Miles Teller and Jai Courtney are no strangers to the Hollywood movie making machine. Miles has won critical acclaim for roles in films such as "The Spectacular Now" and the upcoming Sundance hit "Whiplash" as well as candidly charm audiences in mainstream fare like "Footloose" and January's "That Awkward Moment." Courtney is an Aussie TV veteran who was "showcased" alongside Bruce Willis in "A Good Day to Die Hard" and had supporting roles in "Jack Reacher" and "I, Frankenstein." Both men will be seen next in Neil Burger's "Divergent," but it goes without saying that most movie fans are interested in their next big projects. Courtney was recently cast in the "Terminator" reboot "Terminator: Genesis" as Kyle Reese, a character previously played by Michael Biehn and Anton Yelchin. Teller has become a somewhat controversial choice to play the stretchy Reed Richards (aka Mr. Fantastic) in 20th Century Fox's revamp of the "Fantastic Four. »

"I've always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when A Good Day to Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, 'Really? They're gonna make another one?' and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it's healthy to have that because you want it to be something special, you want to keep that eye for quality sharp."
"But when I read this, I was pretty into it and the story's cool. It's attached a great cast as well. I think Emilia Clarke's wonderful and she's got a lot of support and stuff behind her. And Jason Clarke as well I'm a big admirer of so, yeah, it's gonna be really cool, »

The world collectively rolled their eyes when it was announced that one of the most famous franchises in history would be ‘rebooted’ in 2015. Terminator is one of the most iconic films of all time and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day, is probably one of the only sequels to outmatch its outstanding predecessor in almost every way. The two subsequent sequels that followed were less than spectacular to say the least…and so here we are with a newly minted Terminator series due in a mere year and a half, widely rumoured to be titled Terminator: Genesis.
Ordinarily I would beg for Hollywood to leave this franchise alone after the terrible Terminator 3: Rise Of The MacHines and Terminator: Salvation, however this new film will see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. The chance to see The Terminator return for potentially the last time is definitely a tantalising one, »

Sharing in the skepticism that many actors feel- and $omehow overcome- regarding appearing in a reboot, Jai Courtney told IGN that he wasn’t sure about taking the role of Kyle Reese in Terminator: Genesis. Echoing statements made by other actors in recent updates of older properties- like Joel Kinnaman in RoboCop & Miles Teller in Fantastic Four- Courtney implies that it took the inclusion of other great talent involved to make him feel like Terminator: Genesis was a worthy project. He also points out how this won’t be the first time he’s done something like this.
“I’ve always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when [A Good Day to] Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, ‘Really? They’re gonna make another one?’ and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it’s healthy to have »

In this day and age, its hard not to be skeptical of any reboot or remake. And it's not only fans that feel this way, but also the actors that appear in such cinematic undertakings. The Terminator franchise has quite a legacy, and newly cast Jai Courtney reveals that he was highly skeptical of Terminator: Genesis, where he will appear as Kyle Reese, father of John Connor.
The story will apparently jump through the timeline of the original four-part saga, working like 2009's Star Trek in setting up a new series of events. This will not be a direct continuation of what's come before it, but instead serves as a true reboot of the material. As the timeline shifts, the narrative will be free from its past complications in a way we haven't seen before. Events from 1984's The Terminator and 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day will be revisited, and »

In the late 80s, Carolco was one of the biggest studios in Hollywood, but by 1995, it was gone. Ryan charts its dramatic rise and fall...
Paul Verhoeven is not a happy man. It's 1994, and the Dutch director of (among other things) RoboCop and Total Recall is in a pivotal meeting with executives at Carolco Pictures. They're in the boardroom to discuss Crusade: a lavish, $100m historical drama described as Spartacus meets Conan.
With a script by Walon Green (The Wild Bunch, WarGames), and a cast headed up by Arnold Schwarzenegger, it sounds like the kind of star-filled, opulent film Carolco Pictures is famous for making. The supporting cast includes Jennifer Connelly and Robert Duvall. The script is vibrant and brash. There are massive sets being built in rural Spain. But privately, Carolco's bosses are anxious; they have another hugely expensive project in the works »
Director: Mikael Hafstrom
Running Time: 115 minutes
Synopsis: Escape artist Ray Breslin (Stallone) makes a living out of testing the security of prisons by going in and getting out. But when he finds himself betrayed and left for dead in an impossibly complex facility, he must team up with the mysterious Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) to form… An Escape Plan.
“You look like a man who finds things interesting,” says Arnie to Sly. I honestly don’t know if that’s a really good line or a really bad line. This is indicative of the whole film which finds itself falling between two big, meaty stools, if you can imagine such a thing. On one hand it is forgettable, incredibly cliched, predictable, forgettable, poorly acted and not very memorable. On the other hand it is an »

