In the nine weekends since its premiere, Terminator Genisys has only managed to bring in $89.4 million in box office revenue through domestic distribution. With a budget of $155 million, and international markets seeming to be excited about the film, it looked like James Cameron was going to find the rights to the franchise gift wrapped on his doorstep in a couple of years. Then, a miracle happened. The film opened in China, and took the fourth biggest opening frame for an American release. Apparently, the good news didn’t stop there, as the film’s fortunes are growing ever brighter in just 8 days of Chinese release. How much brighter? Well, let’s just put it this way: The Hollywood Reporter reported that in a little over a week, Terminator Genisys went on to make $82.8 million. In 8 days, the Arnold Schwarzenegger led picture has almost made the entire domestic »
The Spierig brothers’ self-financed debut film was filled with severed limbs, cut-price but surprisingly sophisticated special effects and lashings of humour
Many prominent film-makers have cut their teeth making low–budget horror movies. Undoubtedly, the ability to create elaborate visual environments using scant resources is appealing to producers and financiers. Big hitters including Peter Jackson, Sam Raimi and James Cameron kicked off their careers with splatstick flicks – involving aliens, demons and killer fish respectively – as did the German-born Australian film-makers Michael and Peter Spierig.
The Spierig brothers’ 2003 debut Undead was a hands-on affair; they shared duties in writing, directing, producing, editing and visual effects. Their self-financed budget totalled about $1m: an astonishingly small amount given the visually high-end result, on a par with the sophistication of many more expensive movies that come out of the Hollywood studio system.

A fancy garden party turns into upper class prey when a colony of killer wasps mutates into seven foot tall predators.
Imagine if you took The Fly, The Thing, Aliens, Eight Legged Freaks and that cockroach scene from A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and put them into a blood-filled blender and you get the idea of what to expect from the wickedly fun Stung.
Taking place in a stately home during a rather posh dinner party to remember a family’s dead father, a group of party-goers and the duo providing the catering are given the shock of their lives when they are attacked by killer wasps. But matters turn to worse when the stings from these wasps turn their victims into giant versions of these killer wasps, »

Ahead of American Ultra's arrival in UK cinemas, here's our pick of the 25 finest, sneakiest secret agents in film...
Operatives. Spies. Moles. Infiltrators. Secret agents go by many names. In fact, Britain's national security agency doesn't even call them agents - they're covert human intelligence sources, or simply “officers".
Whatever we choose to call them, secret agents lead necessarily furtive and obscure lives - so obscure that most of what we know about them is defined by what we've seen and read in books and movies.
During the Cold War, the image of the secret agent as a well-groomed sophisticate in a suit proliferated all over the world, and even in the high-tech landscape of the 21st century, that image still stands - just look at such movies as Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and, of course, the Bond franchise. But secret agents can come in many other guises, »
James Cameron started writing “Avatar” in 1994. Then he waited over a decade to start filming it because the technology he needed to tell his story hadn’t been invented yet. But even then, Cameron and co. found themselves developing new filmmaking technology to transport audiences to the lush 3D world of Pandora. Sometimes filmmakers work with what they’ve got when it comes to filmmaking tools. Other times they look at the script they’ve written and realize that to tell that story, they need invent new tech. Robert Zemeckis wanted a moving-camera shot of Michael J. Fox playing three different characters. Jim Sturgess needed to interact with actors pulled by an opposite gravitational force in “Upside Down.” The big screen adaptations of “The Lord of the Rings” books had to tackle ambitious, epic battle sequences. To pull all this off, technical wizards invented new software and camera equipment. Check »

How did it feel to know Ryan Murphy wouldn’t have done the show without you?
It is rarefied air to have someone call you up and say, “I am writing something for you.” It’s only happened to me a few times and it’s not happened to people sometimes ever. First of all, it happened with John Cleese. I thought of course he wanted my husband, because Chris (Guest) had just done “Spinal Tap.” Then the same thing happened with Jim Cameron (for “True Lies”). This is the third time in many, many years that someone has called me and said, “I’m writing something for you.” Right away, it makes you feel like you have something to offer that somebody wants. »

Gareth Edwards‘ 2010 film Monsters is seen by many as one of the most original and innovative movies of this century. Edwards’ managed to craft a thought-provoking sci-fi monster movie on a shoe-string budget. Rather than other films that dealt with invading aliens, this one was devoid of massive set pieces and the White House being blown up. Instead the film was much more focussed on the humans of the story, Andrew and Sam, as they made their way through the infected zone and embarked on a romance along the way.

