New Terminator Genisys TV Spot Lands

27 March 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As Arnold Schwarzenegger explains in the new issue of Empire, Terminator Genisys is untethered from the fiddly business of having to dot all the 'i's and cross the 't's of previous films in the franchise. But swerving that timeline tangle doesn't mean that the sci-fi actioner won't be paying homage to Terminator lore. This new TV spot distills a fair few of them into 30 seconds of cybernetic showcasing. There's a first proper look at J.K. Simmons as Detective O'Brien, a corner of officialdom a lot more willing to take all the doomsday prophesying at face value than, say, Dr. Silberman in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Never mind rushing and dragging, here's J.K. scarpering. For those not already in the know, Genisys starts in 2029, with the war between the human rebels and Skynet’s malicious machines is in full swing. Present and correct – though played now by different actors – are »

Arnold Schwarzenegger on Terminator Genisys: “We Have to Outdo T2″ [Set Interview]

25 March 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

In July of last year, I visited the set of Terminator: Genisys. You can hear what I learned while on set here. While on set, we talked to the cast and crew of the new film. Over the next few days we’ll be running transcripts of these on set interviews. Today we begin with Arnold Schwarzenegger, […]

Arnold Schwarzenegger, straight from the 'Terminator: Genisys' set

25 March 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New Orleans – Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Terminator.  The character is iconic and at least two of the movies stand pretty high in the pantheon of science fiction films.  Notably, when the AFI put together its list of the top 50 heroes and top 50 villains of all time, Schwarzenegger's character appeared on both.    Here is the thing – even today, fully 30 years after Arnold Schwarzenegger materialized, he is still the Terminator and getting the opportunity to watch him play the part on set in a new film is something special.  The faces around him have changed, we saw him walking next to Emilia Clarke's Sarah Connor and Jai Courtney's Kyle Reese, but there's something about him, especially in the appropriate garb, that says, "Terminator." So, here we are on a hot July day in New Orleans, watching this iconic actor reprise his most iconic role.  And, whatever the movie may turn »

How 'Terminator: Genisys' plans to time-travel: From the Nasa set

25 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New Orleans – It seems right that a facility once used to make components of the Saturn V rocket for Nasa now houses a film set being used to catapult the imagination far into the future.    Jules Verne wrote "From the Earth to the Moon," as science fiction, but the Saturn V helped make traveling to the moon a reality.  The tables are now turned as a wholly different, and quite fictional, sort of traveling is being contemplated inside, and it is more of the H.G. Wells variety than the sort Verne envisioned. On a huge sound stage inside that Nasa facility is machine constructed for traveling, not in time but in space.  Referred to by those working on the production as a "Tdd," the machine on set is a Time Displacement Device, and it looks as though the entire thing can spin around creating something of a sphere around those in the device. »

New Stills For Terminator: Genisys Land; Has Matt Smith’s Character Been Revealed?

24 March 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between all of the trailers, stills and clips released as part of Paramount’s marketing hoopla for Terminator: Genisys, one question still remains: Who exactly is Matt Smith playing? When the former Doctor Who joined the cast last year, his announcement included one brief description that told us he would step into the shoes of “a new character with a strong connection to John Connor.”

For the rebooted prequel, Connor is played by Jason Clarke, his mother Sarah by Emilia Clarke, Kyle Reese by Jai Courtney and the iconic T-800 by Arnold Schwarzenegger. So far the main players have all been identified with the exception of Smith, whose role has been kept under wraps. Until very recently that is, as an audience member who attended an advance screening of the movie in Arizona dropped a major scoop to the folks at Latino Review.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Plays a “Combination” of His Previous Characters in Terminator: Genisys

24 March 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We got a new look at Arnold Schwarzenegger as a grey-haired Terminator yesterday in new Terminator: Genisys images, and a few more photos from director Alan Taylor’s upcoming sequelboot have arrived, along with a bit more info on the circumstances of Schwarzenegger’s return. We know that Genisys treads some of the same territory as The Terminator and T2, as Jai Courtney’s Kyle Reese is sent back in time by the adult John Connor (Jason Clarke) in order to prevent his mother (Emilia Clarke) from being murdered. But when he arrives in 1983, things are very, very different, as Sarah Connor is already a hardened woman, palling around with a Terminator sidekick played by Schwarzenegger. [caption id="attachment_430833" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Empire[/caption] Speaking with Empire, The Governator spoke a bit about the nature of his reprisal: “The story has changed, so I am like a combination of the characters who you have seen in the past. »

Mario Kassar interview: Carolco, Bot, Hollywood

23 March 2015 4:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chat to legendary producer Mario Kassar about the return of Carolco, its forthcoming sci-fi film Bot, Hollywood studios, and more...

