David Ayer's Suicide Squad is quickly becoming one of the most talked-about movies of the year, and it doesn't even open until 2016. We've already pointed out how this is a very important project for Warner Bros. and DC to get right in the wake of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and today has brought a whole new round of rumors for us to mull over.
The studio is on the hunt to fill one of the lead roles, since Tom Hardy and Jake Gyllenhaal have both passed on playing Rick Flag. Last week, we heard that Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal were being eyed as possible replacements, but now JoBlo has an unconfirmed rumor that Star Trek's Karl Urban is in the mix for the role as well. Urban was just mentioned as a contender for a role in Aquaman, but that deal depends on which script »

The first trailer for the highly-anticipated Terminator Genisys that debuted last month showcased Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 battling himself, with the aging Terminator trying to stop his younger counterpart who is sent back in time to 1984. The Terminator Fans have uncovered new details about this fight sequence, which is currently being reworked since Skydance Productions is reportedly unhappy with some of the shots in the scene. Instead of bringing Arnold Schwarzenegger back for reshoots, they "will create a CGI digital older version of Schwarzenegger for the fight." Here's what the site's source had to say about the fight sequence.
"The battle will be better then the T-800 and T-1000 from Terminator 2. The ground will break on the wrestling fight."
The fight has been described as, "an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object" and the site reveals that the Terminator from 1984 won't even have time to find clothes before dealing with the aging Terminator, »
According to the super sleuths over at JoBlo, Wade Wilson aka Deathstroke will also feature in David Ayer’s movie as a “hired assassin competing against the Suicide Squad”. The website also claims that Joe Manganiello (who worked with Ayer in Sabotage) could be in line as well as Jai Courtney’s Terminator: Genisys co-star Jason Clarke. Courtney will be playing Captain Boomerang in the picture.
Deathstroke is a popular villain in the DC Universe and was featured as the big bad of Arrow season 2, played by Manu Bennett. He has also appeared in Smallville and Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. The character of Deadpool in the Marvel »

Chris Hemsworth went from unknown to Hollywood leading man seemingly overnight.
Like many other Australian stars, the actor got his start on a soap opera "Home and Away." But 171 episodes later -- and after a stint on "Dancing With the Stars Australia" -- Hemsworth ended up stateside, waiting for his big break. It didn't take long.

I've already listed my top ten most anticipated blockbusters of the new year and now I'll take a look at the rest of the field as I've done my best to whittle things down to an even twenty films. So before you get in a huff that your favorite franchises aren't listed, just remember you can view all my anticipated blockbusters right here, I simply didn't know how to write the headline other than to just say these were my most anticipated movies without any further distinction.

The Trip To Italy The sequel to The Trip is just as funny, and the food looks even more delicious. Impersonations of the likes of Batman, Bane, and yes, Michael Caine made this one of my favourites of the year. directed by: Michael Winterbottom starring: Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon 8. Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes While not as strong as its predecessor, Dawn is even more thrilling and action packed. »
Thanks to USA Today, we now have a photo of a newly-designed T-800 robot from the upcoming "Terminator Genisys," starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, and Jai Courtney. Check it out below. Plot: The story 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.

Paramount have unveiled a new official still from the forthcoming 'Terminator: Genisys' featuring none other than the T-800. Of course we're all very familiar with the look of the original T-800 and this newly revised design doesn't look all that different but with the plot of the latest installment taking the alternate timeline route it's no surprise there would be a few subtle changes here and there. There's just 6 months to go before Arnie returns to reprise argubly his most iconic role to date and here's hoping this is just the first of many new stills from the production. Joining the big man is sexy Brit Emilia Clarke ('Game of Thrones'), Jai Courtney ('A Good Day to Die Hard'), Jason Clarke ('Dawn of the Planet of the Apes'), Byung-hun Lee, Matt Smith ('Doctor Who'), Aaron V. Williamson, Dayo Okeniyi and J.K. Simmons. »
A T-800 is ready for action, as Paramount releases another still from Terminator: Genisys...
The release of the first trailer for Terminator: Genisys before Christmas seemed to do the perception towards the film some good. It would be fair to say that, until that point, there had been significant fears over the direction the movie was taking, courtesy of some official plot spoilers that had been released. But whilst the trailer didn't win everybody over, it was clear that there's more going on with Terminator: Genisys that it had been given credit for to that point.
Here's the promo in case you missed it.
The movie, which is intended to kickstart a new Terminator trilogy, arrives in cinemas this July, with a cast led by Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matt Smith and Jai Courtney. And it's being directed by Thor: The Dark World's Alan Taylor. »

Paramount Pictures has released a new photo from director Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys. It gives us a good look at a battle ready T-800. These things have always looked insanely menacing, and I'm sure the red glowing eyes are a big reason for that. I really liked what I saw in the first trailer for this movie, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this new story plays out, and how it will actually connect with the first two original films.
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 »
