It looks like Terminator: Genesis has added another name to its expanding cast, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing that Spider-Man star J.K. Simmons is in negotiations with Skydance and Paramount about joining the upcoming reboot, with the site stating that he's "play a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decade."
Terminator: Genesis is set to be directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) and will reportedly blend together elements from James Cameron's original two movies, The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) will portray Sarah Connor, with Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as John Connor, the leader of the Resistance, and Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) as Kyle Reese, the man sent back to protect Sarah from Arnold Schwarzenegger's cybernetic killing machine. »

We've already seen at least one red band trailer for the latest action thriller Sabotage starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, but now one more restricted trailer has arrived to get fans excited before the film's release in just a couple weeks. There's f-bombs and blood splatters, some girls kissing, and a new part of the plot that makes things personal. We're not sure if Schwarzenegger's best action years are definitively behind him, but this particular attempt doesn't look like anything spectacular. It's certainly not better than Schwarzenegger crushing stuff with his own personal tank, but it could be an entertaining action thriller. Here's the new red band trailer for David Ayer's Sabotage, originally from Yahoo: Sabotage is directed by David Ayer (End of Watch) and written by Skip Woods (A Good Day to Die Hard, The A-Team). The film follows Arnold Schwarzenegger as the leader of an elite DEA task force »

"I've always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when A Good Day to Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, 'Really? They're gonna make another one?' and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it's healthy to have that because you want it to be something special, you want to keep that eye for quality sharp."
"But when I read this, I was pretty into it and the story's cool. It's attached a great cast as well. I think Emilia Clarke's wonderful and she's got a lot of support and stuff behind her. And Jason Clarke as well I'm a big admirer of so, yeah, it's gonna be really cool, »

Miles Teller and Jai Courtney are no strangers to the Hollywood movie making machine. Miles has won critical acclaim for roles in films such as "The Spectacular Now" and the upcoming Sundance hit "Whiplash" as well as candidly charm audiences in mainstream fare like "Footloose" and January's "That Awkward Moment." Courtney is an Aussie TV veteran who was "showcased" alongside Bruce Willis in "A Good Day to Die Hard" and had supporting roles in "Jack Reacher" and "I, Frankenstein." Both men will be seen next in Neil Burger's "Divergent," but it goes without saying that most movie fans are interested in their next big projects. Courtney was recently cast in the "Terminator" reboot "Terminator: Genesis" as Kyle Reese, a character previously played by Michael Biehn and Anton Yelchin. Teller has become a somewhat controversial choice to play the stretchy Reed Richards (aka Mr. Fantastic) in 20th Century Fox's revamp of the "Fantastic Four. »

Mary Elizabeth Winstead has been spoken for. One of the most hotly pursued actresses this pilot season has been tapped as the lead of ABC‘s drama pilot Exposed, from writer Charles Randolph, Peter Traugott’s Tbd Entertainment, Sweden-based Yellow Bird Entertainment and Universal TV. Based on the best-selling Swedish novels by Liza Marklund, Exposed centers on Anna (Winstead), an investigative journalist who will stop at nothing to uncover the truth, including making questionable alliances. Winstead turned down some half-dozen pilot offers this season before settling on Exposed. The actress, repped by Wme and Anonymous Content, has been straddling the indie and mainstream feature worlds with roles in indies like the 2012 Smashed, which landed her an Indie Spirit nomination, and in such big-budget movies as A Good Day To Die Hard and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.

The world collectively rolled their eyes when it was announced that one of the most famous franchises in history would be ‘rebooted’ in 2015. Terminator is one of the most iconic films of all time and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day, is probably one of the only sequels to outmatch its outstanding predecessor in almost every way. The two subsequent sequels that followed were less than spectacular to say the least…and so here we are with a newly minted Terminator series due in a mere year and a half, widely rumoured to be titled Terminator: Genesis.
Ordinarily I would beg for Hollywood to leave this franchise alone after the terrible Terminator 3: Rise Of The MacHines and Terminator: Salvation, however this new film will see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. The chance to see The Terminator return for potentially the last time is definitely a tantalising one, »

Video-game adaptations are a dime a dozen, but it’s rare that any of them are worth even a cursory glance. The Resident Evil franchise, BloodRayne and Silent Hill are just a few of many that have fallen completely flat in their attempts to replicate the thrills of their source material on the big screen. However, based on casting alone, 20th Century Fox’s upcoming Hitman remake Agent 47 may actually be worth checking out.
With Homeland actor Rupert Friend stepping into the title role (replacing the late Paul Walker), and Zachary Quinto set to play the main villain, Agent 47 already has more going for it than most video-game adaptations. Now, it looks like the film will boast more than one baddie, with news that Thomas Kretschmann has signed on to play Le Clerq, the chairman of an nefarious organization called Syndicate International, which schemes to build its own army of assassins. »

