How Lucy Ricardo Gave Birth to ‘Mission: Impossible’

1 hour ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

If it weren’t for Lucy and Ricky Ricardo, Tom Cruise would not be saving the free world in “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation,” which opens July 31.

In 1950, Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz formed Desilu Prods. and the huge success of “I Love Lucy” turned Desilu into a powerhouse, creating many more TV series and owning two studio lots. Many successful years later, Variety ran a story on Aug 17, 1966, saying Desilu had firmed a lucrative deal with CBS for a fifth season of “The Lucy Show” and was debuting two one-hour series in the fall: “Star Trek” on NBC and “Mission: Impossible” on CBS.

That’s a pretty good slate for one year.

The series “Mission: Impossible,” under creator-producer-writer Bruce Geller, ran 1966-73 but it was much slower to transfer to the bigscreen than its stable mate (the first “Star Trek” movie debuted in 1979). The film “Mission: Impossible,” which marked Cruise’s producing debut, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger Celebrates 68th Birthday With Ex-Maria Shriver in Beverly Hills—See the Pic

2 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger celebrated his 68th birthday yesterday—with ex-Maria Shriver by his side.  The Terminator star was spotted arriving at the Montage hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. on Thursday, where he was joined by his 59-year-old ex and two of their children, Katherine, 25, and Christina, 24.  Schwarzenegger, who was dressed casually in a navy blue polo shirt and khaki slacks, was photographed exiting his fancy convertible sports car. Shriver, meanwhile, looked chic in a dark blue wrap dress teamed with a white handbag and classic sandals.  The former governor of California and the veteran broadcaster split in 2011 after 25 years of marriage shortly after the actor confessed that »

Terminator Genisys - Where Do We Go From Here?

6 hours ago | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

For nearly a century, sci-fi cinema has been fueled by the notion that technology can be a dangerous and destructive force. Few films use this paranoia to greater effect than James Cameron's first two Terminator films, in which sentient machines have become so sophisticated and malevolent that they can send androids back in time to assassinate human resistance fighters before they are even born. The other films in the franchise have had lukewarm receptions as they struggle to find interesting new directions to take the story, and the recent fifth film, Terminator: Genisys, is unfortunately no exception.

Genisys' early hype benefited greatly from Cameron's endorsement of the film as the "real" third movie in the Terminator franchise, as well as the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to the role that made him a star. He wasn’t joking when he said he would be back, and in a notable »

10 Best Arnold Schwarzenegger Action Movies, Ranked

30 July 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

From time-traveling murderbots to nuke-stealing terrorists, there's nothing Arnold Schwarzenegger hasn't punched, kicked or detonated.

The venerable action hero and Hollywood icon owned the '80s and '90s with such action classics as "The Terminator," "Predator" and "Total Recall." Whether armed with a small arsenal or just with his fists, the once and future Governator proved that there's no problem that can't be solved without a generous helping of violence, followed by a good post-death blow quip.

While the action star fell a bit short this summer with his return to the land of Skynet in "Terminator Genisys," we still love seeing the big guy on the big screen. As Arnuld turns 68 (?!) today, let's celebrate his birthday with ten of the greatest gifts he's ever given us -- his action movies.

The top 50 80s kids' TV themes

29 July 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Bananaman to Grange Hill, join us in a spot of TV nostalgia as we celebrate 50 great 1980s kids' TV theme songs...

There comes a time to turn away from the horrors of the world and retreat underneath the soft, comforting duvet of nostalgia. That time is Friday. That metaphorical duvet is below.

Here are fifty of the best kids’ TV theme songs (spread over two pages and in arbitrary order) of the 1980s. Some, like Alan Hawkshaw’s distinctive Grange Hill intro, are unarguable classics of the era, while others, like Mike Harding's Count Duckula, only started in the late-eighties and spent the rest of their run in the next decade.

Obviously, there being only 50 on this list, we may have missed out your favourite (deliberately or otherwise). Let us know if so, but remember that links may take a while to appear in the comments thread because »

Looking back at Michael Crichton's Runaway

29 July 2015 9:45 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Tom Selleck and Gene Simmons starred in Michael Crichton's 1984 sci-fi thriller, Runaway. Ryan looks back at a flawed yet intriguing film...

Late 1984 saw two killer robot movies make their debut in Us cinemas. You've probably heard of the first one, released in October: The Terminator, the film that launched the career of James Cameron and cemented Arnold Schwarzenegger's status as a movie star.

The second was Runaway, another sci-fi thriller that, in theory, could have been the bigger hit. It starred Tom Selleck and Kiss singer-bassist Gene Simmons. It was written and directed by Michael Crichton, the director of the superb Westworld and writer of such best-selling novels as The Andromeda Strain and The Terminal Man, both adapted into great films. Six years after Runaway, Crichton would write Jurassic Park, a book that is still sending ripples through pop culture today.

