Terminator: Genisys Will Spin A Love Story

fb share tweet share

TermLoveAside from the rather awful title change to Terminator: Genisys, it’s been a while since we heard anything about the fifth Terminator flick. We know the story once again involves Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney), a grown-ass John Connor (Jason Clarke), and Arnold Schwarzenegger as an aging cyborg. There are rumors that it will weave in and around the events of the earlier movies, sort of like Back to the Future II. Now actor J.K. Simmons has revealed that Genisys (ugh) will hearken back to the original film in another way: it will tell a love story.

Actor J.K. Simmons is probably best known for playing J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man movies or the brutal white supremacist Vern Schillinger in HBO’s prison drama Oz. In Genisys he’s playing an alcoholic detective who’s been tracking Sarah Connor — and the strange events that surround her — for years. Speaking to Coming Soon, Simmons initially assumed it would be the usual disposable action movie script — “yadda-yadda-yadda then cut to the stuff blowing up” — but instead he found himself impressed by the script. He told Coming Soon:

Terminator Sequels Already Slated For 2017 And 2018

Terminator-Genisys-Instagram-550x547We’re getting a new Terminator movie next year, in the form of the terribly titled Terminator: Genisys (I can’t look at that without getting annoyed). And though we’re still more than ten months away from seeing that particular film, Paramount Pictures has already announced and scheduled two additional entries into the franchise.

Genisys is slated to drop on July 1, 2015, and now the sixth and seventh movies in the Terminator family, respectively, are scheduled to open on May 19, 2017 and June 29, 2018. Right now there’s nothing more specific than that—except that the studio is calling them Terminator 3 and Terminator 3, which will likely change—but you should steel yourself now for four years full of killer robots from the future.

Terminator: Genesis Reportedly Dropping The Subtitle

fb share tweet share

terminatorWe’re huge Terminator fans here at GFR, obviously, and it’s not just a professional hazard. Alan Taylor’s next entry in the franchise is shaping up to be the most exciting one since James Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and while we have a lot of questions about where this film is going to take the series, we didn’t think we had to worry about wondering what to call it anymore. Yet we may be back to square one, as Paramount is reportedly dropping the Genesis from the title, and sticking with a plain-jane single-word approach. No time travel needed.

So, are you guys ready for Terminator? Not The Terminator. Not Terminator 5. Not A Terminator Grows in Brooklyn. I think I can live with it, even though I generally hate when sequels stick so closely to their predecessor’s titles. (Anybody else remember the band Days of the New? They named all of their albums Days of the New and differentiated them by color.)

Licensing Expo Provides New Looks At Jurassic World, Terminator, And Many More

fb share tweet share

The annual Licensing Expo is underway in Las Vegas. This is traditionally where we get our first look at the potential marketing materials, logos, and whatnot for tons of upcoming films and TV shows. As far as genres go, they run the gamut, but there is always a rather strong sci-fi showing in the house, and this year is no exception.

These images, from Coming Soon, feature things that are coming up on the schedule shortly, even a few movies and shows that we’ll actually see this summer, as well as things that are barely in the planning stages and that we won’t lay eyes on for years to come. But when has it ever been too early to get excited for an exciting science fiction project, or a new adaptation of a beloved property?

James Cameron Says He’s Loosely Attached To Terminator: Genesis

fb share tweet share

James CameronTerminator: Genesis, the fifth installment of the cyborg-centric franchise, is currently filming in and around New Orleans. Purportedly a soft reboot of the series that began 30 years ago, the film will revisit iconic characters and scenes, adding a new, more time travel heavy spin to the proceedings. James Cameron is responsible for the first two Terminator films, which are the only ones really worth a damn—we do enjoy The Sarah Connor Chronicles, however. And while Genesis brings star Arnold Schwarzenegger back into the fold, Cameron is apparently involved as well, though in a very limited capacity.

Cameron doesn’t own any of the Terminator rights anymore, having sold them to help get the first movie made, which in turn helped launch his career. Over the weekend, the filmmaker appeared at the Hero Complex Film Festival in Los Angeles, and during a Q&A session, he talked about his role in the new film. He won’t receive any credit on this installment, but he does say that he is “loosely attached” to Genesis.

Terminator: Genesis Set Pics Have Arnie In Khakis, Sarah And Kyle In Scrubs

TermTerminator: Genesis is currently filming in New Orleans, and the Daily Mail snapped some pictures of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, and Jason Clarke on set earlier this week. Sadly, Skynet’s lawyers won’t let us reproduce the pictures here, but we can discuss the hell out of them.

First off, we know Schwarzenegger is playing a T-800, but one that’s been in service long enough that it now looks like a 66-year-old version of the dude up top, Arnie as he appeared in James Cameron’s first Terminator film in 1984. Schwarzenegger told MTV that, while the machine underneath doesn’t really age, the biological tissue wrapped around the cyborg’s frame does. Hence, a silver-haired, wrinkled Terminator who can presumably still kill you very efficiently.
