Crazy Commando Deleted Scene Had Schwarzenegger Killing a Bad Guy with His Own Arm

Crazy Commando Deleted Scene Had Schwarzenegger Killing a Bad Guy with His Own Arm
Arnold Schwarzenegger had the best idea for Commando. The actor dropped the Terminator: Dark Fate trailer on social media this morning, which resulted in an impromptu Q&A with fans. Schwarzenegger has been in the news quite a bit lately with the release of the new Terminator movie on the horizon and his recent attack in South Africa, where an unidentified man snuck up behind Arnold and dropkicked him in the back, though Arnie barely registered it thinking he'd been pushed by the crowd. Video of the incident has since gone viral.

While answering fan questions on social media, Arnold Schwarzenegger was thanked by an audience member and reminded of good deeds he has done over the years.

Seymour Cassel Dies: Oscar-Nominated Actor In John Cassavetes & Wes Anderson Pics Was 84
Seymour Cassel, an Oscar-nominated longtime actor whose 200-plus screen credits include several John Cassavetes movies and three for Wes Anderson, died Sunday of Alzheimer’s complications in Los Angeles. He was 84.

Cassel scored a Supporting Actor Oscar nom for Cassavetes’ 1968 film Faces, a role that also earned him a trophy from the National Society of Film Critics. He appeared in about a half-dozen of Cassavetes’ films and also acted opposite him in a few others. Anderson cast Cassel in his films The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou (2004), The Royal Tenenbaums (2001) and Rushmore (1998).

Cassel also was active in pre-merger SAG politics, running for national president in 2007 and 2009.

Born on January 22, 1935, in Detroit, Cassel’s film debut was an uncredited role in Cassavetes’ Shadows (1958). We would co-star alongside the filmmaker-actor in the early-’60s movies The Webster Boy, Too Late Blues — which Cassavetes also helmed — and The Killers, which was Ronald Reagan’s last movie.

‘Clueless’ Is Getting the Remake Treatment
Oh, you thought “Clueless” wouldn’t get remade eventually? As if. Deadline reports that Amy Heckerling’s teen classic will be the latest ’90s favorite to see new life, with “Glow” writer Marquita Robinson on screenplay duty and “Girls Trip” writer Tracy Oliver producing. Per Deadline’s report, the project is in the earliest stages of development and details are scarce; it’s currently unknown whether “it’s a fresh new take for the millennium and if older characters will be reprising their roles.”

Heckerling both wrote and directed the 1995 film, a loose adaptation of Jane Austen’s 1815 novel “Emma” starring Alicia Silverstone as a wealthy teen navigating high school and everything that goes with it in Beverly Hills. Paul Rudd, Brittany Murphy, Dan Hedaya, Stacey Dash, and Breckin Meyer all co-starred in “Clueless,” which earned $56.6 million at the box office and became a cult classic.

Ryan Reynolds movies: 15 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Deadpool,’ ‘The Proposal’
On the occasion of Ryan Reynolds’ 42nd birthday on October 23, Gold Derby takes a look back at the actor’s film career and chooses his greatest 15 film performances. Tour our photo gallery above to see how they are ranked from worst to best.

Born in Canada the actor started acting at a young age when he landed a role on a Canadian television teenage soap opera. He then proceeded to work in both Canadian and American television, ultimately finding minor fame on the moderately successful sitcom “Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place.”

Reynolds managed to pull off the unthinkable in 2016 when he managed to get a Golden Globe nomination for Best Comedy/Musical Actor for “Deadpool.” That is a bit of a rare achievement since superhero films and awards rarely go together.

Blood Simple Screens Tonight at Webster University

“If you point a gun at someone, you’d better make sure you shoot him, and if you shoot him you’d better make sure he’s dead, because if he isn’t then he’s gonna get up and try to kill you.”

Blood Simple screens at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood) Tonight August 29th. The movie starts at 7:30.

The Coen Brothers’ startling debut, Blood Simple is about a murder that is anything but simple.1984 is when it all began for Joel and Ethan Coen and it’s the kind of thing they still do well to this day. The story centers around seemingly normal people getting in way over their heads with dangerous crime. There are dozens of prolific directors who could have made this story into a pedestrian crime thriller, but it always helps when the story idea comes from the person who directs a movie.
