Late last night, after my daughter drifted off to dream of the splendor of the battlefield and ice cream and with the tapping of rain hitting my roof, I was able to sit down to watch a story about one of the greatest storytellers of them all. I was first excited to see that “Milius” was 1 hour and 43 minutes. Usually these types of films are a little over an hour and that’s all. What can you say?
Who would have ever imagined we'd be lucky enough to see the day when Arnold Schwarzenegger and Harrison Ford would star in the same movie?! If that's not already unbelievable enough, it gets even more incredible knowing Stallone, Mel Gibson, Statham and Wesley Snipes will also be kicking ass in the same film along with these legends. "Expendables 3" will no doubt be an event film that EVERY action hero fan will need to see on opening weekend.
Today I was in communication with T1-T3 make-up department head Jeff Dawn, who tells TheArnoldFans to whom he's passing the Terminator torch. Dawn applied the most memorable and iconic endo facial appliances onto Arnold Schwarzenegger in the first three films. Dawn will not be coming back to the franchise but he does wish the crew the very best.
While "Sabotage" might be chasing away general audiences domestically due to extreme violence or critics with low-foreheads, the film has yet to hit many international territories for release. If you haven't already seen this fantastic film, get ready for big action and a terrific cast. There aren't too many females in Sabotage but the ones who are in it, are some of the better characters (next to Arnold, of course)!
Considering the big upset with the Sabotage box office results, many fans are worried over Schwarzenegger’s future in film and especially concerned about the fate of King Conan. I know what you’re thinking: has Universal Pictures lost interest in King Conan? On the contrary; with the odds that Twins 2 will not be greenlit and with major enthusiasm from the movie studio and producers for another Conan adventure, King Conan will most likely immediately follow Terminator: Genesis!
SABOTAGE just came out (see it NOW if you haven't yet!) and we can already get pumped for Arnold's next role in EXPENDABLES 3! Lionsgate just launched a full website that gives us a glimpse of Trench Mauser toting a BIG gun and a new quip: "Eenie... meenie... miney... moe!" We also find out about the other characters, old and new, and get a glimpse of the plot.
For the second consecutive year, from April 25th to 27th, Rio de Janeiro will host the Arnold Classic Brasil, the largest multi-sport event in the world, created by the actor, politician and former bodybuilder, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Here's a news story that has NOTHING to do with Arnold so why am I about to share with you this Transformers exclusive interview with Titus Welliver? Well, for one I'm a big fan of the Transformers cartoon series and had nearly a hundred Hasbro Generation 1-3 toys. Second, Welliver is a big Arnold fan who insisted on attending the red carpet premiere of Sabotage!
Last week at the SABOTAGE Los Angeles premiere, I met Grinder, played by Joe Manganiello at the after-party and then sat down with him on the following day for a one-on-one interview. If you missed our PART 1 interview with Joe (talking deleted scenes and WWE RAW), then click HERE!
In the '80s and '90s, the name SCHWARZENEGGER was all it took to bring in an audience so let's think about what went wrong and if Arnold still has a chance at a prosperous future in films.
