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.

Now Kurtzman and Orci are breaking up their big-screen writing and producing partnership so that each can focus on directing. More important, however, is that Roberto Orci is now working hard to take the director’s chair of Star Trek 3. Read More »

There’s a tiny bit of new Turtle fight action in this TV spot, but the part of this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles footage that you’ll probably want to see is the first real look at the rat Splinter. You don’t get a great look at the guy, but there’s enough of a view to know that it couldn’t possibly be anyone else. The Turtles are still ugly, though, as as in the trailer. “New ugly,” I mean; the guys were never pretty, but at least they had an established look. Enough about that, however. Check out the spot below for the shot of Splinter. Read More »
