Birthday shoutouts go to Dionne Warwick, who is 73, Jennifer Connelly is 43, Mayim Bialik is 38, and Sheila E. is 56. She had big hits with “The Glamorous Life” and “A Love Bizarre,” but not enough attention is paid to her minor hit “The Belle Of St. Mark.”

20th Century Fox are banking alot of hope in their upcoming Marvel sequel, X-men: Days Of Future Past, which is the company’s second highest costing production after James Cameron’s Avatar. The sequel will bring together various different cast members from the original X-men trilogy and 2011′s X-men: First Class, including Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Michael Fassbender and of course James McAvoy.
The film will use a narrative consisting of two different timelines that are united through Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, who bridges the gap between the past and post-apocalyptic future. One of the most interesting elements of X-men: Days Of Future Past is that audiences will see both young and old versions of Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto and Charles Xavier/Professor X. Now in recent interview, McAvoy has been talking about his role as Charles Xavier after reprising the part from X-men: First Class. McAvoy also discusses »

Jason Clarke just may be the man to save the human race. Clarke has the offer and is in talks to play the role of human rebel leader John Connor in the Terminator reboot being made by Paramount, Annapurna Pictures and Skydance, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The project is in the early casting stages and is seeking actors to fill in the iconic roles created by the early James Cameron-Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi movies where robots and artificial intelligence seek to exterminate humanity.

Not content with appearing in just one big science fiction franchise re-working, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Jason Clarke now has his eye on fighting that other big threat to humanity: the machines. Clarke, probably best known for Zero Dark Thirty, is in talks to play John Connor in the Terminator reboot, Genesis.Thor: The Dark World (and Game Of Thrones veteran) director Alan Taylor is calling the shots, working from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. The plot is largely being kept quiet, though it may well follow much of the basics of James Cameron’s original (wo)man vs. machine narratives with a few changes here and there (particularly if the intent is to launch a TV series to run alongside it).Connor, of course, is the heroic leader of the human resistance, the man who must help us battle Skynet and stop the »
Director Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genesis seems to be gaining a lot of momentum! This film development is actually on a roll! It seems everyone is now referring to the new Terminator films as a reboot, so I'll start referring to it as a reboot as well. There's a bit of really interesting casting news on the film that we have today. According to Deadline, Zero Dark Thirty star Jason Clarke is in early talks to play the iconic role of John Connor in the film.
You all know who John Connor is right? Just in case you don't or can't remember, he is the leader of the rebellion that fights against the Skynet artificial intelligence system that is hell-bent on wiping out the human race. You know what? If you don't remember, maybe it's time you watch the first two movies again.
Clarke is a solid actor who »

Deadline is reporting that actor Jason Clarke is in early talks to play John Connor, the leader of the human rebellion, in the upcoming reboot of Terminator (rumored to have the subtitle, Genesis). The actor would join Edward Furlong, Nick Stahl, and Christian Bale, as actors that have famously played the character on the big screen. Clarke has been on quite a tear lately, following his role in Kathryn Bigelow’s super successful Zero Dark Thirty. The actor then appeared in The Great Gatsby, White House Down, and currently has six films in post-production- including Dawn of The Planet of The Apes.
At age 44, he would definitely be the most mature version of the character that we’ve seen to date, and this could offer some insight into the story they intend to tell with the new films. At this time, very little is known about the upcoming reboot, other »

Exclusive: The Terminator reboot is getting more interesting by the minute. Jason Clarke, so good in Zero Dark Thirty, is in early talks to play the role of John Connor, the leader of the rebellion against the Skynet artificial intelligence system bent on wiping out the human race. This comes as Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke emerges as the frontrunner to play Sarah Connor (with Brie Larson also in the mix) for Thor: The Dark World helmer Alan Taylor. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also expected to reprise his signature cyborg role in a film that involves time travel into the future. Terminator: Genesis is being spearheaded by Skydance Productions’ David Ellison, who is teamed with Megan Ellison’s Annapurna in the effort. Paramount has signed on to distribute, and has set a July 1, 2015 release date. Annapurna purchased the rights for over $20 million and the expectation is that they will »

Exclusive: In what might be the last big material sale of the year, Skydance Productions has acquired in a pre-emptive seven-figure deal an untitled science fiction project based on an original idea by Shane Salerno, who is currently co-writing one of the three Avatar sequels for James Cameron at Fox. Salerno will write the screenplay, and Skydance’s David Ellison and Dana Goldberg will produce. Paul Schwake will be executive producer. Skydance confirmed the deal, but would not comment on its size or the film’s logline. “The second we heard Shane’s pitch, we immediately wanted to partner with him on this project,” Ellison offered. “We are thrilled to be on board.” Salerno wrote and directed the feature documentary Salinger, which was released theatrically by The Weinstein Company, and makes its TV debut as the 200th episode of American Masters on PBS. It airs January 21. A book by the »

According to Deadline, Jason Clarke, who we will see next in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, is in "early talks" (although depending on who you ask, it's a done deal) to play John Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot(?), which we recently found out would be subtitled "Genesis". The site also names Game Of Thrones beauty Emilia Clarke as the frontrunner to play Sarah Connor, but mention that Brie Larson is still in the mix. Now obviously this means that John and his mother will both be from different timelines, and the general consensus is that it must be John who travels back much the same way Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) did in James Cameron's original - although that character is apparently in this new movie too! It's all a bit of a mystery for now, but we know Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to return in some capacity. »

