Arnie's Back With The Terminator

Like the titular murderous cyborg, the Terminator franchise has been through the wringer but just keeps coming. And now there is a big development with the announcement that Arnold Schwarzenegger is aiming to return to the character that kicked his career into hyperdrive with a brand new outing.

According to Deadline, the only parts of the package that exist right now are a deal to develop a new film with Schwarzenegger attached to star and Jumanji/Against the Ropes producer Robert Cort shepherding the project. It’s being offered around to all the studios and given Arnie’s inclusion, it’s not hard to imagine that one of the companies could leap on this like a hungry dog.

There’s likely to be especially strong competition from Universal and Sony/Lionsgate, with the latter pair particularly interested since they were beaten to the rights at the last auction by Pacificor, a hedge fund company that won them back in 2010 with a bid of $29.5 million.

But Universal has also apparently been trying to manipulate the new movie, aiming to put Fast Five director Justin Lin in place to get the tale of man vs. machine moving again.

Agency powerhouse CAA is pimping the new deal and everyone is aware that the rights have a built-in expiry date: in 2018, all the US rights to the characters revert to James Cameron, which might explain why there’s now a renewed interest in getting movies made before the creator of the Terminator universe can shut anything down.

So while Arnie has plenty of new projects bubbling away, including his planned Governator cartoon and rumoured links to Ji-Woon Kim’s Last Stand and Antoine Fuqua’s The Tomb, it could be one of his old roles that kicks off his post-government return to acting.

But with a hefty price tag, it remains to be seen if Skynet’s story will be continued… Or even rebooted. If it goes ahead, do you think they’ll opt for Schwarzenegger as he looks now, and put out a T-800 with killer wrinkle action? Or use CG-trickery a la Terminator Salvation to age him back to his glory days? Sound off!

Immortals Trailer Online

Following on from an embarrassingly lo-res unofficial leak and a less-than-enticing debut behind host chatter on a US entertainment show, the first full trailer for Immortals has now arrived properly online and can viewed below.

Directed by The Cell’s Tarsem Singh, Immortals is set among Greek myth and legend, with the brutal and ambitious King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) rampaging across Greece in the hopes of securing the lost Bow of Epirus, with which he aims to take down the Gods and cement his entry into the annals of history.

Naturally, the men (and women) upstairs – Zeus (Luke Evans), Poseidon (Kellan Lutz) and the rest – aren’t too pleased with that plan, but they’ve sworn not to interfere in the affairs of man. But that doesn’t stop them subtly pushing forth a hero, Theseus (Henry Cavill), a born leader with a destiny who can rally the forces of good and stand against Hyperion’s bloody tide.

This first real glimpse of the movie is the clearest indication that when you blend ancient myths with sweaty blokes and a director known for his stylish attention to detail, you’re more often than not going to end up with something that’s a little like 300. While the producers – who incidentally also helped bring the world Zack Snyder’s graphic novel adaptation – might like to talk up the differences, this early blend of slow-mo and footage that leans heavily on the bronze filters doesn’t really do them any favours. Still, it could be a lot of fun.

Watch the trailer below and let us know your thoughts.

We’ll get a proper chance to judge when Immortals hits our screens on November 11.

Zorro Heading For The Future?

Swirling capes and swishing swords are looking like the new trend – or perhaps we should say re-trend – as following on the heels of the new Three Musketeers and fresh interest in The Lone Ranger, 20th Century Fox is apparently planning a futuristic version of masked hero Zorro with Zorro Reborn.

Zorro hasn’t swished his sword on the big screen for six years now, ever since the Antonio Banderas-led Legend of Zorro in 2005 failed to recapture the box office magic of 1998’s Mask of Zorro. But according to the LA Times, Fox thinks it might just have a take that can rehabilitate the character.

Lee Shipman and Brian McGreevy, whose Dracula-adjacent Harker script now has Jaume Collet-Serra and Warner Bros. attached, have taken Johnston McCulley’s hero and transported him from his usual 19th century California/Mexico setting to a barren, post-apocalyptic future, where, one assumes, there’s a lot of easy-to-find desert terrain in which to set a new adventure.

While the studio has staunchly refused to comment, there is apparently already a director, with “pre-visualisation specialist” (essentially creating the images and animatics to show directors what complicated effects sequences will roughly look like on screen) Rpin Suwannath stepping up to direct. Though he hasn’t held the job before, he’s worked on The Matrix sequels, the X-Men films including First Class, Serenity and a wealth of other projects, so he’s rubbed shoulders with some experienced directors. Looks like we’re going to find out if his previous job was enough training to translate into the big gig.

