"It Sucked": Arnold Schwarzenegger Makes His Feelings About 'Terminator Salvation' Crystal Clear

6 April 2015 6:30 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Let's face it, once James Cameron left "The Terminator" franchise, the series was never the same. "Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines" was a forgettable retread, while the non-Arnie "Terminator Salvation" is mostly remembered for that time Christian Bale lost his shit on set, and also for not being very good. Those two movies are a big reason why there is much trepidation about "Terminator Genisys," even with Ahnuld returning and Cameron being somewhat tangentially involved in conversations about the project early on (as far back as when Justin Lin was going to direct, plus he also explained last fall how a Terminator could age). But what does the actor who has lived and breathed the franchise for decades think about each installment? Well, he made his feelings very clear on a recent "Good Morning America" segment. "I think the three that I was in, they all had their little personalities and interesting storylines, »

Arnold Schwarzenegger On 'Terminator Salvation', "It Sucked"

5 April 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I can't say I'm expecting much from Terminator Genisys. Then again, it could merely be a case of Paramount having no clue what they're doing when it comes to cutting the trailers and deciding what pictures should be released. That's me being a "the glass is maybe half-full" kind of guy. As for the previous Terminator films, I enjoy the first two well enough and while I haven't seen Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines in about nine years, I didn't entirely hate it. However, Terminator Salvation was a complete and utter mess, or, as I wrote in my review six years ago, "Terminator Salvation is a big dull, predictable dud that counts on monotonous action sequences far too often, while making characters and story secondary." It appears Arnold Schwarzenegger is no fan either. When asked what he believes to be the best Terminator film to date he doesn't even »

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. »

Celebrating cinema's 15 less famous killer robots

30 March 2015 10:51 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Never mind The Terminator and Ed-209, what about Eve, Hector or Warbeast? Here's a pick of 15 less famous killer robots from the movies...

"They say Zapp Brannigan single-handedly saved the Octillion system from a horde of rampaging killbots!" enthused Leela in classic the Futurama episode, Love's Labour's Lost In Space.

It was, reflected the alcoholic, cigar-smoking robot Bender, "A grim day for Robotkind", before adding as an afterthought, "Eh, but we can always build more killbots."

Killer robots are a longstanding staple of science fiction cinema, and if we were to compile the list of the best and most celebrated, it would probably read pretty much like everyone else's - The Terminator, 2001: A Space Odyssey and the Sentinels from X-Men: Days Of Future Past would all get a mention.

But what about the less famous killer robots from film history - the ones that have been largely eclipsed by »

Terminator Genisys Spot Has Tons Of New Action Footage, More Jk Simmons

27 March 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Were you a little bit disappointed by the first Terminator Genisys trailer? If so, then Jk Simmons is here to turn your frown upside down, because he has stolen the first UK television spot for the upcoming blockbuster. Well, it also helps that there is tons of new action scenes in the clip, too. You check out the latest footage for Terminator Genisys below. It.s a start. The plethora of winks and nods to the James Cameron.s Terminator films in the first Genisys trailers hinted that it would make the same mistakes as Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines and Terminator Salvation. And while I.m not completely satisfied that won.t still be the case, at least we were able to get a deeper sense of the mood and characters with this new minute-long Genisys spot.  It certainly makes it easier to do that when you unleash »

"Terminator Genisys" Motion Poster, Plot Points

25 March 2015 11:02 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Motion posters are often fairly dull affairs. Not this one, the new 'living one-sheet' for "Terminator Genisys" will literally shoot you in the face as it shows an aged Arnold Schwarzenegger getting his skinned flamed off and turning his rifle's attention towards you. Yes you, right there, reading this.

The poster comes as numerous set visit reports have hit the Net in the past few hours that clear up some details about the film's plot and what we might expect. Naturally this means some Spoilers Ahead so you've been warned.

As indicated this is the first film of a new and completely standalone trilogy. The producers have broken down the story for the three films prior to production, which allows for foreshadowing and details that are only possible in a longer story unfolding over a trilogy.

Like the Abrams "Trek" reboot, this follows a divergent timeline that goes off in a very different direction, »

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. »

'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, »

Carolco announces sci-fi action film, Bot

16 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Exclusive: Carolco producer Mario Kassar talks to us about his forthcoming sci-fi action film, Bot. Here are the first details.

In its 80s and 90s heyday, Carolco and its studio co-founder Mario Kassar specialised in such larger-than-life blockbusters as Rambo: First Blood Part II, Total Recall and Terminator 2.

