'True Lies' (1994) - Best Movies #5

15 July 2014 9:34 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

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 »

Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and the future of CG

15 July 2014 5:53 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

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...

Feature

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.

Together with actor Andy Serkis, New Zealand-based studio Weta Digital has done more to further the art of performance capture than just about anybody else. »

The Unseen: Reflecting on Martin Campbell & HBO’s ‘Cast a Deadly Spell’

2 July 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

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.

More "Terminator" Updates

30 June 2014 2:01 PM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take another look @ set images from director Alan Taylor's currently shooting feature "Terminator", starring Emilia Clarke as 'Sarah Connor', Jai Courtney as 'Kyle Reese', Jason Clarke as 'John Connor' and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the 'T-800':

"The way that the character is written, it's a machine underneath," said Schwarzenegger about returning to the franchise.

"It's this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh.

"And the Terminator's flesh ages, just like any other human being's flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages."

"Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800."

  

"And then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets ahold of him. 

"So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie..."

Takashi Miike's 'Audition' Getting Remake From Producer Of 'Terminator 2,' 'Basic Instinct ' & 'Showgirls'

30 June 2014 6:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Last year we listed our 5 Best & 5 Worst Horror Movie Remakes, and noted that Takashi Miike's "Audition" had "mercifully avoided the remake treatment." We spoke too soon. One of the handful of early films that put the filmmaker on the radar of genre enthusiasts, "Audition" is now going down the remake road. Deadline reports that producer Mario Kassar — the man who brought us, among other things, "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," "Basic Instinct," "Showgirls," "The Doors" and "Rambo III" — is putting together an American redo of the movie that is based on the novel by Ryu Murakami. And for better or worse, there won't be any major changes, with the story (now set in the United States, duh) still following a widower who holds fake auditions in order to find a new mate, but meets his match with one unforgettable choice. And if you're hoping this is one that'll get stuck in development hell, »

'Terminator Reboot' May Simply Be Titled 'Terminator'

29 June 2014 1:08 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Paramount Pictures' Terminator has been in production since April, and there is still very little we know about this upcoming reboot, aside from confirmed cast members such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Matt Smith and J.K. Simmons. A new report reveals that the original title, Terminator: Genesis has been scrapped in favor of Terminator. The movie's "slate title" is Vista, but that was never intended as the official title.

The news doesn't come as much of a surprise, since Paramount's announcement in April that production had started referred to the movie as simply Terminator or the Terminator reboot. The report from Bleeding Cool reveals that a number of tie-in merchandise, licensing and toys are being branded as Terminator products, not Terminator: Genesis.

The story, written by Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis, is said to be a "re-imagining" of the franchise, according to cast member J.K. Simmons, »

'Terminator' Producer Plans 'Audition' Remake

27 June 2014 6:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Mario Kassar, who has served as a producer on blockbusters such as First Blood, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Basic Instinct, is mounting a remake of Takashi Miike's cult classic Audition.

The original film, which was adapted from Ry&#251 Murakami's 1997 novel, centered on a lonely widower (Ryo Ishibashi) who puts out a fake casting call to help find a new girlfriend. When he finds the one girl he likes, Asami Yamasaki (Eihi Shiina), his quest to find the new love of his life turns into a nightmare beyond comprehension.

The story is said to be quite similar to the original book and movie, only with an American setting. The plot centers on a widowed man named Sam Davis, who is convinced by his filmmaker friend to hold a casting call for a fake movie. The girl he falls for is a ballerina named Evie Lawrence.

Richard Gray is directing from his own adapted screenplay, »

The Nostalgia Files: ‘Hook’ (1991)

23 June 2014 3:49 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hook

Written by James V. Hart, Nick Castle, Malia Scotch Marmo, and J. M. Barrie

Directed by Steven Spielberg

USA, 1991

Steven Spielberg is known the world over for creating genuine movie magic. From his blockbuster splash Jaws in 1975 up until his 2012 biopic Lincoln, Spielberg is certainly a gifted filmmaker. Very few auteurs are still work today but Spielberg keeps banging out films that dazzle the senses and leave an everlasting impression on the viewer. However, some of Spielberg’s films haven’t achieved the recognition and respect they deserve. There are certain films that this movie master made that didn’t quite achieve a high status. One such film is 1991’s Hook, a fantasy adventure which didn’t really score well with critics but filled children of the 90s with  joy, innocence, and wonder.

