'Predator' is not only one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best movies, it's one of the best sci-fi/action movies of all time, putting the musclebound action hero up against an unstoppable alien hunter. The design of the Predator is so iconic and the overall film's reputation so strong that many people don't realize that this was originally a very different movie. So different that Jean-Claude Van Damme was originally supposed to play the alien bad guy!
Call us suckers, but going by the new trailer for 'The Expendables 3,' we think this may be the one that finally gets it right. Both 'The Expendables' and 'The Expendables 2' were well-meaning but sloppy nostalgia exercises, but we're hoping that the third time is the charm and that this one will be a well-meaning and actually entertaining nostalgia exercise.
The 'Expendables' franchise has one thing going for it: nothing else can top it when it comes to the sheer number of interesting and noteworthy actors on screen. So it's not too surprising when 'The Expendables 3' drops 16 character posters on the same day because of course 'The Expendables 3' would have 16 characters important enough to warrant their own character posters.
If it bleeds, we can kill it. You'll be able to put that line to the test as The Predator becomes available in 'Call of Duty: Ghosts' as part of the new "Devastation Map Pack" released by Infinity Ward.
In the Drug Enforcement Administration of 'Sabotage,' there's an elite task force comprised of douchebags, jackasses, bullies and morally reprehensible goons. They're thrown the tough assignments; When a drug cartel kingpin needs to be brought to justice, John Breacher (Arnold Schwarzenegger) and his crew of hot-tempered, maladjusted soldiers storm his suburban fortress, pop two in his head, and beeline to the nearest dive bar for one-dollar Budweisers. When an unknown assailant starts picking them off one-by-one, it's hard to feel too bad for the band of brosefs.
With Arnold returning to the screen with 'Sabotage,' it's time to revisit his career. It's time to reevaluate the bombs and celebrate the classics. It's time to rank all of Schwarzenegger's films from worst to best.
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!