Twenty years on, and the Carolco brand has been revived by Kassar and new CEO Alex Bafer, with one of its first projects being a new incarnation of the fearsome horror-drama, Audition. Beyond that, Bafer also hinted at something more akin to Carolco's sci-fi action films of old; it is, he said, "a Terminator-type sci-fi summer blockbuster."

That film now has a name: it's called Bot, and it's the first in a potential trilogy of movies penned by Tedi Sarafian - the story writer behind, among other things, 2003's Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines.

'Terminator: Genisys' Script Praised; Plot Details Leaked

18 February 2015 5:18 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the biggest movies vying for your box office dollar this summer is Terminator Genisys, which is starting to get more positive buzz swirling around it following the first trailer released in December and the Super Bowl trailer that debuted just a few days before the big game. Of course, there are still plenty of fans who are on the fence about director Alan Taylor's sequel/reboot, but perhaps two new reviews of the screenplay from The Arnold Fans could sway the doubters. Both of these script reviews from fans named Greg and Jay provide more information in terms of what was previously seen in the trailer and revealed in the extensive Entertainment Weekly piece from October that offered plenty of plot details.

The first reviewer, Greg, describes Terminator Genisys as, "three action packed movies in one," where fans will finally get to see the Future Wars, which »

Brand New ‘Terminator Genisys’ Image And Super Bowl Spot

30 January 2015 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

James Cameron’s first two instalments in the Terminator franchise were landmark achievements, that have gone down as two of the greatest masterpieces in cinema history. Terminator 3: Rise Of The MacHines diluted that reputation slightly with a poorly written script, that undermined much of the hard work from the first two entries. Finally, Terminator: Salvation was an absolute mess, which garnered more attention from the fact that it’s main star had a minor lapse in temperament. This is also forgetting the fact that the film was shot without the inclusion of Arnold Schwarzenegger, before adding a strange CGI replacement in post-production.

Suffice to say, the upcoming Terminator Genesys has quite a lot riding on it. Although, bringing back The Terminator is certainly a good start in regards to winning back the audiences trust in the franchise.  Check out the new poster and spot below:

The 10 Best Films Of 2003

22 January 2015 9:21 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

With 2015 upon us, we figured it was a good time to look back on the movies the millennium has brought us. And so we've dug into the archives and are re-running our Best of the 2000s pieces, from way back in 2009 when the Playlist was a little Blogspot site held together with tape and string. Each list runs down the top 10 films of each year (it's possible that, half-a-decade on, we'd put them in a different order and even change some of the movies, but we wanted to preserve the original pieces untouched as far as possible). Check out 2000, 2001 and 2002 if you missed them, and today we continue with 2002. The original piece follows below, and thanks to staffers past and present who contributed. If sequels were the name of the game in 2002, things didn't change much in '03, as franchises began to curdle with disappointing new installments like "The Matrix Reloaded, »

21 Burning Questions for 2015: ‘Star Wars’ or ‘Avengers’? Can Johnny Depp, J. Lo Break Slump? Where’s M. Night?

7 January 2015 6:57 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

With movies from blockbuster franchises like “Star Wars,” “The Avengers” and James Bond rolling out, industry insiders and analysts say the 2015 box office is a good bet to be the biggest in history.

Joining the chorus hailing this year’s prospects for the exhibition sector and the movie biz in general is B. Riley analyst Eric Wold.

“After declining by 5.2 percent in 2014, the domestic box office should rebound sharply by 7-8 percent in 2015 and set a new annual record above $11 billion,” Wold said, adding that he expected Imax and 3-D to be a driving force.

10 Things You Need To Know About Terminator: Genisys

3 January 2015 3:20 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

There’s nary a film franchise as iconic yet as beleaguered as the Terminator franchise over the past decade or so. After the initial two films became a huge part of popular culture, with everything from the music to star Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous “I’ll be back” quote becoming ingrained in our collective consciousness, the franchise strayed from the course, veering into B-movie territory with Jonathan Mostow’s Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines, struggling to portray the future war fans wanted in McG’s Terminator: Salvation, and having just mild success with the cancelled-too-soon Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on the small screen.

In short, nothing has come close to the first two films and director James Cameron’s vision. With Cameron busy working on two or three Avatar sequels when not skiing down mountains of money, and Arnold coming out of retirement, struggling at the box office, »
