New Masters Of The Universe Movie Slated for 2019 Release

5 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Prepare for more big screen battles in the land of Eternia, because Sony Pictures has set a 2019 release date for a new Masters of the Universe movie.

According to multiple sources, including Box Office Mojo, the new Masters of the Universe movie is scheduled to come out on December 18th, 2019 from Sony.

Originally launched by Mattel in the early ’80s as an action figure line, the Masters of the Universe franchise follows a character called Prince Adam, aka He-Man, who bands together with fellow warriors to defend Castle Grayskull from the sinister sorcerer Skeletor and his followers.

The characters of the action figure line came to life in Filmation's He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series in the ’80s, followed by a 1987 live-action movie starring Dolph Lundgren as Prince Adam / He-Man and Frank Langella as Skeletor (see above).

The Original The Terminator Midnight at The Hi-Pointe Saturday, April 22nd

19 April 2017 8:04 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“I’m here to help you. I’m Reese. Sergeant Tech-Com, DN38416. Assigned to protect you. You’ve been targeted for termination!”

The Terminator Screens Saturday Night, April 22nd, at Midnight at The Hi-Pointe Theater ( 1005 McCausland Ave., St. Louis, Mo 63117). Admission is only $5.

Who would have thought a low budget science fiction movie aptly named The Terminator would be so iconic 33 years later as well as start the meteoric rise of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a legend in cinema, introduce director James Cameron to Hollywood as a force to be reckoned with, give a new meaning to audiences with the immortal line “I’ll be back”, spawn a large fan base, and then witness the birth of a big-budget saga with an even bigger sequel in 1991 that outdoes the first movie with Terminator 2 Judgement Day and then continue on with Terminator Rise Of The MacHines in 2003, Terminator Salvation in 2009, and Terminator »

Terminator Salvation: The Ultimate Proof That Movie Trailers Don’t Mean Squat

19 April 2017 5:30 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Thor: Ragnarok is the most viewed trailer in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.   I made an argument last week that the main reason for this is because the movie used Led Zeppelin’s “Immigrant Song” to accompany it.   Don’t get me wrong.  The trailer happened to be fantastic.  Cate Blanchett’s appearance was perfect.  Jeff Goldblum looked like some wacked out moron but it fit perfectly.  There was also an excellent blend of humor and action.  Honestly it was the perfect trailer.   But again, imagine they hadn’t used “Immigrant Song.”  How good would the trailer have been?  I bring this

From Spider-Man to Alien: why does Hollywood keep spoiling its movies?

4 April 2017 12:42 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Blockbusters keep getting spoiled before anyone has a chance to watch them thanks to plot-filled trailers and loose-lipped directors

This article contains spoilers for Cast Away, the Terminator franchise, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Alien: Covenant

Hollywood’s habit of spoiling movies by giving away essential plot points ahead of release is nothing new. A classic example is the trailer for Robert Zemeckis’s Cast Away, which reveals that Tom Hanks’ shipwrecked FedEx exec eventually escapes from the island. The Terminator franchise has been one of the worst offenders here: newer fans will recall the farrago over the producers’ decision to give away Terminator: Genisys’ big twist, that Jason Clarke’s resistance hero John Connor has been compromised by the machines. But the sci-fi saga has been at it for decades: one trailer for Terminator Salvation revealed virtually the entire story arc of Sam Worthington’s Marcus Wright, while James Cameron »

Arnold Schwarzenegger: ‘The Terminator Franchise Is Never Finished’

3 April 2017 2:14 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

No matter how hard audiences try to kill it, the Terminator franchise doesn’t seem to ever want to go down. Following Terminator Salvation, one would expect that exploration in this world would be spent, but Paramount found a way to return to the well with Terminator: Genisys. Sadly, this film didn’t fare too with critics, and it fared even worse at the box office, taking only $440 million worldwide. It’s not a flop by any means, but on a $155 million budget, it likely barely just broken even when all said and done (taking into account print, advertising, and the theater’s cut of the gross.

With profits being so hard to come by in their latest entry, there was no reason for them to expect that another crack at it would make any difference. Just last month, we reported that Paramount had declined a chance to make »

“Genisys” made $440.5 million worldwide against a $155 million budget.

After Terminator: franchises that deserve a mercy killing

Die Hard is a dead loss, Pirates of the Caribbean is sunk, and the Alien films are lost in space – why Hollywood should pull the plug on tired sequels

Related: He won't be back: Schwarzenegger's Terminator franchise terminated

The Terminator has finally been terminated. After the awful, needlessly convoluted machinations of Terminator Genisys – which followed the awful, needlessly convoluted machinations of Terminator Salvation and the just plain awful Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines – it’s being reported that Paramount has cancelled all other planned Terminator sequels. Hasta la vista, baby. You won’t be back.

Looks Like Arnold Schwarzenegger Really Is Finished With The Terminator Franchise

20 March 2017 1:06 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If The Terminator franchise has a future, Arnold Schwarzenegger won’t be a part of it.

