Details on the Terminator Genesis plot are scarce. We know all the actors who’ve been cast in the 2015 reboot, the director, and the writers, yet how it all ties together remains a mystery. That mystery could slowly be unraveling, though, if we’re to believe a new report.
Possible plot points from Terminator Genesis have leaked online and they describe the film as kind of a Back to the Future Part II of the series. According to the rumors, this new film will jump between, and interact with timelines of the first Terminator film, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and bounce even earlier than that, with Sarah Connor appearing as a child. Read some possible Terminator Genesis plot details below. Read More »

This is what happens when a studio paints itself into a corner. Paramount co-financed Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah with the expectation that it would be able to market the film to faith-based audiences. But, surprise, surprise, what the studio got is a Darren Aronofsky film — something that isn’t exactly a strict adaptation of the book of Genesis.
Paramount and various religious groups have engaged in different ways over the past few months as the studio has courted a religious audience. Various cuts of the film have been tested, and the studio has been more aggressive in pushing the movie to the faith-based audience than a general one. But a couple weeks ago it seems like truth dawned: this is a Darren Aronosfky movie, and that’s not going to change. We’ll see his cut in theaters, and that’s all that really matters.
But one group claiming to advocate for religious audiences and broadcasters has pressured Paramount into adding a note to the film’s marketing, explaining that this is not the literal story of Noah, which instead can be found in Genesis. Read More »

Let’s turn the spotlight on one theme park attraction that’s here and another coming in the future. First up, Disneyland Paris held a big presentation for stockholders to show off the brand new Ratatouille thrill ride opening later this year. The full video of the event is online, along with some very cool concept images and construction photos from inside the attraction.
Next up, Star Trek. A few weeks back we reported Paramount is creating a massive theme park in Spain. Rango, Spiderwick Chronicles, Sleepy Hollow, Mission: Impossible, Grease and more will all be represented. Most exciting is that a full Star Trek area will be part of the park. A bunch of concept art has been released and you can check it out below. Read More »
Anchorman 2 hit theaters at the end of last year, and it will soon be back in cinemas in a completely different cut assembled from alternate takes. But that’s not the end of the Anchorman 2 variant offerings: the Blu-ray release will feature three versions of the film. In addition to the original theatrical release and the second cut coming soon, the disc features an unrated version of the film. There will also be hours of bonus footage, including a reported 90 minutes of additional alternate takes. So that’s nearly four versions of Anchorman 2, which means that at least one poor editor probably lost his mind trying to make sense of it all.
The blu specs are after the break. Read More »

Between Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, and her Golden Globes hosting stints, Tina Fey‘s TV career is nothing short of stellar. But her track record with movies has been somewhat spottier. Sure, Mean Girls is a classic and Date Night wasn’t bad, but Baby Mama and Admission were both forgettable duds, and the jury’s still out on Muppets Most Wanted.
Thankfully, her newest role sounds fairly promising. Fey is attached to star in and produce Paramount’s The Taliban Shuffle, scripted by a 30 Rock writer, based on a journalist’s memoir of her time in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Hit the jump for more details on this latest gig.

In today’s Hollywood, violence is complicated topic. A single violent scene in an otherwise timid movie, if shot in a graphic way, can get a film an R rating. On the other hand, if the violence isn’t graphic, a filmmaker can kill millions of people and get a PG-13. Is one worse than the other? Is the death of many, if it shown without blood, less frightening than the gory death of one?
This issue comes to light most often in blockbuster movies. Films like Man of Steel or The Avengers contain wanton destruction, yet are considered family-friendly due their rating and genre. It’s with that knowledge actor Titus Welliver, best known for being the Man in Black on Lost, probably said the following about his upcoming film, Transformers: Age of Extinction. He called the film darker and said “it’s not a kids movie, I’ll tell you that much.” Read More »
