Thanks to a script leak (via Shock Till You Drop) for the upcoming pilot for NBC’s take on fan-favourite DC Comics character John Constantine, we now know a little about what to expect from the second attempt to bring Constantine to the screen.
Since appearing with an unfamiliar Californian surfer drawl, and dark hair in the hugely disappointing movie adaptation that cast Keanu Reeves as the traditionally golden haired demon slayer from Liverpool (who was designed to look like Sting, rather than Theodore Logan grown up) the character has been spoken of in the same hushed tones as The Punisher, Preacher and to a lesser degree Spawn. Surely someone, somewhere would realise the potential of bringing the character to life on screen, even with the sins of the first attempt?

The television world is opening its arms to John Constantine, the beloved DC comic book character who has graced the screen once (in a film with Keanu Reeves) and is getting his own series, appropriately entitled Constantine. David Goyer and Daniel Cerone penned the pilot which is being directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones). Matt Singer plays the eponymous supernatural investigator; he's joined by Lucy Griffiths, Harold Perrineau and Charles Hafford.

In my opinion director David Ayer's Sabotage is the first true Arnold Schwarzenegger movie that the actor has made since he started acting again. It was a hardcore, gritty and badass action film that was fun to watch. I'm not saying it's the greatest Schwarzenegger movie that has been made because it definitely has its problems. I'm just saying it was great watching the legendary actor kick some ass, kill some bad guys, and deliver some amazing one-liners. After all, it wouldn't be a real Schwarzenegger movie without out a bunch of good one-liners. I will say that this one contains a quote that will probably go down as a classic. I won't ruin it for you, but if you watch the movie, you'll know it when you hear it.
As much as I enjoyed the film, I was expecting more from Ayer. I've enjoyed most of the films »

Open Road Films released their new action/thriller flick, "Sabotage," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was highly entertaining with plenty of hardcore violence,action,drama, major twists, and more. The movie stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini, and Josh Holloway. In the new flick, an elite DEA task force, consisting of characters: John 'Breacher' Wharton (Arnold Schwarzenegger),James 'Monster' Murray (Sam Worthington), Joe 'Grinder' Phillips (Joe Manganiello), Eddie 'Neck' Jordan (Josh Holloway), Julius 'Sugar' Edmonds (Terrence Howard), Tom 'Pyro' Roberts (Max Martini), Bryce 'Tripod' McNeely (Kevin Vance), 'Smoke' Jennings (Kevin Vance), and Lizzy Murray (Mireille Enos), bust into a drug cartel safe house to acquire a ton of dough that came out to be $10 million dollars before they ran out of time to get the rest. However, upon completion of the mission, »
Directed by David Ayer
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s newest film, Sabotage, is violent. Violent in a way that they rarely make ’em anymore. Violent in a way that only the star of The Terminator and Total Recall can get away with. Violent in a way that will turn off a not-insignificant portion of the audience. But those who are turned away will be missing out on the most mature and fully realized film that the Austrian titan has yet made.
Schwarzenegger plays the leader of an elite DEA strike team, who break down the doors of major drug cartels with military precision. But they’re also crooked as hell, and when an attempt to rip off a cartel goes wrong, they find themselves dying one by one and with nobody to trust. An impressive collection of talent is on hand as the DEA agents – Josh Holloway, »

In filmmaker David Ayer’s Sabotage, elite DEA task force agent John “Breacher” Wharton (Arnold Schwarzenegger) heads a team that takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels. But after the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they mysteriously start to be murdered, one by one, making everyone a suspect, including the team members themselves. The film also stars Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Olivia Williams, Harold Perrineau and Martin Donovan. At the film’s press day, actor Joe Manganiello spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about why he wanted to be a part of this film, what he liked about his character, how nice it was to do a scene in a strip club where he wasn’t one of the performers on stage, and the pressure of making an action movie with an action icon like Arnold Schwarzenegger. »

Sabotage makes the bold attempt of re-imagining Agatha Christie’s seminal murder mystery novel And Then There Were None as a modern crime-thriller about a DEA special forces team that attempts to rip off a cartel, only to find their stolen loot missing and big target on their backs. After clearing departmental scrutiny, John ‘Breacher’ Wharton (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is finally given clearance to let his team of mad dogs out of the kennel; problem is, no sooner are they back on active duty when a mysterious assailant begins picking them off one by one.
As their numbers dwindle, Breacher’s team starts coming apart at the seams – openings for homicide detectives Caroline (Olivia Williams) and Jackson (Harold Perrineau) to exploit, as they attempt to work out what this fringe team ...

With Hollywood these days the old adage “everything old is new again” seems to really apply to those golden 1980′s (ugh, I feel ancient!). Kids shows from the era like “Transformers” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” are big blockbuster flicks at the multiplex. And there have already been remakes of 80′s flicks the first couple of months of 2014 with Robocop and Endless Love. Of course, there’s the stars of that decade. In two weeks we’ll see Kevin Costner in his fourth feature film in less than ten months with Draft Day. Then there’s the big action icons, and nobody dominated the big screen then more than rivals Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger (who joined forces in the Expendables series and last year’s Escape Plan. But Arnold stepped away from the sound stages for the governor’s mansion for several years while Vin Diesel and Dwayne “the »

