"Terminator" Sequels On Indefinite Hold
After the failure of "Terminator Genisys" at the U.S. domestic box-office earlier this year, it looked like proposed plans for two more "Terminator" films and a potential TV series spin-off were put on the scrap heap.
Then came the strong international box-office figures for the film, including robust business in China, which seemed to stir talk that the sequels could well proceed.
Now though THR reports that despite the $440 million worldwide haul, "Terminator Genisys" will still lose money and their sources say: "the notion of a 'Terminator' universe is on hold indefinitely."
'Genisys' grossed a mere $89 million domestically in the United States. Sporting a $150 million production budget, not to mention marketing and distribution costs of a similar number, the news does not come as a huge surprise.
Oh dear, time to go back to Plan A! TSCC!!!!!

Paramount Pulls Terminator Genisys Sequel Off Release Schedule
The next film in the Terminator franchise has been taken off Paramount's release calendar, the studio confirmed Wednesday.
Terminator 2 had been scheduled to arrive in theaters on May 19th, 2017, but Paramount has now set Dwayne Johnson's Baywatch film on that release date.
The most recent Terminator film, Terminator: Genisys, debuted last summer and went on to make a relatively weak $89.8 million at the box office over its 11-week run (for context, 1991's Terminator 2: Judgement Day was that year's top-grossing film with a domestic total of $204.8 million). It didn't fare too well with critics, either: The movie has a 25 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.
How humiliating for the Terminator franchise a Baywatch movie (no offence) taking over the release date! Anybody know where 'James is hiding. come out, come out, wherever you are - I think your a wanted man!

"Terminator Genisys" Becomes A Mobile Game
Though it was both a critical and commercial flop, Skydance Productions is determined to make some money out of the wreckage of "Terminator Genisys" with plans announced for a tie-in all-new mobile game release next year.
Skydance and game developer Plarium ("Vikings: War of Clans," "Total Domination: Reborn") are teaming to develop a mobile game for iOS and Android. The clan-based MMO strategy game will pull from the themes, experiences and character likenesses from 'Genisys' which overcame dismal U.S. box-office thanks to a $350 million global haul.
This game is separate from "Terminator Genisys: Guardian," a third-person shooter game which Glu Mobile published last year. In the new game, we follow the struggles of the Resistance, whose soldiers are in a state of civil war over the few resources and weapons that remain. Players will have the option to lead a Resistance Commander or Skynet Command Node as the war between machine and man continues.
Skydance COO Jesse Sisgold says in a statement: "Mobile games have incredible potential to expand the universe of characters and experiences we have created for a movie and provided audiences and fans with a brand new perspective on our content. Plarium has had great success in creating state-of-the-art (massively multiplayer online) titles and we look forward to working with them to bring our Terminator franchise to mobile devices in highly engaging new ways."
The game will be free to play, with optional in-app purchases.
Well it does look as though they are trying to eke out as much money from the franchise. As much as they can before the rights revert back to Cameron.

I need your clothes, your boots, and your motorcycle. I bet it's pretty cool to play a sinister bad guy who also has a certain human side to things. Well i suppose he did try to a certain degree. and it was always gonna be awesome to see Schwarzenegger as the big hero. I have to admit Arnie was a cool customer back in his leather heydays.
Fantastic publicity stills and behind-the-scenes from the brilliant Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).

Great film indeed! In this film, Arnold made Terminators look more friendly to us and that was a great concept. I have never heard though, a woman getting in love with him, because of that role. On the other hand, Cameron/Summer made some kind of Terminators (TOK715 type most particularly), to be absolutely target of people's love !

Trailer: "Terminator 2 3D" Featuring James Cameron
Distrib Films US has enlisted the help of writer-director James Cameron to promote the upcoming 3D re-release of Cameron's iconic sci-fi feature "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" which turns 26 years old this week but remains as iconic as ever.
Cameron says an entire generation of fans has never experienced T2 on the big screen and will now finally get the opportunity, along with seeing a film in 3D for the first time thanks to Stereo D, whom he calls "the best 3D conversion house in the world".
The film will exclusively hit AMC Theaters on August 25th.
I would after say just by watching these 2 minutes it makes you realize how dreadful the last couple of movies (especially the last one, i couldn't stop laughing) were.

Cameron Planning A New "Terminator" Trilogy
Filmmaker James Cameron is reportedly looking at crafting not just one new "Terminator" film, but a whole trilogy.
The news was revealed in an interview with News.com.au discussing the franchise's relevance in an age in which technology has caught up with such ideas. Cameron, who will regain the rights to the franchise in 2019, says:
"The question is - has the franchise run its course or can it be freshened up? So I am in discussions with David Ellison, who is the current rights holder globally for the Terminator franchise and the rights to the US market revert to me under US copyright law in a year and a half so he and I are talking about what we can do. Right now we are leaning toward doing a three-film arc and reinventing it."
Cameron, who previously announced plans for a new film with Arnold Schwarzenegger's involvement in some capacity, stepped away from the franchise after the release of "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" in 1991.
It's time to let this go, he's too involved in Avatar for the next 20 years or so. Jesus I'll be drawing my pension by the time they come out, I think it would be better to continue with the brilliant Sarah Connor Chronicles, or some big budget TV series along similar lines as that show?
Zero chance of a Terminator trilogy he's living in cloud cuckoo land.
