Well, if Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions’ fifth installment in the rebooted Terminator franchise is going to bear the title Terminator: Genisys, then it’s certainly feasible that the film’s follow-ups could be called Terminator: Genisyx and Terminator: Geniseptem, right?  While the titles of the sixth and seventh films may be up for debate, their release dates have now been established.  To further confuse things, even though the fifth film comes out in 2015, the next two in the series won’t debut until 2017 and 2018.  And they’re being referred to as Terminator 2 and Terminator 3.  Oy.  Hit the jump for more details.

Spell check wasn’t happy about it, but you read that title right.  Terminator 5 is actually called Terminator Genisys.  Not Genesis anymore, but Genisys.  Why?  Hopefully there will be a logical answer to that question when we finally get some plot information, but for now, it just is what it is, so you can laugh at it right along with titles like Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, 2 Fast 2 Furious, Trans4formers and ID Forever, just to name a few.

Hit the jump to check out the wrap photo from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Instagram account that reveals the title printed on the back of his chair on set.  Terminator Genisys (sigh) is due to arrive in theaters on July 1, 2015 and also stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi and Byung Hun Lee.

Rumored Connection between TERMINATOR: GENESIS and THE TERMINATOR Revealed; DOCTOR WHO Star Matt Smith Joins Cast

Terminator: Genesis (tentative title) looks like it will have a bit of a funky timeline.  Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) is young again, Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) is still young, and John Connor (Jason Clarke) is older than the both of them.  There’s also an old T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) in the mix.  With four movies already laid out (I’m assuming the new film will ignore the TV series entirely), and Genesis functioning as a spinoff/sequel/prequel/reboot-thing instead of a straight-up remake, how will the upcoming picture tie into the overall story?

Hit the jump to learn about the possible Terminator: Genesis connection to The Terminator.  Keep in mind that this might be considered a spoiler, so read on with caution.  But before hitting the jump, Paramount has released some exciting news for Doctor Who fans with the announcement that Matt Smith has joined the cast.  Per the press release, “Smith will play a new character with a strong connection to John Connor.”  The cast also includes J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, and Byung Hun LeeTerminator: Genesis opens July 1, 2015.

Though filmmakers like Steven Spielberg and George Lucas are widely considered some of the most popular directors of all time, James Cameron has the distinct honor of directing the two highest grossing films ever made in addition to helming films in two other incredibly successful (and ongoing) franchises.  Fans had to wait over a decade for the follow-up to Cameron’s mega-hit Titanic, the performance-capture-heavy Avatar, and we’re currently in another waiting stage as we prepare for the long-promised Avatar sequels.

Cameron is deep in pre-production on Avatar 2, 3, and 4 right now with production set to get underway on all three films simultaneously later this year, but he recently took some time out of his schedule to participate in a fascinating and characteristically candid Reddit AMA in support of his upcoming Showtime docu-series Years of Living Dangerously.  In the lengthy AMA, the director discussed the status of the Avatar sequels, his initial plan for Alien 5, his thoughts on Prometheus and the Terminator reboot, the status of Battle Angel, what he thought about Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and even his South Park “appearance”.  We’ve compiled some of the more interesting highlights after the jump.

In filmmaker David Ayer’s Sabotage, elite DEA task force agent John “Breacher” Wharton (Arnold Schwarzenegger) heads a team that takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels.  But after the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they mysteriously start to be murdered, one by one, making everyone a suspect, including the team members themselves.  The film also stars Sam Worthington, Terrence Howard, Mireille Enos, Joe Manganiello, Josh Holloway, Max Martini, Olivia Williams, Harold Perrineau and Martin Donovan.

At the film’s press day, actor Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about always looking for projects that are unique and different, why he wanted to work with director David Ayer and follow his lead, how impressed he was with his fellow actors, and what he does to make sure that he’s not singled out with any special star treatment.  He also talked about returning to the Terminator franchise and how the script for Terminator: Genesis has the feel of Terminator 2, reprising the role of Conan for The Legend of Conan, and the Twins sequel, Triplets.  Check out our Arnold Schwarzenegger after the jump.

ATTACK THE BLOCK Star John Boyega Wanted for TERMINATOR: GENESIS

The Star Wars casting game has been going on for a long, long time now, but the latest bit of casting rumors offered up an exciting possibility for one of the leads: John Boyega.  The young British actor had his breakthrough role in the excellent 2011 sci-fi film Attack the Block, and he seems like an inspired choice to lead this new Star Wars universe.

However, director J.J. Abrams remains undecided on the young leads in Episode VII, and now it appears that another major franchise property has Boyega in mind as well: the reboot Terminator: Genesis.  Moreover, the role that Boyega is being eyed for in Genesis is Terminator canon, as he would be playing the son of Skynet creator Miles Dyson.  Hit the jump for more.

Arnold Schwarzenegger first played the Terminator when he was 37, and then returned to play the role again in 1991 at the age of 44.  He once again played the Terminator in 2003 for Terminator: Rise of the Machines, and at that time he was 56.  Rise of the Machines explained the older-looking Schwarzenegger by saying that he was an older model, the T-850 instead of the T-800.  Now Schwarzenegger is 66, and he’s still happy to be playing a killer robot, and never has a catchphrase been used so literally.  The series is undergoing a reboot of sorts with Terminator: Genesis, and yet he’ll still be around, so how is he going to be back this time?

