The Terminator is having a bad day. It's a muggy July afternoon in New Orleans—the temperature is loitering in the triple digits—and Arnold Schwarzenegger is inside a giant warehouse on the grounds of Nasa's Michoud Assembly Facility. Suited up in a black leather jacket with green-painted latex obscuring most of the right side of his face, he is again playing the indelible robot that solidified his place in Hollywood some 30 years ago. So far today the former governor of California has been stepped on and forced to crawl on the ground, and now, as he gasps for breath fighting his opponent, »

From a newcomer award at the Deauville Film Festival in 2011 to a career tribute this fall, two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain has come a long way in just three years. This year, she has been a part of four films: Christopher Nolan’s potential best picture nominee Interstellar, which opens in select theaters Nov. 5; J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which is opening AFI Fest Nov. 6; Liv Ullmann’s Miss Julie, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival; and Ned Benson’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and is a combination of 2013’s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Her and The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Him.
After graduating from Juilliard in 2003, Chastain was plucked from relative obscurity by Al Pacino to star in his production of Salome at Los Angeles’ Wadsworth Theatre in 2006. Pacino chronicles »

“I’ll be back.” Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg warrior will make good on that promise next summer when Paramount unleashes Terminator: Genisys to theaters. While familiar characters like Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese will be played by new faces, Arnold brings his stalwart screen presence to the franchise’s next chapter, as mentioned in the film’s recently revealed plot details accompanied by new photos.
In their first look at the next installment of the Terminator franchise, EW debuted a photo of Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor with Jai Courtney’s Kyle Reese on a motorcycle and another picture featuring Jason Clarke’s John Connor next to Matt Smith (Doctor Who) with the T-800 endoskeleton lurking behind them.

Recent events in America and the world at large have provided plenty of fodder for Hollywood adaptation. There have been movies about everything from hunting Osama Bin Laden in Zero Dark Thirty to the Valerie Plame scandal to weird biopics about George W. Bush. But it has been awhile since we had a good movie about scandal in America’s press corps. That gap will be filled with Truth, a movie about the scandal that eventually got Dan Rather in serious trouble with CBS.
Truth is based on the memoir by Mary Mapes and concerns the public brouhaha in 2004 following a CBS report that George W. Bush received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War. The documents the report was based on were suspected of being forgeries. The upshot of the scandal resulted in serious damage to Rather’s reputation and the firing of his producer Mapes. »

Written and Directed by Ned Benson.
One couple’s story as they try to reclaim the life and love they once knew and pick up the pieces of a past that may be too far gone.
For those who prefer their romantic films to be sappy, cheesy, mushy, schmaltzy, written by Nicholas Sparks or Stephanie Meyer be warned: The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: Them may not tickle your taste buds. Not because it’s a bad film by any means, far from it, but because Ned Benson’s tale of love and loss in New York may well put you off rom-coms for good, and make you reassess everything you know and love about the genre.
Somewhat strangely, Eleanor Rigby is a film »

Jessica Chastain stole the spotlight at the "Interstellar" premiere in Hollywood, Calif. on Sunday night.The 37-year-old actress took a bold fashion risk in a backless black Givenchy Couture dress, which featured a thigh-high slit and sheer lace lining. The gown was quite unassuming from the front, but it got a lot more interesting as the see-through panels on the sides and deep back were revealed! Costars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway joined the red-haired beauty on the red carpet to promote the Christopher Nolan-directed film. "Interstellar" follows "a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage."The "Zero Dark Thirty" star recently opened up about taking part in the film. "I believe that we're all connected. Not just in this moment but in every moment," she told The Hollywood Reporter. »

Tracks and Wild are adapted from memoirs about women who venture on thousand-mile journeys and Gone Girl is an adaptation of a fictional novel, but all three films center around women and all three books were written by women.
These female-centric stories resonate more with women and often do well at the box office, Gone Girl opened number one at the box office and led for two weeks until Fury opened Oct. 17, but can they be propelled to Oscar nominations, especially with Academy voters being overwhelmingly (76 percent) male?
Of the 92 best picture Oscar nominees since 2000, 16 are female-driven (excluding 2002’s Chicago, which has an ensemble cast, and films where men and women have fairly equal roles). Only one of these films, 2004’s Million Dollar Baby, actually won. Of the other 16 — 2001’s Erin Brockovich, 2002’s The Hours, 2006’s The Queen, 2007’s Juno, 2008’s The Reader, 2009’s The Blind Side, »

