The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)
And so the essential twist that led to »

It's no secret that Paul W.S. Anderson worships the works of James Cameron. Anderson has enthused about Aliens in countless interviews. The director has cited influences Cameron has had on him. He has to be happy to know that one of James Cameron's guilty pleasures is none other than...Resident Evil.

Director James Cameron is a busy fellow these days, as he continues preproduction work on Avatar 2, 3 and 4. That didn’t stop the filmmaker from popping onto Reddit this weekend to participate in one of the site’s famous AMAs (Ask Me Anything). Cameron was surprisingly candid during the exchange with fans, and the highlights of the chat involve the Aliens director’s thoughts on filmmaking in general, as well as views on upcoming movies. We’ve gone through the lengthy chat and grabbed the most interesting responses. One of the most interesting questions – which inspired a very short and direct answer – involved Cameron’s plans to make a sequel to True Lies. As it turns out, we’re not going to see that film anytime soon, if ever...

You probably remember that at one point in the early aughts, Ridley Scott wanted to return to the 'Alien' franchise. This is years before “Prometheus” took shape and this version would have essentially been a more traditional “Aliens 5” with Sigourney Weaver as Ripley, and the alien battle taking place on Earth. But the “Aliens Vs. Predator” series not only stole the idea, but in the eyes of Scott, it sullied the franchise and he didn’t want anything to do with it. Though, they did consider it regardless for a while. "We’d have to go back to the drawing board on [the fifth alien film]," Weaver told MTV in 2008. "Ridley said that right away when we first talked about [a fifth film]." But in the end he wiped his hands clean of it all for years until he found the right way to reboot the series with the prequel-like “Prometheus.” But did you know »

This past weekend, director James Cameron did a Reddit Ama and covered the gamut in terms of Q&A, ranging from the current state of the Avatar sequels, his thoughts on the latest Terminator films (and reboot), the Alien films (post Aliens), what happened to True Lies 2, the best movie he's seen in theaters recently, his thoughts on 3D being used for all movies, and he would win in a fight between a T-800, and Alien Queen, and a Na'vi. It was kind of an exhausting »

Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted an official TV spot packed with new footage from Edge of Tomorrow, the upcoming sci-fi from diretcor Doug Liman (The Bourne Identity), which stars Tom Cruise as an officer forced to relive his first and final battle over and over again until he’s able to change the outcome. Take a look below…
The story unfolds in a near future in which a hive-like alien race, called Mimics, have hit the Earth in an unrelenting assault, shredding great cities to rubble and leaving millions of human casualties in their wake. No army in the world can match the speed, brutality or seeming prescience of the weaponized Mimic fighters or their telepathic commanders. But now the world’s armies have joined forces for a last stand offensive against the alien horde, with no second chances.
Lt. Col. Bill Cage (Cruise) is an officer who has never »

James Cameron’s documentary series Years Of Living Dangerously arrives on Us television screens this week, and over the weekend he joined a Reddit Ama session to answer some burning questions from fans. Of course, when it comes to Cameron nobody can resist bringing up cinematic stunner Avatar, which blew away critics and audiences in 2009. With three sequels in the works there’s obviously a lot going into bringing them into production, with Cameron spilling some secrets:
“The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They’re essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks…The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love to get the film down to a length that is affordable. There »

Director James Cameron just finished his extensive Ama on Reddit, where he went over his entire career and discussed all of his movies, both future and past. In an unusually candid conversation, the man behind two of the world's biggest movie releases, Titanic and Avatar, was definitely asked anything and everything.
To read his comments about the future of the Avatar franchise: clickHere.
Read on for his comments about True Lies 2, Battle Angel, the future of the The Terminator franchise and the Alien franchise, where he discusses his thoughts, feelings and general attitude towards cinema at this point in time.
For years, we've heard that True Lies 2 is happening. These rumors have mostly been kept alive by Arnold Schwarzenegger's co-star Tom Arnold. According to James Cameron, we'll probably never see a sequel.
We abandoned True Lies 2 after 9/11, because we didn't think a comedy about fundamentalist terrorists was so funny anymore. »
James Cameron participated in a Reddit Ama this morning to help promote his upcoming Showtime docu-series "Years of Living Dangerously". Naturally talk turned toward a bunch of other projects, mot notably how his planned trilogy of "Avatar" sequels is currently progressing.
Cameron says that the scripts for the three planned films will be completed around Memorial Day:
"The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They're essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks."
In terms of filling out the trilogy, Cameron says his issue has been having to cut back on stuff to include:
"The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love to get the film down to a length that is affordable. There »

