When is it out? I hope it isn't anywhere near Tintin's release date, because it could spell major boxoffice problems for Spielberg and co.

Schwarzenegger to play himself in Stallone film

2 hrs 51 mins ago

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Art will imitate life when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger spends a few hours playing himself later this year in a movie by Sylvester Stallone.

Stallone's publicist, Sheryl Main, revealed more details Tuesday of Schwarzenegger's rare big-screen appearance. The governor said he has done just three cameos for friends since becoming governor in 2003.

Shooting on the film, "The Expendables," will begin March 28 in Brazil and move to New Orleans for two months. Main says the governor will shoot his scene in Los Angeles.

His role will be a familiar one: California governor.

Stallone writes, directs and stars in the movie, a film about a group of mercenaries trying to overthrow a South American dictator. It also stars Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke and Forest Whitaker.

Look at that cast! Wow! How could this possibly be a bad movie?!

I think it also stars that guy from the Transporter films as well, Jason (I can't think of his last name).

I had to laugh when I saw that cast list.

The Razzies are licking their chops in anticipation.

Yeah, I read about the cast a few weeks back, though Arnie hadn't been announced back then.

With a cast like that, this could quite possibly turn out to be the greatest movie of all time! It can't possibly fail, even it it turns out to be a mere guilty pleasure, I'm sold.

Fearless was supposed to be Jet Li's last martial arts epic, yet he continued to make crappy martial arts movies and even crappier non-martial arts movies. STOP MAKING MOVIES.

I never cared much for Pulp Fiction, its like new glossy wood paneling, slick and fresh looking, but its still wood paneling.

The most memorable thing to me about QT is that he'll always be that extra face in the background on the Golden Girls.

Too bad. I'm not familiar with them, but I was hoping Brad Fidel would get the job after his work on the video game. Either way, I really don't car about this film, rather I was just rooting for Fidel to get a high profile job.

Yeah, I just heard about that one. Looks like Sam Raimi is going back to his early years with that one....

Ooh, Alison Lohman is starring in it! I think she looks gorgeous!

I've got mixed feelings about this one, The Battle for Terra:

http://www.imdb.com/video/imdb/vi2148336409/

Visually, it looks like they turned the Homeworld series of video games into a movie. I'm not impressed with the voice acting, the characters all sound too tired or disinterested. The name "Terra" is usually reserved for this planet in science fiction, so I'm curious what's up with that. But the storyline, who they've cast as the antagonizers of the movie? Ugh.

Strange, it works fine for me...?

I guess it was just a temporary problem. Let's just hope if they do end up doing Evil Dead 4, it doesn't suck. I'll reserve judgment until Drag Me to Hell is released/reviewed.

Please no more Evil Dead, Army of Darkness was bad enough. I love the first two, but I wish they'd stopped there and then.

AoD is certainly the weakest of the trilogy, but that in no way makes it bad. Hell no.

It's like telling Star Wars fans that Return of the Jedi is a bad movie.

Army of Darkness is a whole different thing entirely. Hopefully, Evil Dead 4 will stick to the first. Either way, I'm all down for some Bruce Campbell goodness.

Because the movie gods love to punish the unsuspecting masses.

Why else would we be on another Fast & Furious film, other than to try and salvage what's left of Vin Diesel's career?

So if the original cast reunites to make Ghostbusters 3, but feature only as advisors to a younger crew of 'Busters, it'll basically be the mid-90s cartoon series turned into a movie. Hoo. Ray.

I want them to remake Star Wars with Scarlett Johannson as Princess Leia. Only please don't tape them down, please don't tape them down.

Well, as little as I care to see the first two Ghostbusters potentially trashed as well, it still beats being subjected to a third Men in Black (MIIIB?).

Apparently another Fast & Furious was what audiences wanted..... $72 million opening.

I know, will it still have it's legs next weekend?
