Watch: Honest Trailer For 'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Reveals How It's Basically 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'

44 minutes ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Let's face it, as wildly entertaining and better than it should have been "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" was, that it worked at all is a minor miracle. With respect to the film jumping back in forth through time, criss-crossing narrative threads, and then eventually removing the events of the previous movies from the franchises' continuum, you have to admire the fact that Bryan Singer and co. pulled it off. But here's something we didn't consider: 'Dofp' is basically "Terminator 2: Judgment Day." The latest Honest Trailer puts the X-Men movie in its sights, and makes a pretty strong case that its travel-back-in-time narrative is eerily similar to the James Cameron classic. But if you don't buy that argument, there is the fact that everyone kinda dies in the movie, but then again, sorta doesn't....it's a little confusing. And then there's that post-credits with the pyramids or something. But hey, »

James Cameron Explains Why It’s Okay That The New Terminator Looks Old

1 hour ago | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is old, which means he’s going to look old in the next Terminator movie. He’ll be a robot with wrinkles, and according to James Cameron, that’s okay. “I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age,” Cameron said at a 30th anniversary celebration of the original film. “You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered.” So that’s that, except it doesn’t really matter. This is the kind of external explanation that you can hold in the back of your mind even while laughing at what’s happening on screen. Even »

Showtime Revs Up Nonfiction With Docs on Bob Dylan, Kobe Bryant, Marlon Brando

2 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Inquisitive. Intelligent. Supportive. Enthusiastic. Talk to the creators of some of Showtime’s original documentaries, and it sounds like they’re describing a dream spouse. But that’s how they feel about the perfect partner — the perfect producing partner, that is.

With David Nevins at the helm, Showtime has made a greater push to fund original documentaries, offering in-depth looks at challenging subjects.

“Documentaries have a lot of currency in our culture right now,” Nevins says. “People want to watch them, they’re very well-consumed (and) highly rated. And they felt like an area where there was opportunity to do the kind of things that other people aren’t doing, the kind of things that would make news, and that people would want to write about.”

Last year’s environmental docuseries “Years of Living Dangerously” proved him right. Executive produced by James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the project featured Harrison Ford, »

Michael Keaton to receive Santa Barbara film festival's highest honor

6 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The Santa Barbara International Film Festival has announced the first of this year's many award recipients for the upcoming 30th anniversary edition of the event. They've kicked things off with their most prestigious honor, the Modern Master Award, and hey — when you've got a guy like Michael Keaton in the thick of an Oscar hunt, who better to receive such an accolade? The "Birdman" star will be honored with one of the festival's patented evening tributes on Jan. 31, 2015 at the historic Arlington Theatre. These are always wonderful affairs, deep dives into an artist's career with clip packages and the whole spiel. It's a stark contrast to other events that aim to get as much talent on and off the stage during a given event as possible, and with Keaton, there will be so much to chew on. Keaton's performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest "is tremendous, showing the range of decades-long experience, »

Next summer, the 67-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger will once again return to his signature role of The Terminator in the awkwardly-titled reboot Terminator: Genisys, and franchise creator James Cameron has been speaking about the project during a chat with Deadline, stating how the aged Arnie can be integrated into the plot of the film…

“I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold,” stated Cameron, who directed both The Terminator and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day. “I pointed out that the outer covering [of the Terminator] was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age.

James Cameron has theorised how the Terminator could continue to age.

The filmmaker revealed the tips he shared with Terminator: Genisys producer David Ellison to explain Arnold Schwarzenegger's change of appearance in the 30 years since the first film.

"I wasn't interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold," Cameron told Deadline at the 30th anniversary celebration for The Terminator at Los Angeles' Egyptian Theatre.

James Cameron on Arnold Schwarzenegger's ageing Terminator

13 hours ago | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

James Cameron has been addressing the fact that Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator has aged in Terminator: Genesys...

Closer to his 70s than his 60s, Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the movie series that made his name next summer, as he takes a lead role in Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genesys movie. He'll appear alongside Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney and Matt Smith in the movie, which is set to be the first part of a new trilogy.

As it turns out, it's the man who created the Terminator series, James Cameron, who's come to the rescue in explaining how Terminator: Genisys could put across an older looking Arnie Terminator, and still fit into the logic of the films. Chatting to Deadline, Cameron revealed that "I pointed out that the outer covering was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age".

James Cameron Offered Advice about T-800 in 'Terminator: Genisys'

16 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

James Cameron had some important advice for the upcoming “Terminator: Genisys.”

With the sixty-seven-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger set to reprise his role, Cameron offered some advice to producer David Ellison on how to utilize the veteran actor in the story.

He told Deadline the following:

“Outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered.”

So it may be no CGI or makeup to make him younger? We’ll see.

Cameron is not directly involved with the project and withholding his thoughts about it after reading the reboot script from Laeta Kalogridis. »

James Cameron on His Big Contribution to Terminator Genisys

18 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

A few months ago, Terminator creator and mastermind James Cameron revealed that he was loosely attached to the upcoming Terminator Genisys film. It was just an advisory role for him, but it seems like he played a decent sized role in developing the story that we are going to see unfold. In a recent interview with Deadline he reveals what what his big and awesome contribution was.

"I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold.

James Cameron Lent Advice for 'Terminator: Genisys', Calls Hollywood Unoriginal

19 hours ago | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

James Cameron doesn't do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. No, James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron, and although the Avatar director finds himself prepping for simultaneous production on three sequels to his Pandora-set box office juggernaut, he took a quick second to step away from that world to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Terminator, which turned into a critical and box office success, launching his career and allowing him to continually raise the bar the way we know him to do. As with pretty much all popular franchises, save for Back to the Future, The Terminator is being rebooted, and with that comes speculation as to how franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger will fit into the new movie given he's not exactly a spring chicken anymore. Although Cameron isn't actively involved in the production of Terminator: Genisys, he explained to Deadline »

Why James Cameron Is Done Caring About Terminator

19 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

James Cameron is well and truly finished even remotely being concerned with the Terminator franchise. For the time being at least. The legendary director is still hopeful that the upcoming addition to the series, Terminator: Genisys, will be fun, but he has declared that the franchise simply isn.t his problem anymore. Cameron made the remarks to Empire Magazine during an event to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Terminator. That.s right - it.s been 30 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger.s monosyllabic monstrosity swanned into Los Angeles to try and kill Linda Hamilton.s Sarah Connor. How time flies. Cameron attended the special soiree that was held at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, and he was of course inundated with questions regarding Alan Taylor.s 2015 effort. Despite his history with the franchise, James Cameron made sure to make it clear that he isn.t bothered in the slightest whether »

This past week, James Cameron joined Arnold Schwarzenegger for a 30th anniversary screening of the original 1984 Terminator. While speaking about the event alongside producer Gale Anne Hurd, the director reveals he was the one that came up with a reasonable way to have Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise his role as a T-800 in Terminator Genisys.

James Cameron explains that he gave the idea directly to Terminator Genisys producer David Ellison because he wanted to see Arnold Schwarzenegger return, and he knew how that was going to be possible.

"I wasn't interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold.

James Cameron Has An Explanation For Aging Terminator In Terminator: Genisys

23 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

What do you do when you make a movie about a humanoid cyborg and realize that your leading man has pretty much aged himself right out of the role? You make up a time-travel backstory to explain how cyborgs age. That’s what’s happening with the upcoming Terminator: Genisys, which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as a much older Terminator alongside an older version of John Connor and a younger Sarah Connor.

So how does all of this aging/not-aging work in Terminator Genisys work? Here’s how original creator James Cameron explained a cyborg’s miraculous aging ability:

[T]he outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a »
