Following the dismal Terminator Salvation and eventual downfall of TV show The Sarah Connor Chronicles, the Terminator series was in dire need of a fresh start. Now, after idling in development hell with occasional updates, we can at the very least say that some headway has finally been made. As of today, the series’ in-development reboot will officially be called Terminator: Genesis.
It’s not the best title, but it’s the first film in a planned reboot trilogy and is certainly functional. /Film points out that the title could also be a simple placeholder, which is definitely a possibility.
There’s no hard info on anything else regarding the new film as of yet, but one could reasonably infer that it will follow a similar plot trajectory to that of the original quadrilogy. At this point, all we know about the reboot is that it will be written »

There’s still a whole lot we don’t know for certain about the upcoming Terminator 5, otherwise known as Terminator (2015). However, Arnold Schwarzenegger is confirmed to reprise as the titular killing machine (even though he’s now 66 years old), drawing from a screenplay written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) that will reboot the sci-fi franchise’s convoluted timeline, in order to setup for a potential new stand-alone movie trilogy.
Alan Taylor has left news of him directing the film as “rumor” for the time being, though that hasn’t prevented the Thor: The Dark World helmer from saying that – in the purely-hypothetical situation that ...

Back in July we bought you news that Lati Grobman and actress/producer Christa Campbell ('Drive Angry'), the guys behind this years slasher sequel 'Texas Chainsaw 3D', acquired the rights to George Romero's 'Day of the Dead'.

Tonderai will direct from a script adapted by scribe Lars Jacobson. The 1985 original from George Romero marked the third chapter in his 'Dawn of...' franchise which would go on to spawn 3 further sequels all directed by the legendary horror filmmaker. »

The official trailer and plot synopsis for the Uwe Boll produced horror sequel 'Seed 2: The New Breed' has arrived, and it's pretty sick. 'Seed 2' is written and directed by Marcel Walz ('Candy House') who takes over from Boll as director 7 years after the original slasher was released.

Earlier in the week we heard that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) are under consideration for the role of Sarah Connor in director Alan Taylor's (Thor: The Dark World) upcoming Terminator reboot, with Boyd Holbrook (The Host) and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) also up for John Connor.
Well according to The Hollywood Reporter, there's truth in the rumours that Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson are set to test for Sarah Connor, while Garrett Hedlund is actually under consideration for the part of Kyle Reese, with Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) also said to be in the mix. However, Taylor has apparently identified his number one candidate for John Connor, with the site reporting that Tom Hardy tops the wishlist to succeed his The Dark Knight Rises co-star Christian Bale in »

Last we heard on the “Hellraiser” reboot front, the story’s original author (and the original movie’s director) Clive Barker is currently writing the script. We haven’t heard who will be directing the film yet when it finally does happen — which isn’t a given, since it’s been years since the movie was first put into development. “Drive Angry’s” Patrick Lussier, who was originally attached to direct, is now off the project. Enter Paul Gerrard and Mike Le Han, who have put together a rather snazzy looking “pitch trailer” called “Hellraiser: Origins” to put their names into the hat. You can check it out below. I’m not sure if they’re both going for the job as a directing duo, or if it’s just Le Han directing and Gerrard doing production designs. Either/or. Writes the duo: From Paul Gerrard (Wrath Of The Titans, »

Over two years ago, Dimension Films was working on a reboot of the horror series Hellraiser, but the film from Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier (of My Bloody Valentine 3D and Drive Angry 3D) didn't come together. Some concept art surfaced online but the project was abandoned. But the project has new life again as ShockTilYouDrop noticed an update on the Facebook page of Clive Barker, the writer and director of the original 1987 film, saying that Dimension had hired him to write the reboot now. And he promises it won't be a reboot that forgets the roots of the first film, both in practical filmmaking and story. Barker posted the following on Facebook: "Hot From Hell! My friends,I have some news which may be of interest to you. A few weeks ago I had a very productive meeting with Bob Weinstein of Dimension Pictures,in the course of which »

It’s been more than a quarter of a century since Clive Barker’s classic horror movie Hellraiser was released, which according to our Hollywood clock means that its long past due for a reboot. This is one franchise, however, that has so far been surprisingly resistant to any plans for a remake of the first movie, with all of the attempted reboots so far having fallen through.
This has a lot to do with Dimension Films being very selective and cautious in its approach to the reboot, and to who should write and direct it. From Martyrs director Pascal Laugier to Drive Angry‘s Patrick Lussier, there have been plenty of ...

