Arnold Schwarzenegger Says He’ll Be Back, Again, For More Terminator Movies

fb share tweet share

TerminatorTerminator: Genisys doesn’t even come out for more than four months, but in this business it’s never too early to talk about sequels. This is the fifth film in the time travelling murder robot franchise, and it is intended to be the first installment in a new trilogy. Genisys also brings Arnold Schwarzenegger back into the fold, and the action legend is down for even more adventures.

Paramount has already set release dates for Terminator: Genisys 2 and 3—they’ll shoot back-to-back and arrive May 19, 2017 and June 29, 2018, respectively—and Arnold says, you know, he’ll be back. Talking to The Arnold Fans, the former governor of California revealed his plans to return to the family of films he helped define. Given how his post-political career films have performed—some have been decent, but none have lit up the box office like he used to—it makes sense he’s down to revisit one of his biggest successes.

Let me warn you now, your mileage will vary with this. Enjoy.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says This Cult Classic May Get A Sequel

Running ManWhen Arnold Schwarzenegger says, “I’ll be back,” he certainly means it. His characters in movies come back, after his foray into politics he’s returned to the realm of action movies that made him famous, and he’s never been opposed to revisiting film franchises. We’ll see him next year in Terminator: Genisys, he keeps showing up in Expendables movies, there’s another Conan in the works, and it looks like we can add one more to this list, as the former Mr. Olympia is talking about making more Running Man movies. (Also, there’s been talk of a Twins sequel called Triplets, with Eddie Murphy playing the brother of Schwarzenegger and Danny Devito, so that might happen.)

The star recently spoke to Digital Spy, and the topic of sequels came up. It’s especially strange that so many of these are in the works given how long it’s been since the earlier installments. But the star compared it to Harrison Ford coming back to Star Wars after all these years. And with a movie like Dumb and Dumber To, a sequel 20 years after the fact, ruling the box office this weekend, it’s not as implausible as it once was.

First Look At Arnold Schwarzenegger In Terminator: Genisys Instills Faith Again

fb share tweet share

terminator genisysI’m pretty sure New Coke didn’t see the kind of backlash that Paramount’s upcoming quasi-reboot Terminator: Genisys has received in the past week. (Oh, okay, since it added that terrible subtitle.) Screenwriters Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have taken the core franchise story and taken it in a few completely different directions, causing some fans to claim, “I won’t be back,” in their best Arnold Schwarzenegger accent. But now we’ve got our very first look at the aging Schwarzenegger in his trademark leather jacket, holding a gun, and it’s a little easier to forget about all the madness. (Light SPOILERS ahead for those who wish to remain clueless.)

How Terminator: Genisys Explains That Really Old Looking Arnold Schwarzenegger

fb share tweet share

arnold-schwarzenegger-terminator-5As excited as we are to once again see Arnold Schwarzenegger in his natural habitat—playing a futuristic robot killing machine—we’re curious how the upcoming Terminator: Genisys (every time I read that title I still wonder how many people at the studio had to sign off on its ridiculousness) is going to deal with the fact that the T-800 now looks very much like a 67-year-old man who was once the governor of the state of California. But don’t worry, there’s and explanation, and it comes from series creator James Cameron, so you know it has to be right, right?

2014 marks the 30th anniversary of the original, 1984 Terminator, and to mark the occasion, the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood hosted a special screening of the film, complete with a Q&A with both Cameron and fellow producer Gale Anne Hurd. Deadline recorded many of these stories to share with the general public, and the subject of old ass Mr. Schwarzenegger came up.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Zombie Drama Maggie Finds Distro, Drops Out Of TIFF

fb share tweet share

maggieIs it just me, or does the phrase “Arnold Schwarzenegger zombie drama” bring about both heightened excitement and intense wariness? However, it appears Lionsgate has quite a bit of confidence in the genre-mashing Maggie, as the company has acquired the film’s North American distribution rights. And while that’s excellent news for director Henry Hobson, it was a blow to everyone expecting to watch the film’s world premiere this week.

Maggie was originally set to debut at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, which kicks off next week. TIFF is a great fest that handles both prestige pics and genre flicks with the sameopen generosity, so it was encouraging to see Maggie make the list in the first place. Unfortunately, Lionsgate has decided to pull the film back, and announced they intend to release the film in early 2015. This move doesn’t necessarily mean that the film will shy away from all festivals, as there are many more to come before “early 2015” gets here. Will Schwarzenegger go and kick snow’s ass in Sundance? As odd as that sounds, it could happen.
