The role of a good producer is often undervalued. We tend to hear Harvey Weinstein-esque horror stories about executives wielding their power and crushing the creative integrity of a film. But what we hear less of are the common tales of a producer collaborating with a filmmaker, making insightful notes, and giving them the resources they need to reach their full potential. According to Deadline, the box office bomb "Child 44" could've used that kind of guiding hand. Read More: Review: 'Child 44' Starring Tom Hardy, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman And Joel Kinnaman One of the year's biggest flops, the dour drama starring Gary Oldman, Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, and Jason Clarke earned awful reviews and woeful box-office returns, taking in just $1.1 million domestically (by comparison, even Johnny Depp's "Mortdecai" managed to tally $7.6 million). And this is even more disheartening given the talent involved (including a script by. »

Simmons, who is on everyone’s wish list after wowing audiences everywhere with his Oscar-winning performance in Whiplash, and the versatile Emile Hirsch on board.

Update: A new poster along the same lines as the trailer is online. But we'll add it lower down the page in a gallery, so don't click if you're spoiler-phobic.Some trailers can be shy about revealing certain details, but not this new 'pay off' teaser from Terminator Genisys. As the May issue of Empire revealed, there's a whole new Terminator in this movie, and this is the trailer reveals what it does - and which actor (or actress) plays it.So, in short, sound the spoiler siren - and buckle up for something pretty intriguing...brightcove.createExperiences();So yes, John Connor himself, as played by Jason Clarke, is the new Terminator, with the power to disintegrate and reform at will. He is part-human, part-machine, all-unstoppable: until he's stopped, of course, which may well happen by the end of Terminator Genisys. But how does this work with the time-travel / reboot nature of the film? »
As the "Terminator Genisys" advertising department continues to churn out material for the revamp of the franchise, it's probably best to remind everyone that marketing teams aren't dumb. While there has been some baying about this latest international poster and recent trailers "spoiling" that Jason Clarke's John Connor is *gasp* now some kind of super-evolved Terminator himself, I'd wager that's all first act stuff. Just like how Marvel has slammed "Avengers: Age Of Ultron" marketing down our throat (4 trailers, 16 clips, and 42 TV spots) without giving up key plot points, so you can probably rest assured Paramount is playing at the same game. Read More: 'Terminator Genisys' Will Be A PG-13 Love Story With "A Healthy Amount Of Movie Violence" So take a look at the one sheet below and know that it probably isn't giving up some kind third act twist.

The last Terminator Genisys trailer we got a few weeks ago was definitely on the crazy side, revealing that hero of the rebellion, John Connor (Jason Clarke), would be getting a villainous make over. Now, a new poster makes no secret of this turn of events, which begs the question of if they're giving this away, what other twist and turns are in store for this complete reconstruction of the Terminator franchise? Released: July 1st Synopsis: John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt.

As with Universal’s Jurassic World, the trailers for Terminator Genisys have been extremely underwhelming. Still, the Paramount Pictures publicirty department continues to throw out the promotional material with today being the turn of a brand new poster.

Paramount’s desperation play continues with the new Terminator Genisys poster. If you saw the second trailer, then you know that it turns out John Connor (Jason Clarke) is a terminator, a reveal that probably would have been kept secret had the movie garnered more interest earlier on. The studio isn’t easing up because now you can see the John Connor terminator in all of his fiery glory. Of course, if you’re a regular theatergoer passing by this poster and don’t know much about the movie, then you’re probably thinking this is just another terminator. Check out the new Terminator Genisys poster below. The film opens in 3D on July 1st and also stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Byung-hun Lee, Matt Smith, Dayo Okeniyi, and Courtney B. Vance. Image via Yahoo! Here’s the official synopsis for Terminator: Genisys: When John »

Much has been said about the most-recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys. Should Paramount have unveiled the twist prior to release? Or was the move a calculated stroke of genius on the studio’s part in order to drive excitement for Alan Taylor’s upcoming sequel? While the jury is still ruminating on a possible conclusion, Paramount has went ahead and debuted an explosive new poster for Genisys, which places said surprise front and center.
Massive spoilers will follow….
Still with us? Great! Long before Genisys began raising eyebrows across the four corners of the industry, Paramount made it explicitly clear that its vision for the future of the franchise would act as a hard reset. And though this doesn’t necessarily involve a retcon, the studio’s revised take will see Jason Clarke’s John Connor, purported savior of mankind and leader of the resistance, become a cyborg, one »

I didn't watch the last trailer for Terminator Genisys, but I heard a lot of people complaining about it spoiling a major portion of the film. In fact there were headlines galore about it doing so. Not having watched it, and I've avoided it ever since learning it was so spoilery, I have no idea if what this new poster for the film is selling is that spoiler, but it definitely tells us John Connor (Jason Clarke) is not a man, but a machine in this new installment in the Terminator franchise. Or, wait, is this just part of the fractured timeline the official synopsis is talking aboutc When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself »

The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee, Courtney B. Vance, and J.K. Simmons, »

While at this year’s CinemaCon, I landed an exclusive interview with director Baltasar Kormákur. He was in Las Vegas to accept the award for International Filmmaker of the Year from CinemaCon and also to promote his upcoming Universal movie Everest. If you’re not familiar with the film, it’s based on a true story and it “documents the awe-inspiring journey of two different expeditions challenged beyond their limits by one of the fiercest snowstorms ever encountered by mankind.” Loaded with an all-star cast featuring Jason Clarke, Josh Brolin, John Hawkes, Jake Gyllenhaal, Sam Worthington, Martin Henderson, Emily Watson, Michael Kelly, Robin Wright, and Keira Knightley, Everest hits theaters September 18th and is one of my most anticipated films of the year after seeing the first footage. Kormákur and I sat down for an interview shortly after he won his award. He talked about where he’s at in post-production, »

"Skynet has created a new Terminator to stop us." After the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys gave away a pretty big plot twist for the franchise sequel, some international TV spots bring that twist to the forefront of the marketing in Asian markets. However, there's also some new bits of footage here, including shots of the aged Terminator (old Arnold Schwarzenegger) fighting with the Schwarzenegger from the 80s. In addition, we also get to see some more shots of the advanced Terminator coming to blows with Schwarzenegger. And they're still milking that "I'll be back," line for everything it's worth. Watch below! Here's the international TV spots for Terminator: Genisys from Paramount International: You can still watch the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys right here. Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World) and written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, »

If you caught the last twist-revealing trailer for Terminator: Genisys, then it’s likely that you’re aware of the movie’s unique conceit. The savior of humanity, leader of the resistance and all-around champion of mankind, John Connor is no longer on our side. As the franchise ‘reset’ takes liberties with every aspect of the series beloved by fans, Genisys has strung up its guiding light as the harbinger of doom. There’s no denying the fact that as daring, unexpected moves go, it’s ballsy. But did we really need to know so much about what’s an arguably intriguing plot point?
Paramount’s decision to clue us in to what could have been a Gotcha! moment in theaters wasn’t a mistake, and that particular narrative quirk continues to drive this new batch of international TV spots. The focus of which hones in on the movie »