Us director credits Leonardo DiCaprio as source of inspiration but looks to make only a 'couple more' films
• Watch the trailer for The Wolf of Wall Street
Martin Scorsese has said he expects to retire after making a "couple more" movies.
Speaking over the weekend at the Marrakech film festival, where he was acting as jury president, the Oscar-winning director also revealed he had been reinvigorated by working with Leonardo DiCaprio on their series of five films. The pair's latest collaboration, The Wolf of Wolf Street, has just been completed in time for an awards season run ahead of the Oscars in March.
"I have the desire to make many films, but as of now, I'm 71 and there's only a couple more left if I get to make them," said Scorsese. He added: "I miss the time when I »

Though they were on TV in one form a few years ago with the under-seen and underrated Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, it would appear the machines are ready to launch another assault on our small screens, and we have Annapurna Pictures and Skydance (not Skynet) Productions to thank for it. The producers behind the planned new Terminator trilogy are working on a series to extend the story of the film currently in development.X-Men: First Class / Thor writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (whose TV credits include Fringe and The Sarah Connor Chronicles) will act as executive producers to launch and guide the new show, alongside current Terminator film script bods Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier.What plotlines will the show use? That info has not yet been released, for obvious spoiler reasons, but Deadline reports that it'll follow a plot moment from James Cameron’s 1984 original, yet spin »
Director Alan Taylor ("Thor: The Dark World"), will helm the new "Terminator" feature, titled "Terminator: Genesis", to be released by Paramount June 26, 2015, as the first film in a new stand-alone trilogy.
Annapurna Pictures purchased the rights to the "Terminator" May 2011, with the stipulation that if nothing is done with the property by a specific date, screen rights would revert back to "Terminator" co-creators James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd.
"The Terminator" released in 1984, was inspired by themes and premises by science fiction author Harlan Ellison, then scripted by Gale Anne Hurd and Cameron, with direction by Cameron, after producer Roger Corman passed on the project.
Michael Biehn played 'Kyle Reese', a soldier from the future sent back in time to protect Sarah.

Details on the forthcoming new Terminator film suggested it was going for the reboot route as opposed to another sequel. While Arnold Schwarzenegger remains attached to the film, recasting roles for Sarah Connor and time-travelling protector (and impregnator) Kyle Reese may hold clues to the new direction for the Skydance and Annapurna Pictures production of the classic James Cameron-creation. Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor is set to direct the sci-fi epic, with Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson said to be the final two remaining and fighting it out for the role of unborn resistance leader’s hunted mother.
We’re now hearing Taylor’s sequel/reboot has an official title of Terminator: Genesis as well as a brand new series not connected to the cancelled Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The new show will be used as a tie-in to the upcoming film and will split »

The thing is, Terminator already has a bunch of time travel going on, the very thing that is going to revitalize the X-Universe.
So, in honor of a bunch of crazy new time travel, let’s look at the current state of the Terminator Timelines. They are many and they are confusing.
[Author's Note: Tweet screencaps are read bottom to top].
I archived this conversation because you do Not f*ck with Terminator timelines.
In order to discuss how this works, we’re going to be discussing a certain version of time travel that I will now try to explain in the simplest way possible: bullet’d assumptions:
We all have favourite directors, producers or writers of film. We’re all familiar with the works of Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, Stanley Kubrick or Alfred Hitchcock. We’re fans of Quentin Tarantino and James Cameron, and can name the works of Tim Burton and Ridley Scott. We know of Jerry Bruckheimer or Peter Jackson, M Night Shyamalan and Guillermo del Toro. In short, we all recognise the big names who give us films. But one name which may not sound so familiar, is that of Luc Besson.
Luc Besson is a director, producer and writer of film. He was born in 1959, in the French city of Paris to scuba-diving parents, and grew up in the Mediterranean, travelling off the coasts of Italy, Greece and Yugoslavia . He did not initially want to become involved with cinema, intending instead to become a marine biologist. But at the age of 17, he »

The Hollywood Reporter just broke the news that Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are teaming up to bring a new Terminator series to a television near you. That’s not all. Unlike the ill-fated Sarah Connor Chronicles, this one will tie-in directly to the upcoming rebooted film franchise.
THR describes the show like this:
“The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984) and, where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming series will take the same moment in a completely different direction. As the rebooted film trilogy and the new TV series progress, the two narratives will intersect with each other in surprising and dramatic ways.”
The creative team behind this new series is Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller- who are no strangers to adapting James Cameron’s cyborg creations to television. The duo also worked on Sarah Connor Chronicles, and their other past credits include Thor, »

The action franchise heading back the big screen in 2015, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are now looking at bringing Terminator to television as well. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that a new series is in development that will tie into the Alan Taylor film. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, the pair behind X-Men: First Class and Thor , will provide the script for the pilot. The franchise was previously brought to television as "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" (which also featured script work by Miller and Stentz). The new series is said to split from the timeline of James Cameron's 1984 original in a way that will allow it to connect back to the upcoming big screen reboot. Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance »
This story first appeared in the Dec. 13 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. The Hitmakers Directing a genuine blockbuster doesn't automatically secure awards laurels -- in fact, it can be an obstacle in a season that lavishes praise on "little movies." Still, as both James Cameron (Titanic) and Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) have demonstrated, commercial success can go hand in hand with a directing Oscar. At this point, the box-office champ among 2013's awards hopefuls is Alfonso Cuaron's Gravity. The 3D space odyssey has gone into orbit at theaters around
