TERMINATOR: DARK FATE Featurette Teases Comic-Con (VIDEO/IMAGES) More secrets were uncovered at the Comic-Con presentation for Terminator: Dark Fate. Along with a new 90-second featurette (above; caution, strong language and violence), producer James Cameron officially announced a big surprise: actor Edward Furlong will reprise his role as John Connor in this latest chapter, which is serving as a direct sequel to [...]

Bland studio-hack helmer Tom Hooper (Les Miserables) takes the most obvious, least-creative approach to his adaptation of Cats, the daring Andrew Lloyd Webber musical that (love it or hate it; full disclosure, I love it) took huge risks in adapting poems by T.

Behind The Scenes Video Gives First Glimpse Of CATS Movie (VIDEO) It's not a trailer (that drops Friday), but it is a first look at the movie adaptation of the musical Cats.
