Watch Arnold Schwarzenegger recreate the ‘Terminator 2′ bar scene with WWE wrestlers

27 July 2015 1:56 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Arnold Schwarzenegger has had an illustrious career as an iconic Hollywood leading man in both action movies and comedies, his most popular role to date continues to be that of the T-800 in the Terminator franchise. Schwarzenegger brought the character back one more time earlier this summer with Terminator: Genisys, establishing the character’s lasting appeal in the lead-up to the movie, most notably with a prank involving a display at Madame Tussaud’s wax museum.

The release of the movie is not the last that the public has seen of the character, however, as the videogame publisher 2K Sports announced today that pre-ordering the WWE 2k16 game will give players a unique opportunity; a chance to square off against current wrestlers as the Terminator himself.

To promote this new feature of the game, a trailer was released that saw Schwarzenegger reprise the role once again for a »

27 July 2015 6:47 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Terminator will be a pre-order bonus for WWE 2K16.

Two versions of the T-800 from The Terminator and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day will be available as playable characters. In both films, the Terminator is portrayed by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

A new trailer announced the news, as The Terminator enters a bar and scans Daniel Bryan, Paige, Eva Marie and others, only to be confronted by Dean Ambrose.

Schwarzenegger was inducted into the celebrity wing of the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year.

The actor also featured in Triple H's Terminator-themed entrance video ahead of The Game's match with Sting at WrestleMania 31.

Schwarzenegger's connections to WWE include appearing over the years on WWE Raw and WWE Smackdown, where he tangled with Triple H and The Miz.

He also inducted his long-time friend and former WWE Champion Bruno Sammartino into the Hall of Fame, and starred opposite WWE »

10 Reasons Terminator Genisys Isn’t As Bad As You Think

11 July 2015 3:49 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Terminator: Genisys has taken a lot of heat from movie fans since its release late last week – but is it really deserved?

Regardless of criticism, the fifth film in the storied Terminator franchise is still the third best movie in the series to date. And while that might be setting the bar low considering how disappointing Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation were, it’s still something to consider. 

Something else to consider is that fans tend to view the series through rose tinted glasses; if you go back and watch The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day today, they’re certainly not the greatest films of all time, or even close to it. They’re fun action movies, not untouchable pinnacles of the craft.

What they are, frankly, is smart action films with a sci-fi twist and a decent handling of time travel, a »

Watch: Video Essay Explores The Secrets Of Making A Good Movie Sequel

8 July 2015 2:15 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Because we’re in the doldrums of the summer blockbuster season, our minds have been preoccupied with the state of studio filmmaking. Following the tepid domestic response to “Terminator: Genisys” and “Magic Mike Xxl” over the weekend, we wondered aloud on Monday if sequels might need the same level of scrutiny that failures of “original films” like “Tomorrowland” garner. There must be something going on in the internet psychosphere because a video is making the rounds that attempts to break down what exactly makes or breaks a sequel. Bluntly titled “What Makes A Sequel Good?,” the new video from Now You See It attempts to answer the titular question. In five minutes, examples of both good and bad sequels – specifically part 2s – are compared to each other to find distinct differences. The good examples include both Terminator 2: Judgment Day and “Toy Story 2,” with the bad featuring “Speed 2: Cruise Control »

Is Terminator Genisys the worst blockbuster ever?

6 July 2015 2:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Anghus Houvouras on whether Terminator Genisys is the worst blockbuster of all time…

An insulting, paradox riddled mess. A senseless, poorly written, incompetently directed embarrassment. A master class in how to mismanage a franchise reboot. Terminator Genisys arrived in theaters this week with little fanfare other than a ringing endorsement from James Cameron. Something that probably would have meant more before having seen Avatar. It’s terrible, which is something a lot of people predicted based on a heinous marketing campaign that revealed every lazy twist. If you can’t make a movie look exciting or at least interesting based on a two-minute trailer, the prospects for the finished film are going to be bleak.

‘Bleak’ is a great way to describe Genisys, which is so bad that it deserves a hyperbolic post-mortem. This wretched, stillborn blockbuster needs an autopsy.

1. Nonsense personified

I’m not sure if this is specific enough. »

Composer Lorne Balfe Talks His Score For Terminator Genisys

6 July 2015 10:40 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Paramount Pictures’ and Skydance ProductionsTerminator Genisys led the worldwide weekend box office race earning a combined total of $102.7 million in 46 countries plus North America.

