On seeing 'The Terminator' for the first time: They don't make 'em like they used to

24 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

This is what I thought I knew about The Terminator—released 30 years ago this weekend—before I watched it for the first time a few nights ago: - The title character is played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. - He's a robot who's been sent back in time to do... something. - He's a bad guy. Except they keep making movies about him, so maybe he's a good guy. Or he starts as one, then becomes the other? Regardless, he is definitely either good or bad. Yep. That much I know. - Linda Hamilton plays Sarah Connor, a badass with great arms »

Watch 26 Epic Death Scenes, Picked By 26 Different Directors

24 October 2014 9:57 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In the many, many years that movie marketing has been around, we.ve seen everything from tie-in amusement park rides to Icee cups. But Drafthouse Films and Magnet Releasing have come up with the greatest promotional tool ever for their anthology horror ABCs of Death 2: they asked all 26 directors to name their favorite cinematic death scenes, and then put them all together in one explosive, disturbing and mildly depressing supercut! Check it out below, and be mindful of its highly Nsfw material. It.s kind of tough to just get on with your day after watching that kind of thing, at least without mentally picturing people.s heads exploding. But then, some of you probably did that already. There are some real surprises in there, with Nigerian director Lancelot Imasuen choosing Leonardo DiCaprio.s cold-water passing in Titanic of all deaths as his pick. I also feel like »

‘The Flash’ Preview: Meet Robbie Amell as Ronnie Raymond (Exclusive)

21 October 2014 9:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On “The Flash,” Grant Gustin’s titular hero isn’t the only character with special abilities, and in the Oct. 21 episode, we’ll meet another DC Comics icon: Robbie Amell’s Ronnie Raymond, aka one half of Firestorm — DC’s “Nuclear Man.” In the series, Ronnie is an engineer on Star Labs’ particle accelerator, the device that imbues Barry, Ronnie and many other bystanders with unforeseen powers after it malfunctions. He’s also the fiance of Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker), and this week’s episode will flash back (no pun intended) to the night when the accelerator exploded, supposedly killing Ronnie even as it gifted Barry with super speed.

Amell is no stranger to super powers — having headlined Greg Berlanti, Phil Klemmer and Julie Plec’s “Tomorrow People” for The CW last season — and it’s safe to say that heroics are in his genes, given that his cousin is “Arrow” star Stephen Amell. »

'Flash' Star Robbie Amell Shares First Firestorm Details

20 October 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fans of The Flash will get their first look at Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) in tomorrow night's episode "Things You Can't Outrun". The character is one half of Firestorm, with Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) portraying the other half. Before fans are introduced to Ronnie, Robbie Amell offers the first details about his character in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Firestorm isn't as big a name in the DC comic book universe. Amell reveals that he wasn't too familiar with the character before he landed the role.

"I knew of him and I knew a little, but I hadn't been a huge Firestorm fan. But I'm actually kind of glad that it happened that way because I got to be introduced to a new superhero. I got a care package from DC with a couple comics and a couple action figures. My mom went out to a comic book »

See David Warner as Freddy Krueger in Early Makeup Test Images

20 October 2014 8:34 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Robert Englund is celebrated by horror hounds for bringing to life the wicked wit and intimidating menace of Freddy Krueger in eight A Nightmare on Elm Street films and a TV series. But what may surprise some Elm Street strollers is that David Warner (The Omen) was originally cast in the role of the iconic killer, and we have a look at what Freddy would have looked like with Warner behind the scorched skin.

Originally considered to play Freddy Krueger, David Warner had to opt out of Wes Craven’s horror classic due to scheduling conflicts, but before he was out of the picture, early makeup tests were completed that show Warner as the dream invader.

