Arnold Schwarzenegger seems to be everywhere lately. We just saw him in The Expendables 2, and we’ve seen the trailer for The Last Stand, and an image of the actor alongside Sylvester Stallone in The Tomb. Oh, and then there was that little The Legend of Conan news break earlier today.
And now we’ve got the first pic of Arnie in yet another new film: Ten, once called Breacher, from David Ayer (End of Watch). Schwarzenegger appears alongside Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, and Malin Akerman, playing part of an elite drug-busting DEA task force. It’s the most overtly military look for Schwarzenegger in some time; he looks like a pretty serious hardass here. Check out a full pic below. Read More »

What do you call a reboot when the film in question involves going back to a previous film template? Robert E. Howard‘s long-running character Conan the Barbarian came to screens incarnated by Arnold Schwarzenegger, in one of the actor’s earliest starring gigs. Arnie did two movies, but a year ago the character was rebooted by director Marcus Nispel with Jason Momoa starring.
Conan’s wheel has turned again, however, and Schwarzenegger is stepping back into the role for The Legend of Conan, which is being described as “Conan’s Unforvigen.” Read More »

The summer of 2012 — a summer that turned out to be rather a mixed bag, as so many hotly-anticipated movie seasons tend to — ends with a bang, or at least an explosion. The Expendables 2 is the Simon West-directed sequel to the Sylvester Stallone film that crammed together a whole bunch of aging action stars in one film.
For the sequel the roster has expanded, with Chuck Norris showing up, Jean-Claude Van Damme as the bad guy (and getting some of the best notes in reviews so far) and expanded roles for Bruce Willis and the post-political Arnold Schwarzenegger. Some of the action looks great, much of the script looks silly, and the guys are all ripped and grimacing, for most of the time, at least.
So how did The Expendables 2 turn out? Germain enjoyed it, with his review highlighting both the silliness and the fact that the film, unlike the first one, does most of what it promises. We’d like to know what you think, too. So sound off after the break, where spoiler comments are encouraged. Read More »
To hell with The Expendables, let’s move on to The Last Stand. South Korean director Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil, The Good, the Bad, the Weird) makes his English-language debut directing Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s return to marquee-heading status. The straightforward action film features Arnie as a disgraced cop currently holding a small-town Sheriff post, who has to prevent a powerful drug lord (Eduardo Noriega) from escaping across the US-Mexico border.
Peter Stormare is the bad guy’s chief enforcer, but that’s OK; Arnie has Genesis Rodriguez, Luis Guzman, Jaimie Alexander, and, uh, Johnny Knoxville on his side. Read More »
Arnold Schwarzenegger is getting back to work in a big way, having already shot a role in The Expendables 2, and the feature Last Stand. (A trailer for while should go online this week.) Now he’s shooting The Tomb, which puts him back on the screen with Expendables creator and former box-office rival Sylvester Stallone.
Stallone plays a security expert trapped in an unbreakable jail of his own design, while Arnie plays a prisoner in the jail who helps Sly escape. The film also features Jim Caviezel, Vincent D’Onofrio, Sam Neill, Vinnie Jones, Amy Ryan, and 50 Cent. Mikael Håfström (1408, The Rite) directed, and that’s the first full image of the two leads, above. Read More »
Well, it looks a lot like Arnold Schwarzenegger on any typical Wednesday, but here’s an official shot of the returning action star as he appears in The Last Stand. The film is from South Korean director Kim Jee-Woon (I Saw the Devil; The Good, the Bad, the Weird) and features Arnie as a disgraced LA cop who has found a late-in-life gig as a small town sheriff in a border town.
When a drug lord is racing to cross the US-Mexico border, Arnie and a ragtag group are tasked with stopping him.
Update: Another image showed up, via Mr. Schwarzenegger’s official site. Find it below.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Avatar star Sam Worthington has had two films in theaters this year, Wrath of the Titans and Man on a Ledge, but it feels like he’s been relatively low-profile, especially after the dual push of Terminator: Salvation and James Cameron’s mega-hit.
He does have a couple projects in the pipeline, however, including the Avatar sequels. The latest one would put him on screen with the original Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in a film called Ten directed by Training Day writer and End of Watch wrter/director David Ayer. Read More »