This one appears to have been cooking for at least a year now, with Sobini Films spearheading the developing and hatching the deal with Fox. But this is the first time that the setting has been revealed. Now the main question will be – who’s going to take over the mask, cape and sword and start carving Z shapes across a dangerous future landscape?

Renner Joins Ice Age: Continental Drift

While he seems to be loading his schedule with high profile projects recently, Jeremy Renner is also finding time to have a little fun, agreeing to voice a character in the fourth Ice Age outing, Continental Drift. And he’s not alone: Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer, Wanda Sykes, Aziz Ansari and hip-hop singer Drake are also aboard.

Though most of the new characters weren’t revealed at a meeting for likely promotional partners at 20th Century Fox. Renner’s playing Gutt, described by the Hollywood Reporter as “a self-styled master of the high seas.” Lopez is Shira, a sexy sabre tooth who wins the heart of Denis Leary’s Diego.

The new arrivals are joining the established ensemble, which includes Leary, John Leguizamo, Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, Seann William Scott and Josh Peck.

You can see the appeal of the Ice Age movies – not only has the trilogy released to date earned nearly $2 billion, but it’s a fairly swift gig for most of the cast, with just a few recording sessions spread out over several months. Plus Fox and Blue Sky are clearly happy to keep going back to the well – the companies are planning a Christmas TV special and tie-in games for both mobile devices and the ‘net.

Ice Age: Continental Drift itself is out on July 6 next year.

Paul Walker Fires Up Vehicle 19

Paul Walker Fires Up Vehicle 19

Given that he spends an awful lot of time behind the wheel in films, you might think that Fast & Furious veteran and intense stare perfectionist Paul Walker would follow the likes of Takers and Fast Five with something that didn’t involve auto-mayhem. Nope: he’s signed on to star in and produce indie thriller Vehicle 19.

South African director Mukunda Michael Dewil has written the script for the film, which will find Walker as an unsuspecting traveller in a foreign land who accidentally drives off in the wrong rental car.

But instead of an annoyed call from the local branch of Avis, he’s soon wrapped up in a web of corruption spun by the local coppers.

Walker’s agreed to lend what executive producing muscle he can to the film (we guess spending years avoiding Vin Diesel’s drip sweat gives you some cachet) and will head to the set in South Africa at the end of summer. After that, it’s likely Universal will want him back to make yet another Fast & Furious film, give the credits sting in the current (amazing) effort. Maybe he’ll find time to squeeze in a drama where he’s trapped on a sofa for the entire running time…

Zac Efron Will Die In A Gunfight

"Live fast! Die in a crash!" yelled Ministry, and Zac Efron looks set to almost take that advice when he turns up on set for Die in a Gunfight, on its way from MRC.

Efron has been attached to the film since December, but it's just landed a director in the form of music video and commercials helmer Anthony Mandler (who's also attached to the Dracula's-early-years pic Vlad). The script, by the just-out-of-college Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer, made the 2010 blacklist, and will see Efron play "a fight-prone and death-obsessed young society man who pursues a romance with the daughter of his father's enemy."

It sounds sort of like Romeo and Juliet via Brett Easton Ellis, so while the romance is still there, maybe this is just the edgy project Efron needs to break him out of his High School Musical / Charlie St Cloud typecasting. If what he really wants to do is bust some heads, we salute him.

Tim Story Will Think Like A Man

Those popular psychology titles just keep finding their way from the self-help shelves to the desks of Hollywood screenwriters. Following He's Just Not That Into You, and with Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus on the way, next on the list is Think Like a Man, which Tim Story has just signed to direct.

The book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Relationships, Intimacy and Commitment, is by Steve Harvey, who hosts a nationally syndicated morning show in the US. His thesis is that women don't understand men because they ask other women for insights, when only the guys themselves can really tell them what makes them tick.

In the film, Harvey will be played by Kevin Hart (Death at a Funeral) as a self-professed relationships expert who's keen to dish out advice left, right and centre. The trouble is, his own marriage is floating perilously close to the rocks, so he'll need to Think Like a Man if he needs to set things straight. Whether he'll also fly like an eagle, walk like a panther, leap like a salmon and prowl like a lion remains to be seen.

The screenplay's been put together by Keith Merriman and David A Newman (Friends With Benefits), and Fantastic Four and Barbershop director Story will need to get his cameras rolling ASAP, since Sony has already set a release date of April 6, 2012.