In this day and age, its hard not to be skeptical of any reboot or remake. And it's not only fans that feel this way, but also the actors that appear in such cinematic undertakings. The Terminator franchise has quite a legacy, and newly cast Jai Courtney reveals that he was highly skeptical of Terminator: Genesis, where he will appear as Kyle Reese, father of John Connor.
The story will apparently jump through the timeline of the original four-part saga, working like 2009's Star Trek in setting up a new series of events. This will not be a direct continuation of what's come before it, but instead serves as a true reboot of the material. As the timeline shifts, the narrative will be free from its past complications in a way we haven't seen before. Events from 1984's The Terminator and 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day will be revisited, and »
We have an exclusive TV spot for Sabotage, the latest from writer/director David Ayer (End of Watch).

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Olivia Williams, Mireille Enos, Sam Worthington, Harold Perrineau, Terrence Howard, Joe Manganiello, Max Martini, and Josh Holloway star. Sabotage opens March 28. Watch the TV spot after the jump. Between gunfights, the script by Ayer and Skip Woods (A Good Day to Die Hard) is based on the Agatha Christie mystery novel And Then There Were None. Here's the official synopsis: In "Sabotage", Arnold Schwarzenegger leads an elite DEA task force that takes on the world's deadliest drug cartels. When the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they think their work is done - until, »

It was recently revealed that Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) has been cast as Kyle Reese in the upcoming "Terminator" reboot, called "Terminator: Genesis." In the original film, Kyle Reese is a friend of John Connor who goes into the past to prevent a terminator from killing John's mother. In a new interview with IGN, Courtney spoke about joining the reboot. "I've always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted," he explained. "I remember when ['A Good Day to Die Hard'] came around a few years ago, I was like, 'Really? They're gonna make another one?' and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it's healthy to have that [skepticism] because you want it to be something [special], you want to keep that eye for quality sharp." Courtney continued: "When I read [the script for 'Terminator: Genesis'], I was pretty into it and the story's cool. It's attached a great cast as well. »
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thomas Kretschmann, who plays Baron Wolfgang von Strucker in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron, and currently on IMAX screens in the Russian movie Stalingrad, has signed on to play another high-profile villain in Fox’s Hitman video game adaptation Agent 47.
Kretschmann will play Le Clerq, the chairman of an organization called Syndicate International, which is set on creating an army of unstoppable agent, in the film. I actually wanted to see him play Albino, since I’m a big fan of the game myself.
Rupert Friend is playing the title character in the movie, which was to have been a Paul Walker. The film was scripted by A Good Day To Die Hard‘s Skip Woods and Michael Finch, and is being helmed by commercial director Aleksander Bach.

The Lego Movie was the only clear winner during a so-so February at the box office. Overall domestic grosses came in at around $700 million, which was a 13 percent improvement over last year. Still, it's way off from 2012's $818.2 million record, and is also noticeably lower than 2010 and 2009.Through the end of February, year-to-date box office is trending up 10 percent from 2013. If that pattern can continue, 2014 will be the first year in which the domestic box office breaks the $11 billion mark.The Lego Movie dominated the month of February, earning more than the next four titles combined. The surprise animated hit opened to $69 million, which is the second-highest February opening ever. In the weeks since, it hasn't dropped by more than 37 percent; through the end of February, Lego had already earned $192.7 million at the domestic box office.If it holds up well against Mr. Peabody & Sherman, Lego will wind up with at least $270 million total. »

If you are determined to reboot a fractured and scattered movie franchise such as Terminator, there is only one way to tie it all together before moving forward, and that’s with the original cyborg himself. Speaking recently to TheArnoldFans.com at the Arnold Sports Festival, Schwarzenegger took time to tease the upcoming fifth instalment – Terminator: Genesis.
“I’m really looking forward to that because, as you know, the last time they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor, and so I couldn’t be in that movie. But, now I’m back again and they are very excited about having me in the film, and David Ellison, who has produced all the big movies lately, has plenty of money to do it well. He’s in partnership with Paramount Pictures who are going to release the movie through their distribution. I’m really looking forward to that »
