2K today announced the debut of 2015 WWE Hall of Fame inductee and global action film icon Arnold Schwarzenegger in WWE 2K16, the forthcoming release in the flagship WWE franchise. Best known for his acting, bodybuilding and political endeavors, Schwarzenegger, a longtime WWE fan and WWE Hall of Famer, will expand his relationship with WWE through WWE 2K16 with two playable characters, the T-800s from The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day films. 2K also released a trailer for the upcoming game, that features Arnold Schwarzenegger re-enacting the infamous bar scene from Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Here's what the actor had to say in a statement.
"I've achieved many things in my life, but I've always said success means staying hungry and pushing the limits. I was honored to join the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year, and now I'll continue my WWE legacy with one of my biggest »

The studio plans to release a game for phones and tablets by the end of 2016, which could coincide with the release of the fourth film in the franchise.
Lionsgate has not yet dated a fourth “Expendables.” It opened the previous three films — which starred Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Bruce Willis and Dolph Lundgren — in 2010, 2012 and 2014, with worldwide box office totaling nearly $800 million.
“We’re delighted to partner with the incredibly talented and successful Avi Lerner of Millennium Films and the innovative Eric Tan of Fifth Journey to expand the universe of ‘The Expendables,'” said Peter Levin, Lionsgate’s president of interactive ventures and games. “Combining a powerful brand, a global fanbase stretching from North America to China and cutting edge technology, ‘The Expendables’ is »

Can I get a "Hell yeah!" Wrestling fans should be rejoicing this morning as 2K has revealed that the one and only Stone Cold Steve Austin is the cover athlete for WWE 2K16 and will be featured throughout the game. Come inside to learn more.
I'm going to be honest here, wrestling just isn't what it used to be. I watched it all the time when I was younger, but over the last decade or so, haven't been able to get into it very much. For me, the highest point of the entertainment sport was the "Attitude" era, where The Rock and Stone Cold were prominent players along with other memorable wrestlers. So today's announcement that Stone Cold is on the cover of the new WWE 2K game, has me pretty giddy.

Since his role in the blockbusting ensemble piece The Expendables, Dolph Lundgren has been somewhat of a tour-de-force in the world of direct-to-market action flicks. From straight forward action movies like Hard Rush and A Certain Justice, to more fantastical films such Battle of the Damned and Legendary, Lundgren has been tolling away in the genre starring in films that, whilst not all are entirely successful, are ways apart from his pre-Expendables career.
The reason for his recent success, in this reviewers opinion, seems to be his willingness to share the limelight. Where once he may have demanded the mot screen time, a headline on the poster etc., these days his films are more about the ensembles within them. He’s starred alongside the likes of Vinnie Jones, Randy Couture, Cung Le (an underrated action star »

Jason Statham isn't one to say no to sequels (The Transporter series, The Expendables trilogy), so it doesn't come as a huge surprise that he will return as Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious 8. Statham confirmed to Access Hollywood his character will be back for the Furious 7 sequel. I’m a newcomer, I just got invited to the party in this last one, so it’s nice to know... Read More »

Wamg was among members of the media and invited guests to witness the Grand Opening of Fast and Furious Supercharged, the latest movie-themed attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood. The presentation treated everyone to an extensive display of cars from the movies, a dance performance, speeches by top Universal execs and L.A.’s mayor, all topped off by an exciting assortment of live car stunts including a 90-foot jump through a billboard that caught us by surprise.
After the presentation concluded, we were lucky enough to go on a test-ride of the adrenalin-pumping, high-speed adventure with Dom, Hobbs and the rest of the Fast and Furious gang. Coming at the end of the famous Back-lot Tram Tour, Supercharged literally puts you smack dab in the middle of a high-flying, breakneck speed chase. The technology is pretty cool, in that with the giant 360-degree screen and 3D glasses, »

Wrestlers have been invading the movies for years. After all, who better to dole out some scripted, Ott grappling than the men who make it their living?
The wrestling industry has everything that Hollywood loves: stars with name recognition, fight scenes, rippling muscles, beautiful women and drama so heightened that it’s in danger of leaving orbit.
While the movies they appear in are often stupid stupid dumb stupid, megastars like Hulk Hogan, Steve Austin, John Cena and Dave Bautista have all achieved a certain level of Hollywood success, in movies like No Holds Barred, The Expendables, The Marine, and Guardians of the Galaxy respectively. Oh, and you may have heard of an actor on the independent movie circuit called Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
When a wrestler is cast in a movie, fans hope to see certain things: one-liners, big people hitting other big people, things falling over, and, »

