69-year old screen veteran confirms meeting with 'Terminator' creator Cameron about a further film in the sci-fi action series.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has said that there are more Terminator movies on the way, and that contrary to reports, he will be back.
Whether Arnie is saying hasta la vista or not, there’s some ‘major’ news soon to be announced for the ‘Terminator’ franchise. David Ellison, the boss of Skydance, which took over the production of the ‘Terminator’ movies with ‘Terminator Genisys’, has revealed that far from being sidelined following Genisys’s disappointing box office performance, the franchise is set to return. “I will say we have resolved the future of the franchise and believe me its an incredibly bright future.
It’s hasta la vista for Arnold Schwarzenegger in the on-going – but currently stalled – ‘Terminator’ movie series. According to reports, the 69-year-old actor won’t be playing the cyborg assassin again, after producers at Paramount passed on having both him and Emilia Clarke back for more movies. “It is over for ‘The Terminator’ and Arnold,” a source told the New York Daily News.
‘Terminator: Genisys’ star Jai Courtney isn’t too fused about returning. During an interview with Business Insider, the 30-year-old ‘Terminator: Genisys’ star revealed whether he’d be up for another movie… but seems to think that ‘Terminator’ is best left alone. ‘Terminator: Genisys’ is the latest film in the ‘Terminator’ franchise, and saw Jai Courtney take the role of Kyle Reese – John Connor’s right-hand man in the future Resistance, who is sent back to protect Sarah Connor at all costs.
If you’re worried that the advancements in artificial intelligence are dragging us all towards a Skynet-style apocalypse, then rest assured. “But remember that for every offensive scenario you can think of, you can also think of a defensive scenario that’s just as intelligent.
While ‘Terminator Genisys’’ reviews were mediocre and its domestic box office haul was underwhelming, it actually went on to gross over $440.6 million across the world, making it the second-highest-grossing film of the franchise. Despite taking in this amount, Emilia Clarke has now confirmed that she won’t be appearing in any further ‘Terminator’ films, even though it was previously believed that ‘Genisys’ would be the start of a new trilogy that the ‘Game Of Thrones’ actress would lead. The fact that Sarah Connor survived ‘Terminator Genisys’ suggests that Emilia Clarke still had a future as the character.
‘Suicide Squad’ actor Jai Courtney has described its director, David Ayer, as “psychotic”, but insists it’s in a positive way. A lot has been speculated about the production of ‘Suicide Squad’, especially since it was recently revealed that last-minute re-shoots were under way, but it seems the movie’s stars are more than happy working under Ayer.
The sequel to reboot ‘Terminator Genisys’ has been dropped from next year’s release schedule by Paramount Pictures. Now the forthcoming 'Baywatch’ movie, starring Dwayne Johnson, will be taking its place instead on May 19, 2017. It was set to be the first movie in a new trilogy of Terminator movies, but speaking in October last year Skydance, the production company behind 'Genisys’, said that following a disappointing performance at the box office, it was ’re-adjusting’ its plans.
It may have been released in 2014, but ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ proved rather popular amongst movie pirates. Amassing almost 31 million downloads, that’s not far off the movie’s $36 million opening weekend in the US. ‘Kingsman’ follows the story of Eggsy – a young British chav who ends up being drafted into a secret life of espionage. Starring Colin Firth and Taron Egerton, ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’ saw another of Mark Millar’s comic books come to life on the big screen.
Joss Whedon made no bones about how difficult a balancing act editing 'Age Of Ultron’ was, and although the movie as a whole was a triumph, there are elements within that, when isolated, do not hold up quite as well. This isn’t so much a 'plot hole’ as a 'plot huh?’ because at no point is it adequately explained what Thor’s soggy vision is, what it achieves, how he has it and why he needed Selvig (other than maybe he just needed a lift). If the Indominus can detect thermal signatures, why does being covered in gasoline protect Chris Pratt from being eaten?
It’s no secret that ‘Terminator Genisys’ failed to ignite the box office… but has it put the final nail in the T-800’s coffin? According to The Hollywood Reporter, it looks as though the last ‘Terminator’ movie hasn’t exactly impressed the studio… despite the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger. “This summer, [David] Ellison, 32, went very public to promote the first film that he produced himself, Terminator: Genisys.
The CEOs of China’s two biggest independent film companies are starting to call out box office figures which claim that a new propaganda movie, called ‘The Hundred Regiments Offensive’, is topping the charts. Only last week, the latest in the 'Terminator’ series was hailed as smashing box office records on its release in China, now the second biggest film market in the world. While it had not performed quite as well as it might have in the US, 'Genisys’ was packing them in at Chinese cinemas, debuting to $26.7 million (£17.3 million) over 25,000 screens.
By Brett Lang for Variety Chinese audiences are breathing fresh life into the Terminator franchise. The Paramount Pictures and Skydance release scored the fourth-biggest opening day for a U.S. release in the country, picking up $27.4 million after debuting Sunday across 25,000 locations. It was a very good weekend for Paramount and Skydance, which also fielded the second-highest grossing film on the foreign charts, “Mission: Impossible — Rogue Nation.” The sequel snagged $25.2 million from 63 territories, pushing its worldwide haul to $438.6 million. More from Variety: ‘Terminator Genisys” Weapons: Arnold Schwarzenegger Got Biggest Gun In third place, “Bride Wars,” a Chinese remake of the Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway comedy, earned $23.6 million.
There are few actors with as many iconic lines as Arnie – most of which come from the Terminator franchise. Which is why we decided to see just how well the star’s ‘Genisys’ castmates knew both the series and their colleague’s dialogue – and the result was some quality impersonations. Who was the best? Well, British actress Emilia Clarke gives it a good shot, while JK Simmons isn’t bad, even if he doesn’t think much of his own attempt.
