Empire VIP Event: In Conversation With James Cameron

James Cameron

by Sophie Butcher |

Want to be in the room with one of cinema’s greatest ever directors? AND get to hear him answer your questions?

With the cinema release of Avatar: The Way Of Water just weeks away (Friday 16 December), we are hosting a very, very special in-person event with the legendary James Cameron, exclusively for Empire VIPs.

On the evening of Monday 5 December at a central London location, Empire’s Chris Hewitt will be joined by James Cameron for an extended Q&A event. The director will be spilling the beans on his highly-anticipated follow-up to the Oscar-winning Avatar, and looking back at his incredible career so far – from The Terminator, to Titanic, and everything in between. He will also be answering questions from VIP club members – so get your thinking caps on!

This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the man behind some of the biggest and best movies ever in person, and hear him do a deep dive into how he created the world of Pandora, the Avatar sequels, and more.

Can’t make it to London? VIPs will receive early access to the audio from the event via Empire’s Spoiler Special podcast channel – so you’ll still get to hear it before everyone else!

Already an Empire VIP? Mark your calendars, start thinking of your questions (you will receive an email containing a link to submit these!), and keep an eye on your inbox on 30 November for the official invite to arrive.