First Avengers Set Pic Online

Ladies and gentlemen, it just got real: The Avengers is definitely, 100% really, truly filming. And to celebrate the production kicking off, Marvel Studios handed Entertainment Weekly the first image from the set, an amazing, epic unbelievable picture of… some chairs.

Yes, OK, so maybe the chairs themselves aren’t that thrilling, but look at the names! And look where they’re sitting, right under the sexy big S.H.I.E.L.D. logo. Yeah, now you’re all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, though quite why some of you have tails is frankly something we don’t want to think about. No offense meant to Empire’s huge canine and feline readership, by the way.

Anyhoo, to go with the photo, the studio also confirmed some casting, with Tom Hiddleston officially locked in to play Loki and fellow Thor cast member Stellan Skarsgard returning as Professor Eric Selvig, an astrophysicist dedicated to finding the link between Asgard and Earth. You might want to have a peek at the post-credits scene in Thor, which opens today, for a clue as to what they might be involved with.

They’re joining the already-assembled Avengers cast, which includes the obvious Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Samuel L Jackson, Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Cobie Smulders, Scarlett Johansson and Clark Gregg.

Joss Whedon is even now calling the shots… Wait, no, now he’s playing Doodle Jump on his phone… OK, now Kevin Feige has taken his phone away and a grumpy Joss is back at the video village in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with filming scheduled to move on from there to glamorous New York City and, er, lovely Cleveland, Ohio later this year.

On Sunday, Whedon got into the action, posting a message about the start of production as only he can: “Tomorrow we start shooting (I THINK I'm legally permitted to say that). Day one. That's right. We'll be shooting the pivotal death/betrayal/product placement/setting up the sequel/coming out scene, at the following address:

[Marvel Lawyers rush in, take Joss's keyboard, blowtorch a picture of his family like in "Stormy Monday", drink his milkshake, leave the seat up, fluff his pillows, violently unfluff his pillows, leave.] Went too far.”

You can read the full statement, brimming with typically Whedonesque humour, over on his fan site. Marvel's The Avengers will arrive on screen on Friday May 4 next year.

Tube Continuous - freebigtittube.com videos

The reasons for making, sharing and distributing amateurs sex videos varies from person to person. However, some people are under the illusion that it is a simple task to earn a substantial living from making Free Big Tit Videos.

While it is true that there are those who do indeed earn revenue from their free amateurs sex videos, the percentage is very small. It is important to take into consideration certain factors before considering it a business venture rather than an enjoyable hobby:

Competition
There are hundreds of thousands of free amateurs sex video already on the internet and if you get any income at all it would be based on views. Unless you have a big marketing budget to promote your particular Big Tit Porn Tube, you are unlikely to get enough page views to be able to leave your day job.

Quality
While it is true that those who look at amateurs sex tube are obviously looking for amateurs porn movies, as opposed to professionally produced videos, they still want quality. A cheap webcam in a dimly lit room is not going to produce quality videos by any stretch of the imagination. You will need to invest in some basic equipment and make sure that the setting for your amateurs tube video will produce the desired effect.

Uniqueness
If you have thought about an idea, someone has probably already done it. Think you are outrageous? Have you checked out what is already available on free amateurs tube? So it is unlikely that you will come up with a new angle, new fetish or new genre. Which means that you have to make your amateur tube video stand out in other ways.

Research
As with any business venture you will need to do your research to ensure the best chances of success. If you want to see what type of amateurs porn movies are most popular, go to a site like www.freeamateurstube.com and check out which videos get the most views and votes. This will tell you if there is a certain pattern emerging, or certain type of video that is popular. Why reinvent the wheel when you can take an existing idea and improve on it!

The point of the story is that 99% of those producing free amateurs sex videos are doing so for enjoyment, a hobby, a little spare cash or simply because they love sex and they are proud to show themselves on amateurs sex tube.

Devil's Double Trailer Arrives

It’s been a little longer than we thought, but after a side trip to Sundance and some good reviews, Iraq drama The Devil’s Double is finally on track for release. And now the trailer has arrived, which can be watched below.

Starring Tamara Drewe’s Dominic Copper in the dual lead roles, Double unspools the crazed true story of Latif Yahida, an army lieutenant plucked from the ranks because of his close resemblance to Saddam Hussein’s son, Uday.

Yahida was selected to become Uday’s body double, positioned to throw off attackers and to stand in for him at certain events. Given a choice between complying or seeing his family slaughtered, Yahida agreed and was thrust into Uday’s debauched world of power, greed, lust and madness. Soon he’s desperate to escape, but caught up in the Hussein world.

