Arnold Schwarzenegger Movie History

Since 1969 Arnold Schwarzenegger has been on the silver screen acting, producing, and directing. He has been apart of millions of peoples lives through his films. Whether you love him or hate him it is hard to argue that Arnold Schwarzenegger is one the most influential action heroes to this day. Arnold Schwarzenegger has been a giant part of my cinematic life growing up. He has been in some of my favorite movies; Predator, Terminator 2, Total Recall, True Lies, just to name a few. And I still watch all of his movies to this day. He went from being the top body builder in the world to having very few lines in his movies to people craving to hear his notorious Austrian accent & notable one liners to headlining numerous films. Arnold has proven and continues to show he can dominate the action hero role in any movie thrown his way, can play serious characters, and he seems to always add humor to his characters.

From Hercules to 7x Mr. Olympia to the Terminator to being the Governator of California, Arnold continues to surprise his fans today. Arnold has two movies coming out soon, Terminator Genisys & Maggie. Arnold also has a couple other movies announced to start filming in the coming year or two; The Legend of Conan and Triplets. I am excited to see Arnold still acting and continuing the Terminator legacy.

What caught my eye while watching the new trailers was the two different Arnold’s. There was an aging dark haired Arnold and a young Terminator to silver fox Terminator. Besides both movies being added to my list of movies to watch; I was a little distracted by Arnold’s change of age and thought to myself; Arnold has always maintained his bodybuilder physique but he has had quite a few different looks throughout his, multiple decade, acting career.

Lets take a look into the history of Arnold and the looks he has taken on over his cinematic career.
