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?
A algunos les parecerá que ha sido ayer, pero lo cierto es que ha llovido bastante desde el 3 de julio de 1991 en el que se estrenó Terminator 2: Judgement Day. La película de James Cameron cosechó un éxito sin precedentes y marcó tendencia en el cine de acción. Hoy queremos celebrar su 25 aniversario con 25 datos…
En varios clásicos del cine hemos visto cómo villanos (o incluso héroes) encuentran su muerte cayendo sobre lava o acero fundido. Hollywood nos muestra a esta persona hundiéndose de una forma gloriosa, pero la realidad es que morir de esta forma es algo mucho más horrible de lo que nos muestran las películas.
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…
The Apocalypse rules pop culture. Half the biggest literary novels these days are apocalyptic, and meanwhile The Walking Dead is a huge hit. Post-apocalyptic stories are what space opera was in the Space Age. But what are they about? Here are 10 types of apocalypses, and what they each signify.
La idea de inyectarte una solución con millones de diminutos terminators de metal líquido no parece muy agradable. Sin embargo, puede convertirse en una de las armas más poderosas para combatir el cáncer. Estos pequeños dispositivos no solo detectan y eliminan las células enfermas, sino que después se disuelven sin…
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.
