"You been working out?"
With the acting comeback of Arnold Schwarzenegger in full swing, the first box office test for the former California governor comes with January's The Last Stand, which sees Arnold as a small-town sheriff who must stop an escaped drug kingpin and his gang from crossing the border. Schwarzenegger won't be backed up by any of the Expendables this time, but the latest trailer introduces his latest team, which includes Johnny Knoxville (Jackass 3D) as the comic relief, and Luis Guzman (Boogie Nights), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Rodrigo Santoro (300), and Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) as Schwarzenegger's deputies. capturing the latest trailers

Arnie wasn't lying when he said, "I'll be back."
The Austrian Oak, Arnie, the Governator, Ah-nuld, ...whatever you call him, Arnold Schwarzenegger is in a class all to himself. Born in Thal, Austria, in 1947, Schwarzenegger rose up from his humble background as the rebellious son of a local police chief in post-War Europe to dominate the world of professional body-building — three Mr. Universe and seven Mr. Olympia titles between 1968 and 1980 — and then he set his sights on Hollywood. Despite one mouthful of a last name and a thick accent, Schwarzenegger tackled Hollywood with the same zeal he put into bodybuilding, becoming Sylvester Stallone's chief competitor for the title of '80s action mega-star, starring in a string of monster hits that, all told, have earned over $3.8 billion at the worldwide box office.
After climbing as high as he could in U.S. politics (limited by the fact that he was born overseas), Schwarzenegger is once again in the entertainment business, popping up in a cameo role in Stallone's ode to he-man action movies, The Expendables, before playing a more significant role in The Expendables 2. Schwarzenegger will team up with Stallone again in the action-thriller The Tomb, take on Mexican drug lords as an aging small-town cop in The Last Stand and is rumored to be involved in some way with a planned fifth movie in The Terminator franchise. Whether Schwarzenegger's second act in Hollywood has a hope of matching his first remains to be seen, but let's look back on the movies that made him great and pick the best ones.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to acting is going very well. The former California governor is appearing this weekend in the action-star-filled The Expendables 2, while he's still hard at work with Sylvester Stallone on another action movie called The Tomb, which recently released its first photo. Before The Tomb, however, Schwarzenegger will go Stallone-less in The Last Stand early next year.
The movie sees Schwarzenegger play the sheriff of a small border town who is forced to stop an escaped drug kingpin and his gang of thugs before they can slip over the border to Mexico. Schwarzenegger won't be working alone, however, as he is joined by Luis Guzman (Boogie Nights), Jaimie Alexander (Thor), Rodrigo Santoro (300), Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) and Johnny Knoxville (Jackass 3D) as (seemingly) the town crazy and, obviously, the movie's comic relief. watch the trailer >> Posted 08.17.12 by Ryan
The Kate Beckinsale-centric promotional campaign for Underworld: Awakening — both the first and second trailers have focused on Beckinsale's return to the franchise after sitting out of the 2009 prequel Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, and she is the only actor featured on the new poster for the movie — continues with a new still image of Beckinsale as the leather-clad vampire Selene hoisting a hefty gun at an assailant. In Awakening, Selene wakes from a coma to discover that she has a Vampire/Lycan hybrid daughter (India Eisley) and that humanity is finally aware of the existence of the two immortal species and is engaged in an all-out campaign to wipe the creatures from the face of the earth. more Grrls with guns >> Posted 11.26.11 by BrentJS
Think all of those years practicing his politician's smile as the "Governator" of California has softened Arnold Schwarzenegger? Think again.Sure, Schwarz was all smiles when he tweeted from the set of The Expendables 2 a few weeks ago, but that was because he was hanging out with his old Planet Hollywood buddies, Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone. In his latest twitpic, taken on the set of his new movie, The Last Stand, Schwarz shows that he's still got the scowl and death stare that helped to make him one of Hollywood's biggest badasses. see the full pic & learn more about The Last Stand >> Posted 11.04.11 by BrentJS
Nicolas Cage would appear to be in at least half of the upcoming thrillers in line for release: Trespass currently playing in theaters, Seeking Justice awaiting a U.S. release date, and Medallion in post-production. Unsatisfied, Cage has added yet another thriller to his resume.
THR reports that Cage has been cast in the psycho-thriller Black Butterfly, alongside German actress Veronica Ferres. Cage will play a reclusive writer named Paul who goes against age-old advice and befriends a drifter which, for some reason, doesn't end well.
Based on a French TV thriller titled Papillon Noir, Black Butterfly will start production early next year in eastern Germany, which is appropriate since German production outfit Bavariapool is producing the movie for a mere $13 million, which means that Cage isn't picking the movie to help pay for his recent financial troubles, but will keep him out of the country for a few more months. Actor Brian Goodman, who made his directorial debut on 2008's What Doesn't Kill You, will direct the movie. More on The Last Stand's cast additions >> Posted 10.20.11 by Ryan
A biopic about Hall-of-Fame baseball star Jackie Robinson was first announced in June, and may be courting its first actor.
Vulture reports Jack Nicholson has been offered an unspecified role in the movie, titled 42 after Robinson's jersey number. The report speculates that Nicholson could be asked to play Branch Rickey, the Brooklyn Dodgers executive who signed Robinson to a minor-league contract in 1945. Rickey would sign Robinson to a Major League contract two years later, making Robinson the first African-American player to join the league.
Brian Helgeland, who wrote the screenplays for last year's Robin Hood and L.A. Confidential, and wrote and directed 2001's A Knight's Tale, is attached to write and direct the biopic, with Robinson's widow, Rachel Robinson collaborating to maintain biographical authenticity. more added to The Dark Knight Rises; Noreiga to take on Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand >> Posted 10.14.11 by Ryan
In June, Emma Stone (The Help, the upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man) decided to pass on the lead role of Elizabeth Bennett in Liongate's adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, but was hardly the only name associated with the role. Prior to Stone, the studio reportedly "flirted" with actresses Mia Wasikowska and Anne Hathaway without much results, while Scarlett Johansson was rumored for the part last year after Natalie Portman dropped out.
Recently, reports have revealed that Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively was offered the role and, after a few weeks of contemplation, it looks like Lively will put starring in summer box office bomb Green Lantern behind her as she takes on an exciting, high-profile role with a built-in fanba...wait, nope, she didn't take it, either. Didn't expect that. Variety writer Justin Kroll revealed the news on his Twitter.
