The Terminator series has been leaving audiences thrilled, chilled, and cheering for over 35 years with its cutting-edge action, unforgettable characters, and unique insights into humanity, technology, and destiny.
We wanted to get the real scoop on what makes the latest installment, Terminator: Dark Fate the perfect android heir to the Terminator throne, and who better to ask than the stars of the film themselves? Watch our exclusive clips below to find out what makes a real Terminator movie:
Original Terminator stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger are reunited in the new film, and they couldn’t be more excited to build on a working partnership that created one of the world’s most iconic movie franchises.
Sure, the Terminators are trying to kill us. But if Skynet created them, and we created Skynet, and they keep coming back no matter how we change the timeline, what does that say about us? Original action hero Linda Hamilton has some thoughts.
As a lifelong fan of the series, villainous newcomer Gabriel Luna wanted to make sure that the new film lived up to the Terminator standard. Here’s what he thinks of the final result.
The eight-episode docuseries will follow the
children of famous athletes including Zaire Wade, Evan and Elijah Holyfield,
and Vashti Cunningham, with additional names to be announced

win gold at the 2020 Olympics. The series will also shadow Evan and Elijah

Holyfield. Evan is following in his father’s footsteps and pursuing a
professional boxing career, while Elijah has chosen a different path as an NFL

Gemini Man is a pulse-pounding, high intensity sci-fi thriller exploring the nature of identity, the moral limitations of technology, and the duality of man (literally), but take a closer look and there’s even more beneath the surface.
The big-budget story of a retired assassin going head-to-head with his younger clone (both portrayed by Will Smith) is the culmination of literal years of programming, image-capturing, and fine-tuning by 500 artists at six visual effects studios.
The younger Smith is no de-aged performance; he’s a fully-articulated, computer-generated model made from whole cloth by the best VFX designers in the business. The first of his kind, “Junior” represents a lightyears-ahead leap forward for sci-fi and the film industry at large. Partly reconstructed from 90s performances by Smith like Bad Boys and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, partly based on motion-capture by the current-day actor, the fully-3D model represents untold possibilities for the future of filmmaking.
If you’re ready to witness this technological breakthrough first-hand, you can pre-order Gemini Man right now ahead of the Monday 12/23 release and get a bonus $3 Vudu credit to spend on whatever you like (details here). Now’s your last chance to get the bonus credit, so don’t wait because the future arrives faster than you think.
Witness the next evolution of movie magic with Gemini Man in up to 4K UHD on Vudu.
With so much amazing content available to rent, purchase, and watch for
free on Vudu, there’s never been a better time to be a Vudu customer. We know you
love being able to watch the latest movies and TV shows anytime, anywhere, but understand
you also want to make sure that every member of your family is having a safe,
appropriate viewing experience every time they open up Vudu.
In a Variety
article highlighting exciting developments at Vudu, our VP and
general manager Jeremy Verba noted that “families are increasingly viewing
together, and they need tools to help them make sure the content is
appropriate.” So many of our loyal Vudu fans have asked for more and better
family viewing options to help screen for objectionable content, and in
response we are proud to unveil our new suite of customizable family features that
you can adjust to your family’s needs and preferences.
While some movies may simply be too adult for kids to watch, others may
contain a few instances of objectionable content that if skipped over, can be
enjoyed by everyone. That’s where Family Play comes in by letting you skip or
mute objectionable content like substance abuse, language, violence, and sex
and nudity. It is currently available on over 500
eligible titles, with new titles added each week.
We know every family is different, so we’ve made sure you can select
the content you’d like to avoid while leaving in everything else.
If nudity and drug use are deal breakers for your family viewing but
violence is ok, simply turn on Family Play, select those options, and hit play.
If the kids go to bed and you want to watch the rest without skipping, just
turn off Family Play without leaving the movie and keep on enjoying the show.
You can also create a four-digit pin to prevent kids from turning off Family
For even more flexibility, set up Family Play only on the devices you
want. Looking to use it on the family TV, but not on your tablet? No problem. Family Play is currently available on web, iOS
and Android devices, and select Samsung TVs (excluding 2017), newer LG TVs
(2017 models and up), and Xbox One. Get complete details here.
