See Robert Patrick become Terminator 2's T-1000 again on Conan

15 December 2014 4:24 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Patrick has once again proven why Terminator 2: Judgment Day's T-1000 is one of the most frightening movie characters of all-time.

The actor reflected on his audition for the 1991 James Cameron movie on Conan, and regaled the audience with the tale of how his intense expression first frightened the director.

It seemed only natural for Conan O'Brien to ask Patrick to re-create the fateful expression that won him the role of the T-1000.

"It's been 25 years," Patrick initially complained, before adding: "That's a lot to ask for! Well, I guess I can do it for you."

After directing the cameraman to film his face "nice and tight", Patrick let loose with his most intimidating T-1000 glare.

"You've still got it," fellow guest Rebecca Romijn declared.

Patrick is currently starring in the crime drama Scorpion, airing on CBS in »

The Rise and Spectacular Fall of the Terminator Franchise

9 December 2014 4:13 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at the Terminator franchise…

30 years ago, the brilliant mind and visionary genius of James Cameron gave birth to a cinema icon – Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, the T-800, The Terminator. It was a movie that blended science fiction, action and horror and helped launched the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Terminator was tense, it was thrilling and, above all, it was perfectly executed.

Set in 1984, The Terminator sees bright-eyed and bushy-haired Sarah Conner being targeted for termination by a machine entity called Skynet, a system from the future who have managed to wipe out human existence thanks to its army of Terminator cyborgs. However, there is a human resistance that is rising up – and it looks like they are about to win thanks in part to the leadership of Sarah’s son John. Skynet’s plan is simple: send a Terminator back to a time before John Conner »

‘Terminator Genisys’ Reasons To Be Wary

5 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Last night the first full-length trailer for Terminator Genisys arrived. Now you would think that given The Terminator is one of my all-time favourite movies that I would have been excited for the promo video to land. Sadly after having been burnt by Terminator 3 I know better than to put my faith into the newer incarnations of the franchise. Since the reboot announcement I have been outwardly against the project and was particularly vocal about to decision to cast a very muscular Jai Courtney as the latest version of Kyle Reese. Then came the decision to change the name from Terminator Genesis to Terminator Genisys, a choice clearly made by a text-speak lover.  Internally however I have been slightly hopeful that they won’t further tarnish the reputation of James Cameron’s baby. After seeing the trailer though it seems that I and many other devoted fans are in for some bitter disappointment. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger from the set of 'Terminator: Genisys': It's all about the trailer

4 December 2014 12:26 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New Orleans – The Nasa facility outside the city proper is huge, but then again, so are the movie characters walking around the place on this hot July day.  One of them isn't just huge in the legendary sense, but very much in the physical as well, and he speaks with quite a distinctive accent. A movie star for decades, Arnold Schwarzenegger is here reprising his most iconic role, the Terminator, and he's doing it in the first film in a planned trilogy.  Into this set of films, he is bringing a new Sarah Connor, Emilia Clarke; a new John Connor, Jason Clarke; and a new Kyle Reese, Jai Courtney.  Even if the actors are new to the parts, "Terminator: Genisys" isn't being described as a reboot of the franchise, but more as a new way of looking at it.  "Genisys" is explained more as a reimagining, a new tale splintered »

Skynet Fights Back In First Trailer For Terminator: Genisys

4 December 2014 10:54 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Earlier this week, a sinister live-motion poster depicting a disintegrating endoskeleton permeated the Internet. The next day, a brief 15-second tease hinted at a future Earth decimated by an evil sentient robot race. Now, after months of anticipation, Paramount and Skydance have finally unleashed the first poster and full-length trailer for Terminator: Genisys.

The first instalment in a whole new trilogy, Genisys is being heralded as a “reset” for the man-versus-machine franchise. Unlike the sequels which followed James Cameron’s original series – The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment DayAlan Taylor’s reboot will offer fans a fresh look at an alternate timeline.

30 Great Sci-Fi Movies on Netflix Streaming Right Now

4 December 2014 9:00 AM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"What if?" is the burning question our favorite sci-fi movies ask: What if Earth was invaded by aliens or giant spiders? What makes us human once we start bending the laws of genetics and robotics? And if we worked out really really hard, would we ever have Linda Hamilton's arms in "Terminator 2"?

Here are some of the best of the sci-fi genre now streaming on Netflix, including Chris Evans in "Snowpiercer," Bruce Willis in "The Fifth Element" and plenty of Godzilla and the crew of the USS Enterprise.

1. "Antiviral" (2012) Nr

David Cronenberg's son, Brandon, makes his film debut with this gore-filled horror flick about a company who deals in viruses collected from celebrities since people want to be infected with the same diseases as the ultra-famous.

2. "Barbarella" (1968) PG

The cult film, starring Jane Fonda as the sexy space babe of the title, may be overlong, but it's an eye-popping must-see '60s flashback. »

Terminator: Genisys Trailer Preview Hints Total Annihilation

3 December 2014 10:26 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

While the official trailer for Terminator: Genisys hits tomorrow, we thought we'd share this sneak peek at the film which offers the first official footage from the 2015 film. You'll see some familiar Terminator tropes including what looks to be a T-1000, arching electricity and that unforgettable robot arm.

