For Avatar: The Way of Water filmmaker James Cameron , making a sequel to the world’s highest-grossing movie ever was “not a no-brainer” with the original 2009 movie providing “a lot to live up to.” Cameron was speaking to press ahead of Tuesday night’s world premiere of The Way of Water here in London, where the movie was enthusiastically received. Said Cameron, “It seems obvious to everyone, ‘Oh, you just made a bunch of money, go do a sequel.’ Well, Steven Spielberg didn’t do a sequel to ET , the highest grossing film in its time.

A long-in-the-works bill to allow news publishers and broadcast stations to jointly negotiate with tech giants for their content was left out of a massive defense spending bill, diminishing its prospects for passage by the end of this Congress. The Journalism Competition and Preservation Act would create a “safe harbor” from antitrust laws for a period of eight years for newspapers, broadcast stations and digital journalism outlets.

It is intended to boost local news outlets, which have withered in the face of online competition. But the tech industry has amped up its opposition against the legislation. As efforts were underway to include the bill in a massive defense spending bill this week, Facebook on Monday released a statement in which it said that it would be “forced to consider removing news from our platform altogether” rather than “submit to government … [Read more...] about Journalism Bill Left Out Of End-Of-Year Legislation After Facebook Threat, Industry Pushback
