Christian Bale often oscillates between two acting modes. First, there's Christian Bale the big-screen populist, who springs up in the likes of "Terminator Salvation" and the three Christopher Nolan-directed Batman movies with cocksure swagger and something wounded underneath. Then there's Christian Bale the serious actor, who starves himself for "The Machinist" and "Rescue Dawn" and makes all other actors feel like they simply aren't doing enough earnest morphing for their roles.
Both of those modes are on display in "Out of the Furnace," the new film from co-writer/director Scott Cooper, whose last film, "Crazy Heart," won Jeff Bridges a long-deserved Oscar. Bale is clearly gunning for the same recognition here (more on that in a minute) as a steelworker who seeks to untangle a mystery involving his Iraq War veteran brother (Casey Affleck, wonderful as always), looking into the iffy hills of the Appalachian backwoods to find answers. »

With Arnold Schwarzenegger set to reprise his role as the titular Terminator in Paramount's 2015 reboot of the mega-popular franchise, it's looking like the series may be able to find its way back on track after all. But who will fill out the other iconic roles? That's what we're here to talk about today.
As reported by Deadline, "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke (pictured) and The Spectacular Now's Brie Larson are still being considered for the role of Sarah Connor. Paramount and director Alan Taylor are apparently looking closely at both actresses, who have tested for producers and are the current frontrunners.
The plan is to cast the Sarah Connor role before Kyle Reese and John Connor, both of whom will be characters in the new film.
Stay tuned for more details about this developing story!
Set for a July 2015 release, the latest Terminator will be the fifth installment of the storied movie series, »

"Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke and "21 Jump Street" actress Brie Larson are said to be the two names left that are vying for the lead role of a young Sarah Connor in the upcoming "Terminator" reboot at Annapurna Pictures.
Alan Taylor ("Thor: The Dark World") is onboard to direct the project, and Paramount and Taylor are reportedly aiming to cast the Sarah Connor role before locking down the John Connor and Kyle Reese roles.
Clarke is said to currently be the front runner, and has had experience working with Taylor on HBO's "Game of Thrones". At last report Tom Hardy was being eyed to play human resistance leader John Connor.
Both casting possibilities have a nice simpatico - Clarke's Thrones co-star Lena Headey played Sarah Connor in the "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" TV series, while Hardy's "The Dark Knight Rises" co-star Christian Bale played John Connor in "Terminator Salvation »

Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle #1
Writer: J. Michael Straczynski
Art: Pete Woods
Colours: Matthew Wilson
Lettering: Nate Piekos of Blambot
Publisher: Mike Richardson for Dark Horse Comics
The Terminator franchise has been wildly successful for 29 years. While the movie series may have one or two clunkers– you know which ones they are, the franchise as a whole has withstood the test of time. Thanks to a rabid fan base, an endless well of material to pool from and a message that hits closer and closer to home with every iOS update, its pretty easy to see why. But something very interesting is happening over at Dark Horse Comics.

With a new entry in The Terminator series on its way, fans are pretty anxious to see their beloved franchise get back on track and back to business. Some of them even have some pretty neat ideas on just whom Arnie should do battle with in the next entry in the franchise.
Case in point: a new Facebook petition to get Jean-Claude Van Damme a role in the new Terminator film! In retrospect, this could actually work. Not the petition maybe, but if you think about it, Van Damme plays great bad guys, and he's proved that he still has it. Honestly, we're all for this.
Jcvd himself caught wind of this movement and released the following response. "This is amazing! Thanks to the wonderful fan group behind this nice page. The fan-made CGI galleries you have created are incredible. Answering your questions, I would definitely love to join The Terminator franchise with Mr. »

Christian Bale has an intensity that seeps into performances which leave fans awestruck. His passion for his craft, however, does not include self-promotion. With a pair of compelling perfs to tubthump, the excruciatingly private star now has to do his least favorite thing: face the media.
Christian Bale is the reluctant movie star.
Despite being regarded as one of the best actors of his generation, the enigmatic 39-year-old Brit has no interest in fame. His dashing, tall, dark and handsome looks are often concealed by the unattractive physical appearances and appurtenances of the characters he portrays. In an era when many of his contemporaries take to social media to connect with fans, he chooses to fly beneath the radar, straining to keep details of his personal life private and relying strictly on gut rather than a career strategy when picking roles. He is notoriously press shy, which has no doubt »

