Once upon a time, the evil computer program Skynet sent a killer cyborg called a Terminator back in time to kill Sarah Connor, the mother of the future leader of the human resistance in the war against the machines. When that failed, it sent a more advanced robot back in time to execute the young John Connor, but old John Connor sent back another robot to protect his younger self. And it only got crazier from there. Pretty soon, there were all kinds of flesh-covered robots floating around two separate timelines and it all got very confusing. Thankfully, we’re here to rank all of those time traveling robots so you don’t have to. Come with us if you want to rank fictional cyborgs.
The best scene in Terminator Genisys arrives early. Director Alan Taylor painstakingly recreates the opening scenes of James Cameron’s The Terminator, from the arrival of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s killer cyborg to the infamous moment when he confronts a group of ruffians for a change of clothes. And then something weird happens: another Terminator, also played by Schwarzenegger, shows up to fight his counterpart to the death. It’s a cool scene and its creators have divulged exactly how they pulled it off.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has you fooled. He’s convinced you he’s nothing more than a catchphrase generator. A bodybuilder, not a brainiac. A nostalgia act trapped in the past.
We’ve been hearing about the Twins sequel for a long time now, but it’s been a while since we’ve gotten an update. Josh Gad was hired to write the screenplay, but back in January the writer and actor said that Universal had put the project on hold for the time being — even though everyone loves the script. “Everyone” also apparently includes Eddie Murphy, as Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed that his potential co-star is thrilled with the idea for Triplets.
If you want to understand modern Hollywood and how it’s evolved over the last 30 years, all you need to do is look at the contrast between 1984’s The Terminator and 2015’s Terminator Genisys.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has just chosen his follow-up to Terminator Genisys, and it sounds like a great one: the actor-turned-Governor-turned-actor will star in the new revenge drama 478, scripted by the writer of Denis Villeneuve’s Enemy. This will not be your average revenge film, but then again, Schwarzenegger isn’t your average star.
You’ve still got to wait until next month to see Terminator Genisys. But you can check out a big chunk of the movie right now, at least in still form, as Paramount unveiled well over 50 new stills and behind-the-scenes shots of the movie. They’re all collected in the gallery above.
Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return to the movies after his stint as governor of California has been filled with ups and downs, good films and bad. But one thing has remained consistent – the living legend has started showcasing a savvy online presence and a self-aware sense of humor that has re-endeared him to the digital world. Now, he’s combined all of that into a YouTube video that, while it exists solely to promote a charity, is more entertaining than any of the Terminator Genisys trailers so far.
It’s the kind of news that might elicit one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s signature yells: not only is there a remake of Kindergarten Cop in the works, but it might also become a TV series, if we’re not careful. Let’s be careful, okay?
The Lost World: Jurassic Park is not a good movie. It might be Steven Spielberg’s worst movie, depending on how you feel about 1941and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It’s a pale imitation of its successor, with a dopey story, dopier characters (“Hey my shirt is drenched in infant T. Rex blood, and I know they can track scents incredibly well because I’m a brilliant paleontologist, but I’m just going to keep wearing it anyway!”), inferior special effects, none of the sense of wonder that made Jurassic Park a generational touchstone. It’s not even as good as Jurassic Park III (and Jurassic Park III ain’t exactly Jurassic Park 1 either).