The film follows middle-aged lawyer Peter Banning (Robin Williams), a bitter individual who has forgotten who he is. »

What are the 36 Most Expensive Movies Ever Madec

21 June 2014 9:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: Thanks to a reader I've added Speed 2 to the list, if you find more that should be added let me know and we'll see if we can make this a little more accurate. In today's Hollywood, movies don't seem to exist first and foremost as pieces of entertainment or as even great stories to be told. Yes, you could argue that as far back as the studio system has existed it's been a "business first" attitude, but a focus on budgets, box office and salaries seems to be at an all-time high. If you disagree, fair enough, but as a willing participant in such coverage I'm also somewhat ashamed to admit I think the heavy focus negatively effects the kind of movies we get. So, what am I going to doc I'm going to give it even more coverage. Business Insider has posted a list of the 30 most expense »

Which movie makes you cry the most? Digital Spy staff picks

19 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In case you haven't heard, The Fault in Our Stars is kind of a sad film. The reaction across the pond (where the film has been out for a couple of weeks) has essentially been one long, drawn out ugly-cry, to the point where Slate have even released a handy guide to keeping your eye make-up intact.

Even the movie's stars Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff and Laura Dern aren't immune, as they admitted in our video interview. We also asked them what other films have made them cry, which sparked a discussion back in the office about the most effective tearjerkers of all time.

Below, Digital Spy staffers reveal the films that are guaranteed to leave them a weeping mess.

Good Will Hunting – Emma Dibdin, Features Editor

While prototypical inspirational teacher movie Dead Poets' Society is arguably a more obvious pick, Robin Williams's similarly inspirational performance here as wry, »

Elon Musk has some 'Terminator'-esque fears about humanity's fate

18 June 2014 8:40 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

When children see a scary movie, it’s a parent’s job to reassure them: “Everything’s okay, it was just a movie. There is no freaky clown who’s going to choke you and drag you under your bed.” When you’re older, you’re not supposed to be so easily frightened by the things you see in the movies—but even when there are unsettling, apocalyptic onscreen developments, it never hurts to have some genius scientist point out the flaws in the nightmarish logic.

For example, The Terminator envisions a horrifying scenario where artificial intelligence turns on mankind and nukes the planet. »

100 years of animated characters in live-action films

17 June 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From 1914 to Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes in the present, Ryan charts the evolution of animated characters in live-action film...

Feature

Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and this year's Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes chart the ascendance of a new, genetically-modified species of intelligent ape. Yet behind the scenes, these films also show us the technical evolution of digital effects, and how seamlessly live-action and computer-generated characters can be blended.

Where 20th Century Fox's earlier Planet Of The Apes films, beginning in 1968, used actors and prosthetic effects to bring their talking simians to life, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes used the latest developments in performance capture to create some extraordinarily realistic characters. With its story told largely from the perspective of a genetically-modified chimpanzee named Caesar, Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' success hinged on the quality of its effects »

Watch: L.A. River Chase Scene From ‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ Recreated In ‘Grand Theft Auto V’

6 June 2014 6:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With James Cameron so intent on pushing filmmaking further and further into the digital realm, pursuing 3D and computer technology capable of matching reality to a photo-realistic level, it’s surprising that his focus hasn’t turned more towards video games. He’s credited consoles like the Nintendo 3Ds in powering 3D cinema while rarely dipping into that format for telling stories, but as a new video proves, that hasn’t stopped gamers from attempting the director’s signature style. The ability to create cutscenes from gameplay has blown the doors open on how people frame their in-game accomplishments, and, combined with YouTube, how they share it. For some, that option allows for level walkthroughs and bragging rights; for others, like YouTube user John Chapman and his “Grand Theft Auto V” online team, recreating “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” seems the better, more entertaining option. Indeed, in a recently uploaded video »
