Arnold Schwarzenegger on ‘Sabotage’: ‘It Gets Better Each Time’

For director David Ayer, shooting “Sabotage” in Atlanta was helped along by a good old dose of Southern hospitality.

“We’d ask if it was OK that we were shooting Arnold Schwarzenegger blowing up the neighborhood and they’d say, ‘no problem,'” he said at Open Road’s premiere at L.A. Live’s Regal Cinemas Wednesday.

Joe Manganiello recalled that he had shot “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” in Atlanta during a torrid 2012 summer. When he returned a few months later for “Sabotage,” the weather had changed. “It was freezing, but the Southern hospitality is something else,” he said.

Ayer had the crowd laughing at the screening when he introduced the film as “a guilty pleasure,” but Schwarzenegger got the biggest laughs when he proclaimed he had seen “Sabotage” eight times.

“It gets better each time,” he added.

The after-party featured bowling and burgers at the Lucky Strike.
