Terminator: Genisys already has sequels because future money

The next installment in ever rebooting Terminator franchise, Genisys (I still can't believe I have to spell in like that), is on a quick track for a 2015 release even if we've seen literally nothing at this point. Despite thi...

Brawn vs. Brainless: Lionsgate picks up Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie film 'Maggie'

Arnold Schwarzenegger has fought a lot of things in his heyday: predators, mercenaries, illegitimate children, Satan, kindergartners, robots, and even mutants on Mars. One thing that he hasn't battled, to my knowledge, is a z...

Final trailer for The Expendables 3

Due to some unfortunate events, a digital copy of The Expendables 3 was leaked onto the Internet and was pirated more than 2 million times. Now Lionsgate is trying to sue the individuals responsible claiming that the piracy ...

Character posters for The Expendables 3 get colorful

While the trailers for The Expendables 3 refuse to drop the Fast & Furious-style title font, at least it's trying something different with the rest of its marketing. In a lighthearted move to remind us the film will be ra...

New trailer for The Expendables 3 gets the blood pumping

Been wondering if The Expendables 3 would have explosions and fight scenes and action? That's a dumb thing to wonder since it's The Expendables, but this trailer fully confirms that those things exist along wi...

Expendables 3 shoots up a PG-13 rating

I guess it was inevitable. The latest version in the Expendables franchise, due for release in mid-August, will be PG-13. This move makes Expendables 3 go from that movie that annoying kids snuck into to that movie that the a...

First full trailer for The Expendables 3
by Mike Cosimano

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 and overly serious tone, but The Expendables 2: Expenda-lectric Boogaloo was a delightfully cheesy throwback. And it appears as if The Expendables 3: Revenge of the Gibson will be following the path its predecessor took to Funtown, USA.

Of course, this is all filler until Expendabelles comes out.

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
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 off 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

So you have a movie called Sabotage and you put a trailer out for it. It's an action movie so some sort of rap/rock song would really work well over it. I think we all know what song should be playing on this trailer fo...
