Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger was attacked at the Arnold Classic Africa while taking pictures with fans.
In the video below Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was at the Arnold Classic Africa to judge a skipping competition, can be seen being drop-kicked by a man who ran across the gym and attacked the 71-year-old Terminator star. After the man was detained by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s bodyguards, then man repeatedly shouted what sounds like “help me, I need a Lamborghini.”
Arnold Schwarzenegger appeared to be unharmed by the man’s drop kick. He left moments later surrounded by security. Later after posting a picture meeting fans for his Arnold Sports Africa festival, Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed he didn’t even realize he had been kicked, rather he thought he had been “jostled by the crowd.”

Thanks for your concerns, but there is nothing to worry about. I thought I was just jostled by the crowd, which happens a lot. I only realized I was kicked when I saw the video like all of you. I’m just glad the idiot didn’t interrupt my Snapchat.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to reprise his role later this year in Terminator: Dark Fate alongside Linda Hamilton. The film will feature a hardened take on Sarah Conner as she passes on the franchise to a new generation of heroes in what has been described for fans as a female-centric film. Mackenzie Davis also stars in the film along with other newcomers Natalie Reyes, and Gabriel Luna (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) who plays a brand new Terminator in the film.
James Cameron has returned to produce the film. Plot details remain under wraps, but the sixth Terminator film is a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, ignoring all the other films in the franchise much like the new Halloween. James Cameron previously said his major condition for returning to the produce the film was that Arnold Schwarzenegger would also return.
Tim Miller (Deadpool) has directed the film from a script written by Billy Ray, David S. Goyer, Justin Rhodes, Josh Friedman, and Charles H. Eglee. The script was developed in a writers room to stand on its own while simultaneously forming an overarching storyline for what is planned to be a new trilogy of Terminator movies.
Terminator 6 stars Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes, Diego Boneta with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton as Sarah Conner. James Cameron returns to the franchise as a producer and conceived the story with Tim Miller and Skydance’s David Ellison.
Terminator 6 will be released in theaters on November 1, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the sixth installment of the Terminator franchise as it develops!

Veteran X-Men producer Simon Kinberg makes his directorial debut with Dark Phoenix in addition to producing the film with Hutch Parker, Lauren Schuler Donner and Todd Hallowell. Dark Phoenix is expected to be Fox's final X-Men film featuring the core X-Men cast in the cinematic universe launched by director Bryan Singer in 2000 with the Disney-Fox merger now complete.
X-Men: Dark Phoenix stars James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Tye Sheridan, Sophie Turner, Alexandra Shipp, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Evan Peters, and Jessica Chastain. Here's the film's synopsis:
“This is the story of one of the X-Men’s most beloved characters, Jean Grey, as she evolves into the iconic DARK PHOENIX. During a life-threatening rescue mission in space, Jean is hit by a cosmic force that transforms her into one of the most powerful mutants of all. Wrestling with this increasingly unstable power as well as her own personal demons, Jean spirals out of control, tearing the X-Men family apart and threatening to destroy the very fabric of our planet. The film is the most intense and emotional X-Men movie ever made. It is the culmination of 20 years of X-Men movies, as the family of mutants that we’ve come to know and love must face their most devastating enemy yet — one of their own.”
Dark Phoenix is set to hit theaters on June 7, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the X-Men.
