Emilia Clarke broke out big time during the first season of HBO's Game of Thrones and has remained a fan favorite. As Daenerys Targaryen, she began as a fairly timid young woman who quickly blossomed into a mighty leader. She demonstrated her action chops in last summer's Terminator: Genisys, taking on the iconic role of Sarah Connor and more than holding her own opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger. But how will she do as the star of a beguiling romance? The first trailer for Me Before You reveals that Clarke shines as a young caregiver who falls for a recently disabled man (Sam Claflin). Jenna Coleman and Charles Dance also star; the movie will open in theaters on June 3. The first trailer for Get a Job feels surprisingly nostalgic. Produced in 2012 but only now...

With last month's news that James Cameron's "Avatar" sequel(s) would be delayed yet again, many asked a very simple question: what the hell is going on? Well, 20th Century Fox and Cameron are both staying mum, but there's no doubt that the production will be one of the most ambitious in recent memory, with the director evidently planning to shoot the new trilogy of movies simultaneously. So I'd wager the that scale of it is probably bigger than expected, that scheduling the actors will be tricky, and that Cameron's inevitable new technology for shooting the movies will be massively expensive and time-consuming. But it seems cameras will be rolling fairly soon.

We recently saw the release of the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane, which started life as an independent film unrelated to Cloverfield but was rewritten as a sequel (of sorts). This got us thinking about other films that were conceived as original projects but were altered by studios to become sequels to existing franchises.
When 10 Cloverfield Lane started out, it was an independent film called The Cellar, about a young woman (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) who wakes up injured and locked in the bunker-like cellar of a man (John Goodman) she’s never met before. The strange man tells her that he found after an accident and brought her there to minister to her wounds but then a cataclysmic disaster ravaged the surface world and she has to stay there. She doesn’t believe him and spends the rest of the film trying to escape, while her memories of the night of her accident slowly return. »

From executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator trilogy) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys, Heroes), Hunters is inspired by Whitley Strieber’s best-selling novel, Alien Hunter, in which the disappearance of a decorated FBI agent’s wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists – shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world.
The series stars Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek) as Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past trying to piece together the disappearance of his wife. Britne Oldford (American Horror Story) will play Regan, who is one of the government’s most valuable operatives and may be keeping secrets of her own. Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) portrays McCarthy, »

I found myself thinking recently about films that have been repressed to the dark recesses of forgotten cinema. The sort of films where you find yourself snapping a finger and exclaiming “oh yeah…I remember that!” These could be great films that have somehow not stayed in the consciousness of the mainstream. Then there is another band of films that perhaps didn’t quite get the love they deserved. In the course of time some films find that love. Blade Runner is a great example of this. With this in mind I will begin to explore films that should be shown more love, be they merely forgotten, or dismissed without due attention to their finer points.

One of the trailers for Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice is the latest to ignite grumbles about just how much is given away in promos for movies.
This list looks at 25 films where the trailer has given away more than it really should in its promos - and it goes without saying that spoilers lie ahead for each of the movies. Don't read or click on individual entries of films you've not seen if you don't want to be spoiler sullied!

Director Colin Trevorrow was amongst those who expressed disappointment at this one particular promo for Jurassic World. In it, we see Chris Pratt riding on his motorbike, alongside velcoraptors that surprisingly don't appear to be eating him. Presented out of context, the scene just looked a little daft. But »
With the future of the Terminator franchise not looking particularly bright these days, Arnold Schwarzenegger is keen to revisit another one of his classic characters, Conan the Barbarian. Another Conan sequel has been teased for years but it seems that the project is finally moving forward. The Arnold Fans were on-hand during an an “Experience with Arnold Schwarzenegger" event...

The Legend Of Conan is now Conan The Conqueror, it seems. And the script is done...
Even though last summer's Terminator Genisys fell hard critically, commercially is still did okay-ish business, grossing over $400m at the worldwide box office. That said, it's been a long, long time now since Arnold Schwarzenegger's name equated to box office gold, and we suspect that may have something to do with how long the mooted new Conan film is taking to get here.
Schwarzenegger has actually been in the UK over the past week, for 'Experience With Arnold Schwarzenegger' events (help yourself) in Birmingham and Edinburgh. And according to The Arnold Fans, the Conan sequel question has come up.
Similarly to how Terminator: Genisys will likely go down as the star’s final foray in Paramount’s sci-fi franchise – no thanks to its lowly performance both critically and financially – Arnold Schwarzenegger is gearing up for one last swing of the mighty sword as the titular hero in Legend of Conan.
Having first reared its head more than three years ago, many had assumed that Schwarzenegger had quietly cancelled plans to revisit his breakout role. However, according to the Austrian Oak himself, that simply isn’t the case.
News comes by way of TheArnoldFans, revealing that Schwarzenegger and writer-producer Chris Morgan are currently in possession of a finished script – which includes contributions from Oscar-winning scribe Andrea Berloff – and the search is on for a director to take point.

