James Cameron Throws Shade at J.J. Abrams & 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens'

Avatar director James Cameron just made his feelings known about J.J. Abrams‘ film Star Wars: The Force Awakens in a new video interview with Keely Stinner.

“I have to say that I felt that George [Lucas]‘s group of six films had more innovative visual imagination, and this film was more a retrenchment to things you had seen before and characters you had seen before,” James said about the new film. “It took a few baby steps forward with new characters. So, for me, the jury is out. I want to see where they go with it.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens happens to be the third grossing film of all time, behind two of James‘ films (Titanic and Avatar).

Aaron Paul Says a Magic Trick Ruined His Audition for 'Cloverfield'

Aaron Paul rocks a fedora as he heads out of the Chateau Marmont on Wednesday evening (June 1) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The 36-year-old actor recently told a hilarious story during Actors on Actors about how a magic trick ruined his audition for Cloverfield in front of J.J. Abrams.

Aaron explained that while on the set of Mission Impossible: III with J.J. the two had bonded over their love of magic. When J.J. encouraged Aaron to do a card trick, he obliged, even though he knew it was going to fail and it lead to a totally awkward moment on set.

A year later when Aaron went to audition for J.J.‘s film Cloverfield, the director brought up the magic trick and it totally threw Aaron off.

“He has me tell the story about the card trick and now I’m super awkward. He’s like, ‘Now, let’s get started,’ and I start doing this monologue and I completely lose my train of thought and I stop and I apologize to J.J. He’s like ‘That’s okay. Thanks for coming in.’ I’m like ‘See ya’ and I walked out. It was awful,” he laughed.

J.J. Abrams Reveals Major 'Star Wars' Secret About Rey's Parents

J.J. Abrams just revealed a major hint about Rey’s parents while speaking at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival on Friday (April 15).

The Star Wars: The Force Awakens director revealed that Rey’s parents weren’t featured in Episode VII.

“Rey’s parents are not in Episode VII. So I can’t possibly say in this moment who they are. But I will say it is something that Rey thinks about, too,” he explained.

This seems to rule out the popular theory that Rey is the daughter of Luke Skywalker or Han Solo.

Fans will have to wait until Episode VIII hits theaters on December 15, 2017 for more information.
