Now that it’s graduated from just sharing cat pictures, the internet lives off movie facts. It’s just a shame so many of them are completely made up.
Did you know the run-time of Titanic is the same as the time it took for the ship itself to sink? That little factoid’s recently done the rounds, despite being categorically false – the ship went down in two hours, forty minutes, while James Cameron’s Oscar sweeping blockbuster goes on for another half an hour. A quick fact check would have revealed that, but instead people run around shouting it just so they can make jokes about how long the movie is.
Despite the entirety of human history (pretty much) at anybody’s finger-tips, people seem to take facts at face value, letting rumour reign supreme and trivia become a tangle of speculation.
In the early days of the internet, »

Check out this awesome Terminator artwork from artist Grzegorz Domaradkzki (aka Gabz). It's very much in the Mondo-type of style that's become popular for film prints over the past few years, but this is some especially high quality work that deserves a huge audience. I love all of the little details that you can see in the background. It really nails the sense of dread that permeates James Cameron's film, and captures the idea that Arnold's Terminator won't stop...ever...until you're dead.
Limited edition screen print inspired by James Cameron's movie "The Terminator”. Made for Grey Matter Art and Studio Canal. 5 colours Regular, Variant and Foil Variant will be available in 24 x 36" size. Work made digitally in Adobe Photoshop. Printed by D&L Screen Printing. »

You might not know who Gary Rydstrom is, but you've certainly heard him before. This is a man whose pioneering sound work has won him seven (!) Academy Awards and brought to life groundbreaking technological advancements like the first film presented in DTS sound ("Jurassic Park") and re-crafting sound mixes in 5.1 surround (after his breakthrough work on "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," he and James Cameron created a new multi-channel mix for the original "Terminator"). He's also directed a pair of Pixar short films ("Lifted" and "Hawaiian Vacation") and overseen the English language dubs of four Studio Ghibli movies ("Tales from Earthsea," "From Up on Poppy Hill," "Arrietty," and last year's Oscar-nominated masterpiece "The Wind Rises"). In short: he's kind of the coolest dude around.
And this weekend he adds another accomplishment to his already unfathomably long list, when his debut feature film "Strange Magic" debuts in theaters nationwide. This bizarre, George Lucas-produced animated fairy tale, »

After more than three decades working in film and television, producer Gale Anne Hurd says the basic tenet of her success has always been about preparing for every possible outcome on a project.
“Then you’re not stuck having to solve things when there’s truly no time to get it wrong,” says Hurd, who will receive the 2015 David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Motion Pictures at the Jan. 24 Producers Guild of America Awards ceremony.
“Going back to (1984’s) ‘The Terminator,’ I would have dreams about possible production problems, so I would have a list of plan B, plan C, plan D. Because everything that can go wrong will go wrong.”
Hurd started in the business as Roger Corman’s executive assistant at New World Pictures, eventually working her way up to head of marketing.“The Terminator,” which she also co-wrote, was the turning point, launching Hurd’s career as a producer. »

Like the titular time-travelling killer, The Terminator franchise just won’t stay dead. Which is pretty damn impressive considering there hasn’t been a good installment since 1991.
Quite what it’ll take to finally kill the series is unclear. James Cameron tied it all up in Terminator 2: Judgement Day, yet thanks to Hollywood’s traditional perseverance with a recognised property they managed to wrangle out a threequel a decade later. And despite Rise Of The Machine under-performing with fans and critics it still prompted a fresh, but still closely-linked, reboot. Now, even after the disappointment of McG’s Terminator Salvation and a lengthy legal paper trail, there’s going to be another attempt to kick-start the franchise this year.
Although it’s beginning to look like Terminator Genisys might just be that movie that finally stops the T-800 on screen once and for all, with »

There are plenty of awful movies based on video games out there, but today I thought I’d switch it up a bit and put together a list of great, classic films that got crappy video game adaptations. As I looked back at many of the games, I realized how bad some of them really were. I owned and played several of these games growing up, but as bad as they were, I still had fun playing many of them. I was a little kid growing up in the 80s - I didn't know any better!
These are games I got because of how much I loved the movies they were based on. A lot of the time I spent playing these games was full of frustration because many of them were practically impossible to beat. I don’t recall beating any of these games! These were all made in the infancy of video games, »

The Associated Press reports the Academy Award winner behind “Titanic” and “The Terminator” dropped the bad news for fans hoping to see the first of three new movies in 2016 while promoting the local film industry in Wellington, New Zealand with “Hobbit” director Peter Jackson. Cameron filmed the 2009 blockbuster there, and has returned to produce the three sequels, which will be released over three consecutive years.

