“We have a way of doing it,” director Ivan Reitman insisted in January 2011 about a compelling way to make a third "Ghostbusters" film. “I wasn’t going to do it until we found out [what that way was], and it is a generational story, actually – it’s effectively a generational story and it’s very well written. We’ll see if it actually gets made. It’s a scary thing to think about for me, because I’m fucking with my past, but at the same time, I don’t just want to chicken out on the challenge. But it’s a great story and great characters.”

While the accountants in Hollywood spend Monday morning figuring out which movie came out on top in a tightly fought, though overall lukewarm weekend at the box office, no matter how it plays out, David Ayer will be happy. His latest cops-in-Los-Angeles flick "End Of Watch" took home decent notices, and was one of three angling for the #1 slot. And with his next cop movie "Breacher" gearing up to shoot in October, it already has a quote-worthy endorsement from its star Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Guys! Did you know that Arnold Schwarzenegger is old? Does "The Expendables" and "The Expendables 2" not meet your quota of Old People Jokes + Things Exploding? Good news: "The Last Stand" is one the way.

“The Expendables 2” is one of the very few films that gets better as it gets dumber. Serviceably directed, horribly written and barely acted at all except for a standout performance by (of all people) Jean-Claude Van Damme, it mostly delivers in the way that the original failed to, which is by enabling action stars to charm their way through an incredibly hackneyed and conventional storyline. Nevertheless an irresistibly fun alternative to the so-called grown-up fare that has attempted to replace the escapism of '80s and ‘90s blockbusters, “The Expendables 2” offers a welcome roundup of action stars who simultaneously – and satisfyingly – celebrate and send up their former glories.

After eight years of governating, are audiences ready for the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a regular big screen presence? With the actor closing in on 70, the window for action movie roles is quickly closing, but he's making the most of it. "The Expendables 2" opens this weekend, he's got "The Last Stand" arriving in theaters in January and he's getting ready to roll on the cop thriller "Breacher." And also on the way is "The Tomb," another flick with his buddy Slyvester Stallone, and the first official image has dropped.

Ever since his run as the governor of California ended, people have speculated about the future of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career. There were rumors of a return to the “Terminator” franchise as well as the long-gestating World War II film “With Wings As Eagles.” But while he’s set to return later this month in the sequel “The Expendables 2,” we’re more excited by his role in the new film from “I Saw The Devil” and “The Good The Bad The Weird” director Kim Jee-woon, “The Last Stand.”

The acting comeback trail for former California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a bumpy one marred by a scandal (which seems to have been forgotten), an attempt at a completely self-indulgent cartoon, but mostly just a dearth of solid projects worthy of bringing the lumbering talent back to the screen. One project has been shaping up quite nicely, with writer-director David Ayer (“Training Day,” “End of Watch”) behind the camera of police thriller (shocker) “Breacher.” Previously known as “Ten,” the film will follow 10 DEA agents who are marked for death following a heist during an drug enforcement operation. The production recently added Sam Worthington in an undisclosed role, and now has two more recognizable faces to add to the mix.

On June 12th, 1987, audiences around the country got their first look at that (to borrow one of the more quotable bits from the movie) ugly motherfucker that is "Predator." It heralded a number of promising new stars – most notably Arnold Schwarzenegger finally getting a bona fide blockbuster after sleeper hits like "The Terminator" and "Conan The Barbarian" – and director John McTiernan would emerge as one of the freshest, most stylish voices in action filmmaking since John Ford.

These days, after "Lord of the Rings" and "Game Of Thrones," fantasy isn't just big business, but it can also be an critically acclaimed awards favorite, picking up Oscars and Emmys by the handful. As such, it's easy to forget that prior to the 1980s, the genre barely existed on screen, with animated takes on Tolkein's works the only really significant pictures in the genre. But in 1977, "Star Wars," a film that owed as much to high fantasy as to science-fiction, became the biggest hit in history, and that opened the door to all kinds of new fantasy worlds.
