Terminator: Genisys tease for tomorrow’s trailer

OK, so tomorrow is not long to wait, but here is a brief (and we mean brief) teaser trailer for the actual full trailer for Terminator: Genisys.

The trailer doesn’t feature a hell of a lot but its enough to whet the appetite for fans of, let’s face it, an exhaustive franchise.

It features a cool shot of a T-1000 aboard the top of a police car, the Earth taking a battering, a ship of some description and of course Arnie himself, complete with exoskeleton arm.

The new film sees Arnold Schwarzenegger return to one of his most famous roles, and he’s joined by Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones), Jai Courtney (Divergent), Jason Clarke (Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes) and Matt Smith (Doctor Who).

Emilia Clarke will be the new Sarah Connor while Courtney plays Kyle Reese and Jason Clarke is John Connor. There is no clue yet as to what role Matt Smith is going to play. Hopefully there will be know Tardis involved!

Terminator: Genisys opens in the UK on 3 July 2015.

Check out the teaser below…

Expendables 3 exclusive trailer

Sylvester Stallone and his team of badass expendables are back, and the trailer below is packed with enough stars, action and amazement to get any fan of the franchise going.

Regular expendables Statham, Li, Lundgren and co, not forgetting of course Schwarzenegger, are joined by new recruits Snipes, Banderas and Ford.

This time they come up against Mel Gibson’s cooly named arms dealer Conrad Stonebanks (I mean, who comes up with these names?) Who helped to form the expendables and is looking to take them down.

I love the fact the likes of Wesley Snipes and Antonio Banderas are in this, both of whom played the baddie opposite Stallone in Assassins and Demolition Man respectively. It’s also brilliant to see Harrison Ford getting a look in.

For years action fan boys of the 80s and 90s had only dreamed of seeing all their heroes sharing the same screen, but it became a reality in 2010, and it hasn’t really disappointed since.

OK, so the scripts have never been water tight, it might have a few plot holes here and lacking believability, but I’m sure many of us don’t care about the finer points.

As long as they are kicking ass and we get to see some cheesy lines delivered by our action idols then you already have my money.

If you weren’t convinced that the third film is going to pack a punch then watching the trailer should eradicate any doubt.

There are some jaw dropping big budget action set pieces including a helicopter train rescue, an insane motor bike jump and a load of big guns and bigger one liners!

The Expendables 3 opens in the US in August this year and should hit UK screens not long after, it will be reviewed in a future post.

Escape Plan – 2013

escape plan posterWhen a structural-security authority finds himself set up and incarcerated in the world’s most secret and secure prison, he has to use his skills to escape with help from the inside.

Directed

Stars

What we think: For those of us that grew up watching action films in the 80s one can only stand by and admire that Stallone and Schwarzenegger are still going well into their 60s.

Clearly they’re having fun, which is a good thing as we’re not expecting Oscar material here and those that are may as well leave now.

Escape Plan gives the two giants top billing opposite each other for the first time the whole way through a film (not counting The Expendables), but ultimately they’re on the same side.

Ray Breslin (Stallone) breaks out of prisons for a living, making sure that those who are put behind bars have no way of ever getting out .

When a job comes up to test out a top secret facility Breslin gleefully accepts despite his partners thinking otherwise, it leads him on to a collision course with Arnie who he needs to get onside in order to get out.

Of course once inside its clear that some people have no intention of letting him see the light of day, and Breslin is trapped behind a prison that encompasses everything he wrote the book on.

He teams up with fellow inmate Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) in an attempt to break out and bring those responsible for setting him up, to justice, and that is where the fun begins.

THE TOMB

Schwarzenegger is enjoying himself even if the dialogue is not the best, like we said, we’re not expecting Oscar material. He does however get the good lines and pretty much acts as the diversion as Breslin scampers around looking for breaks in the system.

 is Hobbs, the warden of the facility, in what is actually quite a good turn as the classic pantomime villain, a throw back to the baddies of the mid eighties. He plays it cold and calculating, which in some parts feels like he’s going a bit OTT.

Beneath him is Vinnie Jones, type cast as the bog standard henchmen who is not particularly needed and to make matters worse probably gets one of the worst henchmen deaths. We don’t regard that as a plot spoiler as most villain side kicks end up biting the bullet as the stop gap between the hero and the classic ending battle.

There are no illusions going into this, you know exactly what you’re going to get right down to the obvious plot twist that you can see coming a mile off. A sub plot is only touched on briefly but its a sub plot that has been a staple part of any revenge plan.

The film has a strong third act once everything has been set up and it unfolds in a pulsating twenty minute finale which includes quite possibly the best slow motion shot for some time, nodding itself to most classic action films of the Arnie era.

It’s meat and two veg action of maybe not the highest order but certainly better than some of its more recent predecessors, Stallone and Schwarzenegger bring their action A-game and don’t disappoint for a second.

First look at Arnie in The Tomb

Recognise this guy, yea it took us a few seconds to realise who it was as well. Arnold Schwarzenegger is back with Sylvester Stallone again, this time in The Tomb.

Here’s what IMDB say about it.

“Ray Breslin is the world’s foremost authority on structural security. After analyzing every high security prison and learning a vast array of survival skills so he can design escape-proof prisons, his skills are put to the test.

He’s framed and incarcerated in a master prison he designed himself. He needs to escape and find the person who put him behind bars.”

The film is due for release next year and also stars Jim CaviezelVincent D’Onofrio oh and a certain Vinnie Jones and is directed by Mikael Håfström.

Expendables II Trailer Explodes Online

Well it’s the trailer that every action fan in the world has been waiting for, and oh my god its a beauty!!

Packed with even more testosterone that will surely have you nailed to your cinema seat the trailer gives a little more insight into how badass the film is going to be!

What’s great about it? Well….Willis as the main villain, the return of most of the previous cast including Stallone, Statham and Li new recruits, Chuck Norris, Van Damme and the piece de resistance big Arnie equipped with even bigger gun.

The plot details are still unknown but we’re pretty sure it will centre around a susicide mission for our heroes and some of the most ridiculous action sequences ever.

Simon West of Con Air fame will be directing and he has experience of bringing together big name actors in a balls and all action epic so we’re pretty sure this one is going to be just as good if not better than the first.

Expendables 2 is out in the States late August next year, so expect it to hit UK cinemas some time after that!

Check it out…
