Editorial: Sarah Connor is the Soul of the Terminator Franchise

12 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Originally appeared in the September 2014 issue of Deadly Magazine] There is a scene 75 minutes into 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day,  in which James Cameron pinpoints the humanity amidst all the time travel, liquid metal and state-of-the-art special effects. Young John Connor (Edward Furlong) is bonding with the T-800 machine assigned to protect him (Arnold Schwarzenegger), by teaching him how to high five. The moment is designed to underscore the father/son dynamic between John and the Terminator, as well as provide a visual symbol of the hope for mankind – that we are able to co-exist alongside technology. And, if we’re reading even more deeply, that we can still master it.

A great deal of Terminator 2’s running time is devoted to the connection between John and Schwarzenegger’s T-800. However, it’s telling that the most poignant shot – the one that says the most about their relationship – is from the perspective of John’s mother, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton »

Box Office: ‘Magic Mike XXL,’ ‘Terminator Genisys’ No Match for ‘Inside Out’ and ‘Jurassic World’

16 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger and a team of male strippers are no match for a plucky pre-teen and the mighty Indominus rex.

Inside Out” and “Jurassic World” are racing ahead of newcomers “Magic Mike XXL” and “Terminator Genisys” in the lead up to the July 4th holiday. The Disney and Pixar animated blockbuster about the emotional life of a young girl racked up $7.7 million on Thursday, bringing its North American haul to $216.1 million, while Universal’s dinosaur thriller added $6.9 million to its $527.2 million domestic haul.

Paramount’s “Terminator Genisys” was close behind, pulling in $6.5 million and bringing its total to $15.4 million. The attempt to reboot the cyborg franchise is facing fierce headwinds. Reviews have been lackluster and with a $155 million price tag, “Terminator Genisys” is relying on foreign crowds to propel it to profitability. To that end, it will roll out in 60% of the overseas market this weekend, a move that could boost its receipts substantially. »

Read The Touching Letter Arnold Schwarzenegger Wrote To A Sick Terminator Fan

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

Arnold Schwarzenegger will always be associated with The Terminator, the role that helped make him famous back in 1984. But people forget that the massive movie star is also a politician, a humanitarian, and a skilled people person . traits that have helped to keep him in the public eye for decades. When you read a story like this one, though, you are reminded of what Schwarzenegger, the total package, is able to accomplish, and it.s going to warm your heart. Reddit user bizzjay (via THR) shared an incredible story of an interaction he and his father had with Arnold Schwarzenegger over the Internet.

Jk Simmons Talks Terminator Genisys Sequels

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

Spoilers for Terminator Genisys below.

Terminator Genisys is getting some of the worst reviews of the entire Terminator franchise, but critics generally agree that the presence of Oscar winner Jk Simmons is one of the troubled fivequel’s most prominent bright spots. And recently, while speaking with Slash Film, the actor revealed that he’s set to reprise his role as the series’ newly anointed stealth Mvp in any future sequels.

Asked if his character, O’Brien, survives the events of Genisys (the movie makes this somewhat uncertain), Simmons responded:

“Yes, we are told O’Brien does [survive]… in fact, we went back and did a little added shot on the roof of the whole helicopter sequence to make sure that we see that after Arnold throws me away so that he can save people, I’m one of those that he saves, and I’m still alive and watching whats happening. »

'Inside Out' Just Beat Up 'Terminator' and 'Magic Mike' at the Box Office

18 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hasta la vista, tough guys! As we approach the July 4th holiday weekend, Hollywood is keeping a close watch on the five-day domestic box office. "Magic Mike Xxl" and "Terminator Genisys" just opened, but they were both beat on Thursday by Disney/Pixar's "Inside Out" and also the dino-mite power of "Jurassic World."

According to Variety, "Inside Out" earned $7.7 million on July 2, making its North American total, to date, $216.1 million. "Jurassic World" was not too far behind with $6.9 million, adding to its whopping $527.2 million domestic total.

"Terminator Genisys" was right on the dinosaur's tail, earning $6.5 million to give it a $15.4 million domestic total so far. The "Magic Mike" sequel only had $5.7 million, giving it just over $15 million so far, but since that one only cost about $14.8 million to make, it's not that big a deal if it doesn't have a huge opening weekend. "Terminator," though. That one cost around $155 million »

'Magic Mike' terminated on social media chart

18 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Terminator Genisys tops chart ahead of release.

Magic Mike Xxl has been heating up social media ahead of its UK release this weekend.

But it could not quite match the might of Terminator Genisys, according to social data analyst Way To Blue.

The latest in the Terminator franchise generated more than 5,000 mentions across social media, news, forums and blogs from June 25 to July 1 as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emelia Clarke hit the publicity trail.

Of those comments, 20% expressed intent to view, meaning they would look to convert tweets into tickets.

Male stripper sequel Magic Mike Xxl drew nearly 4,800 mentions (20.6% ItV) ahead of its release in the UK this weekend.

Amy Winehouse documentary Amy, directed by Asif Kapadia, generated close to 1,600 comments (30% ItV).

Still generating attention after a week on release was animation Minions, which managed nearly 4,800 mentions and a strong intent to view of 38%, suggesting the Despicable Me spin-off will continue to generate strong box office.

Terminator Genisys 3D steelbook announced

18 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zavvi has announced an exclusive Terminator Genisys 3D Limited Edition Steelbook which will include a 2D copy of the film. The final artwork for the edition is yet to be confirmed, but it is likely that the price, currently at £24.99, will not change before release.

See Also: Read our review of Terminator Genisys here

The steelbook is limited to just 4000 copies, but after distinctly average reviews from fans and critics alike, I doubt the steelbook will sell out too quickly. Zavvi have given the steelbook an initial release date of December 31st, so don’t go putting it on your lists to Santa!

In the new installment of The Terminator series, John Connor, leader of the human resistance against Skynet, sends Kyle Reese back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah Conner, from a Terminator assassin, an unexpected turn of events creates an altered timeline.

19 hours ago | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

He's back. With the next "Terminator" flick landing in theaters on July 1st with "Terminator Genisys," we're taking a trip down memory lane to find out what your favorite stars from the action franchise have been up to since the original movie.  Arnold Schwarzenegger won the world over when he hit the big screen in "Terminator" back in 1984. The flick focused on a cyborg who was sent to earth from the future to kill a waitress whose unborn child will one day become the leader of humanity against the machines. Arnold went on to steal the screen in action flicks like "Predator" to "Total Recall" after, in addition to appearing in all four "Terminator" films. In 2003, Schwarzenegger was elected as Governor of California, and again in 2006.

Ridicule his abilities as you wish but Arnold Schwarzenegger’s films have made over $4bn worldwide over a 30 year period, making him one of the most successful actors of all time.

This week he returns to play his most iconic role in Terminator Genisys and, since it’s not going down as one of his greatest films, here’s what we’d pick instead.

Schwarzenegger: new Terminator didn't need James Cameron's endorsement

2 July 2015 10:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger says that James Cameron's endorsement of the new Terminator film shouldn't have been used to promote it.

One of the most striking and successful moments in the promotional campaign for the newly-released Terminator: Genisys was when the series' creator, James Cameron, endorsed the new film. He described it in a video that you can see here as "the third film".

Talking about being very good friends, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been chatting to Collider about his relationship with  Cameron.

"I think that it was a great kind of a experience in a way to have James Cameron call me and say I just saw the movie, because I had no idea he was going to go and see the movie", Schwarzenegger said.

"He said you're fantastic in it, and if I would have done this movie I would have done exactly this story, because now you're going in a different direction, »
