In 1997, director Ridley Scott ("Alien") hired StudioADI to put together makeup tests for the vampire-like creatures ('Hemocytes') that would've appeared in his version of I Am Legend. The film would've starred Arnold Schwarzenegger ("The Terminator"), but Warner Brothers killed the project in March of 1998 due to budgetary concerns. In 2012, StudioADI released a video filled with the makeup tests and since it was so popular they went digging into their archive for more makeup tests and concept art, which you can view in their latest video. Scott's I Am Legend would've been loosely-based on Richard Matheson's 1954 horror-fiction novel of the same name. Nearly a decade after WB pulled the plug on Scott's I Am Legend, WB gave the greenlight to Francis Lawrence ("The Hunger Games: Catching Fire") to direct his take on I Am Legend, which starred Will Smith ("Men In Black") and used computer-generated Hemocytes. It generated $586 »
Whether you love him or hate him, filmmaker Christopher Nolan has continued to find new ways to challenge his audience, and paradigms of filmmaking as a whole, throughout his remarkable career. His breakout hit Memento shattered audiences' expectations of a traditional narrative story, while The Dark Knight trilogy redefined the superhero genre in ways nobody even knew they wanted, until they saw it with their very eyes. Inception proved that one does not need to induce hallucinogenic drugs to get the head trip of a lifetime, and even his more straight-forward films like Insomnia and The Prestige are exceptionally bold. Regardless of what you might think of his latest offering Interstellar, most will likely agree that Christopher Nolan has outdone himself, offering truly outstanding visuals coupled with a mind-shattering narrative that still has filmgoers talking weeks after opening day.
With all that being said, Interstellar, all 169 minutes of it, isn't »
With audiences growing tired of “Spider-Man” or “Transformers” sequels, Hollywood now has a solution — go back to the ’90s.
“Dumb and Dumber To,” which opened to atrocious reviews 20 years after the original, still scored an impressive $36 million at the box office last weekend. (Read all the reasons why it worked from my colleague Brent Lang.) It shouldn’t have come as a surprise: the ’90s are hot again. This week, Twitter went nuts over a “Dawson’s Creek” reunion photo of James Van Der Beek and Joshua Jackson, while Focus Features announced “Can’t Touch This” (borrowing from the Mc Hammer song), a ’90s-set high school dance-a-thon directed by Jon M. Chu. If Robin Williams had lived to star in “Mrs. Doubtfire 2,” it would no doubt have been a hit too.
As executives inevitably start to dig through the recycling bin of old titles that never got a second chapter, »

Next year we'll see Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the role that made him famous, the Terminator. Yet it isn't the only role the actor and former Governor is planning to return to as follow-ups to both the comedy "Twins" and his two "Conan the Barbarian" movies are in the works.
Surprisingly though, Schwarzenegger revealed at a Q&A in England this past weekend that another films of his may be getting a revisit - 1987's "The Running Man". Talking with Digital Spy about his return to the "Terminator" franchise, he said:
"It's an honor to be asked back after all these years, back to the franchise. This is really wild... They're doing a Twins sequel, to be called 'Triplets' I've read the first draft. There's rumblings of a new 'Running Man' movie, so it's a great honor to be asked back... [Getting in shape for these sequels] comes back to bodybuilding, I'm used to doing cardiovascular training every day. »

Since his return to acting, Arnold Schwarzenegger has split his time equally between starring in a handful of original action movies and planning sequels to some of his biggest hits. With Terminator Genisys the first sequel to officially be wrapped, awaiting its release next summer, the legendary muscle man may be turning his attention to another long-awaited follow-up, a sequel to The Running Man.

