Warner Bros. Pictures is shaking up the theatrical release model this year by releasing their entire movie slate simultaneously in theaters and on HBO Max for a limited time. Wonder Woman 1984 was the first to try out this strategy, but the studio wanted to take it much further by sending movies like Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, Space Jam: A New Legacy, The Suicide Squad, and more to the streaming service. Now a new HBO Max sizzle reel teases all the same-day premieres coming throughout 2021. Read More »
Clint Eastwood might be 90 years old in the middle of a pandemic, but the veteran actor and filmmaker isn’t letting that stop him from getting his next film off the ground. The American Sniper and Mystic River director is currently scouting locations for Cry Macho, an adaptation of N. Richard Nash’s novel of the same name. Eastwood will not only direct but also star in the film which sounds like the closest he’s gotten to making a western again in a long time. Get the details below. Read More »
I know, you thought I was going to say ‘terminated’ rather than ‘on hold.’ And I really want to. Does Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s divorce and BabyGate mean that we won’t have to suffer The Governator? The answer to that question is unclear, but for the time being the former Governor and reactivated actor has a couple small things to deal with, and film projects including The Terminator 5 and Cry Macho have been put on hold. We don’t know how long this status will last, or if the projects will go away altogether. Read the T5 obituary, er, ‘on hold announcement,’ after the break. Read More »
Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s return to the screen got off to a rocky start with The Governator, but he was a possible candidate for a couple of projects, like Kim Ji-Woon’s The Last Stand, that might push him out of the standard Arnie zone. But it looks like The Last Stand is off the list, because Arnold is now confirmed to star in Cry Macho, reports of which started to appear last week.
The film is based on a Richard N. Nash novel from ’75, and the author wrote the film script as well. He passed away in 2000, but producer Al Ruddy has kept the project alive, and now has Arnie signed to appear and a sales package ready for the upcoming market at Cannes. So, things stand as we recently reported them, but now there is no doubt that the film is going out to gather funds, and with this particular actor set to appear that probably won’t be any problem at all.
After the break, we shamelessly pass on the rumor that various interested parties want to make a Twins sequel. Don’t expect this to actually happen. Read More »
Fresh from the Governor’s office in California, Arnold Schwarzenegger jumped into the ‘y’know, for kids!’ silliness of The Governator animated series, and is already slated to return to The Terminator franchise. But his talk about wanting to find roles more appropriate to an aging action hero was evidently not just talk. Before he makes The Terminator, it looks like Arnie will star in a very Clint Eastwood-like film called Cry Macho. Read More »