First Blood. Total Recall. Terminator 2. For a generation versed in the major action films of the 80s and 90s, the Carolco brand holds a special place in the memory. Its distinctive logo became a byword for bold, often brash movies starring some of the biggest names of the day - not least Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Founded by producers Andrew Vajna and Mario Kassar in the 1970s, Carolco went from indie outsider to a company with the size and clout of a Hollywood major; the studio became famous - and infamous in some quarters - for its headline-grabbing deals. (Legend has it that, when Arnie signed up to make Terminator 2: Judgment Day, he was given a $17m private jet.)

At the height of its powers, Carolco was making smaller-scale, »

Terminator Genisys graces Empire cover, new images arrive online

21 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the marketing campaign begins to gather pace, the cover of the May issue of Empire (via Reddit) has given us another look at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 in this summer’s Terminator Genisys

Schwarzenegger, with most of his skin “lost” to show his machine endo-skeleton below, is joined on the new issue’s cover by the Emilia Clarke’s (Game of Thrones) Sarah Connor, who looks more like Connor in T2 than the shy girl of the first film. In addition, some new photos from the film have been unveiled, which includes the first image of Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), who joins the cast as Detective O’Brien, a cop who has apparently been investigating Sarah Connor since she was young…

'Terminator Genisys' Has a Different Take on Kyle Reese

19 March 2015 7:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Terminator Genisys is shaping up to be one of this summer's biggest blockbusters, with Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the Terminator franchise as his iconic T-800 cyborg, although much has changed in this version. Much like the original Terminator, military leader John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to the year 1984 to protect his mother Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), although nothing is quite what he expects. Sarah has actually been raised by an "aging" T-800 cyborg known as The Guardian for several years, as Kyle finds himself with a new mission, to reset the future. Jai Courtney has recently been doing press for The Divergent Series: Insurgent, in theaters tomorrow, and during an interview with Hero Complex, the actor revealed he didn't pay any attention to Michael Biehn's original portrayal of Kyle Reese in The Terminator, because this character has changed quite a bit.

"To be honest ... I don't pay any attention, »

Jai Courtney: 'Terminator: Genisys' Will Have 'Gentle Nods' to James Cameron's Films

19 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jai Courtney is the new Kyle Reese, opposite Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger (he always said he'd be back!) as The Terminator in "Terminator: Genisys." The movie opens July 1, and Jai just talked to Variety about how he booked the role and how different "Genisys" is from the "Terminator" story of the 1984 original.

"It's not a reboot or a sequel or a prequel," Jai told Variety. "It stands alone. We're introduced to a world that we've seen before. However, when Reese is sent back to save Sarah Connor, something has happened in the process sand everything has changed. All the information he has for the mission and the task at hand is different. Therefore, things have been reset and that's where we move forward from. That's about all I can say."

It's like the alternate 1985 of "Back to the Future II" (but hopefully without rich Biff). Jai »

Friday The 13th TV Series Is Going For The Meta Angle

16 March 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The days of a movie franchise merely spawning an endless stream of big screen sequels, prequels, side-quels, and other quirky spinoff varietals is long gone. In the case of Friday The 13th, the kitschy ’80s slasher, it’s not only slated for another theatrical feature but a small screen version is also in the pipeline.

Announced last April, the TV series is under the care of franchise creator Sean Cunningham. Cunningham’s ambitious goals for the show are to re-imagine the series’ flagship villain Jason Voorhees across many time periods. Lucky for him, one of two writers attached – Bill Basso – worked on the Terminator series, albeit as a special effects guru on T2. So, how might that temporal narrative device be explored on the show? Simple. It’s going meta.

