Chappie Review

3 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Writer/director Neill Blomkamp has recently expressed some dismay about the final cut of his sophomore film, Elysium. With a large budget and audacious concept, that sci-fi film with a social conscience had a lot of potential, yet it only had scattered moments of brilliance. Blomkamp is certainly a filmmaker with ideas about placing sleek sci-fi stories into a crude, graffiti-strewn Johannesburg and watching how grit and genre can come together. However, the mesh between his humanist sci-fi allegories and high-octane action has always been inconsistent, dating back to his striking 2009 debut, District 9.

Chappie, his latest film, is yet another instance of a filmmaker thriving for the same ideals but coming up short. The genre here is not as much science fiction as it is cautionary 80s cinema that’s meant to prophesize the future schism between people and robotic prototypes. Blomkamp has admitted to being a fan of »

Hicks make-up test images for Neill Blomkamp’s Alien 5

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although the news that Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie) is set to resurrect the Alien franchise was met with a somewhat mixed reaction from fans, it seems there’s certainly a lot of excitement surrounding Michael Beihn’s potential return as Corporal Dwayne Hicks.

Hicks was featured in the initial concept art posted by Blomkamp, while Biehn reportedly confirmed that he’s been approached about reprising the role for the fifth instalment of the sci-fi series over the weekend. And now, thanks to The Terminator Fans, we’ve got a look at some make-up test images for the character from Generation Effects Inc…

Are you excited at the prospect of seeing Michael Biehn back on the big screen for Alien 5?

Horror / Sci-Fi Round-Up: Independence Day 2, Deep in the Darkness Blu-ray / DVD, Treachery

4 March 2015 10:09 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Welcome to another horror/sci-fi round-up! This time around we have word of two big cast confirmations for Independence Day 2, details on Scream Factory's Deep in the Darkness Blu-ray / DVD release, and information on the new Blanc/Biehn Productions film, Treachery.

Independence Day 2: Last night it was revealed that the first official cast member had signed on to star in Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2, the sequel to his 1996 film that featured massive alien-induced destruction and larger-than-life characters. It's now been confirmed that one of those characters will be coming back, as Emmerich tweeted last night that Jeff Goldblum will appear in the sequel, likely reprising his role as the brainy and dryly humorous David Levinson, who teamed up with fighter pilot Captain Steven Hiller to take down the mothership in the original film. Smith will not be coming back to reprise his role as Steven. »

Terminator Genisys: 12 Major Spoilers From The Leaked Script

4 March 2015 9:10 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

One of the most curious cinematic releases this summer is the fifth movie in the Terminator series, Terminator Genisys. While the returning presence of Arnold Schwarzenegger will be welcomed with open arms by the hardcore fans (assuming they even watch this one), there’s been a lot of negative press about the movie since the official plot synopsis was first announced, alongside a rather garish set of promotional images courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Since then, a test screening took place in January to a surprisingly promising response, while script reviews have stirred up everything ranging from high praise to utter disdain.

Reports suggest that the movie is currently being tinkered with in post-production following the first test screening, with the fight between the older and younger T-800s being a major bone of contention for the studio. Even so, with script reviews leaking pretty much the entire plot »

Watch: 45-Minute Doc 'Conan the Barbarian: Unchained' With Arnold Schwarzenegger, Oliver Stone, & More

3 March 2015 1:02 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to make his next non-“Expendables” franchise return to the big screen on July 1st with “Terminator: Genisys.” However, before the future Governator ever went back in time to kill Sarah Connor, he hefted a great sword in another epic '80s — and later — franchise. That series, of course, is "Conan," and it all began with 1982’s “Conan the Barbarian.” (Interesting side note — the first "Conan" film fared better at the box office than the first “Terminator” flick…and also the last “Expendables” outing.) Schwarzenegger’s first big franchise role — and the one that really catapulted him to wide renown (yes, “Hercules in New York,” I know) — Conan was and is a muscle-bound, sword-toting fantasy hero created by Robert E. Howard in the early 1930s. Schwarzenegger was unfamiliar with the character when producers Edward Summer and Edward R. Pressman first approached him about the film, »

"Genisys" Terminator To Be Genital-Free

26 February 2015 5:45 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

There's been various reports about the upcoming "Terminator Genisys" film, and about what's likely to be one of the film's pivotal scenes - where the older incarnation of Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 takes on his younger version from the original 1984 film.

Grumpy and well armed old Arnie vs. young and naked Arnie certainly raises some interesting questions, and a new report at fansite TheTerminatorFans has revealed one unexpected element - it seems the filmmakers won't have to worry about any naughty silhouettes or awkward camera angles as the T-800 won't be anatomically correct. Their source says:

"'The Terminator' has been castrated folks! He will now resemble a 'Ken Doll'. This is a bold daring move for Skydance… oh how different the previous movies would have turned out if this was the case… most likely with people saying this man doesn't have a penis? Without clothes the infiltrator would »

Sequel Buzz: Schwarzenegger Will Be Back for 'Terminator 6,' Unexpected Inspiration for 'Ghostbusters'

25 February 2015 6:50 PM, PST | | See recent news »

There are some franchises that will never work without their main star, and that's the truth for the Terminator movies and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The upcoming Terminator: Genisys is a reboot with new actors in every role except that of the T-800, which will again be played by the Austrian action hero. Occasionally others have stood-in for the part, but the series has used, and likely always will use, Arnie's likeness, even after he's dead. And unlike Hugh Jackman and Wolverine, Schwarzenegger will probably really play the Terminator for the rest of his life. He's at least on board for the next installment, to follow this summer's Genisys, according to the site TheArnoldFans. When asked if he'd appear in the...