While some parts of Emilia Clarke's new role in the "Terminator: Genesis" film are cool -- like working alongside the original "Terminator" star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is reprising his original robot role in the new movie -- others aren't so fun. For example: Clarke's unforgiving diet.
To get into shape to play Sarah Connor, in addition to adopting a tough exercise routine the "Game of Thrones" star has had to give up all her favorite foods. "I've been spending all day, every day in weapons training," Clarke tells U.K. InStyle Magazine. "I've been shooting guns, weightlifting, kickboxing and generally kicking a lot of a**. On top of that, I have not been allowed to eat anything that might taste good at all."
Clarke has been forbidden to eat wheat, sugar, caffeine or dairy products. "Everything on these plates looks amazing but, heartbreakingly I'm not allowed to eat any of it, »
Arnold Schwarzenegger has had a lawsuit filed against him. Twenty two current and former inmates of a Central California prison have gone to court against the ex governor. The essence of the lawsuit springs from a number of Valley Fever attacks that supposedly killed 30 inmates and left others with “horrible symptoms,” according to TMZ. Valley Fever, or Coccidioidomycosis, is caused by a fungus that enters the body through the lungs. The disease resides in the soil and is common in the California. Schwarzenegger is currently filming the new Terminator movie, and so far does not appear to have commented. The inmates have also gone to court against current governor [ Read More ]

And even if you’re not, there’s a very good chance you’re at least familiar with his face, given that the veteran character actor has appeared in more than 150 films and TV shows, including The Terminator, both Gremlins movies, and Star Trek: Next Generation.
On Friday night, a new documentary about Miller – called, appropriately enough, That Guy Dick Miller — will receive its world premiere at SXSW. »

While The Legend of Conan still has a long road ahead before production starts, star Arnold Schwarzenegger, screenwriter Andrea Berloff, producer Fredrik Malmberg and original Conan The Barbarian star Sven-Ole Thorsen (Thorgrim) recently spoke about this highly-anticipated sequel with ArnoldFans.com.
The plot takes place several years after Conan The Barbarian, with the title character getting back into action as he must fight to keep his throne, and live up to his own legend. The 66-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that age doesn't mean anything to him, and he's looking forward to getting back into action on the set.
"Conan is very much alive. Age doesn't mean anything to me, because I work out every day. I work out twice a day, as a matter of fact. At night I work out with weights, and in the morning I do cardiovascular training. So for me, to get on the set and »
80,000 calories equals about 40 days' worth of food for the average person (based on a 2,000 calorie per day diet). But for Arnold Schwarzenegger, it's simply one giant meal. The former California governor teamed up with the Epic Meal Time gang, the team behind the You-Tube based Canadian cooking show, which features insanely high-calorie meals. And leave it to the Terminator himself to whip up a meal with larger-than-life proportions, frying up an enormous sandwich on his own M47 Patton Tank. "We have the tank right now, ready to cook," Schwarzenegger says as he cracks an ostrich egg on top of the M47. "The steak and egger sandwich, yummy." He then whips out 9,840 calories »
"Terminator: Genesis" the first new film in a stand-alone trilogy, has finalized its main cast and will reportedly acknowledge the films of director James Cameron, creator of the 'Terminator' universe with a linking story arc:
According to new reports, "Terminator: Genesis" will see characters time-traveling and finding themselves moving through the events of "The Terminator" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day". There will also reportedly be a third time period outside of those films, set in the future and constituting a 'home base' for some of the characters.
"Most of it will be done in New Orleans, with some filming in San Francisco and maybe a little in La. The last 'Terminator' was when I was Governor. So I couldn't be in that movie, but now »

