I’ll Be Back: The Diminishing Returns Of The Terminator Franchise

23 April 2015 7:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The year is 1984, and a muscular cyborg from the future pursues an innocent Sarah Connor across the comparative hellscape of 1980s Los Angeles. Accompanied by time-traveler Kyle Reese, Connor must survive the onslaught of the T-800, a vicious and apparently unkillable robot sent to murder her before she becomes the mother of the future savior John Connor, who will lead the future battle against Skynet.

The Terminator is a film right out of the 1980s, featuring clothing, music, and images that will remain imprinted on the audience’s mind and in culture for years to come. As a quintessential film of the 80s, it is hopelessly dated. Its aesthetic was camp almost before it hit the theatres, and its one-liners (“I’ll be back,” “Come with me if you want to live”) both iconic and, in the end, pretty damn silly. Yet The Terminator lives on because it gave exactly »

23 specially-shot movie teaser trailers

21 April 2015 4:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Psycho to Jurassic Park, here are 23 teaser trailers that don't show a frame of footage from the movies they're advertising...

These days, we're used to the marketing hype for a major film building up about two years ahead of release. Visitors to Comic-Con got a preview of Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, for example, more than two years ahead of its due date. Our collective hunger for a first look at major forthcoming films is such that, it seems, studios are keen to show off their work-in-progress earlier and earlier.

But there are ways of teasing a forthcoming movie without showing a frame of the finished product, which is where the following list comes in. They're all examples of promos that manage to get across the flavour of a future film without going into story details. Some of them were made before a foot of celluloid was exposed, »

So Far 'Terminator: Genisys' is Just a 'Terminator' Franchise Mash-Up

17 April 2015 7:18 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It's no secret that we haven't been impressed with what we've seen from Terminator: Genisys so far. Even with the most recent trailer revealing a big plot twist (watch the trailer right here), it all just seems desperate to shake up a franchise that seems to have peaked with Terminator 2: Judgment Day. And why is that? Well, a new video examines why this latest iteration of the Arnold Schwarzenegger action franchise may feel so stale and tired. Basically, it's just a carbon copy of every other Terminator movie, and not just because of the obvious homages. You'll what I mean after you check out this video. Watch below! Here's Why The New Terminator Movie Seems So Familiar from Cracked: You can watch the most recent Terminator: Genisys trailer right here. To be fair, there's a chance you could do this with any film franchise that is coming »

Latest Trailer For Terminator: Genisys Throws Up A Curveball

13 April 2015 7:59 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just when you thought you had Terminator: Genisys‘ convoluted timeline all mapped out ahead of the film’s debut in July, Paramount Pictures has thrown up a curveball in the form of this all-too-revealing new trailer which, it should be said, contains a massive spoiler that essentially rewrites everything we’ve deduced thus far. Such is the beauty of time travel movies, right?

We’ll not delve into any of the finer details here, though, should you want to enter the theater in a couple of months time with a blank slate, but let’s just say that Jason Clarke’s John Connor has a much bigger role to play besides spearheading the future human resistance.

On the opposite end of the timeline, Jai Courtney’s Kyle Resse is the brave soldier being sent back in time to supposedly protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), a young woman who he »

MTV Movie Awards Shocker! Another PG-13 Film to Win Golden Popcorn Award

10 April 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A blockbuster rated PG-13 is destined to win the Golden Popcorn at the MTV Movie Awards this weekend, judging by the show’s recent winners.

Schwarzenegger on 'Terminator Salvation': It Sucked!

4 April 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Terminator Genisys is set to be one of this summer's biggest blockbusters. And it is riding a current wave of nostalgia that is seeing quite a few revivals at the box office, including Jurassic World and Mad Max: Fury Road. But it's one of the few upcoming movies to include its major franchise star at the core, with Arnold Schwarzenegger set to reprise his legendary role as the unstoppable T-800 Cyborg. This will mark the first time he's played the character since 2003's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. He had to miss out on Terminator Salvation, because he was Governor of California at the time. But don't think he's bother by that at all. About not appearing in the movie, he quite boldly states:

"Thank god. It sucked!"

