10 Terminator 2 Facts You Never Knew

10 Terminator 2 Facts You Never Knew
"Have you seen this boy?" In the wake of success for The Terminator, it was hard to imagine how a sequel could up the ante. Yet Terminator 2: Judgment Day did exactly that, with a battle hardened super-ripped Sarah Connor, a rebellious adolescent John, a brand new liquid metal Terminator and an Arnold model programmed to do good. Here we take a look at 10 things you never knew about Terminator 2.

To kill or not to kill.

Arnold originally met with the team behind The Terminator about the role of Kyle Reese. Arnold was looking for heroic leading man roles, not villainous killing machines, but James Cameron coaxed him into playing the T-800 by assuring him that The Terminator would be such a cool character, audiences would root for him. In a fun twist of fate, by the time the sequel rolled around, Arnold had the opposite concern: he was

'The Voice' Season 13 Winner Is Here -- Find Out Who Won!

The Voice has declared its season 13 winner!

Chloe Kohanski took home the top prize during Tuesday night's live results show finale. The 23-year-old rocker from Tennessee was on Team Blake, and it's no surprise that she looked visibly excited and a tiny bit surprised when she was declared the champ.

She also got a massive hug from her coach, Blake Shelton, as confetti fell. The 41-year-old country crooner -- and the only coach besides Adam Levine to be on the show all 13 seasons -- is now a six-time coaching champ.

Congratulations are in order!  The Voice has crowned its newest winner, Chloe Kohanski!  The 23 year-old rocker from Nashville was on Team Blake, meaning that not only is Blake Shelton People's reigning Sexiest Man Alive, but he's also the reigning Voice champ.

The Voice Season 13 Finale Recap: Was the Right Singer Named the Winner?

The Voice Season 13 Finale Recap: Was the Right Singer Named the Winner?
Remember how, as Season 12 of The Voice drew to a close, there was actual suspense about whether Chris Blue or Lauren Duski would be named the winner? Season 13 hasn’t been like that. For what seems like ever, Chloe Kohanski has dominated in both iTunes sales and our weekly TVLine polls. So Tuesday’s results show was really just a long, long wait to hear her victory announced. Unless, that is, we were in for one heck of an upset. (Spoiler alert: We weren’t.) And I know it’s often seemed like I have it in for Chloe; I really don’t.

Stephanie Austin interview: producing Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Ryan Lambie Dec 4, 2017

Co-producer Stephanie Austin talks to us about the trials of bringing one of the biggest movies of all time, Terminator 2, to the screen...

In 1990, producer Stephanie Austin, previously known for her work in television, helped shepherd one of the biggest films of the decade to the big screen. Little did she know at the time, as she first looked through James Cameron's ambitious sequel script, that she would soon be producing the most expensive movie up to that point - a new high-watermark in special effects, and a proving ground for other CGI blockbusters.

Fan favorite Chloe Kohanski “set the bar” on Monday night’s episode of The Voice, at least, according to her coach Blake Shelton.

The Top Uses of Billy Idol Songs in Movies or TV

Born William Michael Albert Broad, Billy Idol was originally part of the band known as Generation X in the 1970’s, but would eventually break out on his own and find his true fame as a solo act in the early 80’s. Thanks to his early success as a solitary musician he eventually became a common face on the popular channel MTV, back when MTV actually still played music almost all the time and didn’t yet know what a reality show was. He kept his career moving steadily forward until around the mid 1990’s when he began to focus more on

Celebrating Tom Petty: Musicians and Celebrities Pay Tribute

Celebrating Tom Petty: Musicians and Celebrities Pay Tribute
Tom Petty passed away at the age of 66 today after going into cardiac arrest late Sunday night. Petty was one of the last great surviving songwriters of our time and the world is mourning right now, with many taking to social media to pay tribute to Petty. It's hard to think of a time when Tom Petty wasn't cool, he was always like the really awesome uncle that you had, but never got to hang out with. His voice spoke to generations; helping people mend broken hearts as teenagers all the way to dealing with mortality later in life.

Johnny Cash once told the humble Petty that, "You're a good man to ride the river with," something that Petty never took for granted. Cash then paid ultimate tribute by covering "I Won't Break Down" and turning it into his own song. It doesn't get much better than that, but for Thomas Earl Petty,

Classic Quadrophenia: Pete Townshend Rocks the Met While Revisiting the Who's Mod Opera Masterpiece
What do you get when you strap a full orchestra onto one of the most high octane rock operas in history? You get an instant classic.

Pete Townshend came roaring into New York City’s fabled Metropolitan Opera House at Lincoln Center this weekend with the force of a thousand Gs Scooters as he delivered Classic Quadrophenia—an orchestral reimagining of the Who’s 1973 concept album. Though he contributed acoustic guitar to a handful of songs, the maestro mostly left it to the philharmonic ensemble lead by Robert Ziegler, who also conducted Rachel Fuller’s arrangements on the 2015 studio recording.

Toronto Film Review: ‘The China Hustle’

Toronto Film Review: ‘The China Hustle’
Should Hollywood be in the market for a sequel to “The Big Short,” the continued misbehavior of a corrupt and poorly regulated financial system have provided one. In the wake of the 2008 recession, some investors looking to recoup their losses from the subprime mortgage crisis traded one fraud for another, turning the inflated value of China’s economic boom into another bubble destined to be popped. Jed Rothstein’s wildly entertaining documentary “The China Hustle” blows the lid off another multibillion-dollar heist built on complex financial instruments and a whole lot of smoke and mirrors. Though it resembles the docu-journalism of Alex Gibney films like “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room” — Gibney serves as executive producer here, in fact — Rothstein’s irreverent, can-you-believe-this sense of humor makes the anti-capitalist message go down even easier.

With Gibney, Frank Marshall, and the 2929 Entertainment team of Mark Cuban and Todd Wagner on board, “The China Hustle
