Films We’re Most Excited to See at CinemaCon 2019

Since 2011, CinemaCon has become arguably the biggest and best event in the USA for showcasing upcoming Hollywood productions, as well as bringing together actors, directors, theatre owners and media members from across the world. Taking place at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, CinemaCon 2019 will happen from 1st to 4th April and is bound to be another marvelous and unforgettable event.

By now, it has become commonplace to present either some footage or the entire movie at this prestigious occasion (sometimes without visual effects completed), but it also means that the film is opened up to either good or bad press. Despite this, studios jump at the chance to create a bit of buzz long before the movie’s release date. As we already know what big movies will arrive in 2019, here’s a look at some that we’re most enthusiastic about seeing.

Review: Halloween is Like The Terminator 2 of Horror Movies

The Halloween franchise has made a big and exciting comeback with a new sequel from director David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride. John Carpenter was also a creative consultant on the film who also provided the wonderfully creepy musical score. Carpenter has said several times that he’s really happy with how the new Halloween film turned out and has said that it will scare the shit out of audiences.

So does the film live up to the expectations that have been set? Hell yeah, it does! All of those reviews that you’ve read praising the film were right on the money. As a long time fan of the Halloween franchise, I loved it! It’s easily the best sequel that has been made in the franchise.

Is the film better than the original film? Of course not! That’s a silly question. The original is a horror masterpiece,

Harrison Ford Replaces Alden Ehrenreich in Incredible Solo Deepfake Video

Harrison Ford Replaces Alden Ehrenreich in Incredible Solo Deepfake Video
Deep Learning AI technology puts Harrison Ford in the lead role of Solo. The latest Star Wars spin-off failed to meet box office expectations and sent Disney back to the drawing board to rethink their output of the legendary franchise. However, the movie has since been seen in a better light now that it's out on Blu-ray and available to stream digitally. The spin-off is a lot of fun, and a new digital edit has taken a few scenes and made them even better by replacing Alden Ehrenreich with Harrison Ford.

Seeing Harrison Ford in Solo is a bit off-putting, mainly because it looks excellent. The Deep Learning technology isn't perfect when dealing with scenes that have darker lighting, but when it works, it's pretty incredible. Seeing Ford with the voice of Alden Ehrenreich is a little jarring, but you get used to it, even in the short clip that

Halloween Review #2: Jamie Lee Curtis Rises Above This Tired Slasher Flick

Halloween Review #2: Jamie Lee Curtis Rises Above This Tired Slasher Flick
Forty years have passed since Michael Myers made mincemeat of hapless babysitters. Halloween is the eleventh film in the franchise, but a direct sequel to the horror classic. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, but she isn't running scared this time around. Director David Gordon Green stokes the primal fears and elemental characters that birthed the slasher genre. If only he had kept that initial creative momentum. Halloween succumbs to the same tired tropes we've seen countless times before.

Serial killer Michael Myers hasn't uttered a single word during his four decade incarceration at a sanitarium. Two intrepid true crime reporters attempt an interview before his relocation to a more secure facility. They bring his terrifying mask; hoping to elicit some kind of reaction. He doesn't move a muscle.

The reporters next stop is to interview the survivor. Laurie Strode lives secluded in the remote woods. Her house is a tactical fortress.

Halloween Gun Rights Controversy Has Jamie Lee Curtis Sounding Off

Halloween Gun Rights Controversy Has Jamie Lee Curtis Sounding Off
Jamie Lee Curtis has responded to the Fox News article calling her a hypocrite for using guns in the new Halloween movie. Curtis is an avid gun control activist, and has spoken out about her views on the hot button topic many times in public over the years. The original article calls Curtis' Laurie Strode character out for "wielding firearms" to protect herself from the murderous Michael Myers. The article went on to make the argument that actors who are gun control activists shouldn't be able to use guns in their films.

Jamie Lee Curtis has been very vocal about gun control in the United States, but wishes that Fox News would have contacted her first before running their story. While Curtis is for gun control, some of her beliefs on the subject might come off as surprising for gun enthusiasts who believe that she wants all guns taken away.

The Flash with its Season 5 premiere introduced us (as well as Barry and Iris!) to grown-up Nora West-Allen — as well as revealed a dark truth the future speedster came bearing.

In Nora’s voiceover intro, we learn that she hails from 30 years into the future, where as the superhero “Xs” (thanks for the nickname, Mom!) she is regarded as “the guardian of Central City” (James Olsen’s trademark lawsuit pending). There, she spends every day living up to the legacy of her dad, The Flash.

Alas, Nora reports to Team Flash, she made a “big mistake” in helping Dad destroy The Thinker’s satellite,

The Predator Review #2: A Big, Fun, Gory Mess
After laying dormant for the better part of a decade, one of the great sci-fi franchises has returned. Director Shane Black was the man tasked with reviving the famed hunters with The Predator. So, how did he do? Well, it would be very fair to say that Black has crafted an entertaining movie that is very much on-brand for what he does and suits his sensibilities as a filmmaker. That said, the final product is also a complete and utter mess that ends up being quite a blast, almost despite itself. It's a mixed bag situation.

The movie kicks off with a Predator crash-landing on Earth. An unlucky soldier by the name of Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook) who was just doing his job happens to witness the whole thing. He rightfully assumes nobody will believe him and decides to secure some proof. That turns out to be a decision that comes with consequences.

