Wow! Wow! Wow! What a voice! What a song! Absolutely phenomenal!

Although the album sales (Bionic) were far below expectations, some even speaking of a big failure, this song – “You Lost Me” – is likely to offset the poor results of the new album and to sweeten the disapointment caused by “Not Myself Tonight”.

And if you are a fan of Christina Aguilera you will want to see her first movie – Burlesque – which will be released this autumn.

Avatar is a creativity source for other 3D projects

“This is the first week we are not thinking about ‘Avatar’,” Landau told reporters at a conference sponsored by the Israeli technology firm Matrix a week after the movie lost out to the Iraq war drama “The Hurt Locker” for best picture and director at the Oscars.

“We are talking about an ‘Avatar’ sequel as well as a small love story called ‘The Dive’ and a movie called ‘Fantastic Voyage’.”

It seems that the two planned one more project called “Battle Angel Alita”based on a Japanese novel set in the future and centering on a young female cyborg’s quest for self-discovery.

“We always said if the movie (Avatar) was successful we would do an ‘Avatar 2’ but we have to find the right story. Jim Cameron has done sequels before … He will only do one if he believes it will be as good as the first,” said Landau.

The movie had sales around the world summing $2.6 billion, “Avatar” eclipsing Cameron’s Oscar-winning blockbuster “Titanic”, also produced by Landau.
Nevertheless, producer Landau says that he isn’t disappointed that “Avatar,” which won three Oscars in technical categories, failed to net the major prizes.

“We made ‘Avatar’ to communicate to the masses, not to please 6,000 Academy members,” he said.