Terminator Salvation is an anomaly in the franchise, as it was the first and only movie not to include Arnold Schwarzenegger. »

New Terminator Genisys TV Spot Lands

27 March 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

As Arnold Schwarzenegger explains in the new issue of Empire, Terminator Genisys is untethered from the fiddly business of having to dot all the 'i's and cross the 't's of previous films in the franchise. But swerving that timeline tangle doesn't mean that the sci-fi actioner won't be paying homage to Terminator lore. This new TV spot distills a fair few of them into 30 seconds of cybernetic showcasing. There's a first proper look at J.K. Simmons as Detective O'Brien, a corner of officialdom a lot more willing to take all the doomsday prophesying at face value than, say, Dr. Silberman in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Never mind rushing and dragging, here's J.K. scarpering. For those not already in the know, Genisys starts in 2029, with the war between the human rebels and Skynet’s malicious machines is in full swing. Present and correct – though played now by different actors – are »

Arnold Schwarzenegger, straight from the 'Terminator: Genisys' set

25 March 2015 9:01 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New Orleans – Arnold Schwarzenegger is The Terminator.  The character is iconic and at least two of the movies stand pretty high in the pantheon of science fiction films.  Notably, when the AFI put together its list of the top 50 heroes and top 50 villains of all time, Schwarzenegger's character appeared on both.    Here is the thing – even today, fully 30 years after Arnold Schwarzenegger materialized, he is still the Terminator and getting the opportunity to watch him play the part on set in a new film is something special.  The faces around him have changed, we saw him walking next to Emilia Clarke's Sarah Connor and Jai Courtney's Kyle Reese, but there's something about him, especially in the appropriate garb, that says, "Terminator." So, here we are on a hot July day in New Orleans, watching this iconic actor reprise his most iconic role.  And, whatever the movie may turn »

How 'Terminator: Genisys' plans to time-travel: From the Nasa set

25 March 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

New Orleans – It seems right that a facility once used to make components of the Saturn V rocket for Nasa now houses a film set being used to catapult the imagination far into the future.    Jules Verne wrote "From the Earth to the Moon," as science fiction, but the Saturn V helped make traveling to the moon a reality.  The tables are now turned as a wholly different, and quite fictional, sort of traveling is being contemplated inside, and it is more of the H.G. Wells variety than the sort Verne envisioned. On a huge sound stage inside that Nasa facility is machine constructed for traveling, not in time but in space.  Referred to by those working on the production as a "Tdd," the machine on set is a Time Displacement Device, and it looks as though the entire thing can spin around creating something of a sphere around those in the device. »

New Stills For Terminator: Genisys Land; Has Matt Smith’s Character Been Revealed?

24 March 2015 12:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Between all of the trailers, stills and clips released as part of Paramount’s marketing hoopla for Terminator: Genisys, one question still remains: Who exactly is Matt Smith playing? When the former Doctor Who joined the cast last year, his announcement included one brief description that told us he would step into the shoes of “a new character with a strong connection to John Connor.”

For the rebooted prequel, Connor is played by Jason Clarke, his mother Sarah by Emilia Clarke, Kyle Reese by Jai Courtney and the iconic T-800 by Arnold Schwarzenegger. So far the main players have all been identified with the exception of Smith, whose role has been kept under wraps. Until very recently that is, as an audience member who attended an advance screening of the movie in Arizona dropped a major scoop to the folks at Latino Review.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Plays a “Combination” of His Previous Characters in Terminator: Genisys

24 March 2015 9:49 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

We got a new look at Arnold Schwarzenegger as a grey-haired Terminator yesterday in new Terminator: Genisys images, and a few more photos from director Alan Taylor’s upcoming sequelboot have arrived, along with a bit more info on the circumstances of Schwarzenegger’s return. We know that Genisys treads some of the same territory as The Terminator and T2, as Jai Courtney’s Kyle Reese is sent back in time by the adult John Connor (Jason Clarke) in order to prevent his mother (Emilia Clarke) from being murdered. But when he arrives in 1983, things are very, very different, as Sarah Connor is already a hardened woman, palling around with a Terminator sidekick played by Schwarzenegger. [caption id="attachment_430833" align="alignright" width="360"] Image via Empire[/caption] Speaking with Empire, The Governator spoke a bit about the nature of his reprisal: “The story has changed, so I am like a combination of the characters who you have seen in the past. »

Mario Kassar interview: Carolco, Bot, Hollywood

23 March 2015 4:28 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

We chat to legendary producer Mario Kassar about the return of Carolco, its forthcoming sci-fi film Bot, Hollywood studios, and more...

