Thursday brings the first trailer for Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys, a film many are hoping launches a whole new era in the Terminator franchise. Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as the iconic T-800 but all the rest of the characters – Sarah Connor, John Connor, Kyle Reese etc. – have been recast in a movie that, rumor has it, takes place in a parallel time line to the original film series.
In advance of that trailer, Paramount has releases a 15-second teaser for the trailer. Usually, these suck, but this one not only provides our first actual look at footage from the July a release, but also some incredibly tantalizing shots for any fan of the Terminator series. Check out the first Terminator Genisys footage below. Read More »
Marketing for the big 2015 movies is well underway and another massive movie is about to dip its cyborg toe into the water. Terminator Genisys opens July 1, 2015 and the first trailer will be released this Thursday. Before that footage debut, however, the “Living One Sheet” has been revealed. It shows a T-800 skull disintegrating in an almost hourglass fashion. Is this to mark the passage of time? To represent the fall of Skynet? We don’t yet know. But check out the first Terminator Genisys poster below. Read More »
The new Terminator movie just wrapped filming and star Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Twitter to thank the cast, crew, and get fans excited for July 1, 2015. Most interestingly though, the back of his chair – and the logo on the new, official, @Terminator Twitter account – called the film Terminator Genisys. Paramount Pictures has confirmed, yes, that’s the new official title. See the photo and read more below. Read More »
Today, Skydance Productions uploaded an interesting photo to the company Facebook account. It shows a slate marking roll one, take one of a film directed by Alan Taylor. On the side, it says “R.I.P Sarah,” likely in honor of the late camera assistant Sarah Jones. The slate is a good announcement that Terminator Genesis filming is under way. The movie is aimed at a July 1, 2015 release. Check out the image below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Briefly: It was a long, hard-fought battle, but the star of Jack Reacher and A Good Day To Die Hard has emerged victorious. Now he just has to fight a bunch of killer robots.
Jai Courtney has been cast as Kyle Reese in Alan Taylor‘s Terminator: Genesis, a 2015 reboot of James Cameron’s blockbuster franchise. (It’s the role made famous by Michael Biehn in Cameron’s original.) He’ll join Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays the killing machine, Jason Clarke as his son John Connor, and Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, who Reese is sent into the past to protect. If you want to know if the plot details this time around are all the same as in Cameron’s first film, address questions to Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, who wrote the script. [Variety]
Briefly: Most of the lead roles in Terminator: Genesis have been filled. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the lead cyborg, Emilia Clarke is Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke is John Connor and Alan Taylor is directing. That leaves one final piece to the puzzle, John Connor’s dad Kyle Reese, and reportedly it’s down to two actors: Boyd Holbrook, recently seen in Out of the Furnace and The Host, or Jai Courtney, star of Jack Reacher and A Good Day to Die Hard. Rumor has it Holbrook is in the driver’s seat, but it’s still a close race. We should hear final casting soon, as the film is scheduled for release July 1, 2015. [Deadline and THR]
Briefly: Emilia Clarke is reuniting with her Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor for Terminator: Genesis. Clarke will play Sarah Connor, the woman who is the mother of analog savior John Connor.
She’ll appear in the movie opposite Jason Clarke (no relation), who will play her son Jon — in other words, we know there’s definitely some time travel in this one. Deadline, reporting the news, says there’s a trip forward this time, so we may see Sarah thrust into the future where an AI network has achieved sentience and started to wipe out humanity. Original The Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger will reportedly show up as well.
Terminator: Genesis has been described as the first chapter in a new film trilogy; it is set for release in July 2015.
Briefly: The title of the Terminator reboot is, reportedly Terminator: Genesis. That’s one of those wildly uninspiring subtitles that can join words such as “retribution,” “origins,” and “retaliation” in the set of outlawed terms that offer some vague idea of the tone of a film without really saying much at all. Since this is the first film in a planned trilogy, maybe we can look forward to two more well-worn biblical subtitles.
Production Weekly reports the title, and it could be a placeholder production name.
Beyond that, we don’t have much hard and fast info on the project. Megan Ellison of Annapurna Productions and her brother David Ellison of Skydance Productions are behind the project, and Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are writing, and there will be a TV series that is connected to the new film in some way. Arnold Schwarzenegger will reportedly return, but we don’t know in exactly what capacity, and there’s no other cast. Even Alan Taylor, who is reported as the director, will only call it a rumor (due probably to unfinished contracts).
Regardless, Terminator: Genesis is set to open on July 2, 2015.
