The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'

16 April 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)

And so the essential twist that led to »

Cameron Talks Avatar, Terminator, Innovation, & More

14 April 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

On Saturday, visionary director James Cameron appeared on Reddit in an Ama chat where he answered all kinds of questions from fans and gave his opinions on various topics. Along the way, he gave an update on the upcoming Avatar sequels, dished on non-Cameron Terminator projects, and spoke a bit about the direction he’d like to see Hollywood go in.

Here are a few highlight’s from Cameron’s Ama:

On Avatar:

“The second, third and fourth films all go into production simultaneously. They’re essentially all in preproduction now, because we are designing creatures, settings, and characters that span all three films. And we should be finished with all three scripts within the next, I would say, six weeks.

The biggest pressure I feel right now is cutting out things I love to get the film down to a length that is affordable. There hasn’t been »

Terminator: Genesis – 10 Things You Need To Know

14 April 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Despite the fact that the last two movies in the ever-expanding canon were of the middling and downright terrible varieties, The Terminator franchise remains one of the most beloved and most revered in cinematic history, mostly thanks to those movies written and directed by James Cameron. Yes, The Terminator and its follow-up, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, are renowned for their groundbreaking special effects, memorable characters, ingenious sci-fi plottings and – of course – Arnold Schwarzenegger in the role that made him super famous all over the world.

Despite the fact that only 50% of the movies in the Terminator series are actually good, though, the legacy of this series is yet to diminish, and its reputation refuses to die. Though it’s true that Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines failed to live up to the cinematic genius that was Terminator 2, it also wasn’t a total disaster… it just didn’t feel »

Linda Hamilton Cast in Season 2 of Defiance

10 April 2014 3:08 PM, PDT | ScifiMafia | See recent ScifiMafia news »

The absolutely wonderful Linda Hamilton, whom I’ve loved since the days of the original Beauty and the Beast series, and whom many others have loved since the first Terminator movie, and whose work in Terminator 2: Judgment Day is a great source of workout inspiration for me (“Good morning Dr. Silberman, how’s the knee?” is my favorite line), and […] »

TV Review: From Dusk Till Dawn (Episode 2: Blood Runs Thick)

1 April 2014 3:22 AM, PDT | iconsoffright.com | See recent Icons of Fright news »

*As always, these From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series reviews will feature quite a few spoilers, so you’ve been warned*

 

While the pilot episode of El Rey’s From Dusk Till Dawn TV series did a great job of establishing their version of the Gecko brothers and Earl McGraw (and introduced viewers to the character of Freddie), episode two gave us the new interpretations of the Fuller family. Originally played in the film by Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis and Ernest Liu, in the TV series, the roles of Jacob Fuller and his kids Kate and Scott, are now played by Robert Patrick (T2, A Fire In The Sky), Madison Davenport and Brandon Soo Hoo.

Following the death of his wife, former minster Jacob is in the middle of taking his kids on a long due road-trip, and in episode 2, we’re introduced to a new subplot involving Kate’s »

Terminator: Genesis Gains Byung-hun Lee, Michael Gladis And Sandrine Holt

31 March 2014 7:15 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Casting for the main roles in Terminator: Genesis, Skydance and Paramount’s upcoming reboot of the iconic Terminator franchise, concluded last week when Dayo Okeniyi signed on for the role of Danny Dyson, the brilliant inventor son of Cyberdene Systems employee Miles Dyson (played by Joe Morton in Terminator 2: Judgment Day). Now, the producers are getting to work rounding out the cast with some supporting players.

Byung-hun Lee, known for his role as Storm Shadow (above) in the G.I. Joe films, has been cast in an unknown supporting part. Given his martial arts skills, I’d imagine that Terminator: Genesis will utilize him as either a soldier battling Cybernet or, in what would be a far more interesting role for the actor, as one of the new Terminators. Whatever role he ends up playing, Skydance is teasing that it will be “a doozy.” Let the speculation begin.

