You can crush the Terminator franchise under industrial machinery or lower it into liquid steel, but like the titular figure, this series keeps doggedly crawling along.
According to Arnold Schwarzenegger, the fifth installment will being production early next year with the former California Governor playing a Terminator once again, three decades after bringing the T-800 to menacing life.
Former Telemundo TV series actress Genesis Rodriguez is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood!
After a recurring role on HBO’s Entourage, Rodriguez has appeared in a string of popular movies with some of Hollywood’s biggest stars including Man on a Ledge with Sam Worthington, Casa de Mi Padre with Will Ferrell, What to Expect When You’re Expecting with Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez, and The Last Stand with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Most recently she appeared opposite Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy in the box office hit comedy Identity Thief, which will be available on Blu-ray and DVD beginning June 4th.
In the film, Rodriguez stars as Marisol, an assassin working for a crime boss that is hired to take down Melissa McCarthy’s Diana who sold him some bad credit cards. Marisol teams-up with a hitman named Julian (T.I.) but their plan for revenge becomes complicated when Sandy (Jason Bateman), an ordinary accountant who’s identity has been stolen by Diana, attempts to kidnap her in order to clear his name and get his life back.
I recently had the pleasure of attending a Los Angeles Dodgers vs. St. Louis Cardinals game at Dodger Stadium where Genesis Rodriguez had the honor of throwing out the first pitch. I was on the field when she threw the ball to her father, Venezuelan singer/actor Jose Luis Rodriguez, and afterwards we were escorted to a private box suite where I had a chance to speak with Rodriguez about her work on Identity Thief, as well as throwing out the pitch. The beautiful young actress discussed her work on the movie, acting with T.I., improvising with Melissa McCarthy, what she’s learned from working with stars like McCarthy, Will Ferrell, and Arnold Schwarzenegger, director Seth Gordon, creating her character, and which she likes more – making comedies or action films, as well as the honor of throwing out the first pitch, practicing for the event, tossing the ball to her father, and whether or not she is a Dodger fan.

Just this week we heard straight from Arnold Schwarzenegger himself that he's still on board to play the T-800 again in the planned Terminator 5. He's also hoping to launch Triplets, a sequel to Twins that will add Eddie Murphy to the genetic soup with he and Danny DeVito. Before he gets to either of those, though, Schwarzenegger is set to reprise his role as Hyboria's most dangerous barbarian in The Legend of Conan.
Both the star and producer Fredrick Malmberg have offered their thoughts on very different aspects of the project, with the erstwhile California Governor addressing his age and Malmberg expressing his desire to get the Weta Workshop involved.
The fifth Terminator movie is slowly but surely chugging along. Contrary to recent belief, it turns out that Terminator 5 won't have to use a digital Arnold Schwarzenegger like Terminator: Salvation, since the former bodybuilder and two-term California Governor will indeed play the T-800 again.
Three all-new wide releases hit on this Martin Luther King Jr. weekend, and those three have politely arranged themselves regularly throughout the top ten, with Mama in first place, Broken City in the middle at fifth, and Arnold bringing up the rear with his ostentatious return The Last Stand in tenth place.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is back!
The legendary action-star left Hollywood to become the Governor of California almost a decade ago and now finally returns to the big screen with The Last Stand, which opens in theaters on January 18th.
The former-Governator appeared in a minor role in his friend Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables and The Expendables 2, respectively, but has not starred in a major movie since ‘2003s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. However, the actor has stayed very busy since resigning from politics having shot the upcoming film The Tomb, also co-starring Stallone, and toying with the idea of returning to two of his most successful franchises with new installments of Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator, as well as Triplets, which is the proposed sequel to Twins co-starring Danny DeVito.
But first Arnold can bee seen doing what he does best … kicking ass in The Last Stand. The new film, which was helmed by South Korean director Jee-Woon Kim (I Saw the Devil), stars Schwarzenegger as the Sheriff of a Mexican boarder town who must defend his community from a dangerous drug cartel leader (Eduardo Noriega) on the run from the FBI and trying to escape to Mexico. In addition to Schwarzenegger, the film also boasts an impressive cast of supporting actors including Johnny Knoxville (The Dukes of Hazzard), Rodrigo Santoro (There Be Dragons), Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World), Luis Guzman (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), Zach Gilford (Answers to Nothing), Peter Stormare (Dylan Dog: Dead of Night), Harry Dean Stanton (The Avengers), Genesis Rodriguez (Casa di Mi Padre), and Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker (A Dark Truth).
I recently had the pleasure of attending a press conference for The Last Stand, along with several other members of the press, and had a chance to hear what Arnold Schwarzenegger had to say about his new film, his big screen comeback, leaving politics behind, doing action scenes at his age, working with director Jee-Woon Kim, the Newtown tragedy, and his advice to Congress.
Opening in theaters on January 18th is the new action film The Last Stand starring former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, which marks his first leading role in a movie since Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. The film was helmed by South Korean director Kim Ji-woon (I Saw the Devil) and in addition to Schwarzenegger also stars Johnny Knoxville (The Dukes of Hazzard), Rodrigo Santoro (There Be Dragons), Jaimie Alexander (Thor: The Dark World), Zach Gilford (Answers to Nothing), Genesis Rodriguez (Casa de Mi Padre), Luis Guzman (Journey 2: The Mysterious Island), Peter Stormare (Dylan Dog: Dead of Night), Harry Dean Stanton (The Avengers), and Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker (A Dark Truth).
IAR's Managing Editor Jami Philbrick recently had the pleasure of sitting down with the beautiful Jaimie Alexander to talk about her work on The Last Stand. The talented actress discussed her new movie, meeting Arnold Schwarzenegger for the first time, shooting guns with The Terminator, what he's like on set, and working with a director who needs a translator.
Synopsis: After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez, the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy. With the help of a fierce band of lawless mercenaries led by the icy Burrell, Cortez begins racing towards the US-Mexico border at 250 mph in a specially-outfitted Corvette ZR1 with a hostage in tow.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is a movie star.
Actors disappear into their characters and the world of their films. Riding their charisma, movie stars dictate both and are, to a certain extent, themselves onscreen. The almost eight years Schwarzenegger spent as the improbable Governor of California meant that he was limited exclusively to brief cameo roles, but now that his gubernatorial tenure is over and he's kept his head low after a public scandal, Arnold Schwarzenegger is once again properly starring in action movies.
In The Last Stand, Schwarzenegger plays a small town sheriff who wrangles the town's eccentrics to stop a wanted drug lord from making it to the U.S./Mexico border. IAR's Jami Philbrick participated in the movie's press conference, and we'll have plenty more The Last Stand goodies coming your way closer to its January 18th release. Today, we're looking further into the future. While promoting his first cinematic vehicle since Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Schwarzenegger shed some light on his new Conan adventure, the Twins sequel Triplets, and even the possibility of teaming up with fellow muscle-mountain Dwayne Johnson.
