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 »

With a new Terminator movie currently in production, the filmmakers certainly looked back and what worked, and what didn’t, in the franchise. The good stuff can largely be attributed to one man, James Cameron, the original creator, co-writer and director of the first two films. Everything since then? Not so much.
However, Cameron doesn’t have any stake in the new Terminator movies because he sold the rights several decades ago in order to get the first movie made. That ended up being a blessing and curse for the director. It got the film made and kickstarted his hugely successful career, but he left lots of money on the table because he didn’t have any legal ownership.
At a recent Q&A at the Hero Complex Film Festival, Cameron talked about that balance. He also said David Ellison, who currently controls the rights and is producing the new film with Paramount, had some conversations with him about the new movies. Cameron calls himself “loosely attached” though he won’t get credit and says his biggest contribution is the focus on Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s character. There was also a point several years ago where Cameron could have bought the rights back, and didn’t.

How appropriate that the time-jumping Terminator: Genesis should get a visit from a real live Time Lord. Matt Smith has just boarded the cast of the upcoming sci-fi sequel in a “major” role.
The former Doctor Who lead joins previously cast stars Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, and, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger. More details after the jump.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has been set to play the titular T-800 in the new Terminator movie since before there was even really a new Terminator movie to talk about. But he might not be the only T-800 running around in Terminator: Genesis.
Bodybuilder and trainer Aaron Williamson has apparently been set to play a younger version of the T-800, as revealed by Williamson himself. Hit the jump to find out how he might fit in.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
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.

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 »

Not long ago there was chatter about John Boyega (Attack the Block) being eyed to join Terminator: Genesis. He would have played the son of Terminator 2 character Miles Dyson. But things have changed. Now Dayo Okeniyi, recently seen playing Thresh in The Hunger Games, will take the role. That firms up the major Terminator cast.
But there’s a second side to the story. One roadblock between Boyega and Terminator: Genesis was the possibility that he would appear in Star Wars Episode VII. He couldn’t do both. So can we take this info about Okeniyi’s casting to indicate that Boyega is locked for Star Wars, or at least getting closer? Read More »
