The actor will blow your mind in Whiplash, and he’s likely to be a great addition to the Terminator series as well. (Because, really, when is Simmons ever not welcome? He’s entertaining even in the relatively woeful The Ladykillers.) Now Simmons is speaking up about Terminator: Genisys. He reveals something that probably won’t be too surprising for anyone who has been following along with the sci-fi series: this reboot is a love story. Read More »

Steven Soderbergh‘s “retirement” has been a delight to follow. Freed of the demands of film directing, he’s found time to do all sorts of other things, from an Off-Broadway stage play to a Cinemax TV series to a Twitter novella to a Gus Van Sant / Alfred Hitchcock Psychos mash-up. His latest endeavor, released today, is a silent, black-and-white version of Raiders of the Lost Ark.
In an accompanying statement, Soderbergh explains that he undertook the exercise in an attempt to better understand staging. But of course the real reason this happened is “because Steven Soderbergh.” Hit the jump to see the Steven Soderbergh Raiders of the Lost Ark cut.
