It looks like the title of the new Terminator film has been revealed in a recent tweet from Production Weekly. While offering up some information on the production offices they refer to the film as Terminator: Genesis. I've got to say, I don't know if I like these kinds of sub-names on films. They just keep recycling the same ones over and over. It just sounds so generic.
Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor is expected to be directing the next Terminator movie. It's not confirmed yet, but it looks like he's going to be the guy to do it, which is great! I think he's the right man for the job. I love what he did for Thor.
There's no official plot information for the movie yet, but it was recently announced that the new trilogy will tie in with a new TV series as well. It »

Details on the forthcoming new Terminator film suggested it was going for the reboot route as opposed to another sequel. While Arnold Schwarzenegger remains attached to the film, recasting roles for Sarah Connor and time-travelling protector (and impregnator) Kyle Reese may hold clues to the new direction for the Skydance and Annapurna Pictures production of the classic James Cameron-creation. Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor is set to direct the sci-fi epic, with Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson said to be the final two remaining and fighting it out for the role of unborn resistance leader’s hunted mother.
We’re now hearing Taylor’s sequel/reboot has an official title of Terminator: Genesis as well as a brand new series not connected to the cancelled Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The new show will be used as a tie-in to the upcoming film and will split »

Is Terminator: Genesis the Title of the Upcoming Reboot?
Aside from those pesky rumors that Terminator 5 will focus on a young Sarah Connor, with both Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson vying for the role in a story that will change the events seen in the original 1984 The Terminator, as the machine arrives in the past to hunt her down before she becomes pregnant, not much is known about this upcoming reboot from Annapurna Pictures and Paramount.
Today, the usually reliable Production Weekly sent out the following Tweet, which confirms that the production offices for the Alan Taylor directed reboot are up and running, and that they have what may be the official title: Terminator: Genesis.

The Hollywood Reporter just broke the news that Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are teaming up to bring a new Terminator series to a television near you. That’s not all. Unlike the ill-fated Sarah Connor Chronicles, this one will tie-in directly to the upcoming rebooted film franchise.
THR describes the show like this:
“The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984) and, where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming series will take the same moment in a completely different direction. As the rebooted film trilogy and the new TV series progress, the two narratives will intersect with each other in surprising and dramatic ways.”
The creative team behind this new series is Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller- who are no strangers to adapting James Cameron’s cyborg creations to television. The duo also worked on Sarah Connor Chronicles, and their other past credits include Thor, »

"Terminator" will be back ... on television.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the producers of the upcoming fifth film are working to return the franchise to the small screen four years after the end of Fox's "The Sarah Conner Chronicles." The new series, headed by "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, will go hand-in-hand with the movie reboot.
The television series will jump off of a critical moment in the original 1984 "Terminator" movie. Then, as the trilogy reboot and the show progress, they'll intersect "in surprising and dramatic ways."
After languishing in limbo for some time, the movie reboot of "Terminator" is finally starting to heat up, with a slated July 2015 release. As we reported earlier, "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke and "21 Jump Street" actress Brie Larson are rumored to be on the short list to play Sarah Conner. (Interestingly, Clarke's fellow "Game of Thrones »

NBC's live "The Sound of Music" starring Carrie Underwood Thursday night airs with a few glitches, including the orchestra overplaying the singers, sound errors, and a few line goofs. Columnist Lisa De Moraes also says, "as an actress, "American Idol" alum Underwood is an enormously talented singer." Stephen Moyer deserved the Medal of Freedom "for his valor during that garden love scene." Audra McDonald's version of "Climb Ev'ry Mountain" was "the emotional high point of an otherwise emotionally flat show." Deadline. Anne Thompson contends that all five Best Actress Oscar slots are locked up by Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine"), Sandra Bullock ("Gravity"), Judi Dench ("Philomena"), Meryl Streep ("August: Osage County"), and Emma Thompson ("Saving Mr. Banks"). She also says there are eight other must-see performances voters should watch: Brie Larson ("Shor »
From “The United States of Tara” to “21 Jump Street,” “Scott Pilgrim” to “Rampart,” Brie Larson seems impossible to pin down as an actress. But despite the outward schizophrenia of her choices, the actress insists that she knows immediately when she finds something she connects with, as she did to profound effect with the acclaimed independent film “Short Term 12.” “I read so many scripts, and it’s just certain things that make sense to me when they’re on the page,” Larson explained Wednesday night at TheWrap’s awards-season screening of the film. “And Grace was that for me – there was. »

We continue today's updated 2014 Oscar predictions with Best Actor and Best Actress, one of which is entirely up for grabs where the other was long thought to be in the bag, but such is never the case in the Oscar race (rhyming!). I've gone into more detail below, but in the actor race I'm sticking with Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) all while Bruce Dern (Nebraska) and Robert Redford (All is Lost) continue to bounce all around my rankings. On the Best Actress side, what was long thought to be an open and shut case for Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine) may soon become quite the race as Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks) will soon apply some pressure. I'll be updating all the major categories today as I've already posted my Best Picture and Director predictions and continue with my leading actor categories, which are detailed below along with links to browse my complete, »

One day we are actually going to see a fifth Terminator film, and fans of the franchise hope that it's going to be good! The movie is set up at Paramount Pictures, and Thor: The Dark Word director Alan Taylor is going to bring it to the big screen.
The latest casting update on the movie comes from Deadline, who says that the role of Sarah Connor comes down to two actresses... Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Brie Larson (21 Jump Street). According to the report, "both actresses have tested for the producers, and they are the front runners." The also say Clarke has the edge, which makes complete sense. I think she would be pretty badass in the role. She's already shown that she can kick some ass.
The report goes on to say that the characters Kyle Reese and John Connor will also play a part in the story, »

Paramount Pictures and director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) are in the middle of casting actors for the upcoming "Terminator" reboot and are in talks with Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) to play the role of Sarah Connor. Both actresses have tested for the production and are the current frontrunners. Deadline says that Clarke may end up getting the role, mostly because Taylor directed her on HBO's "Game of Thrones." Regarding the plot of the reboot... Kyle Reese, the character played by Michael Biehn in the original film, will appear in the new movie as well. So it seems that time-traveling will be part of the story. Arnold Schwarzenegger is already on board to reprise his role. »
A couple of months ago we brought you news that the role of Sarah Connor in the forthcoming Terminator reboot was likely to go to one of three actresses, Brie Larson, Emilia Clarke or Margot Robie. Well, according to Deadline that list is now down to two, with Clarke and Larson thought to be the clear frontrunners for the part. Clarke is thought to currently hold the edge in the casting race, particularly given her previous work with Game Of Thrones alumnus Alan Taylor. That said, Larson is currently basking in critical acclaim...
