From Swashbucklers to Supermen: A Brief History of Action-Movie Heroes

1 September 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There’s a moment in Mission: Impossible—Rogue Nation — Tom Cruise career-saver, franchise Mvp and the summer's best non-Imperator Furiosa action blockbuster — where the CIA director refers to the film's relentless hero as "the living manifestation of destiny." As a government official talking about an unpredictable agent, the line is patently (if knowingly) ridiculous. As Alec Baldwin talking about Tom Cruise, the dialogue sounds right on the money. That phrase could be dropped into the first sentence of his biography and nobody would think twice.

Terminator Genisys crosses $400 million worldwide

30 August 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It may have stumbled at the North American box office with just $89.5 million, but Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions’ Terminator Genisys has pushed its worldwide gross to $409.5 million, topping the international box office for the second weekend in a row thanks to its continued strong performance in China.

This weekend saw Genisys adding a further $23.6 million from 25 markets, with $23.4 million of that coming from China, where it has so far earned $82.8 million since it debuted last Sunday and scored the fourth-biggest ever opening day for a Hollywood movie.

Before its opening in China, Genisys had been perceived as a box office flop, but is now closing in on Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines’ $433.4 million gross, which would place it second behind Terminator 2: Judgment Day ($519.8 million) in terms of the franchise’s biggest earners.

Oh, and it’s also the tenth-biggest movie of 2015. So, how long until we get confirmation on a sequel? »

'Hellions' Trailer Unleashes Trick-or-Treaters from Hell

19 August 2015 11:13 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We're slowly creeping into the fall season, with the last of the big budget summer tentpoles fading from the multiplex. Soon, it will be October, and that means it's time for some scary movies. Earlier today, we got a sneak peek at the The Witch, which looks terrifying. Now, we get the first trailer for Hellions, and it seems destined to become a Halloween classic!

Film Review: ‘Hitman: Agent 47’

19 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

During a rare moment of quiet amid the glass-smashing, brain-bashing mayhem of “Hitman: Agent 47,” a character offers the wise observation that we are all a bit more complicated than our internal circuitry might suggest. Applying this logic to the movie itself, it’s fair to conclude that while Aleksander Bach’s directing debut is indeed the junky, incoherent shoot-’em-up we feared it might be, to dismiss it as just another late-August studio craptacular doesn’t quite do it justice. But what to call it, exactly? The 47th best action film of 2015? A feature-length Audi commercial, or a promo reel for the Singapore Tourism Board? The most unnecessary artistic contribution ever made by someone named Bach? Fox is surely hoping that “surprise box office hit” might be a plausible alternative, though the best one will likely be able to say on that front is that where disastrous franchise relaunches are concerned, »

The tragedy of RoboCop, Terminator and other AIs

11 August 2015 5:33 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We love RoboCop and Terminator 2 for their action and characters. But there’s also tragic element that makes their stories soar...

Nb: The following contains spoilers for Terminator 2, Terminator Genisys, Blade Runner and RoboCop.

Imagine you’re Detroit cop Alex Murphy. You’re an ordinary man in every respect: a loving husband and father with a home and a mortgage. But then you wake up one day and you aren’t Alex Murphy anymore. The hands you look down on are no longer your hands. Your memories have been replaced by directives.

The cinemagoers who made Paul Verhoeven’s RoboCop a hit in 1987 probably weren’t expecting a film about the nature of human existence, and some may not have consciously noted its philosophical undercurrent at all. But it’s this existentialist edge that, when coupled with its searing violence and black humour, makes for such an irresistible sci-fi movie. »

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 »

Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator is heading to WWE 2K16 as a pre-order bonus

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.