Ex-Governor of California Arnold Schwarzenegger took to the streets recently to film a promo for his fourth film as the T-800 Terminator, reprising his roles from 1984, 1991, 2003 and again this year for Terminator: Genisys. Schwarzenegger, 67, has been busy since leaving office after two terms in 2011, starring in several films including The Expendables series and […]

Sir Roger Moore wants former James Bond actors to star in an action movie.
The 87-year-old star revealed he’s been approached by a film studio to develop a movie starring several former 007 actors including Sean Connery, 84, George Lazenby, 75, Timothy Dalton, 71 and Pierce Brosnan, 62.
Speaking about the concept, he insisted: “I’d be up for it.
“But I’d need about ten stunt doubles.”
According to The Sun newspaper, the film would be similar to ‘The Expendables‘ franchise, which has brought together movie legends including Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren and Bruce Willis for a series of action-packed blockbusters.
However, Sean, who retired in 2006, is not convinced by the idea and is currently refusing to engage in discussions for the movie. »

From Zoolander 2 to 23 Jump Street, with 100s in-between. Here's our rundown of the assorted movie sequels in the works...
Think Hollywood is bereft of original ideas? You just might after this. Here's our look at the assorted movie sequels currently in the works. Since we last did a list like this, we've dropped films that seem to have died a death - Wanted 2, Spring Breakers 2 - but we'll keep this rundown up to date over the coming month.
Without further ado...
23 Jump Street
Sony is pressing ahead with a third Jump Street movie, as well as a possible Jump Street vs Men In Black film, and a female-headlined spin-off. For 23 Jump Street specifically, Rodney Rothman is back and working on the script (he wrote the second one). It's unclear yet if Chris Miller and Phil Lord can find breathing space in their schedule to direct. Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill are both expected back, »
Last week, it was leaked and subsequently confirmed that Jason Statham was in deep negotiations to play the villain Bullseye on the upcoming season 2 of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix. This news was probably the greatest moment of my whole life. Then not even 48 hours later, the talks broke down for whatever mystical Hollywood reason. Statham would not be playing the iconic villain of Bullseye, which was probably the saddest moment of my whole life, because we missed out on an opportunity to watch Statham be an action villain again.
The only thing better than Action Hero Jason Statham is Action Villain Jason Statham, and that’s a side of him that only 2 films have explored to date with 11 years between the two. We could have gotten up to Thirteen Whole Hours of Action Villain Jason Statham, and even more so on a show that had surprisingly great and excitingly choreographed action scenes. »

Jason Statham is all over the place, kicking ass in high-octane action films, and even stretching into comedy with the espionage send up Spy. He.s also not opposed to appearing in franchises, like the Fast & Furious films or The Expendables, but he recently said he will not be returning to one of his best known, The Transporter, but is totally game for more Crank. While doing the press rounds for Spy, Yahoo caught up with Statham and McCarthy and fired off a barrage of questions during a lightning round three-minute interview. When asked about the possibility of returning for The Transporter 4, Statham was brief, brusque, and got his point across with a one-word response: Never. That seems rather clear and doesn.t leave a lot of room for optimistic fans of Statham.s character, Frank Martin, to interpret his statement. At least it doesn.t leave much hope of »
Yesterday, it was reported that Jason Statham is being looked at to play Bullseye in Daredevil Season 2. While Marvel claims there.s no truth to this rumor, many have thought that this would be a good fit for the actor given his vast experience in action movies like The Transporter and The Expendables. However, even if he doesn.t end up fighting Matt Murdock next year, there are still plenty of other evildoers that he could portray should he choose. Statham was recently critical of Marvel.s CGI action sequences, and he.s said in the past that he.s not a fan of superhero movies. So realistically, him joining a comic book movie doesn.t sound like it.s in the cards.That being said, it.s always fun to play the "What If?" game. Assuming that we live in a world where Statham would be willing to jump »
Say whatever you want about Jason Statham, but at the end of the day, you know exactly what you are going to get in Stath flick. Action, arse kicking, a couple of lovely dolly birds, his short right off and some kick-ass one liners. To celebrate the release of his new film Spy, which arrives in cinemas on Friday 5th June, we thought we’d count down our favourite Stath moments that have been captured on film over the years since his debut in 1998’s Lock Stock & Two Smokin’ Barrels. We love him. We all love him.
“Protection from what? Ze Germans?” Snatch (2000)
Stath plays… Turkish
Shirt On, or Shirt Off? – Shirt On
Possibly the film that secured Stath as a Hollywood leading man. His turn as Turkish is perhaps my favourite role that Statham has portrayed on screen. The film is full of one liners and fun interactions, particularly »

