Interview: Wayne Bastrup discusses his upcoming role in Terminator Genisys

27 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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 »

How Terminator 2 Spent 75 Cents To Create A Special Effect

20 May 2015 10:47 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

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's Back! New Trailer for 'The Terminator' Theatrical Re-Release

20 May 2015 8:06 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"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. »

7 things I learned from the Wired oral history of Industrial Light & Magic

19 May 2015 10:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Industrial Light & Magic, the San Francisco-based visual effects house that has changed the course of cinema history countless times over the years, is celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2015. Wired Magazine has rounded up a who's who to discuss its impact and how the advances made there — first in a sweaty Van Nuys warehouse, and now in a swank Presidio complex — have morphed the film industry into what it is today. It's well worth your time. If, however, you're the "tl;dr" type, I couldn't help but jot down a few takeaways as I read. Here are seven. But seriously, take some time to read through it if you can. It's a tight but detailed look back, full of the kind of stories — from "Star Wars" to "Transformers" — that make "movie magic" a thing. George Lucas wants Marvel to make another "Howard the Duck" movie I've actually always loved Willard Huyck »

Mad Max: Fury Road – Not Exactly Reinventing the Wheel

16 May 2015 10:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on Mad Max: Fury Road

Hyperbole. It’s the designer drug of choice for the cinema fanboys online, still clinging to the idea that there are only masterpieces and unmitigated disasters. Keep this in mind as we discuss George Miller’s wildly praised new blockbuster.

Mad Max: Fury Road has been this strange piece of pop culture currency. Ever since the world got its first new glimpses of Miller’s latest post-apocalyptic action epic, it became heralded as a champion for classic film-making techniques and storytelling. The movie arrived in cinemas practically pre-ordained as the summer movie messiah. The golden child that would deliver us from the weak-willed studio blockbuster and heal the lame franchises plaguing our cineplexes. This is it, party people, the movie that will restore the status quo to the glory days of the 1980s when The Road Warrior and The Terminator reigned supreme.

Christ almighty. »

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Stone (Thrillingly) Assassinates Truth While Investigating Kennedy Assassination

14 May 2015 6:22 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'JFK' movie with Kevin Costner as Jim Garrison 'JFK' assassination movie: Gripping political drama gives added meaning to 'Rewriting History' If it's an Oliver Stone film, it must be bombastic, sentimental, clunky, and controversial. With the exception of "clunky," JFK is all of the above. It is also riveting, earnest, dishonest, moving, irritating, paranoid, and, more frequently than one might expect, outright brilliant. In sum, Oliver Stone's 1991 political thriller about a determined district attorney's investigation of the assassination of U.S. president John F. Kennedy is a slick piece of propaganda that mostly works both dramatically and cinematically. If only some of the facts hadn't gotten trampled on the way to film illustriousness. With the exception of John Williams' overemphatic score – Oliver Stone films need anything but overemphasis – JFK's technical and artistic details are put in place to extraordinary effect.

'Terminator Genisys' Poster Has Schwarzenegger on a New Mission

14 May 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you didn't know by now, Terminator Genisys takes the entire iconic franchise and flips everything we've come to know on it's head. The story twists the main plot of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and instead of giving John Connor the T-800 as a guardian, the film drops Arnold Schwarzenegger's iconic killer cyborg even further into the past, where it becomes the personal guardian and foster parent to a very young Sarah. The latest poster, meant for International audiences, shows the future Sarah standing beside her Pops in a stance that screams, 'ready for battle!'

In Terminator Genisys, John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, »

10 Reasons Why Charlize Theron in 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Is the Badass Successor to 'Alien''s Ripley

11 May 2015 12:22 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Ever since “Alien” clamped itself upon our cultural psyches — much like the outer-space thriller’s frightening facehugger in 1979 — many of us have been patiently waiting for another actress to stand out in a role that equals, if not tops, Sigourney Weaver’s take-charge she-warrior Ripley: A female who is fierce without having to compromise her gender or be upstaged -- or worse, rescued -- by a male cohort. In other words, a sister who does it for herself while also saving the world. Many have tried, from Brigitte Nielsen (“Red Sonja”) and Halle Berry (“Catwoman,” Storm in the “X-Men” films) to Michelle Yeoh (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”) and Milla Jovovich (the “Resident Evil“ series). A few have come close, including Linda Hamilton in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,” Uma Thurman in both “Kill Bill” volumes, Angelina Jolie in “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” and its sequel, Jennifer Lawrence in “The Hunger Games” franchise, »

7 Bleak Horror Futures

11 May 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Fandango | See recent Fandango news »

We love positive-thinking movies about the future, like Star Trek, Avatar, and Serenity. (The Star Wars series is very optimIstic, but remember that it's set "a long time ago.") More often, however, the future doesn't look terribly bright in science-fiction movies, as these video samples make abundantly clear. .   Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) Surely the most terrifying scenes in the movies are those of a future in which "intelligent" machines...

Terminator Genisys Character Posters Give Old Names to New Faces

10 May 2015 9:42 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Paramount has released a batch of Terminator Genisys character posters, and they provide a few interesting facts. First up, Byung-hun Lee’s character is definitely a T-1000, so presumably he has the same set of abilities as Robert Patrick’s character from T2. Additionally, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character is still a T-800. And finally, Jason Clarke’s Terminator model has now been specified. Paramount decided to spoil the twist and reveal that John Connor is actually terminator, and this poster says that he’s a model “T-3000”. I assume the T-x is nowhere to be found because it wasn't a memorable character in any way. Check out the Terminator Genisys character posters below. The film opens in 3D on July 1st and also stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Matt Smith, Dayo Okeniyi, and Courtney B. Vance. Posters via Imp Awards. Here’s the official synopsis for Terminator: »

'Terminator Genisys' Character Posters Introduce the T-3000

9 May 2015 2:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Spoiler alerts have become mute in regards to Terminator Genisys, as Paramount and Skydance have decided to reveal the movie's biggest secret in all of their posters and trailer. Today, we get a set of 5 character posters, the most interesting of which introduces Jason Clarke as the new T-3000 generation cyborg sent on a mission to kill Sarah Connor. How does Sarah's son become an unstoppable killing machine with a metal endoskeleton? That certain plot point has yet to be released.

