In what has to be some of the greatest film news ever released it seems we won’t be getting any Terminator Genisys sequels after all. When Genisys was first announced it was pitched as a new trilogy with some reports stating that the follow-up films would come even if it didn’t take any money. However, in light of a shockingly poor box office performance, it looks like the studio have gotten cold feet and have put the two proposed sequels on ‘indefinite hold’.
Terminator Genisys was supposed to be one of the landmark summer releases, Arnold Schwarzenegger was back in the leather jacket for the first time in over a decade, but it failed to hit its mark. Yes it did take a Lot of money in China, but it tanked everywhere else so spectacularly that it just doesn’t make sense to pump any more money into the series. »

Wearing a red dress and sporting perfect make-up, Kidman will be seen going on a date with Sergei (an anthropomorphised meerkat) using the comparison website's two-for-one movie tickets offer.
Needless to say, there's an appropriately ludicrous press release statement to enjoy alongside these three promotional stills from the ad:
"Arnold Schwarzenegger was always going to be a hard act to follow but having fellow Hollywood icon Nicole Kidman part of the latest TV ad has certainly exceeded our expectations," said marketing director Mark Vile.
Arnie's previous encounters with the insurance-selling Russian munchkins saw them spill coffee over the former Mr Universe and lock him in a car before unleashing a torrent of Terminator jokes.

It was off, it was on again, but now it's off again. Terminator Genisys 2 has reportedly been put on hold by studio Paramount after further analysis of the numbers.
Panned by the critics and mostly ignored by Western cinemagoers, the chances of a sequel were improved by a decent box office haul in China - but it appears this wasn't enough to revive the franchise.
Hidden in a movie finance piece from Hollywood Reporter, it emerges that despite earning $440 million worldwide, the $155 million sci-fi will still lose money.
This is reportedly because of big post-production costs, including a gigantic press campaign.
That said, you can see the infamous killer robot in the new WWE 2K16 wrestling game, and Arnie is keeping himself »
Future Terminator movies are on hold indefinitely following the Us box office failure of new instalment Genisys, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Plans for a “cinematic universe” based on the long-running man versus machines sci fi saga have also been shelved by studio Paramount, the trade bible reports, citing inside sources. Terminator: Genisys has so far scored more than $440m worldwide on the back of a $112m haul in China, but new report suggests a weak $89m Us total and a $150m production budget means it will still lose money.

If all had gone to plan, then this summer’s Terminator: Genisys, directed by Alan Taylor, would have been the catalyst for a new trilogy of films in the series. Genisys directly teased the next installment, and the like of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Matt Smith were contracted to star in it.
But all did not go to plan.
Terminator: Genisys attracted, with good reason, some of the most savage reviews of the summer, and the $150m blockbuster (not including marketing) didn’t break the $100m mark in the Us. More recently, it’s proved a hit in China, although Paramount gets a lower percentage of the ticket take there. But still, its global box office take of $440m (a quarter of which came from China) could have been enough for Terminator: Genisys 2 to happen. »
After this past summer saw Terminator: Genisys meet with a less-than-enthusiastic reception at the domestic box office, the future of the franchise has been in question. As the Arnold Schwarzenegger-starring reboot of the timeline performed well overseas, especially in China, it looked like more installments could be on the way, though now the opposite appears to be the case. In an article in The Hollywood Reporter about film financiers and producers, talk turns to David Ellison, whose Skydance Productions was behind Genisys. While discussing the ambitious plans for the Terminator franchise, the article says: [Genisys] did well overseas, especially in China, where it grossed $112 million. But the $150 million-plus movie still will lose money, and sources say the notion of a Terminator universe is on hold indefinitely. Despite only taking in $89 million at the U.S. box office, Terminator: Genisys has managed to earn north of $440 million globally, which »
At one point in time, Terminator Genisys was shaping up to be one of the most highly-anticipated movies of 2015, but it never took off the way Paramount had hoped when it debuted in theaters this summer. The sci-fi action sequel opened over the 4th of July weekend in third place, behind holdovers Inside Out and Jurassic World. The film earned only $89.7 million at the domestic box office. But back in August, Terminator Genisys opened big in China, keeping hopes for a sequel alive. Earlier today, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that, despite a solid showing in international territories, the previously-planned sequels are now on indefinite hold.
Despite earning just $89.7 million domestically, Terminator Genisys has performed well overseas, taking in $350.4 million internationally for a global box office total of $440.1 million. However, the movie, budgeted at $150 million, will still lose money for Paramount. The sequel did manage to pull in $112 million in China alone, »
This year’s Oscar race for best visual effects is, as ever, loaded with summer blockbuster fare, prestige pics with eye-popping visuals and layered theatrical experiences that beg for a slowing of the inevitable march to a standard of home viewing. Coming out of the hot months, where a number of these contenders tend to plant their flag, it seems as good a place as any to begin our weekly dissection of the Academy’s 10 below-the-line categories.
At the top of the list would have to be Robert Zemeckis’ “The Walk,” which made waves last weekend after a New York Film Festival debut. Working with supervisor Kevin Baillie (“Flight”) and with effects house Atomic Fiction leading the charge, it could be a threat to win the prize at the end of the day. Even if the tone of the film’s first two acts didn’t work for a great many, »

