Deadpool’s Tim Miller developing X-Men spin-off, Kitty Pryde

Author: Zehra Phelan

Deadpool director Tim Miller has been confirmed to be developing a new X-Men spin-off on the character Kitty Pryde for Fox.

Kitty Pryde is the youngest person to join the X-Men, she was first portrayed as a “kid sister” to many older members of the X-Men, filling the role of literary foil to the more established characters. During this time she occasionally uses the codenames Sprite and Ariel, undergoing many costume changes for each codename until settling for her trademark black and gold costume her abilities include the phasing ability that allows her, as well as objects or people she is in contact with, to become intangible. This power also disrupts any electrical field she passes through and lets her simulate levitation.

During the miniseries Kitty Pryde and Wolverine, she is renamed Shadowcat, the alias she would be most associated with, and transitions to the more mature depiction of her subsequent appearances.

Christian Bale Talks About How Things Went From Bad to Worse on Terminator: Salvation

Terminator: Salvation definitely wasn't Christian Bale's finest moment. The movie started out with a decent concept but was executed terribly by director McG. On top of the mediocre level of filmmaking, it was also the moment where Bale completely blew up at one of the crew members and started yelling at him and the crew. Like I said, this wasn't Bale's finest moment. If you want a little reminder of that, you can listen to it here.

During a recent interview with The Playlist, Bale opened up about his time working on Terminator: Salvation and his "enormous regrets". Not only did he talk about how the film project went from bad to worse, but he also reflected on his foul-mouthed tirade. Things just didn't pan out for the film the way he was hoping:

"I said no three times. I thought that the franchise…I went ‘Nah, there’s no story there.

Terminator: Salvation: Christian Bale on his regrets

Simon Brew Jan 10, 2018

Christian Bale on why he took on Terminator: Salvation, and what went wrong...

If all had gone to plan, the fourth Terminator movie, Terminator: Salvation, would have kickstarted a fresh trilogy. Directed by McG and starring Christian Bale and Sam Worthington, things did not go to plan however. If anything, the film remained more notable for Bale’s verbal attack on director of photography Shane Hurlbut, that was recorded and released online.

Bale's been looking back on Terminator: Salvation in a new interview with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, and sharing some of his regrets.

Admitting that he first said no to appearing in the film three times before accepting, Bale recalled that “it was an unfortunate series of events involving the writers’ strike, involving Jonah Nolan, who was able to come on, and really start to write a wonderful script, but then got called away for

Christian Bale Did Terminator: Salvation Out of Spite, Regrets It

Christian Bale Did Terminator: Salvation Out of Spite, Regrets It
Terminator Salvation wasn't bad enough that it killed the franchise. But it never got a sequel, with the series instead rebooted to include more Arnold Schwarzenegger. Terminator Salvation was the fourth movie in the saga, and it picked up in the future as John Connor became the leader that was prophesied in the early movies. It was supposed to set up a trilogy that never happened. And star Christian Bale is probably grateful for that. As he looks at the movie as one of his biggest career regrets.

The actor recently admitted that he took on the role simply out of spite, and it blew up in his face. He wanted the movie to go well from the moment he stepped on set. But it became apparent that wasn't going to happen. In a recent interview, Bale discusses what went wrong with Terminator Salvation, and why it's considered a stain on his resume.

Christian Bale Initially Turned Down Terminator Salvation Three Times; Recalls “Enormous Regrets” Over On-Set Outburst

When Terminator Salvation booted online eight years ago, McG’s star-studded reboot (Bryce Dallas Howard! Michael Ironside! Helena Bonham Carter!) was held up as the near-perfect platform on which Christian Bale could begin his transition away from Christopher Nolan’s beloved Batman series.

After all, much like Genisys, Salvation was designed to spawn a whole new trilogy of movies with Bale’s John Connor at its core, but the end product was a mishmash of bad ideas and weak storytelling, leading the studio to haul the Terminator offline for the foreseeable future.

And though many consider Terminator Salvation to be the runt of the litter – worse than even Rise of the Machines – Christian Bale offered a candid retrospective on the doomed reboot while appearing on MTV’s Happy Sad Confused podcast (via The Playlist):

I said no three times. I thought that the franchise…I went ‘Nah, there’s no story there.

Lyndsy Fonseca in First Trailer for Time Travel Indie Film 'Curvature'

"Why do you think Wells was so secretive about his work?" Screen Media has unveiled a trailer for indie sci-fi thriller Curvature, which premiered at the Sitges Film Festival last year. This time travel film follows a young engineer named Helen Phillips, played by Lyndsy Fonseca (who you will recognize from Kick-Ass or "Agent Carter"), distraught by her husband's suicide. He had been developing a time travel prototype. She wakes up one morning and gets a phone call from herself, which sets things in motion as she tries to figure out what's going on. Co-starring Linda Hamilton, Glenn Morshower, Alex Lanipekun, Zach Avery, Noah Bean. I saw this at Sitges and unfortunately it's not good. It has all the right ingredients, including a cool-looking time travel machine, but just doesn't amount to much and is instantly forgettable. Check it out.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Still looking sharp 26 years since its premiere, James Cameron’s picture completely masters the mass audience thriller while pushing the effects envelope far beyond the industry’s horizon. Technically slick, conceptually brutal, Cameron’s style is what still prevails in action-based Sci-Fi. All this, and Ah-nold too.

Cinema’s Damaged Heroine

Sarah Myles on cinema’s damaged heroine…

“Badass.”

