20th Century Fox have updated the release dates of several upcoming projects, moving Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant forward to May 2017, dating James Cameron’s Avatar 2 and- frustratingly- pushing Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman sequel back from June to October.
At the 20th Century Fox panel at CinemaCon, director James Cameron has provided an update on the upcoming Avatar sequels, revealing that instead of the previously-reported three movies, there will now be four sequels.

And we’ve done that so that everything tracks throughout the three films. We’re not just going to do one and then make up another one and another one after that and parallel with that, we’re doing all the design.

James Cameron has set Sigourney Weaver to return in the three Avatar sequels scheduled to begin production later this year, the Oscar-winning filmmaker announced today. Weaver joins previously announced cast returnees Sam Worthington, Zoë Saldana and Stephen Lang.

Marking a significant expansion of his already ambitious plans for the much-anticipated Avatar sequels, Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Cameron announced today that the films have grown in number from two to three.