"Out of the Furnace," Scott Cooper's follow-up to his debut "Crazy Heart," is an intense film. The same could be said for how the general public perceives its lead Christian Bale, following the infamous audio leak of the Oscar-winner going ballistic on his "Terminator Salvation" director of photography during the making of the 2009 film. Cooper was on hand at a Manhattan luncheon yesterday in his film's honor, alongside good friend Robert Duvall and Bale's on-screen little brother in the film Casey Affleck, to set the record straight about the actor. "That on-set audio for the record should never have been released," Cooper said when asked by Indiewire about his actor's temperament. "And the person who released it is a coward." "Christian Bale is one of my closest and best friends now," he added. "He's one of the best actors in the world. He's light, he's funny, he's a beautiful father, »

Terminator Salvation producers Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson have partnered with style icon Beatrix Ost to adapt her two memoirs My Father’s House: A Childhood In Wartime Bavaria and the forthcoming More Than Everything.

The latest installment in the Universal Studios’ Jurassic Park franchise, Jurassic World which is being directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed) had been rumored to be circling Josh Brolin (Men in Black 3) for the lead. It seems that, while that deal has fallen through, a new deal is circling Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt.
The part that Chris Pratt would be up for is a rugged ex-military type, according to THR. He would be playing opposite the already confirmed Bryce Dallas Howard (Terminator Salvation), who is set to play a scientist, and Ty Simpkins (Iron Man 3) and Nick Robinson (The Kings of Summer), who are set to play her nephews.

The level of gun violence in PG-13 films in 2012 exceeded that of R-rated releases in the same year, according to a report out this week.
Research by Us and Dutch university teams published in the December issue of Us journal Pediatrics revealed that gun violence – defined as discharging a gun and hitting a living target – has more than tripled since 1985 in films deemed appropriate for viewers aged 13 and above.
Researchers analysed the number of violent sequences – not exclusively involving guns – in 945 films culled from the top 30 films of each year from 1950 to 2012. Incidents involving rocket-propelled grenades and similar weaponry and hunting scenes were discounted.
On average gun violence appeared in the top 30 PG-13 films of 2012 in approximately three five-minutes sequences per hour, compared to 2.15 five-minute segments for R-rated releases.
The report’s authors said that while gun violence has been on the rise in all films and has more than doubled since 1950, the most marked increase has been »

Turns out the PG-13 rating may be protecting children from seeing more extreme violence, but it's turning them into gun nuts in the process.
In a just released study in the scientific journal Pediatrics, American and Dutch university researchers have found that over the past two decades, gun violence in PG-13 rated films has more than tripled.
In fact, PG-13-rated movies have contained "as much or more violence as R-rated films" since 2009, with 2012 being the tipping point where violence in PG-13 movies was higher than in R-rated movies.
The study was conducted on the top 30 films of each year between 1950 and 2012. Gun violence was defined as shooting a gun and hitting a living target, with both hunting scenes and larger artillery (eg. RPGs) not counted.

The new Terminator is scheduled for release in 2015.

With a new entry in The Terminator franchise on its way, fans are pretty anxious to know who, if anyone, from the original series will be coming back to do battle with the machines. Today we have a clearer picture.
THR reports that director Alan Taylor (the truly badass Thor: The Dark World) is prepping to begin testing actors and actresses for the sci-fi feature project, which is being made by Paramount, Annapurna Pictures, and Skydance Productions. The testing will begin next week, with Taylor seeing Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones"), Brie Larson (The Spectacular Now), as well as another actress vying for the part of young Sarah Connor. Margot Robbie’s name has also surfaced in connection with the role.
Taylor will also be searching for his young Kyle Reese, the man who will father John. Those actor tests will occur at a later date, but insiders say Garrett Hedlund »
