The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'

16 April 2014 10:12 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

The Terminator came out in 1984. Terminator 2: Judgment Day arrived seven years later. In the interim, Arnold Schwarzenegger became a new kind of action megastar, headlining a string of era-defining beefcake blockbusters. Commando, Predator, The Running Man, and Total Recall: The very titles echo down through history, dripping with gunsmoke and bicep sweat. But that era was coming to an end. The ’80s were over. Always a savvy operator, Schwarzenegger was already planning his pivot: Twins and Kindergarten Cop offered a kinder, gentler Arnold. (He loves kids! He loves De Vito!)

And so the essential twist that led to »

Terminator: Genesis – 10 Things You Need To Know

14 April 2014 5:58 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Despite the fact that the last two movies in the ever-expanding canon were of the middling and downright terrible varieties, The Terminator franchise remains one of the most beloved and most revered in cinematic history, mostly thanks to those movies written and directed by James Cameron. Yes, The Terminator and its follow-up, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, are renowned for their groundbreaking special effects, memorable characters, ingenious sci-fi plottings and – of course – Arnold Schwarzenegger in the role that made him super famous all over the world.

Despite the fact that only 50% of the movies in the Terminator series are actually good, though, the legacy of this series is yet to diminish, and its reputation refuses to die. Though it’s true that Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines failed to live up to the cinematic genius that was Terminator 2, it also wasn’t a total disaster… it just didn’t feel »

'Ant-Man' Picks Up Marvel One-Shot Star Matt Gerald as a Bad Guy

7 April 2014 2:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Now that Captain America: The Winter Soldier is in theaters, people who caught the Marvel sequel already are looking forward to the next few films in their cinematic universe. After all, the first credits scene (yes, there's two) teases a couple new characters in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, so that's pretty exciting. But after our heroes assemble for another battle to save the world, we have Phase Three kicking off with Ant-Man from director Edgar Wright in the same year. Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas are leading the film as two different versions of the hero, and Deadline reports Matt Gerald will play a bad guy. Read on! You may not recognize that name, but Gerald (who can also be seen in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Avatar, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and Escape Plan) recently appeared in the Marvel One-Shot All Hail the King, which focused on Ben Kingsley »

Marvel's 'Ant-Man' Finds a Villain in Matt Gerald (Photo)

7 April 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Marvel is keeping its next villain all in the family.

After starring in the Marvel One-Shot "All Hail the King" alongside Ben Kingsley, actor Matt Gerald is set to join "Ant-Man" as an unidentified antagonist. It's unclear if he'll reprise his "King" role of White Power Dave; Deadline reports he'll play simply "one of the bad guys."

Gerald's previous, non-Marvel credits include roles as tough guys in films including "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines," "Avatar," "G.I. Joe: Retaliation," and "Escape Plan." He'll next be seen in the thriller "Solace," which stars Colin Farrell and Anthony Hopkins.

Along with Gerald, "Ant-Man"'s eclectic cast includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Envangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, and Patrick Wilson. The flick is directed by Edgar Wright, from a script by Wright and Joe Cornish.

"Ant-Man" is set to debut July 17, 2015.

Matt Gerald Added To Ant-Man

6 April 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Despite a quick trip back to the UK to accept an Empire award, Edgar Wright is still on espresso-fuelled schedule to make Ant-Man, his take on the often insect-sized Marvel superhero. Casting confirmations and one or two rumours have floated in the last few months, but Deadline has it on good authority that Matt Gerald will be joining the other recruits.Though many stories have described him as a near unknown, it’s not for want of trying in his career. He’s appeared in some hugely successful movies including Avatar, Escape Plan, Choke, Faster, G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines. While he’s often played tough police officers and soldiers, it seems the Marvel Cinematic Universe prefers him on the other side of the law. He was White Power Dave in the superb Iron Man 3 One-Shot follow-up All Hail The King (which appears on »

30 Funniest Movie Bloopers

3 April 2014 4:10 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Everybody loves movie outtakes and bloopers. Maybe it’s because they humanize the stars we’ve chosen to exalt, painting them in a light where they’re really no different from us. On the other hand, maybe it’s just because they’re funny. Either way, “gag reels” are a staple of DVD and Blu-Ray releases, and are likely to remain that way for the foreseeable future.

Here we’ve scoured hours of footage online to find thirty of the absolute funniest blunders, jokes, and plain old crack-ups in filming history. Sure, they caused the director to yell for another take (or maybe even break from filming for the day), but they were still entertaining enough to commit to immortality. They’ll live on as long as the films we’ve loved and lamented.

As always, the “comments” space is there for you. Think we missed something, or gave a »

"Terminator: Genesis" Updates

26 March 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed spoiler details about "Terminator: Genesis", the prepping first feature in a new stand-alone trilogy:

"The way that the character is written, it's a machine underneath," Schwarzenegger said. 

"It's this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator's flesh ages, just like any other human being's flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages."

"Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800."  

"And then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets ahold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie..." 