Kevin Feige Says Captain Marvel’s Inspired By Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Besides making everyone over thirty feel old, Captain Marvel‘s retro 1990s setting is set to influence the look and style of the movie. That’s according to Marvel Studios head honcho and brainchild of the McU Kevin Feige, who explained in an interview with Total Film that they’re looking to the stone-cold classics of 90s action cinema for inspiration, saying: “These are definitely homages to our favorite 90s action films.”

He then went on to narrow it down even further, explaining that the style of James Cameron’s 1991 Terminator 2: Judgment Day is what they’re hoping to achieve, particularly the “cool street-level fights and car chases.” Somewhat confusingly, he also stated that the majority of the movie will be set in space, which is pretty much the exact opposite of “street level.” Oh well, maybe they’ll be gritty space streets.

It’s worth thinking about what exactly 90s action consisted of.

First Look at Linda Hamilton and Mackenzie Davis in 'Terminator' Reboot

First Look at Linda Hamilton and Mackenzie Davis in 'Terminator' Reboot
Linda Hamilton is reprising her role as iconic character Sarah Connor in the upcoming 'Terminator' sequel and the first official photo has been released.

The image shows Hamilton as the battle-hardened character who fought the machines in 1984's 'The Terminator,' 1991's 'Terminator 2,' and 1996 theme park ride 'T2 3-D: Battle Across Time.'

Not involved with the subsequent sequels, Hamilton is back for the 'Untitled Terminator Reboot,' which will see original director James Cameron return as producer. 'Deadpool' director Tim Miller will helm the sixth movie in the franchise.

In the film, now in production, Arnold Schwarzenegger will continue his streak of appearing in every installment of the killer robot series. But the new photo also provides our first look at two more characters.

Natalia Reyes is shown as Dani Ramos, who's understood to be the film’s lead. She plays a young woman in Mexico City who gets caught in the war when the machines rise.

Also shown is Mackenzie Davis, who is no stranger to science fiction, having appeared in 'Blade Runner 2049,' 'The Martian,' and an Emmy Award-winning episode of "Black Mirror," titled "San Junipero."

Little is known of Davis' character, but it was revealed today that she is simply known as Grace. A series of marks on her arms and upper body suggest the character may have some secrets below the surface.

We'll have to wait more than a year to find out the answers. The movie is due for release Nov. 22, 2019.

Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes Are The Bad Ass Women Of New Terminator Movie

Here’s your official first look at the Women of the New Terminator (from left to right) Natalia Reyes as “Dani Ramos,” Mackenzie Davis as “Grace,” Linda Hamilton as “Sarah Connor” from Skydance Productions and Paramount Pictures.

The highly anticipated film is directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and stars Arnold Schwarzenegger , Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, Diego Boneta and Linda Hamilton.

The untitled, in-production sequel to James Cameron’s original Terminator films will open in U.S. theatres on November 22, 2019.

Hamilton starred in the original 1984 sci-fi film alongside Schwarzenegger and Michael Biehn. It was co-written and produced by Gale Anne Hurd. Cameron and Hurd made other films such as Aliens and The Abyss.

The sequel Terminator 2 was released in 1991 and was a huge success at the box office. There were several chapters of the franchise as well as TV show “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”.

Film Academy Challenges Fans to Sum Up Movies in Five Words, Succinct Hilarity Ensues

  • The Wrap
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences sent out a call for five-word movie summaries on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon. And thousands of people responded — including “Terminator” star and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Share the plot of your favorite movie in five words.

— The Academy (@TheAcademy) July 31, 2018

It’s a refreshingly off-brand idea from the Academy, being a hell of a lot more succinct than the typical Oscar acceptance speech, and the responses have been pretty fun and often very clever. For instance, Schwarzenegger, who not surprisingly picked the plot of his career-defining hits “The Terminator” and “Terminator 2.”

Terminator 6 is currently filming in Kom&#225rom, Hungary and we now have a short behind-the-scenes clip that features a helicopter taking off, possibly to escape. Production on the sixth installment in the franchise was previously shooting in Spain, which is where the car chase scene was filmed that leaked online a few weeks back. Information about Terminator 6 has been scarce, but it will erase everything that came after Terminator 2: Judgement Day. James Cameron is back on board producing, so fans of the franchise are hoping to see a long awaited return to form for the franchise.

The new Terminator 6 leaked set video takes place in the evening and we see a helicopter taking off and then pulling a sharp turn. With the way that the helicopter is moving, it looks like it could be an escape scene. There are 3 people seen in the chopper, but it's unclear who it is,

4K Blu-ray Review – Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991)

Terminator 2: Judgment Day, 1991.

Directed by James Cameron.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick, and Edward Furlong.

Synopsis:

Terminator 2 is available for the 1,000th time on home video in a 4K edition that also includes a Blu-ray disc and a code for a digital copy. If you’re not a fan of the digital scrubbing that removes film grain but also gives a somewhat plastic look to a movie, you may want to avoid this one. The bonus features are recycled except a new 54-minute look back at the making of the movie.

You’ve seen this one already, right? If not, I recommend you book a double feature tonight with The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day. However, if you’ve upgraded to a 4K world, you might want to pass on this release – more on that in a moment.)

Terminator 2 is one of those sequels
