We’re Getting A New James Cameron Film This Summer

It involves advanced gadgetry and will transport you to a whole new world.

We don’t get new James Cameron films all that often, largely because each new one requires the invention of some new technology and must change the game in some fashion. It’s been five years since Avatar rebuilt the popular culture landscape in its own image, so we’re probably about due.

Unfortunately, the next Avatar chapter won’t come out for another few years, but in the meantime, we can enjoy a different sort of new James Cameron film this summer. Variety reports that James Cameron’s DEEPSEA CHALLENGE 3D will get an August 8 release. It’s actually directed by John Bruno, Andrew Wight, and Ray Quint, but does star James Cameron and feature advanced gadgetry, so close enough.

Summer Movie Release Schedule

Yes, Scarlett Johansson wakes up with superpowers and takes no prisoners, but the season isn’t totally about would-be action blockbusters. Philip Seymour Hoffman gifts us with two posthumous performances, as a blue-collar American loser and as a powerful German spy. Documentaries explore a dizzying range of topics, including legal marijuana, the war in Afghanistan, breast-feeding and the Koch brothers. And climate change rears its plot-driving head, ready to replace midcentury nuclear testing as the villain in sci-fi and futurist fantasies.

While it’s raining sequels — about Spider-Man, Transformers, Expendables, talking turtles, talking apes and animated dragons — at least two directors are brave enough to take on material from Broadway: Clint Eastwood and Roman Polanski. Road movies are going in all directions. Filmmakers reveal their fascination with evil — its nature, our moral duty to fight it and its embodiment in a witch with perfect cheekbones (Angelina Jolie). And Woody Allen goes back to France. It’s going to be an eventful few months.

2014 Summer Movie Preview: This season brings superhero blockbusters, animated sequels and even a musical from Clint Eastwood

Also coming to theaters is ‘Maleficent,’ ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ ‘Transformers: Edge of Extinction,’ ‘Think Like a Man Too’ and ’22 Jump Street.’

“Polar Vortex” sounds like a comic book villain, but that wintry phrase, and all the icy weather, has ended just in time for the movies to be rescued by superheroes — along with talking apes, bawdy sex tapes, wild cops, and other high points of this summer’s sizzling flicks.

Release dates are subject to change, but one thing isn’t: the thrill of springing into Hollywood’s action-packed summer movie season.