Hit the jump for Schwarzenegger’s explanation even though it raises another question.  The film also stars Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, and Jai CourtneyTerminator: Genesis opens July 1, 2015.

In Sabotage, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays elite DEA task force agent John “Breacher” Wharton, whose team takes on the world’s deadliest drug cartels.  But after the team successfully executes a high-stakes raid on a cartel safe house, they mysteriously start to be murdered, one by one, making everyone a suspect, including the team members themselves.

During the film’s press day, Collider was given the opportunity to sit down with the film’s star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is truly reinvented by filmmaker David Ayer for this role, and while we will run what he had to say about Sabotage closer to the film’s March 28th release, we did want to share what he had to say about his upcoming roles, returning to the Terminator franchise, reprising his role as Conan for The Legend of Conan, and the Twins sequel, Triplets.  In regard to Terminator, he said that the script for this Terminator film has the feel of Terminator 2, that they’ll start shooting in April in New Orleans, that he doesn’t yet know if it will be PG-13 or R, but that there will be hardcore action and some great visual effects, and that the title of the film is not yet official.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

With next summer’s Terminator: Genesis, the Terminator franchise is getting a reboot except for the one piece it can’t seem to let go: Arnold Schwarzenegger.  He was even awkwardly shoehorned into Terminator: Salvation, and now he’ll be along for the new installment even though all of the other major characters—Sarah Connor, John Connor, and Kyle Reese—are being playing by new actors.  Speaking to TheArnoldFans, Schwarzenegger said, “We start filming in the middle or in the end of April and it will be a four or four-and-a-half month long shoot. We will be filming it in New Orleans with some of it in San Francisco and maybe a little of it in LA but most of it will be done in New Orleans.”

Three of 2015’s blockbusters will be setting up shop in Louisiana this summer.  Production weekly has announced that The Fantastic Four is set to begin filming in Baton Rouge on March 31st, which is a bit surprising since casting has yet to be announced.  If this March 31st date holds, then we should be hearing some casting news for the upcoming reboot very soon.  Next, Alan Taylor’s, Terminator: Genesis, will be shooting in New Orleans beginning on April 21st, and stars Emilia Clarke and Jason Clarke.  Finally, Jurassic World starts filming on June 2nd, and will star Bryce Dallas Howard, Nick Robinson, and Ty Simpkins.  Both Terminator: Genesis and Jurassic World are still in the casting process as well.

These three films are scheduled to come out within a month of each other.  Jurassic World leads off when it opens in 3D on June 12th; The Fantastic Four follows in 3D on June 19th; and Terminator: Genesis will be released on July 1st.  I assume it will also be in 3D, but we haven’t heard an official announcement.

Jason Clarke in Talks to Play John Connor in TERMINATOR: GENESIS; Director and Studio at Odds over Actress for Sarah Connor

While we’ve been reporting on who might be playing Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot, Terminator: Genesis, we might have an actor for her son…Her much older son.  According to Deadline, Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) is in talks to play John Connor, the robot-killing messiah-figure of the post-apocalyptic future.  As we previously reported, Brie Larson (Short Term 12) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) are the frontrunners for Sarah Connor, and since they’re both younger than Clarke by about two decades, there’s clearly some time travelin’ going on.  I really hope that at one point, John Connor yells at his mom, “You’re not the boss of me!” and runs to his room.

The casting process continues on the upcoming Terminator reboot, and it appears that the search for Sarah Connor has now been whittled down to two actresses.  We previously reported that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Brie Larson (21 Jump Street), and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) were among the actresses on the shortlist for the lead role of Sarah Connor, and now Deadline reports that the list has been narrowed down to Clarke and Larson.  Thor: The Dark World helmer Alan Taylor is onboard to direct, and the report notes that Clarke currently has the edge for the part.  Of course, Taylor has worked with Clarke before on Game of Thrones, having directed a number of episodes of the HBO series’ first and second season before landing the Marvel gig.

Paramount has announced a couple of release date shifts.  Firstly, the Terminator reboot will now hit theaters on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 instead of June 26th, which moves it away from Jurassic World (June 12th) and closer to Independence Day 2 (July 3rd).  Paramount is producing the reboot with Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions, and we learned last week that Thor: The Dark World and Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor is in talks to helm the Terminator pic.

Additionally, writer/director Alexander Payne’s new film Nebraska will now open in limited release a week earlier than planned, as the pic will drop on November 15th of this year instead of November 22nd.  The film stars Will Forte as a man who accompanies his aging alcoholic father (Bruce Dern) on a road trip from Montana to Nebraska to collect what he believes to be a million dollar Publisher’s Clearing House prize.

Word has it that director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World, Game of Thrones) is in negotiations to helm the Terminator reboot.  If a deal goes through, the longtime TV director could potentially have more massive features to add to his resume as the fifth installment in the Terminator franchise is expected to be the first film in a standalone trilogy.  No studio confirmation has come across as of yet and no new plot details are available on the rebooted film.  Star Arnold Schwarzenegger has said he’ll return in one fashion or another, and none-other than Dwayne Johnson has been rumored to appear as well.  Paramount, Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions has Terminator slated for a June 26, 2015 release date.
