Avatar sequel teaser trailer

It's here! After thirteen years and countless delays, Avatar's long-awaited sequel has a release date and a teaser trailer.

"Avatar: The Way of Water" brings back Zoe Saldana as Neytiri, Sam Worthington as Jake Sully, and Sigourney Weaver will return in a new role.

Oona Chaplin, Kate Winslet, and Michelle Yeoh are newcomers to the franchise.

The original 2009 film was an instant megahit and remains the highest-grossing film ever at over $2.8 million.

In an interview with Variety last year, Director James Cameron said they were able to combine some shooting for parts 2 and 3 to cut down on time and travel needed for the subsequent sequels.

In that interview, he explained, "I said, let's just treat it like it's a six-hour miniseries and we're only going to go to Frankfurt once. We're going to shoot all the scenes from '2' and '3' at the same time. That was more or less the motif."

"Avatar: The Way of Water" is out on December 16.

Baby Boy Born during Metallica Concert

This little guy will always have the best story about his birth.

Three-day-old Luan Figueiró was born at a Metallica concert in Curitiba, Brazil, while the band played “Enter Sandman.”

On May 7, at 39 weeks pregnant, Joice M Figueiró went into labour during the show.

An ambulance arrived, but baby Luan wasn’t waiting around, and he was born while the band was closing their set.

Joice shared the happy news on Instagram, and the band has since re-shared her awesome announcement.

Rock on, Baby Luan!

Dirty Dancing Sequel brings us back to the Catskills

The director of the Dirty Dancing sequel promises not to ruin our childhood.

Jonathan Levine has been tapped to direct the sequel starring our "Baby" Jennifer Grey.

Levine says Dirty dancing is one of his favorite movies and can't wait to collaborate with Grey on the sequel.

The new film takes us back to Kellermans in New York's Catskills during a summer in the nineties.

The coming-of-age story will centre on Baby's daughter and feature music from the 90's era, including 90's hip hop, Liz Phair and Alanis Morisette.

One hole that can't be filled is that of Patrick Swayze, who played Johnny in the original 1987 film. Swayze died of pancreatic cancer in 2009.

Levine says Johnny will be a part of the story somehow by having his presence in the film

Production is scheduled to begin this year.
