Apocalyptic and dystopian stories have always intrigued us. If societal structure was to break down, the void left behind would expose the basest of human impulses. And over the last century, movies have taken a sick sort of pleasure in showing us what the worst case scenario might look like, with ominous features of the future mirroring the most pressing concerns of the present.
Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »
Artist Josh Ln wants to know what's going on inside your favorite cyborgs. Well, okay, not necessarily the brains, but in his "Decommissioned" series on his Society6 page, Ln has created original art that details what the anatomy of these iconic characters looks like, piece by piece. Get More »
It feels like ages ago that Arnold Schwarzenegger made his most famous promise (no, not the one to Maria Shriver) when he declared, "I'll be back." Well, it turns out he might just be a man of his word after all—at least when it comes to his career. The actor-turned-politician-turned-actor is, indeed, coming back… to his most famous role, that is.
During a press conference in London for "The Last Stand," Schwarzenegger revealed that he will appear in the next "Terminator" film, which is currently being developed by producer David Ellison, Bleeding Cool reports. Get More »
It's cool being a hardcore fan of something — "Star Wars," Robert Downey Jr., Gerard Butler romcoms (okay, just kidding, nobody is a fan of those) — but fandom can have its downsides. Many fans, for instance, sometimes have a hard time objectively seeing the positives and negatives of the thing they love so much.
Case in point: A Massachusetts high school principal has just been suspended for two days after introducing himself to his new student body by means of a really bizarre "Terminator" parody. Get More »
Cyber Monday? Put away your wallet and forget about online shopping for a few minutes.
Yes, avid online shoppers are still on their post-Thanksgiving holiday shopping blitz, scouting out the best Cyber Monday deals, but movie lovers have their own special day to celebrate: Cyborg Monday.
Today is a day to give thanks for all your favorite cinematic cyborgs: The Terminator, R2-D2, Andrew Martin (remember "Bicentennial Man"?) — even WALL-E can get in on this action. So pop in your favorite robot movie, make yourself a tinfoil hat, talk in a robot voice, whatever you need to do.
Happy Cyborg Monday, from your friends at NextMovie!
We love our mothers. We wouldn't be here without them. As the years tick by, we become grateful for all the stuff that Mom bugged us about at the time – eating our vegetables, not sitting too close to the television, wearing warm clothes, paying attention in school, etc.
But sometimes, we wish our moms were a little cooler, and more like the ones we see in movies. Our moms grounded us for calling people names and wouldn't let us go to concerts. Movie moms fought killer robots, let their sons tour with rock bands... Our moms freaked out if we got home late, but movie moms are just glad you survived your fight with an evil wizard or supervillain. Get More »
If there's one rule governing the animal kingdom, it's this: You do not mess with Mom. Ever. If you come between a mama and her cub, you will lose. They're the most terrifying force in the animal kingdom, and they'll do anything to protect their babies.
Of course, you don't need science to tell you that. You know Mom can always be counted on to swoop in like a cookie-baking Batman, knock out a bully, and take you home for story time. (That reminds us, have you bought her a present yet?)
Movies may not get a lot right (physics, romance, book adaptations), but for the most part, they do right by moms. Especially tough moms. Cinema is packed with gun-toting, take-no-prisoners, willing-to-die mothers, and they're all so inspiring that we hated cutting it off at 9. But we did, and here are the Baddest Muthas in Movies. Add your own at #10. Get More »
Looking good is one thing. Looking good and kicking ass simultaneously is quite another, as Kate Beckinsale has proved time and time again in the "Underworld" movies. You think wearing that skin-tight leather bodysuit while leaping, running, shooting automatic weapons and beating Lycans to a pulp is easy? Have you ever tried it?
In honor of Beckinsale's newest ass-kicking showcase, "Underworld: Awakening," not to mention former MMA star Gina Carano's buzzed-about turn in "Haywire" -- and just to be sure we don't piss either of them off -- we tip our hats to nine female characters we wouldn't want to cross.
Next to these babes, we'd be toast. Get More »
