Thursday, July 30, his 73rd birthday said, “Terminator” and former California Governor, bodybuilder and businessman Arnold Schwarzenegger. They say that in the age of 15, he told friends that in the future he will move to US will become a Hollywood star and marry a girl from the clan Kennedy.
It is unclear bike or not, but the dream, apparently, come true. On the occasion of the birthday of the “iron Arnie” LeMonade offers to remember the six most brilliant of his roles.
“Conan the barbarian”, 1982. This movie played a big role in the career of “iron Arnie” as a future movie star. The painting was originally conceived as a blockbuster, so the main role is invited bodybuilder, who has already managed to Shine on the screen. All the stunts in the film, Schwarzenegger fulfilled itself – just no understudy with a similar physique. The film, which has already become classics of fantasy, then received the cash and the love of the viewers.
“Commando” ( or “Commando”), 1985. The classic Thriller of the 80s. For those Who caught the era of video clubs, the film hardly needs any introduction. In order to convincingly play the role of retired military and the man whose daughter was kidnapped, Schwarzenegger hired an acting coach. Interesting facts about the film include the fact that for the duration of no one, including the main character – Colonel Matrix, recharges weapons.
“Predator”, 1987. The film tells about the struggle of the professional American military with the alien creature in the jungles of Central America. In this picture Arnold Schwarzenegger played the role of major Alan “Dutch” Schaeffer. The film took the 366-th place in the list of 500 best films according to Empire magazine. It is noteworthy that the role of the Predator initially invited Jean-Claude van Damme, but he was significantly Programul Arnie in height and body type.
“Running man”, 1987. In this fantastic dystopian, filmed on the novel “king of horror” Stephen king (the novel came out in 1982, and was written under the pseudonym Richard Bachman), Schwarzenegger played a COP who refused to shoot from a helicopter of the participants of a hunger riot. The main role initially approved Christopher Reeve, then Superman and the star of the 80’s, But then decided to take a young Arnie, and even remade it under the concept of the picture. The film flopped at the box office, was not liked by the king, it is strictly prohibited to mention his real name in the credits. But thanks to the video “Running man” has managed to become a cult band.
“Total recall”, 1990. It Schwarzenegger persuaded the company to Carolco to buy the rights to the film, and after negotiations about his own fee was brought in as Director Paul Verhoeven, whose “Robocop” was very fond of him. And again for the sake of Arnie story a lot. Instead of the clerk the main character was a work, instead of the wishy-washy Quayle appeared sonorous Quaid. Full-scale shooting took place in Mexico, and Mars were filmed in the halls.
“Terminator 2. Judgment day”, 1991. The role of the Terminator – a cyborg from the future, was a great acting success in the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The image of a relentless machine-killer has captivated the public, though replicas of the actor have been once or twice and obchelsya. But the role of the “good” cyborg in a fantastic continuation of the Saga, released in 1991, was even more successful. For it in 1993, the national Association of theatre owners even Schwarzenegger was awarded the title of “International star of the decade”. And who today does not know the famous “I’ll be back”, which occupies the 37th place in the list of hundreds of famous quotes from American films in 100 years, according to AFI.
Junior, 1994. A Comedy in which Schwarzenegger played the role of Dr. Alex Hesse, a researcher who is forced to become pregnant because of the circumstances. I wonder what Arnie before filming consulted with midwives, to see the way women act in the position. The companion frame was the comedian Danny DeVito, with whom they had filmed the Duo worked the movie “Twins”. The way Hesse Schwarzenegger was even nominated for a Golden globe in the category “best male role”.
