Yeah, we’re all really excited about high art and the Cannes Film Festival line-up and everything, but you know what else is cool? Old dudes blowing things up. While no one is more facetious about big budget Hollywood films than than yours truly, I still have affection in my heart for The Expendables franchise. This means that when new images from The Expendables 3 pop up, I just have to talk about them.
These new pics are pretty much what you’d expect from the upcoming sequel, as our original Expendables are back, alongside a bevy of newcomers and some rather old faces as well. The franchise has been workings its way through all the A and B List stars of the 1980s, from Jean-Claude Van Damme to Chuck Norris and back again. In this sequel, aged thespians Mel Gibson, Sylvester Stallone, and Arnold Schwarzenegger get armed and dangerous »

Well, here's a movie that won't be playing Cannes or coming anywhere near it: "The Expendables 3." It's not high art, and these things are barely movies at all, but they do have explosions and old dudes causing those explosions and that's all some folks need. And so, a batch of new pics from the action sequel are here. Yep, there's Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Arnold Schwarzenegger all doing their thing and looking tough and getting ready to see say some eye-rolling dialogue. In case you actually care, the plot revolves around a former member of the Expendables (played by Gibson) who has become a ruthless arms dealer who was left for dead... but surprise, he's still alive. So everyone bands together to take him out on the cheap sets of Bulgarian film studios. "The Expendables 3" opens on August 15th. »

Listen all of y'all, it's Sabotage. Here’s a brand new and exclusive TV spot for Sabotage, the forthcoming action thriller starring the Governator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, plus a number of other actors who are not, let’s face it, nearly as stacked as Arnie. Directed by David Ayer (Street Kings, End of Watch), it also stars Sam Worthington, Olivia Williams, Terence Howard, and Joe Manganiello. »
Patrick Schwarzenegger's dad is a funny dude who makes funny faces. Former professional bodybuilder, politician, and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger snapped a photo with his son still knocked out from anesthesia post-surgery while giving his most sympathetic good-humored frown. Upon waking up from the fuzzy state, the handsome 20-year-old model and actor was upbeat about the pic and his prognosis, posting the shot on Twitter with the caption, "Successful surgery. Praying for fast recovery. Thanks @Schwarzenegger with this photo bomb while I was knocked out." There were no silly mugs in this sweet family snapshot Patrick Instagrammed on Father's Day of last year. The Schwarzenegger »
The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)
And so the essential twist that led to »

Sylvester Stallone, Randy Couture, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren and Jason Statham are walking through an abandoned building. The hallways are torn apart. Debris is everywhere. The building looks like it's in the middle of a war zone. As the Expendables, clad in black clothing and carrying massive automatic weapons, take in their surroundings, they slowly make their way down a long hallway and carefully try to see what's ahead. As they reach a closed door they stop. Stallone motions with his head to open the door and in an instant Couture kicks it open and they all rush in. Last September, when director Patrick Hughes was filming The Expendables 3 in Sofia, Bulgaria, I was invited to visit the set with a few other reporters. As a fan of The Expendables movies and especially the cast, I was excited to see them in action, and what I saw »

Last year, when The Expendables 3 was filming in Bulgaria, I got to visit the set with a few other reporters. As most of you know, The Expendables 3 has Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross and his Expendables crew squaring off against Ross’ old partner Conrad Stonebanks, played by Mel Gibson. Returning for the sequel are Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger, with Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas, Kelsey Grammer and Harrison Ford joining the cast along with Kellan Lutz, Glen Powell, Robert Davi, Mma star Ronda Rousey, and welterweight boxing champion Victor Ortiz. While on set, one of the people I really wanted to talk to was director Patrick Hughes. But as you might imagine, he was incredibly busy trying to make his day, so we were never able to get any time with him. Thankfully, last week Lionsgate set up an exclusive phone interview with him, »

What do the film characters of Schwarzenegger, Van Damme, Stallone, Norris et al get up to in the non-action bit of an action movie? Er...

