Heritage

I love behind-the-scenes photography. The Fox Archives has gorgeous portraits, scene stills and Fox lot photography, but the photographs that depict what happens off camera are my personal favorite.

Film

What’s better than three “Avatar” sequels? Four of them. At the end of 20th Century Fox Film’s CinemaCon presentation today, filmmaker and driving force behind the first “Avatar” film James Cameron made a surprise appearance and announced that there will be four sequels to the highest-grossing film of all time, one more than previously announced. The sequels are scheduled to hit theaters Christmas 2018, 2020, 2022 and 2023.
