James Cameron’s new Avatar trilogy may have been delayed recently due to production complications, but that isn’t stopping him from signing up people for his other projects. The Wrap reports that Jennifer Lawrence and Hunger Games director Francis Lawrence have boarded The Dive. To be produced by Cameron, the project tells the story of Audrey Mestre and Francisco Ferraras, a real-world couple the set records by freediving as deep as possible without the help of any external breathing apparatus. Jennifer Lawrence will be played Mestre, who died in 2002 during one of the diving attempts.

Cameron, of course, is no stranger to the water or traveling to the ocean depths. 1989’s The Abyss took place on an oil rig based on the ocean floor, and…

Seth Rogen and James Franco livetweet The Interview just three days after release

It’s a fairly regular occurrence now for actors and directors to livetweet along with their movies months or years after their theatrical release, but Seth Rogen and James Franco’s tweet-a-long viewing of The Interview, held today at 2pm using the hashtag #TheInterview, is unprecedented.

Rogen, who co-directed the movie, noted the speed at which the movie made it to the small screen.

Daniel Craig is signed on for just one more Bond film after 2015’s Spectre, which means a new actor will soon step into the role of 007. And it seems like almost everyone wants to see Idris Elba portray the martini-sipping special agent.

Earlier this morning, the Englishman slyly addressed the rumors on Twitter: “Isn’t 007 supposed to handsome? Glad you think I’ve got a shot!”

Elba has long been rumored to be the next Bond, and thanks to the Sony Pictures hack, we know that executives at the highest levels of the company have at least considered the actor for the role. A…

James Bond’s submarine car is on sale on eBay for $1 million

Among James Bond’s many glorious gadgets over the years, one that stands out even to this day is his submarine car from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977): a modified 1977 Lotus Espirit S1 sportscar that was shown driving directly from land into water. In real life, there was no such transforming amphibious vehicle: seven different cars were used to create the submarine scenes in the film — one of them being little more than an Espirit-shaped shell wrapped around a working submarine. Now you can own one of the three other remaining land models for a fitting $ 1 million. Hot Rod City, a vintage car restoration and resale shop in Las Vegas, is selling a prop Lotus Espirit from the film on eBay. Unfortunately, the vehicle doesn’t actually drive…