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 (Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Car Chases

7 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Part 2 of 10: A good car chase works for completely different reasons than its bipedal counterpart. Where a foot chase is more intimate, desperate, and rough, car chases are cool, exciting, almost romantic. Here the journey overwhelms destination: tough guys (and girls) driving sleek machines at impossible speeds. And unlike foot chases, there are no real limitations on where they can go or what they can do—sometimes cars can even fly.

Maggie (2015) movie review

6 May 2015 11:50 PM, PDT | MoreHorror | See recent MoreHorror news »

By Jonathan Weichsel

MoreHorror.com

Maggie stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin, and Joely Richardson.

Like many guys who grew up in the 1980's, I have been a fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger for as long as I can remember. His films from back then are exciting, gritty, oftentimes dark, and full of some of the greatest action sequences ever filmed. Schwarzenegger made a real impression on screen in the 1980's. Sure he was a power fantasy for young men, but he was also a symbol of everything that was either right or wrong about the 1980's, depending on who you ask; the decade's excesses, its arrogance, and its exaggerated sense of American exceptionalism.

Critics claimed back then that Schwarzenegger wasn't a good actor, but you just have to watch Predator in order to prove them wrong. Acting is living and doing under imaginary circumstances, and Schwarzenegger, compared to the rest of the cast in that movie, »

Get to the chopper! Arnie and James Corden act out loads of Schwarzenegger films

5 May 2015 8:39 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Corden won many fans for his super-fast run through Tom Hanks's filmography, and he has now repeated the trick with Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Arnie joined the Late Late Show host for a quick blast through pretty much all his films from Predator to Jingle All the Way.

Obviously, this meant we got to hear the action hero repeat some of his most iconic one-liners, including "get to the chopper!" and "it's not a tumour".

We were even treated to a recreation of the strip scene from True Lies featuring Jamie Lee Curtis, with Corden getting up close and personal with Schwarzenegger.

Finally, the duo teamed up for Terminator 2: Judgment Day with a burst of "hasta la vista, baby".

Meanwhile, One Direction have been lined up to appear on The Late Late Show, which will be their first Us appearance since Zayn Malik left the group. »

100 Essential Action Scenes: Foot Chases

5 May 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Sound on Sight undertook a massive project, compiling ranked lists of the most influential, unforgettable, and exciting action scenes in all of cinema. There were hundreds of nominees spread across ten different categories and a multi-week voting process from 11 of our writers. The results: 100 essential set pieces, sequences, and scenes from blockbusters to cult classics to arthouse obscurities.

Part 1 of 10: There’s nothing like the thrill of a chase. A bank robber pulls off an elaborate heist only to be pursued by a dogged detective on foot. A soldier escapes from enemy territory but must outrun the angry combatants on his tail. A man wrongly accused of murder has just his wits and his two legs to flee the authorities. It’s the immediacy that appeals: characters relying on their stamina, agility, and wit to stay alive, without the aid that a car, boat, or plane gives them. For filmmakers, »

Peter Hoffman Convicted on Tax Credit Fraud in Louisiana

27 April 2015 5:44 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A federal jury in New Orleans has found producer-attorney Peter Hoffman and producer-actor Michael Arata guilty of defrauding a state tax credit program of $1.1 million.

Hoffman, his wife, Susan, and Arata were found guilty Monday of conspiracy to wire fraud in connection with the rehabilitation of a 155-year-old mansion that they converted into a film post-production studio that was used for HBO’s “True Detective” series. Peter Hoffman was also convicted on 21 counts of mail and wire fraud related to the deal.

Arata, the husband of New Orleans Deputy Mayor Emily Arata, was convicted on seven counts of wire fraud and four counts of making false statements to FBI agents. Susan Hoffman was acquitted on all counts except for the single count of mail fraud.

In an indictment made public in February 2014, federal prosecutors claimed Peter Hoffman and Michael Arata submitted “materially false and misleading documents” in expenditures on the »

I’ll Be Back: The Diminishing Returns Of The Terminator Franchise

23 April 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The year is 1984, and a muscular cyborg from the future pursues an innocent Sarah Connor across the comparative hellscape of 1980s Los Angeles. Accompanied by time-traveler Kyle Reese, Connor must survive the onslaught of the T-800, a vicious and apparently unkillable robot sent to murder her before she becomes the mother of the future savior John Connor, who will lead the future battle against Skynet.

The Terminator is a film right out of the 1980s, featuring clothing, music, and images that will remain imprinted on the audience’s mind and in culture for years to come. As a quintessential film of the 80s, it is hopelessly dated. Its aesthetic was camp almost before it hit the theatres, and its one-liners (“I’ll be back,” “Come with me if you want to live”) both iconic and, in the end, pretty damn silly. Yet The Terminator lives on because it gave exactly »

23 specially-shot movie teaser trailers

21 April 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Psycho to Jurassic Park, here are 23 teaser trailers that don't show a frame of footage from the movies they're advertising...

These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.

But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »
