'Terminator Genisys' Review: Arnold's Back, But Does It Matter?

30 June 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There is an alarming trend in remakes/reboots that has sprouted up over the past few years, that I first noticed with a pair of 2013 releases, Carrie and Oldboy. Instead of finding any sort of new angle into the story, they were both, essentially, shot-for-shot remakes of the original, but with a shiny new cast for the 21st Century to latch on to. With that being said, Terminator Genisys doesn't qualify as such, since it does have a few new things to offer, but it's still crafted in a way that doesn't pay homage to the movies that come before it, but becomes a slave to them, bombarding us with beat upon familiar beat that is probably supposed to evoke fond memories from the originals, but instead dilutes and complicates any semblance of originality.

I found it somewhat sketchy to see Paramount roll out a recent Terminator Genisys TV spot »

Impressive First Trailer Arrives For Nicolas Cage Political Drama The Runner

17 June 2015 3:55 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At this point, having flooded the market with such efforts as Left Behind, Outcast, Stolen, Drive Angry, Justice, Season Of The Witch, Knowing, and the Ghost Rider movies, there is a certain baggage that accompanies any casting of Nicolas Cage – regardless of the nature of the project. With an understandable reputation for somewhat bizarre and off-the-wall performances, Academy Award winner Cage regularly has an uphill battle to fight when it comes to new releases. The first trailer for his upcoming movie, The Runner, takes on a lot of that fight for him, however, as it showcases what could be his most nuanced performance in some time.

As the feature length directorial debut of writer-director Austin Stark, The Runner is a political drama that has attracted a high level of on-screen talent. Alongside Cage, the film stars Connie Nielsen (Nymphomanic: Vol. 1), Peter Fonda (Easy Rider), Bryan Batt (Mad Men), Sarah Paulson »

Independence Day 2 Synopsis Revealed

8 June 2015 7:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Independence Day 2 has been busily filling out its cast over the past few weeks, recruiting a mixture of fresh faces and old faithfuls to power the second entry in what is planned as a blockbuster franchise. Now, a information sheet for Fox’s upcoming schedule has shed some light on the plot of the follow-up.

Though the information sheet synopsis isn’t quite an official one, it does give an idea of what fans can expect from the sequel:

After Independence Day redefined the event movie genre, the next epic chapter delivers global catastrophe on an unimaginable scale. Using recovered alien technology, the nations of Earth have collaborated on an immense defense program to protect the planet. But nothing can prepare us for the aliens’ advanced and unprecedented force. Only the ingenuity of a few brave men and women can bring our world back from the brink of extinction.

Terminator Genisys: Emilia Clarke saves the day in a new exclusive clip

1 June 2015 9:15 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Emilia Clarke is on ass-kicking form in a new clip from Terminator Genisys.

The footage, unveiled exclusively on Digital Spy, sees Jai Courtney's Kyle Reese in peril until Clarke - playing Sarah Connor - shows up in the nick of time.

Alan Taylor's reboot sees Jason Clarke take on the role of John Connor, who continues to lead the war against Skynet in 2029.

Connor sends his loyal soldier Kyle back in time to 1984 to save his mother Sarah, but in the new timeline Kyle is forced to join forces with Sarah - and an ageing terminator - in order to face down a far larger threat.

Arnold Schwarzenegger reprises his role as the Terminator, while Matt Smith and Jk Simmons are also among the supporting cast.

Taylor is directing from a screenplay by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry).

Terminator Genisys is released on July 1 in the Us, »

William Fichtner Also Cast in Emmerich's 'Independence Day' Sequel

29 May 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

The cast for this big sequel continues to grow, with yet another intriguing name. Deadline reports that actor William Fichtner is joining Roland Emmerich's Independence Day 2 as a "top general". Apparently Fichtner's role as a general will get "even larger in the two films that will follow." Very interesting. Fichtner has appeared in a variety of films recently, including The Homesman, Elysium, The Lone Ranger, Phantom, Wrong, Drive Angry and The Dark Knight of course. He's always great to see in a movie, and I'm curious why his role will expand as it goes on. Does something happen to him or is he just a survivor? This also indicates that Fox is really pushing forward with a new trilogy of Independence Day movies coming up. As for returning cast members – Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Brent Spiner and recently confirmed Bill Pullman and Judd Hirsch will all be back »

The 5 Most Off-The-Wall Nicolas Cage Performances

4 May 2015 11:05 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Nicolas Cage has a formidable reputation, which is unsurprising given that he has been performing onscreen since 1981, but that was long before the internet got hold of him and his work. Now, in the fourth decade of a distinguished career, the Academy Award winner and his back catalogue are the inspiration for a range of ‘memes’ based on everything from his hair, to his tendency to deliver performances that seem to be somewhat off-the-wall.

