    "either" to connect an event in the past and future.

    Suppose someone hasn't watched the last movie by an American director James Cameron but is totally confident that his upcoming movie will be great. And being his fan, is pretty sure that the last one couldn't have been bad.

    Is the following statement acceptable?

    "The new James Cameron movie will be great. And I believe his last wasn't bad either."

    I have doubt regarding usage of "either" to connect to an event that may/may not happen.(That is finding the movie great when it is finally released and he watches it).

    It's OK. James Cameron is Canadian, not American.
