First full trailer for The Expendables 3

The folks over at Yahoo Movies have released the first teaser for The Expendables 3, showing a couple action beats and the film's pretty sizable cast. I didn't much care for The Expendables One, with its dark color palette a...

Expendables 3 rolls out a whole ton of posters

The cast for the Expendables films just keeps getting larger and larger, and in this very rare instance that is a completely awesome thing. You can tell it's completely awesome because despite the absurd amount of charac...

Review: Sabotage photo
Review: Sabotage
by Matthew Razak

I've been hyping Sabotage since I first heard about it. I'm a huge Arnold Schwarzenegger fan and a huge David Ayers (End of Watch) fan so the two together sounds like sweet, sweet cop action bliss. Ayers is great and melding action and drama while developing actual characters and Schwarzenegger is great at... well... being in action movies. Things looked pretty good.

It was easy to get excited to because the supporting cast was really solid and the trailers actually advertised the film in the right way. Heading in I was certain I was going to have a good time at this movie. You know what? I did.

See Sabotage early and free

I might be hyping Sabotage more than most other movies, but that's because it isn't getting the respect it (hopefully) deserves. Arnold is awesome and director David Ayer is even awesome..er. So get excited! And then gra...

New Red Band Sabotage trailer brings us more Arnold

I'm not quite sure we're all actually excited enough for Sabotage, because we really should be. After the last red band I thought we'd all be on board with Arnold taking on a drug cartel with a bunch of other awesome people ...

Sabotage gets bumped to a March 28 release date

I'm not quite sure what to think about Sabotage. It's got Arnold as a cop with big guns so I lean towards dumb action flick, but then you realize that the director of one of the best cop movies of the decade, End of Watch, is...

Here's a video with all of Arnold Schwarzenegger's kills

News will be virtually non existent over the next few days, so here's one last thing to leave you with over the holiday. Auralnauts, the same cool folks that did those Bane Outtakes videos, have compiled a 28 minute video of each and every one of Schwarzenegger's kills. Can you guess how many? Nope, it's more than that. I love you all. Have a good holiday!  [via Auralnauts]

Listen all of y'all it's the second trailer for Sabotage

End of Watch was my favorite film of 2012. This second trailer for David Ayer's Sabotage (formerly titled Ten reflecting the ten million stolen from their drug bust), however, doesn't look like the excellent follow up I was ...

First teaser trailer for The Expendables 3
by Nick Valdez

We've been completely in the dark with The Expendables 3. We've heard about all of that ugly stuff behind the scenes about Bruce Willis, the numerous additions to the cast, but no one really knows what's going on. There hasn't been a scrap of promotional material (like posters or images), and the teaser above was dropped on us completely by surprise. 

Of course I'm worried about how the film's going to turn out. Is it rated R again because Chuck Norris isn't coming back? Is replacing Bruce Willis with Harrison Ford a good move even if Ford is a sad old man? Sure The Expendables isn't the best franchise, but Expendables 2 was great for its last 20 minutes since it finally delivered on its promise. Can Expendables 3 be greater than the others now that Stallone is going up against Mel Gibson? I guess we'll see August 15th next year. Don't keep us in the dark for that long next time, okay?

Nick's Flixmas: Jingle All the Way photo
Nick's Flixmas: Jingle All the Way
by Nick Valdez

If you haven't been paying attention to Nick's Flixmas, it's okay because that's all going to change right now. I'm writing about a Christmas film a day for 25 days and am already thirteen posts in. As we get into the Twelve Days of Flixmas, the remaining films will probaably the most recognizable to you all. We're in the big leagues. 

To kick it off on day fourteen of Nick's Flixmas is Jingle All the Way, my favorite Christmas film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. I almost want to say it's my favorite Schwarzenegger film overall, but there's plenty of stiff competition. No, you know what? It is my favorite Schwarzenegger film. It's really hard to top "HE GOT TWO!" or "Put that cookie down, NOW!" or even "I'm not a pervert!" 

[Nick's Flixmas is a 25 day celebration of films Nick watches every Christmas! Nick will do some analysis, review, and just generally walk down memory lane. Hopefully you'll enjoy the ride. Merry Flixmas!]

Sabotage trailer fails at having Beastie Boys in it

NRH's Weekly Analysis: Lost Action Hero photo
NRH's Weekly Analysis: Lost Action Hero
by Nathan Hardisty

Last Action Hero recently turned 20, and it's time to reexamine it. Two decades later, it's still largely misunderstood. Holding only a 39% on Rotten Tomatoes, it was critically panned upon release and was a box office failure. It's too bad, because Last Action Hero is an incredibly smart film which was just one step ahead of its audience. The truth behind this picture is that it’s just too honest. I do believe it’s worth some substantial analysis.

It’s quite hard to say what exactly Last Action Hero is about -- it’s one of main criticisms of the picture -- but I’ll try and put it succinctly: Last Action Hero is an action-movie satire that takes the macho-male power fantasy icon and molds him into a caricature of 80s optimism. The film deals with the relationship between fiction and the real world, escapism and reality and morality. It can even be said to somewhat embody a feminist flavor in some of its themes. Certainly it’s much more than an explosions montage with tacked on character development.

New Terminator film is a reboot, new trilogy starts 2015 photo
New Terminator film is a reboot, new trilogy starts 2015
by Hubert Vigilla

So much for Terminator 5. It turns out that the new Terminator movie is a franchise reboot that kicks off a new standalone trilogy. The reboot, simply called Terminator, will be out on June 26, 2015. The screenplay will be written by Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry). Arnold Schwarzenegger will be in the film as a Terminator.

There are no plot details as of yet, nor are there release dates for the other two films in this standalone Terminator trilogy. Since James Cameron gets the Terminator rights back in 2019, one can assume the next two films will come pretty soon after the 2015 reboot. I'm just going to assume that this reboot is some kind of alternate timeline thing, and old Spock will help the Terminator understand what's going on.

How do you feel about Terminator as a reboot and this standalone trilogy idea?
