'Terminator Genisys' trailer unveiled: Everything's changed, except the things that haven't

The original Terminator was a notoriously low-budget affair that filmed mostly at night to keep costs down. That darkly-lit aesthetic became a signature of James Cameron’s franchise—and it’s immediately apparent that Terminator: Genisys director Alan Taylor wants to get back to that look.

In fact, everything about the first full trailer evokes the texture and feel of the first film, from the 1984 setting to the slightly similar relationships, which are skewed by a ripple in the space-time continuum that left an orphaned Sarah Connor to be raised by the original Terminator. “The time John sent you to, it no longer exists,” Sarah (Emilia Clarke) tells Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney). “Everything’s changed.”

Well… some things have changed. Throw in a few familiar catchphrases and a new liquid-metal T-1000 (Byung-Hun Lee) dressed in blue, and it’s as much an homage to Cameron’s films as it is a sequel. I’m fine with that. READ FULL STORY

Look! Quick! Things we love about the 'Terminator' movies!

Genisys

There are teaser trailers and then there are teeeaser trailers. The new clip for Terminator Genisys released in advance of tomorrow’s trailer launch is more of the latter. There’s the bulletproof liquid metal that evokes the unstoppable T-1000. There’s the view from space as ballistic nukes explode all over the globe. And there’s the original Terminator himself, flexing his robotic left hand. (It’s almost like someone went back in time and Rise of the Machines and Salvation never happened.)

Enjoy just a mere taste. READ FULL STORY

Children of the Revolution: An exclusive first look at 'Terminator: Genisys'

The Terminator is having a bad day. It’s a muggy July afternoon in New Orleans—the temperature is loitering in the triple digits—and Arnold Schwarzenegger is inside a giant warehouse on the grounds of NASA’s Michoud Assembly Facility. Suited up in a black leather jacket with green-painted latex obscuring most of the right side of his face, he is again playing the indelible robot that solidified his place in Hollywood some 30 years ago. So far today the former governor of California has been stepped on and forced to crawl on the ground, and now, as he gasps for breath fighting his opponent, he’s about to get transported to a different time—which, if you know ­anything about Terminator mythology, is a very bad thing. Especially if your metal endoskeleton is showing. READ FULL STORY

Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie thriller 'Maggie' gets U.S. distribution

In the genre-subverting apocalyptic thriller Maggie, which Lionsgate just acquired  for North American distribution, Arnold Schwarzenegger stars as a father grappling with his daughter’s imminent zombie-ness.

John Scott 3’s Black List script imagines a world overtaken by a zombie virus, but focuses the trauma on the relationship between a father and his daughter (Abigail Breslin) as she slowly devolves into one of the cannibalistic undead. Henry Hobson, whose main credits are for designing title sequences for video games, television shows, and films such as The Help and The Walking Dead, directed the film, which also stars Joely Richardson.

Maggie has all the ingredients that spell commercial excitement—a compelling script and an ‘A’ list superstar surrounded by a world-class cast,” said Lionsgate’s Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President Steve Beeks. “We’re delighted to continue our relationship with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who turns in a performance that marks a dramatic departure from his action persona, and partner with our friends at Lotus Entertainment on a film that will resonate with thriller aficionados everywhere.”

Lotus co-chairs Bill Johnson and Jim Seibel, who produced and will handle international sales, added: “Maggie takes the zombie genre in exciting new directions, and it offers something for everyone—star power, horror, suspense, and riveting performances that will keep moviegoers on the edge of their seats.”

Maggie does not have a set release date yet, but it’s expected to arrive in theaters in early 2015.

Adam Sandler, Kristen Wiig, and Arnold Schwarzenegger bring films to Toronto

The 2014 Toronto Film Festival, which begins Sept. 4, added seven Galas and 17 Special Presentations to its lineup, including a semi-serious Adam Sandler project from Tom McCarthy, the director of The Station Agent and The Visitor. In The Cobbler, Sandler plays a man who has the unique ability to walk in his customers’ shoes. The movie features Dustin Hoffman, who also stars in Boychoir, François Girard’s tale of an orphan’s steep learning curve at a prestigious music school. In Welcome to Me, Kristen Wiig plays a mentally unstable woman who wins the lottery and decides to sink her winnings into a talk show.

Toronto is one of the major launching pads for awards season and a market for 2015 acquisitions. Last year, Dallas Buyers Club was one of TIFF’s world premieres that rocketed into the Oscar race, and this year’s slate already includes potential contenders like Foxcatcher, Wild, and The Theory of Everything.

