'Terminator: Genesis' Adds 'G.I. Joe Retaliation' Star Byung-hun Lee
Now that all the primary cast members are locked in, Terminator: Genesis is starting to round out the supporting cast, bringing on Byung-hun Lee (G.I. Joe Retaliation), Michael Gladis (Mad Men) and Sandrine Holt (House of Cards).

No details were given for any of these new cast members' roles, but The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Byung-hun Lee's role, "promises to be a doozy." They join a cast that includes Arnold Schwarzenegger as a T-800 Terminator, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, J.K. Simmons as a detective who has been obsessed with the Terminator/Sarah Connor case since 1984 and Dayo Okeniyi, who signed on last week to play the son of Cyberdyne engineer Miles Dyson.

The story is said to be a continuation of the original franchise, tying up previous story threads while taking into consideration the passage of time between the two movies.

Dayo Okeniyi Is Miles Dyson's Son in 'Terminator: Genesis'

  • MovieWeb
Dayo Okeniyi Is Miles Dyson's Son in 'Terminator: Genesis'
The Hunger Games star Dayo Okeniyi has landed the final lead role in Terminator: Genesis, portraying the son of Miles Dyson, Danny.

Earlier this week, we reported that John Boyega (Attack the Block) was vying for that role, just weeks after he was mentioned as a contender to play a Jedi apprentice in Star Wars: Episode VII. As it turns out, Deadline reports that Dayo Okeniyi also tested for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII before taking the Terminator: Genesis role.

(Does this mean Star Wars 7 is casting Boyega? We don't know yet.)

Danny is said to be a Steve Jobs-type genius, who figures heavily into the conclusion of the story. Since Terminator: Genesis is said to be the first in a stand-alone trilogy, which incorporates elements from the previous movies, it's possible that Danny could play a bigger role in subsequent sequels.

Blu-Ray Review: Disney’s Sugar-Coated ‘Prom’ Lacks Tangible Insight

  • HollywoodChicago.com
Chicago – If your ideal vision of prom is best represented by “Carrie,” then odds are Disney’s “Prom” is not for you. In fact, if you are a high schooler, were a high schooler or may become a high schooler, “Prom” is guaranteed to strike you as monumentally childish. It’s the sort of harmless dreck so mediocre and generic that it could’ve been made in any time period. In a sense, it’s timeless dreck.

See if this sounds familiar: a perky popular overachiever finds herself falling for the long-haired brooding loser with a motorcycle and a criminal record. “He’s a rude, arrogant menace!” she shouts early in the film, thus solidifying that she will undoubtedly end up in his arms at the final fade-out. Seriously, how many “Breakfast Club” retreads and Disneyfied teenage dramas does the human race need?

Running Time: 1 hr 47 mins

Rating: PG

Plot: A group of high schoolers experience different emotional ups and downs as they prepare for their school’s prom.

Who’S It For?: Having never been to prom before would help in appreciating the “magic” of this movie. Even college freshmen would be able to see through Prom, and witness the amount of fairy dust sprinkled around the real elements of this one night event.

Movie:

The insecure teenagers of Prom don’t burst out into song whenever they are overcome by their emotions, but they probably should. The only difference between the general structure of Prom and that of movies like Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, or even Aladdin, is that this film works with a whole assortment of characters, each of

Review: Prom

  • Pure Movies
This is the Pure Movies review of Prom, by Suki Ferguson. Prom is directed by Joe Nussbaum and starring Aimee Teegarden, Thomas McDonell, DeVaughn Nixon, Danielle Campbell, Yin Chang, Jared Kusnitz, Nolan Sotillo, Cameron Monaghan and Kylie Bunbury. Back in the days of yore, when I was a pre-teen girl, I was supposed to be reading magazines like Mizz - wholesome, girlish publications about pastel-coloured hair clips and blue-eyed boyband members. In reality, my friends and I were reading Just17, which sometimes included raunchy advice about gauging your bra size and how to flirt with your extremely hypothetical date. Meanwhile, actual 17 year old girls were reading Cosmopolitan's sex technique tips, and putting them into practice. (Just who was actually reading Mizz, then? I have no idea.) My point is simply this: no tweenage girl wants to watch a film about being a tweenage girl. They know that sex will be

Box Office Beatdown: Fast Five Drives Away with $83 Million

Box Office Beatdown: Fast Five Drives Away with $83 Million
Weekend Box Office

Fast Five $83.6 millionRio $14.4 millionMadea's Big Happy Family $10 millionWater for Elephants $9.1 millionProm $5 millionHoodwinked Too! Hood Vs. Evil $4.1 millionSoul Surfer $4.1 millionInsidious $2.8 millionHop $2.2 millionScream 4 $2.1 million

It's been a boffo weekend for Fast Five. This big budget car sequel seems to have welcomed the summer blockbuster season into the box office. It managed to crank out a spectacular $83 million. Add in international takes and it's grossed $165 million. This is particularly impressive because this surprisingly well-reviewed crowd-pleaser has managed to top the previous entry in the series which made $71 million on opening weekend.

In other news, Rich Ross of Disney is no doubt tucking his tail between his legs after his first attempt at creating a new franchise bombed big time. Prom was an utter disaster. They had predicted a $9 million opening but instead the tween film debuted to a very disappointing $5 million. It seems this won't be getting the High School Musical

Thusly, I'm not going to any movies tonight, but the rest of America probably isn't feeling quite so tired.

People are buzzing that today's take for Fast Five, the 4th sequel to The Fast and the Furious, could reach $30 million or so. Wow. I guess moviegoers are starved for some summer movie action after a few long weeks of animated movies dominating the top spot. If that information tracks, it looks like the film is poised to make at least $75 million over the weekend.

Film Review: Aimee Teegarden Discovers ‘Prom’ Isn’t So Bad

Chicago – There are many essential questions in life. What is my purpose? How do I find my place in the universe? Where did I put my mobile phone? But the most important of all, as Aimee Teegarden is about to experience, is who will I get to take me to “Prom.”

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Prom, a new film produced by Walt Disney Pictures, is old school. It’s not set in another time, it is set within a former teen movie framework. In the tradition of director John Hughes, Prom portrays high school as a character challenge, with all the highs, lows, heartaches and the strange hope that a transition of life has been achieved.

Nova (Aimee Teegarden) is little Miss Perfect. She’s class president, scholarship student and of course, head of the Prom Committee. Her world is turned upside down when the meticulous decorations for the ‘Starry Night’ theme are

Prom – The Review

Prom is pretty self explanatory. The film follows a group of teenagers from the same high school around the end of the year. Some are a little more excited about the big dance than others, and some are too young to go, but they still have to be surrounded by a school filled with prom-fever!

Of course, there needs to be some sort of a base, so the story mainly revolves around Nova Prescott (Aimee Teegarden), a goody two-shoes who has worked her tail off to get into Georgetown on a full scholarship. She is class president, a phenomenal student, and head of the prom committee. When a fire destroys all of the decorations that she and her committee worked so hard on, she is stuck rebuilding everything by herself… or so she thought. In a way to get back at a delinquent student, Principal Dunnan (Jere Burns) forces bad
