Are you keenly anticipating the "Avatar" sequels? You're going to have to wait a little longer - two years longer than previously anticipated according to EntertainmentWise.
Speaking at a screening for "Titanic 3D", Producer Jon Landau confirmed it would be a good wait before we return to Pandora - "We are excitedly working on it as we speak and it will be four or so years before it will be out"
This would seem to push back the release of the second film to 2016, quite a jump from the December 2014 & 2015 dates for the two sequels that were previously being targeted.
Landau is confident however it'll be a better film than the first - “We are excited and we have a lot of the same team working with us, some great design and ideas and some great themes hopefully.”
"The Hunger Games" and "Orphan" actress Isabelle Fuhrman is in negotiations to join M. Night Shyamalan's sci-fi action adventure "After Earth" at Sony Pictures and Overbrook Entertainment says Heat Vision.
Will and Jaden Smith are set to star as a father and son who crash-land on Earth a millennia after mankind has abandoned the planet. The crash leaves the elder Smith badly injured, and it's up to the boy to find help in what is now a strange and dangerous place. Zoe Kravitz and Sophie Okonedo also star.
M. Night Shyamalan is directing from a script by Gary Whitta and Stephen Gaghan. Shooting kicks off in March in locations in Pennsylvania and Utah.

There's also a lot of school class scenes set around the training school on the island of Tasmania which has been privatised, and the buildup to four 'Grand Slam' races held in London, Sydney, New York City and across Italy.
At last report Blaise Hemingway was adapting the script with commercials director Fredrik Bond the top choice to direct. Now, "X2" and "Superman Returns" co-scribe Dan Harris has come onboard to work on the script which the studio has been trying to tackle since 2004. Alfred Gough and Miles Millar are producing.
Jaimie Alexander is an actress on the rise at the moment – thanks in large part to her role as Asgardian warrior Lady Sif in Marvel’s Thor last year. While Alexander has big things on the horizon – such as a starring role in the upcoming Arnold Schwarzenegger comback vehicle, The Last Stand - comic book fans are likely more interested in her upcoming appearances in Marvel movies like Thor 2 - and of course, this summer’s superhero team-up, The Avengers.
Alexander recently spoke to MTV about both films, and talked a bit about where they might take Sif. On the Thor 2 front: the actress confirmed the news that Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor will be helming the Thor ...

Fun fact: Movie theaters have a lot of input into when they want to sell tickets to films showing in their theaters.
After the success of The Dark Knight Rises IMAX prologue, which previewed before Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, some theaters apparently thought that they could continue the momentum of the high ticket sales motivated by Dark Knight Rises fandom, by selling advance tickets to the actual premiere of the film this upcoming summer. As it turns out, they were right.
With still half a year to go until its official July 20th release date, The Dark Knight Rises has already sold out the IMAX midnight premieres in both the AMC Loews Lincoln Square theater in NYC, and all but two handicap slots at the AMC CityWalk ...