David Warner has played a plethora of characters over the decades, including roles in The Omen (1976), Tron, In the Mouth of Madness, Titanic, and more recently portrayed Professor Abraham Van Helsing in Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. »

Crazy Hollywood Stories: That Time James Cameron Helped Rescue Guillermo del Toro's Dad from Kidnappers

17 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Friends for life, brothers from another mother, and dudes that make movies... James Cameron and Guillermo del Toro have been pals since the ‘90s. They met at a Fourth of July party. Del Toro eventually wound up living in Cameron’s guesthouse for a period of time, and following those days the men have traded opinions and advice regarding the other’s work. Cameron suggested the line in Cronos where Ron Perlman says, “Not my nose again!” Del Toro elaborates on their working relationship: “He’s helped with every one of my movies, except Mimic, where we were sequestered in Toronto and couldn’t show anyone. In Blade II, he gave me a few comments on the cut. I’ve been with him in the editing room for True Lies, Titanic, Avatar...

How James Cameron Saved Guillermo del Toro's Father From Mexican Kidnappers

14 October 2014 6:17 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

James Cameron.s reputation as one of the fiercest directors in movie history has been widely publicized, but Guillermo del Toro will always revere the infamous filmmaker after it was revealed that, like one of the heroes that are usually central figures in his films, the Titanic filmmaker saved his father from a perilous situation. Rather than featuring a T-800 or a hoard of Aliens though, this tale revolves around Mexican kidnappers instead. According to Uproxx, during the troubled production of Mimic, Guillermo del Toro learned that his father, Federico del Toro, had been kidnapped off the streets of his Mexican hometown, Guadalajara. Obviously this immediately overshadowed any problems he was having with his sci-fi horror. But there was another issue. Guillermo del Toro had put all of the money that he had into Mimic, and the rest of his family didn.t have anywhere near amount that was required »

'Titanic's Awful Alternate Ending Captures Online Attention All These Years Later

14 October 2014 12:29 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Despite being available on YouTube for almost four years now after accompanying the Blu-ray release, the alternate ending to James Cameron's Titanic has captured the attention of the online blogosphere. Seriously, just Google "titanic alternate ending" and you'll see just how many blogs 1.) are not only writing about the alternate ending, but 2.) exist and you didn't even know about it. amz asin="B000NQRE1E" size="small"What's funny are the blogs calling it the "newly released" alternate ending when the video itself says it was uploaded January 24, 2011. Nevertheless, if you somehow missed it already, here it is, along with the "Saturday Night Live" alternate ending, which gets a little more violent toward ol' Rose. As for details, apparently this was part of Cameron's assembly cut, though there are rumors Cameron created this ending for the studio, which wasn't happy with the theatrical cut as we all know it. »

Watch: Unintentionally Hilarious Alternate Ending To 'Titanic'

14 October 2014 7:29 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Director James Cameron has never had a problem with exotic alien planets, car chases, killer mercenaries from the future or anything of that sort. He’s inarguably one of the biggest and most successful directors of all time, having made some of the most lavish, spectacle-heavy blockbusters of the modern era (“Aliens,” “The Terminator,” “True Lies” and um, “Avatar”, just to name a few). It is instead small, intimate moments and honest-to-goodness human connection that he seems to have more trouble with (or perhaps less interest in). It’s a thought entertained by a segment of the American moviegoing public in 1997, when we all sat in a theatre at the end of “Titanic,” wondering why Rose (Kate Winslet) couldn’t just… scoot over a little bit to make room for her dying love Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) before he fell to the bottom of the freezing ocean deep, never to return. »

Titanic's Alternate Ending Is Just the Worst Thing Ever—Watch Now

9 October 2014 1:04 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Did you know that James Cameron shot an alternate ending to Titanic? Not regarding the part with the sinking and all the death (that still happened), but the one with current-day Rose (Gloria Stewart) throwing the Heart of the Ocean overboard with a cute little squeak? Yep, apparently James shot something else and now we know why it hasn't seen the light of day…until now. Apparently this is a bonus feature on the Titanic DVD, but the video is just now going viral because that's how the Internet works: in mysterious ways. It's a deep ocean of secrets, the Internet. Sorry. The point is that this alternate ending is terrible. Just terrible. It still has the same outcome—the necklace »