Despite a wave of negative reviews and a soft box office run Stateside, fans of Terminator Genisys were given a glimmer of hope that the two proposed sequels could become a reality thanks to a strong run in China, which has helped to propel the reboot towards $450 million worldwide.
However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, producer and financier David Ellison will not turn a profit on the Alan Taylor-directed reboot, and as such the two planned sequels and a TV series are now “on hold indefinitely.”
As it happens, the rights to Terminator will revert to James Cameron in 2019, so of course it is possible that we will see another movie at some point in the future. However, by that time Arnold Schwarzenegger will be 72 years old, so unless Ellison has a change of heart, we’ve now surely seen the last of Arnie’s T-800.

Good news (or bad?), Schwarzenegger and Skynet won't be around again anytime soon. According to Slashnews, Paramount has made the decision to let sleeping dogs lie. That means there're no Geni2ys, G3nysys, or other awkward childhood subtitle respellings set to be made in the future. And yes, this is despite the sequels previously being planned for 2017 and 2019.
That's right, although Terminator Genisys did seemingly well raking in $440 million dollars worldwide, $155 million of that went to budget and even more into marketing. Apparently it wasn't enough to convince Paramount that the world wanted more, certainly critics didn't (with a 26% Tomatometer, and a 38% on Metacritic) and still don't. And an article at The Hollywood Reporter suggests the film even lost money.
Ironically, an article in Times spoke to the excitement of the new Terminator film. It was so enthusiastic that a television series plus the aforementioned sequels seemed likely. But »

Even though Arnold Schwarzenegger has touted the iconic line “I’ll be back” in the Terminator franchise over and over again, it turns out that might not end up being true after this latest round of the sci-fi film series. This past summer, Terminator: Genisys didn’t do so hot at the domestic box office, and the […]

When Terminator Genisys was announced, the plan was for it to be the first in a trilogy of new Terminator movies. With Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) at the helm and a cast which included the returning Arnold Schwarzenegger alongside the likes of Jason Clarke and Emilia Clarke, it was hard to see how it could possibly go wrong, but that soon changed when the first trailer was released. The fact that the second one spoiled a major plot twist certainly didn’t help matters, and the reviews which later followed were pretty brutal.
Its box office performance wasn’t much better in North America, but an impressive haul overseas – and specifically in China – made the possibility of a sequel at least somewhat plausible.