Today in New Zealand, director James Cameron ("The Terminator") was at an event promoting the local film industry along with his friend and fellow director Peter Jackson ("The Hobbit"). During the event, Cameron revealed that his original plan to have Avatar 2 in theaters by late 2016 was too ambitious, so he decided to push its release date to late 2017. The reason? Cameron chose to be aggressive, writing all of the scripts for the three planned Avatar sequels at the same time. "We're writing three simultaneously." Cameron continued, "And we've done that so that everything tracks throughout the three films. We're not just going to do one and then make up another one and another one after that. And parallel with that, we're doing all the design. So we've designed all the creatures and the environments." Cameron expects that he and his team of screenwriters with help from screenwriters, Rick Jaffa, »

It’s that time of year again when the film world is buzzing with whispers, rumours, hot tips and fan favourites for Oscar success. I ventured out to the cinema this week to see two very different films – Alejandro Inarritu’s Birdman and Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings.
One film is my tip for Oscar glory, and the other wont be anywhere near a golden statue unless the cast and crew decide to treat themselves to a plastic replica from a souvenir shop on the Hollywood walk of fame. If you’ve seen both films I’m hoping you’ve worked out which is which without reading another word! If not… shame on you!
I’ll begin with Exodus. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this film. But, there’s not really much to write home about either. »

We started this website back in 2007, and since then, the names of some sequels seem to come up with reasonable regularity, albeit with no sign of the film itself. And in the time we've been going, yet more names have added themselves to the list of follow-ups that are seemingly stuck in development hell.
With the new Ghostbusters film set to escape and become a real thing in the next year or two, here's just a sample of the other projects struggling to get off the ground (with one or two edging closer to a greenlight than others...)

Baby on board!"Terminator" and "Aliens" star Michael Biehn, 58, and longtime girlfriend Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, 40, are expecting their first child together.

A zombie movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger could either be described as being a very fun or very dumb idea. However, Maggie looks like pretty unique, and it should give The Expendables 3 and Terminator Genesys star a chance to show off his serious side. Maggie will see Schwarzenegger play a Midwestern farmer who cares for his teenage daughter (Zombieland and Little Miss Sunshine’s Abigail Breslin) as she slowly transforms into a zombie. Based on the first look at footage below, the movie will be a rather sombre outing, and it’s definitely an intriguing premise. »

The post ‘Terminator 2′ Poster by Gabz appeared first on Sound On Sight.
The upcoming series relaunch Terminator: Genisys has been a divisive issue amongst the franchise's fans. You've got people like me who think the series all ready had a perfect finale with Terminator 2: Judgement Day. You've got genre fans that just want more full-on Terminator mayhem. There are the folks excited to see Arnold Schwarzenegger return to his most iconic role. Then there are the people that saw the trailer and wrote Alan Taylor's film as a sloppy rehash.
As usual, with these kinds of films, there is no solid consensus. But expectations for Terminator: Genisys seem especially mixed. I, for one, had two very different responses the two times I watched the trailer. The first time I was like, "Eh, ok. Looks kind of cool in a 'Star Trek Reboot' kind of way, I guess." But then I watched it again, this time with my mother, »

After scripting Terminator Genisys for Skydance Productions, Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have been staked to what Skydance is calling a two year first-look plus consulting deal. David Ellison’s production/financing concern wants to integrate the duo in multiple lines of its growing event-fare business. There is a first look at all theatrical and digital projects developed by the team, along with consultancy on overall content.
“Laeta and Patrick are first-class storytellers and world builders” said Skydance CEO David Ellison. “The work they have done to help us create the new Terminator trilogy is simply phenomenal and is only the beginning of the stories we are going to tell together. I am honored to welcome them into the Skydance family.”
Kalogridis and Lussier first teamed with Skydance in 2012 on an assignment to script an original science fiction adventure film hatched by Skydance. That led to the job writing Terminator Genisys, »

Described as a “unique first-look plus consulting deal,” the plan is to integrate the talent deeply into the studio across multiple lines of its business in a fashion similar to the workings of the old Hollywood studio system.
The two-year deal will allow Skydance to work with Kalogridis and Lussier as true creative partners. The comprehensive deal includes a first-look option on all theatrical and digital projects developed by the team, along with consultancy on the studios content overall.
“Laeta and Patrick are first-class storytellers and world builders,” said Skydance CEO David Ellison. “The work they have done to help us create the new ‘Terminator’ trilogy is simply phenomenal and is only the beginning of the stories we are going to tell together. I am honored to welcome them into the Skydance family. »