We also get a brief shot of the entire globe getting pounded by nuclear bombs. I can only assume that's a glimpse at this film's version of Judgment Day.

Synopsis:

Sarah Connor isn't the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she's been raised by (brace yo [Continued ...] »

Terminator: Genisys Living Poster Lands

3 December 2014 9:13 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Update: Tomorrow the official Terminator: Genisys trailer breaks (ie not a Lego version) and to get the internet primed and ready, Paramount has unleashed this teaser. It offers a glimpse at Judgment Day, a first look at Arnie's T-800 and a nice line in the mimetic poly-alloy menace of Terminator 2: Judgment Day's T-1000. Click below to watch it. After the first imagery from the film broke, we wondered when the official Terminator: Genisys promotional campaign would begin to gear up. Turns out that’s today, as the “living” poster for the film, featuring a grinning T-800 face slowly turning into the sand of an hour glass, has arrived. Yes, while it might look like our robotic subject is suffering a serious case of metal fatigue, it’s a wink to the film’s time-hopping and reality-jumping nature. Genisys reportedly starts in 2029, with the war between the human rebels »

'Terminator Genisys' Trailer Preview Reveals First Movie Footage

3 December 2014 8:57 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures is getting fans ready for the Terminator Genisys trailer debuting Thursday, December 4, by releasing a brief preview with the first footage. We don't see a whole lot in this 15-second teaser, but it appears that one of the characters shares the same "liquid-metal" characteristics as Robert Patrick's T-1000 from 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day. We also see what could be the massive device that sends people (and Terminators) back in time, along with missiles being launched all over the world.

Last but not least, we finally get a glimpse at Arnold Schwarzenegger's aging T-800 character, as we see him examining his bare metal arm. We reported back in October that the T-800 has actually raised Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) since she was nine years old, after another Terminator sent by Skynet wiped out her entire family. While we don't see her in the trailer preview, Sarah »

Terminator: Genisys Motion Poster Hints Re-Imagined Score

2 December 2014 2:35 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Like everything we've seen or read about Terminator: Genisys, this motion poster is fairly uninteresting. The only thing you may find interesting about the crumbling exoskeleton is the score behind it which sounds like a rock n' roll re-imagining of Brad Fiedel's original, more industrial score.

Do we need more guitar riffs in our Terminator movies? I say, no.

Synopsis:

Sarah Connor isn't the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she's been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger's Terminator—an older T-800 she calls "Pops"—who is programmed to gua [Continued ...] »

1990s Computer Hacking Movie Supercut - "A Whole New World"

21 November 2014 9:58 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Here's a fun movie supercut video from FoundItemClothing that shows us all of the wonderful computer hacking from the films of the 1990s. He calls it "A Whole New World," and it features very dated hacking scenes from films like Terminator 2: Judgment DayJohnny MnemonicOffice Space, The Matrix, and more. I sure did love '90s technology, but I don't miss it. 

Movies sprinted to make the most of the potential wonders and horrors of cyberspace. For your entertainment and viewing pleasure, this supercut brings you the best of 90s computing in all its grandiose and cringeworthy glory.

Lucasfilm Announces Animation Strange Magic For This January

11 November 2014 3:10 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, that was unexpected. Today, Lucasfilm announced that it will be bringing us an animated film titled Strange Magic in just three short months. Touchstone Pictures will be releasing the project, inspired by William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” into theaters on January 23rd, 2015.

Alan Cumming, Evan Rachel Wood, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Alfred Molina, Peter Stormare and Elijah Kelley all lend their voices to the film, playing magical creatures such as goblins, elves, fairies and imps who come to blows over a magic potion. Musical interludes help to tell the story, with Strange Magic incorporating “popular songs from the past six decades.”

Gary Rydstrom, a seven-time Oscar winner for his work as a sound designer on films as diverse as Saving Private Ryan, Titanic and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, will direct from an original idea by George Lucas. Rydstrom’s experience isn’t limited to sound work – he also helmed Oscar-nominated, »

The Nostalgia Files: ‘The Hard Way’ (1991)

6 November 2014 5:49 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Hard Way

Written by Daniel Pyne and Lem Dobbs

Directed by John Badham

USA, 1991

Thanks to the popularity of Lethan Weapon, the action comedy genre thrived in the 1980s and 1990s. The genre combines fast paced thrills and violence with witty one-liners and often ridiculous comedic scenarios. For some reason, the 80s were a veritable breeding ground for many of these types of films and the trend continued well into the 90s. For instance, 1991 saw the release of a movie that pretty much turned the genre on its head. That film is the buddy cop adventure The Hard Way and it is not only a smart action thrill ride with buckets of fresh humor but also a smart commentary on real life police work and method acting.

Directed by John Badham (WarGames, Saturday Night Fever, Short Circuit), The Hard Way pretty much has it all. It focuses on two »
