Okay so Arnold Schwarzenegger has been revisiting a lot of his old Terminator scenes lately, not just in Terminator Genisys which resets and revisits some moments from the first film in different ways, but also in a new commercial for the WWE 2k16 video game. But you’re probably thinking to yourself — “that doesn’t make any sense, why would Arnold Schwarzenegger be promoting a pro wrestling video game?”
Well as it turns out, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be reprising his role as the T-800 model Terminator in WWE 2K16. Thats right, Arnold is a playable character in the video game if you preorder (but, of course, WWF/WWE legend Hulk Hogan will not be in the game). So hit the jump and watch the Arnold Schwarzenegger WWE reenactment of the iconic bar sequence from Terminator 2: Judgement Day with some current WWE wrestlers.

It’s no secret that the majority of movies based on video games are not very good. We’re not talking about movies set in the world of gaming or featuring fictional and real video games like TRON, Wreck-It Ralph, and this week’s release of Pixels. We’re talking about movies based on an existing video game title being brought to the big screen.
The first video game movie was Super Mario Bros. in 1993, and while that movie should have been terrible enough to kill the entire subgenre (the recent Honest Trailer for the film illustrates that pretty well), there have been about 26 video game movies released theatrically since then, and not one of them deserves to be called great (many of them can’t even be called okay).
However, there might be a chance that the future has some genuinely good video game movies on the horizon, that is if the talent attached to some forthcoming projects is any indicator. Below, we look at seven forthcoming video game movies that could break the apparent curse that plagues the subgenre.
Check out some promising video game movies coming soon after the jump!

I still haven’t gotten into Disney’s popular collectible toy video game platform Disney Infinity, despite the fact I own four Disney Infinity figures (hey, they just look cool). Disney is gearing up to launch the third version of the game platform which will include Star Wars, Inside Out and more, and now we are hearing the future could feature another George Lucas property.
No, not Indiana Jones (not yet at least, although a Indy-focused Disney Infinity set is bound to happen eventually), but instead the George Lucas-produced Francis Ford Coppola-directed Disneyland 3D short film Captain EO which starred Michael Jackson and Anjelica Huston. But will Disney actually release Captain EO Disney Infinity content? Find out the details after the jump.

The first image from the second trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is burned in our brains. A speeder races along a vast desert, and as the camera follows it, a crashed Star Destroyer is revealed. Soon, we learned this is the planet Jakku, home of Rey, and location of an epic battle between the Empire and Rebellion some time after Return of the Jedi. In a single shot, director J.J. Abrams tells his audience how the galaxy has changed since Jedi and sets up the world we’ll see in The Force Awakens.
Soon after that trailer was released, we found out fans will get to participate in the Battle of Jakku when the video game Star Wars Battlefront is released before The Force Awakens.
Now, fast forward to this week and E3. EA released a new trailer for Star Wars Battlefront which takes place on a desert planet and ends with a Star Destroyer crashing. Some have speculated this is our first look at the Battle of Jakku. Is that true? Find out below. Read More »