Runaway ended up making about $7m in »

Watch Arnold Schwarzenegger recreate the ‘Terminator 2′ bar scene with WWE wrestlers

27 July 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Arnold Schwarzenegger has had an illustrious career as an iconic Hollywood leading man in both action movies and comedies, his most popular role to date continues to be that of the T-800 in the Terminator franchise. Schwarzenegger brought the character back one more time earlier this summer with Terminator: Genisys, establishing the character’s lasting appeal in the lead-up to the movie, most notably with a prank involving a display at Madame Tussaud’s wax museum.

The release of the movie is not the last that the public has seen of the character, however, as the videogame publisher 2K Sports announced today that pre-ordering the WWE 2k16 game will give players a unique opportunity; a chance to square off against current wrestlers as the Terminator himself.

To promote this new feature of the game, a trailer was released that saw Schwarzenegger reprise the role once again for a »

Terminator: Genisys passes $300 million at the box office

27 July 2015 4:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It has been destroyed by critics (read our reviews here and here)and was called the Worst Blockbuster of All-Time by our own Anghus Houvouras – but Terminator: Genisys passed a milestone this weekend.

Terminator: Genisys added another $2.5 million to its domestic total and has now made $305 million worldwide, the majority of which has come from overseas. In the Us, the movie has made just $85 million, but its worldwide take of $219 million (taken mostly in South Korea, United Kingdom and Russia) has helped push the movie past the $300 million marker.

However, the movie cost a whopping $185 million – and that doesn’t include marketing costs – so there is still some way for it to go before it becomes “profitable”. Terminator: Genisys is currently the 14th biggest movie of the year, and is being outperformed by The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water, Taken 3 and Mad Max: Fury Road. »

The Actors Who Could Have Starred In Films, But Didn’t

26 July 2015 3:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Star Wars famously takes place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, and this week we found out about a parallel universe of casting in the film series. Neil Calloway looks at the actors who didn’t star in films, but could have…

The news that Michael Jackson wanted to play Jar Jar Binks in the Star Wars prequels is bizarre, and I can’t quite decide whether he would have improved the character or completely ruined the franchise with his appearance. Perhaps the most interesting part is that Jackson wanted the character to be created with make up and prosthetics – he worked with make up genius Rick Baker on the video for Thriller – rather than the CGI preferred by Lucas. There are many, many issues with the Star Wars prequels, but one of them is the over reliance on computer effects on practical effects. So maybe »

The Summer That Rebooted the Reboot

25 July 2015 6:21 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Does Hollywood try to remake/sequelize/franchise-extend every single one of its successful movies? Sometimes it feels that way, but there’s a little more nuance to studio practices than that. If you’re looking for meaning in this summer’s blockbuster season – not always easy – you could call it Dr. JurassicMax or How Hollywood Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Reboot. Rebooting franchises isn’t as common, well-received, or lucrative as you might think. Today let’s look briefly at the history of the reboot – and how this summer changed it.

First, what technically counts as a reboot? One school would say that anytime the cast shuffles, it’s a reboot, meaning we’re now on the second reboot (and third iteration) of Spider-Man films. That’s pretty rare; far more often, duration between films is the deciding factor, and it just doesn’t feel right to slap »

Maggie review – post-apocalyptic teenage nonsense

23 July 2015 10:20 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

A grim zombie outing starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin that drowns in body fluids and emo slush

It’s a zombie film staple: that awful moment when a loved one has been infected by the virus and now you’ve got some hard choices. Maggie stretches this idea out to one interminably boring and mawkish film, overlaid with Ya-dystopian self-pity. In a standard-issue post-apocalyptic world of car-wreck-strewn highways and creepy deserted convenience stores, Maggie (Abigail Breslin) has been infected by the zombie bug; she’s in the initial stages of skin discolouration on her hands, being cared for by her grizzled old uninfected dad, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. He has already had the task of taking his axe to his erstwhile lovely neighbours, who came shambling on to his property. Now he has to decide if and when to flick the safety off his shotgun and lead poor, confused »

8 Reasons Why The Terminator Franchise Is Dead

23 July 2015 2:59 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

TriStar Pictures

23 years ago, Terminator 2, James Cameron’s sequel to his unexpectedly popular The Terminator, grossed an almost-unprecedented $520 million at the worldwide box office. Cut to today, and Alan Taylor’s Terminator Genisys stands at less than $300 million after three weeks on release, struggling to even make back the total of its production and marketing costs.

It’s quite a fall from grace for what was once one of the pre-eminent science fiction movie franchises; what’s more, Genisys has also prompted the worst critical evaluation of any Terminator film to date. After five films, including two attempted reboots (Salvation and Genisys), the future of the series appears more dire than ever.

It’s now up to Paramount and Skydance Productions to decide how they’ll proceed with those proposed sequels to Genisys. Pitched as the first in a new trilogy, and with an ending left wide open for follow-ups, »
