From Swashbucklers to Supermen: A Brief History of Action-Movie Heroes

22 hours ago | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There’s a moment in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise career-saver, franchise Mvp and the summer's best non-Imperator Furiosa action blockbuster — where the CIA director refers to the film's relentless hero as "the living manifestation of destiny." As a government official talking about an unpredictable agent, the line is patently (if knowingly) ridiculous. As Alec Baldwin talking about Tom Cruise, the dialogue sounds right on the money. That phrase could be dropped into the first sentence of his biography and nobody would think twice.

China Box Office: ‘Terminator’ Ends Blackout Period With a Bang

24 August 2015 7:32 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The end of Chinese cinema’s summer “blackout period” was marked with a powerful opening for “Terminator: Genisys.” It is the first major Hollywood title to be allowed release in China for two months.

Helped by several personal appearances in China by Arnold Schwarzenegger, the film scored $27 million, according to data tracker Ent Group, from 69,000 screenings on Sunday (Aug. 23).

That compares with its $89 million eight-week run in North America and its $352 million global haul to date. (Unconfirmed data point to “Terminator: Genisys” having added a further $10.5 million on Monday, for a two-day cumulative score of $37 million in China.)

That one day effort was enough to win the weekend, but placed it second in the weekly chart behind last week’s winner, the romantic comedy “Go Away, Mr Tumor.” The Daniel Wu-starring film added $36.1 million for a total of $67.9 million after 11 days.

Terminator Genisys 2 could be on its way after Chinese box office success

24 August 2015 3:16 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Hard to say, even harder to spell, Terminator Genisys was one of this year's most disappointing films. But after its recent bumper box office in China, the planned sequel could happen after all.

The fifth film in the Terminator franchise earned $27.4 million on Sunday after it was finally unveiled to an eager Chinese cinema-going public that hadn't seen another Hollywood film since Jurassic World earlier this summer.

This is after disappointing receipts in the Us, where it scored $89 million in its whole run off the back of a $155 million budget.

Many critics concluded that because of this, the franchise had died a death, despite a more impressive international haul of $264 million.

But with China's promising returns, the sequel - tentatively earmarked for a May 19, 2017 release - could be back on the cards.

They'll have to be quick, however: the rights to make Terminator films revert to James Cameron - the »

Record ‘Terminator: Genisys’ Debut Is Latest Heavy Metal Hit in China

23 August 2015 6:01 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The impressive $27.4 million opening in China by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “Terminator: Genisys” on Sunday reminded me of an off-the-record comment by an executive at a film company heavily invested in China a few years ago. “Chinese moviegoers love big metal things that clank,” he said, “especially if they go fast.” I didn’t give it much thought because, unless we’re talking about the French and Jerry Lewis, broad generalizations about the tastes of an entire populace are rarely valid. But I recalled it when Guillermo del Toro’s giant robot epic “Pacific Rim” made $100 million in China for Warner Bros. and launched a. »

Terminator Genisys tops Chinese box office, crosses $350 million worldwide

23 August 2015 1:42 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Almost two months after its release, Terminator Genisys has crossed the $350 million mark at the worldwide box office, thanks to a $27.4 million opening day in China today – the fourth biggest for a Hollywood movie in that market after Furious 7, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Terminator Genisys has pulled in just $89 million domestically, but has amassed a healthy $264 million internationally and should cross $400 million globally thanks to a strong showing in China. So, we might get to see that sixth Terminator movie after all…

'Terminator Genisys' Opens Big in China, Sequel Still Possible?

23 August 2015 12:34 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Terminator Genisys bombed in the states, pulling in just $89 million against a $155 million budget. It couldn't even crack the number one position at the domestic box office during its opening weekend, losing out to holdovers Jurassic World and Inside Out. Things looked bleak for its sequel prospects, even though Arnold Schwarzenegger has assured everyone that he will be back for two more franchise installments, setting this latest endeavor up as a trilogy. Well, that may prove to be true yet, as Terminator Genisys opens big at the Chinese box office.

To date, Terminator Genisys has earned $264 million at the foreign box office, placing its worldwide cume at $353 million. Now, in its first day of Chinese release, the film has generated enough interest to thrust it back to the #1 spot on the international weekend charts. The quasi-sequel/reboot hasn't been able to hold down that position since early July.

Summer Box Office Report Cards: Universal and Disney Dominate in 2015

23 August 2015 10:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The summer box office will go down as the second-biggest in history, but the wealth wasn’t evenly distributed. Instead, the results revealed a profound case of corporate income inequality.

Two studios, Universal and Disney, gobbled up most of the profits after fielding massive hits like “Jurassic World” and “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Together, their films made up seven of the top ten highest-grossing domestic releases this summer. That left the rest of their big studio brethren to fight for crumbs, with some finding little left over. Variety breaks down the numbers to see which bets paid off and which fell flat.

Universal 

Hits: It was a run of blockbusters for the ages, propelling Universal to heights no other studio has reached. The big winners include “Jurassic World,” a canny reboot of a franchise that had stalled with 2001’s “Jurassic Park III”; “Pitch Perfect 2,” an a cappella comedy that »

93 movie remakes and reboots currently in the works

19 August 2015 2:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From The Craft and The Birds to The Fugitive and She's All That, the many film reboots and remakes currently in the works...

Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.

Without further ado, here's what's coming up...

Akira

One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film, »

Where does summer 2015 leave movie stars?

18 August 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Adam Sandler, Tom Cruise, George Clooney, Schwarzenegger and The Rock went head to head this summer. What did we learn about star power?

