Movie News


Despite a non-committal Schwarzenegger, in-demand director Justin Lin (best known for the last three FAST & FURIOUS flicks) is still hopeful for further TERMINATOR movies. And it looks like he’s still intent on bringing Sarah Connor back to the series. Speaking on the matter recently, the filmmaker had this to say "I mean, Sarah Connor is such a big part of the franchise, you know. Yeah, I mean I’ve always been surprised how in part 3 she was just like… It was like one line and she was gone… But I think the great thing about this franchise is… You can actually have different canons because you have the element of time travel. So, there’s a way of kind of respecting all the works but also able to create a new time line."

Yeah, a timeline that will hopefully ignore the woeful TERMINATOR: SALVATION.

Hands up who's actually excited to more TERMINATOR movies? Should Lin just leave this franchise where it is (in the toilet)? Or would the inclusion of Sarah Connor make it more interesting? Let us know in the Comments or on Twitter @Starburst_Mag

Sarah connor for me was the heart and "top gun" of the movies to begin with, and not having her there did take something very special away from it. Its not just she was a bad ass, or the lead for the first 2 T's, either way it felt like a betrayal killing her off. It was like "yay she survived the wars, assasins, but good old cancer got her." I mean that just felt like a slap in the face! If the movies did go into a new direction, it would defo be something i would consider watching. She adds something that was lost after T2.