As popular as his movies are, James Cameron himself is slightly mysterious. Sure, he’ll get out to promote his work, or use his celebrity status to speak about important issues. Those occasions just don’t provide a great chance to meet the man himself. Which is why when James Cameron took to Reddit to do an […]

Some remarkable child performers have very brief moments in the spotlight -- Carrie Henn in Aliens is a great example. Others fizzle around the time they reach adulthood, often through unfortunate circumstances like drug addiction. Then there are people like Ron Howard, Jodie Foster, Christian Bale, Leonardo DiCaprio, Neil Patrick Harris, Sidney Lumet, Jackie Cooper, Elizabeth Taylor ... The list can go on and on and on (especially if we're counting those who switched roles in Hollywood like Howard and Lumet). We should also include the ones who had missteps during the transition to adulthood but made comebacks, like Drew Barrymore and Jason Bateman. But nobody today, certainly not the younger generation of talents like Natalie Portman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, can be...

I don’t find myself crying in agony over having to miss conventions much, but judging from the lineup to this year’s Texas Frightmare,…yeah, I’m bummed. Boasting everything from a Terminator/Terminator 2 reunion, A Night Of The Demons reunion, the West Memphis 3‘s Jason Baldwin, a full blown Blair Witch Project reunion and Dr. f’n Giggles himself, Larry Drake! (I’m an unabashed Dr Giggles fanatic). Making the con even more appealing, is the fact that one of most unique bands around these days, Ghost, is doing a special performance at the con. Seriously, if you’re in the Texas area…get the hell over there from May 2-4, and send me some pics, Please! For more info/tickets, read the press release below!

Has any hit ever been more sure-fire than Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2? The eighth Harry Potter film opened just under a decade after the first one — a decade that saw Potter fandom sweep across the globe. The franchise’s rapid release schedule — with a new film hitting theaters every 18 months on average — meant that a whole generation of moviegoers literally grew up with Harry Potter, watching the stars age from humble prepubescent beginnings into grown-up megastars. The fact that J.K. Rowling released the three final books during the same period occasionally made it feel like all »

It's likely that when a rosy-cheeked Kate Winslet booked Titanic back in the late 1990s, she suspected it would be a major moment in her career. After all, she was to be the lead in a big-budget historical drama written and directed by James Cameron, the helmer of such hits as Terminator, Aliens, and True Lies. However, it's unlikely she suspected one scene in particular to haunt her for years and years to come. In and interview with Yahoo UK, Winslet was asked to confront a less than glamorous element of Titanic's legacy: her nude scene's continued popularity. This was prompted by a fan at the UK premiere of Divergent, who eagerly presented her with a recreation of Jack's drawing of Rose. Apparently this is far from the first time this has happened. She explained: "I don't sign that one (picture). It feels very uncomfortable. Why would you do that? »
With a jam-packed lineup of stars, this year's Texas Frightmare Weekend was already looking to be a must-attend event, and the convention has just gotten a big time upgrade in the form of a partnership with IFC Midnight.
Read on for all the details, which are sure to have you planning a trip to rattlesnake country!

On 16th May 2014, Toho’s greatest monster will return to the big screen in an American reboot. With just 7 weeks to go, we here at Thn are counting down the Godzilla back catalogue.
Director: Roland Emmerich
Plot: A large lizard, mutated by radioactivity, arrives in New York.
It was only a matter of time. Hollywood itself had never been too fond of the ‘man in suit’ approach to cinematic monsters, but once technology caught up with the genre it was time to unleash Godzilla in the Us. On paper it made sense. A massive dinosaur-like creature destroys New York. With the success of Jurassic Park, surely bigger would easily be better. This was demonstrated in one of the film’s many great teasers as Godzilla »