Now that it's landed in theatres we have to assume the asset express will be slowing down somewhat. 'Machete Kills' hit theatres on Friday and to coincide Empire Online sneaked in this new grindhouse styled UK one-sheet right under the wire featuring star Danny Trejo as the legendary Machete Cortez. Trejo stars alongside an eye-popping line-up that includes Alexa Vega ('Spy Kids'), Sofia Vergara ('Modern Family'), Lady Gaga, Amber Heard ('Drive Angry'), Michelle Rodriguez ('Resident Evil: Retribution'), Jessica Alba ('The Eye'), Demian Bichir, Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson. The Robert Rodriguez helmed sequel is in theatres now! »
China's 2013 Huading Awards took place recently, naming the world's best entertainers. The results are bit surprising, since Nicolas Cage won the Best Global Actor award. Cage was definitely a top talent many years ago, appearing in such hits as "Leaving Las Vegas," "Face/Off" and "Con-Air." But since the, the actor lost everything and has been starring in "Ghost Rider 2," "Drive Angry," "Season of the Witch," "Bangkok Dangerous" and many other flops. Maybe these newer movies haven't hit China yet. Meanwhile, Nicole Kidman was named the Best Global Actress and Quentin Tarantino the Best Global Director. For some reason, Sam Worthington (Avatar) received the Best Global Action Movie Actor award and Booboo Stewart, who's best known for the last two "Twilight" movies, took home the Best Emerging Global Talent prize. * Lifetime achievement award (Jeremy Irons) * Best global actor in motion pictures (Nicolas Cage) * Best global actress in motion pictures (Nicole Kidman »

Abandoned but never quite forgotten, "All the Boys Love Mandy Lane" finally reaches theaters seven years after it was finished. A graphically violent, sexually explicit teen horror tale, it was close to being ahead of its time, in its time. Now, it plays like a quaint, fairly obvious period piece -- from 2006.
The reason it was worth releasing was its rising star, Amber Heard, just at the beginning of her big-haired blonde bombshell appeal. "Zombieland," "Drive Angry" and the new film "Machete Kills" were years ahead of her. But even then, you could pick her out as star in this cast. And not just because she had the title role.
Mandy Lane is the freshman who "got (bleeping) gorgeous" over the summer before her sophomore year. The boys don't try to hide their lust. She's loyal to best friend Emmet (Michael Welch of "The Twilight Saga"). But dragging him along »

The follow-up also stars Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez ('Resident Evil: Retribution'), Sofia Vergara ('Modern Family'), Amber Heard ('Drive Angry'), Jessica Alba ('The Eye') Lady Gaga, Mel Gibson, Cuba Gooding Jr, Charlie Sheen and Demian Bichir. Check the poster below. »

Forget about the socially conscious core that fueled the exploitation engine of the first film. This one is flat-out, no-message action comedy, outrageous and hilarious. I’m “biast” (pro): loved the first film
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
It started with a trailer: a fake movie ad “left over” from the 1970s for a Mexploitation flick dropped into Quentin Tarantino’s Grindhouse… which Robert Rodriguez later expanded into the very funny and pointedly satirical full-length Machete. Now, the sequel, Machete Kills, opens with a new fake 1970s relic trailer, for, heh, Machete Kills Again in Space. It hints at a completely ridiculous expansion of the Machete legend into Star Wars-era space opera, and it’s as many degrees of insanity beyond where Machete Kills will take you as Kills is beyond the first flick.
