The first official publicity photos for Terminator: Genisys haven’t been great, frankly speaking. But they did leave us wanting to see more, if only to reassure ourselves that the actual movie will look much better.

Sadly, we have a bit of a wait until that can happen since the Terminator: Genisys trailer isn’t here quite yet. In the meantime, though, you can whet your appetite with these new Terminator: Genisys storyboards, which tease a big battle sequence involving John Connor (Jason Clarke) and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney).

See the Terminator Genisys storyboards after the jump.

Star Wars Episode VII IMAX

We’ve known for a long time that director JJ Abrams and cinematographer Daniel Mindel are shooting Star Wars Episode VII on 35mm film. Over the summer we learned something else: at least some portion of the film was shot on IMAX cameras. The photo that confirmed that data (above) showed an IMAX film camera, not one of the new digital systems used by Michael Bay on Transformers: Age of Extinction. So we know that the production is sticking with film.

Now we have a bit more info on the particulars of the Star Wars Episode VII IMAX shoot. As it turns out, there might be only one big IMAX sequence. Read More »

So Is ‘Terminator: Genisys’ a Reboot or What?

Terminator cast header

We know how Terminator: Genisys fits into the Terminator franchise in our world. It’s the fifth feature, and the first since 2009′s Terminator Salvation. What’s harder to suss out is how the story fits into the Terminator mythology. Is it a reboot? A sequel? Or something else entirely?

The answer, it turns out, might be “all of the above.” Laeta Kalogridis (who wrote the script with Patrick Lussier) confirms Terminator: Genisys isn’t rewriting the Terminator saga, but following an alternate timeline. Hit the jump for more on the Terminator Genisys reboot question, plus lots more Terminator Genisys images.

Star Wars Halloween Special

In 1978, the Star Wars Holiday Special aired on CBS. It quickly became one of the most infamously horrible pieces of Star Wars history. (Until the prequels, that is, hey yo!) Aside from a cartoon that introduced us to Boba Fett, the television special was notoriously bad, showing us Life Day on the Wookiee home world of Kashyyyk where Bea Arthur sings musical numbers. Anyway, moving on…

In a new weird move of strange corporate synergy, Disney is going to air a Star Wars Halloween Special… on ESPN 2 on October 30th 2014. Will this new Star Wars television special go down in flames like the previous Star Wars Holiday special? Details after the jump.

Daniel H. Wilson Offers a ‘Robopocalypse’ Update

Robopocalypse status

What’s up with the Steven Spielberg film Robopocalypse? At one point it was all set to be his next film, but that was back in 2012. The script was being developed by Spielberg and Drew Goddard as Daniel H. Wilson wrote his novel. Actors such as Chris Hemsworth, Anne Hathaway and Ben Whishaw were all said to be in line for roles in the film about — as the title implies — “a global war between man and machine.” But in early 2013 the film was pushed back to development status, with no indication of what the future might hold. Now there’s a small Robopocalypse status update from Wilson. Read More »
