The line that Arnold Schwarzenegger that is known for more than others with regard to his 80s action movie dominance is “I’ll be back.” However, many would argue that “Hasta La Vista” is his number one. I’m personally a huge fan of “Get to the choppa!” Put it this way, there are about 25 quotes that you simply cannot go wrong with when thinking of vintage Arnold Schwarzenegger. However, it’s just been released that for whatever reason in the Spanish version of Terminator 2: Judgement Day, that instead of the line “Hasta la Vista, baby” something else is used. It’s

As we look back at what came before ‘Iron Man,’ we marvel at the miracle that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Earlier this week, the Fsr team brainstormed the plot of Avengers 4 based on the idea that its mysterious subtitle was a potential spoiler for the still unseen Avengers: Infinity War. It was a fun exercise that briefly allowed me to nerd out over a few spandex epics penned by personal favorites, Brian Michael Bendis and Jonathan Hickman. The resulting conversation spawned some excitement, and a good heap of cynicism as well…or better yet, apathy. How much further can the Marvel Cinematic Universe expand? Will Thanos ever sit up from his chair, and prove he’s the big bad Mad Titan comic book fanboys claim him to be? Next week, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will mark the 15th entry in Marvel’s unprecedented shared universe machine, and by the time we get to Avengers »

In 1997, a film cynic was born.
Seeing Star Wars ruined should have been a sign that 1997 would be the worst year ever for blockbusters. George Lucas’s Special Editions, intended to “improve” the original trilogy but mostly doing the opposite, started arriving in January. By the time of the release of the new version of Return of the Jedi in March, my anticipation for anything ought to have been demolished. But I couldn’t have imagined that was only the beginning.
Actually, the first steps towards the end of an era were made in the early ’90s. That just wasn’t a great time for big movies compared to the prior decade. Some of my biggest letdowns of all time included Hudson Hawk in 1991 and Death Becomes Her in 1992. Jurassic Park wasn’t good enough for me, having read the book. Independence Day put me to sleep in the theater. Beloved »

What I’ve tried to find here is a mix of reasonably known and less known instances of an actor being cut out of a film after they’ve filmed sequences for it. I’ve also tried to get to the reason they were left out as well.
Whilst all this may still sound like an exercise in clickbait, being cut out »
I’m sure all of you remember the movie Terminator. And I’m sure you all remember the snotty, cocky sounding psychologist Dr. Peter Silberman. Silberman also appears Terminator 2 and 3. But the real question is “who plays Dr. Silberman?” That answer is none other than Earl Boen. I can all but guarantee you never knew that name until the moment you just read that sentence. So who is Earl Boen? Veteran character actor Earl Boen was born on November 7, 1945 in New York City. He is probably best known for his role as criminal psychologist Dr. Peter Silberman in

Half a century ago we were all going to be living in mile-high skyscrapers with floating cars for transport. As the new millennium came closer, you had more chance of meeting an alien who declared, “Nanu, nanu, shazbot” as a greeting.The major inventions of science fiction have yet to happen. Warp drive, teleporting, hover cars; they all remain the prerogative of fertile minds. Or do they?
Despite what we may think, much more of science fiction’s wizardry has come true than we credit. In-ear headphones were predicted by Ray Bradbury in his seminal novel, Fahrenheit 451. Apple, for one, are finding this to be a tidy revenue stream.
It’s not the only thing Bradbury looked into the future and saw. Mankind has long held a fascination with Mars and while Hg Wells War of the Worlds seems an unlikely outcome, colonisation as foreseen in the Martian Chronicles »

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. »

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 […]

Saluting the movie characters who make an impression, the minute they appear on the screen...
One thing that unites all of cinema’s most iconic characters is that they were able to make a memorable first impression. Whether it’s bursting onto the scene in a flurry of noise or slowly skulking their way into shot, there’s a fine art to ensuring a character makes an instant impact on screen. An iconic entrance is not just about a momentary impact however, it can also emphasise a character’s importance and help to cement their influence over the rest of the movie.
There are any number of contributory factors that can be blended together in order to make an entrance truly memorable. These include the accompanying music, the choice of camera shot, 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.