First Blood. Total Recall. Terminator 2. For a generation versed in the major action films of the 80s and 90s, the Carolco brand holds a special place in the memory. Its distinctive logo became a byword for bold, often brash movies starring some of the biggest names of the day - not least Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Founded by producers Andrew Vajna and Mario Kassar in the 1970s, Carolco went from indie outsider to a company with the size and clout of a Hollywood major; the studio became famous - and infamous in some quarters - for its headline-grabbing deals. (Legend has it that, when Arnie signed up to make Terminator 2: Judgment Day, he was given a $17m private jet.)

At the height of its powers, Carolco was making smaller-scale, »

Terminator Genisys graces Empire cover, new images arrive online

21 March 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

As the marketing campaign begins to gather pace, the cover of the May issue of Empire (via Reddit) has given us another look at Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 in this summer’s Terminator Genisys

Schwarzenegger, with most of his skin “lost” to show his machine endo-skeleton below, is joined on the new issue’s cover by the Emilia Clarke’s (Game of Thrones) Sarah Connor, who looks more like Connor in T2 than the shy girl of the first film. In addition, some new photos from the film have been unveiled, which includes the first image of Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), who joins the cast as Detective O’Brien, a cop who has apparently been investigating Sarah Connor since she was young…

'Terminator Genisys' Has a Different Take on Kyle Reese

19 March 2015 7:44 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Terminator Genisys is shaping up to be one of this summer's biggest blockbusters, with Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the Terminator franchise as his iconic T-800 cyborg, although much has changed in this version. Much like the original Terminator, military leader John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to the year 1984 to protect his mother Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), although nothing is quite what he expects. Sarah has actually been raised by an "aging" T-800 cyborg known as The Guardian for several years, as Kyle finds himself with a new mission, to reset the future. Jai Courtney has recently been doing press for The Divergent Series: Insurgent, in theaters tomorrow, and during an interview with Hero Complex, the actor revealed he didn't pay any attention to Michael Biehn's original portrayal of Kyle Reese in The Terminator, because this character has changed quite a bit.

"To be honest ... I don't pay any attention, »

Jai Courtney: 'Terminator: Genisys' Will Have 'Gentle Nods' to James Cameron's Films

19 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Jai Courtney is the new Kyle Reese, opposite Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger (he always said he'd be back!) as The Terminator in "Terminator: Genisys." The movie opens July 1, and Jai just talked to Variety about how he booked the role and how different "Genisys" is from the "Terminator" story of the 1984 original.

"It's not a reboot or a sequel or a prequel," Jai told Variety. "It stands alone. We're introduced to a world that we've seen before. However, when Reese is sent back to save Sarah Connor, something has happened in the process sand everything has changed. All the information he has for the mission and the task at hand is different. Therefore, things have been reset and that's where we move forward from. That's about all I can say."

It's like the alternate 1985 of "Back to the Future II" (but hopefully without rich Biff). Jai »

Friday The 13th TV Series Is Going For The Meta Angle

16 March 2015 12:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The days of a movie franchise merely spawning an endless stream of big screen sequels, prequels, side-quels, and other quirky spinoff varietals is long gone. In the case of Friday The 13th, the kitschy ’80s slasher, it’s not only slated for another theatrical feature but a small screen version is also in the pipeline.

Announced last April, the TV series is under the care of franchise creator Sean Cunningham. Cunningham’s ambitious goals for the show are to re-imagine the series’ flagship villain Jason Voorhees across many time periods. Lucky for him, one of two writers attached – Bill Basso – worked on the Terminator series, albeit as a special effects guru on T2. So, how might that temporal narrative device be explored on the show? Simple. It’s going meta.

Cunningham recently put it an appearance at the Monster Mania convention in New Jersey, at which he offered an update on the show. »

Director Niell Blomkamp’s new sci-fi epic Chappie opened this weekend. The film tells the story of a robot who is given artificial intelligence by his inventor, but he must learn the ways of the world just like a child. However, his innocent mind is being molded by gangsters and violent criminals.

Photos: 'Pacific Rim' and 7 Giant Robot/Monster Mashes

It’s still to be seen if Chappie will go down as a classic in the robot sci-fi genre, but if it whetted your appetite for artificial intelligence movies and android action scenes, here are nine of the best robotic heroes and nine of the craziest robotic villains in cinematic history.


9. Gigolo Joe from A.I.: Artificial Intelligence (2001)