At least, that’s according to a new report from NY Daily News claiming that the Austrian Oak is all but set to walk away from the iconic sci-fi series after 30-odd years and four feature films – Schwarzenegger actually turned down a role in Salvation, though his T-800 did appear toward the end of McG’s botched revival. In hindsight, the screen icon candidly admitted to dodging a bullet by passing up Terminator Salvation, but the fact that 2015’s Terminator Genisys, another dud that was originally designed to kick-start a new trilogy of movies, underwhelmed across the board seemingly signals the end of Schwarzenegger’s tenure in the series.

Citing a source close to the studio, NY Daily News’ report writes that,

How Common Prepared For John Wick: Chapter 2 & Gives Awesome Green Lantern Tidbit

14 February 2017 1:06 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Common, born Lonnie Rashid Lynn, has come quite a long way since I first remember him rapping in the 90s. Not to say that his music career is something to sneeze at, in fact he won an Oscar, Golden Globe, and a Grammy for his collaboration with John Legend on the song "Glory" in the movie Selma. However, Common has more recently been stretching out his acting wings, and he has been quite proficient in his roles.

I did not even realize that he played in Hell On Wheels, until I saw the opening credits around the mid point of season one. He also played in American Gangster, Terminator Salvation, Smokin' Aces, Wanted, and Street Kings. Oh, and let's not forget his "lengthy" role in Suicide Squad where he learned that looking at Harley Quinn is not the best idea in the world. One thing you may notice about these films, »

41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

6 February 2017 3:24 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »

Arnold Schwarzenegger, A Career In Crisis: Why the ’80s Action Icon Can’t Mount a Comeback

26 January 2017 8:30 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

This can’t be what Arnold Schwarzenegger imagined 2017 to look like: Sure, there’s a reality star in the White House, the Chicago Cubs are World Series champions, and his arch-rival (/best celebrity friend), Sylvester Stallone, is a recent Academy Award nominee. Yet for the ex-governor of California, far more confounding is how he became an ex-celebrity.

Schwarzenegger spent his acting life amassing a domestic box office of more than $1.8 billion. That haul came from comedies, like “Twins” ($111 million); science fiction, like “Total Recall” ($119 million) and “Terminator 2” ($204 million); or — his bread and butter — action flicks a la “True Lies” ($146 million) and “Eraser” ($101 million). But one unfortunate connection for all of Schwarzenegger’s films grossing $100 million-plus: They were all made before the year 2000.

Since the dawn of the new millennium, Schwarzenegger’s name above the title has carried less weight at the box office, resulting in drastically lower figures. How he »

Can James Cameron switch Terminator back on?

23 January 2017 9:38 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The sci-fi series has long been foundering, but the return of the original film’s director to the fold could offer the chance of a creative hard reset

There are parallels between the Terminator saga’s distressing downward spiral into creative redundancy and its own essential mythology. For over time, these movies have lost their humanity: James Cameron’s rich and vivid early visions of ordinary blue-collar Californians battling to avert the machine apocalypse have been replaced by storytelling so plain and by-the-numbers that one imagines everything from 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines onwards might have been produced by Skynet’s own screenwriting department.

Insipid 2009 effort Terminator Salvation was even financed by an investment advisory firm known as Pacificor, a moniker with so little sense of humanity about it that it’s hard not to visualise its corporate emblem as a single, demonic neon-red robot eye, Hollywood’s »

Terminator Reboot Teams Deadpool Director and Producer James Cameron

20 January 2017 5:25 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With certain rights to the iconic Terminator franchise reverting back to Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day creator/director James Cameron in 2019, the filmmaker is prepping his return to the series. Cameron is planning to 'Godfather' a 'reboot and conclusion' of the first two movies, with Deadpool director Tim Miller in early talks to direct. David Ellison, who bought the franchise rights from his sister Megan Ellison in 2013, is funding an "exploratory effort" that brings some of the top sci-fi authors together to "find the movie creatively."

Deadline broke the news, but even the site concedes that it's unclear what direction the story will go in. After directing 1984's The Terminator and its blockbuster 1991 sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day, James Cameron backed away from the franchise, and he wasn't involved in 2003's Terminator 3: Rise Against the Machines, the 2008 TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 2009's Terminator Salvation or last year's Terminator Genisys. »

Terminator Genisys: what would've happened in the sequels?

6 January 2017 7:18 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Jan 9, 2017

The planned Terminator Genisys trilogy never got made, but we've tried to piece together what might have happened...

Not for the first time, Terminator Genisys was supposed to mark a bold new chapter in the series dreamed up by James Cameron back in 1984. Terminator Salvation, released in 2009, was Sony's glossy, $200m reboot, this time focusing on humanity's charge against the machines in the near future.

When that movie failed to perform as expected, the rights to the Terminator franchise went up for auction, and the result was Terminator Genisys: a new interpretation of the series from Skydance, the production company behind the rebooted Star Trek movies. In many respects, Skydance's treatment of The Terminator was markedly similar to its 2009 Star Trek movie: younger actors cast in familiar roles, at least one veteran from the original series returning to give an air of canonical legitimacy, and a »
