There’s some big news coming out of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s upcoming films so let’s discuss the good and bad news of each film project. First up, we can now report that the rated R “Why We’re Killing Gunther” looks like it will not be getting a big theatrical release as we had all hoped for. Saban Films, who deals with many very limited theatrical releases and On-demand titles, will handle distribution so “Gunther” looks to be another smaller scale project similar to Maggie and Aftermath. It is said that Arnold takes these smaller budgeted film projects because he loves to work in-between big-budget films and to give fans a bonus treat.

It also appears that the title has now shrunk down to just “Killing Gunther”. We agree, this shortened tile is better and we’re all highly anticipating this film’s big laughs and action on October 20th, 2017. See it in select theaters and hopefully one within 50 miles of your town! If not, enjoy it from the comfort of your home with On Demand while having an Arnold movie marathon with some friends!

Killing Gunther marks Killam’s directorial debut and follows “a group of eccentric international assassins who become fed up with Gunther, the world’s greatest hitman who also happens to be an arrogant show-off, and decide to kill him. Their master plan, however, quickly turns into a series of embarrassing encounters as Gunther always appears one step ahead.” 

Now for the good and bad news of "Journey to China”! First the bad news is that we will have to wait until February next year to see this Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan film. The good news is that according to one of the movie’s producers - Alexey Petrukhin, Schwarzenegger plays one of the main characters! Schwarzenegger will play the Constable of London Tower, and he will stage a mixed marital arts fights among the prisoners - with the winner being granted his freedom. 

Petrukhin refused to reveal any plot details, but did say the audience will be treated to an epic battle between Schwarzenegger and Chan!
