The New Terminator Movie Is Called…

Two More Terminator Movies on the Way

[size=6]Two More Terminator Movies on the Way[/size]

[quote]Don’t expect killer robots to stop rolling off the assembly line anytime soon.

With the upcoming fifth Terminator movie set to arrive July 1, 2015, two more films in the franchise are on the way. They’ve targeted May 19, 2017 and June 29, 2018 for termination, and since they’ll be released only a year apart, they’ll be shot back-to-back.

Expect the new films to pick up after the events of the fifth movie, titled Terminator: Genisys. That’s expected to reboot everything in a new timeline, similar to the 2009 Star Trek film. Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back, and he’ll be joined by newcomers like Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke, Dawn of the Apes human Jason Clarke, and Die Hard 5 co-star Jai Courtney.

I’d like to forget the 2009 film, thank you :wink:

That said, after T3 and Salvation, the series needed to be rebooted. I wouldn’t mind if they brought back the TV series and made the movie work with it. Fox desperately needs a TV show worth watching…

That’s somewhat creative. They ought to bring back Robert Patrick as the Liquid Metal Terminator too. Not only for nostalgic value, but because Race Bannon needs a break from the terrible show that is CBS’ Scorpion.

I wouldn’t mind seeing some modern Arnold movies. The problem that I’ve had with them is that they have none of what made the classic Arnold movies good, similar to how The Expendables series has none of what made the 80s action flicks in general good.

My line of thinking here is that Arnold himself has aged quite a bit so it seemed fitting to have an older Terminator.

Maybe they’ll expand on the whole time travel and add some quantum/parallel reality stuff to expand the terminator universe.

[/quote]you mean like the blatant “us” (USA) vs. “them” (USSR), cold war, pre-internet mentality? Yea, I say that’s a good thing…and I like me some Invasion USA/Red Dawn.

Going through the trailer again, I think that the premise of the making a new timeline could work. It’s also one of the few trailers that I’ve seen that doesn’t tell you the beginning, middle and end of the story.

I really don’t see why they cast the Game of Thrones girl as the female action lead as she looks like a little kid (28?!). I won’t be surprised if it comes out that they had to put blocks on the pedals and a thick pad on the seat for her to drive that. I’m having suspension of disbelief issues with her doing all the action stuff that she’s shown doing as she’s so slight.

Emilia Clarke - 28
Linda Hamiliton - 26
Their ages they are/were when they played Sarah Connor.
Height wise, they only have 4 in’ difference between them. Look wise, that just comes down to what is considered sexy/attractive. Every decade/era has that. No different than how all 80’s action stars had to be buff streroid beefcake compared to todays. Liam Neeson is no Sylvestor Stallone, etc.

Big puffy/mullet hair was all the rage back then.

Linda Hamilton wouldn’t have been able to play a convincing 13 year old girl part, as Clarke was. I’m not sure how best to put it but Clarke has a sort of Hollywood moe aesthetic going on as I’m concerned about her hurting herself in those action scenes and I’m o_0 about that cleavage shot of her hanging from the bridge.

Doesn’t feel right to me when I’m wishing the actress in the “action babe” role would blow up less stuff and put on more clothes. That’s the opposite of what the role is supposed to do.

I'm thinking that they need to do something with the Indy franchise before it becomes a Red-esque parody of itself as Harrison Ford has not been aging well and the only guy whom they've set up as a successor is Shia "I'm not famous anymore" LeBeouf...

You do know that all the “kids” were aged up compared to their novel counterparts, by 5/6 years. I never thought for once that TV Daenerys was 13.

This new trilogy will start out as classic Terminator sci-fi but due to the constant time traveling (and quantum tripping), reality starts stretching thin and tearing, leading to the emergence of chthonic/supernatural/others. That’s what I’l like to see happen.

Nope. If that’s the case then I was unaware.

Doesn’t change anything for me as she definitely did not look 18-19 to me in Season One. Basically, when I look at her I see a female version of the actor who played John Connor in T2: a young kid trying too hard to be tough. Dunno what to say, save that her casting seems like a fail to me.
