Arnold Schwarzenegger is taking his movie comeback seriously. As well as The Expendables 2, Arnie is also filming Last Stand, and he's currently prepping a role in Black Sands (formerly announced as Black Sands). While the film had previously been described as a western of sorts, with comparisons to Man On Fire and High Plains Drifter mentioned, Arnie has thrown a curveball by telling website TheArnoldFans (via The Playlist) that he's playing an angel in the movie. "I'm a kind of angel," he said, adding, "I can not currently...

Underworld Awakening (dir. Mans Marlind, Bjorn Stein)
Word got out that Arnold Schwarzengger would follow up his supporting stint in The Expendables 2 and his comeback starring role in The Last Stand with a leading turn in another action-thriller: Black Sands, a new project directed by onetime stunt supervisors Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh (the upcoming Act of Valor) based on a screenplay by The A-Team writer Skip Woods.
The film was then being described as a Commando-style flick that would pit a loner (Schwarzenegger) against a vicious weapons manufacturer; now, the project (which has not been retitled Black Sunday, despite reports to the contrary) is said to be more of a genre mashup.
Arnold Fans has the scoop on Black Sands, which will reportedly star Ah-nuld as an immortal warrior (he describes his character as “kind of an angel”) who battles ...

From superhero flicks "The Avengers," "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Dark Knight Rises" to sequels "Men in Black III" and "Wrath of the Titans" to book adaptations "The Hunger Games" and "The Hobbit," 2012 is shaping up to be an exciting year at the movies.
Here's a preview!
2012 Movie Preview'Chronicle' (Feb. 3)
Like it or lump it – Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in a big way. 2012 will see him return to the big screen in several roles, most notably in The Expendables 2 and as a small town sheriff in The Last Stand. But, according to reports today, Arnie will also be shooting a supernatural-flavoured actioner Black Sunday from A-team scribe Skip Woods.
What is interesting is that the project started life as ‘Black Sands’ and was a more conventional, down-to-earth action film. But Arnie has apprently insisted on adding a fantastical element, and will now be playing an angel-like character. Let’s hope it’s a better effort than End Of Days.

Rumor time, folks. But, it's slow today - as it is wont to be between Christmas and the New Year - so we'll drop some Arnold Schwarzenegger gossip on you.
The man is making a comeback on the big screen in a big way. He's got The Expendables 2 on the way, he's shooting Last Stand...and now there's this project entitled Black Sands, which may place the actor in Shock territory as it is being described as a supernatural thriller. The last time we saw him tussle with evil from the other side was in End of Days.
Here's the string of information and how it came in.

Miley Cyrus and her boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, soaked up the sun in Hawaii this afternoon. The couple snapped pictures of themselves, and Miley even caught a cute shot of Liam shirtless. Miley and Liam got away after spending the holidays with family, though the festive season isn't the only reason they've had to celebrate. Miley turned 19 years old last month and recently tweeted about the two and a half years of "pure bliss" she's enjoyed with Liam. There's even more excitement for Liam, who stars in the upcoming movie adaptation of the popular book The Hunger Games. The drama hits the big screen in March, which means the actor will embark on a big press tour in the New Year. We just got a look at more new Hunger Games pictures, including a shot of his costar Jennifer Lawrence in character. Liam will also get to work promoting The Expendables 2 »

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been jumping right back into the action ever since ending his political career. He just finished playing a border sheriff who faces off with a drug lord in The Last Stand, and is slated to have a larger role in The Expendables 2, which arrives next summer.According to The Arnold Fans, the action icon is set to play an immortal in his next sci-fi/action thriller soon.
The film has just gotten a new title. It was initially called Black Sands, and is now titled Black Sunday. “I’m kind of an angel,” stated Schwarzenegger. There are not any plot specifics available at this time, but it is believed that the film is a mix of Constantine and Commmando. Arnie is speculated to be playing an archangel who takes on weapons dealers. Many of you may be concerned about Scwarzenegger (now 64) being able to live up to his action icon status. »
In October, we reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be following up The Expendables 2 with the action flick Black Sands. Schwarzenegger was reportedly set to play "a loner who wages war against a ruthless weapons manufacturer and his private army in the Southwest." Now the former California governor says there's a supernatural element in the plot as well. Speaking to TheArnoldFans (via The Playlist), Schwarzenegger says "I'm a kind of angel. I cannot currently say more about this film." TheArnoldFans add that the movie, now titled Black Sunday, is a cross between Commando and Constantine. What does that mean? My guess: His character and Alyssa Milano happily feeding demonic deer on a fiery hellscape. Or maybe it's like End of Days, and who didn't like that film? (Everyone). Filming on Black Sunday is set to begin on April 1, 2012. Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy will direct. Schwarzenegger will be seen next summer in The Expendables 2. »

In addition to The Last Stand and The Expendables 2, the Governator had also signed on to star in Black Sands, a new action film from Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy, the duo behind the Navy SEALs flick Act of Valor (watch the trailer right here). The film's original story was said to follow Schwarzenegger as a loner who wages war against a ruthless weapons manufacturer and his private army in the Southwest, however, it sounds like the project now has a bit of a supernatural twist to the plot. Read on! Now titled Black Sunday, Schwarzenegger told TheArnoldFans (via The Playlist) that he's playing some kind of immortal hero now. The actor says, "I'm a kind of angel, but I can not currently say more about this film. »

