The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'

16 April 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)

And so the essential twist that led to »

First Look at It's Hell Getting Old from Hellevator Man Anthology; First Word on New Feature Mindless

14 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Two forces to be reckoned with have teamed up to bring us our first look at "It's Hell Getting Old," a horror short from director Patrick Rea that will be part of Blanc/Biehn Productions' new elevator-set anthology Hellevator Man.

Kansas City-based Rea's short stars Kip Niven (Jayhawkers, New Year’s Evil), Joicie Appell (Nailbiter), Victor Raider-Wexler (Minority Report), and Nancy Marcy. It was executive produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Michael Biehn, and Lony Ruhmann.

The script, written by Rea, deals with four elderly people trapped in an elevator on their way to their 50th Class Reunion, and one of them may have forgotten to take some important medication. The film was shot in Kansas City, Missouri, and the director of photography was Hanuman Brown-Eagle.

In addition to a few behind-the-scenes photos from "It's Hell Getting Old," we also have the kick-off announcement for Bbp's Mindless, a mind-bending thriller that marks »

Cameron Talks Avatar, Terminator, Innovation, & More

14 April 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

On Saturday, visionary director James Cameron appeared on Reddit in an Ama chat where he answered all kinds of questions from fans and gave his opinions on various topics. Along the way, he gave an update on the upcoming Avatar sequels, dished on non-Cameron Terminator projects, and spoke a bit about the direction he’d like to see Hollywood go in.

Here are a few highlight’s from Cameron’s Ama:

On Avatar:

“The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They’re essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks.

The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love to get the film down to a length that is affordable. There hasn’t been »

Terminator: Genesis – 10 Things You Need To Know

14 April 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Despite the fact that the last two movies in the ever-expanding canon were of the middling and downright terrible varieties, The Terminator franchise remains one of the most beloved and most revered in cinematic history, mostly thanks to those movies written and directed by James Cameron. Yes, The Terminator and its follow-up, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, are renowned for their groundbreaking special effects, memorable characters, ingenious sci-fi plottings and – of course – Arnold Schwarzenegger in the role that made him super famous all over the world.

Despite the fact that only 50% of the movies in the Terminator series are actually good, though, the legacy of this series is yet to diminish, and its reputation refuses to die. Though it’s true that Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines failed to live up to the cinematic genius that was Terminator 2, it also wasn’t a total disaster… it just didn’t feel »

14 April 2014 4:28 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

This past weekend, director James Cameron did a Reddit Ama and covered the gamut in terms of Q&A, ranging from the current state of the Avatar sequels, his thoughts on the latest Terminator films (and reboot), the Alien films (post Aliens), what happened to True Lies 2, the best movie he's seen in theaters recently, his thoughts on 3D being used for all movies, and he would win in a fight between a T-800, and Alien Queen, and a Na'vi.

James Cameron Admits He Pretty Much Hates Those Other Terminator Movies

13 April 2014 2:05 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Man, this was a busy week for Ask Me Anything conversations. Hollywood icon Harrison Ford opened up for a (somewhat) candid conversation that we playfully broke down here on CinemaBlend. And legendary blockbuster director James Cameron also took to Reddit to discuss his various projects, past and present. You can skim through the complete conversation here. Cameron weighs in on the three Avatar movies he.s in the process of making (simultaneously, basically). He discusses Titanic and Prometheus. But his comments about the Terminator franchise really caught our eye. Obviously, Cameron launched the Terminator series with Arnold Schwarzenegger back in 1984. Thirty years ago. Let that soak in. The duo made a sequel, but Cameron moved on, even as Hollywood continued to explore his world in assorted sequels. And it turns out, Cameron didn.t care much for what directors like Jonathan Mostow and the auteur McG came up with. When »

James Cameron Doesn't Like Last Two Terminator Films, Says T-800 Would Beat Alien Queen and Na'vi in Battle

13 April 2014 5:11 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

During an "Ask Me Anything" session on Reddit on Saturday, director James Cameron offered his opinion on the last two "Terminator" films, as well as his thoughts on how the T-800 robot would do in a battle against the "Alien" queen and the Na'vi from "Avatar." "I'm not a big fan of the ['Terminator'] films," he revealed. "I didn't make the second film until I had an idea as big as the first film, and it had to do with the moral complexity of the story, and asking the audience by the end of the film to cry for a Terminator. I don't think that the 3rd or 4th film lived up to that potential." He continued: "'Sarah Connor Chronicles' I never really watched much of it, so I never gave it a chance to get hooked, like you have to with a TV series. I'm hopeful that the new films, »

"Avatar" director is getting ready to return to Pandora for the three announced sequels to the 2009 blockbuster. "The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously," Cameron explained during a Reddit Q&A.

James Cameron Talks 'Battle Angel', 'True Lies 2', 'Terminator' and 'Alien 5'

12 April 2014 1:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director James Cameron just finished his extensive Ama on Reddit, where he went over his entire career and discussed all of his movies, both future and past. In an unusually candid conversation, the man behind two of the world's biggest movie releases, Titanic and Avatar, was definitely asked anything and everything.

To read his comments about the future of the Avatar franchise: clickHere.

Read on for his comments about True Lies 2, Battle Angel, the future of the The Terminator franchise and the Alien franchise, where he discusses his thoughts, feelings and general attitude towards cinema at this point in time.

For years, we've heard that True Lies 2 is happening. These rumors have mostly been kept alive by Arnold Schwarzenegger's co-star Tom Arnold. According to James Cameron, we'll probably never see a sequel.

We abandoned True Lies 2 after 9/11, because we didn't think a comedy about fundamentalist terrorists was so funny anymore. »

As popular as his movies are, James Cameron himself is slightly mysterious. Sure, he’ll get out to promote his work, or use his celebrity status to speak about important issues.

James Cameron Talks Avatar Sequels, His Plan for Alien 5, Prometheus, the Terminator Reboot, Battle Angel, Captain America 2, and More

12 April 2014 11:27 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Though filmmakers like Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are widely considered some of the most popular directors of all time, James Cameron has the distinct honor of directing the two highest grossing films ever made in addition to helming films in two other incredibly successful (and ongoing) franchises.  Fans had to wait over a decade for the follow-up to Cameron’s mega-hit Titanic, the performance-capture-heavy Avatar, and we’re currently in another waiting stage as we prepare for the long-promised Avatar sequels. Cameron is deep in pre-production on Avatar 2, 3, and 4 right now with production set to get underway on all three films simultaneously later this year, but he recently took some time out of his schedule to participate in a fascinating and characteristically candid Reddit Ama in support of his upcoming Showtime docu-series Years of Living Dangerously.  In the lengthy Ama, the director discussed the status of the Avatar sequels, »

Stars: Kristy McNicholPaul Winfield, Jameson Parker, Helen Siff, Christa Lang, Vernon Weddle, Paul Bartel | Written by Samuel Fuller, Curtis Hanson | Directed by Samuel Fuller

In 1982, the late Massachusetts film-maker, Samuel Fuller (The Big Red One, Shock Corridor) took his place behind the camera to tell a story of racism, hope, neglect and terror in the wonderful, chilling, poignant and ruthless film, White Dog.

Based on a true life story that was published at one time in Life Magazine in the 1970′s, White Dog follows the character of Julie Sawyer (Kristy McNichol) who accidentally hits a dog with her car while on a night drive in a secluded forest-heavy area of the Hollywood hills.
