Pierce Brosnan's The November Man opens this weekend (you can read our review here), and while a sequel has already been announced, there's also another thriller in the works starring the actor. Deadline is reporting John Moore (A Good Day To Die Hard, Max Payne) has been hired by Voltage Films for I.T. Terminator 2: Judgment Day scribe William Wisher Jr. will rewrite Dan Kay's (Timber Falls, Pay The Ghost) original draft of the script for I.T., and »

Audiences will see Pierce Brosnan get back into action mode this weekend with The November Man (and there's already a sequel on the way), but that's not the only action he'll be seeing on the big screen. The former James Bond is set to star in I.T., another thriller set up at Voltage Films with A Good Day to Die Hard helmer John Moore attached to direct. But it sounds like there won't quite be as much action as either of their recent projects since the story follows Brosnan as a publisher whose relationship with a young I.T. consultant sours, causing the young man to use technology to threaten his family, business and life. Deadline reports the script originally comes from Dan Kay, based on an idea from David T. Friendly and his Friendly Films banner. But now Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Live Free or Die Hard writer William Wisher Jr. »

We first reported on this project back in October 2013, when Pierce Brosnan signed on to play a successful book publisher whose friendship with a young I.T. consultant goes awry. The publisher soon finds his life being turned upside down, as his former friend begins threatening everything and everyone close to him.
William Wisher Jr. (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, The Abyss, Live Free or Die Hard) has signed on to rewrite the original script by Daniel Kay, and he will also serve as co-executive producer. Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores are producing through their Voltage Pictures company, alongside Friendly Films' David T. Friendly and Pierce Brosnan's producing partner Beau St. Clair. No production schedule was given, but Voltage will be selling the project »
Directed by John McTiernan
The concept of a film within a film is an idea that provides for truly interesting cinema. Films that are self-referential, satiric, and make fun of their own genre are often hilarious, thought-provoking, and downright fun. 1993’s cult favorite Last Action Hero is an action-fantasy that pokes fun at the action film genre in more ways than one. It stars the incomparable blockbuster movie star Arnold Schwarzenegger who is playing himself. Last Action Hero pretty much has it all and if you are a fan of the Austrian star or just action cinema in general, then this is the perfect film for you.
The film focuses on Danny Madigan (Austin O’Brien), a 12-year-old troublemaker obsessed with movies, in particular those of action hero Jack Slater, a fictionalized version of Schwarzenegger. »

Making a movie that revolves around time travel instantly creates paradoxes and often plot holes, but managed intelligently, the onscreen logic can make for fun and dangerous storytelling. This is a list is of the highest grossing movies and franchises that use time travel as a main story element (an example of a movie with time travel not as a main story element is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, which would have been #4 had it qualified).
I've cheated a bit by grouping franchises together, allowing me to write about more movies. Out of the 18 movies on the list I’ve seen 17, which might mean I really like movies with time travel. All numbers are worldwide box office grosses adjusted for inflation. Box office revenue numbers are from Box Office Mojo and The Numbers. Bits of trivia are from IMDb and Wikipedia. Inflation data comes via the Us Department of Labor. »

Coming between "Aliens" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," James Cameron's "The Abyss" is for better or worse, not as well remembered as either of those films. That said, few films would be, sandwiched inside two game-changing, blockbuster, sci-fi movies. But 25 years ago, on August 9th, Cameron delivered his underwater thriller well before he would make "Titanic," or take a submarine to the Mariana Trench, and while the weekend kept us busy, this making-of documentary might be a good way to kick off your week. Running one hour long, this doc kicks off with a bang, with the director underwater announcing: "I'm James Cameron, and I want to take you into a world of cold and darkness, and unrelenting pressure — the movie business." It then cuts to Cameron sit down interview where he announces that his aspirations: "If I couldn't do when '2001: A Space Odyssey' did for science »

“Twenty five years. Makes a girl think.” So said Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot, and she was rarely wrong about anything, except maybe her taste in husbands. Cinematically, an awful lot can happen in 25 years and Hollywood as we know it today, emerged from seismic developments that took place a quarter of a century ago. 1989 was a game-changer; an absolutely pivotal year in the evolution of 21st century Hollywood. Chances are, whatever you watch at the multiplex this weekend will be genetically traceable to that dark, iPad-less, internetless, Jedwardless time. For those of us who are not going gentle into the dark night of their forties, the specific date of this Big Bang was August 11th 1989. That was the day that Batman finally opened in the UK.
I had never seen a line of people actually queuing around the block, except in vintage documentaries about Star Wars, but »

