2015′s Terminator Genesis – as the project is currently known – won’t be a direct continuation of the last installment in the Terminator franchise, Terminator Salvation; the latter took place in a post-Judgement Day wasteland, where the war between humanity and the A.I. Skynet was fully underway. No, Genesis will instead be a reboot of the sci-fi property – how “hard” or “soft” a reboot, exactly, remains to be seen.
According to recent rumors, the upcoming Terminator feature will jump around through time, causing further disruption of history in this particular fictional universe – and thus, free things up for a new standalone trilogy. Events from the previous movies (the first two installments, to be specific) ...

The media mogul who organized the DNA test allegedly proving Michael Jackson fathered a son in 1982 insists the results are 100% real -- despite using a laboratory logo that's obviously been doctored -- telling TMZ, the logo was altered to make it look prettier.Billionaire Alki David released the so-called "results" live on the Internet Thursday -- and after TMZ obtained a copy of the document, we discovered the logo on top wasn't just fake ... it was ripped from "Terminator Salvation. »

FilmOn founder Alki David announced during a Beverly Hills press conference on Thursday that DNA testing has proven singer B Howard to be Michael Jackson's son, with “99.99999 percent” probability. However, the proof's authenticity is in question, and the generic lab's logo may have even been lifted from “Terminator Salvation.” TMZ burst any believers’ bubbles on Friday after obtaining a copy of the document David claimed was issued by a DNA lab in Ireland, creatively called “DNA Lab.” The outlet found no proof such a facility exists.

The DNA results that had supposedly proven that 31 year old singer Brandon Howard, son of gospel singer Micki Howard is Michael Jackson’s illegitimate son are confirmed as bogus. On Thursday afternoon Digital media entrepreneur, Alki David and his media company disclosed sets of DNA results from Michael and Howard saying that they are a match. What they did not disclose was what lab the results came from. Through much digging and research, the answer was ; the lab that the “results” came from is ripped from Terminator Salvation. The logo on the results is the same logo that was used for promotional purposes of the movie. And unsurprisingly, a DNA lab named “DNA Lab” does not even exist. Nice try, Alki.

"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.
"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 »

Arnold is back for Terminator: Genesis, and it.s just as crazy to us as it is to you. The 66-year-old actor is reprising his role as the T-800 that he first played an astounding thirty years ago, back when he was a bodybuilding star that represented James Cameron.s second choice for the role behind O.J. Simpson. Since then, he.s played the role three more times, showing up in a brief cameo in Terminator Salvation. If you.re doing another Terminator film within that continuity, you might as well call him up, even if he.s in his sixth decade. Schwarzenegger went ahead and gave an update on the film, which is set for release next year. Speaking to Thearnoldfans.com, the former Governor of California revealed exactly where they.re going to be, and for how long. "We start filming in the middle or in the »
Arnold Schwarzengger has said that the new Terminator: Genesis film's script is "fantastic".
The actor discussed his return to the franchise after his absence in 2009's Terminator Salvation.
"We start filming in the middle or in the end of April and it will be a four or four-and-a-half month long shoot. We will be filming it in New Orleans, with some of it in San Francisco and maybe a little of it in La, but most of it will be done in New Orleans," he said at the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus (via The Arnold Fans).
"I'm really looking forward to that because as you know, the last time when they did the Terminator, it was when I was governor and so I couldn't be in that movie, but now I'm back again and they are very excited about having me in the film.
"The script is fantastic, so »

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!

It’s taken a while, but the long-rumored fourth Jurassic Park movie – now officially titled Jurassic World – is on its way to becoming a reality. Sets for the film are currently under-construction (including on locations used in Steven Spielberg’s original movie over 20 years ago), while a cast of humans is being assembled to face off against dinosaurs in the sci-fi/horror adventure.
Lego Movie voice actor Chris Pratt – who also stars in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy this summer – is playing one of the leads in the new Jurassic Park installment (a character Pratt describes as jaded, yet wide-eyed towards the dinos), while The Village and Terminator Salvation star Click to continue reading ‘Jurassic World’ Cast Adds Vincent D’Onofrio and Irrfan Khan [Updated]

