We have no idea what to make of 'Terminator 5,' which is apparently going to function as both a sequel to the other four films in the franchise and a reboot, putting the series on course for a new trilogy of time traveling cyborg adventures. However, there is one man out there who can shed light on all of this: the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is returning to the role that made him famous despite being able to order from the senior citizen menu at restaurants.
Nearly thirty years ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger read a script. In that script - for the action classic 'Predator' - there was a single line. A simple demand. A request screamed in heat of battle. "Get to the chopper!" Perhaps Arnold considered his options. His inflections. How much desperation he would put into it. Should the emphasis be on the "get" or on "chopper"? There were too many options. Yet, he still picked the best one, resulting in an instant classic catchphrase: "Get to the choppa!!"
When Arnold Schwarzenegger is not smashing pee-ah-nos and taxi cabs with his tank, he's leading a group of gun-toting misfits on action-packed adventures. This time around, as previewed in our exclusive TV spot for his latest flick, 'Sabotage,' Arnold takes the form of a DEA task force leader who must figure out who is killing off members of his team and kidnapped his wife!
Who knew that Arnold Schwarzenegger's dream in life was to own a tank and crush things? It wasn't becoming one of the most iconic action movie stars of all time. It was this, and now his dream has come true ... and perhaps yours, as well! Find out how you too can crush things with Schwarzenegger's tank and support a charity at the same time.
With production on the new 'Terminator' reboot set to begin this April and original Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger set to make his return, we've been anxious to hear more details -- and while we still don't know any specifics, we know this: Schwarzenegger himself has seen the script for the film, and he definitely approves.
Since its inception, movies have starred the beautiful people. Young people. The kind of people you simply wouldn't see on every street corner. It's such a Hollywood cliche to discuss the film industry chewing up young stars and spitting them back out once they start to get up there in years, but it's only a cliche because it's happened enough times to take on truth.
But, there have been times in cinematic history where youth and beauty have taken a backseat to age age and experience. Every so often, we stop caring about traditional movie stars and start embracing something the folks who look like they've taken a beating. Sometimes, the older folks start to take over the spotlight and right now, we're living in the age of the Old Man Action Hero.
But why now?
In his heyday, Arnold Schwarzenegger tended to star in incredibly violent movies where he played straight-shooting, morally black and white heroes. So it's weird to watch him in the red band trailer for 'Sabotage,' which casts him as a morally grey character straight out of director David Ayer's 'Training Day' playbook.
In 1997, Joel Schumacher released 'Batman and Robin,' his follow-up to 'Batman Forever,' starring George Clooney as the caped crusader. That time around, Batman teamed up with Robin and Batgirl to stop villains Mr. Freeze (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and Poison Ivy (Uma Thurman) from freezing the world and repopulating it with mutant plants (yes, really). Although the film was a massive success, it garnered many negative reviews and is considered to be one of the worst Batman films ever made. Seventeen years later, we take a look back at the cast of the strange '90s superhero film and see where they are now.
In 1991, James Cameron unleashed 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day,' his follow-up to 'The Terminator,' in which Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor and her son John teamed up with a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to fight off an advanced machine sent back in time to kill them because they were society's only hope for salvation. The film was a massive success and even won four Academy Awards, including statues for Best Visual Effects and Makeup. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of this action-packed sci-fi classic and see what they're up to now.
For the past week, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been teasing his involvement in a Super Bowl commercial and now it has arrived. Clocking in at nearly four minutes, this extended version of the ad is much longer than what will air this Sunday and, by extension, features a few additional precious seconds of everyone's favorite Austrian bodybuilder-movie-star-turned-politician-turned-movie-star-wearing-a-silly-wig playing table tennis.