As a word, it has become synonymous with determined women in movies. Why? Because that is how critics routinely describe them.

“Black Widow gets extra bad-ass in this Avengers 2 trailer,” said Rob Bricken of i09.

In Atomic Blonde, Charlize Theron plays “a career badass who enjoys both the job and the perks with equal enthusiasm,” according to J. Hurtado of Screen Anarchy.

Kaya Payseno of Bust tells us that “Badass women star in a feminist western,” while reviewing The Keeping Room.

According to Wendy Ide of The Guardian, Wonder Woman is “A gloriously badass breath of fresh air.”

From whence does this strangely limited vocabulary come? How have we reached a point where a critic can use the word ‘badass,’ and we almost all picture exactly the same thing: a mostly solitary woman, in figure hugging/revealing costumes, scowling and being violent?

Exclusive Interview: Rene Russo believes in the men of this generation

It’s a ringing endorsement for the Gen-x/Millennial generation that Rene Russo has faith in us. In the ‘90s, Russo was one of the women who paved the way for female icons with roles in Lethal Weapon 3, In the Line of Fire, Outbreak and Ransom. Fans like me grew up watching Rene Russo, Linda Hamilton, Geena Davis and Sarah Michelle Gellar do the same things Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Mel Gibson and other men did, so we don’t even question it today. Our conversation about Russo’s new movie went there. Russo reunites with her Tin Cup director Ron Shelton for...read more

‘Terminator 2: Judgment Day’ 3D Blu-ray Review

Review by Matthew Turner

Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Robert Patrick, Joe Morton, Earl Boen, Jenette Goldstein, Xander Berkeley | Written by James Cameron, William Wisher Jr. | Directed by James Cameron

Twenty-six years after it blasted onto screens in the summer of 1991, James Cameron’s smash-hit Terminator sequel Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been given an immaculate clean-up and 3D conversion treatment for this missed-it-by-a-year anniversary release. Supervised by Cameron himself, the newly tweaked 3D effects are reason enough to see the film again, but does it still hold up after all this time? The short answer is yes. Yes, it does.

The plot, in case you somehow needed reminding, picks up ten years after the events of 1984′s The Terminator, with Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) locked up in an asylum, muttering about an imminent apocalypse, and future resistance leader John Connor (Edward Furlong) still just a snarky ten

Blu-ray Review – Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D (1991)

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D, 1991.

Directed by James Cameron.

Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong, Joe Morton, and Robert Patrick.

Synopsis:

Years after Sarah Connor was stalked by a Terminator, a machine sent from a future where an AI has subjugated humanity, she must now prevent another, more powerful Terminator from killing her son John, destined to be leader of the human Resistance, with the help of a reprogrammed version of the original machine who first tried to kill her…

It took the better part of a decade and a lengthy legal battle for Carolco Pictures over rights, but Terminator 2: Judgment Day was as inevitable as SkyNet and the war against the machines. James Cameron built the first Terminator movie as, to a degree, a told story but one with plenty of open-ended trap doors built-in, with an expansive mythos he could mine to continue the epic tale

James Cameron on why the time is right for a new Terminator movie

Yesterday we brought you some comments from James Cameron about his four new Avatar movies, but of course they aren’t the only upcoming sequels that the filmmaker has a hand in, as he is set to produce a new Terminator movie – a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day – which is being directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool).

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Cameron has explained why the time is right for another Terminator movie (and no, it’s not just because he’s got the rights back!):

“I just feel like the world we live in now is going to be very much defined by our co-evolution with our technology,” said Cameron. “While technology and innovation have this vast promise for our survival, it’s also an enormous threat, especially when it comes to strong [artificial intelligence] being coupled with weaponised robotics, and that’s all coming. It’s

Stephanie Austin interview: producing Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Ryan Lambie Dec 4, 2017

Co-producer Stephanie Austin talks to us about the trials of bringing one of the biggest movies of all time, Terminator 2, to the screen...

In 1990, producer Stephanie Austin, previously known for her work in television, helped shepherd one of the biggest films of the decade to the big screen. Little did she know at the time, as she first looked through James Cameron's ambitious sequel script, that she would soon be producing the most expensive movie up to that point - a new high-watermark in special effects, and a proving ground for other CGI blockbusters.

‘The Terminator’ Reboot Gives The Wheel To ‘Captain Phillips’ Writer Billy Ray

Just when we thought the “The Terminator” franchise was all but dead, James Cameron announced his unexpected return for a new trilogy.

The last two films, “Terminator: Salvation” and “Terminator: Genisys,” were soul-crushing. After those debacles, the only way many fans would hop back onboard would be if James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Linda Hamilton all decided to return.

Children Of The Corn (1984) The Arrow Blu Review

Review by Roger Carpenter

Stephen King films can be a mixed bag. For every really good film adaptation (Carrie; The Shining; Misery) there’s a bad one (Maximum Overdrive; Graveyard Shift; The Dark Tower). There are also a whole slew of Stephen King films that fall somewhere in the middle. I think Children of the Corn is one of the films that falls squarely in the middle of the pack.

There are some real strengths in the film. It has some genuine star quality, with soon-to-be action star Linda Hamilton (The Terminator) and TV heartthrob Peter Horton (Thirtysomething) starring as married couple Burt and Vicky, who become stranded in a town filled only with murderous, brainwashed children. The children are led by Isaac (John Franklin), who has a direct connection with an evil entity the children worship called He Who Walks Behind the Rows, and Malachai (Courtney Gains), Isaac’s mean-spirited enforcer.
