Next summer, the 67-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger will once again return to his signature role of The Terminator in the awkwardly-titled reboot Terminator: Genisys, and franchise creator James Cameron has been speaking about the project during a chat with Deadline, explaining how the aged Arnie can be integrated into the plot of the film:
“I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold,” stated Cameron, who directed both The Terminator and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day. “I pointed out that the outer covering [of the Terminator] was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he »

A few months ago, Terminator creator and mastermind James Cameron revealed that he was loosely attached to the upcoming Terminator Genisys film. It was just an advisory role for him, but it seems like he played a decent sized role in developing the story that we are going to see unfold. In a recent interview with Deadline he reveals what what his big and awesome contribution was.
"I wasn’t interested in producing it or working on it actively, but I did want to put in a good word for Arnold.

The studio will drop the feature film adaptation based on the 1980s Hasbro toy line and cartoon on October 23, 2015, hitting theaters just in time for Fall. Director Jon M. Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) helms the quickly assembled musical adventure film, which paints the titular Jem as an orphaned teenager who becomes an internet sensation and subsequently embarks on a music-driven scavenger hunt with her bad. The picture is a Blumhouse Productions joint, which is mostly known for producing low budget horror films like the Paranormal Activity series and Sinister that go on to turn a big profit.

Terminator: Genisys is not due out until next summer, but many fans are intrigued by the reboot of the classic sci-fi action franchise. Not much is known about the project other than it will retell the original two films after something alters the timeline. However, it looks like Genisys is not opting for the darker tone of the first two movies, and will likely to have a PG-13 rating.
In an interview with The Arnold Fans, actor Jai Courtney – who plays Kyle Reese in the film – stated: “I would love to see it be rated R, but I don’t think it will. I think in this day and age, it’s much more likely to be PG-13. There were no f-bombs. But there’ll be a healthy amount of movie violence.”
So, it would seem the latest instalment of the Terminator franchise seems to be opting for levels of »

Going to the movies is expensive, and in this economy there’s less incentive than usual to make it to the multiplex just for a couple hours of entertainment, especially when so much of it is just reruns on the big screen (another Dracula, seriously?) — never mind all the other complaints you all have about the theatrical experience. The movies should be seen as a getaway from our troubles, just as they were for much of the Great Depression, but this time around we have so many other options to keep us distracted. Well, what if there was a movie playing in theaters for free? Yeah, you’ll still have to pay for a babysitter, gas, parking and concessions, if those things apply, but the main event costs you nothing on October 20th when you go out to see a bunch of new movies by Adam McKay (Anchorman), Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight), Jon M.

Morgan Spurlock and a group of economically-minded filmmakers are on a mission to prove that the best things on screen are free.
The “Super Size Me” director is teaming up with Landmark Theatres this month to offer the new film series, “We the Economy: 20 Short Films You Can’t Afford to Miss” for free at 20 locations ranging from Boston to San Diego for one night only. The film will then be made available digitally and through other platforms the next day, also without charge.
Spurlock jokes that when he first told Landmark CEO and President Ted Mundorff that he wanted to offer the film for free there was a brief moment of silence before the exhibitor quickly said he was on board.
“We want to create an event to launch this and have it really take off,” said Spurlock.
The project is a collection of twenty short films from such »

According to Deadline, RZA — real name Robert Fitzgerald Diggs — will star alongside Sam Rockwell and Anna Kendrick in the film, which follows a young woman (Kendrick) who falls head over heels for the seemingly perfect man. However, as the story unfolds, we learn that the titular Mr. Right just so happens to moonlight as a hitman — now that’s a gnarly skeleton to keep locked up in the closet.
Nonetheless, in terms of RZA’s role, it’s understood the celebrated rapper will step into the shoes of Shotgun Steve, a trained marksman who collaborates with an opposing gangster. At this stage, that’s all we have in terms of plot details, though Deadline reports that Max Landis — the scribe behind 2012’s excellent found footage superhero flick, Chronicle. »

