The Rock Wants to Run for President in 2024

The Rock Wants to Run for President in 2024
President Rock is a becoming a real thing that could very seriously happen. Last year, Dwayne Johnson teased that a career in politics could be in his future. Specifically, he flirted with the idea of a potential run for the White House in the future. Now he's done flirting with the idea, as he says he will "100% consider" running for office in 2024. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview.

"I couldn't do both...Realistically, as we go into 2018, when you look at my slate as we're developing and shooting into 2019 and 2020, the slate goes deep into 2021, so it feels like the realistic consideration would be 2024."

Dwayne Johnson is currently promoting his upcoming movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. One of the many major projects he has lined up over the next few years. For that reason, it's not realistic to assume that he could run

First poster and trailer for Journey to China starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan

The first international trailer and poster have arrived online for director Oleg Stepchenko’s rather bizarre looking fantasy adventure sequel Journey to China which stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Rutger Hauer, Charles Dance, Jason Flemyng, and Yuri Kolokolnikov; check them out below…

The English traveler Jonathan Green receives from Peter the Great an order to map the Russian Far East. Once again he sets out for a long journey full of incredible adventures that will eventually lead him to China. The cartographer will unexpectedly face a lot of breathtaking discoveries, encounter bizarre creatures, meet with Chinese princesses, and confront deadly martial arts masters and even the king of all dragons – the Dragon King. What could be more dangerous than meeting eye to eye with Viy, except doing it again? What would be stronger this time – a staunch skepticism of the scientist or the old black magic that has seized power of Eastern lands?

Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger star in Viy 2: Journey to China!

  • JoBlo
Wait, Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger are starring in a period action-movie together, and I haven't heard about it?! And it's being released in just a couple months?! What the hell kind of world is this?! Well, a part of that reason is that this is a Chinese-Russian co-production, and that it's only got an official Russian release lined up so far (at least according to imdb).... Read More...

First Quick Teaser for Wacky 'Journey to China' with Schwarzenegger

This looks very weird. A very short teaser trailer has debuted online for a film titled Journey to China, for short, though it goes by many names. This film is actually Viy 2, a sequel to Viy (from 2014), also known as Forbidden Empire - a fantasy adventure movie set in a cursed Romanian forest. This sequel goes by other titles including: Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask, The Mystery of Dragon Seal: The Journey to China, or just simply Viy-2. The plot involves English traveler/cartographer Jonathan Green journeying to China and falling into a fantastical adventure. The film's peculiar cast features Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Rutger Hauer, Charles Dance, Jason Flemyng, Yuri Kolokolnikov. Schwarzenegger is playing James Hook, but I don't even know what's going on. Maybe the full-length trailer will reveal more. Here's the first international trailer (+ poster) for Oleg Stepchenko's Journey to China, from

Jean-Claude Van Johnson: action stars, silliness and off-screen toughness

Matt Edwards Dec 14, 2017

As action comedy thriller Jean-Claude Van Johnson arrives on Amazon Prime Video, Matt looks at the history of action movie star satire...

In the new Amazon series Jean-Claude Van Johnson, action star Jean-Claude Van Damme attempts to relaunch his career by playing a fictionalised version of himself. In the show, Jean-Claude goes to Bulgaria to star in a movie which has been set-up to allow him to undertake covert missions for the agency as his alter-ego name Jean-Claude Van Johnson.

This might all seem a bit familiar, for a couple of reasons. Of course, it’s not the first time that hyper-flexible jaw-punter Van Damme has relaunched his career by playing a fictionalised version of himself. 2008's excellent Jcvd, where he plays a down-on-his-luck version of himself who gets caught up in a bank heist, is perhaps the famous

Why do we repeatedly watch trashy films during the festive season?

