Linda Hamilton Terminator sequel

One of cinema’s iconic sci-fi heroes is making her triumphant return to the big screen. Linda Hamilton, who played Sarah Connor in the Terminator franchise, is officially signed on to reprise the role in a new Terminator movie that will be directed by Deadpool filmmaker Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron. And of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger is along for the ride, too. But is this reunion enough to convince you that a new entry in this stale franchise will be worthwhile?

james cameron wonder woman

On Thursday, director James Cameron — the man behind female icons such as Sarah Connor in the Terminator movies, Ripley in Aliens, and erm, Neytiri in Avatar — struck an illogical blow against the female-led movie of the summer: Wonder Woman.

Instead of being a watershed moment in Hollywood, Cameron accused Wonder Woman of being a “step backwards” for women compared to his beloved Ripley. It was an incredibly reductive way of viewing Wonder Woman and its cultural impact — and his comments naturally caused such an uproar that Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins stepped in to tell him exactly how he was wrong.

Not that Jenkins needs any help, but I’m also here to break down exactly why it’s not Wonder Woman that is woefully “backwards” in its views of women, but James Cameron.

Terminator 6

Okay, okay – so the killer robots in the Terminator movies aren’t technically killer robots, they’re cybernetic organisms. (“Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton,” as one helpfully explains in T2.) But those time-traveling death machines must look like Arnold Schwarzenegger for a reason, right?

That’s a topic that’s been on James Cameron‘s mind lately, and in a new interview, he explains how Terminator 6 – the movie he’s producing that has Deadpool’s Tim Miller supposedly lined up to direct – will explain exactly why the T-800 models look like a muscle-bound Austrian man. Read his explanation below.

new terminator trilogy

Like an unkillable robot, the Terminator franchise may rise from the ashes again.

Because James Cameron, who created the sci-fi series and directed the original two movies, believes in no fate but the one you make. Now, he’s talking with the studio that nearly soured the legacy of the classic sci-fi franchise with the critically panned Terminator Genysis to shepherd the next chapter of the series.

Terminator 2 4K Box Set

Terminator 2: Judgment Day has been available on various home video formats for over 25 years now, but this fall it will be available for the first time in the high quality format of 4K Ultra HD, and there’s even a limited edition box set that comes with quite the cool piece of memorabilia.

While you’ll be able to pick up your average 4K Ultra HD combo pack copy of Terminator 2 (which also comes with a Blu-ray and Digital HD copy), there will be a box set that comes with a life-size prop replica of the T-800 EndoArm, and it even comes in a case that resembles the one housing the arm at Skynet in the movie.

Get details on the Terminator 2 4K box set below. Read More »

New Terminator Sequel

Earlier this year, we learned director James Cameron is returning to the Terminator franchise he created to produce and shepherd the new approach to the dying sci-fi property that hasn’t had a good sequel since Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Deadpool director Tim Miller will be at the helm of the movie, but otherwise we haven’t heard anything about what to expect from it, and frankly even with Cameron on board, it’s been hard to get excited for yet another Terminator sequel. However, a new update might help get fans on board.

Even though any of the sequels intended to follow Terminator Genisys have been canceled, as we learned in January this year, that only means the previously planned storyline won’t continue. Arnold Schwarzenegger said back in April that just because Paramount Pictures isn’t making the sequels they were developing doesn’t mean the franchise won’t continue. Now the actor himself has confirmed that he will be reteaming with James Cameron for whatever this new Terminator sequel will be. Find out more below. Read More »

terminator sequel

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. Man, I’m starting to feel like Sarah Connor trapped in an insane asylum over here. Come with me if you want to learn the latest about this on-again, off-again franchise.

Terminator Genisys sequel

The Terminator reboots are zero for two. This series (creatively) stalled about 14 years ago with Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, which is a mostly forgettable action movie with one fine chase scene and a refreshingly bleak ending. The next two attempts at reviving the franchise, Terminator: Salvation and Terminator: Genisys, failed to generate much excitement among fans and audiences. 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.