Terminator: Genesis opens June 26, 2015 in a stand-alone trilogy, acknowledging the films of director James Cameron, creator of the 'Terminator' universe with a linking story arc, starring Schwarzenegger, "Game Of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke as freedom fighter 'Sarah Connor' and »

How Can Old Man Schwarzenegger Star in 'Terminator: Genesis'c

25 March 2014 12:54 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

If you were wondering how Arnold Schwarzenegger would fit into the upcoming Terminator: Genesis considering he's 11 years older than he was when he last starred in Jonathan Mostow's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Well, the answer is simple, a Terminator's skin ages. Speaking with MTV, Schwarzenegger commented on his character saying, "The way that the character is written, it's a machine underneath. It's this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator's flesh ages, just like any other human being's flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages." In addition to this news, Schwarzenegger spoke of the film's plot saying, "Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800, and then there's what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets hold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie. »

10 Awful Endings That Screwed Great Movies (And What Should Have Happened Instead)

11 March 2014 6:40 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

The ending of any film, like a TV show, has to leave you satisfied, without too many unanswered questions. You don’t want to feel that you have wasted hours (or in the case of television shows, years) of your life. Get it right and you’ll remember everything that was great about the film. Get it wrong and the chances are you’ll only remember that bad final scene.

Sometimes a great ending can elevate a film. The ending of Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines was great because we didn’t see it coming. It turned the film from a not-as-good rehash of Terminator 2: Judgement Day into a tragic story where our heroes were unable to save mankind, despite all their efforts.

At the other end of the scale are terrible endings that ruin great films. There’s nothing more unsatisfying then enjoying a film »

Jai Courtney Talks ‘Terminator: Genesis’

10 March 2014 2:15 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The world collectively rolled their eyes when it was announced that one of the most famous franchises in history would be ‘rebooted’ in 2015. Terminator is one of the most iconic films of all time and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day, is probably one of the only sequels to outmatch its outstanding predecessor in almost every way. The two subsequent sequels that followed were less than spectacular to say the least…and so here we are with a newly minted Terminator series due in a mere year and a half, widely rumoured to be titled Terminator: Genesis.

Ordinarily I would beg for Hollywood to leave this franchise alone after the terrible Terminator 3: Rise Of The MacHines and Terminator: Salvation, however this new film will see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. The chance to see The Terminator return for potentially the last time is definitely a tantalising one, »

The rise and fall of Carolco

10 March 2014 4:12 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 11 Mar 2014 - 05:39

In the late 80s, Carolco was one of the biggest studios in Hollywood, but by 1995, it was gone. Ryan charts its dramatic rise and fall...

Paul Verhoeven is not a happy man. It's 1994, and the Dutch director of (among other things) RoboCop and Total Recall is in a pivotal meeting with executives at Carolco Pictures. They're in the boardroom to discuss Crusade: a lavish, $100m historical drama described as Spartacus meets Conan.

With a script by Walon Green (The Wild Bunch, WarGames), and a cast headed up by Arnold Schwarzenegger, it sounds like the kind of star-filled, opulent film Carolco Pictures is famous for making. The supporting cast includes Jennifer Connelly and Robert Duvall. The script is vibrant and brash. There are massive sets being built in rural Spain. But privately, Carolco's bosses are anxious; they have another hugely expensive project in the works »

"Terminator: Genesis" Updates

5 March 2014 4:39 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

"Terminator: Genesis" the first new film in a stand-alone trilogy, has finalized its main cast and will reportedly acknowledge the films of director James Cameron, creator of the 'Terminator' universe with a linking story arc:

According to new reports, "Terminator: Genesis" will see characters time-traveling and finding themselves moving through the events of "The Terminator" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day". There will also reportedly be a third time period outside of those films, set in the future and constituting a 'home base' for some of the characters.

"We start filming in April (2014) and it will be a four-and-a-half month long shoot,", said 'Terminator' actor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

"Most of it will be done in New Orleans, with some filming in San Francisco and maybe a little in La. The last 'Terminator' was when I was Governor. So I couldn't be in that movie, but now »

30 Movies Turning 30 in 2014

1 March 2014 9:59 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There's always a time and place for nostalgia, but when it comes to movies from the 1980s, it goes beyond that. Throughout the decade, we hit cinematic milestone after cinematic milestone, with franchises being born that still resonate and fuel the box office today, some three decades removed. We can look at 2014 and see some good movies on the horizon. But when we look back at a year like 1984, its breathtaking to see how many seminal pieces of pop culture were born into existence. 1982 is sometimes called the greatest year for genre movies of all time, with an eye on science fiction. But 1984 goes maybe a step beyond that. These 12 months were jam packed with truly timeless classics. You may be awestruck staring at what came exactly 30 years ago. Nothing has quite topped it for sheer year-round, non-stop entertainment. These are 30 great movies that are turning 30 in 2014!

The top 22 haunting endings to modern movies

14 February 2014 5:57 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Simon Brew Ryan Lambie 17 Feb 2014 - 06:24

Whether they're bleak, shocking or sad, the endings to these 22 movies have haunted us for years...

Warning: There are spoilers to the endings for every film we talk about in this article. So if you don't want to know an ending for a film, then don't read that entry.

It's probably best to start by talking about what this article isn't. It's not a list of the best movie endings, the best twists, the most depressing endings or anything like that. Instead, we're focusing here on the endings that seeped into our brain and stayed there for some time after we'd seen the film. The endings that provoke in an interesting way, and haunt you for days afterwards.

As such, whilst not every ending we're going to talk about here is a flat out classic - although lots of them are »
