Director James Cameron is apparently tired of the Avengers movies. The Avatar director was promoting his new documentary series AMC Visionaries: James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction on Saturday and Avengers: Infinity War came up.
“Not that I don’t love the movies,” he told reporters, according to IndieWire. “It’s just, come on, guys, there are other stories to tell besides, you know, hyper-gonadal males without families doing death-defying things for two hours and wrecking cities in the process. It’s like, oy.”
Cameron will be keeping himself busy with his own sci-fi franchises. He has been planning on the sixth and supposedly final Terminator movie and is still aiming to make four Avatar films. On the new Avatar movies, Cameron said, “I found myself as a father of five, starting to think about what would an Avatar story be like if it was a family drama, if it was The Godfather…We still want to show you things that you haven’t even seen or imagined, but the story is very different. It’s a continuation of the same characters…but what happens when warriors who are willing to go on suicide charges and leap off cliffs, what happens when they grow up and have their own kids? It becomes a very different story.”
Cameron's six-part Story of Science Fiction will premiere on April 30. The show will cover a variety of sci-fi related topics like artificial intelligence and aliens. The docu-series will also include interviews with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Will Smith, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, Sigourney Weaver, Steven Spielberg, and George Lucas.

During Utah Jazz's 115-102 win over Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday, Ricky Rubio became the first Jazz player since John Stockton in 2001 to achieve a postseason triple-double. The guard finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds, and 10 assists. “Having my name next to his name is an honor,” Rubio said, according to ESPN. “I don't know what else to say. It's huge. Have huge respect for him, and playing here is great because I know how important a point guard he is for this franchise.”
Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook wasn't too impressed with Rubio and thinks he will be able to take him during Monday's Game 4.
“He made some shots,” Westbrook said in the post-game conference. “Too comfortable. But I'ma shut that shit off next game, though. Guarantee that.”
Rubio's numbers were just a slight bump from Game 2, where he finished with 22 points, nine assists, and seven rebounds. “I think the first two games, I wasn't being effective in the midrange area,” he said. “It's been something I've been working on. I felt good about, but it wasn't going in. But tonight, it felt good seeing the first couple go in. It's just the way we played. We got open shots, and it's easy to make shots when you are open.”
Westbrook was seen receiving treatment on his upper body during the second half of Saturday's game but no injury has been reported. Now, the Thunder is down 2-1 heading to Game 4 in Utah with a very real possibility that the Carmelo Anthony-Paul George-Westbrook superteam could be bounced in the first round.

Thankfully we got a firsthand look at Virgil Abloh’s first day as Louis Vuitton’s new menswear designer, via Louis Vuitton’s Instagram Story. In the clip below—reposted by Hypebeast—we see Abloh getting comfortable in his monogram-adorned office, complete with a Louis Vuitton and Supreme collaborative carpeting. Surrounded by his new colleagues, he takes a meeting where he discusses what motivates him as a designer, while looking at some product imagery.
“The biggest goal … is to start so people can understand the new vocabulary.” the designer told the room. “I wanna introduce a hardware that’s native to the garment.”
While you can’t tell the direction of his design—many of the images are blurred out—it looks like Abloh might be incorporating characteristics of his label Off-White™, with a note that reads “Outerwear.”
Abloh was named Louis Vuitton’s new menswear designer in March; the news was first reported by the New York Times.
“I feel elated,” Abloh told the Times. “This opportunity to think through what the next chapter of design and luxury will mean at a brand that represents the pinnacle of luxury was always a goal in my wildest dreams. And to show a younger generation that there is no one way anyone in this kind of position has to look is a fantastically modern spirit in which to start.” Abloh celebrated the moment by posting a picture of a Louis Vuitton monogram trunk on Instagram.