Take a look at the trailer and let us know your thoughts.

Directed by Lee Tamahori and also featuring Ludivine Sagnier, Philip Quast and Jamie Harding, The Devil’s Double is out on August 12.

Russell Crowe May Direct 77

Somewhere in his garden at home, Russell Crowe must have a pit where he goes and throws scripts of dramatic films he’s planned to direct, never to be seen again. But despite his history of flirting with, then dumping possible directorial debuts, he’s at it again, circling the idea of picking up the megaphone for 77.

The crime drama has quite the pedigree, since it was birthed by LA Confidential creator James Ellroy and turned into a script by Law & Order writer David Matthews. Taking the viewpoint of two police officers, it connects two events: the unsolved murder of an LAPD officer in 1974 and a famous shootout between the force and the Symbionse Liberation Army (made famous by the kidnapping and eventual recruiting of Patty Hearst. That second incident unravelled in the media spotlight as the standoff saw 400 cops laying siege to the Army’s house, which left several members dead and the place on fire.

Though Crowe has documentary experience with Texas, the film about his band 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, this still sounds like an ambitious project to pick as the first time behind the camera for a movie, and it remains to be seen if Crowe actually goes for it instead of one of his next acting jobs. According to Deadline, he’s waiting for the latest script draft before making his decision. No pressure, then…

New Swinging With The Finkels Quad

New Swinging With The Finkels Quad
Exclusive: Extreme wife swap

New Swinging With The Finkels Quad

Movie marriages can be tough. When the sparks fades and all those moonlit visits to the Empire State Building are a distant memory, on-screen couples have to work hard to keep the magic alive. Masque orgies (Eyes Wide Shut) and car key parties (The Ice Storm) are extreme solutions, but, let's be honest, they somehow overlook the saucy charms a chubby man in a gimp collar.

This new poster for Swinging With The Finkels is damned if it's going to make the same mistake. Plonked awkwardly in the middle of all this sexualness are Mandy Moore and Martin Freeman as the titular pair, Ellie and Alvin Finkel. They play a London couple whose relationship is fast disappearing down the gurgler, until the collapse of their friends' marriage inspires them to... well, the title should explain the rest.


The quad give a flavour of a movie taiming to be reprise the kind of awkward comedy of manners British filmmakers used to do so well.

Swinging With The Finkels is written and directed by Jonathan Newman, adapting his own short film film 'Sex With The Finkels' for the big screen. It's out on June 17.

New Screwed Poster Online

Have you ever been in a Turkish prison, Joey? Failing that, how about the slightly more comfortable option of a British prison movie? Well, if that's your bag then you might like Screwed, the upcoming Brit-thriller based on Ronnie Thompson's semi-autobiographical book and directed by Reg Traviss. And here's a sneak peek at the UK quad poster.

The film stars James D'Arcy as a soldier returning from Iraq and taking a job as a prison guard. There he discovers the seamy underworld to the correctional business, with corruption among the guards as well as the prisoners.

For those of you worried that the name is a bit rude, please be aware that "screw" is slang for "prison". The film also stars Noel Clarke, Jamie Foreman, Kate McGowan, Ray Panthaki, Doug Allen and Frank Harper. Screwed is out on June 3.

Beckinsale Offered Total Recall's Lori

Despite the fact that he had a laundry list of actresses interested in the roles of Lori and Melina for the remake of Total Recall, it seems director Len Wiseman has gone another way – towards the woman he’s married to. Yes, Kate Beckinsale has been offered the part of Lori.

If she takes the role (which wouldn’t surprise us, since the pair clearly likes to work together after meeting on the Underworld franchise), Beckinsale would be the wife of Douglas Quaid (Colin Farrell), a worker in a factory for the nation of Euromerica who, after having a holiday memory implanted, starts to believe he might be a spy for rival country New Shanghai.

Once he starts to peel away the layers, he discovers he’s part of a much bigger conspiracy, one engineered by Euromerica’s leader, Vilos Cohaagen (Bryan Cranston). Assuming they haven’t tinkered with everything, the Lori character (played in the original by Sharon Stone) also turns out to be more than she seems.

Wiseman is still choosing from a likely pool of players for Melina, a rebel in the original who ends up aiding Quaid. According to Deadline, Eva Mendes and Rosario Dawson are among the front-runners for the role.

Shooting on the movie kicks off in May, aiming at a release on August 22 next year.