Directed by Alan Taylor, Genisys returns to the Oscar winning Terminator franchise to take familiar characters in a new direction. When 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, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: to reset the future.

Terminator Genisys is written by Laeta Kalogridis & Patrick Lussier and produced by David Ellison and Dana Goldberg. The franchise has two more films scheduled to be released in 2016 and 2017.

Terminator Genisys review – a karaoke rehash

5 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Billed as a return to the spirit of James Cameron’s original films, this reboot lacks smartness and wit

Marginally better than Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines or Terminator: Salvation but still light years short of either The Terminator or Terminator 2: Judgment Day, this utterly unnecessary (if occasionally entertaining) fifth instalment takes us back to 1984, where history is being rewritten once again. Revisiting the events of James Cameron’s original movie(s), Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) is sent spinning through time to protect mother-of-the-revolution Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) from termination by a T-800 killing machine. But the past isn’t what it used to be – Sarah is no longer a waitress but already a warrior, Kyle is behind the times when it comes to foreseeing the future, and Arnie’s iconic cyborg winds up locked in battle with his ageing self who is (he tells us repeatedly) “old, »

The Last Sci-Fi Blog: 5 Things to Love (and 5 Things to Hate) About 'Terminator Genisys'

3 July 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Terminator Genisys, the fifth entry in what was once one of the greatest science fiction film series of all time, is here and it's bound to bring out a lot of mixed emotions in fans. On one level, it directly quotes (and even takes place during) the events of the iconic first film while bringing in recognizable elements from Terminator 2: Judgment Day. However, it's also a silly and often hammy movie, putting it more in line with the later entries in the franchise. To properly capture what's so good and what's so rotten about Genisys, let's break this down: what is there to love in the movie and what is there to hate? Because there is plenty of both.  What To Love 1. A Clever First Half Like 2009's Star Trek reboot, Terminator Genisys attempts to...

Editorial: Sarah Connor is the Soul of the Terminator Franchise

3 July 2015 1:13 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Originally appeared in the September 2014 issue of Deadly Magazine] There is a scene 75 minutes into 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day,  in which James Cameron pinpoints the humanity amidst all the time travel, liquid metal and state-of-the-art special effects. Young John Connor (Edward Furlong) is bonding with the T-800 machine assigned to protect him (Arnold Schwarzenegger), by teaching him how to high five. The moment is designed to underscore the father/son dynamic between John and the Terminator, as well as provide a visual symbol of the hope for mankind – that we are able to co-exist alongside technology. And, if we’re reading even more deeply, that we can still master it.

A great deal of Terminator 2’s running time is devoted to the connection between John and Schwarzenegger’s T-800. However, it’s telling that the most poignant shot – the one that says the most about their relationship – is from the perspective of John’s mother, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton »

Schwarzenegger, Hamilton & More -- See Your Favorite "Terminator" Stars Then and Now!

3 July 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

He's back. With the next "Terminator" flick landing in theaters on July 1st with "Terminator Genisys," we're taking a trip down memory lane to find out what your favorite stars from the action franchise have been up to since the original movie.  Arnold Schwarzenegger won the world over when he hit the big screen in "Terminator" back in 1984. The flick focused on a cyborg who was sent to earth from the future to kill a waitress whose unborn child will one day become the leader of humanity against the machines. Arnold went on to steal the screen in action flicks like "Predator" to "Total Recall" after, in addition to appearing in all four "Terminator" films. In 2003, Schwarzenegger was elected as Governor of California, and again in 2006. He faced controversy in 2011 when reports surfaced that he had an extramarital affair with his house keeper which led to his divorce from longtime wife Maria Shriver. »

The highs and lows of the soft movie reboot

2 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

This summer has seen Mad Max, Jurassic World and Terminator movies hit cinemas. Ryan looks at what’s good and bad about the soft reboot...

This piece contains mild spoilers for Jurassic World, Mad Max: Fury Road and Terminator: Genisys

If the sequel was a late 20th century phenomenon, ushered into being thanks to the likes of James Bond, The Godfather and Planet Of The Apes, then the soft reboot is a peculiar product of the 21st.

Unlike a conventional remake or reboot, which often abandon characters, plots and settings in favour of an entirely new approach, the soft reboot is less drastic. Jj Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie is a prime example; it casts new actors in the roles of the Original Series’ famous roster of characters - Chris Pine replacing William Shatner as Kirk, Zachary Quinto replacing Leonard Nimoy as Spock, and so on - and sends them »
