Welcome, my post-keteers! This week’s irradiated mailbag is just heaving with questions waiting to be answered by your equally irradiated postman. Should the DC movies introduce New Gods other than Darkseid? Why is Daredevil’s Stick so badass? Plus, Valiant’s movie efforts, half-Vulcan virility, and more. Let’s get to…
The late Bill Paxton’s career was incredibly varied—he earned widespread critical acclaim for HBO polygamy drama Big Love, and rocked one of the best mustaches in the West in Tombstone. But our favorite Paxton performances came in genre movies—and he was a high point in some of the greatest of all time.
It seemed like Terminator Genisys had killed the Terminator franchise once and for all, but a new hero is coming back: James Cameron. Cameron, who wrote and directed the first two films, regains the rights in 2019 and is reportedly working with Deadpool director Tim Miller on a brand new film.
Pumpkinhead is being rebooted. Jai Courtney is open to doing more Terminator films... but would prefer if they stopped altogether. Grant Gustin teases the extent of the effect Flashpoint has on The Flash. Plus, new pictures from the Exorcist TV show, and more details on the next season of Agents of SHIELD. Spoilers…
You can’t blame Hollywood for its non-stop deluge of remakes, sequels, and prequels. Audiences keep showing up for them, and they take one of the most difficult parts of art—the idea—out of the equation. What’s unforgivable though is making a movie under the assumption a sequel will be made after it.
Seriously. Who wants this on their mantlepiece? Except for maybe Arnold Schwarzenegger himself?
Sarah Connor is no more—or at least, the version of her that looks like a certain Mother of Dragons. Emilia Clarke has confirmed that if there are future movies in the Terminator franchise (something that remains to be actually confirmed), she will have no part in them.
I’m mad at Syfy. They gave me the first eight episodes of 12 Monkeys season two several weeks ago. And since I watched those episodes, I’ve been on tenterhooks. If you thought 12 Monkeys was fascinating and crack-like in its first season, then you’re going to have a problem when season two starts tonight. No spoilers…
This is kind of an insane longshot, but Gale Ann Hurd, who produced The Terminator and Terminator 2, told fans last weekend that it’s at least possible she will team up with original director James Cameron on a new Terminator film.
Gale Anne Hurd became famous for producing movies like The Terminator, Aliens, and Armageddon. But these days, she’s better known as the producer of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. Now, she’s producing Hunters for Syfy, and she told us why it’s her most political show yet.
Terminator Genisys might not have been the most popular movie of 2015, but it did include a memorable fight scene where the old and young versions of Schwarzenegger’s T-800 have an epic street brawl. But how was Arnold able to fight himself? Cutting edge CG, obviously.
Syfy’s been on a roll lately with the book adaptations—especially The Expanse. Next month, the cable channel is rolling out a TV show based on Whitley Strieber’s Alien Hunter books, called Hunters. And here’s a much closer look, thanks to some high-res photos, exclusively at io9.
These are the work of Jesse Bray, whose portraits of famous pop culture characters have just enough geometry to them to be interesting but aren’t completely abstracted.
The future is officially free from Skynet. Or, worse, a sequel to Genisys. Paramount announced today that the film called Terminator 2 on its schedule has been pulled from its schedule. Baywatch now has its May 19, 2017 release date. [Deadline]
In Syfy’s next brand new show, Hunters, an FBI agent joins a special government division that fights against the worst kind of terrorists of all: aliens. And they may have taken his wife captive. This new trailer, shown today at the Television Critics Association, really hits the “War on Terror” themes hard.
It sucks that Will Smith won’t be in the Independence Day sequel—but wait ‘til you hear the random explanation for his character being gone. Alas, this is standard practice. When stars decide not to come back, movies come up with rationales for writing them out, that go beyond “dog ate my homework.”
Who knew that building a snowblower looks like building your own damn Terminator crossed with some gnarly Battle Bot? Or at least, that’s what it feels like to me. The red painting process is intimidating, the way the blades get shaped in one stamping motion is impressive, and the finishing assembly process is like…
It’s long been a recognized fact of existence that the best Terminator concept art is the Judgment Day concept art, or else art showing the war against Skynet in the future. So these brand new art pieces, showing Judgment Day in action, are pure apocalyptic gold.
It looks goofy as hell, that’s what it looks like. Whenever a movie relies as heavily on CGI and visual effects as Terminator: Genysis does, seeing the “real” footage is always weird. Needless to say, there are some spoilers if you chose to watch the video below.
