Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator Genisys interview

In July of last year, I visited the set of Terminator: Genisys. You can hear what I learned while on set here. While on set, we talked to the cast and crew of the new film. Over the next few days we’ll be running transcripts of these on set interviews. Today we begin with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who reprises his role as a T-800. But this is a T-800 like we’ve never seen before, in this new film set within a divergent timeline. Read the full Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator Genisys interview after the jump.

Idris Elba star trek 3

In the rebooted Star Trek franchise, it’s all about the villains. Or at least pre-release, it is. Everyone knows who the main characters are but there’s always a question of who they’ll be tangling with. In the second film, the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch’s character was a particular spot of controversy. So that begs the question: will villain questions continue into part three?

The early answer to that question is “Yes.” Variety reports that Idris Elba is in early talks to play a villain in Star Trek 3. However, there are no details on who – or what – he could be playing. Directed by Justin Lin, the film is scheduled for release July 8, 2016. Read more about the Idris Elba Star Trek 3 news below. Read More »

Star Wars Episode VIII release date

There will be a live action Star Wars TV show. That’s not me using The Force either, it’s a fact. When Disney bought Lucasfilm one of the things they were most excited about was the possibility of putting a Star Wars show on ABC, just like they did with Marvel. It’s going to happen. The only question is “when?”

With Marvel’s show, the company exhibited patience. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D didn’t premiere until Fall 2013, which was after Iron Man 3 was released. So there was already seven Marvel movies in the can to raise awareness and help build that world. There were also two movies (Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier) coming right after that to tie into the film.

The latest rumor about the live action Star Wars TV show is Disney wants to employ a similar strategy. They are waiting to launch the TV series until the movies are in full swing. Also, it could star a character who first gets introduced in the books. Read more below. Read More »

Star Wars Tie Fighter - Star Wars anime fan film

Animator Paul Johnson (youtube user name OtaKing77077) spent four years worth of weekends animating this incredible Star Wars anime fan film Star Wars: TIE Fighter. Paul explains:

What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards. Drawn and animated by yours truly over 4 years’ worth of weekends, with music by the living guitar solo Zak Rahman and sound design by up and coming audio technician Joseph Leyva. Fans of Lucasarts’ seminal 1994 TIE Fighter game may notice a few familiar sights and sounds. That “incoming missile” noise gives me horrible flashbacks to this day…

The resulting fan film is beautiful and makes me wish Disney had opted for a more stylized look for Star Wars Rebels. (No complaints, I’m sure we’ll have years of animated Star Wars television shows to look forward to.) Watch Paul Johnson’s seven-minute Star Wars anime short film Star Wars: TIE Fighter embedded after the jump.
