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.

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? »

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!

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, »

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. »
2K today announced the debut of 2015 WWE Hall of Fame inductee and global action film icon Arnold Schwarzenegger in WWE 2K16, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE franchise.

The latest Terminator flick, Terminator: Genisys, featured several twists of classic scenes from Terminator and while the film has been met with a mostly negative response, that hasn't stopped Arnold Schwarzenegger from re-enacting scenes from other Terminator films; this time, he's re-enacted the biker bar scene from Terminator 2: Judgment Day in a promo for the upcoming WWE 2K16 video-game.

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 »

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

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 »

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. »

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.