Stars: Dieter Laser, Laurence R. Harvey, Bree Olsen, Eric Roberts, Robert Lasardo, Tommy ‘Tiny’ Lister, Clayton Rohner, Jay Tavare, Michael Flores, Carlos Ramirez, James Darnell, Akihiro Kitamura, Chris Clanton | Written and Directed by Tom Six
The wait is finally over ladies and gentlemen! One of this years most anticipated horror films is finally here! Yep, Tom Six (I Love Dries) has finally unleashed The Human Centipede 3: Final Sequence upon the world. When I watched parts 1 & 2 upon initial release, I was rather underwhelmed, but upon revisiting the films prior to the third and final chapter in the trilogy, I found myself enjoying the films for what they are. I won’t go in to detail because if you’re reading this review, you have already seen them. Needless to say, the films were brutal with an original concept that made Dieter Laser (John Gleuckstadt) amd Laurence R. Harvey (The Editor) household names and horror icons. »

Skin Trade, 2014.
Directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham.
After his family is killed by a Serbian gangster with international interests, NYC detective Nick goes to S.E. Asia and teams up with a Thai detective to get revenge and destroy the syndicates human trafficking network.
This long gestating passion project for Dolph Lundgren has finally come to fruition. Originally conceived around 7 years ago when Lundgren read a news story about human trafficking, he’s had a long road waiting for the right circumstances to get the film made. Initially the plot was to take place between New York and Eastern Europe, and at one point even Steven Seagal was tentatively rumoured as a co-star. However after working in Thailand on a film with Tony Jaa (the yet unreleased, A Man Will Rise) Lundgren decided his co-star »

We can't keep up with the state of The Expendables series. We know that there's a television series being developed, and we wondered if that meant that the movies were being put on hold, at least for the time being (in spite of the fact that plans were apparently afoot for a fourth and fifth film). Well, apart from the still apparently active The ExpendaBelles movie, which will be headlined by women.
Chatting at the Body Pro Expo held in the mighty Birmingham, Hogan revealed that "I was talking on the phone with Sly last night about doing The Expendables 4", adding that "we're trying to figure out a way to »
Part and parcel of The Expendables‘ appeal is the series’ star-studded cast of has-beens, with everyone from Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren and band leader Sylvester Stallone dusting off their action gear for another stint in the limelight. And despite the third installment being met with middling reviews not to mention a franchise low $40 million at the domestic box office, The Expendables 4 is all but a given thanks to the series’ appeal overseas.
Without a production start date to call its own, there’s still a lot of negotiations before filming begins in earnest, but someone who wants in on the bombastic action is WWE superstar Hulk Hogan, which could potentially pave the way for an unofficial Rocky III reunion.
Speaking to Movieweb, the fan favorite personality – real name Terry Gene Bollea – revealed that he has had talks with Stallone about a potential role in the unannounced sequel, where he »

Though Lionsgate hasn't officially begun moving on a fourth "The Expendables" movie yet, franchise star Sylvester Stallone revealed back in March that he's already made initial plans with one of them being a return to the R rating of the first two films.
We know Stallone will be back as Barney Ross, but today comes word of a potential new cast member - pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan. During a Q&A session at the Body Power Expo in Birmingham, Hogan dropped a tease that he and Stallone have been in touch about him potentially playing a villain in the film:
"We're trying to figure out a way to maybe turn me into the most evil man in the world. Y'know, Stallone gave me my first break and he's been a great friend. We had a great conversation, talking about the possibilities. Can I still run, can I still jump? »
