In an exclusive interview with Flickering Myth, actor Wayne Bastrup discusses his role in the upcoming sci-fi blockbuster Terminator Genisys alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emilia Clarke. Bastrup, who has also featured in hit shows CSI: NY and The Mentalist, sat down with Senior Staff Writer Scott Davis about his acting, his hopes for the future and working alongside Mr. Universe…
Scott Davis: Terminator Genisys is arguably one of the most anticipated summer blockbusters this year – how did you become involved with the film? Did you have to go through an audition process for the role?
Wayne Bastrup: My wonderful manager was able to get me into the audition room. They were looking for an actor to play the younger (1984 version) of J.K. Simmons character. I remember when I read the breakdown and thought to myself, “Really? I look like J.K.?” It had never crossed my mind. He »

We’ve been talking about The Legend of Conan movie for quite some time now, but the film has yet to go into production. Last summer producer Fredrik Malmberg predicted that they’d start shooting in the spring of 2015, but clearly that never happened so now he’s got his eye on a fall start instead, soon after Arnold Schwarzenegger finishes promoting Terminator: Genisys: “I think this fall would be perfect. The sooner the better!” [caption id="attachment_464173" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via The Movie Database[/caption] On top of that, The Arnold Fans also shared a few quotes from writer Chris Morgan revealing how The Legend of Conan will connect to the 1982 original: “A light-hearted Conan?! Crom! No. Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the ’82 film…but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life — a thief, a warrior, »

It was only a matter of time before Conan would come back onto the screen to crush enemies, see them driven before you and hear the lamentations of their women, and now it appears the project in question, The Legend of Conan, has once again picked up steam. Screenwriter and producer Chris Morgan (Furious 7) and fellow producer Fredrik Malmberg (the 2011 Conan the Barbarian remake) confirm the script is ready, and it will be a direct sequel to 1982's Conan the Barbarian, taking place 30 years later. As reported previously, Arnold Schwarzenegger is slated to return as the titular character. The interview and exclusive comes from TheArnoldFans.com. Among the information mentioned above, the sequel will also apparently not be given "a tame rating" and will feature Schwarzenegger as "aged, pissed and battle ready." Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the '82 film...but 30 years later. »

While the upcoming "Terminator Genisys" plans to play about with the continuity and tone of the original "Terminator" franchise, the other classic revival of a Schwarzenegger-led franchise has no such plans.
Speaking with TheArnoldFans.com, "The Legend of Conan" producer/co-writer Chris Morgan and Fredrik Malmberg say that the upcoming new 'Conan' film will both stay true to Robert E. Howard's vision, but also be fiercely loyal to John Milieus' legendary original 1982 film. In other words, don't expect an R-rated film here:
"A light-hearted Conan?! Crom! No. Our tone is a logical extension of the character established in the '82 film...but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life - a thief, a warrior, a pirate, a king, a legend - and is now an older man. Think Unforgiven...with a sword-wielding barbarian.
Milius was a visionary. And a hero of mine. »

If you've been waiting for an update on Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Legend Of Conan, I have some good news for you. Producer Fredrik Malmberg recently told The Arnold Fans that the script is done, and production could start as early as this fall, once Schwarzenegger is done promoting Terminator: Genisys. Malmberg also told the site that "Our marching orders from the studio were to create a film worthy as a successor to the 1982 film, which was pretty brutal." »

The constant big-budget movie releases with their A-list stars, state of the art technology, and expensive advertising campaigns can make it easy to forget that most of the movie industry just doesn’t have that kind of money. Most filmmakers are working with limited resources, yet producing films that are in many cases better than those big money movies. Other filmmakers work with even less, producing films that, in the end, are often relegated to the more obscure cable channels and the bargain bin at Amazon. B-movies have been called Hollywood’s stepchild, but what they really are is its life blood.
Only a few of these films make money, but they have a greater value than simply being good for business: they are good for filmmaking. With little money, no stars, scripts that are disjointed, and often featuring poor production values, the B-movie is the primordial ooze from which new talent and ideas crawl. »

