Arnold Schwarzenegger In WWE Hall Of Fame 2015

26 January 2015 9:42 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

WWE.com

It was announced on Monday that WWE will induct actor and the former Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger for their Hall of Fame on Saturday March 24 at the Sap Center in San Jose, California. The previous name announced for the Hall of Fame is “Macho ManRandy Savage. It was first reported by TMZ and shortly after confirmed by WWE.com as well.

Does he really deserve it? He’s only been on WWE TV  a few times, so he really doesn’t deserve it based on that. However, WWE has inducted multiple celebrities in the past that have barely appeared on their shows. In the last five years the celebrity Hall of Famers have been Bob Uecker, Drew Carey, Mike Tyson, Donald Trump and Mr. T’s memorable speech last year thanking his mother endlessly.

Schwarzenegger, who is 67 years old, appeared at the 2013 Hall of Fame when »

15 Fun Facts About Conan The Barbarian

23 January 2015 11:48 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Conan the Barbarian is one of those rare 1980s movie gems that just kicked a ridiculous amount of ass. Fantasy films weren't as popular back then as they are now, and the fact that they went all-out for a violent R-rated action film is awesome. If they made that movie today, the studio would want it to be cut down to a PG-13 rating, which is kind of sad. I freakin’ love this movie, and one day hopefully we get that Legend of Conan sequel. The last thing I heard was that it would start shooting this year, and I hope that’s still the plan! While we wait for an update, I've put together a list of 15 Fun Facts for Conan the Barbarian that you might not know. Enjoy!

23 January 2015 11:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Action legend Sylvester Stallone (Rocky, The Expendables) is swapping his boxing gloves and automatic weapons for bread, as he is set to team up with British bakers Warburtons in a new advert set to air later this year in the UK.

Website Bakery Info has revealed that Rocky will be the new face of the bread makers, and will star in their new advert.

“In a power-pairing of bakery meets Hollywood,” Bakery Info’s Bronya Smolan writes, “the 68-year-old is set to be the face of a new TV advertising campaign, after filming at one of Warburton’s bakeries this week.”

The news comes after Stallone took to the jumbotron screens at Goodison Park on Monday to speak to Everton supporters as some of his crew filmed crowd scenes for his new Rocky spin-off, Creed.

Sylvester Stallone to sell bread in an advert for Warburtons

23 January 2015 4:59 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Action star Sylvester Stallone is set to team up with British baker Warburtons in a new TV advert, we've learned...

After you've officially won at boxing as Rocky, discharged all the firearms as Rambo and united all the action stars with The Expendables, what do you do next? Sell bread, obviously.

The website Bakery Info (news of which reaches us thanks to Film Divider) has revealed that Sylvester Stallone will be the new face of British bakery firm Warburtons.

"In a power-pairing of bakery meets Hollywood," Bakery Info's Bronya Smolan writes, "the 68-year-old is set to be the face of a new TV advertising campaign, after filming at one of Warburton's bakeries this week."

And there's Sly, posing in a set of Warburton's-themed combat fatigues, and standing in front of a collection of Warburton's vans. The weather is dreary, and so too is Stallone's face.

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:   The nonfamous guys in this photo got a huge surprise when they ran up the steps of Philadelphia's Museum of Art, mimicking the iconic scene in Rocky: the man himself, Sylvester Stallone, was standing there with his family, in town actually making another Rocky sequel (Creed). He graciously provided the following group selfie (via Live for Films):   What if Al Pacino had played Han Solo? Maybe it'd have looked something like this mash-up of Scarface and Star Wars (via Geek Tyrant):   Still looking for the perfect outfit to wear to the movies to see The Imitation Game?

The Expendables 2 director to remake The Blob

22 January 2015 10:38 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Blob freaked people out in 1958 as it moved through town devouring everything that crossed its path. I know, sounds scary doesn’t it? Now it’s back to do it all again in a remake of the old sci-fi classic, set to be helmed by The Expendables 2 director Simon West.

West should prove to be a good fit for the material. He not only created the above-mentioned explosive addition to the Sylvester Stallone rampage but he is also responsible for such films as Con Air, When a Stranger Calls and The Mechanic… so yeah he should know how to balance the right amount of action and camp.

