Simon Brew Feb 22, 2018

Filming on Terminator 6 is pushed back slightly, but is still expected to start in the spring...

The new film, and the latest reboot, in the Terminator series is getting ready to film, it seems.

This is the movie that brings back Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, with James Cameron back involved too on creative duties. Cameron won’t be directing (he's got a lot of Avatar films to make, after all), but Deadpool’s Tim Miller will be.

The movie is effectively going to ignore the stories of the films post-Terminator 2, and it’s been casting the role of one of the young leads, a character by the name of Dani Ramos. That search is apparently ongoing,

In Defense Of: “Spider-Man 3” (2007)

One universal truth in the world of cinema is that sequels will always be a tough nut to crack. Though there have been a handful of follow-ups that have arguably surpassed their cinematic originals — Terminator 2, The Empire Strikes Back and Aliens spring to mind — Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 can also be added to the list as it too helped buck the ‘inferior sequel’ archetype by delivering a bonafide classic in the superhero sub-genre.

‘But we’re here to talk about Spider-Man 3!’ I hear you shouting. Well, here’s the thing: I can safely say that Raimi’s third, and final chapter, won’t be joining the pantheons of greatest sequels of all-time, unlike its immediate predecessor. That said, I do believe that Spider-Man 3 deserves some love, too.

On that note, come join us as we take a look back at Raimi’s oft-maligned third entry into Marvel’s beloved web-slinging series.

10 Terminator 2 Facts You Never Knew

10 Terminator 2 Facts You Never Knew
"Have you seen this boy?" In the wake of success for The Terminator, it was hard to imagine how a sequel could up the ante. Yet Terminator 2: Judgment Day did exactly that, with a battle hardened super-ripped Sarah Connor, a rebellious adolescent John, a brand new liquid metal Terminator and an Arnold model programmed to do good. Here we take a look at 10 things you never knew about Terminator 2.

To kill or not to kill.

Arnold originally met with the team behind The Terminator about the role of Kyle Reese. Arnold was looking for heroic leading man roles, not villainous killing machines, but James Cameron coaxed him into playing the T-800 by assuring him that The Terminator would be such a cool character, audiences would root for him. In a fun twist of fate, by the time the sequel rolled around, Arnold had the opposite concern: he was

How Blade Runner 2049 expands on its predecessor

Ryan Lambie Feb 7, 2018

With only mild spoilers, we look at the key way in which Blade Runner 2049 expands on Ridley Scott's 1982 classic...

Lieutenant Joshi: “You've been getting on fine without one.”

K: “What's that, ma'am?”

Lieutenant Joshi: “A soul.”

Bigger, louder, more violent: sequels almost seem duty-bound to one-up what came before. Unfortunately, history's also littered with film sequels that, for all their sound and fury, soon slip from memory. Even if they deliver on the higher bodycount or more over-the-top action, they often lose the character and storytelling of their predecessors. Jaws and RoboCop are examples of classic movies with less than stellar sequels. Blade Runner 2049, on the other hand, arguably ranks alongside Terminator 2, Aliens and Mad Max: Fury Road on the list of best sequels ever made.

Blade Runner 2049 succeeded, in no small part, because of the specific way it expanded on the 1982 original.

New Face-Swap Tech Lets Nicolas Cage Star in Every Movie

New Face-Swap Tech Lets Nicolas Cage Star in Every Movie
Technology is really starting to get out of control and a new deep learning tech is pushing the boundaries of Nicolas Cage and his acting abilities. Like a lot of tech that is developed and fine-tuned over the years, this deep learning software was first used in the pornographic realm. People with way too much time on their hands take female celebrities and basically copy and paste their faces on to X-rated videos with shocking accuracy. And now, that very same technology is being used to put Nicholas Cage into any movie role.

Nicholas Cage is already one of the most famous memes and that popularity just received a huge boost, thanks to the deep learning software. People have been scanning a bunch of pictures of Cage's face into FakeApp, which then is able to map the actor's face to another face, imagining what it would look like through the deep learning technology.

Blade Runner 2049 and the art of making a perfect sequel

  • HeyUGuys
Author: Josh Wilding

There was a time when sequels were met with a great deal of trepidation but the success of superhero movies and other blockbusters has now made them something to anticipate and beg studios for on social media. The only ones now met with any sort of scepticism are those serving as follow-ups to classic or beloved movies many argue are best left alone.

Blade Runner was one of those movies and while talk persisted for years about a sequel, it never came to pass. That changed when Denis Villeneuve came on board with Ridley Scott for Blade Runner 2049 and the more we heard about the movie, the clearer it became that it was going to be something special.

Like the first instalment, the sequel required multiple viewings, and was unfairly criticised for a relatively long runtime or how much mystery it was shrouded in. With the

The Nuclear Explosion Scene in Terminator 2 Still Haunts Me After More Than 20 Years

A beautiful, bright, sunny day on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Children frolic and delight at a picturesque playground.

True Lies Stuntman Dropped by Agency After Eliza Dushku Allegations

True Lies Stuntman Dropped by Agency After Eliza Dushku Allegations
Just days after Eliza Dushku opened up and accused True Lies stunt coordinator Joel Kramer of sexual assault, his agency has dropped him. The Worldwide Production Agency released a statement this morning revealing they have parted ways with the stunt coordinator after the allegations surfaced. Take a look at Wpa's brief statement below from the agency's president and general counsel Richard Caleel.