It all seemed too predictable: Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to his bread and butter with some cold hard violent justice. Following his small role in "The Expendables 2" and the lead in modern western "The Last Stand," the hulking legend was set to star in "Black Sands." From Scott Waugh and Mike McCoy, the directors of upcoming Navy Seals recruitment film actioner "Act Of Valor," the script, from Skip Woods ("The A-Team," "Hitman") was being described as a cross between "Man On Fire" and "High Plains Drifter." And yet, suddenly, Arnie has flipped the script on all of us and gone into "End Of Days" mode. Now the project is known as "Black Sunday," with Arnold saying he's playing some sort of immortal. "I'm a kind of angel," he tells TheArnoldFans fansite. "I can not currently say more about this film." The project is now being called a cross »
Some things are just not fair. I work out every single day of the week and have nary a two-pack. But 65-year-old Sylvester Stallone? From my count, based on this photo, a six and a half pack. Yep, despite his age, the Rocky star must have been eating plenty of raw eggs to get in shape for his latest action film, April 13′s Bullet to the Head. The film, from which this shot is taken, also stars Christian Slater and Jason Momoa and follows Stallone’s cop character as he searches for his colleagues’ murderer.

Let’s face it, this could be a new promo image from The Expendables 2 but here we have a new image of Sylvester Stallone looking ridiculously toned in his new movie, Bullet to the Head courtesy of Vulture. Bear in mind, Stallone is now 65 years old! Craziness! I was going to say I hope I look like him when I’m 65 bt firstly, there’s no chance and secondly, I hope I don’t!
Based upon a Matz and Colin Wilson graphic novel Stallone plays Jimmy Bobo, a hitman who teams with a young NYPD detective (Sung Kang) in a high-stakes investigation that leads from the dingy back alleys of New Orleans all the way to the power corridors of New Orleans. The unlikely duo, brought together by two vicious murders, take on all who stand in their way, and are willing to sacrifice everything to exact revenge.

The news of Van Halen hitting the road again in 2012 got me thinking about the other comebacks I’m eagerly awaiting. Next year, I’ll happily welcome the return of:

Couple things you maybe didn't realize about Sylvester Stallone: he's in phenomenal condition for a 65-year-old dude, and those shoulder tattoos in The Expendables weren't temporary. Both of those things are on display in the above snap from Bullet To The Head, his action-thriller that arrives on April 13 in an attempt to supply you with a Sly fix until The Expendables 2 shoots up the screen on August 17. The movie comes from director/tough-guy expert Walter Hill (48 Hrs., The Warriors) and »

The Cannon Group struck gold with its first martial arts film, 1981's Enter the Ninja. Though Western audiences had seen ninjas before, most notably in the 1967 James Bond film You Only Live Twice, this movie changed how these shadow warriors were portrayed on the screen.
Transplanting martial arts mayhem into a gunslinger plotline, the ninja gained near-superhuman abilities and a more heroic disposition. The resulting film was successful enough for Cannon to launch two franchises (Enter the Ninja and American Ninja) and embedded the art of Ninjutsu into American pop culture.
The film opens as Westerner Cole (Franco Nero) is completing his final test in Ninjutsu, thus earning the right to practice and teach the art. But Hasegawa (Sho Kosugi), a high-ranking ninja in the dojo, isn't happy with »

Apparently there was so much manliness on the Bulgarian set of "The Expendables 2" that thousands of local bats have been forced to relocate. "Several thousand bats are missing from the Devetashka cave since our latest count in January when the visible colonies numbered 33,800 bats," said Boyan Petrov of the Museum of Natural History. A rough count after the sequel started filming has dropped to 8,500 bats. "Never before have we counted less than 10,000 bats in wintertime." Expert Antonia Hubancheva said the animals were subjected to stress, loud noise from heavy machinery and construction works, bright projector lights and crowds of people which kept them awake during a period when they should have been hibernating. "These bats were badly harmed -- they were scattered, scared, chased, woken up!" she said. Click here to read more about "The Expendables 2." »
After watching the recent trailer for The Expendables 2, I have been reading quite a bit of speculation from various gaming boards that there very well might be a game in the works based on The Expendables that would be release on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Vita and possibly even the new Wii U. With a roster of a "who's who" in the action world such as Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis ,Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Rand… »
The Expendables 2 has been shooting in Bulgaria, and it seems some of the area's nocturnal animals have suffered since production began. Bat experts have slammed the production for filming in The Devetashka Cave near Lovech, Bulgaria, claiming the bat population has dwindled significantly. Here's what Boyan Petrov of the Museum of Natural History had to say.
"Several thousand bats are missing from the Devetashka cave since our latest count in January when the visible colonies numbered 33,800 bats."
Since production has started, the bat count is down to 8,500. The environment ministry approved the sequel's shoot in the cave, and claim they have found no problems with the bat colonies. However, bat experts such as Dobromir Dobrinov of the Green Balkans nature conservation group, believe filming should have never been allowed to take place in the cave.
"As a protected nature territory and important bat habitat, the cave is only open »
