Back in February, we heard that Will Beall (Gangster Squad) had taken over scriptwriting duties on The Legend of Conan, and now producer Chris Morgan (Fast & Furious) has revealed to The Arnold Fans that the screenplay is complete, and that the film will be a direct sequel to John Milius’ Conan the Barbarian which will catch up with Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Cimmerian warrior some thirty years later.
“Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the ’82 film…but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a thief, a warrior, a pirate, a king, a legend — and is now an older man. Think Unforgiven…with a sword-wielding barbarian. Milius was a visionary. And a hero of mine. He established a milieu that is stunning and violent and clear — incomparable. The goal, the dream, is to live up to his world. »

In fact, he even goes so far as to hint the presence of at least three familiar characters from that groundbreaking film. As Morgan reveals: Without naming names.it.s at least three. And you.re gonna love them! ;) Morgan's candor would not extend to the identity of »

Snake Plissken: Oh, you mean I can’t count on you?
Bob Hauk: No.
Snake Plissken: Good!
Somewhere between Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the 80s had another action star, one that wasn’t unintelligible, one that had far fewer muscles and seemed downright average in comparison to Arnie and Sly. With three movies in a six year span Kurt Russell became America’s biggest cult badass.
First came arguably his toughest tough guy Snake Plissken in 1981’s Escape from New York. It’s hard to beat an eye patch and an abdomen snake tattoo. Plissken, a cocky prisoner, is tasked with rescuing the kidnapped President in the collapsed, criminal run New York. Following Escape from New York was Carpenter’s 1982 terrifying alien invasion remake of The Thing and finally Big Trouble in Little China »

Terminator Genisys opens »
Have you ever fancied seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger in a tussle with none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger? Of course you have. Unfortunately, the fact that there.s only one version of the Austrian behemoth means that seeing that battle in the flesh was always going to be slightly unlikely. But the good folks in charge of Terminator: Genisys weren't going to miss the opportunity to have Arnie fighting Arnie, and the latest clip for the blockbuster shows us just that. Boom! How can you not be excited about that? Not only do we get to see 1984.s Arnold Schwarzenegger launch at his more elderly counterpart with gusto, but we also get to see Genisys. Arnie smashing him in the head with a large object. Plus, this TV spot also informs us that it.s taking part on a bridge, which must mean that at least one of them will be »

He wasn’t kidding when he said he’d be back. Although it’s beginning to sound more like a threat than a promise at this point. No matter how many times you dip it in lava, cover it in molten metal or hire McG to direct it, The Terminator can never die. After four films, a theme park ride, countless books and comics and a TV show, the future still feels far away.
Arnold Schwarzenegger finally returns as the noticeably saggier-looking synthetic robot killer in a couple of weeks time, when Terminator Genisys further messes up the already incomprehensible timeline of paradoxes the franchise is built on. This time, the T-800 is nice from the start, sent back even further to protect Sarah Connor before the events of the first film.
The Terminator franchise has a rich mythology (stop laughing at the back), even if it’s often difficult to parse. »

"I'll be back." And now here he is. Almost 31 years after the release of the original, Park Circus is planning a global re-release of James Cameron's The Terminator, the sci-fi classic that started the franchise. We all know they have a brand new Terminator movie coming out this summer, Terminator: Genisys (watch the trailer), also with Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator again, so it's likely all one big coordinated brand promotion across the entire world. Remind everyone of the original Terminator and bring that back to the forefront. Personally I prefer T2, but this first one is just as badass. And now I want to watch it again. Here's the two new trailers for James Cameron's The Terminator, for the 2015 re-release this summer: Park Circus will be re-releasing the original The Terminator in theaters this summer. "Where it all began. Returning to cinemas worldwide in June 2015. He's back. »

In 1984 when a clanging, hulking piece of metal became a sensation and launched a franchise that continues this year with the fifth installment, "Terminator: Genisys."

Arnold Schwarzenegger loves taking selfies with his fans.
The 67-year-old Hollywood legend is a user of most social media platforms and although he considers Snapchat his favourite medium, he always enjoys posing for photos for fans that they can post on Twitter and Instagram.
When asked what his favourite social media platform is, Schwarzenegger said: “It depends what it is for, but Snapchat has been one of the things that has been very good. Reddit too. After a screening of ‘Maggie’, we did a selfie line where people who thought they’d never take a picture with me can now take a selfie with me. I’m having a great time with social media. Some like it and some don’t. I happen to like it.”

This is not a review. In fact, if you’re looking for a recap of the now on VOD/in limited theaters Schwarzenegger film Maggie, look elsewhere. What this is, for all intents and purposes, is something of an editorial, a reflection on why the presence of children in danger and what can sometimes come from that element is an important aspect of horror and dealing with a possible situation that nobody with children would ever want to think about. It’s biased, completely based on myself and my thoughts on the subject and will contain Many spoilers, so if you have yet to see Maggie, The Mist or any other films present in this, feel free to minimize this until seeing said films.

[Editor's Note: This post is presented in partnership with Time Warner Cable Movies On Demand in support of Indie Film Month. Today's pick, "Maggie," is available now On Demand. Need help finding a movie to watch? Let TWC find the best fit for your mood here.] Read More: Arnold Schwarzenegger Surprises in Zombie Drama 'Maggie' In "Maggie," Arnold Schwarzenegger plays the downbeat parent of a teenager (Abigail Breslin) bitten by a zombie. Spending most of the movie caring for ailing girl and anticipating her death, Schwarzenegger’s character in director Henry Hobson's debut is far different from others he’s played in the past. That extends to the movie as well; opening day-and-date in the U.S. on May 9, "Maggie" marks a much smaller production than anything the actor has done before. But Schwarzenegger said that the movie gels with the way he’s worked for years. In New York for the film’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, he spoke »