When asked what he did between acting jobs, Robert Duvall once said, "Hobbies, hobbies and more hobbies." This is fair enough because, to quote James Bond, "everybody needs a hobby." Bond himself has all kinds of things to do in his spare time: playing Baccarat and Poker, talking to exotic ladies and drinking Martinis. For all we know, Bond might also be into origami and bell ringing.
The question is, what do other action heroes get up to when they're not shooting bad guys, blowing up trucks or rescuing their daughters from Val Verde? In most movies, we never find out. But in very, »

London, April 16: Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed that he still does all his stunts on his own at the age of 66.
The 'Predator' star refuses to acknowledge his advancing years and spends two hours a day in the gym, the Mirror reported.
However, the actor has admitted that his physique doesn't bounce back quite as quickly as it used to and he still gets thrashed around.
Schwarzenegger said that the advantage is to be in shape, one can do all the stunts and feel the same way they did 20 years ago, but the body does not recuperate the same, as fast.

Los Angeles, April 16: Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger says he likes to take naps in the afternoon and whenever he has idle time.
"Yeah, I sometimes take a nap in the afternoon. I sometimes take them when I feel sleepy and I am at home, then I have the luxury of lying down for an hour," The Sun newspaper quoted the "Sabotage" star as saying.
But Schwarzenegger, who will start filming "Terminator 5" soon, doesn't get chance to snooze while filming due to his busy schedule, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
"You get an hour lunch break and then you work until seven at night, so there's not like, 'Ok guys, why don't. »

With his new film, Draft Day, now playing in Us cinemas (albeit with no sign of a UK release date), director Ivan Reitman has been doing interviews for his new film. Inevitably, both Twins sequel Triplets and the upcoming Ghostbusters 3 have come up.
Read or listen to an Arnold Schwarzenegger interview at the moment, and you'd think that Triplets was pretty much a done deal. However, Reitman - in conversation with Collider - has thrown some doubt on it. "I know Universal is sort of working on that script", he admitted. But he added "I'm not sure. I think it's a tough go, but it could be... I don't really have a strong sense of it just yet".
He's more positive on Ghostbusters 3. "I think Ghostbuster 3 will probably go. »
Despite the fact that the last two movies in the ever-expanding canon were of the middling and downright terrible varieties, The Terminator franchise remains one of the most beloved and most revered in cinematic history, mostly thanks to those movies written and directed by James Cameron. Yes, The Terminator and its follow-up, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, are renowned for their groundbreaking special effects, memorable characters, ingenious sci-fi plottings and – of course – Arnold Schwarzenegger in the role that made him super famous all over the world.
Despite the fact that only 50% of the movies in the Terminator series are actually good, though, the legacy of this series is yet to diminish, and its reputation refuses to die. Though it’s true that Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines failed to live up to the cinematic genius that was Terminator 2, it also wasn’t a total disaster… it just didn’t feel »

Taking a break from what we suspect is the exhaustive work involved in preparing three Avatar sequels for production, James Cameron took part in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session over the weekend. Inevitably, the subject of his new Avatar films came up.
Cameron wrote that "The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They're essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks".
Adding that "there hasn't been a problem finding new and wonderful things to include in the movie", Cameron also played down the rumour that Arnold Schwarzenegger was set to appear as a villain in one of his new Avatar films. »
Man, this was a busy week for Ask Me Anything conversations. Hollywood icon Harrison Ford opened up for a (somewhat) candid conversation that we playfully broke down here on CinemaBlend. And legendary blockbuster director James Cameron also took to Reddit to discuss his various projects, past and present. You can skim through the complete conversation here. Cameron weighs in on the three Avatar movies he.s in the process of making (simultaneously, basically). He discusses Titanic and Prometheus. But his comments about the Terminator franchise really caught our eye. Obviously, Cameron launched the Terminator series with Arnold Schwarzenegger back in 1984. Thirty years ago. Let that soak in. The duo made a sequel, but Cameron moved on, even as Hollywood continued to explore his world in assorted sequels. And it turns out, Cameron didn.t care much for what directors like Jonathan Mostow and the auteur McG came up with. When »