31 March 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Now that all the primary cast members are locked in, Terminator: Genesis is starting to round out the supporting cast, bringing on Byung-hun Lee (G.I. Joe Retaliation), Michael Gladis (Mad Men) and Sandrine Holt (House of Cards).

No details were given for any of these new cast members' roles, but The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Byung-hun Lee's role, "promises to be a doozy." They join a cast that includes Arnold Schwarzenegger as a T-800 Terminator, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, J.K. Simmons as a detective who has been obsessed with the Terminator/Sarah Connor case since 1984 and Dayo Okeniyi, who signed on last week to play the son of Cyberdyne engineer Miles Dyson.

The story is said to be a continuation of the original franchise, tying up previous story threads while taking into consideration the passage of time between the two movies. »

Hunger Games actor Dayo Okeniyi lands final Terminator lead

29 March 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Dayo Okeniyi has joined the cast of Terminator: Genesis.

The Hunger Games actor landed the final lead role as Danny Dyson in the movie, reports Deadline.

Both Okeniyi and Attack the Block's John Boyega were apparently the top choices to play Danny but the role went to Okeniyi, who was also wanted in one of the lead roles for Jj Abrams's Star Wars movie.

Dyson is described as a "Steve Jobs genius" who is a crucial part of the conclusion of the film. He is the son of Miles Dyson, the brain behind Skynet, who was played by Joe Morton in Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Scheduled for a 2015 release, Terminator: Genesis already stars Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Clarke and Jk Simmons.

Arnold Schwarzenegger will return as the Terminator.

Okeniyi played Thresh in The Hunger Games and starred in The Spectacular Now. »

Hunger Games Actor to Play Miles Dyson's Son in Terminator: Genesis

28 March 2014 5:25 PM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

A few days ago, it was revealed that "Attack the Block" star John Boyega was in talks to play the son of Miles Dyson in "Terminator: Genesis." It was also revealed that he's being considered for "Star Wars: Episode VII." And since both projects are shooting at the same time, he can only appear in one of them. Now comes word that the "Terminator: Genesis" role officially went to Dayo Okeniyi. He'll play the son of Dyson, the scientist from "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," who helped create Skynet. The son was briefly seen in the film. Okeniyi is known for such films as "The Hunger Games," "The Spectacular Now," "Runner Runner" and "Endless Love." »

Dayo Okeniyi Snags Lead Role In Terminator: Genesis

28 March 2014 3:17 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Today, Skydance Productions and Paramount Pictures completed main casting for their upcoming franchise reboot, Terminator: Genesis, with the casting of Nigerian actor Dayo Okeniyi in the key role of Danny Dyson, a brilliant inventor who, according to sources, factors heavily into the conclusion of Genesis and is also the son of cyborg developer Miles Dyson  (played by Joe Morton in Terminator 2: Judgment Day). Danny, for those who don’t know, holds the key to the technology responsible for Skynet’s creation. 

A few days ago, we learned that Skydance and Paramount were eying Attack the Block star John Boyega for the pivotal role. Boyega immediately became involved in a Hollywood tug-of-war between two veteran sci-fi properties: Terminator and Star Wars (which is getting a new lease on life of its own with J.J. Abrams at the helm). Evidently, the robots were no match for the Jedi, seeing as Skydance »

'Terminator: Genesis' Casts Miles Dyson's Son Danny Dyson

28 March 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Well, that was fast. Just a couple days after it was revealed that the hunt was on for someone to play Danny Dyson (son of Miles Dyson, the brain behind Skynet, who got blown up real good in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day"), he has been found. And it's not "Attack The Block" star John Boyega. Instead, Dayo Okeniyi—perhaps best known for playing Thresh in "The Hunger Games," and who has also booked roles in recent movies "Runner Runner" and "Endless Love"—has snared the part in "Terminator: Genesis." Basically, Paramount locked down the actor who was contending with Boyega, with both actors also sought for "Star Wars: Episode 7." (This move basically takes Okeniyi out of the running for that franchise, but let's refocus back on 'Genesis.') Okeniyi will play a Steve Jobs-type genius who is apparently a crucial component of the third act of the Alan Taylor-directed movie. »