The actors are all gathered in the luxurious living-room set of the show’s Kappa Kappa Tau sorority house, and Falchuk wants them to react with unbridled outrage to the news that Dean Cathy Munsch, as embodied by series star Jamie Lee Curtis, will be cancelling the college’s planned Halloween celebration. Seems there’s a killer on the loose on campus, and no one knows when he or she is going to strike next.
If this sounds a bit like Chief Brody closing the beach in “Jaws” — well, score one for the creative team behind “Scream Queens.”
As conceived by mastermind Ryan Murphy, the 15-episode series, debuting next month, aims to send up the classic »

Over this past weekend, Colin Trevorrow was announced as the director for Star Wars Episode IX. While production on the final chapter of the new Sw trilogy is still over a year away, the announcement may have cemented Trevorrow’s place as Hollywood’s next big (and most bankable) director. In an industry where the dollars keep growing exponentially, he may just be the next guy writing his own checks.
What do we mean by “most bankable”? The economics of modern filmmaking dictates that the average big summer movie will command a budget between $150M to $200M. If studios are really excited about the project, that number can grow to $250M easily (for example, 20th Century is prepared to spend $1B on three Avatar sequels from James Cameron). As these budgets have grown, the stakes have gotten higher and consequently studios are making few films annually. Fewer films impact everyone involved in filmmaking, »

Hard to say, even harder to spell, Terminator Genisys was one of this year's most disappointing films. But after its recent bumper box office in China, the planned sequel could happen after all.
The fifth film in the Terminator franchise earned $27.4 million on Sunday after it was finally unveiled to an eager Chinese cinema-going public that hadn't seen another Hollywood film since Jurassic World earlier this summer.
This is after disappointing receipts in the Us, where it scored $89 million in its whole run off the back of a $155 million budget.
Many critics concluded that because of this, the franchise had died a death, despite a more impressive international haul of $264 million.
But with China's promising returns, the sequel - tentatively earmarked for a May 19, 2017 release - could be back on the cards.

Digital projection is meaning cleaner and more stable pictures on the big screen.
Have you noticed anything different in the past few years of visiting your local multiplex? No more Harry Potter films every year mainly, but more fundamentally than that – does the screen look cleaner and more stable than usual? None of the scratches and jitter that you always used to see?
You’re witnessing the results of cinema's digital switchover, just another step our lives have taken from the analogue into the digital world. It’s maybe something many haven’t thought about too much, as they sit back, munch popcorn and drink gallons of Fanta while watching dozens of blockbusters.
But considering how many people are affected by it and its impact on how cinemas are run, maybe we should be asking: what’s wrong with this picture?
Since the film-digital debate is kind of technical, just »
Like Tim Burton’s Superman Lives or James Cameron’s Spider-Man, we will never see the true version of Josh Trank’s Fantastic Four. Among the many public problems the film has had in the last couple of weeks (see here, here, here, here, here and here), it was revealed by screenwriter Jeremy Slater that not much of his script was left in the final version. That version we eventually saw was re-written by Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) at the behest of Fox who worried Slater’s script was too expensive. Well, the chaps over at Birth.Movies.Death got a hold of Slater’s original script – which had Galactus, Mole Man, Herbie the Robot, Fantasticar and Doctor Doom as a Latverian dictator.
Here’s the breakdown:
As in the final film Reed goes to the Baxter Building as part of a science scholarship; there he meets Sue and Victor Von Doom. »

20th Century Fox has a pair of new movies on the way, set within the walls of the Alien franchise. Chappie and District 9 director Neill Blomkamp has been working on a new Alien film, reportedly set after the events of James Cameron's Aliens. Sigourney Weaver is back involved (and potentially Michael Biehn too), and Blomkamp has been teasing artwork online across the year.
Yet Alien 5 may have to wait, for it looks as if the follow-up to Ridley Scott's Prometheus is ahead of it in the queue. Scott is producing the films, and according to Bloody Disgusting, he wants Prometheus 2 to be first up. That's potentially set to shoot at the start of 2016, with a 2017 release date now likely. As such, Blomkamp's Alien 5 may find itself waiting another year to get going. »
This week, for our Fright At Home column, we thought we’d try out something new. While we typically share the week’s newly released titles and give you a small rundown on what films are ones that you might want to check out, we thought it would be fun to switch it up a bit. We’re going to give you the DVD/Bluray art and the official synopsis for each film, but instead of writing small pieces on each film, this week we’re going to be featuring a video review of each film, so we can tell you in more detail about each film. It’s a test, so if you fright fanatics would rather have our usual format, sound off and let us know, and if you dig the new approach to Fright At Home, let us know that as well, because like it’s said in the video: ultimately, »

The Alien timeline has grown muddy over the years, and from what we have been hearing, there will be a few more twists and turns before the picture becomes more clear. Currently, there are two Alien-inspired projects in different stages of development: Prometheus 2, which Ridley Scott still hopes to direct; and Neill Blomkamp.s Alien film, which some suggest will ignore parts three and four and build off of James Cameron.s Aliens. Only now, Bloody-Disgusting is quoting a source as saying Scott is demanding that Blomkamp pump the brakes on his Alien 5 until After the Alien director has gone into pre-production on Prometheus 2? Why? No concrete reason was given, though there were two scenarios that seemed to map out where both projects are at the moment. B-d says that the production delay would give Neill Blomkamp more time to fully develop the screenplay that he.s »
