Just last week we brought you the news that the planned Terminator Genisys trilogy was being put on hold indefinitely following the disappointing performance of the film that was intended to kick off that new series of films. Makes perfect sense, we thought. Genisys was not a very good movie and didn’t leave many people, including us, very interested the future of this franchise. But, this is Hollywood and perfect sense doesn’t always apply. Now, Terminator Genisys producer Dana Goldberg has spoken publicly for the first time saying future Terminator movies haven’t been canceled, they’re just being “re-imagined.” Oh great, another reboot!
Okay, so maybe he won’t be back after all.
The fifth season finale of Game of Thrones left both viewers and readers in the lurch, finishing the extent of published storylines for characters like Daenerys and Jon Snow. We certainly had an inkling of who next Daenerys might align with, but leaked photos from the Season 6 set seem to spoil at least one major plot point of Dany’s next storyline.
Just the other day, Game of Thrones favorite Emilia Clarke offered some surprising comments on her distaste for any and all sex scenes, not necessarily just those on HBO. Her words made the rounds a bit, but now the Khaleesi seems to be walking them back, claiming to be “perfectly fine” with tasteful nudity. Oh, the internet.
For as long as Game of Thrones has aired (and will surely continue until Season 8), the HBO adaptation courts controversy in its depiction of sex and violence, from a number of directions. Some stars have even spoken out of their distaste for the show’s visceral style, but perhaps none so directly as star Emilia Clarke, who “[doesn’t] want to have sex thrown in my face.”
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.
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.
There is a whole lot of unpleasant violence on Game of Thrones, which makes you wonder how the actors might cope with those intense scenes on set. Emilia Clarke (along with Arnold Schwarzenegger) recently appeared on BBC's Graham Norton Show to discuss Terminator Genisys, but she also took some time out from promoting that film to talk about her role on Game of Thrones — and the special way Jason Momoa lightened the mood on set.
Game of Thrones Season 5 has come to the close of its most brutal season yet, dispensing precious little “Mother’s Mercy” on any of its core characters. Major, major characters suffered the pointy end of a blade, while others met surprise ends, stripped away their sins, or made a surprise return. Find out every character’s fate by our full review!
It’s that time again, as Game of Thrones has murdered its way through another 9 episodes, leaving us with Sunday Season 5 finale “Mother’s Mercy.” HBO would be hard-pressed to top this past weekend’s climactic “Dance of Dragons,” but what do the full set of finale photos reveal about Daenerys’ whereabouts?