He may not have enjoyed much box office success in recent years, but Nicolas Cage has a very devoted fan base that have a particular appreciation for projects and scenes in which he has a chance to go ‘Full Cage.’ This usually involves making some scary faces – often with wide eyes and a ghoulish grin – shouting very loudly, and gesticulating wildly. There may be screaming involved, and another person is very often the focus of his menace. »

Fire & Photoshop Engulf the New Poster for 'Terminator: Genisys'

30 April 2015 8:30 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

It looks like Paramount Pictures isn't going to be shy at all about the major plot twist that was revealed in the last trailer for Terminator: Genisys. A new poster for the sequel/reboot has just been revealed, and it puts the new Terminator (and his surprising identity) front and center amidst some fire and pretty terrible Photoshop. They couldn't figure out a better background than that plain gray, Sears portrait studio color scheme? There's already so much fire around Arnold Schwarzenegger and company, why not just engulf the whole poster in flames? And by that, I mean it should be set on fire, because it's just awful. Look below! Here's the new poster for Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys from Yahoo: You can still watch the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys right here. Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World »

Old & Young Schwarzenegger Fight in 'Terminator: Genisys' TV Spots

24 April 2015 3:22 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Skynet has created a new Terminator to stop us." After the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys gave away a pretty big plot twist for the franchise sequel, some international TV spots bring that twist to the forefront of the marketing in Asian markets. However, there's also some new bits of footage here, including shots of the aged Terminator (old Arnold Schwarzenegger) fighting with the Schwarzenegger from the 80s. In addition, we also get to see some more shots of the advanced Terminator coming to blows with Schwarzenegger. And they're still milking that "I'll be back," line for everything it's worth. Watch below! Here's the international TV spots for Terminator: Genisys from Paramount International: You can still watch the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys right here. Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World) and written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, »

Outcast – The Blu Review

8 April 2015 9:52 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Say what you want about Nic Cage, you gotta admit he is the hardest working man in Hollywood. Sure, most of these erstwhile (often Direct-to-dvd) efforts Cage has been associated with (Drive Angry, Rage, Trespass, Stolen, Season Of The Witch, Frozen Ground, Left Behind..….wow, it’s a long, long list) fall squarely in the sub-b-movie category, but there is the occasional diamond in the rough. Last year’s Joe made my top ten list and the work he did in Bad Lieutenant Port Of Call should have won awards. In his newest, the 12th-century China-set adventure Outcast, Cage plays “The White Ghost” and time he isn’t the leading hero. And it’s no gem. Hayden Christensen, the blank slate blamed for crippling the second wave of Star Wars films is the main protagonist of Outcast and he plays Jacob, the stoical, taciturn, gritty, wandering badass with measured assurance. »

Review: "Outcast" (2014) Starring Hayden Christiansen And Nicolas Cage; Blu-ray Special Edition

7 April 2015 1:17 PM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Doug Oswald

Nicolas Cage is a workhorse and may be one of the busiest actors today. In an era where big name actors might release a single movie per year, Cage typically comes out with three, four or even five. At any given time he may have over a half dozen movies in various stages of production. Cage is a good actor, often a very good actor, and has made some very entertaining movies that stand up to repeat viewings. I enjoy much of what he does from the over-the-top supernatural action-horror movies “Ghost Rider” and “Drive Angry,” to the adventure-mystery “National Treasure” franchise and his voice work for about a half-dozen animated movies. His list of credits and genres is vast and, if his movie output is any indication, he’s a very busy guy. This can be a good thing for Cage fans, but may result in »

Arnold Gets Blown Away on 'Terminator: Genisys' Motion Poster

25 March 2015 10:26 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We already know that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back for more sequels after Terminator: Genisys, though that doesn't mean necessarily mean the aged iteration of the T-800 we see in this new trilogy reboot won't get destroyed (we doubt he will though). But he'll still probably suffer some damage, and a new motion poster from across the pond illustrates that in a cool way as the aged Schwarzenegger skin that covers the robotic exoskeleton of the Terminators is blown away to reveal the metallic cyborg we all know. It's a pretty cool little poster, but after seeing the full trailer, I'm still concerned about this one. Look! Here's the new motion poster for Terminator: Genisys from Paramount Pictures UK: You can still watch the first full trailer for Terminator: Genisys right here.

Saw Writers Hired for New Halloween Film

10 February 2015 3:11 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

The last "Halloween" film we got was Rob Zombies "Halloween 2," which was released in 2009 and earned only $39 million worldwide. Since then, Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry, My Bloody Valentine) was attached to direct a reboot, but ended up dropping out. Now comes word that Dimension Films has hired Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the writers behind several "Saw" films and "Piranha 3Dd," to write a new "Halloween" movie, which has been described as a "recalibration," rather than a remake, reboot or a reimagining. Very little is known about the new film, including what the story will focus on, the title or the release date. Stay tuned. »