(Cbr) The magicians of "Now You See Me" might be getting help from a wizard in their upcoming sequel. According to Deadline, Daniel Radcliffe is in negotiations to join "Now You See Me 2," the 2016 sequel to the heist-with-magicians film that surprised pretty much everyone by earning $351.7 million at the box office. The hit, which was produced for $75 million, resulted in a hefty profit for Lionsgate/Summit. Radcliffe will reportedly play the son of Michael Caine’s character, Arthur Tressler. Jon M. Chu ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") is attached to direct the sequel, most likely once he wraps post-production on another film expected in 2016 — "Jem and the Holograms." Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Caine are all expected to return. Radcliffe will next be seen in "Horns," opening October 31. »

Terminator: Genisys is sure to include a ton of action and robot killing machines traveling back in time to assassinate people. But there's another story that the movie will tell, and it sounds like it won't just be another hollow big budget large scale action movie. Apparently, it's also going to involve a deep love story.
The news comes from J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man) who is currently making the press rounds for his new film, Whiplash, which is amazing by the way! He has a role in Terminator: Genisys, and he discussed it a little bit in an interview with Coming Soon.
Simmons will be playing an aging, alcoholic detective who has been tracking Sarah Connor for years and has witnessed all of the strange things that have happened to her over the years.
The actor said that he started reading the screenplay expecting your standard "formulaic yadda-yadda-yadda then cut to the stuff blowing up, »

Busan — Popular Korean actor Lee Byung-hun, normally a regular on the Biff red carpet, was conspicuously absent at the opening ceremony Thursday night due to his ongoing sex and blackmail scandal.
The aggressive social media scene in South Korea has exploded with the sordid “he-said, she-said, wife-said” presumptions in a case still being sorted out by authorities.
The 44-year-old star (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” “Red 2″) made headlines this week after filing a police report for being blackmailed by two women who claimed to have compromising video footage of Lee making sexually explicit remarks to them. The women have been detained on conspiracy charges.
Lee, married to another Korean star, Lee Min-jung, is the victim in the eye of the law, but public opinion criticizing his “immoral” actions has been severe.
Online petitions have been launched demanding his ousting from the industry including a ban at Biff. Lee is the face of a Samsung cell phone advert, »

As Adrianne Palicki gears up to make her debut in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Head of Hydra Security Bobbi Morse – best known to comic book fans as Mockingbird, and the wife of fellow Avenger Hawkeye – the G.I. Joe: Retaliation star has been talking to IGN about the role, stating that there have been discussions about the character making the jump to the big screen to team up with the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
“Absolutely,” she replied when asked if the possibility of linking up with The Avengers was part what attracted her to the role. “That was one of the things that was discussed when I was coming on for the part, and you know, we’ll see what happens. It’s such a nice world that we live in that crossover can happen so often now which in the past it never really did so, »

What better way to hype up a heist film based on magic, than by casting the most famous wizard of all, Daniel Radcliffe. Now You See Me became a box-office surprise hit last year and a sequel was planned almost instantly. It starred a group of illusionists and magicians whose grandiose shows eventually lead to crime in a ‘rob from the rich’ kind of fashion. Michael Caine, the cruel insurance man from the first film, is set to reprise his role (probably looking for revenge), and has revealed that Daniel Radcliffe will play his son. Speaking to HeyUGuys, Caine had this to say:
There’s a sequel to Now You See Me and we’re shooting in London. I shoot in December, the whole of December in London, and my son is Harry Potter. I thought it’d be funny, me and Daniel Radcliffe as father and son.

When anyone is cast on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., it immediately raises the question of whether or not that character could then make the jump from the small screen to the silver screen and join the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One such question arose this past summer when Friday Night Lights and G.I. Joe: Retaliation actress Adrianne Palicki joined Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. as Bobbi Morse a.k.a. Mockingbird, a member of the Avengers in the comics and the eventual wife of Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner).
And while it’s completely possible that Mockingbird could appear on the big screen someday, it was previously unclear if that was a viable option. According to Palicki herself, however, it’s not only possible, but it’s already been discussed.
When promoting her upcoming film John Wick, Palicki spoke with IGN and said the following about playing Bobbi Morse, »
