Possible Terminator Genisys Plot details revealed

Entertainment Weekly is reporting this information for the upcoming Terminator movie: 

The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.

Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by Schwarzenegger’s Terminator—an older T-800 she calls “Pops”—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.



Joel Schumacher reimagining his Batman films as a new comic series

No, that headline is not a misprint: Joel Schumacher was involved with the creation of three movies in the BATMAN franchise. First, there was BATMAN FOREVER with Val Kilmer. Then we had the debacle that was BATMAN & ROBIN. After that film was critically and commercially panned, plans for the third film, BATMAN TRIUMPHANT, were cancelled. It would be years before Christopher Nolan would bring us BATMAN BEGINS and the franchise would be saved. Now, seventeen years since BATMAN & ROBIN took a shit on the collective face of movie fans, Schumacher wants to give it another shot.

Bleeding Cool reports that Joel Schumacher is working with comic artist Dustin Nguyen to rewrite BATMAN FOREVER, BATMAN & ROBIN, and the unproduced BATMAN TRIUMPHANT as a year long comic series. Schumacher intends to rewrite the three films from scratch and make them one coherent story the way he always meant to.

Schumacher has long since taken responsibility away from George Clooney and anyone else involved with BATMAN & ROBIN saying the failure of the film was completely on him. He told as much to Variety.

Val left at eleventh hour to do “The Island of Dr. Moreau.” It changed everything. George made a noble effort. I was the problem with “Batman & Robin.” I never did a sequel to any of my movies, and sequels are only made for one reason: to make more money and sell more toys. I did my job. But I never got my ass in the seat right.

They immediately wanted a sequel, but I said yes. There’s nobody else to blame but me. I could have said, “No, I’m not going to do it.” I just hope whenever I see a list of the worst movies ever made, we’re not on it. I didn’t do a good job. George did. Chris [O’Donnell] did. Uma [Thurman] is brilliant in it. Arnold is Arnold.

WWE Issues Statement about Billy Jack Haynes Lawsuit

"Billy Jack Haynes performed for WWE from 1986-1988. His filed lawsuit alleges that WWE concealed medical information and evidence on concussions during that time, which is impossible since the condition now called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) had not even been discovered. WWE was well ahead of sports organizations in implementing concussion management procedures and policies as a precautionary measure as the science and research on this issue emerged. Current WWE procedures include ImPACT testing for brain function, annual educational seminars and the strict prohibition of deliberate and direct shots to the head. Additionally, WWE has committed significant funding for concussion research conducted by the Sports Legacy Institute (SLI), leaders in concussion research, and WWE Executive Vice President Paul Levesque sits on SLI's Board."
