James Cameron’s Universes Come To Life

James Cameron's films always make a stylistic impact, from "Titanic"'s Heart of the Ocean to the blue-skinned, pseudo-feline Na'vi people in "Avatar," so it's only natural that someone would eventually arrange to depict his instantly recognizable scenes in a high fashion way. In celebration of "Titanic"'s 3D re-release, Harper's Bazaar welcomes us to the world…

Zoe Saldana Got The Literal Blues After The Release Of “Avatar”

"The year after 'Avatar' was just emotionally overwhelming. I was traveling all over the world, waking up in different time zones. Your body gets exhausted, and by the end of the year I just collapsed ... I was sitting in my hotel room, and I couldn't stop crying. I couldn't stay awake. I must have…

A New Take On “Something Blue”

I was hoping that "Avatar" fever had died down, but Wu Lingyuan, China, is keeping it alive. This region contains the mountain ranges in the movie, and enterprising citizens have found a way to turn that into dollar signs by offering "Avatar" wedding packages. The view is gorgeous, but takers are a little less excited…

James Cameron Sued By Unpublished Sci-Fi Romance Author

"Avatar" was a mega-money maker for all involved, but author Kelly Van seems to think she was left out of the pay day to the tune of a quarter of a million dollars. Why? She claims that James Cameron stole ideas from her unpublished sci-fi romance novel, Sheila the Warrior: the Damned. She's filed a…

Reach Out & Touch (A Porn Star) In 3-D

The future of pornography is here, and it's more graphic than ever before. Blame (or thank, depending on how you feel about the genre), the success of Hollywood mega hits like "Avatar" and "Alice In Wonderland" for what some predict will take porn to the next level, literally. French director Tom Sridix has been working…

“Avatar” Takes On The Runway

We've talked about the "Alice In Wonderland" impact on the runway, but it looks like this year's Oscar darling has the Disney classic beat. "Avatar," the James Cameron flick about big blue aliens and their planet (OK, so I fell asleep during the movie), raked in over $2 billion so it was only a matter…

LARPers Get Blue For “Avatar”

As a closet nerd, I've secretly wanted to at least know someone who does LARPing, otherwise known as "live action role playing." So, I was pretty excited when I saw Live "Avatar" Role-Playing featuring the Na'vi people of Hometree, Wisconsin, frolicking in the forest with the tree of souls and tsahaylu-ing (making a sacred bond)…

“Dear John” Defeats “Avatar” At The Box Office

This weekend, after seven weeks at the top of the box office, "Avatar" dropped down to the second most profitable movie at the megaplex. The film that beat blue alien ass? "Dear John," the Nicholas Sparks-penned love story starring Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum. And I helped contribute to its success -- it made $32.4…

“Avatar”-Inspired 3D Makeup Coming Soon

The easiest way to give yourself an "Avatar" makeover is to paint your entire face blue or make out with a member of the Blue Man Group.

Zoe Saldana, 31, is better known for playing a sexy blue alien in "Avatar," but now she can add Avon lady to her resume.

Feeling Down? Perhaps You Just Have The “Avatar” Blues

There are certain things sure to send one reeling into a pit of depression—getting laid off from a job, the death of a friend or family member, a particularly wrenching breakup, seeing the movie "Avatar."

What We Really Want To Know About Na’vi Sex

If the sex scene in "Avatar" disappointed you, you're not alone. James Cameron spent a quarter of a billion dollars on special effects, but there wasn't even a hint of damn Na'vi peen. (Apparently, they screw by sticking their tails together?) Zoe Saldana, the actress who played Neytiri, has a little explanation: "...Because [Cameron] wa…

The 5 Reasons Why Women Should See “Avatar”

This weekend I went to see "Avatar," James Cameron's epic movie that has been, like, 12 years in the making. Originally I had no desire to see this film. Though I love a good sci-fi movie (I'm a proud "Star Trek" nerd), the trailer made it look hokey and I couldn't for the life of…

Quotable: Fantasy Women Are Easier To Deal With

"Vampirella was so hot I used to buy every comic I could get my hands on. The fact she didn’t exist didn’t bother me because we have these quintessential female images in our mind, and in the case of the male mind, they’re grossly distorted. When you see something that reflects your id, it work…
