If you’ve been paying close attention to the marketing campaign for Terminator Genisys, then you’ll know that Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions have given away a major plot point regarding Jason Clarke’s John Connor, both in the promotional trailers, and the character poster you can see to your left (apologies if you’d managed to avoid spoilers until now).
It certainly seemed baffling that the studio would choose to give away such a major twist, and judging from comments from director Alan Taylor during a promotional interview with Uproxx, it appears he’s a little puzzled by it all too:
“I certainly directed those scenes with the intention that no one would know. One of my favorite moments – and I think Jason Clarke did a great job with it – is when he walks into the hospital in 2017 and everything from there until the turn, you’re supposed to think, »

“I think calling for more women in every aspect of this industry is a sensible thing,” Alan Taylor, the director of Terminator Genisys told Vulture on the red carpet of his film’s premiere at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. The past season of Game of Thrones raised some eyebrows because for the first time, there were no female writers or directors despite trudging on with violent, rape-heavy story lines. (In the past three seasons, there have been three writers and directors: Jane Espenson, Vanessa Taylor, and Michelle MacLaren.) Vulture asked Taylor about the lack of women in the production process, which got him talking about his daughters and why he thinks the mounting gripes about violence against women on Game of Thrones is “nonsense.”I think calling for more women in every aspect of this industry is a sensible thing. It's easy to say that because it's correct, but »

The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected. Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee, Courtney B. Vance, and J.K. Simmons, »

Terminator Genisys Drunk Robots Trailer
On last night's episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, a "never before seen" trailer debuted for Terminator Genisys, which adds a new wrinkle to the franchise: What if these Terminators were drunk? Jimmy Kimmel explains that these machines are "more human than ever before," cutting together actual footage from the movie, with scenes of »
Daenerys Targaryen, is that you?! Emilia Clarke sat down with Jimmy Kimmel on Monday, and she had him cracking up when she did her best take on a Valley girl accent. She explained that while she was shooting her movie in New Orleans, she rented a (possibly haunted) house from her Game of Thrones costar Michiel Huisman, who plays Daario. The house was really hot, so one night, she decided to go to Home Depot to get an air-conditioning unit, and to avoid being recognized, she decided to wear a hat and talk with an American accent. Emilia did her best take on a Valley girl accent for Jimmy, and when he asked her what she modeled it after, she explained, "I, like, love Clueless." Watch the hilarious clip above, then see what Emilia said about her Game of Thrones sex scene and check out stunning pictures of her on »
Part of me wishes that this wasn’t even news, but there just aren’t enough female directors yet snagging big-budget tentpoles as to make the following seem unremarkable: MGM is rumored to be searching for a woman to reboot its Tomb Raider franchise, revitalizing the series that made a star out of Angelina Jolie and more recently birthed a stellar video game redo from Square Enix.
According to scoopster Umberto Gonzalez, MGM wants a “Michelle MacLaren type” at the helm for the Tomb Raider remake. What that means isn’t exactly clear, but MacLaren first made her mark on the small screen, directing key episodes of prestige series like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Leftovers and Better Call Saul. Warner Bros. hand-picked her to direct its high-profile Wonder Woman stand-alone, but she ultimately departed the project over the good ol’ creative differences and was replaced »

We saw a new trailer and a couple of posters last week [see here and here], and now we have the first action-packed TV spot for the upcoming video game adaptation Hitman: Agent 47, which you can watch right here…
Hitman: Agent 47 centers on an elite assassin who was genetically engineered from conception to be the perfect killing machine, and is known only by the last two digits on the barcode tattooed on the back of his neck. He is the culmination of decades of research – and forty-six earlier Agent clones — endowing him with unprecedented strength, speed, stamina and intelligence. His latest target is a mega-corporation that plans to unlock the secret of Agent 47’s past to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Teaming up with a young woman who may hold the secret to overcoming their powerful and clandestine enemies, 47 confronts stunning revelations about his own origins »

The 28-year-old’s character is instantly one of the most recognisable on TV right now, even to those who (stunningly) aren’t fans of the show, and Daenerys has sparked a cosplay dream with every fancy dress or Halloween party being frequented by at least one Khaleesi.
However, despite the iconic image, Emilia Clarke claims she has managed to drift under the radar thanks to her Thrones hair being nothing more than a wig – that’s what grab’s the audiences attention, so as soon as you take away the wig, she can go relatively unnoticed.

Having made his name on HBO's "Game of Thrones," director Alan Taylor made the jump to big screen filmmaking with "Thor: The Dark World" in 2013 and this Summer returns with yet another major studio blockbuster - "Terminator Genisys".
This week, whilst promoting the latter's release this week, he expressed unhappiness with the former when asked to compare the experience shooting both these projects. He tells Uproxx:
"They were very different. I've done two and I've learned that you don't make a $170 million movie with someone else's money and not have to collaborate a lot.
The Marvel experience was particularly wrenching because I was sort of given absolute freedom while we were shooting, and then in post it turned into a different movie. So, that is something I hope never to repeat and don't wish upon anybody else.
This [Terminator] was not like that. The story we started telling is essentially the »

There are a number of filmmakers who have made it clear they won't work with Marvel again, but also plenty of others who have and will. It sounds like Game of Thrones vet Alan Taylor falls into the former camp based on recent comments in an interview with Uproxx to promote Terminator Genisys. "They were very different," he said when asked to compare his experience working on this movie to working with Marvel on Thor: The Dark World (which has a respectable 65% on Rt). "I’ve done two and I’ve learned that you don’t make a $170 million movie with someone else’s money and not have to collaborate a lot. The Marvel experience was particularly wrenching because I was sort of given absolute freedom while we were shooting, and then in post it turned into a different movie.

