With James Cameron currently making plans to bring the gang back together for a sixth Terminator movie, the next entry in the series has been given an official release date.
As per Paramount Pictures, the currently-untitled Terminator effort has been booked in for a July 26th, 2019 release.
What we know about the film so far is that Cameron will oversee things while Deadpool’s Tim Miller directs. Confirmed to return to the franchise are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. Now while Das Arnold has been seen as recently as 2015’s Terminator Genisys, fan favourite Hamilton hasn’t been seen in the series since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
In addition to this, we’re now hearing that this new movie will completely ignore anything post-T2, with Cameron himself stating, “This is a continuation of the story from Terminator 1 and Terminator 2. And we’re pretending the other films were a bad dream.” You and us both, Jim. You and us both.
Of course, the Terminator franchise has famously struggled to put out anything even remotely close to matching the brilliance of those first two movies. In hindsight, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines isn’t actually as bad as we all thought, with the dire Terminator: Salvation making T3 look like a veritable Citizen Kane by comparison. Then there’s Genisys, a follow-up that was nowhere near as bad as some of us were fearing, yet was still a major let down – not least for how it gave away it’s big reveal (John Connor’s really a Terminator, kids!) in all of its trailers!
With the rights to the Terminator franchise soon to return to Cameron, the current plan is for this next film to be the launching point for a new trilogy of pictures which will bring back plenty of familiar faces while also introducing some new blood to the franchise.
As ever, expect more on all things Terminator as we get it.