More than most people, I understand the burning desire to get one more great "Terminator" film out of the weirdest, most haphazardly-run mega-franchise in modern film. After all, the 1984 original remains one of the greatest indie action films ever made. Beautifully plotted and incredibly well-built, "The Terminator" is one of those movies where everyone involved was in tune and they turned out something special as a result. And 1991's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" is one of the great action sequels, escalating the scale of the mayhem while offering some very smart twists on both character and plot. Since then, though, they've tried several times to hook the audience and draw them into further adventures, and they've never really cracked the code. "Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines," "Terminator: Salvation," and "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" all have fans, but none of them managed to resonate as widely as the first two films. »

The big bad bot himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, appears to have revealed a name change to the upcoming Terminator: Genesis, Paramount and Skydance’s update of the iconic sci-fi/action franchise. Unless there’s an inside joke on the set that we know nothing about, a new pic from Schwarzenegger’s Instagram account reveals that the film is now titled Terminator: Genisys.
The photo finds the star with his back to the camera, sitting in a chair with the official logo on its back. He tagged the Instagram account for the movie @TerminatorGenisys. His tweet linking to the photo was retweeted by Paramount’s verified Twitter account, suggesting that the new title is indeed legitimate.
The actor captioned the photo with the following thank you to the cast and crew of Genisys:
Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenisys for a fantastic shoot. »

For this week’s spotlight piece, I wanted to take a look at one of directing’s biggest A-listers of them all. The filmmaker in question? Well, that would be James Cameron, of course. A filmmaker who also does his best to literally change the world, Cameron is pretty special. In many ways, he really is the king of the world, so it’s only appropriate that we take a look at him in this particular article series. In any event, here we go now. Cameron got his start working behind the scenes on low budget exploitation before being given a chance to direct Piranha Part Two: The Spawning. He was fired from that project, but still has a credit. If ever there was an outlier on a resume, it’s that one. From there, he set out to make a true first feature, one that turned out to be none other than The Terminator. »

Nobody will ever have the balls to remake Back to the Future or The Terminator. They are the untouchable time travel classics. And without them we couldn’t have a movie like Hot Tub Time Machine, which paid it all back in homage in ways that wouldn’t make a lot of sense for people unfamiliar with those earlier cultural staples (and who’d just be confused now if there were multiples of them). Not a whole lot about the 2010 comedy mirrors Bttf, yet the ending has a similar, albeit more extreme, case of the present being altered for the better thanks to changes made via a trip to the past. The movie concludes with a brilliant joke: Rob Corddry‘s character has used his knowledge of the future (present) to invent Google before Google (he calls it “Lou-gle”). Sorry to spoil that for anyone who hasn’t seen the first Httm already, but »

There's no doubt the collaboration of James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger's on The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day are the duo's most popular films, but when it comes to True Lies it's the one film from Cameron where he really let loose with the humor and yet still maintained the level of action we've come to expect from him. The film is absurd in most every way and in the midst of telling a story about Harry Tasker (Schwarzenegger), a spy attempting to track down nuclear weapons sold to a terrorist organization, Cameron decides to deviate from that plot for a solid hour as the film's lead character suspects his wife, Helen (Jamie Lee Curtis), of infidelity. With the help of his partner (Tom Arnold) and all the government resources at his disposal, he spies on his unsuspecting wife in a movie that seems to have been pitched »

This summer's Planet Of The Apes sequel breaks new ground in effects. Ryan wonders what Dawn means for the future of big-screen CG...
When Terminator 2: Judgment Day came out in 1990, there was much talk in the media about its digital effects, and what they meant for the future of filmmaking. Since then, cinema’s passed a number of significant milestones, each surpassing what came before it. Jurassic Park represented a leap forward in the quality of computer-generated creatures and their integration with a live-action sequence. The Matrix showcased a new generation of fluid camera moves and effects that could make a movie look like a comic book drawn to life. The Phantom Menace, The Lord Of The Rings and Avatar broke new ground in performance capture and 3D.
The new film is a continuation of Cameron's "Terminator 2: Judgement Day".
In the first film, The 'Terminator' is sent back in time from the year 2029 to 1984 to kill 'Sarah Connor' (Linda Hamilton).
'Kyle Reese' (Michael Biehn), a soldier from the future, is sent back in time to protect Sarah, so that her unborn son can lead the future resistance forces.
Three sequels were produced including "Terminator 2: Judgment Day »

My hometown Mom-and-Pop video store used to have a magical “freebie” bin. This bin was the resting place for any excess promotional materials the store procured. The freebie bin rarely held any blockbuster movie posters, but it was always stocked with horror titles, and being a diehard horror fan, I outfitted my room with materials I collected from the freebie bin. (Plus, I once found a Ghost Dad shirt lurking in the bottom!) One of my favorite finds was a giant poster from Cast a Deadly Spell. This means that while many girls my age had New Kids on the Block or a fresh from T2 Edward Furlong pasted on their walls, my room was adorned with a scruffy Fred Ward. And thus, I was set on the horror path I am still ambling down today.
