Arnold Schwarzenegger Part Of James Cameron’s Global-Warming Video Shown At Dem Convention

3 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Ok, let’s try to wrap our heads around the following: Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Republican former governor of California, just talked about global warming at the Democratic National Convention. No, he didn’t make a backlit entrance for an impassioned speech, but he is among the narrators and appears in “Not Reality TV,” a video about climate change produced by James Cameron that was shown in Philadelphia and aired on TV. Watch it above. The man who replaced Donald Trump… »

Jared Leto: The Unlikely Triumphs of a Rock-Star Movie Star

13 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jared Leto is wearing a preposterous straw hat this morning, a gigantic, not-quite-a-sombrero thing he bought for seven bucks at a corner store. And why not? He's made it this far by committing fully, sometimes crazily, to everything in his life: Method acting, music-making, video directing, tech investing, not to mention the arts of being enigmatic, brainy and really, really good-looking. "I don't dabble," he says. "I dive in, 1,000 percent." So if he needs sun protection for a hike, of course he goes big. In any case, Leto recently turned 44 — "old, »

Tiff Lineup: 5 Reasons to Get Excited About the 2016 Program

26 July 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the middle of summer, when moviegoing options are slim, it’s hard to visualize the sheer scope of films that will screen this fall at the Toronto International Film Festival. No single film commands all the buzz, nor can one lineup, and so the first big announcement — featuring the Galas and Special Presentations — can only begin to provide some insight into the titles worthy of anticipation.

Still, there’s a lot to dig through: Oscar hopefuls looking to gain momentum (“The Birth of a Nation,”  “Loving” and more detailed here); big-budget studio efforts hoping to earn some upscale cred (Peter Berg’s “Deepwater Horizon,” Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi “Arrival”); veteran filmmakers still pursuing the kind of topics that put them on the map (Oliver Stone’s “Snowden,” Mira Nair’s “Queen of Katwe”).

Beyond these obvious standouts, however, several titles from these programs hold a lot of potential for »

‘The Age of Shadows’ Trailer: The Latest From the Great Kim Jee-woon Looks Like a Return to Form

24 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

A few years ago, South Korean filmmaker Kim Jee-woon‘s sojourn in Hollywood came to an abrupt end when The Last Stand was a box office bomb. And while I have a soft spot for that goofy, endearingly odd movie, a late-period Arnold Schwarzenegger shoot ’em up was probably not the best use of the man who […]

Arnold Schwarzenegger producing Pump, a TV drama about his Venice Beach bodybuilding days

19 July 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Deadline is reporting that Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to produce a new eight-episode drama series entitled Pump, which will explore the action icon’s early days bodybuilding at Venice Beach during the 1970s.

Created by Michael Konyves (Barney’s Version), the series “is set in 1973, as a small group of bodybuilders birthed the physical fitness industry and body worship, in the Pacific Avenue beachfront gym that was their temple. While fitness is now a multi-billion dollar industry, back then Schwarzenegger and his brawny pals were viewed as being freakishly muscular. Despite having the best bodies in the world, most bodybuilders were broke. That didn’t mean they didn’t have fun, living a life of hedonism and adventure in 1970s Southern California.”

“I knew from our first brainstorming session that Pump would be a hit,” said Schwarzenegger. “The 70’s were such a colorful, transformational time, for me and for our entire country. »
