After Terminator: franchises that deserve a mercy killing

22 March 2017 12:30 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

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,

“It is over for The Terminator and Arnold. The studio has taken »

Maybe Inspired By His Appearance in ‘John Wick: Chapter 2,’ Common Books Lead in Revenge Thriller with “Hyper-Intense Shootouts”

13 March 2017 1:36 PM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

To the chagrin of some of you, Common continues to enjoy a thriving acting career; the man’s constantly working! Including significant roles in recent years, in films like “Smokin’ Aces,” “Street Kings,” “American Gangster,” “Wanted,” “Terminator Salvation,” “Just Wright,” “Barbershop: The… Continue Reading → »

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 »