George Chrysostomou on Christmas viewing habits…

It feels like finally, the Christmas period has rolled around and the collection of assorted chocolate, wine and badly wrapped presents have begun to collect ready for December 25th. And with this season comes the one thing that most people have in common regardless of your religion, traditions or where you live. I am of course talking about the festive film, so called because of its reliance on Christmas comedy, family feuds or Santa in one form or another.

No matter what you do during the month of December, one certainty is that you will turn on the TV to watch a film that you know, deep down, isn’t very good. Yet, this is the fifteenth year you have watched it so why turn back now? (it would have been sixteen in a row except for that year you had to go to the in-laws…

Exclusive Interview – Screenwriter William Wisher on Terminator 2: Judgment Day

Coinciding with the home-entertainment release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D, Flickering Myth’s Martin Carr chats with screenwriter William Wisher about the 1991 sci-fi action classic…

Martin Carr: Hi William. How did you and James Cameron first meet and subsequently get involved with the Terminator franchise?

William Wisher: Well the short version is I first met Jim in late 1972. He had graduated from high school in Canada the year before and I knew his girlfriend at the time Sharon Williams and she said ‘you should meet my boyfriend because he’s into the movies and science fiction and all that’, and we did and we have been friends ever since.

Mc: Considering the original Terminator was quite a dark film in comparison to Terminator 2 which seems more deliberately commercial, did you both consciously decide to go that way during writing or did it just happen?

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.

‘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

The Toxic Avenger Was Almost Remade By Kevin Smith

The Toxic Avenger is one of the best exploitation films ever produced and is a true 1980s B-movie classic. It effortlessly fused together the superhero and horror genres to create a brilliantly comedic display of violence and gratuity. As such, it was followed by a line of sequels, and talk of a remake has gone on and off for the better part of a decade. In fact, at one point, even Arnold Schwarzenegger was attached.

But plans since then have seemed to fallen apart, leaving the future of the Toxic Avenger franchise uncertain. Now, though, we’re learning more about the failed project. Specifically, that director Kevin Smith was set to helm a remake, before turning down the offer due to budgetary concerns.

According to Smith’s Fatman on Batman podcast, here’s what happened:

The Days Of Thunder vs Dick Tracy blockbuster rivalry

Simon Brew Dec 4, 2017

The summer of 1990 was supposed to be a showdown between Dick Tracy and Days Of Thunder. It was a bit of an odd rivalry...

It would be fair to say that the top five movies at the Us box office in 1990 didn’t follow the rule book. In fact, 1990 saw Hollywood’s blockbuster formula falter, to the point that conversations were rife about whether a sea change was coming. Dramtic changes in blockbuster mentality were certainly on the way, as it happened, but not for a decade or so. Yet the seed was planted in 1990 that sure-fire blockbuster hits weren’t always, well, sure-fire blockbuster hits.

24 Hours to Live movie review: Life/Off

24 Hours to Live reminds me of the kinds of movies I used to get excited about as a teenage cinephile. Sure, there were franchises that had me on name alone, or the star power of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Stallone, but my favorites were when an idea was so good I just had to see it. Bruce Willis versus terrorists in a building in Die Hard, the bus that couldn’t slow down in Speed or literally switching faces in Face/Off were some of those must sees. Likewise, if you told me there was a movie about a guy who comes...read more

Ten Terrible Movie Promotions

  • Cinelinx
Beyond just the standard trailer(s) and poster, many films have an entire promotional campaign designed to spark interest. Here’s a look at ten film promotional campaigns which should have stayed on the drawing board.

Selling a movie is not an easy task, and over the years it has not gotten any easier. Promotional campaigns have to be very creative and persistent in order to capture people’s attention amid the sea of advertising we are flooded with on a daily basis. Common tactics include giveaways, publicity stunts, viral marketing techniques, sponsorships, and product tie-ins. Many films try to push the boundaries of traditional promotional campaigns in an effort to get an edge on the competition. Below is a brief look at ten campaigns (in no particular order) which definitely pushed the envelope, but doing so did more harm than good for the films they were trying to promote.