An orphaned 12-year-old boy is sent to prestigious music school where he struggles to join an elite group of world-class singers. No one expects this rebellious loner to succeed, least of all the school’s relentlessly-tough conductor who wages a battle of wills to bring out the boy’s extraordinary musical gift.
Starring Dustin Hoffman, Kathy Bates, Josh Lucas, Kevin McHale, Eddie Izzard, Debra Winger and Garrett Wareing READ FULL STORY

Arnold Schwarzenegger reveals name of fifth 'Terminator' film

On July 1st, 2015, he’ll be back. Finally?

While not much is known about the fifth Terminator movie yet, one thing that has been certain is Arnold Schwarzenegger’s return to the series that made him a household name. With the shoot now wrapped up, Schwarzenegger took the time to post a quick photo to his Instagram feed that revealed the title of the movie: Terminator: Genisys.

Genisys. Yes, Terminator: Genisys.

That’s never going to not look weird.


 

O.J. Simpson almost played the Terminator

O. J. Simpson as the Terminator?

In EW’s oral history of the 1984 sci-fi classic, director James Cameron recalls his reaction when Orion Pictures proposed the retired NFL superstar as the lethal killing machine from the future. “[Orion chief Mike] Medavoy came to me and [producer Gale Anne Hurd] and he said, ‘Are you sitting down? You must sit down. I want O.J. Simpson for the Terminator. Gale and I just looked at each other and thought, ‘You’ve got to be f- - -ing kidding me. How do we get out of this?” READ FULL STORY

'The Terminator' at 30: An oral history

Thirty years ago, a killing machine from 2029—assuming the form of an Austrian bodybuilder—arrived with a lethal directive to alter the future. That he certainly did. The Terminator, made for $6.4 million by a couple of young disciples of B-movie king Roger Corman, became one of the defining sci-fi touchstones of all time. Its $38 million gross placed it outside of the top-20 box-office releases for 1984, yet the film grew into a phenomenon, spawning a five-picture franchise that’s taken in $1.4 billion to date and securing a place on the National Film Registry, which dubbed it “among the finest science-fiction films in many decades.”

The movie launched the career of James Cameron, who went on to direct the top two box-office earners of all time, Avatar and Titanic. It also boosted Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose monotone delivery and muscle-bound swagger made a cyborg assassin the height of cool. The actor, now filming next summer’s Terminator: Genesis in New Orleans, took a break to reminisce about his most indelible role. Settling for a landline call after four failed attempts to FaceTime—the former California governor’s favorite mode of communication—Schwarzenegger quipped, “Obviously we need James Cameron to provide the technology to link us.” His Terminator comrades also shared their memories via phone—just like it was 1984 again.

'Sabotage': Joe Manganiello talks new trailer (and not being recognized in a strip club scene) -- EXCLUSIVE

Sabotage.jpg

In Sabotage, the gritty new movie from End of Watch writer/director David Ayer hitting theaters March 28, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, Prisoners‘ Terrence Howard, True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello, and The Killing‘s Mireille Enos star as members of a badass DEA task force who find themselves on a Mexican cartel’s hit list after $10 million goes missing in a bust. Check out our exclusive debut of the new trailer below.

Manganiello sees a certain horror movie structure to the film in that the team members are being hunted down one by one. And if you also watch the red band trailer, you’ll see there’s just as much blood. “David Ayer likes it dark, he likes it nasty,” Manganiello says. “[But] the violence in the movie is taken from what’s actually going in that world. The things that are done to people are gruesome and scary.”

Ayer encourages actors to bring something to the plate on set, and after spending about four months alongside real-life DEA agents as research, Manganiello literally had a notebook full of material. Hence him improvising a quip — “Clean-up, aisle three” — heard in the trailer. “That line is in response to a SWAT officer showing up on the scene and finding that we’ve now made a mess in his jurisdiction,” he says. “So I have this whole notebook full of sayings that these cops that I worked alongside and observed would say to each other, and a lot of them were dealing with the fact that when local cops and federal agents show up and there’s a shootout, the federal agents are allowed to leave the mess. They can get into a huge gunfight and just jump in their cars and take off, and then the locals are left to clean up.” READ FULL STORY

'The Expendables 3' teaser trailer packs a punch -- VIDEO

expendables-3-trailer.jpg

What this trailer lacks in actual action it makes up for in the sheer power of name recognition: Stallone, Statham, Li, Schwarzenegger, Banderas, Snipes, Gibson, Ford, and so on, and so on, forever and ever.

Set to the “Colonel Bogey March,” you’ve got to admit, this 56-second trailer packs a punch, and most of it is just a bunch of jacked dudes’ backs. Like Ocean’s Thirteen before it, an already stacked cast continues to expand exponentially in this third Expendables installment. You won’t find many plot clues in the trailer below, but given that it was only just filmed this summer, they’re moving along at a pretty steady pace.