Titanic's Alternate Ending Might Be The Worst Thing You've Ever Seen

9 October 2014 7:51 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

James Cameron.s Titanic is a spectacular film with a sappy ending. Granted, bringing closure to a years-old love story presents challenges, particularly when Cameron allows one half of his passionate couple (played by Leonardo DiCaprio) to sink to the bottom of the ocean like the ship that housed their forbidden love. But did you know that the ending to Titanic could have been worse? Much, much worse. YouTube user Gus Tavo (chicken man?) uploaded this alternate Titanic ending years ago, though I can.t say I.ve ever seen the scenes in question play out. They need to be watched to be believed. They keep a few snippets of footage from James Cameron.s theatrical ending . like Kate Winslet.s Rose finding "The Heart of the Ocean" necklace in the pocket of the coat she.s wearing . but goes the extra mile to have Old Rose (Gloria Stuart) explain »

8 October 2014 3:54 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Here's something you didn't know you wanted, never asked for, and will certainly need to witness for yourself: the alternate ending of Titanic. Yes, James Cameron's glorious and heart-wrenching blockbuster almost had a completely different ending. You know how Titanic is so magical you can barely even go on? Well, this is not terribly magical, and I, for one, am really glad they stuck to the original ending. Let's just all be glad this is all a fever dream. »

Oscar Nominations Rare for Portrayals of the Same Character in the Same Film

6 October 2014 8:00 AM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Anjelica Oswald

Managing Editor

[Warning: Potential spoilers ahead for Interstellar.]

Only two times in Oscar history have there been Oscar nominations for two actors playing the same character in the same film. The first time this happened was in 1998 when Kate Winslet received a lead actress nomination for her portrayal of a young Rose in Titanic (1997) and Gloria Stuart received a supporting actress nomination for Old Rose. Winslet did it again in 2002 when she was nominated for her supporting role as Young Iris Murdoch in Iris (2001) and Judi Dench was nominated for her lead role.

More often than not, when there are multiple portrayals of a character in a film, there is a child actor and the adult who gets the more prominent role and the Oscar nomination, such as with Forrest Gump (1994). Tom Hanks won an Oscar for his portrayal of Forrest Gump, while Michael Conner Humphreys played Young Forrest.

7 movie marriages from hell: Inception, The Shining, more

4 October 2014 1:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

David Fincher's pitch-black new thriller Gone Girl is, among many other things, a compelling two-and-a-half-hour argument for staying single.

As was the case in Gillian Flynn's bestselling novel, the central soured marriage between Nick (Ben Affleck) and Amy (Rosamund Pike) only grows more unsettling the more you discover about both parties, the seemingly perfect veneer peeling back inch by inch to reveal festering dysfunction.

We can never get enough festering dysfunction over at Digital Spy, so here are seven more of the big screen's most shining examples of marital strife.

1. George and Martha (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?)

The crumbling couple that arguably inspired every other on this list. Edward Albee created the archetypal marriage in spectacular meltdown in his blistering 1962 play, and real-life sparring lovers Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor bring George and Martha vividly to life on the big screen.

Kate Winslet On the Cover of Marie Claire-Explains Why she and Leonardo Dicaprio Never Dated Each Other

3 October 2014 1:52 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio make better friends than lovers.

The actors, who co-starred in 1997's Titanic and 2008's Revolutionary Road, have always been close. In fact, DiCaprio gave the actress away when she married Ned Rocknroll in 2012. "I think the reason that friendship works is because there was never any romantic thing," Winslet says in Marie Claire U.K.'s November issue. "It's so disappointing for people to hear that, because in the soap opera of the Kate and Leo story we fell in love at first sight and had a million snogs, but actually we never did. He always saw me as one of the boys; I've never really been a girly-girl. We needed each other to lean on because we were very young and working all kinds of crazy bloody hours and it was a shock to the system.'"

Both actors will be over the hill before long, »
