Director James Cameron will re-release his classic 1991 feature "Terminator 2: Judgement Day", August 25, 2017 in a fresh, re-mastered 3D conversion, incorporating 'StereoD', a visual technology used in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens":

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D re-release gets a trailer

4 May 2017 3:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

He’ll always be back. On August 25, James Cameron’s groundbreaking film Terminator 2: Judgment Day is getting a 3D re-release in theatres and Distrib Films Us has released a trailer for it. Check out the trailer below…

At the time it was released in 1991, T2 was the most expensive film ever made with a budget of $102 million. The use of CGI on Robert Patrick’s advanced liquid metal T-1000 pushed the envelope of what could be done with computer enhanced technology and graphics, arguably paving the way for improved graphics in films and even motion capture performances. In its original run, the Terminator sequel made $520 million worldwide and went on to collect four technical Oscars at the Academy Awards.

T2: Judgment Day takes place 11 years after the original film with Sarah Connor in a mental institution and her son John a wayward young teen, believing his mom is »

Badass New Trailer for 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' in 3D Re-Release

4 May 2017 2:57 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"The survivors of the nuclear fire called the war Judgment Day." He's back! Distrib Films Us has unveiled a brand new trailer for the upcoming re-release of James Cameron's Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 3D. Yes, we've been reporting since last year that T2 was going to be released in 3D later this year. The 3D upgrade was overseen by Cameron as well as Dmg Entertainment and StudioCanal, so rest assured it will be top quality. This trailer packs in some of the best lines and the coolest moments, and I'm sure it looks much better in 3D, but it's only in 2D online for now. This sci-fi action classic stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Robert Patrick, Earl Boen, and Joe Morton. Fire it up below. Here's the new re-release trailer (+ poster) for Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D, direct from YouTube: A cyborg, identical to the one »

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2: Zoe Saldana's Kids Are Obsessed With Superheroes

1 May 2017 7:17 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

I was pleased to sit with Zoe Saldana to discuss Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, in theaters May 5. Saldana is an admirable actress who is known for portraying strong female leading roles. Her passion to play these characters comes from her wish to leave a mark for young girls. To let them know there is more then chick flick rolls. 

Saldana spoke about how Gamora  has evolved on this second film. She also shared a little about her kids and a little about her upcoming project coming up. 

Lrm: Can you tell me about your character for this second one, how she has evolved versus Vol. 1?

Zoe Saldana: Well I feel like in the first one she was very selfish and she had her reasons. She was a runaway, she was trying to get away from something that she just didn’t want to be a part of anymore. »

18 actors whose characters were cut out of movies in post-production

24 April 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Apr 28, 2017

The actors whose role in a film was shot, but chopped out of the final cut...

Yep, I know. I’ve read lists like this too, and I know that Eric Stoltz was cut out of Back To The Future. If it’s all well and good, I’ll leave that example out.

See related  Alien 5 to ignore Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection Alien 5: will it ever happen?

What I’ve tried to find here is a mix of reasonably known and less known instances of an actor being cut out of a film after they’ve filmed sequences for it. I’ve also tried to get to the reason they were left out as well.

Whilst all this may still sound like an exercise in clickbait, being cut out of a production does have a consequence beyond ego hurting a bit. For the side effect »

Guardians of the Galaxy 2: Zoe Saldana On The Importance Of Playing Strong Female Characters

21 April 2017 7:41 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Zoe Saldana has had one hell of a career thus far. Between franchises like Star Trek, Avatar, and Guardians of the Galaxy, she has made a business out of playing badass characters. In an industry where it’s easy to get typecast as “the girlfriend,” “the mom,” or “the girl,” Saldana has managed to make a name for herself as one of today’s big female action stars.

Of course, this wasn’t done by accident. Actors spend a lot of time and energy deciding the best path for their careers, and Saldana is no exception. Speaking with our very own Nancy Tapia while at the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press junket, Saldana expressed how important playing roles like Gamora is to her.

“It’s unnatural to me, as an artist, to make a career out of just playing girlfriends. I’m not talking down at it. I don’t find it demeaning. »

The Original The Terminator Midnight at The Hi-Pointe Saturday, April 22nd

19 April 2017 8:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I’m here to help you. I’m Reese. Sergeant Tech-Com, DN38416. Assigned to protect you. You’ve been targeted for termination!”

The Terminator Screens Saturday Night, April 22nd, at Midnight at The Hi-Pointe Theater ( 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117). Admission is only $5.

Who would have thought a low budget science fiction movie aptly named The Terminator would be so iconic 33 years later as well as start the meteoric rise of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a legend in cinema, introduce director James Cameron to Hollywood as a force to be reckoned with, give a new meaning to audiences with the immortal line “I’ll be back”, spawn a large fan base, and then witness the birth of a big-budget saga with an even bigger sequel in 1991 that outdoes the first movie with Terminator 2 Judgement Day and then continue on with Terminator Rise Of The MacHines in 2003, Terminator Salvation in 2009, and Terminator »

From Angelina Jolie to Daisy Ridley, Here’s the Top 14 Female Action Stars Working Today

4 April 2017 4:12 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Way back in 1979, Ridley Scott’s “Alien” brought us our first genuine female action hero in Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley. Despite the three sequels that followed, Ripley proved to be something of an outlier. Until fairly recently, a woman could kill someone in a movie only if she faced brutal punishment afterward, as in Scott’s “Thelma and Louise,” or in the inevitable fates of Bond girls: They could dole out lethal action, but rarely survived.

