At long last, we have some juicy Terminator: Genisys news to report! With so little real info out there as far as official studio stuff, fans online don't really know whether to be excited or dreading the newest entry in the franchise. Thankfully, there will be an official teaser trailer coming out soon, but if you absolutely can't wait for it, we have a fairly detailed description of it to share.
"Nice night for a walk." That simple line was Arnold's first dialogue in what would be a pivotal role as the cyborg killing machine, "The Terminator," which was released in theaters October 26, 1984, 30 years ago. Conan was two years prior and was also a key film for Arnold, but Terminator is what really launched him into superstardom.
TheArnoldFans had some recent opportunities to speak to a few famous rock stars and accomplished musicianswhile they’ve been out promoting their new projects so naturally we asked them all about fitness and pumping iron. We chatted with Joe Perry, Sarah McLachlan & Nikki Sixx (formally of Mötley Crüe).
Fright Rags will release a fantastic Terminator box set featuring an Endoskeleton mask with Light-Up Eyes and a Limited Edition T-Shirt. The Endo Mask and T-Shirt come in retro style box packaging! You're going to want this as soon as it's up for pre-order since there are only 1,000 total are being produced. The retro style box and mask is inspired by the old Ben Cooper costumes that some of you may remember from your childhood if you grew up in the late '70s.
TheArnoldFans caught up with Terminator producer, Gale Anne Hurd, while she was out promoting her new season of "The Walking Dead." The last time we spoke with Gale, she admitted to us that Terminators would win in the fight against zombies, even though her zombies are powerful enough to be in the number one television series.
During recent film promotion for the new film, John Wick, we had the opportunity to chat with Keanu Reeves about Bill & Ted, George Carlin and pumping iron. Not only does Keanu mention Bill & Ted 3 in his online responses, he also talks about possibly doing Marvel's "Dr. Strange" and chats with us about hitting the gym!
While we should all be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of The Terminator this month, some sad news rains on our party. It turns out that we've lost one of cinema's greatest on-screen motels. The Tiki Motel, where John Connor was conceived in a night of passion, closed its doors for good. Our own Christoph Peitler shares this unfortunate report:

Although Terminator: Genisys won't be hitting theaters for another nine months, TheArnoldFans was able to get in several questions to one of the lead actors while Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese) was promoting UNBROKEN, his upcoming film. Jai talks endoskeletons, Terminator toys, a fitness role model and the high probability of the Terminator's rating.
There was a feeling of deja vu as I was standing outside on a cool cloudy day in Columbus with a gathering of local journalists, politicians, and fans near a giant black shrouded statue. It was just in 2012 that I was watching almost the same event, only at a different location. But seeing Arnold give another rousing speech is always a good thing!
