He'll be baaack. Though Arnold Schwarzenegger admits he wasn't able to take time out of his busy gubernatorial schedule to shoot a cameo for 'Terminator Salvation,' the Governator has revealed he will still appear in the film. How is that possible? Technological wizardry, of course. Warner Bros. is digitally splicing in footage of Ahnuld from the original 'Terminator' for a "brief scene" in the new flick. We'll take it.
Earth Day was indeed very green for Disneynature's breathtaking wildlife documentary 'Earth,' which raked in $4 million to score the best opening day ever for a non-concert doc. While 'Earth' did have a bit of an advantage -- it opened wide, whereas other lucrative documentaries such as 'March of the Penguins' and 'Fahrenheit 9/11' first opened in limited release -- it is receiving overwhelmingly positive reviews and seems poised to become one of the top-grossing docs of all time.
With filming on the 'Twilight' sequel 'New Moon' underway in Canada, the savvy marketers over at Summit have released their first (shirtless) look at the Wolf Pack via USA Today. And, though they look more six-packed than Wolf Pack in this photo, be assured that these guys will become some badass werewolves indeed.
After watching the trailer for this bachelor-party comedy from 'Old School' writer-director Todd Phillips, you'll be asking yourself three questions: When can I see this? Why don't all Vegas bachelor parties include babies, tigers and chickens? And, last but certainly not least, who knew Mike Tyson had such a beautiful singing voice?
Robert Rodriguez has been tapped to relaunch the 'Predator' franchise, which kicked off with the hit 1987 Arnold Schwarzenegger original, and has clung to popularity with the 'Alien vs. Predator' films. Rodriguez will direct the movie from his own original script entitled 'Predators.' And that's not all the ambitious filmmaker has cooking. If you were a fan of the faux trailer for 'Machete' that Rodriguez included in 2007's 'Grindhouse,' you're in luck. Rodriguez is set co-direct a feature-length 'Machete' flick, starring Danny Trejo as a blade-wielding Mexican ex-Federale out for vengeance against a double-crossing state senator. Fingers crossed they keep the original tagline: "They f***ed with the wrong Mexican." Pretty much says it all.
It's official: Drew Barrymore will not be directing 'Eclipse.' Ending months of speculation and the wild bandying about of potential candidates (Barrymore included), Summit Entertainment has announced that '30 Days of Night' helmer David Slade will direct 'Eclipse,' the third film in the 'Twilight' saga. With his previous (albeit slightly more blood-soaked than 'Twilight') vampire experience on 'Night,' Slade should have no trouble sinking his teeth into this one.
J.J. Abrams' 'Star Trek' relaunch doesn't blast off in theaters until May 8, but it's already garnering amorous reviews. The latest comes from Variety, which calls the film a "smart and breathless space adventure" that "will transport fans to sci-fi nirvana." Beam us up, J.J.
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are heading back to the big screen in a new live-action flick that will explore their origins (didn't they already have one of those?). The film, which is due sometime in 2011, marks the fifth big-screen go-around for crime-fighting, pizza-loving turtles Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello and Raphael and their giant rat karate mentor Splinter. Before the '07 animated outing 'TMNT,' the Ninja Turtles appeared in three live-action pics in the 1990s. Fingers crossed Vanilla Ice returns to perform the theme song.
Christian Bale has signed on to star with Mark Wahlberg in the David O. Russell-directed boxing flick 'The Fighter,' the 'Rocky'-esque real-life tale of Boston pugilist "Irish" Mickey Ward (Wahlberg) and the once-troubled half brother (Bale) who coaches him to the world lightweight championship. Though we're excited for the Bale-Wahlberg pairing, the teaming of 'Terminator' tantrum-thrower Bale with notoriously hot-headed director Russell (even George Clooney didn't get along with him) could provide some serious on-set fireworks.
Angelina Jolie is set to play opera-loving coroner Dr. Kay Scarpetta in a movie based on Patricia Cornwell's series of best-selling mystery novels. The film, which will hew closely to 'Silence of the Lambs' and 'Seven' in tone, won't be based on a specific tome -- but with 16 Scarpetta novels in Cornwell's catalog, it's safe to say there's franchise potential.