"Suggesting that modern cinema’s most prescient work may yet turn out to be The Terminator, Werner Herzog’s Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World takes a simultaneously curious, awe-struck and terrified look at the origins and future of the web and the interconnected reality it’s begat," begins Nick Schager at the Playlist. "Structured into chapters, and largely devoid of the adventurous, mesmerizing nature cinematography that characterizes so much of his non-fiction work, Herzog’s latest proves a masterful inquiry into technological evolution." We're gathering reviews and trailers. » - David Hudson »
During IGN’s visit to the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, director Bryan Singer revealed that he sought out advice from James Cameron on 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, owing to Cameron’s experience dealing with time travel on The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. And while Cameron’s input was minor, he did offer one significant suggestion for the final scene where Wolverine wakes up in the new timeline at the end of the film.
“I sent the film to Jim, and at the end of that movie, it was very interesting; when Wolverine woke up, originally, my editor was obsessed with this visual blurriness, so when Wolverine’s walking around he’s seeing things in kind of a blur,” states Singer. “So I sent that to Jim, and Jim called me and goes, ‘Bryan, that blurry thing made me think that the wool was going to be pulled out from under me, »

The ending of X-Men: Days of Future Past saw Wolverine waking up in a future of his own creation. He stopped Bolivar Trask.s Sentinels from one day wiping out most of the mutant race, and now his family has come back from the dead. An earlier cut of the film was slightly different, but more "unsatisfying," according to James Cameron. Wanting to get the mechanics of his time travel scenario in check, Bryan Singer reached out to the Terminator director, who provided some much needed advice on the ending. Sitting in his trailer on the Montreal set after the 56th day of shooting on X-Men: Apocalypse, Singer said, I sent a cut of the movie, Days of Future Past, to James Cameron, almost finished, rough, but almost done, because I value his advice, and I pitched my time travel concept to him when I was at a party at »

Maybe he won't be back?
The new "Terminator" sequel is drowning, and not even hot people running in slow-motion on the beach can save it. Yesterday, Paramount Pictures announced that it was pulling the "Terminator: Genisys" follow-up from the release schedule. "Terminator 2" (not to be confused with the perfection of James Cameron's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day") was scheduled for May 19, 2017, but now the "Baywatch" reboot with Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Kelly Rohrbach and company has that date.
Deadline said the studio had no further comment on the move, but actions speak louder than words. As the site noted, in 2014, before "Genisys" underwhelmed with critics and domestic audiences, Paramount had planned out release dates for both "Terminator 2" and "Terminator 3," which was supposed to arrive in June 2018. Now the whole thing seems up in the air, which is one of the dangers of counting franchise reboot chickens before they hatch.

Bryan Singer may be on the verge of unleashing Apocalypse upon the world, but three years ago, the director and co-writer Simon Kinberg were still pulling together the finale of mutant sequel, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
In adapting one of the most ambitious comic book entries into the X-Men canon, Singer and Kinberg were wary of the near-insurmountable task on their hands from the off, but as the creative pair began to near a conclusion, they sought help from genre expert James Cameron.

Word comes by way of ComingSoon, who spoke to Singer while visiting the set of X-Men: Apocalypse, the third and likely final installment in his prequel trilogy. Speaking with the benefit of hindsight, the director hinted that the finale for Days of Future Past was almost different in tone to the one that made the final cut.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paramount Pictures have removed the sequel to "Terminator: Genysis" off their release schedule and replaced it with director Seth Gordon's comedy-revamp of "Baywatch", starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, Ilfenesh Hadera, Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach.
"Terminator 2" was set to open on May 19th, 2017; but with poor box-office performance in the U.S. market and the negative reception from "Terminator: Genysis", it looks as though Paramount Pictures and Skydance Entertainment, who produced the film, will have to rethink their strategy for releasing the next entry in the "Terminator" franchise. "Terminator: Genysis" was directed by Alan Taylor and starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Jason Clarke, Byung-hun Lee and Matt Smith.