To infinity and beyond goes “Interstellar,” an exhilarating slalom through the wormholes of Christopher Nolan’s vast imagination that is at once a science-geek fever dream and a formidable consideration of what makes us human. As visually and conceptually audacious as anything Nolan has yet done, the director’s ninth feature also proves more emotionally accessible than his coolly cerebral thrillers and Batman movies, touching on such eternal themes as the sacrifices parents make for their children (and vice versa) and the world we will leave for the next generation to inherit. An enormous undertaking that, like all the director’s best work, manages to feel handcrafted and intensely personal, “Interstellar” reaffirms Nolan as the premier big-canvas storyteller of his generation, more than earning its place alongside “The Wizard of Oz,” “2001,” “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” and “Gravity” in the canon of Hollywood’s visionary sci-fi head trips.

He described Star Wars as his "first film love".
"Gareth is doing a standalone film," Fraser told Hitfix. "Of course I do know some specifics, but it's obviously something I've signed my kidneys away for.
"I can't tell you what it's about," he continued. "I think I signed my left kidney to Disney and my right kidney to George Lucas.
"So I'd hate to be talking to you next time when I'm on dialysis."
Fraser added that he has not deliberately set out to do "big films".
Edwards's Star Wars film is expected to begin shooting in 2015. »
At this point, we know next to nothing about Disney’s first standalone Star Wars movie, save for the fact that Monsters and Godzilla director Gareth Edwards is helming the project for a 2016 release. Well, we can now add in a cinematographer, with Greig Fraser revealing to Hitfix that he will be shooting the film.
“I’m doing a f*cking Star Wars movie, which is like – I don’t know about you but Star Wars is like my first film love, do you know what I mean?” states Fraser, whose credits include Zero Dark Thirty, Let Me In, Snow White and the Huntsman, Foxcatcher and The Gambler. “Princess Leia was the first woman that I kind of went, ‘Yeah, she’s all right, that one.’ Gareth is doing a standalone film. Of course I do know some specifics, but it’s obviously something I’ve signed my kidneys away for. »

Much of the media cycle may be devoted to rumors and speculation surrounding J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, but that’s not the only trip moviegoers will be taking to the beloved galaxy far, far away in the next few years. In fact, we’ll be getting one Star Wars movie a year after 2015, and the first film out the gate after Abrams’ franchise revamp is Gareth Edwards’ mysterious spinoff, which is slated for 2016.
Edwards has already brought The Book of Eli scribe Gary Whitta on board to help pen the script, and has now found another crucial crew member to help him out: Foxcatcher and Zero Dark Thirty cinematographer Greig Fraser.
Fraser announced the news himself today while speaking with HitFix about his stellar resume and extremely busy schedule. As would be expected, he’s extremely excited about working on a Star Wars movie, but was unfortunately pretty »

Abu Dhabi’s Image Nation is delving into documentary production with pics on strong societal topics, such as “Every Last Child,” pictured above, by U.K. director Tom Roberts, which examines efforts to fight the polio epidemic in Pakistan, where the Taliban have imposed a ban on the vaccine. “Child” is set to have its world premiere at the Doc NYC fest in November.
The first Image Nation doc out of the gate is “As One: The Autism Project,” a joint effort between Emirati director Hana Makki and Tricia Regan (“Autism: The Musical”), which will launch Saturday at the Abu Dhabi fest with a red carpet gala. It’s about how the UAE’s multi-ethnic society is contending with autism, which in the Arab world, is viewed by some as a shameful condition.
“The (documentary) division was started to tackle issue that are important locally and also globally,” said Image Nation’s Danielle Perissi, »

With Star Wars: Episode VII deep into production, Disney and LucasFilm are also prepping their Star Wars spin-off movies, the first of which will hit theaters sometime in 2016, under the direction of Gareth Edwards (Godzilla).

While he wouldn't divulge any specific details, here's what Greig Fraser had to say about the project.
"And then I'm doing a f---ing Star Wars movie, which is like - I don't know about you but Star Wars is like my first film love, do you know what I mean? Gareth is doing a standalone film. Of course I do know some specifics, but it's obviously something I've signed my kidneys away for."

Multiple reports surfaced Friday that Warner Bros. was angling for a female filmmaker to direct Gal Gadot in “Wonder Woman,” which is slated for 2017. The obvious choice might be Kathryn Bigelow (“Zero Dark Thirty”), as she's the only woman to ever win a directing Oscar, but she's far from the only qualified candidate. See photos: 19 Best and Worst Superheroes to Hit TV: What's Flown? What's Blown?
