  1. Matt Smith Has Reportedly Landed a Big Role in the New Terminator: Genesis Trilogy

    He'll need your clothes, your boots, and your police box.

    Get ready, nerds: two of your favorite time-travel franchises are colliding. Well, in a way— Doctor Who's Matt Smith has reportedly landed a role in the new Terminator trilogy (because there's no such thing as a standalone sci-fi movie anymore) that will grow into a major character over the course of the story.

  2. “Terminator” Polymer Discovered, Capable of Healing Itself

    Skynet due to overtake humanity at any moment. No city is safe.

    Spanish scientists, who have apparently never seen a James Cameron film, have developed a new polymer that spontaneously heals itself. Dubbing the material the “Terminator” polymer, after the T-1000 (played by Robert Patrick in Terminator 2), the scientists maintain that the material’s true use is to improve the lifetime of everyday plastic products.

  3. Terminators Getting New Video Game, Probably Don’t Get Your Hopes Up

    Do you really need to be back?

    Does it feel like the early 90s in here to anyone else? It should, because you're getting a brand new video game based on the first two films in the storied Terminator franchise. Publisher Reef Entertainment has just bought the Terminator game rights from StudioCanal, and have a game based on the first two movies in development right now.

  4. Arnold Gets Replaced With Woody Allen in This Terminator/Sleeper Mashup [Video]

    This is too much. Far too much.

    YouTube user OneMinuteGalactica made this video for the Slacktory channel, and it takes the audio from the original Terminator trailer, but replaces it with footage from the bizarre Woody Allen film Sleeper. That's brilliant. We've posted a few of these kind of mashups before, and they're all great, or we wouldn't waste your time with them, but really -- Sleeper/Terminator? That's genius. Now I have to go home and see if I can sync the full movies up like Dark Side of the Moon and The Wizard of Oz.

  5. Insert “I’ll Be Back” Joke Here: Schwarzenegger Returning As Senior-Citizen Terminator

    Presumably, there is an age at which Schwarzenegger will be deemed unfit to play a killer robot. That age, though, is not 65.

    It just wouldn't be a Terminator movie without Arnold Schwarzenegger, would it? Well, we may never learn the answer to that question, as the now 65-year-old former governor of California is officially set to reprise his role as lovable killing machine T-800 in the next installment of the Terminator franchise. Presumably, this is all part of a standing bet between Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis to see who can continue playing a role a 1980s action movie that reason states they should have aged out of the longest. Unfortunately, that in turn means we can all expect to be subjected to Die Hard 6. Because otherwise, the machines win.

  6. The Navy Can Launch Jet-Sized Drones From Nuclear Aircraft Carriers Now

    This morning the U.S. Navy launched the unmanned X-47B drone from the USS H. W. Bush nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. The launch was a first of its kind, as is the X-47B, which is the first drone designed to take off from and land on an aircraft carrier. The X-47B is the size of a fighter jet, and can now be launched from almost anywhere in the world.

  7. Scientists Create Terminator Vision for Rabbits with HUD Contact Lens

    A U.S.-Finnish team has announced that they have successfully completed trials of a remotely operated heads-up display fitted against the eye in the form of a contact lens. Though the test used a rabbit and the lense contained only one pixel, it's a bold step forward that may someday realize the dream of being able to see like a Terminator. And really, what else could we hope for?

  8. Terminator Statue is Full of Other Movie References

    The above picture is the chest of an Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator statue that is on display at the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Orlando Odditorium. Created by Enrique Ramos, the life-sized statue is covered in references to Hollywood, including The Simpsons, Harry Potter, Rocky, Jaws, and The Wizard of Oz, among others. The statue took about five months to make using various materials (clay, resin, paper, plastic, etc.), and Ramos plans to make a motorcycle in the same style to complete the piece. Head on past the break to check out more pictures of the popculture Arnold.

  9. Terminator Dog Needs a Home

    This is Hachi, the sweet Akita/Chow mix from El Segundo, CA, and he's lucky to be alive. Hachi survived a house fire and was in bad shape when he was brought to an animal shelter. Hachi's Petfinder profile gives some idea of how dire his situation was:
    [...] third-degree burns covering over 60 to 70 percent of his body. He was nothing but a sweetheart from the time he was carried in - black and charred with the pads of his feet literally falling off.
    Thanks to some dedicated vets, Hachi recovered quickly and is now happy and healthy. He will be scared forever, though: fur will likely never grow back on the patches over his back and face, much of his left ear is missing. His appearance may prove to his benefit, as online commenters have been quick to point out the similarities between Hachi and The Terminator. Hopefully all this attention will get Hachi into a good home. Recently, blogs have been doing a great job of promoting the stories of animals in need and adorable but very disfigured pets. Maybe a California resident can give this distinctive pup a good home? Perhaps a certain elected official with a connection to a certain film franchise that the dog vaguely resembles?

  10. Cyberdyne Actually Exists on Real Life Earth and Builds Robots

    Um, good news ... ?: Japan-based research and development company Cyberdyne, which sounds familiar because it's not supposed to be real, has developed exoskeleton technology for humans that is controlled by human thoughts. The up-side: It allows people with little to no function in their legs to walk, using sensors that detect muscular stimulation when the brain thinks of it. The weird-side: What is a company called Cyberdyne doing creating though-controlled human exoskeletons?
