That title above might be a tad misleading, since Arnold Schwarzenegger has technically been back to acting since making a cameo appearance in The Expendables back in 201o. Well, technically his face made an appearance in Terminator Salvation (2009) via CGI – but it really doesn’t count unless you’re getting the actual flesh-and-blood Schwarzenegger experience.
Even with an expanded role in The Expendables 2, Schwarzenegger’s official return to the lane of action movie leading man won’t come until the release of The Last Stand, which hits theaters in the first weeks of 2013. Today we have a poster for The Last Stand - one that is sure to grab all those eyes who understand the nostalgic value of seeing “Ahnuld” standing tall and strong center frame on a movie one-sheet.

HBO found recent success by trusting in British comedy TV creator Arnando Iannucci for their series Veep starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Ricky Gervais has been bringing shows like Extras and Life’s Too Short for years. Now the cable network is looking across the pond yet again for inspiration.
The network has ordered a pilot for a U.S. adaptation of Getting On, a British medical comedy that is heading into its third season on BBC Four. Big Love creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer are writing the adaptation; series stars (and creators) Jo Brand, Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine are serving as executive producers.
The comedy takes place in a women’s geriatric extended care wing of a somewhat rundown hospital and follows a few nurses, some anxious doctors and hospital administrators as they deal with the harsh realities of caring for ...

“There’s always a downside” has been the Prime Directive of Warehouse 13 from the beginning and especially this season, so it’s only fitting an episode is named after it when things finally hit the fan. Episodes that are willing to shake it up a little bit are good because they don’t end up in a predictable rut, and this one is a prime example. For starters, Artie (Saul Rubinek) pairs Pete (Eddie McClintock) with Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) with Steve (Aaron Ashmore).
Both missions seem innocuous at first. Former Agent Hugo Miller (Rene Auberjonois) sends word that he’s come into possession of a bag of marbles with artifact properties, and down in New Orleans there’s a therapist whose patients are all being miraculously cured. As it turns out, Hugo’s artifact ...

Not long after receiving the news that The CW had canceled the Sarah Michelle Gellar thriller Ringer, its creators, Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder, have managed to garner some interest from NBC regarding a new mysterious-sounding gothic thriller to be set in New Orleans.
That is certainly good news for the writing partners, as Ringer went from being touted as the return of Buffy Summers and one of the most buzz-worthy shows of the 2011 fall schedule, to something of a dud in terms of what critics had to say about it and the ratings it managed to grab. Not surprisingly, after its initial 22-episode first season, The CW’s interest identity-swapping twin sisters waned, and network executives gave Ringer the boot.
The new series – which is being described as one “rich with tradition, superstition ...
