The Expendables introduced the idea of gathering together the world's greatest action heroes all in the same franchise, but many of the actors in the series are past their prime. Though, that is part of the charm. But what if Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger had teamed up for a movie in the 80s playing their most iconic characters? Kurt Russell wanted it to happen and even pitched it.
While promoting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kurt Russell spoke with Fox 5 DC and, at one point, the subject of Snake Plissken joining up with the Guardians came up. While Russell was quick to dismiss that idea, he did reveal that he wanted Snake to join up with the likes of John Rambo and John McClane in a movie. Here is what he had to say about it.

Action and serial killer suspense thriller collide with the new genre film Black Rose, starring Kristanna Loken and action star Alexander Nevsky. Loken, who established herself as a bona fide female lead and star in the huge Hollywood hit Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, has been very busy in the action and genre world with releases like Bloodrayne, In the Name of the King, Attack on Darfur, and Painkiller Jane. Her role in Black Rose is that of Emily, a serial killer profiler opposite Nevsky, who plays a Russian detective on the same case. In this exclusive interview, Loken briefly discusses her career in overview and her latest project Black Rose.
How did Black Rose come about as a project for you?
Zoe Saldana has had one hell of a career thus far. Between franchises like Star Trek, Avatar, and Guardians of the Galaxy, she has made a business out of playing badass characters. In an industry where it’s easy to get typecast as “the girlfriend,” “the mom,” or “the girl,” Saldana has managed to make a name for herself as one of today’s big female action stars.
Of course, this wasn’t done by accident. Actors spend a lot of time and energy deciding the best path for their careers, and Saldana is no exception. Speaking with our very own Nancy Tapia while at the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 press junket, Saldana expressed how important playing roles like Gamora is to her.
“It’s unnatural to me, as an artist, to make a career out of just playing girlfriends. I’m not talking down at it. I don’t find it demeaning. »

“I’m here to help you. I’m Reese. Sergeant Tech-Com, DN38416. Assigned to protect you. You’ve been targeted for termination!”
The Terminator Screens Saturday Night, April 22nd, at Midnight at The Hi-Pointe Theater ( 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117). Admission is only $5.
Who would have thought a low budget science fiction movie aptly named The Terminator would be so iconic 33 years later as well as start the meteoric rise of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a legend in cinema, introduce director James Cameron to Hollywood as a force to be reckoned with, give a new meaning to audiences with the immortal line “I’ll be back”, spawn a large fan base, and then witness the birth of a big-budget saga with an even bigger sequel in 1991 that outdoes the first movie with Terminator 2 Judgement Day and then continue on with Terminator Rise Of The MacHines in 2003, Terminator Salvation in 2009, and Terminator »

Like peanut butter and jelly, car chases and movies are two things that just go together perfectly. A chase is inherently interesting to watch - someone is trying their best to get away by any means possible, while the other party is trying to stop them from doing so. The danger involved, the threat of violence, and even the thrill of the hunt are all part of why we often can’t look away. A car chase is the next level of chase. They are fast - an embodiment of man and machine together. They are also dangerous - the stakes are incredibly high, and not just for the people involved in the chase.

Ask anyone you know and they could probably pull out an Arnold Schwarzenegger impression for you. The star of The Terminator, Predator, and Conan the Barbarian has one of the most distinct voices in Hollywood, but he’s rarely done voice over work and has never narrated a documentary film before. That changes with Wonders of the […]

Predator seems to be one of those series, like Terminator or Alien, that we will always go back to — either with original directors feeling the urge to continue what they started, or new talents coming along to try their hand.
There is a lot of positivity surrounding Shane Black’s attempt, with his movies known for their sharp wit and dynamic energy.
“Shane has his whole take on it and it’s very different than the original Predator. It’s got a really wicked sense of humour to it, which I love about it. »

Good popcorn is important when seeing a flick, especially your own film.
Producer and recording secretary for the Producers Guild of America, Gale Anne Hurd, made that point clear on Sunday when she shared over Twitter she was so disappointed with the popcorn option at the Metrograph theater in New York, she left a screening of her 1984 classic, The Terminator.
"Left the @MetrographNYC show of my film #TheTerminator & won't be back. $6 sea salt/olive popcorn? No regular popcorn? Not my kinda joint," Hurd shared with her nearly 205,000 followers.
The tweet didn't go unnoticed by the theater.

It’s literally been almost 30 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger did his first comedy. In 1988 Ivan Reitman took a chance and directed an incredibly funny comedy that starred the action star and Danny DeVito as none other than Twins. No one could believe it. How would the star of The Terminator, Conan the Barbarian, Commando, and The Predator even be remotely funny? But Twins was great. Movie goers and critics loved it and Arnold showed us that he was more than just an action star. Schwarzenegger did Kindergarten Cop shortly after that which was also successful. Junior on the other