With his new standalone projects, such as Sabotage, The Last Stand and Escape Plan, failing to ignite at the box office, it comes as little surprise that Arnold Schwarzenegger is putting his faith more and more in sequels. He's wrapped now on next summer's Terminator: Genisys, and is expected to appear in the two Terminator films following that one. Then there's the small matter of the Twins sequel, Triplets, and his return to the role of Conan.
And you can potentially add another project to the mix: The Running Man 2.
Schwarzenegger was on stage at a Q&A event in London over the weekend, and he told the crowd "there's rumblings of a new Running Man movie, so it's a great honour to be asked back".
He dropped no »
James Cameron was a couple of weeks into filming his superb sequel Aliens when he had to make a significant casting change. James Remar had originally been cast as Corporal Dwayne Hicks, but he was replaced by Michael Biehn, and his scenes re-shot.
The story at the time was creative differences, but since then the actor confirmed to Sidebar that "I had a terrible drug problem, but I got through it... I was initially cast as Corporal Hicks, and I was fired after a couple weeks of filming because I got busted for possession of drugs, and Michael Biehn replaced me".
Out of nowhere, it seems, a bunch of photos have now popped up online, that show James Remar as Hicks, before he got the boot from the production. »
Arnold Schwarzenegger treated fans to a very special Q&A session in London last night (November 15).
The true Hollywood heavyweight answered questions from Jonathan Ross at the Lancaster London Hotel for 'An Evening With...', in which he discussed his careers in bodybuilding, movies and politics.
Arnie was on top form as he spoke passionately about Terminator, his unsupportive father, crashing tanks and Nicolas Cage nicking his roles. Digital Spy presents just eight of the evening's highlights.
1. He was quite clumsy in the military
"I was 18 years old and suddenly I was responsible for this 15-tonne tank. I was checking my gauges, and all of a sudden the tank was shaking, and I thought, 'What the hell is going on? This engine isn't running very well'. I totally forgot that the gear was in reverse and the tank was slowly going backwards, through the walls, and pipes were bursting and people were running! »
The action hero said at a special Q&A in London on Saturday (November 15) that there are "rumblings" of a follow-up to his 1987 sci-fi movie, while also giving updates on other sequel projects.
Speaking about returning to the role of Conan the Barbarian in The Legend of Conan, he said: "It's an honour to be asked back after all these years, back to the franchise. This is really wild.
"There's rumblings of a new Running Man movie, so it's a great honour to be asked back."
On returning to franchises such as Terminator, he said: "It comes back to bodybuilding, I'm used »
Universal Pictures, the home of the world's most 'famous monsters of filmland' has confirmed they will be rebooting their cast of evil characters into 'heroes', similar to how Arnold Schwarzenegger's "The Terminator" went from a villain to a sympathetic character:
According to Universal Chairman Donna Langley, in order to remain competitive with Marvel and DC’s rivaling franchises, Universal needs to pull its new 'Monsters Universe' out of the horror genre and into the adventure one.
"We have to mine our resources," said Langley. "We don't have any capes, but what we do have is an incredible legacy and history with the monster characters.
"We've tried over the years to make monster movies — unsuccessfully, actually. So, we took a good, hard look at it, and we settled upon an idea, which is to take it out of the horror genre and put it more in the action-adventure genre..."

1984. The year that even the Olympics went to Hollywood is easily one of the greatest years in film history. 1984 is also the year that this writer was born…well, only just (my birthday is 31st December). This of course means that this is the year that I turn the big 3-0. Whilst having a mini wallow/mid-life breakdown I realised that many iconic movies came out during this year, meaning that they too turn 30. The year saw the likes of Indiana Jones And The Temple Of Doom, Beverly Hills Cop, Splash, The Karate Kid, Police Academy and Footloose welcomed into the world and our hearts. Having grown-up alongside many of these titles I decided to perform an in-depth look into the films that shaped 1984 to see how they are holding up three decades later.
So here it is everyone, the last in our retrospective series. It was a long time »

Patience is a very important skillset for a film buff, as Hollywood often leaves fans waiting for more for years -- even decades.
Nearly twenty years after audiences were first introduced to the dim-witted duo of Harry and Lloyd, fans are finally getting a sequel to Dumb and Dumber. With Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey reprising their roles as the titular idiots and the Farrelly Bros.’ stepping behind the camera to direct Dumb and Dumber To, audiences will no doubt be chomping at the bit to take another bite out of a classic comedy gold.
Starting with the shortest wait and leading up to the longest, here’s a rundown of some of the longest-awaited sequels of all time.
American Reunion (2012) - 9 years
When we were first introduced to the pubescent pastry-procreating protagonists of American Pie, they had barely graduated high school. Fast-forward thirteen years, however, and they’re all grown up with jobs, »