Cunningham recently put it an appearance at the Monster Mania convention in New Jersey, at which he offered an update on the show. »

It’s still to be seen if Chappie will go down as a classic in the robot sci-fi genre, but if it whetted your appetite for artificial intelligence movies and android action scenes, here are nine of the best robotic heroes and nine of the craziest robotic villains in cinematic history.

Games nobody talks about anymore: Operation Wolf

27 February 2015 7:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Released in 1987, Operation Wolf not only ushered in an era of gun games, but tapped into the decade's macho action movies, Ryan writes...

Some of the biggest arcade machines of the 80s - both in terms of popularity and physical bulk - were about bringing cinematic fantasies to life. Did you have childhood dreams of taking the controls of an X-Wing like Luke Skywalker? Atari's Star Wars let you do just that. Did you want to be Tom Cruise in Top Gun? Then Sega's nausea-inducing After Burner had you covered.

But what if you wanted to be a tough military, gun-toting hero, like Sly in Rambo: First Blood Part II, Arnold in Commando, or to a lesser extent, Chuck in Missing In Action? Lots of 80s games had military themes, like Capcom's Commando (which had nothing to do with the film), Snk's Ikari Warriors or Konami's Green Beret.

Script reviews of Terminator: Genisys are extremely positive, “it’s three action packed movies in one” (non-spoiler)

19 February 2015 5:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s fair to say that the reactions to Terminator: Genisys have not been overwhelmingly positive. The initial badly photoshopped images were the first indication, and then subsequent trailer did the movie no favours. But, if these two non-spoiler script reviews from Arnoldfans.com are to be believed, the film might be better than we think.

“I think the best way to describe Terminator Genisys is three action packed movies in one,” writes ‘Greg’. “First of all, we finally get to see the Future Wars. Where John Connor, Kyle Reese and resistance take on Skynet. This is something that Terminator fans have wanted to see since James Cameron gave them a preview of it in the first film. So I don’t think fans will be disappointed with this portion of the movie at all! In the script the future war is 18 pages. So I would say around 20 minutes give or take. »

100 Greatest Nintendo Games, Pt. 7

Well here we are, the very end. It has been a pleasure to work alongside my Sos colleagues and produce this massive list of 100 titles (110, if you count special mentions), each of which reminds us why we love Nintendo so much. As I mentioned prior, we started out with about 450 games, and slowly we cut away. While no person will be 100 % satisfied with each and every pick, much less the order, I’m pretty happy with the overall results, and hopefully most of you are too.

How ‘Super Metroid’ channeled ‘Aliens’ and became the first feminist video game

11 February 2015 7:46 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Samus Tribute by_Wen Jr.

In his not-quite seminal but still very good 1998 essay “F/X Porn,” David Foster Wallace dissects the lasting legacy of James Cameron’s mega-blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgment Day. (Well, more accurately, he examines the enduring stain left by Cameron’s film on the modern action movie, but whatever.) The essay doesn’t offer much in the way of profundity regarding CGI-addled blockbusters or Arnold Scwarzenegger, though it does have that singular Wallace wit; the appeal of the breezy essay lies within Wallace’s digressive musings on Aliens, Cameron’s previous film, to which the writer dedicates just as many words as he does to the purported subject of the essay.

For the uninitiated, Aliens is Cameron’s lean, mean sequel to Ridley Scott’s body-horror classic Alien. An ostensible testosterone-fueled flick, replete with guns and gear and gruff military types spitting out phrases like, “Stop »

The Terminator: 10 Biggest Plot Holes

11 February 2015 1:59 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

There’s something unstoppable about the Terminator series. Like creator James Cameron’s bank account this is a franchise that keeps on growing and growing; a relentless cinematic behemoth that refuses to die.

Like most franchises it has certainly gone downhill as it has progressed. The original The Terminator directed by James Cameron remains to this day a classic of American science fiction cinema; its gritty, ultra violent action a reminder of just how great low budget cinema can be (not to mention how much the PG-13 rating has all but ruined action movies). With its big budget, Cameron’s sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, set the bar for blockbusters to come, but sadly the quality of the series has been in steady decline ever since.

With its complex time travel premise it was perhaps inevitable that narrative coherence would end up taking a back seat to the action, »