Arnold Schwarzenegger doesn't want to give up on reviving some of his most iconic movie roles. Even though his last turn as Terminator didn't do what anyone hoped it would and with his Conan sequel now dead in the water, it looks like we are going to finally get that Twins sequel everyone has been begging for. According to him, the movie is a top priority and could begin filming sometime this year.
The actor recently spoke with Entertainment Weekly about his upcoming movie Aftermath, but the conversation turned to his long-gestating sequel to the 1988 comedy Twins, which is going to be titled Triplets. The movie will star Eddie Murphy as the third brother, which is a pretty obvious comedic angle when looking at him next to Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito. It turns out that, as things have shuffled around a bit, the movie has become his top priority »
For fans of all things Arnold Schwarzenegger, this past fortnight has proven to be an assortment of exciting highs and deflating lows. Late last month, the Austrian Oak hinted that his time in The Terminator franchise had come to an end, only to clarify that those comments were taken somewhat out of context. Turns out he will be back after all, which isn’t something that can be said about The Predator.
Indeed, Schwarzenegger has been rumored with a cameo role in Shane Black’s R-rated franchise revival from day one; however, it was revealed earlier this week that the action veteran actually turned down said role on the grounds that it was too insignificant. That’s probably for the best, too, given that Black is engineering a horror-thriller that is decidedly different from the cult classic of ’87.

1988 was a unique year in film history. For every Die Hard and Who Framed Roger Rabbit that debuted, we had odd films like Earth Girls Are Easy, Cocktail, and the comedy Twins, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito who play brothers who were separated at birth. For some reason the movie made over $200 Million Dollars that year (adjusted for inflation.) Keep in mind that Die Hard made only $174 Million Dollars that year (adjusted for inflation.) and you get a sense that all was not right with the world in the latter half of the 1980's.
Yahoo Movies is reporting that there is movement in the long in production sequel to that film which would be called Triplets. Eddie Murphy would star along with Arnold and DeVito playing their other long lost brother. According to Arnold...

Despite the fact that he’s said he’s up to come back for another Batman movie (plus however many Terminator movies anyone feels inclined to make), Arnold Schwarzenegger has made it clear that there’s one franchise expansion he won’t be appearing in: Shane Black’s The Predator. Schwarzenegger—who’s busy promoting his latest, Aftermath—didn’t elaborate his reasons for passing on the role, telling Yahoo, “They asked me, and I read it, and I didn’t like it—whatever they offered. So I’m not going to do that, no. Except if there’s a chance that they rewrite it, or make it a more significant role.”
Scharzenegger starred in the original Predator, way back in 1987. It sounds like whatever part Black and company—who started filming on the franchise’s latest film back in February—offered was more of a cameo, rather than ...

It hasn’t been a good year for Arnold Schwarzenegger and his beloved franchises. Paramount has said “The Terminator” is moving forward without Arnie (though the Governator has denied it), while the actor has taken himself out of “The Expendables” series unless his good buddy Sylvester Stallone, who has recently exited, is involved. Now, yet another project that was set to renew a Schwarzenegger brand has hit a dead end.

When any of us recall our favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger movies, we tend to bring up his more iconic offerings from the 1980’s and early 1990’s. Although Raw Deal will likely continue to be criminally overlooked, the likes of The Terminator, Commando and Total Recall are often among the most fondly remembered. But, if you repeatedly find yourself in a situation that requires you get to the chopper with haste, then Predator is probably the action flick for you.
That being said, we’re all aware that whenever a beloved franchise is revived on the big screen these days it’s not uncommon for the filmmakers to try to lure familiar actors from the originals back, be it in a large role or a mere cameo. As such, Schwarzenegger has been brought up in conversations pertaining to the next Predator movie.
Unfortunately, it looks like Shane Black’s contribution to the »

Now that Arnold Schwarzenegger has been back into full-time acting mode for a few years now, and since his return fans have been clamoring for his return to famous roles, like The Terminator or Conan the Barbarian. His return in Terminator: Genisys didn’t go over too well, but fans still had hope for The Legend Of Conan. But, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Conan won’t... Read More »

The films Arnold Schwarzenegger was making at the peak of his career weren’t exactly known for their dramatic understatement, so if the likes of The Terminator and Predator are still fresh in your mind, then the Austrian Oak’s more recent appearances may seem a little jarring to you. Coming not too long after the downbeat zombie drama Maggie, Aftermath, produced by Darren Aronofsky, sees Schwarzenegger drift further into sadness and introspection - and, we have to say, he acquits himself extremely well.

Aftermath’s loosely based on the true story of a real accident that happened 15 years ago in Germany, when a pair of passenger planes tragically collided in mid-air. Screenwriter Javier Gullon (who wrote Denis Villeneuve’s fabulously strange Enemy) moves the story to Ohio, »
Looking back on this still-young century makes clear that 2007 was a major time for cinematic happenings — and, on the basis of this retrospective, one we’re not quite through with ten years on. One’s mind might quickly flash to a few big titles that will be represented, but it is the plurality of both festival and theatrical premieres that truly surprises: late works from old masters, debuts from filmmakers who’ve since become some of our most-respected artists, and mid-career turning points that didn’t necessarily announce themselves as such at the time. Join us as an assembled team, many of whom were coming of age that year, takes on their favorites.
Grindhouse was intended to be the ultimate homage to the kinda cool, kinda sexy, kinda divine (but not too divine as to make you realize you’re still dealing with trash), kinda exploitation cinema on which Quentin Tarantino »