Wamg is debuting this exclusive behind-the-scenes clip featuring Cameron where he discusses the reservations and fears he had about venturing into unknown territory.
As a boy, filmmaker James Cameron dreamed of a journey to the deepest part of the ocean. This film is the dramatic fulfillment of that dream. It chronicles Cameron’s solo dive to the depths of the Mariana Trench—nearly seven miles beneath the ocean’s surface—piloting a submersible he designed himself. »

Tom Jolliffe on the glorious year of 1984….
Whatever you may think of as the golden age of cinema, few can deny that the 80s brought about a fantastic array of classic and cult films. Anyone of a certain age may look back at a period of cinema, from growing up, with misty eyes and great fondness. With the recent 30 year anniversary re-release of Ghostbusters, now seems a good time to take a step back 30 years to 1984. This was a year when bustin made us feel good, when an Austrian cyborg promised to be back, where we turned it up to eleven, waxed on and off, and when Elm street gave us nightmares.
Taking a look back over the films on release that year and it seems that cinema goers were spoilt rotten. Ghostbusters was a blockbuster spectacular. A film which appealed to a broad spectrum. It had the ghosts and ghouls to transfix children, »

The phrase ‘shared cinematic universe’ is thrown around so often by the studios these days that its easy to forget that until recently, ‘the first in a planned trilogy’ was usually the default quote when referring to a recently-announced blockbuster. With hundreds of millions of dollars involved in creating a summer blockbuster, the studio executives will always have one eye on the franchise potential of their productions. Not everything has to be turned into a trilogy or a franchise, that just seems to be the way the movie business is heading.
Of course, if a trilogy comes to a logical conclusion then there is always a chance that it will be rebooted or given a long-delayed sequel; Indiana Jones, Die Hard and Rambo all got fourth movies after a long absence, the Bourne series continued without Matt Damon and even the 30 year-old Terminator franchise is undergoing its »

When I was 14, "The Terminator" quietly arrived in theaters, a low-budget Sf/action film starring a guy many people had dismissed already as an onscreen presence, released without much hype or much of a media presence. One of my friends had an older brother who was an usher at a local movie theater, and he would let us walk into anything we wanted to see, pretty much as many times as we wanted. It's where we spent most Friday and Saturday nights for most of '84 and '85, and I tried to see everything that played there. With "The Terminator," though, it was special. Every weekend, no matter what else was out, we'd also see "The Terminator" at least once. The entire time it played, we kept going back. It was so obviously something special, something better than it had to be, and I found the whole thing so thrillingly made. »

This article contains revealed spoilers for Terminator Genisys. The rest is pure speculation on our part.
Paramount began to take the wraps off its reboot of the Terminator series, Terminator Genisys, last week. It was courtesy of an Entertainment Weekly article and cover that revealed what, at first glance, look like weighty spoilers for the film. If you missed them, you can find them here. Do be warned, we are going to have to discuss them further down, though.
In spite of the reveal, there's still a sizeable question that remains over the film, and that's involving the role of one-time Doctor Who star Matt Smith. He's clearly a key member of the cast - we've certainly been told so - but just who or what he is remains under wraps. In fact, »
If you.ve still got it flaunt it and, at 67-years-old, few can deny that Arnold Schwarzenegger.s still got it. The muscle-strapped movie actor made quite the impression back in 1984 when he burst onto screens in a flash of lightning, as naked as the day he was born, or that day he fathered a secret love child. The man was the perfect specimen of masculine brawn, a freakin. former Mr. Olympia, which made for the perfect Terminator casting in James Cameron.s magnum opus. Now, as we eagerly await the new reboot/sequel, Terminator: Genisys, directed by Thor helmer Alan Taylor, we couldn.t be happier hearing that once again, Arnie will be showing a whole lotta skin. Kinda. In Entertainment Weekly.s new cover story, the magazine reports that Genisys begins in 2029 -- hence why there are scenes where the Terminator looks really, really old -- but at »