"Wpa has elected to part ways with Joel Kramer based on the allegations of misconduct now being reported. Such behavior is unacceptable and entirely at odds with the the standards of conduct we demand of ourselves, and expect from our clients."

While Joel Kramer has denied these claims, first revealed by Eliza Dushku on a lengthy Facebook post, they have since been backed up by her mother, brother, her legal guardian on the set, and her former agent. Director James Cameron also showed his support for the actress,

Christian Bale Talks About How Things Went From Bad to Worse on Terminator: Salvation

Terminator: Salvation definitely wasn't Christian Bale's finest moment. The movie started out with a decent concept but was executed terribly by director McG. On top of the mediocre level of filmmaking, it was also the moment where Bale completely blew up at one of the crew members and started yelling at him and the crew. Like I said, this wasn't Bale's finest moment. If you want a little reminder of that, you can listen to it here.

During a recent interview with The Playlist, Bale opened up about his time working on Terminator: Salvation and his "enormous regrets". Not only did he talk about how the film project went from bad to worse, but he also reflected on his foul-mouthed tirade. Things just didn't pan out for the film the way he was hoping:

"I said no three times. I thought that the franchise…I went ‘Nah, there’s no story there.

Terminator: Salvation: Christian Bale on his regrets

Simon Brew Jan 10, 2018

Christian Bale on why he took on Terminator: Salvation, and what went wrong...

If all had gone to plan, the fourth Terminator movie, Terminator: Salvation, would have kickstarted a fresh trilogy. Directed by McG and starring Christian Bale and Sam Worthington, things did not go to plan however. If anything, the film remained more notable for Bale’s verbal attack on director of photography Shane Hurlbut, that was recorded and released online.

Bale's been looking back on Terminator: Salvation in a new interview with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, and sharing some of his regrets.

Admitting that he first said no to appearing in the film three times before accepting, Bale recalled that “it was an unfortunate series of events involving the writers’ strike, involving Jonah Nolan, who was able to come on, and really start to write a wonderful script, but then got called away for

Christian Bale Initially Turned Down Terminator Salvation Three Times; Recalls “Enormous Regrets” Over On-Set Outburst

When Terminator Salvation booted online eight years ago, McG’s star-studded reboot (Bryce Dallas Howard! Michael Ironside! Helena Bonham Carter!) was held up as the near-perfect platform on which Christian Bale could begin his transition away from Christopher Nolan’s beloved Batman series.

After all, much like Genisys, Salvation was designed to spawn a whole new trilogy of movies with Bale’s John Connor at its core, but the end product was a mishmash of bad ideas and weak storytelling, leading the studio to haul the Terminator offline for the foreseeable future.

And though many consider Terminator Salvation to be the runt of the litter – worse than even Rise of the Machines – Christian Bale offered a candid retrospective on the doomed reboot while appearing on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast (via The Playlist):

I said no three times. I thought that the franchise…I went ‘Nah, there’s no story there.

Why Gal Gadot Refused to Respond to James Cameron's Wonder Woman Dis

Why Gal Gadot Refused to Respond to James Cameron's Wonder Woman Dis
James Cameron was pretty vocal about the success of Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman, especially with his criticisms of the movie. Jenkins immediately fired off a response to the Avatar director, but Gal Gadot remained silent, choosing not to get into it with the Cameron. However, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gadot reveals her reasoning behind not responding to the negativity and it's perfect. Wonder Woman ended the year as the third highest grossing movie of 2017 with plenty of critical accolades for Patty Jenkins, Gal Gadot, and DC, which has led to criticism from many different places. But James Cameron's questioning the success of the movie was oddly specific.

James Cameron didn't understand all of the supposed hype surrounding Wonder Woman because he felt that the movie was a step "backwards" for women while also saying that it "objectified an icon" because of Gal Gadot's looks. Instead, he

Cinema’s Damaged Heroine

Sarah Myles on cinema’s damaged heroine…

“Badass.”

As a word, it has become synonymous with determined women in movies. Why? Because that is how critics routinely describe them.

“Black Widow gets extra bad-ass in this Avengers 2 trailer,” said Rob Bricken of i09.

In Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron plays “a career badass who enjoys both the job and the perks with equal enthusiasm,” according to J. Hurtado of Screen Anarchy.

Kaya Payseno of Bust tells us that “Badass women star in a feminist western,” while reviewing The Keeping Room.

According to Wendy Ide of The Guardian, Wonder Woman is “A gloriously badass breath of fresh air.”

From whence does this strangely limited vocabulary come? How have we reached a point where a critic can use the word ‘badass,’ and we almost all picture exactly the same thing: a mostly solitary woman, in figure hugging/revealing costumes, scowling and being violent?

The 25 Best Sci-Fi Films of the 90s

In the 1990s, the sci-fi genre reached new heights. With the advent of CG-character technology that was revolutionized in Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Jurassic Park, the tools available for filmmaking increased exponentially. The impossible was now possible, and ideas that were once non-viable in the feature film format were now able to be realized. Of course technology is only a tool—it can get you so far, but it’s story and character that determine whether a film will stand the test of time. But master filmmakers like James Cameron, Steven Spielberg, Luc Besson, and The …