Today, ass-kicking women are no longer an anomaly or subject to automatic retribution. This weekend, we watched Scarlett Johansson lay waste to her enemies (although not the box office) in “Ghost in the Shell,” following a path blazed by the likes of Linda Hamilton (“Terminator 2: Judgment Day”), Uma Thurman (“Kill Bill”), and Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”). These roles may strike a blow for equality and diversity, but what these women — and »

“I’m old, not obsolete” – Where did the 80’s Action Heroes go?

4 April 2017 4:37 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Matt Rodgers

Growing up in the UK’s equivalent of The Shire meant that access to the escapism of video rentals was something as distant as The Misty Mountains. The arrival of a man who looked like Stanley Uris from Stephen King’s It, driving a van that was filled to the rafters with VHS, and which glowed like the Pulp Fiction briefcase when opened, introduced me to a roll-call of the 80s Action Heroes. Monosyllabic men, who quipped their way through bullets and bodies. The first plastic case to cross my sweaty palms featured a muscular fellow, holding a gun, against a colourful heatmap backdrop. It was Predator, and that was a long time ago.

About where things began to change for the real expendables is hard to pinpoint. Why did these one-time box-office giants; Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van-Damme, and to a lesser degree Lundgren, suddenly find their powers diminishing? »

21 of cinema’s worst elevators

20 March 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Mar 31, 2017

From The Shining to I Origins, these are just some of the worst offenders when it comes to moving between floors...

This article contains spoilers for just about every film on its list.

I don’t know when it started exactly.

When I was very young, it was fine. I maybe even enjoyed getting on an elevator and being whisked off, but somewhere in the timeline of my life, something changed. I began to dread stepping onto one. My heart would pound, a cold sweat would creep down my neck and my breath would quicken.

“What’s wrong?” a bemused acquaintance would ask as we were about to embark.

“Oh! Nothing, really,” I’d respond as casually as I could for someone suddenly about to lose control of their bowels. “I just thought I might take the stairs. Bit of exercise, you know.”

“But it…it’s 18 flights, »

George R. R. Martin on Writing TV's 'Beauty and the Beast': "It Was Such a Smart Show"

16 March 2017 12:21 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Before Beauty and the Beast became a Ziegfeld-esque follies of dancing silverware in a 1991 Disney animated feature — now a blockbuster live-action adaptation — it captivated adults as a 1987 CBS fantasy-romance series.

The show, which drew inspiration from Jean Cocteau's 1946 classic La Belle at la Bete, envisioned the tale unfolding in modern-day Manhattan, where our beauty is Catherine Chandler (The Terminator's Linda Hamilton), a lawyer savagely attacked in Central Park and left to die. She is rescued by the lion-faced Vincent (Ron Perlman) — a sensitive, literate soul with savage tendencies — who inhabits a rich »

Hollywood Flashback: In 1987, Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman Brought 'Beauty and the Beast' to TV

Beauty and the Beast myth should be safe for generations to come: The beloved 1991 animated version returns March 17 for a live-action adaptation. But in 1987, millions fell for a very different take on the ultimate odd couple, with CBS' modernized version of the 18th century French fairy tale.

In that Beauty and the Beast, Linda Hamilton, then 31, played a New York City assistant D.A. who is savagely beaten, slashed and left to die in Central Park. (The "Preppy Murder" case had grabbed headlines the year prior.) She is rescued by Vincent, a »

Terminator 2: Judgement Day Will Be Back, In 3D

3 March 2017 12:18 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I struggle to think of any film with more versions than Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Since the 1991 theatrical release, we’ve seen – *deep breath* – the Special Edition Director’s Cut, The Ultimate Cut and the T-1000 Edition Cut. Now, you can add one more to that list, with a 3D remaster of the film due in cinemas on August 25th.

James Cameron is obviously no stranger to using 3D, having kickstarted the trend with Avatar. Back in 2014, he was asked whether a 3D conversion of his Terminator films was on the cards. His response was a ‘no’ on The Terminator (“You could upgrade it to 3D, but it’s pretty gritty low budget filmmaking. We’d spend more converting it to 3D than we spent on the movie,” he said) but a ‘maybe’ on Terminator 2, explaining his reasoning as such:

Terminator 2 is a more polished film and, I think, it »

Deadpool 2 Eyes Scandal Star Kerry Washington as Domino

14 February 2017 11:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With a new director on board in Chad Stahelski (John Wick, John Wick 2), 20th Century Fox is moving forward with Deadpool 2, which is believed to start filming this summer. It has long been confirmed that this sequel will feature both Cable and Domino from the Marvel Comics, although neither of these characters have been cast at this time. Today we have a new casting breakdown with details about Domino, with Scandal star Kerry Washington reportedly testing for the role.

These new details come from The Hashtag Show, which was provided with a casting breakdown for Domino. Unlike most casting breakdowns that use code names for these secretive characters, this breakdown avoids the subterfuge by using Domino's given name of Neena. This report also reveals that, while Kerry Washington is currently reading for the role, both Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sienna Miller have both passed on the role. Kerry Washington is »

In preparation for ‘Chapter Two’ here’s our A-z of ‘John Wick’

9 February 2017 10:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Ahead of Chapter Two, here’s our A-z of the world of John Wick.

John Wick: Chapter 2 arrives in UK cinemas on February 17th 2017. The film is a sequel to 2014’s John Wick, the film that re-established Keanu Reeves as an A-List action star. The story told of a retired hit-man who found himself back in the seedy criminal world after his beloved dog, a gift from his deceased wife, was murdered. The film is all kinds of brilliant, perfectly blending various elements to create a real-life graphic novel.

But in case you’re a little rusty on the world of Wick we’ve compiled this handy A – Z guide.

A is for Assassins

For those not acquainted with the world of John Wick, it’s all about the underworld of hit-men and hit-women. The most decorated of these is John Wick (Keanu Reeves), a hit-man who managed to »
