Cross-platform franchise storytelling is the new hotness.
When the T-800 inexplicably rides again in 2015 with a rebooted Terminator film in theaters, a new television series will supplement the action, tying directly into the story of the film.
Like a T-1000 reforming even after being blasted with liquid nitrogen and blown into a million pieces, the Terminator franchise just won't quit.
With the fifth theatrical installment in this unkillable series heading to theaters in the summer of 2015, we're getting some sense of who could played the new versions of Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese, and even John Connor in the Terminator reboot.
Now that Jake Sulley and the Na'vi are living large on Pandora, who could possibly be fearsome enough to face them in Avatar 2, which kicks off a set of three sequels to the biggest movie of all time (not adjusted for inflation)?
If a new rumor is to be believed, James Cameron is reuniting with his most hulking lead actor for Avatar 2, which could very well feature Arnold Schwarzenegger as the villain.
Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions, and Annapurna Films are planning to have a fifth Terminator movie in theaters on June 26, 2015.
Up until now, the goal of kicking off a whole new trilogy (sigh) during the year of mega-sequels looked like a lofty one, since this mysterious reboot-sequel-thing didn't have a director to oversee the continuing battle between humanity and Skynet.
What we're calling Terminator 5 still doesn't have a director, but it might soon, with Alan Taylor in negotiations for the job.
So Terminator 5 is happening in the summer of 2015.
Only it's not quite Terminator 5.
Instead, it seems that the next Skynet adventure isn't a straightforward sequel, but is instead a reboot. Not only are audiences getting the Terminator reboot they never asked for on June 26, 2015, but it's also intended to be the first installment in a trilogy.
You can crush the Terminator franchise under industrial machinery or lower it into liquid steel, but like the titular figure, this series keeps doggedly crawling along.
According to Arnold Schwarzenegger, the fifth installment will being production early next year with the former California Governor playing a Terminator once again, three decades after bringing the T-800 to menacing life.
The fifth Terminator movie is slowly but surely chugging along. Contrary to recent belief, it turns out that Terminator 5 won't have to use a digital Arnold Schwarzenegger like Terminator: Salvation, since the former bodybuilder and two-term California Governor will indeed play the T-800 again.
The next installment in the unkillable Terminator franchise has recruited a new pair of writers.
When last we saw Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana as ten foot tall blue cat people on Pandora at the end of Avatar, they had successfully revolted against greedy human colonists and their futuristic conveniences. Still, the human thirst for unobtanium remains unquenchable, and our tenacious species will no doubt return to get our grubby meathooks all over that sweet space-ore in the two Avatar sequels that writer-director James Cameron is developing. Cameron himself talked about the progress of the sequels, which will be filmed back-to-back for releases tentatively set at December 2014 and December 2015.
Much like the unkillable cybernetic destruct-o-bots at the center of the series, the Terminator franchise stubbornly refuses to die. When former California Governor and muscle enthusiast Arnold Schwarzenegger announced that he would return to acting, Universal starting tossing around the idea of a fifth Terminator entry starring Schwarzenegger and directed by Justin Lin. The director of the upcoming Fast Five publicly commented on the possibility for the first time today, saying that he's spoken with Schwarzenegger and has a take on the material, but has in no way committed to the project.