Olivia Munn (Magic Mike) is set to take on the role of Psylocke in next year’s mutant superhero sequel X-Men: Apocalypse, and the actress has taken to Instagram to post a short video showing her demonstrating her sword-weilding skills in preparation for the part…
X-Men: Apocalypse is set for release on May 19th, 2016 in the UK and May 27th, 2016 in the States, with Bryan Singer directing a cast that includes X-Men veterans James McAvoy (Professor X), Michael Fassbender (Magneto), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), Nicholas Hoult (Beast), Evan Peters (Quicksilver), Rose Byrne (Moira MacTaggert) and Lucas Till (Havok) along with newcomers Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Apocalypse, Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones) as Jean Grey, Tye Sheridan (Mud) as Cyclops, Alexandra Shipp (House of Anubis) as Storm, Kodi Smit-McPhee (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes »

Creative freedom or directorial shackles? Depending on who you ask, taking on a big budget blockbuster is either the chance to try some exciting things with lots of money and big effects teams, or finding yourself in constant meetings with executives who have an endless series of conflicting notes serving various needs. For director Alan Taylor, who cut his teeth on TV with "Game Of Thrones," "The Sopranos," "Mad Men," "Deadwood" and more, his leap to tentpole movies with Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World" was fine...until shooting wrapped. "I’ve done two [blockbuster movies; the other being this week's 'Terminator Genisys'] and I’ve learned that you don’t make a $170 million movie with someone else’s money and not have to collaborate a lot," Taylor told Uproxx. "The Marvel experience was particularly wrenching because I was sort of given absolute freedom while we were shooting, and then in post it turned into a different »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Conan" are the only late night talk shows to air new episodes this week -- besides Jon Stewart's countdown to the end of his run on "The Daily Show." Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers and James Corden are all on repeats. But never fear, 'cause the Khaleesi is here to entertain us!
British actress Emilia Clarke -- aka Sarah Connor in the new "Terminator Genisys" and Queen Dany Targaryen on "Game of Thrones" -- was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night, and discussed shooting the new "Terminator" movie in New Orleans. Apparently the house she was staying at -- rented from her GoT co-star Michiel Huisman »

Emilia Clarke commanded two audience members on Monday's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" to "fight to the death" after the fans of her "Game of Thrones" character interrupted her interview with the talk show host and demanded to fight for Khaleesi's honor. Naturally, this was all part of a bit, and no audience members were actually injured, though Clarke had instructed one fan to "kill" the other. Watch the funny video here. »

"I'm going to get in so much trouble!" Who would dare try and reprimand our Khaleesi aka Emilia Clarke? Well, her bosses at Game of Thrones! But why would the Mother of Dragons be getting in trouble with Westeros' powers that be? While promoting her highly anticipated new flick Terminator: Genisys, Clarke kind of told MTV News that she thinks that there's a "50/50 chance" that (Spoiler Alert!) Jon Snow (Kit Harington) really isn't dead, despite that super-upsetting final scene in the season five finale, as well as confirmation via interviews with Kit Harington and the showrunners. But when chatting with E! News, Clarke is clarifying that she doesn't know if Jon is dead or »

With the recent trend of dystopian films based on Young Adult novels doing so well at the box office – like The Hunger Games and Divergent, for example – it was only a matter of time before we headed back to the beginning.
Overriding the system isn’t just a game for the under-25 set. The genre has produced heroes from every walk of life who brought down corrupt systems – or at least tried to. Dystopian films have embraced the idea of rebellion for decades, churning out futuristic flicks like The Matrix, Blade Runner, Children of Men, and Snowpiercer.
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as the titular Terminator this weekend in Terminator Genisys alongside "Game of Thrones"' Emilia Clarke, Divergent’s Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, J.K. Simmons, and “Doctor Who”’s Matt Smith in an undisclosed role.

London — Andrew Scott, who is Jim Moriarty in “Sherlock” and is soon to be seen as Denbigh in James Bond movie “Spectre,” has joined the cast of Philippa Lowthorpe’s feature film adaptation of Arthur Ransome’s adventure story “Swallows and Amazons.” Scott, whose other movie credits include “Pride,” will play a secret agent — by the name of Lazlow — in pursuit of the reclusive and enigmatic Jim Turner (Rafe Spall), inspired by Ransome’s own life as a spy.
In the novel “Swallows and Amazons,” Ransome based the character of Turner on himself as a novelist. The filmmakers behind this new adaptation have been inspired by Ransome’s secret life as an agent for the British intelligence service MI6, and based Turner on Ransome the spy. The truth about Ransome’s role as a secret agent, whose code name was S.76, was revealed 10 years ago when the British government released »
