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 »
David Ayer (Training Day writer, End of Watch director) has a great-looking WWII tank movie coming next year, called Fury. But first, he’ll open the year with a movie featuring the DEA, drug cartels, deals gone bad, and sneaky dealings that leave people dead left and right.
In Sabotage, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as the leader of a DEA unit that robs a cartel and ends up in all sorts of trouble because of it. Check out a trailer below. Read More »
The Expendables 3 just shot this summer, but here’s the first teaser trailer ahead of the film’s release at the end of summer 2014. This installment in the action series full of old guys brings Harrison Ford into the fold, and also features a mix of other returning faces and new recruits.

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 »

Even if audiences didn’t flock to see Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand, they might be a lot more interested to see Schwarzenegger re-team with the guy who helped define him as an action star.
And so we have a new report that Arnie will be the bad guy in Avatar 2 for director James Cameron, who directed the actor in The Terminator, Terminator 2, and True Lies.
Talk of a potential fourth collaboration between the two sprang up in 2011, when they journeyed together to visit a rain forest in Brazil, where Cameron said he wanted to bring the Avatar 2 cast for training. As Cameron took more and more time to put Avatar 2 together, that talk died down. Now that he’s getting closer to a shoot, with a crop of new writers working on sequel scripts, the “Arnie in Avatar 2” talk is back.