Thirty years ago this month, director Mark L. Lester changed the course of action cinema forever when he solidified Arnold Schwarzenegger’s persona in the gloriously excessive Commando. Schwarzenegger was already a star thanks to the Conans and The Terminator, but Commando is the film that established the identity he would revisit in film after film – and that introduced the “bigger is better” combination of exaggerated action and comedy that producer Joel Silver would apply to his Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, and Predator series, among many other pictures. Those movies would be heavily influenced by Commando’s vivid palette and precise attention […] »

The Late Late Show with James Corden has only been on the air for just over six months, but in that short amount of time, new host James Corden has given movie fans a new reason to tune in, aside from interviews with the biggest stars. The host has a running segment entitled Role Call, where his guests such as Tom Hanks and Arnold Schwarzenegger act out all of their biggest hits (and some of their flops) in a short amount of time. Last night, Matt Damon stopped by the late night program to promote his sci-fi drama The Martian, in theaters October 2, where he became the latest star to act out his entire film career in just eight short minutes.
Having first graced the big screen as mop-headed slacker Ted Theodore Logan in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Keanu Reeves has since become one of Hollywood’s ‘go to’ actors when explosive action is the order of the day, starring in numerous edge-of-your-seat thrillers including Point Break, Speed and The Matrix. His most recent film, John Wick, which sees Reeves play a former hitman hell-bent on revenge as he returns to the criminal world he left behind in out now on DVD and Blu-ray.
With a career spanning over three decades, Reeves is rarely far from his next on-screen adventure, but what about some of those action heroes we haven’t heard from in a while? We decided to track down a few of our favourites.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has a close relationship with the WWE, something which was evident from Triple H's WrestlMania entrance back in March which saw him pay homage to the legendary actor and promote Terminator: Genisys (which, believe it or not, is currently the tenth highest grossing movie of 2015) when Arnie made a surprise appearance. Now, The Terminator is going to be a pre-order bonus in the upcoming WWE 2K16 video game, meaning you can pit the T-800 against the likes of Stone Cold Steve Austin, Seth Rollins, and Finn Balor. Er, makes sense? What do you think? »
Having being critically-mauled on its release back in early July, it looked like the final nail had been firmly planted into the coffin of the Terminator franchise with Terminator Genisys, despite the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the titular cyborg from the future. But it seems the coffin may not be laid to rest just yet.
After Terminator Genisys’ paltry take of around $89million in the Us, many thought the touted three-picture mini-trilogy for the franchise may have been lost in a time-loop, but its international takings have been somewhat surprising. Its release in China, for example, has been booming, bringing in $27.4 million in its opening day and helping to push its international total to $350 million for a grand total of $440.2 million worldwide.

IGN has released the latest trailer for WWE 2K16, titled Raise Some Hell.
The trailer – which, uses Audioslave’s Cochise as its backing track – features almost every superstar in the game, gives us a quick run through of the Stone Cold Steve Austin mode, and also appears to show what Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator entrances will look like.
One sees Arnie rising out of the staging area (almost naked but not quite), while the other sees him arrive on the scene looking like a latecomer to an Undertaker biker party circa 2001.
The other main talking point is a D-Generation X bit where both Shawn Michaels and Triple H are in the ring. This presumably as part of the Stone Cold mode when Austin took on The Heartbreak Kid at WrestleMania Xiv.
As for the Austin mode, we see Steve grappling with the likes of Mr McMahon, Dude Love, »

If you’re a wrestling fan, WWE 2K16 is by far the most highly anticipated video game release of the Fall. While it still appears to suffer from at least a handful of the same issues previous instalments have, the graphics have received a fairly major overhaul and there are some cool new gameplay alterations and a massive roster to play around with, which is effectively showcased in this three minute long preview.
Of course, four controversial omissions from both this trailer and the game itself are the Four Horsewomen; Bayley, Becky Lynch, Charlotte and Sasha Banks. For some reason, they haven’t been included in WWE 2K16, despite the fact that the latter actually confirmed that she had been scanned for it a number of months ago.