(Cbr) Following a month-long hiatus coinciding with the Winter Olympics, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is back with a new episode on ABC tonight, titled "T.A.H.I.T.I." That's not all that's new: The episode also sees the debut of veteran actor Bill Paxton as John Garrett, a S.H.I.E.L.D. field agent who has a long history with Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg). One week later, Jaimie Alexander will guest star in her "Thor" and "Thor: The Dark World" role of Asgardian warrior Sif, representing one of the strongest unions yet between "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and the Marvel Studios film franchise (beyond Marvel movie mainstay Gregg starring in the show, of course). Paxton and Sif's appearances follow the recent revelation that Mike Peterson (J. August Richards) -- part of the show since the pilot -- is now the show's version of Deathlok, the most famous »

Just a few weeks before filming starts on the fifth "Terminator" film, "Terminator: Genesis," the series' original star, Arnold Schwarzenegger is speaking out about the movie for the first time, telling fan site TheArnoldFans.com that he's happy to be re-joining the franchise.
At the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio this weekend -- yes, Schwarzenegger has his own annual athletic festival -- the site caught up with the actor, and asked him to discuss "Genesis." Schwarzenegger happily obliged, revealing that the shoot was expected to last between four and four-and-a-half months and would take place primarily in New Orleans, with some filming set for San Francisco and possibly Los Angeles.
"I'm really looking forward to that because as you know, the last time when they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor and so I couldn't be in that movie but now I'm back again and they »

Say what you want about Arnold Schwarzenegger, but the fact remains that the guy is back in a big way. Oddly enough, his most recent spate of films have been quite watchable, and he looks to keep that record going with the bullet-addled DEA thriller Sabotage.
The film features Arnie leading a team of badass undercover DEA agents – “the best in the business,” naturally – who run afoul of an international drug cartel by ripping off millions of ill-gotten dollars. The result is what’s expected from an Arnold Schwarzenegger film: body counts rise, the agents find themselves at odds with both the Feds and the cartel, and there’s a lot of testosterone-fueled shouting.
The most recent clip from Sabotage gives us Arnold having it out with one of his team members, played by Joe Manganiello (Magic Mike). As muscles flex, Arnie proves that he’s still the baddest badass in the room. »

Terminator fans have a lot to be excited about these days. Heck, even folks that have soured on the franchise may have reason to be interested again. Terminator: Genesis is set to begin filming next month and, with that, comes some news on what direction the series is heading in. Some of what’s floating around is coming straight from the mouth of the T-800 himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and some of it is coming from the often-reliable folks at Moviehole.
First, let’s look at this quote from the Austrian Oak about the production itself:
“We start filming in the middle or in the end of April and it will be a four or four-and-a-half month long shoot. We will be filming it in New Orleans with some of it in San Francisco and maybe a little of it in La but most of it will be done in New Orleans. »

The 66-year-old actor told Thearnoldfans.com that the four or four-and-a-half month long shoot will start in the middle or in the end of April.
He said that they will be filming it in New Orleans with some of it in San Francisco and maybe a little of it in La but most of it will be done in New Orleans, Contactmusic reported.
Schwarzenegger said that he was looking forward to that as the last time when they did the 'Terminator,' it was when he was (California) Governor and. »

For something that's so engrained in pop culture, the Terminator franchise sure has had a hard time staying on its feet. Over the 30 years since James Cameron's first film blew audiences' minds and gave cinema one of its great icons, the actual rights to the film version of the character have bounced around all over the place. Of the four films so far, each has been produced by different production companies, and only Terminator 3 and Terminator: Salvation were distributed by the same studio. Most recently, super producer Megan Ellison, who paid millions to buy the rights to the franchise, backed off of the project after developing it for years, and instead handed the reins to her brother David Ellison's Skydance Productions (Star Trek Into Darkness, World...

(Cbr) Arnold Schwarzenegger is back — well, almost back, returning to his iconic role as the T-800 for director Alan Taylor’s upcoming "Terminator Genesis", which stars the likes of Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney. During a recent festival appearance, Schwarzenegger said he expects to begin production on the new "Terminator" movie shortly: “I’m really looking forward to that because as you know, the last time when they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor and so I couldn’t be in that movie but now I’m back again and they are very excited about having me in the film.” “The script is fantastic,” he added, “so I’m really looking forward to this film.” In other "Terminator" news, it appears that Schwarzenegger isn’t the only returning player in the mix. Moviehole has a somewhat spoilery report on a bunch of different characters we »
