New Terminator Sequel

Against all odds, the Terminator franchise is being kept alive thanks to producer James Cameron. The crippled sci-fi film series now has a home at 20th Century Fox, and Cameron is hoping to spark the beginning of a new Terminator trilogy, complete with original stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton reprising their roles as the T-800 killing machine and Sarah Connor respectively.

The new Terminator sequel already had a team of writers on board that included David Goyer (Man of Steel), Justin Rhodes (Green Lantern Corps.), Charles Eglee (Dark Angel) and Josh Friedman (Avatar 2), but now they’ve added another writer to the process. The Hunger Games and Captain Phillips writer Billy Ray has been brought on board to give the script one final polish. While we don’t know the story of this new Terminator sequel yet, some details on a couple new characters have emerged. Read More »

how Terminator 6 will work

He’ll be back. We definitely know that much about actor Arnold Schwarzenegger when it comes to James Cameron and Tim Miller‘s untitled Terminator 6, and we know the film will reunite him with Terminator and T2 star Linda Hamilton, who will be reprising her role of Sarah Connor once again.

But in a new interview, Schwarzenegger reveals the filmmakers’ approach to the upcoming sequel, and it all boils down to simplifying the franchise’s convoluted timeline as much as possible.

last action hero

Remember Last Action Hero? Of course you do. The 1993 Arnold Schwarzenegger action/fantasy was one of the biggest critical and financial bombs of its decade before finding a cult following on home video. As a member of that cult following, the film’s initial reception can’t help but feel like a badge of honor 24 years later – they just didn’t get it, man.

Now, Schwarzenegger himself has offered an explanation for why the movie bombed and it involves the 42nd President of the United States.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Beyond Fest

Late last week, Beyond Fest 2017 hosted a double feature of Predator and The Running Man to celebrate the 30th anniversaries of both films, and star Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared in person for a Q&A session beforehand. It was everything an Arnold fan could have hoped for: great stories, terrific jokes, and even a surprise appearance by Predator co-star Bill Duke.

Read on for some highlights of the event, including a video of Arnold arm wrestling a young fan and the actor’s recounting of how he orchestrated one of Hollywood’s all-time great troll moves during the height of his feud with Sylvester Stallone. Read More »

killing gunther trailer

Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s post-politics return to the silver screen has been a mixed bag of weird and sometimes ambitious choices. The ’80s and ’90s action icon remains beloved by his many fans, but it’s become increasingly clear that many modern filmmakers don’t know how to utilize the Austrian-accented muscleman. At the same time, it’s also become increasingly clear that Schwarzenegger himself seems eager to experiment and try new things in his old age (with the notable exception of Terminator Genisys).

So enter the Killing Gunther trailer, which finds the Austrian Oak playing the world’s greatest hitman, who has been targeted by a team of assassins. But it’s a comedy, as the presence of several Saturday Night Live cast members in front of and behind the camera should indicate.

Terminator 6

Okay, okay – so the killer robots in the Terminator movies aren’t technically killer robots, they’re cybernetic organisms. (“Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton,” as one helpfully explains in T2.) But those time-traveling death machines must look like Arnold Schwarzenegger for a reason, right?

That’s a topic that’s been on James Cameron‘s mind lately, and in a new interview, he explains how Terminator 6 – the movie he’s producing that has Deadpool’s Tim Miller supposedly lined up to direct – will explain exactly why the T-800 models look like a muscle-bound Austrian man. Read his explanation below.

Terminator 2

If you never got a chance to see Terminator 2: Judgement Day in theaters, then lucky for you, $7 million has been spent on converting James Cameron‘s action movie classic to 3D for a re-release. The director was hoping it’d be in theaters last summer for the 25th anniversary, but that didn’t pan out. The 3D conversion of Titanic was well-received, and in a new trailer for Terminator 2: 3D, Cameron appears confident audiences will embrace his iconic sequel in 3D as well.

Below, watch the Terminator 2 3D trailer.

Batman and Robin

Batman & Robin is an objectively terrible movie, possibly still the worst superhero movie ever made. But it’s been 20 years now…can’t we all just relax?

It’s two decades later and director Joel Schumacher is still apologizing for the garish, neon-soaked nightmare that is Batman & Robin. And while I’m willing to forgive him on some things — the ice puns are unironically great — those bat nipples still baffle me and presumably everyone else. And Schumacher realizes this, explaining the thought process that led to him creating those infamous rubber nipples. And on that front, he’s not sorry.

Terminator 2 Remake in Grand Theft Auto V

Since it’s Memorial Day, a lot of people are enjoying an extended weekend. Whether you’re one of those people chilling out at home or stuck at work trying to kill some time as everyone else outside the office has fun, we have a good way to kill some time.

Someone with a massive amount of time on their hands decided to recreate Terminator 2: Judgment Day in its entirety by using a modded version of the video game Grand Theft Auto V. It’s surprisingly well done, and for those who don’t have the time to sit through all of the real film’s running time, this version is only an hour long and still hits all the finer points of the film.
