Not a lot has been confirmed so far about the plot of Terminator: Genesis, other than the fact that it’ll involve some time-travel elements. But in terms of the movie’s tone, Arnold Schwarzenegger says it’ll have the “same feel” as 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day. What it won’t be like, according to the Terminator, is director Alan Taylor‘s last movie, Thor: The Dark World.
Of course, capturing that same T2 vibe will be a lot easier if Taylor is allowed to aim for an R rating. And on that front, Schwarzenegger confesses he isn’t really sure what’s going to happen. Hit the jump to read Schwarzenegger’s comments.

Arnold Schwarzenegger could use a hit right about now, not that he’s at a loss for the ability to crush things. Based on the new Sabotage red-band trailer, however, this could be that hit. The David Ayer-directed thriller looks tough and exciting, with plenty of badass moments and stone-cold violence to go around.
The plot, loosely inspired by the Agatha Christie mystery And Then There Were None, follows a team of DEA agents who start to get picked off one by one after they bust a drug cartel safe house and make off with the cash. Watch the newest promo after the jump.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is giving you the chance to drive around with him in a tank, crushing things. For charity! Omaze and the After-School All-Stars are working with Arnold to set up a charity drive where one contributor will win an afternoon with Arnie, in his own tank, crushing things. Like in Conan, but perhaps not with your enemies. Crushing them is probably illegal.
The Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who also just directed Nick Offerman’s on-stage movie Nick Offerman: American Ham, shot a spot with Schwarzenegger to promote the charity event. While the basic charity promo is pretty safe and “clean,” Vogt-Roberts also edited his own version of the spot. This one is very funny, and really gets Schwarzenegger’s weird personality across. Its full of movie references and Arnie’s love for the fact that he owns his own f*cking tank! Check out the spot below. Read More »
David Ayer (Training Day, End of Watch) and Arnold Schwarzenegger team for Sabotage, which looks like a straight-forward, foul-mouthed, head-shootin’ B-movie. Despite the fact that he has been trying to do some acting in his various recent pictures, Schwarzenegger’s return to the screen hasn’t exactly set the box office on fire. Could this movie, which teams him with a solid supporting cast, be the one? (That cast includes Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini, and Josh Holloway.)
This long red-band trailer dresses up the film’s pretty routine plot (bad-ass DEA agents get in trouble with a cartel, and the law) with a lot of cursing and violence, but thanks to Ayer’s touch it works pretty well. Check out the spot, which definitely isn’t safe for work, below. Read More »
Most people think Let It Go, the melodic ballad from Disney’s blockbuster hit Frozen, has the inside track to win the Best Original Song Oscar. It’s catchy, beautiful and has crossed over into the mainstream in a way most movie songs fail to do. However, that also means people want to take it down a peg and YouTube user 2chinTV does just that with this video featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s Mr. Freeze from Batman and Robin singing the song. And no, they didn’t just edit Batman and Robin footage with the Idina Menzel vocals. They have a Schwarzenegger’s impersonator sing the song. It’s ridiculous. Check it out below. Read More »

End of Watch director and Training Day writer David Ayer takes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos, and Olivia Williams to the mean streets of Atlanta for the violent DEA story Sabotage. Arnie leads a DEA crew that gets into trouble when millions of dollars go missing after a huge cartel bust. (Or what looks like a bust, at least.) Worthington, slightly disguised with a shaved head, Enos, and Howard are part of his crew, and Williams is a local detective who is looking into cartel activity and murders.
While Schwarzenegger’s movies haven’t done big business since he really got back into the game, he was the most entertaining part of Escape Plan (he was really doing some acting, and had a great stretch of performance in German), and here he’s in super-serious mode, which could be a good time. Check out the trailer below. Read More »