The late summer success of Christopher McQuarrie's particularly enjoyable Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation may yet give Tom Cruise the biggest hit of his career. Right now, the movie has already grossed $373m worldwide, after three weeks on release, and once done, it's got a sporting chance of getting to the $694m taken by Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, its immediate predecessor in the series. Even if it doesn't, it's proven lucrative enough for Paramount Pictures to gamble again on Tom Cruise's star power, by getting Jack Reacher 2 before the cameras this year.

Cruise is one of the last few bona fide movie stars, one of the few instantly recognisable faces who can get people along to one of his productions. The problem, in recent times, »

Kevin Costner Claims Waterworld Is “Beloved”

18 August 2015 9:42 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal

Ah, the ’90s. There was a time filled with truly beloved blockbusters. James Cameron gave us Terminator 2, Steven Spielberg offered up Jurassic Park, Kevin Reynolds delivered Waterworld… Hold on – Waterworld wasn’t beloved. It was an infamous flop, the film that initiated star Kevin Costner’s rapid decline. Yet “beloved” is exactly how Costner described the film to Jeff Wells of Hollywood Elsewhere. Despite the film’s horrible reputation and its negative affect on the actor’s career, Costner defended the film ardently:

“I’m not sure you know how hard people work [on films]. I’m not sure you know how beloved the movie is around the world…”

Waterworld’s box-office total of $264 million doesn’t immediately scream failure, but when you consider the film’s vast $175 million budget (huge today, absolutely unfathomable in 1995) it was a disaster. The film was rife with production problems (apparently director Kevin Reynolds was »

Ranking 2015's summer blockbusters from worst to best: Is Mad Max better than Jurassic World?

16 August 2015 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Summer starts early when it comes to blockbuster movies - this year we saw Fast & Furious 7 and Avengers: Age of Ultron hit cinemas in April, with big movie following big movie as the weeks rolled on.

But which popcorn movie had you jumping for joy and which had you running for the exits? Digital Spy has ranked all of 2015's major tentpole releases below - but which movie's top of your list?

15. Terminator Genisys

He came back! But deep down Arnie probably should have stayed away from the role that turned him into a movie star some 30 years ago. Terminator Genisys was a jumbled, tired retread of the franchise's former glories that made one thing abundantly clear: if you're going to make a Terminator movie, it better be directed by James Cameron.

'The Usual Suspects': 20 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About This Modern Classic

15 August 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Who is Keyser Soze?

20 years ago this week (August 16, 1995), audiences uncovered the answer to that question -- and they're still reeling from it two decades later.

"The Usual Suspects" is an intricately plotted crime thriller that, despite the big twist at the end, never feels convoluted but rather like a puzzle we're putting together along with its nefarious main characters -- B-level criminals who find themselves under the shadow (and gun) of the crime lord equivalent of the devil incarnate.

The film won Kevin Spacey and writer Christopher McQuarrie ("Mission: Impossible: Rogue Nation") Oscars, and put director Bryan Singer on the path to make the "X-Men" films. In honor of the film's 20th anniversary, here are 20 facts you need to know about this modern classic.

1. Writer Chris McQuarrie got the title for his film from an article in Spy Magazine.

2. The film's most iconic image -- the titular characters »

Watch A Massive Montage Of Explosions From Arnold Schwarzenegger's Movies

14 August 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger isn.t known for his period dramas, his romantic comedies or his historical documentaries. The A-list action star carved his niche in Hollywood blowing shit up, and he just dropped a fantastic montage of all the best explosions from his decades-spanning career. You can check it out below:   Overkill: The Schwarzenegger Explosion Supercut was posted to Arnold.s YouTube page, and it documents his history of on-set disasters. Over the course of the montage, we see memorable moments from movies like Predator, True Lies, Commando, The Running Man, the Terminator films (of course), and Total Recall. The synthesizer music used for the montage is spectacular, and so very "Arnold." But I also love how the people behind the movie go into great detail for each movie or franchise. For example, the first explosion occurs in Terminator at the 1-minute and 13-second mark. Why wait?! And there are 32 total »

The new nostalgia: Releasing multiple updated versions of childhood memories

13 August 2015 5:37 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

In the modern era of filmmaking, ushered in when Steven Spielberg accidentally created the summer blockbuster with Jaws, cinema has become increasingly linked with nostalgia. For example, the early films of Spielberg and George Lucas were inspired by their childhood love of 40’s and 50’s adventure serials, yet directors from the next generation (most notably Jj Abrams, whose Super 8 is effectively a love letter Spielberg and whose next film is a sequel to Lucas’ beloved sci-fi classic) tend to go full circle and wear their childhood influences on their sleeve, creating effective pieces that are nostalgic about what was already a piece of nostalgia to begin with. Yet audiences are beginning to reject the idea of nostalgia. This summer alone, the two movies that have been trying to sell audiences nostalgia for the 80’s, Terminator: Genisys and Pixels, have both flopped at the box office, as audiences prove »

Dolph Lundgren's Kindergarten Cop 2 Has To Be Awesome, Right?

13 August 2015 2:19 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Dolph Lundgren is trying to prove once and for all that he’s not just a poor man’s Arnold Schwarzenegger by taking over one of the Austrian thespian’s most beloved films and making it his own. No, not Terminator. Or Conan. Or Predator. Nope, Lundgren is going to star in Kindergarten Cop 2. In fact, he’s already filming the sequel right now.  According to the supremely named Manly Movie, Lundgren is currently filming the sequel that no one asked for and can’t believe is even happening in Vancouver, Canada. Pictures of the Rocky IV star wearing a full on suit and tie while standing in front of a room of children on the set of Kindergarten Cop 2 have emerged, and it’s impossible not to raise just a wee smile at the possibilities.
