Terminator 5 Title
Paramount Pictures has issued a press release announcing the start of principal photography on the fifth Terminator feature film, Terminator: Genesis. Of course, much like most of the information in the press release, we already knew this — we even posted a photo from the set earlier this week. The only thing of note is that Paramount does not use the Terminator: Genesis title in the press release, instead repeatedly referring to the film as the Terminator reboot. This could be a sign that while the script is called Terminator: Genesis, Paramount’s marketing team has yet to officially decide on a Terminator 5 title.

This happens all the time. Most recently The Muppets Most Wanted went into production as The Muppets… Again!, but changed the title more than halfway through production. (You might notice a song featuring the former title remains in that film.) For now, production of Terminator 5 is going under the “secret” working title “Vista”. You can read the full press release now after the jump.
