAORI NEWS
Hobbit News from Hollywood, California USA:
We all love Sir Peter Jackson in Hollywood. He’s a box office heavy weight for this California City and a Hollywood Oscars King to boot. New Zealanders probably love Sir Peter a wee bit more than even Hollywood does. His early films have been studied many times over, by the New Zealand people just as much as his big blockbuster films have been viewed and enjoyed.
Sir Peter Jackson is a cultural hero of Middle Earth. Sort of like the Sir Edmund Hilary of Cinema to his home town of Wellywood.
However, Kiwis (New Zealanders) love our Prime Minister even more than the remarkable Sir Peter. He’s The Kiwi King. From the home and heart of Hobbitsville, here’s Prime Minister John Key speaking on Hobbit filmmaking in 3D, in this video news footage, addressing the recent actors’ union challenge via an Australian actors union that could have swayed Warner Bros. to move the film to another location. Such a move could have threatened the future of films being made in New Zealand by the best directors in the world.
This news report via Te Karere – Maori News shows a King in full support of what his filmmaking star director of Hobbits wants within his capacities as a leader who protects great artists, like Sir Peter of Middle Earth and the heart and soul of the magic that they create in their art.
Hollywood great, James Cameron‘s Avatar filmed in Wellywood, so let’s hope Warner Bros relationship with Hollywood’s collaborating twin filmmaking city remains strong, in producing Hollywood’s no.1 grossing box office films of all time globally between Hollywood and Wellywood.
The proven relationship to date is a match made in cross-cultural, box-office, results-generating heaven. Excellent filmmaking synergy.
Update: 10.26.10 @4.41 pm: TVNZ reports: “We will have to make an assessment about whether we think a clarification in the law would assist New Zealand economically,” Key said. “If we do, we might make some changes.”
“The Government has also admitted it is prepared to move “at the margins” on subsidies for the two films but would not enter a bidding war to match what was on offer internationally,” says New Zealand’s Prime Minister.

I present Taylor today as food for thought for Maori and Polynesian action stars, who are Hollywood worthy as entertainers also. Remembering that Maori have practiced Mau Rakau martial arts for centuries in Middle Earth, Aotearoa/ New Zealand. We have this history for 3D cinema’s authenticity as Art and Entertainment texts of Hollywood and Wellywood worthy cultural significance.
This thought being presented in Hollywood today for the land of Hobbits and their Oscar-holding creators and auteurs of Middle Earth to mull over. Namely Sir Peter Jackson and Sir Richard Taylor with casting lenses of wisdom and foresight worn in New Zealand, to grow existing and new talent and film markets from New Zealand shores showcasing all of New Zealand’s diverse potential in film growth to our economy. Courage to develop new Kiwi action stars, who have the potential to develop new action film genres that appeal to Asian markets.

Reports the LA Times today: “Following a multitude of delays, Warner Bros. and co-financing partner Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. have agreed to start production in February on the two Hobbit films (budget $500 million) that serve as a prequel to the blockbuster “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, people familiar with the situation said.
Only one hitch remains, however, and it may not necessarily be a small one. The studios are waiting to announce the greenlight because a labor dispute between director Sir Peter Jackson and the Screen Actors Guild and other performers unions is not yet resolved. The unions have advised members not to work on “The Hobbit” because they claim it’s a non-union production. The parties are hopeful that a resolution is imminent, which would pave the way for the movies to be shot in Jackson’s home country of New Zealand, where “Lord of the Rings” was made and preproduction for the new films is underway.
The first “Hobbit” movie is scheduled to be released in December 2012 and the second the following holiday season, both in 3-D.