First impressions are everything, which is why the art of the movie trailer has become the most vital tool in the film industry. A bad trailer can sour you on the best movie, but most of the time it’s the other way around. If Hollywood does anything right, it’s selling us a slow-cooked turd as delicious chocolate.
So here are Dread Central’s picks for great horror movie trailers that overshadowed their lesser films:
Exciting trailers for bad movies are a dime a dozen, but what about the ones that are shot just for marketing? You won’t find a better example of an ad eclipsing a film than the brilliant teaser for The Hills Have Eyes 2. Completely wordless with only the sounds of dragging bodies and Devendra Banhart’s “Insect Eyes,” the teaser showed more artistry and directorial flare than anything in the actual movie. »
Imagine a med student with orange dreadlocks down to his ass during the early 1990s. Do you have that horrifying mental image yet? Any takers on who that now-famous man might be? That’s right, it’s Joseph McGinty Nichol from Kalamazoo, Michigan. Like plenty of driven young filmmakers, Nichol one day dropped out of school, packed his things and moved to Hollywood. Without any connections, he pushed his way into the industry with the help of a pizza delivery service. He put a copy of one of his music videos in a pizza box and had it delivered to an executive, who was tickled enough to give it a watch. That box of pizza gave birth to the man we all now know as McG, the director behind Charlie’s Angels, We Are Marshall, Terminator Salvation and his newest film, 3 Days to Kill. Nichol has had that nickname ever since he was a kid. In »

Rebels Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) is easily one of the strongest heroines in fiction, a woman who doesn't quake in the presence of the dreaded Darth Vader or crumble when her entire planet is destroyed right before her eyes. Unfortunately, she's also one of the only female characters with a substantive role in George Lucas' six-movie epic.
Now that Disney owns Lucasfilm, the strong female character drought in the Star Wars universe appears to be at an end. Lucasfilm Animation recently released a short video via THR that features the first new female character in the post-George Lucas universe: Sabine (voiced by Tiya Sircar), a spunky, "feisty" tomboy from the same planet as Boba Fett who will be a major character in the new series Star Wars: Rebels. Shortly after THR's scoop, THR revealed the second new female character: Hera (voiced by Vanessa Marshall), a Twi'lek pilot and rebel. »

Here’s a little piece of ‘90s trivia for you: the guy who co-wrote Sugar Ray’s infectious hit “Fly” is the same man who directed “This Means War.” I can’t be the only one who finds that strange. Today, Joseph McGinty Nichol—aka McG—is best known as the filmmaker behind mediocre action flicks including “Charlie’s Angels” and “Terminator Salvation.” Critics like to rag on McG, and I’m not here to argue with them; there’s a reason why David Edelstein called “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” a “third-rate ‘Austin Powers’ picture cut to the whacking, attention-deficit-disorder tempo of ‘Moulin Rouge.’ ” However, there’s more to the director than middling, uninspired popcorn flicks. Fifteen years ago, McG was in the music business, producing rock albums, writing songs, and directing videos. Mostly he stuck to the third category, thus creating some of the most memorable pop culture moments of the decade. »

A final round of auditions recently concluded with Courtney winning the highly-coveted role, according to Variety.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to reprise his role from the first trilogy as well.
About a week ago we reported that two actors were in contention for the coveted role of Kyle Reese in director Alan Taylor’s upcoming film, Terminator: Genesis. Those actors were A Good Day To Die Hard star Jai Courtney and relative unknown Body Holbrook (Hatfields &McCoys). At the time, it was suspected that Holbrook was the frontrunner for the role. Today, however, it’s being reported that the studio has gone with Courtney. He will join the film alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger (returning as the titular killing machine), Game of Thrones alum Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor and Zero Dark Thirty star Jason Clarke (no relation) as John Connor.
This fifth instalment in the Terminator franchise has been in the works for several years now, mostly due to legal troubles after The Halcyon Company filed for bankruptcy in 2009. The rights were then picked up by Annapurna Pictures in 2011, and after »

Variety reports that Jai Courtney has signed on to play Kyle Reese in the new Terminator reboot. Reese had a big role in the first Terminator, as the soldier from the human resistance who goes back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor from the Terminator. Not to spoil anything, but he impregnates Sarah, making him John Connor's dad, and gets killed. In Terminator Salvation, we meet a younger Reese, when he first meets resistance leader John Connor, not knowing he will be his father through time travel. Courtney is joining a cast that includes Arnold back as Mr. Terminator, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, and Jason Clarke as John Connor. Considering that Clarke is older than the actors playing his parents, you know some time travel will be going down. Maybe he'll be going back in time to explain why the robots made a Terminator that looks like an old European »

Paramount and Skydance’s reboot of the “Terminator” franchise has found the Terminator’s enemy/ally (depending on the plot this time ’round) in Australian actor Jai Courtney, who will be adding the role to the 50 or so other movies he’ll be doing in 2014. Variety reports that the very busy Courtney will join “Game of Thrones’” Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, with Jason Clarke (no relation) as John Connor, and Arnold Schwarzenegger as Arnold Schwarzenegger. Er, I mean, as the Terminator. (Whether this is the good or bad Terminator, once again, depends on whatever nonsense plot they come up with this time ’round.) “Thor: The Dark World’s” Alan Taylor will direct the film, officially titled “Terminator: Genesis,” which is expected (as if you couldn’t already guessed) to be the first of an all-new trilogy that may or may not be associated in anyway whatsoever with the James Cameron »