10 Things You Need To Know About James Cameron’s Spider-Man

25 February 2015 9:33 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Sony clearly have no idea what they’re doing with Spider-Man. Sam Raimi’s trilogy of films started off strong, before dropping off a quality cliff into a terrible movie ravine with the final instalment. So precipitous was the descent, they decided to just junk the whole thing and start again with The Amazing Spider-Man reboot, which has already disenfranchised fans within two movies.

They considered starting again, bringing back Sam Raimi, and even pushing forward with an animated film from the makers of The Lego Movie. In the end they’ve gone ahead and thrown in with Marvel Studios, who will co-produce the next Amazing Spider-Man film – although, apparently, with a new cast and director. So they’re basically starting again.

If that seems like a bunch of bad ideas strung together, however, just know that it could’ve been worse. So much worse. In the early nineties Marvel weren’t doing so well, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger confirms that he’ll be back for Terminator Genisys sequels

25 February 2015 3:42 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger has cleared up any confusion over whether he’ll return for the next two Terminator Genisys sequels, saying “of course” he’ll be back.

Paramount Pictures announced the release dates for the two sequels last year, but it didn’t release any casting information. In an exclusive interview with Schwarzenegger, The Arnold Fans asked whether he’d be filming Terminator 6, to which the actor confirmed, “Yes, of course, next year.”

Terminator 6 opens stateside May 19, 2017, and thanks to Schwarzenegger’s comment, we now know production will begin on it sometime next year. Terminator 7 is set to open June 29, 2018.

There’s still no confirmation on whether the rest of Terminator Genisys cast will be back for either sequel, including Emilia Clarke who plays Sarah Connor and Jai Courtney who plays Kyle Reese.

Terminator: Genisys is set for release on July 1st 2015 with Arnold Schwarzenegger leading a cast that also »

Terminator Genisys 2: Arnold Schwarzenegger confirms return

24 February 2015 10:27 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Terminator 6 will shoot next year, and Arnold Schwarzenegger confirms that he'll be part of it...

Paramount's plan for this summer's Terminator: Genisys is for it to springboard a new trilogy of films in the series. To be fair, that was the plan too with Terminator: Salvation, but there does seem to be a little more confidence this time around.

Paramount's certainly been open about its plans in that regard, with Terminator: Genisys 2 - which it won't be called - already set for May 19th 2017. And in a surprise to very few people on the planet indeed, Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed that he'll be back - arf - for that one as well. He confirmed his reappearance to The Arnold Fans, as well as the fact that he'll be filming what'll be Terminator 6 next year.

Most of the key cast for Terminator: Genisys are believed to be on three picture deals. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Be Back After 'Terminator: Genisys' Too

24 February 2015 3:20 PM, PST | | See recent news »

This summer will see Paramount Pictures bring Terminator: Genisys to the big screen, and the studio already has two sequels in the works dated for May 19th, 2017 and June 19th, 2018. That close of a schedule could mean the sequels will be shot back-to-back, but we don't know for sure. What we do know now is that Arnold Schwarzenegger will at least be back for the second film. The star of the original Terminator franchise recently spoke with The Arnold Fans, and he was asked whether or not he would be back for what will be the sixth film in the series. Schwarzenegger simply says, "Yes, of course, next year.” However, let's take a moment to remember that Terminator Salvation was supposed to be the first in a new film series and that didn't work out at all. Now, I'm betting that this Terminator will be a little more successful than Terminator Salvation, »

24 February 2015 3:03 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Well, the actor has has now confirmed that he will indeed be back. Schwarzenegger made this announcement while talking to the eternally devoted fan-website The Arnold Fans.

This 'Titanic' Fan Theory Could Change the Way You Watch the Movie Forever

24 February 2015 1:01 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

What if Titanic isn’t an epic love story set against the backdrop of a maritime tragedy? What if Titanic is actually an epic...sci-fi movie?! That’s what one fan theory making its way around the World Wide Web proposes.

The theory started with someone named Matt on Facebook before going viral on Tumblr. Here’s the gist of it “Jack from Titanic was a time traveler that was only there to save Rose from committing suicide and altering the timeline.”

Watch: This deleted scene from ‘Titanic’ contains a terribly cheesy pun

The scene he’s referring to is when Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) finds Rose (Kate Winslet), hanging off the back of the boat, ready to throw herself into the ocean, and manages to talk her off the ledge.

“This may seem ridiculous but think about it for a moment,” it says. “If Rose jumped to her demise then the ship would »

24 February 2015 12:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a little over four months to go until Terminator: Genisys resets the beloved sci-fi franchise, star of the series Arnold Schwarznegger has confirmed what we suspected all along. The actor-politician, who rose to prominence playing the badass cyborg in James Cameron’s original Terminator, spoke out after a recent lecture in Europe to verify his appearance in the movie’s sequel.

“Yes, of course, next year,” he said, when asked by a reporter from fan site The Arnold Fans (via Coming Soon) if he would be a part of production on the sixth instalment. After the forthcoming fifth entry was confirmed for a summer 2015 opening, Paramount verified that two additional sequels had been pegged for release. The sixth – which we now know will commence production next year – is slated for a May 19th, 2017 release. The third film in the reboot trilogy is expected to arrive on June 29th, »

Back in October Warner Bros. unveiled the awesome slate of upcoming DC movies and dated Shazam! for April 2019. That's a long wait for any movie, and when you have a bright star already attached, the one and only Dwayne Johnson, maybe moving things along a little quicker wouldn't hurt. That’s what Johnson suggested recently at the Academy Awards when he was asked about the movie. And just like Arnold talking about Terminator sequels, this of course is not official »
