As popular as his movies are, James Cameron himself is slightly mysterious. Sure, he’ll get out to promote his work, or use his celebrity status to speak about important issues. Those occasions just don’t provide a great chance to meet the man himself.
Which is why when James Cameron took to Reddit to do an Ask Me Anything session, it was so incredibly fascinating. He talked about his family life, songs he sings in the shower, and his preference between dogs and cats. Below, however, you won’t find any of that. Below we’ve complied the best of Cameron’s film-related answers. There’s some really great stuff.
Cameron offers an update on the status of the Avatar sequels and Battle Angel, discusses whether or not Arnold Schwarzenegger will appear, comments on the possibility of True Lies 2, offers his thoughts on Prometheus, Titanic criticisms, Oculus Rift, Avatar Land, why all movies should be in 3D, if he’s excited for the new Terminator films, and explains why he loves Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil. One Redditor even got him to change a line of dialogue in an Avatar sequel. Read all about the James Cameron AMA below. Read More »

A second Expendables 3 trailer has just been released. It asks that you “hang on for one last ride.” However, with a cast like this (Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kellen Lutz, Ronda Roussey, Harrison Ford, Kelsey Grammer, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas and Mel Gibson to name a few), it’s hard to imagine The Expendables won’t be back again (and again). Especially since this latest trailer looks bigger than the last two films in every single way. It features the first actual footage we’ve seen from the August 15 release, including tons of action, attitude, humor and a roll call of the entire roster. Check out the latest Expendables 3 trailer below. Read More »

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 »