Wondering about the direction of The Legend Of Conan? "Think Unforgiven... with a sword-wielding barbarian"...
Plans remain afoot for a new Conan movie, one that ignores the recent Jason Momoa-headlined reboot in favour of getting Arnold Schwarzenegger back in the lead role for the third time. The new film, going under the title The Legend Of Conan, is being written by Chris Morgan (whose pen has been responsible for a fair few of the Fast & Furious movies). And in a new interview with The Arnold Fans, Morgan has been keen to get across that his Conan is going to take a different approach to the reboot.
"Our tone is a logical extenstion of the character established in the 82 film... but 30 years later. When we meet him again, Conan has been many things over the course of his life - a thief, a warrior, a pirate, a king, a legend »
The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee, Courtney B. Vance, and J.K. Simmons, »

In 2029, the war between man and machine has desolated the Earth, leaving humanity all but wiped out. Pockets of survivors remain – either living as slaves serving their technological overlords, or as resistance fighters attempting to overthrow the sentient defense network that controls the machines. From this wasteland, two soldiers are sent back in time to Los Angeles, 1984 in order to influence the outcome of a conflict that hasn’t taken place yet. One is an unstoppable cyborg assassin, the other a human guerrilla fighter. Serving on opposite sides of the battle, they share the same target: Sarah Connor, »

Have you ever fancied seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger in a tussle with none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger? Of course you have. Unfortunately, the fact that there.s only one version of the Austrian behemoth means that seeing that battle in the flesh was always going to be slightly unlikely. But the good folks in charge of Terminator: Genisys weren't going to miss the opportunity to have Arnie fighting Arnie, and the latest clip for the blockbuster shows us just that. Boom! How can you not be excited about that? Not only do we get to see 1984.s Arnold Schwarzenegger launch at his more elderly counterpart with gusto, but we also get to see Genisys. Arnie smashing him in the head with a large object. Plus, this TV spot also informs us that it.s taking part on a bridge, which must mean that at least one of them will be »

Director James Cameron's 1991 super-sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day is widely regarded as legendary action film that ups the ante of its predecessor to monumental proportions in both story and spectacle. Sporting a then-unheard-of budget of over $100 million, it was a groundbreaking effects extravaganza. However, it seems that one of its more indelible audio effects - the T-1000 moving through an asylum door - came at a cost that couldn.t even buy a soda today: 75 cents! In a piece by Wired celebrating the history of the pioneering effects company Industrial Light & Magic, an interesting tidbit about a key scene in Terminator 2 surfaced. It turns out that the unforgettable scene where Robert Patrick.s T-1000 interrupts the main group.s institutional jailbreak of Sarah Connor by squeezing his liquid metal form through a barred door was supplemented by a seemingly futuristic smooth phasing sound effect. However, the audio was actually »
He wasn’t kidding when he said he’d be back. Although it’s beginning to sound more like a threat than a promise at this point. No matter how many times you dip it in lava, cover it in molten metal or hire McG to direct it, The Terminator can never die. After four films, a theme park ride, countless books and comics and a TV show, the future still feels far away.
Arnold Schwarzenegger finally returns as the noticeably saggier-looking synthetic robot killer in a couple of weeks time, when Terminator Genisys further messes up the already incomprehensible timeline of paradoxes the franchise is built on. This time, the T-800 is nice from the start, sent back even further to protect Sarah Connor before the events of the first film.
The Terminator franchise has a rich mythology (stop laughing at the back), even if it’s often difficult to parse. »

"I'll be back." And now here he is. Almost 31 years after the release of the original, Park Circus is planning a global re-release of James Cameron's The Terminator, the sci-fi classic that started the franchise. We all know they have a brand new Terminator movie coming out this summer, Terminator: Genisys (watch the trailer), also with Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator again, so it's likely all one big coordinated brand promotion across the entire world. Remind everyone of the original Terminator and bring that back to the forefront. Personally I prefer T2, but this first one is just as badass. And now I want to watch it again. Here's the two new trailers for James Cameron's The Terminator, for the 2015 re-release this summer: Park Circus will be re-releasing the original The Terminator in theaters this summer. "Where it all began. Returning to cinemas worldwide in June 2015. He's back. »

In 1984 when a clanging, hulking piece of metal became a sensation and launched a franchise that continues this year with the fifth installment, "Terminator: Genisys." While skepticism is high and excitement is tempered for that movie, the original "The Terminator" is still one of the finest in the series, and now it's coming back to the big screen.
