# 136 Quite an Intriguing article, I have no doubt that I will watch the movie somewhere along the line, but I can't help thinking to myself with a bit of a chuckle that it could be for a laugh. Whether the movie is going to be entertaining for the teen kids and not for the adults I think we'll just have to wait and see. Mind you from what I've read which is numerous reviews of different opinions and thoughts from Terminator and non Terminator fans the movie seems to be going down like a lead balloon.
The upcoming "Terminator Genisys" won't be the swan song for Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 it would seem.
This week the actor told The Arnold Fans that "Yes, of course, next year" when asked if he'd be involved in a follow-up to this year's "Terminator Genisys".
As previously reported, 'Genisys' marks the start of a new trilogy of films - a trilogy that the producers hope to complete before 2019 when the rights revert back to creator James Cameron. This would fit the timetable with the second film shooting next year ahead of a Summer 2017 release.
Schwarzenegger is expected to shoot "The Legend of Conan" this fall once he wraps his 'Genisys' press commitments.
We'll I'm not to sure! they'll be a point when he'll retire the role because physical problems. And let's face it Arnie will be a 70 year old Terminator in 2017. Plus if this movie fails to launch the sequels I can't see anymore of the so called trilogy being released. And unfortunately the fans won't be back.
We've discussed this before with fans and some thought Terminator Genisys could be his last Terminator while my opinion was that he would be part of the trilogy. Arnold's ego is the size of his biceps and there's no way he would stop, even if that means seeing a 70 year old Terminator.
Here's my suggestion for the new Terminator, a younger one that is not necessarily modeled after a former bodybuilding champion. You may not be familiar with his face (unless you're a fan of Miley Cyrus) but his name will probably ring a bell.
# 139 Nice find Chris! Believe it or not I never knew Arnie had a son called Patrick. I know I've led a sheltered life. Obviously at his age he has family but its something that I have never really looked in to. (and no regarding Miley Cyrus). His name does now and not a bad suggestion if that's his trade acting.

Well, one of the consequences of my "job" at Summer-Glau.com is that I keep informed of the celebs's life. But my suggestions to hire Patrick as the new Terminator was mostly made in jest. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
Several weeks on from the release of "Terminator Genisys," Paramount is reportedly taking a wait and see approach regarding the Terminator franchise. Reviews for the new film were dire, and domestically the film has only nabbed $81 million.
Globally it has proven better, with $278 million so far and the lucrative China box-office market still to come, but even so - the numbers aren't good enough for Paramount to be rushing forward with a follow-up. A source tells THR: "We will definitely need to see the holds globally to confirm that people like the film."
As the rights revert to James Cameron in 2019, the plan was to film the next two movies back-to-back to get them done in time, but that may no longer be a viable option anymore. Don't expect a decision either way until later in the year.
The problem with Genysis is maybe not an issue with the story, it seems to be revolving around towards the characters of the movie, discussions of Courtney maybe even not being the weakest link in the film, reports of Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor as been terrible, suggestions of the movie being bland. "as I say everybody has a different opinion me myself I haven't seen the film just yet but hopefully will soon."
#Ref 149 The fact Genisys won't even reach $100 million in the U.S. says a lot about the audience interest in the Terminator franchise. Jurassic World used the same formula as Terminator (with a less complicated script though), and yet people loved it and it made 1.5 billion dollars. It doesn't bode well for the future of the Terminator franchise. I have never believed that a new TV series was feasible and now I have the feeling it's out of question.

I was working on something and it came out terribly. So I could get something uploaded I'm posting something I did for the Hypnopics site. Please ignore the very cheeeeesy dialog. Anyway I realize this doesn't match with the plot of the Sarah Connor show. I was just having fun with it
With just over $440 million in box-office revenue, $350m of which is from overseas audiences, "Terminator: Genisys" has reportedly edged out the likes of "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Ant-Man" in terms of box-office success and is currently the tenth highest worldwide grosser of the year.
Box-Office revenue means nothing, I would imagine Terminator Genisys cost way more than Ant-Man and Mad Max. After production/marketing costs, I think the other two movies would have made a better profit. However, does the profit Terminator Genisys made warrant Paramount to make two more additional sequels? I'm not so sure?
