First look at Terminator: Genisys and its horrible plot

I think we all could see this coming when they named the film Terminator Genisys, but according to the plot description in the latest edition of EW this reboot of the franchise is going to be doing some really dumb meddling w...

Terminator: Genisys Will Likely Be PG-13

Slight disappointment coming from me (and other fans, I'm sure) as it's been revealed the next installment of the Terminator franchise — which, apparently, isn't a sequel or a reboot, it's just kind of there — wil...

Terminator: Genisys already has sequels because future money

The next installment in ever rebooting Terminator franchise, Genisys (I still can't believe I have to spell in like that), is on a quick track for a 2015 release even if we've seen literally nothing at this point. Despite thi...

Terminator: Genesis is actually spelled 'Genisys'

Yeah, hold on for a sec. *fumbles to find cue cards* "Terminator: Genisys? More like Terminator: Geni-spell better!" *trips and falls into a bucket of garbage*

Now that Terminator 5 is officially a reboot of the series coming in 2015 (along with everything else ever) with Arnold Schwarzenegger signed on as a T-800 again, it's time for the cast to be narrowed down as well. According ...

New Terminator film is a reboot, new trilogy starts 2015 photo
New Terminator film is a reboot, new trilogy starts 2015
by Hubert Vigilla

So much for Terminator 5. It turns out that the new Terminator movie is a franchise reboot that kicks off a new standalone trilogy. The reboot, simply called Terminator, will be out on June 26, 2015. The screenplay will be written by Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry). Arnold Schwarzenegger will be in the film as a Terminator.

There are no plot details as of yet, nor are there release dates for the other two films in this standalone Terminator trilogy. Since James Cameron gets the Terminator rights back in 2019, one can assume the next two films will come pretty soon after the 2015 reboot. I'm just going to assume that this reboot is some kind of alternate timeline thing, and old Spock will help the Terminator understand what's going on.

How do you feel about Terminator as a reboot and this standalone trilogy idea?

Arnold Schwarzenegger signed for Terminator 5, maybe 6

Megan Ellison secured the rights for the Terminator franchise from PacificCorp, and now has Arnold Schwarzenegger confirmed to appear in Terminator 5 and possibly Terminator 6. Arnold had agreed to return to the Terminator franchise back in 2011, though the rights and creative team issues apparently put his involvement in question. The rights to the Terminator franchise revert back to James Cameron in 2019.

Megan and her brother David Ellison will partner for these two films. JoBlo notes that both the Ellisons have an impressive list of movies under their belts. Megan's Annapurna Pictures is responsible for The Master, Zero Dark Thirty, and Silver Linings Playbook. David's Skydance Productions has Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, Jack Reacher, and Star Trek Into Darkness (aka The Star Trek Rises).

There is no script for either of the two Terminator sequels as of now. There's no director at the moment either. At one time Justin Lin was attached to direct, but then he backed out.

Vic Armstrong stunt and action highlights photo
Vic Armstrong stunt and action highlights
by Hubert Vigilla

Tomorrow we'll run our interview with the legendary stunt performer and action director Vic Armstrong, in which wel talk about his career and the updated edition of The True Adventures of the World's Greatest Stuntman (Titan Books), the memoir he wrote with Robert Sellers. It's a great read, and really feels like his voice comes through the page. It's as if you're listening to him tell stories over a couple pints at the pub.

We've already run a few bits from the interview this week, including a discussion of the action he shot for The Amazing Spider-Man and a tease of a movie Vic is interested in directing. Today seems like a good chance to look at some of highlights from Vic's career as a stuntman, action director, and unit director. I couldn't possibly include everything from his 40+ years in the business, but after the cut, there's a lot of Bond, Indiana Jones, and Superman to be appreciated.
