Arnold SchwarzeneggerArnold Schwarzenegger is surely back. The former Governor of California has already taken close-to-center stage in the first "Expendables 2" poster, and now he's showing off just how much he's willing to endure during his long awaited return to the action movie arena.

"Got a little banged up on set today," Schwarzenegger tweeted from the set of "The Last Stand," his modern Western currently shooting in New Mexico. He posted a photo revealing his banged up forehead, along with a smirk that practically shouts "no problemo."

"Thanks to the medical staff who got me back in action an hour later!" he added.

Check out your Daily Twitpic after the jump.

SchwarzeneggerArnold Schwarzenegger is coming back to acting. This we know. We also know that James Cameron is locked-and-loaded for two developing sequels to "Avatar." Throw those facts in together with Cameron and Schwarzenegger's "Brazilian adventure" and you've got… well, a whole lot of conjecture.

Let's pedal back a bit. Last night on Twitter, the former Governator posted a curious photo of himself and Cameron, his longtime collaborator through "Terminator" and "True Lies," huddled around a laptop on an airplane.

"Excited to take off on a Brazilian adventure w/ @JimCameron," he wrote. "Stay tuned for updates from the rainforest."

Schwarzenegger's tweet got us wondering — might that "Brazilian adventure" have something to do with a little planet called Pandora?

If I were Jerry Bruckheimer, I'd draw out the production of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" for as long as humanly possible. The movie is shooting in Hawaii, the United States' very own version of paradise. "Lost" was filmed there too, and as the series started to wrap up, those involved were frequently heard saying in interviews that they would miss the yearly, months-long trip to the tropical island setting.

Images from the set of the fourth "Pirates" movie have been slowly trickling into the world, both from spy cameras and from Bruckheimer directly, via his Twitter feed. And that's what I have for you in today's Daily TwitPic. You don't get to see any of the stars in this pic, or anything particularly magical or otherworldly. You do get a glimpse of the deep blue water and some kind of funky-looking old-timey boat though. All the pic needs is the words "Wish You Were Here" emblazoned across it. Read More...

I'll always have a soft spot in my heart for the genius of "Weird Al" Yankovic. His musical parodies were theme songs for my teenhood. Was a time when I could recite the lyrics to every song on "Alapalooza" from beginning to end, along with every line from "UHF."

I never sent him a fan letter though. And it's a good thing too, as today's Daily TwitPic shows us exactly what Al thinks of his fans! Okay, that's not true. I'm sure he loves us all. But those fan letters pile up, don't they? The many boxes seen in the pic found after the jump contain what Al claims are his fan letters from the '80s. The thing is, I can't tell if he's serious or not. This is "Weird Al" Yankovic we're talking about. Those could just be boxes of old clothes, or CDs containing potential songs for parody that ended up in the "no" pile. Or it really could be fan letters-- I can easily believe that that many would have piled up over the course of the decade that saw the release of "I Want A New Duck," "Fat," "Lasagna" and "Living With A Hernia."

To be fair, "some dude" is actually Karl Pilkington, star of the Ricky Gervais/Stephen Merchant-produced UK TV series, "An Idiot Abroad." I haven't seen the show, but the premise apparently involves sending Pilkington on a globe-spanning adventure designed to take him "out of his comfort zone."

None of that has anything to do with today's Daily TwitPic, other than the fact that Gervais is among those pictured. The headline pretty much nails what's worth advertising here though. Warwick Davis, the star of "Willow" and a noted actor in various "Star Wars" and "Harry Potter" movies, wants to give his pal Ricky some orange juice. Pilkington, who in an apparent inside joke has an orange-shaped head (I suppose it is rather round), is Davis' obvious target. I don't see any OJ leaking out. It doesn't matter. The picture is ridiculous. Read More...

It's been awhile since I last had a Miley Cyrus edition of Daily TwitPic for you. The pop star made the (probably wise) decision to sign herself off of the microblogging service for good, thus ending a regular flow of updates from the world of Hannah Montana's real-life counterpart.

Lucky for you fans, Cyrus is shooting a movie right now with someone who does use Twitter pretty regularly. She joins Demi Moore in the upcoming remake of the 2008 French film "LOL: Laughing Out Loud." In today's TwitPic, Cyrus and Moore smile for a photo op during what appears to be a night off with "LOL" writer/director Lisa Azuelos and her daughter. The movie is supposed to hit theaters sometime next year. Read More...

Yeah, today's Daily TwitPic doesn't exactly have anything to do with movies. But Snoop Dogg was in a movie. Quite a few of them even. So there you go.

It wasn't a movie that brought the much-loved emcee to New York City earlier this week. It was, in fact, a young man by the name of Justin Bieber. The pint-sized pop star performed at Madison Square Garden earlier this week. A sizable camera crew was on hand to capture the action for the Bieb's upcoming 3-D movie, as were a veritable parade of guests. One of whom, of course, was Snoop.

Today's pic captures the Dogg backstage at the show, posing for a photo op with the lovely Vita Chambers, who is lending her voice to the second half of Bieber's ongoing tour. Read More...

I'll warn you now, today's Daily TwitPic is hard to look at. It's obviously not real, but special effects folks are doing incredible things with latex and makeup these days.

What I can't figure out is where this photo comes from. I initially saw it and thought, "Huh, I didn't know Michael McKean had a 'Piranha 3D" cameo." That's because he didn't have one. But the state of his arm in the image after the jump could certainly have come from that set. Nasty stuff.

All McKean has coming up right now is "City of Shoulders and Noses," the synopsis for which reads as follows: The son of a renowned sculptor and a beautiful Italian heiress must endure the deranged behavior of his stepmother, while his friends help him unlock the thirty year-old mystery of his parents' murders in New Haven, Connecticut. Doesn't sound super-gory, right? It's also in pre-production. Bring your guesses here to the comments section. And seriously-- if you're squeamish about gore, even fake gore, think twice before hitting the jump. Read More...

I can't take things like this on a Monday morning. Granted, it ran on Friday night. I didn't peek at it until now though.

"Twilight" isn't anything new on this blog. Hollywood Crush handles most of the heavy lifting in that regard now, but I still cover the Stephenie Meyer franchise when it seems relevant to the larger world of movies. Frankly though, I'm not sure who today's Daily TwitPic is relevant to.

British rock & roll group Motorhead has been around since the mid-'70s, but there's been only one constant in the band: bassist, singer, songwriter and founder Ian Fraser Kilmister, a man known to most of the world as Lemmy. A rock god personified. I'm not sure what brought him and "Eclipse" actor BooBoo Stewart together for the photo op after the jump, but it is an undeniably bizarre sight.

Also, can I be the first to say that "Breaking Dawn" should open with "Orgasmatron" playing over it? Read More...

(Weird-- I wrote this this morning and it somehow didn't publish. If you're reading this now, then I've fixed it.)

I'm not sure I really need to justify my reasoning for making a picture of kickass character actors Michael Madsen and James Woods the subject of today's Daily TwitPic. Does the raincloud explain why it lets loose with a thunderstorm? No. It's just nature, man.

Between the two of them, Madsen and Woods have more than 300 acting credits, including a handful that are in active production or development. Madsen is of course a Quentin Tarantino favorite, perhaps most memorably playing Mr. Blonde in "Resevoir Dogs." And Woods is as veteran as veteran actors come, to the point that he's even poked fun at himself and his career in separate appearances on "The Simpsons" and "Family Guy." The photo was taken and tweeted by Michael's brother Virginia,

Also-- notice the gun at Michael's hip? Read More...