Treacherous Uncoupling: Ayer’s Latest May is Fun, Brutally Violent Nonsense
Okay, so, if you can keep in mind that the outcome of its tizzied, conventional plot may not add up as nice and neat as purists may demand, as well as ignore several over-the-tip flourishes concerning hypermasculine braggadocio, you might actually enjoy David Ayer’s latest directorial effort, Sabotage. Fans of his last film, the superior cop drama, End of Watch, may find this follow-up a violently prurient stab at box office glory rather than a bona fide counterpoint, but let’s keep in mind that soft spots were evident there as well (such as the believability of Gyllenhaal and Pena during the vicious unspooling of that plot). Here, we find the Training Day scribe operating in his usual mien of bombastic violence and urban decay, where we get rated R onslaughts that dare to be convey bloody, brutal and repulsive, »

Sabotage won’t be loved by many, except die-hard Arnold Schwarzenegger fans. Fair warning, it’s not Shakespeare. You probably knew that already, but in case you didn’t, I have done my job by warning you. Sabotage is a cops gone bad flick, directed by David Ayer, who helped write the penultimate bad cop flick, Training Day (2001). This movie definitely has gritty street cop in its DNA. Ayer co-wrote the film with Skip Woods whose credits include: A Good Day to Die Hard (2013), The A-Team (2010), Hitman (2007), and Swordfish (2001). Woods is an action movie writer who gets to play with an action movie icon so let the bullets fly where they may.
The plot revolves around a DEA Special Operations Group that infiltrates and arrests/eliminates the drug cartels that proliferate around the globe. These specialists are great at what they do, just ask them, but their fortunes fade when »

In “Sabotage”, Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done – until, one-by-one, the team members mysteriously start to be eliminated. As the body count rises, everyone is a suspect.
To celebrate the release of Sabotage, I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite kick-ass couples to ever light up the screen… like Sam Worthington and Mireille Enos in the film. Check it out below!
Han And Leia – Star Wars : The Original Trilogy
We can’t talk about badass couples without talking about Luke and Leia. These two fought across a galaxy far, far away… and found love. Plus, the dialogue between these two headstrong warriors is incredible!

After a questionable political career as the governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger is very much an actor again. Even Arnold's age can only be identified through the use of high-powered electron microscopes, the beefy thespian has been been making a ton of movies recently -- from the Sylvester Stallone team-up movie "Escape Plan" (woof) to the never-ending "Expendables" movies (the third is due out in August). The latest is "Sabotage," a murder mystery action movie set in the world of the DEA.
The movie has a pretty loaded roster of bad-asses in the form of supporting actors Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Harold Perrineau, Martin Donovan, Max Martini and Josh Holloway, all of whom pack plenty of firepower (if you know what I mean) with Mireille Enos and Olivia Williams ensuring that it's not a total sausage fest. There are many, many cases of ammunition spent in this movie. »

Film: "Sabotage"; Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Josh Holloway, Joe Maganiello, Dawn Olivieri, Mireille Enos, Olivia Williams and Harold Perrineau Jr.; Director: David Ayer; Rating: ** and 1/2 - an unimaginative whodunit.
What happens when "the best undercover cops of the Drugs Enforcement Administration (DEA)" turn into crooks and are then eliminated one by one? Who is the killer, forms the crux of the action mystery thriller "Sabotage".
The film begins with a Mexican drug lord torturing DEA Agent John "Breacher" Wharton's wife, daughter and son. The three of them are then executed and. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's name is only about one-seventh the font size of the title on the poster of Sabotage, formerly Breacher, formerly Ten, his third attempt -- after the full-auto western The Last Stand and the goofy Stallone-co-headlined prison-break joint Escape Plan -- in 14 months at a post-gubernatorial comeback. A dirty half-dozen of his co-stars get equal-font-size, name-above-title status, too. Harold Perrineau, from Romeo + Juliet, the Matrix sequels, and Lost, has more lines than several of those above-the-line cast members; in fact, he's the man charged with informing us that Schwarzenegger's character, veteran Drug Enforcement Administration agent John "Breacher" Wharton, is "a drug-war god." Still Perrineau's name i »
Fans of "Lost" were left with a lot of lingering questions after the show's series finale -- but this probably wasn't one of them.Dominic Monaghan, who played heroin-addicted rocker Charlie on the show, appeared on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" on Tuesday, where he was asked to reveal which of his costars "smelled the worst" on set.And Dom didn't Plead the Fifth -- he actually gave an answer. See who stunk in the video above.The actor was also asked why Michael (Harold Perrineau) and Walt (Malcolm David Kelley) didn't appear in the church at the end of the final episode ... what he thought about hated characters Nikki and Paulo ... and what he stole from the set. Monaghan had an answer for everything. While we wish Andy Cohen had asked about his real life ex and costar Evangeline Lilly or his feud with Matthew Fox, we'll take whatever "Lost" answers we can get. »

This weekend, you can head to the multiplex and see the latest dystopian Ya adventure, watch Russell Crowe prepare for the flood, or if it's playing near you, perhaps check in to "The Grand Budapest Hotel." But if you're looking to just turn off your brain and watch an action film with all the subtlety of a bloody steak thrown on the grill, then "Sabotage" will do the trick. One of two movies coming this year from "Training Day" and "End Of Watch" director David Ayer (the other being the WWII flick "Fury"), this finds Arnold Schwarzenegger deciding not to wink at the camera for once and go all in, playing part of an elite DEA squad who raid a cartel, think their day at the office is done, only for each of them to start getting picked off. And as you might expect from Ayer at this point, this »
