When Matt Smith was first cast in Terminator: Genisys, we had no idea who he was playing. Now that the film is in theaters, of course, we have the answer — but we’re left with a whole bunch of other questions about his mysterious character.
In a new interview, screenwriters Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier explain the Terminator Genisys Matt Smith character, including where he came from, what he wants, and what in the hell he’s doing here. (Warning: Spoilers ahead for Terminator: Genisys.) Read More »

This week brings the first Terminator film since 2009, and the first Terminator film starring Arnold Schwarzenegger since 2003. Directed by Alan Taylor, Terminator: Genisys builds on the storylines from earlier Terminator movies, while simultaneously setting course for a completely new direction.
The story jumps between time periods and alternate timelines, as John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). When he arrives, however, he discovers the past is nothing like he expected. For one thing, this version of Sarah was raised by a T-800 (Schwarzenegger) who’s already informed her of her fate.

Terminator Genisys is now in theaters, which means I can now share with you an interview I conducted with JK Simmons last week while covering the Genisys premiere in Berlin. I’m posting this after the release because Simmons’ character O’Brien is a second-half reveal, and so I don’t have to dance around that fact I talked to him about the film in full-on spoiler mode. (So you may not want to watch the video until you’ve seen the film.)
In addition to talking to Simmons about his role in this film, I also chatted with the Whiplash star about possible future Terminator sequels. Does his character survive Terminator Genisys? Could he appear in the planned sequels? Is he signed on for Terminator 6 and Terminator 7? If they were to make more sequels, how would his character fit into the future plans? Find out all this and more, after the jump.

With the holiday weekend approaching, Paramount Pictures has already unleashed Terminator: Genisys in theaters. It’s a mind-numbing, time travel action adventure that doesn’t measure up to the greatness of James Cameron’s The Terminator or T2: Judgment Day, but runs circles around Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines and Terminator: Salvation.
But if you haven’t kept up with the Terminator franchise over the past few decades, you can catch up on Terminator history in 10 minutes with a new retrospective video that begins with The Terminator back in 1984 and moves up through Terminator: Salvation from 2009. It tells you everything you need to know, though it doesn’t explain the best way to deal with all the time travel that’s been happening.
Watch the history of the Terminator franchise in 10 minutes below! Read More »

It’s a given that the time-hopping plot of Terminator Genisys will involve some twists and turns. But we were surprised and disappointed to see the marketing so eagerly reveal what should’ve been a massive spoiler for the story. Turns out, director Alan Taylor was none too pleased about that choice either.
In a new interview, Taylor admits he fought against the big reveal, even if he kind of understands why the studio did it. Read the Terminator Genisys spoiler comments after the jump. Read More »
Every once in a while the IMAX release of one film will provide an opportunity to do promotion for another. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, for instance, featured a preview of footage from The Dark Knight Rises when the Tom Cruise thriller came to IMAX theaters in December 2011. Four years later, a new Mission: Impossible film is coming to theaters, and this time you can preview it in IMAX by seeing a different movie. Those who see Terminator Genisys in IMAX theaters will get a five-minute preview of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Details below. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Earlier this month, Paramount Pictures released a video which featured Terminator creator James Cameron praising the hell out of Terminator Genisys, saying that in his mind it is “the third film” in the series. Some cynical fans believe that the Cameron video isn’t authentic, believing he either makes money off the new film or was paid for his endorsement. Was the James Cameron Terminator Genisys endorsement paid for? How did the screening happen? Does James Cameron make money off the new sequel? Find out all the details, after the jump.
