On Wednesday morning, TheArnoldFans will be off to San Diego to attend our 9th consecutive Comic Con and to bring the fans the best possible coverage for everything in the Schwarzenegger universe. Many of you action hero fans are pumped hitting the Lionsgate booth to pick up a bunch of free Expendables 3 swag but there's so much more to look forward to at this 4.5 day pop-culture mega event! If you're going to the Con this year, you'll want to follow my "Schwarzenegger Survival Guide" to be sure you get the ultimate experience!
We've got some celebrating to do, Arnold fans! It's JULY and that means two things: NUMBER 1. SABOTAGE will be released Tuesday the 22nd! NUMBER 2. July also happens to be Arnold's birthday month! Thanks to our friends at Universal Studios, they've given us an "Arnold Action Pack" blu-ray collection to award an awesome fan! The Blu-ray pack includes the following movies: SABOTAGE, CONAN THE BARBARIAN and TOTAL RECALL! All you have to do to enter is bake Arnold a birthday cake (or cupcake) OR make Arnold a hand-drawn birthday card (no photoshop) and write on top "Arnold, Happy 67th Birthday!" It can say a different message however the number 67 must be there. All cakes and cards (even sloppy ones) will be entered and the winner will be declared on Arnold's birthday (July 30th)!
lthough there will not be a Lionsgate Expendables Comic Con panel this time at San Diego's Comic Con, that does not mean there will not be a strong EX3 presence there. It is unfortunate that the lead actors and biggest box office draw from the film (Stallone and Arnold are not confirmed to attend), we know a few of the actors will still be on hand to meet their fans and sign autographs.
London, UK – The world premiere of THE EXPENDABLES 3 will take place in London on August 4 ahead of its theatrical release on August 14..
Ever since the round of leaked photos from on and near the set of the new Terminator movie, it seems that measures have been taken to clamp down on security and secrecy, as very little has come out of New Orleans lately. While that unfortunately means I haven't had much to post about here, I'm actually happier that we're not seeing too much information leaked, since even little things like seeing which characters are in a scene together and makeup effects can be spoiler-ish.
Once again, it’s time for Arnold Day, the annual and wildly popular celebration of all things Schwarzenegger. But, this year they are celebrating a milestone - one decade of celebrating Arnold’s birthday with a 14 hour movie marathon, costumes, quotes, beer/food specials, sponsors, t-shirts, and of course - cake.
Although actor Stephen Lang has not starred in a film with Schwarzenegger (yet), we know that this star shines bright within Arnold's universe! Like Arnold, Lang has been directed by James Cameron as an unforgettable bad guy. Lang has also had a lead role in Conan the Barbarian (although not the version we love) and they both share a birthday in July. But the strongest connection Stephen Lang has to Arnold is the fact that he narrated Schwarzenegger's audio book, Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story!
In the early 90's, Jeff Dawn, the Academy Award-winning lead make-up artist who transformed Arnold into cyborgs for the first three Terminator films, hired Jonathan Bickart to sculpt two bronze busts. Over many weeks, Jeff worked with Jonathan and a pile of photos to capture the perfect essence of The Oak. The one Jeff gave to Arnold lived in his office for years and could still be there. Yet there is another and Jeff kept the second one for all these years…until now.
His name is Tony Doherty and like Arnold, he is a rags-to-riches story. Like us Arnold Fans, SCHWARZENEGGER was his idol growing up but now he is business partners with Arnold! This is Tony Doherty: Bodybuilder, IFBB Pro Promoter, Host of Muscle TV and father of four. This is his Story.
Remember the glory days of your toy-collecting-youth when nothing beat the figures of the late '70s and early 1980s? Today it's a strong competition amongst the toy companies as to who can do the best likeness, color schemes or articulation. The modern era of action figures is perhaps becoming stale but no toy line is getting me more excited than seeing what Funko/Super7 has in store for us!
