Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He’ll Be Back, Again, For More Terminator Movies

TerminatorTerminator: Genisys doesn’t even come out for more than four months, but in this business it’s never too early to talk about sequels. This is the fifth film in the time travelling murder robot franchise, and it is intended to be the first installment in a new trilogy. Genisys also brings Arnold Schwarzenegger back into the fold, and the action legend is down for even more adventures.

Paramount has already set release dates for Terminator: Genisys 2 and 3—they’ll shoot back-to-back and arrive May 19, 2017 and June 29, 2018, respectively—and Arnold says, you know, he’ll be back. Talking to The Arnold Fans, the former governor of California revealed his plans to return to the family of films he helped define. Given how his post-political career films have performed—some have been decent, but none have lit up the box office like he used to—it makes sense he’s down to revisit one of his biggest successes.

Watch This Gritty, Violent Power Rangers Short Starring Katee Sackhoff

Cards on the table, I never really got into Power Rangers. I was a little bit older than the generation who were super into it when it hit in the U.S., and as a result it was more of a pop culture phenomenon that I watched from a distance. Because of that, I’m pretty indifferent to all the talk of a big budget Power Rangers movie—I’m excited about it as a huge genre tentpole, but I don’t have any particular emotional investment in it one way or another. That said, after watching this dark, gritty Power Ranger fan film, I hope Hollywood it taking notes, because this is awesome. Check it out.

Star Wars Rebels Brings Back Darth Vader For The Season Finale

As the first new addition to the post-Disney canon, Star Wars Rebels has been a pleasant surprise. Definitely aimed at a younger audience, it’s still enjoyable for us grow folks as well, full of swashbuckling action, not to mention the fact that it’s featured tons of familiar faces from the franchise. The end of the first season is upon us, and they’re going to bring back one fan favorite character for the finale: Darth Vader, which you can see near the end of this new promo.

Vader, voiced by James Earl Jones, showed up in an extended version of the first episode of Rebels, “Spark of Rebellion,” and he’ll make his presence known once again in Monday’s installment, “Fire Across the Galaxy.” The iconic villain doesn’t play much of a role in this video, though all you need is a flash of his presence to know that you’re in for a harrowing time.

Star Wars: Gary Whitta Talks Prequels, Spinoffs, And More

Star WarsLots of us grew up as Star Wars fans (many of us never really outgrew that phase), but a relative few of us have wound up in a position to actually contribute to that far, far away galaxy in any capacity. Gary Whitta is one of those fortunate enough to do just that, and he has a lot to say on the matter, from talking about fandom to what it was like to be a part of the Star Wars universe.

Pumping up his new book, a dark fantasy called Abomination, he stopped by /film to chat. As you can imagine, it didn’t take long for the topic of discussion to turn from his book to Star Wars—Whitta turned in a draft of the first standalone movie in the franchise, directed by Godzilla’s Gareth Edwards and due out in 2016, and departed the production to pursue other avenues.

Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters Has This One Very Unusual Source Of Inspiration

GhostbustersSince almost day one, the people involved in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot have talked about how, while they want to keep it funny like the original, they’re not going to skimp on the scares. How they’re going to go about accomplishing this remains up in the air, but director Paul Feig, who is also co-writing the script with Katie Dippold, recently revealed one big influence on his film that you might not necessarily expect: The Walking Dead.