The original film follows a mysterious gluey alien life-form that bubbles and oozes its way across Downtingon, Pennsylvania, consuming anything it comes in contact with. It starred Steve McQueen and Aneta Corsaut, and was directed by Irvin S. Yeaworth, who also made 4D Man and Dinosaurus! »

Model and Actor Plitt, Killed in Train Accident, Was Original 'Body' of Watchmen's Dr. Manhattan

21 January 2015 5:38 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Fitness model Greg Plitt killed in train accident: Plitt was the 'body' of Dr. Manhattan in 'Watchmen' movie Fitness model Greg Plitt, best known for adorning countless fitness magazine covers and for his participation on the reality TV show Work Out, was killed by a passenger train while being videotaped last Saturday afternoon, January 17, 2015, in Burbank, about 20 kilometers northwest of downtown Los Angeles. Authorities are now trying to figure out how Plitt and his two-person crew were able to access a restricted area -- without a filming permit -- and what exactly they were doing there. Online tabloids claim to have the answer, asserting that Greg Plitt's death was the result of a failed thrill-seeking stunt. The athletic Plitt, who had previously shot at least one workout video on a train track, was purportedly trying to outrun the passenger train, but tripped and fell on the tracks. »

Sylvester Stallone Takes Selfie With Fans On The Rocky Steps

21 January 2015 4:03 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This past weekend, a group of three college friends visited Philadelphia and decided to sprint to the top of the iconic steps at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, following in the footsteps of Sylvester Stallone's Rocky Balboa character. But while millions have raced to the top of the stairs, only a select few get to see Rocky himself when they reach the top. Philly.com reports that when the three friends reached the top of the steps, they heard a voice behind them say, "You guys got up here pretty fast. You're making me look bad." It was - you guessed it - Stallone, and he posed for a photo with the guys.

Stallone was in town filming Creed, the Rocky spin-off/sequel which stars Michael B. Jordan as Apollo Creed's grandson. Stallone will reprise his role as Balboa and train Jordan's character.

Bruce Willis Gets Taken in CIA Thriller 'Extraction'

21 January 2015 2:45 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Where's Liam Neeson when you need him? Bruce Willis has joined the upcoming thriller "Extraction," but this time around, he's the one who needs saving. Willis will play a retired Secret Service man who's hard at work developing a secret weapon with his CIA operative son when he's kidnapped by terrorists - Willis, that is. When the government won't step in to help, his son goes rogue to rescues his pops himself.

"Extraction," which will begin filming in February, will be directed by Steven C. Miller, who recently directed the Santa-centric horror flick "Silent Night" in 2012. The real question is just how much screen time Willis will have in the film.

Willis already has a few more projects lined up, like John Pogue's "Wake" and an adaptation of Elmore Leonard's "Bandits." No matter what Sylvester Stallone has to stay about Bruce's work ethic, you can't deny the guy stays busy! »

Watch Sylvester Stallone practising his Scouse accent

20 January 2015 10:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yesterday action icon Sylvester Stallone delivered a half-time message encouraging fans attending the Everton v West Brom game at Goodison Park to cheer during the shooting of scenes for the upcoming Rocky spin-off Creed, and now a video has surfaced online which features Sly practising his Scouse accent. It’s as bad as you’d expect. Check it out here…

Raised in an upper-crust home thanks to the ring riches earned by his grandfather, Apollo Creed, the young man doesn’t have to box and his family doesn’t want him to. Yet, he has the natural instinct and gifts and potential that made his grandfather the heavyweight champion until Rocky Balboa took his crown in 1979′s Rocky II. Creed’s grandson needs a mentor and turns to Balboa, who is out of boxing completely and not eager to return.

Creed is directed by Ryan Coogler (Fruitvale Station) and will »

Sylvester Stallone asks Everton fans to cheer for new Rocky movie

20 January 2015 2:07 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Sylvester Stallone surprised Everton fans by making a half-time appearance last night (January 19).

The Hollywood star and Everton supporter appeared on the big screens at Goodison Park, asking fans to cheer for the recording of his upcoming Rocky film.

The appearance was organised by boxer and Everton fan Tony Bellew, who stars opposite Stallone in Creed. The film will see Rocky Balboa return as a trainer and mentor to the grandson of Apollo Creed.

Stallone's appearance did not inspire Everton to a victory, however, as they played out a 0-0 draw with West Brom.

The actor previously visited Goodison Park eight years ago, and was presented to the fans before kickoff. »
