That changes with Wonders of the Sea 3D, a doc about ocean conservation that’s co-directed by the son of famed explorer Jacques Cousteau.
See what Arnold Schwarzenegger narrating a doc looks like in the promo reel below. (Spoiler alert: it’s pretty fantastic.) Read More »

Now that he’s gone, some of the franchise’s key players don’t have much of interest in returning, like Arnold Schwarzenegger. Read More »
A sequel to Terminator: Genisys is dead. But James Cameron and Deadpool director Tim Miller are supposedly teaming up for a Terminator 6, so the franchise itself hasn’t been terminated yet. Genisys star Emilia Clarke won’t be coming back for more, and even Jai Courtney says it’s time to hang it up, but now original series star Arnold Schwarzenegger says he’s not finished making Terminator movies.

Of course, we’ve already caught wind of another reboot, but the news that the sequel to Genisys is finally has arrived.
Let’s look at what we know about the canceled Terminator sequel and what’s going on with the next reboot.
