Jk Simmons has signed on for more Terminator sequels

3 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Jk Simmons Terminator Genisys sequels talk: J.K. Simmons has apparently signed on for more sequels following this weekend’s big opener, Terminator Genisys. Jk Simmons Terminator Genisys sequels talk: Underused: J.K. Simmons has signed on for more Terminator sequels.

Some spoilers ahead.

It is quite apparent looking at Terminator Genisys that the filmmakers are looking for more movies in the franchise. If you’ve read my Terminator Genisys review, you’ll know that I was far from impressed with the movie. The movie is an absolute mess that over-complicates, is too CG-heavy, and completely average in every way. The one thing that I will say that it has going for it is that the ending is kind of interesting in that I like that there is now an open-slate for brand new opportunities and storylines, and that we won’t be re-hashing that has come before. I could do without the who Genisys thing however, »

Editorial: Sarah Connor is the Soul of the Terminator Franchise

15 hours ago | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Originally appeared in the September 2014 issue of Deadly Magazine] There is a scene 75 minutes into 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day,  in which James Cameron pinpoints the humanity amidst all the time travel, liquid metal and state-of-the-art special effects. Young John Connor (Edward Furlong) is bonding with the T-800 machine assigned to protect him (Arnold Schwarzenegger), by teaching him how to high five. The moment is designed to underscore the father/son dynamic between John and the Terminator, as well as provide a visual symbol of the hope for mankind – that we are able to co-exist alongside technology. And, if we’re reading even more deeply, that we can still master it.

A great deal of Terminator 2’s running time is devoted to the connection between John and Schwarzenegger’s T-800. However, it’s telling that the most poignant shot – the one that says the most about their relationship – is from the perspective of John’s mother, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton »

Skydance CEO & COO David Ellison and Dana Goldberg and Director Alan Taylor Talk Terminator Genisys

18 hours ago | | See recent news »

While in Berlin for the world premiere of Terminator Genisys I landed an exclusive video interview with director Alan Taylor and Skydance CEO and COO David Ellison and Dana Goldberg (Skydance produced the movie with Paramount). During the interview they talked about how the script changed during production, Easter eggs, what they learned from friends and family screenings, setting up future movies, deleted scenes, and more. As I have said a few times, I really enjoyed Terminator Genisys. It’s easily the 3rd best in the franchise behind Terminator  and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and feels more in the James Cameron universe than any of the other sequels. I also really enjoyed seeing Schwarzenegger play his most iconic role again. Hopefully audiences turn out for this because everyone involved wants to make a trilogy of new Terminator movies, and I want to see what the next two installments have in store. »

Read The Touching Letter Arnold Schwarzenegger Wrote To A Sick Terminator Fan

20 hours ago | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger will always be associated with The Terminator, the role that helped make him famous back in 1984. But people forget that the massive movie star is also a politician, a humanitarian, and a skilled people person . traits that have helped to keep him in the public eye for decades. When you read a story like this one, though, you are reminded of what Schwarzenegger, the total package, is able to accomplish, and it.s going to warm your heart. Reddit user bizzjay (via THR) shared an incredible story of an interaction he and his father had with Arnold Schwarzenegger over the Internet. Bizzjay and his dad are huge Terminator fans, but a mental-health issue had prevented the father from attending movies recently. He agreed, however, to go see Terminator: Genisys with his son, though, knowing how important the sequel was to both men. The way the man recounts it, »

Jk Simmons Talks Terminator Genisys Sequels

21 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Spoilers for Terminator Genisys below.

Terminator Genisys is getting some of the worst reviews of the entire Terminator franchise, but critics generally agree that the presence of Oscar winner Jk Simmons is one of the troubled fivequel’s most prominent bright spots. And recently, while speaking with Slash Film, the actor revealed that he’s set to reprise his role as the series’ newly anointed stealth Mvp in any future sequels.

Asked if his character, O’Brien, survives the events of Genisys (the movie makes this somewhat uncertain), Simmons responded:

“Yes, we are told O’Brien does [survive]… in fact, we went back and did a little added shot on the roof of the whole helicopter sequence to make sure that we see that after Arnold throws me away so that he can save people, I’m one of those that he saves, and I’m still alive and watching whats happening. »

'Inside Out' Just Beat Up 'Terminator' and 'Magic Mike' at the Box Office

22 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hasta la vista, tough guys! As we approach the July 4th holiday weekend, Hollywood is keeping a close watch on the five-day domestic box office. "Magic Mike Xxl" and "Terminator Genisys" just opened, but they were both beat on Thursday by Disney/Pixar's "Inside Out" and also the dino-mite power of "Jurassic World."

According to Variety, "Inside Out" earned $7.7 million on July 2, making its North American total, to date, $216.1 million. "Jurassic World" was not too far behind with $6.9 million, adding to its whopping $527.2 million domestic total.

"Terminator Genisys" was right on the dinosaur's tail, earning $6.5 million to give it a $15.4 million domestic total so far. The "Magic Mike" sequel only had $5.7 million, giving it just over $15 million so far, but since that one only cost about $14.8 million to make, it's not that big a deal if it doesn't have a huge opening weekend. "Terminator," though. That one cost around $155 million »

'Magic Mike' terminated on social media chart

22 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Terminator Genisys tops chart ahead of release.

Magic Mike Xxl has been heating up social media ahead of its UK release this weekend.

But it could not quite match the might of Terminator Genisys, according to social data analyst Way To Blue.

The latest in the Terminator franchise generated more than 5,000 mentions across social media, news, forums and blogs from June 25 to July 1 as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emelia Clarke hit the publicity trail.

Of those comments, 20% expressed intent to view, meaning they would look to convert tweets into tickets.

Male stripper sequel Magic Mike Xxl drew nearly 4,800 mentions (20.6% ItV) ahead of its release in the UK this weekend.

Amy Winehouse documentary Amy, directed by Asif Kapadia, generated close to 1,600 comments (30% ItV).

Still generating attention after a week on release was animation Minions, which managed nearly 4,800 mentions and a strong intent to view of 38%, suggesting the Despicable Me spin-off will continue to generate strong box office.

Terminator Genisys 3D steelbook announced

22 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Zavvi has announced an exclusive Terminator Genisys 3D Limited Edition Steelbook which will include a 2D copy of the film. The final artwork for the edition is yet to be confirmed, but it is likely that the price, currently at £24.99, will not change before release.

See Also: Read our review of Terminator Genisys here

The steelbook is limited to just 4000 copies, but after distinctly average reviews from fans and critics alike, I doubt the steelbook will sell out too quickly. Zavvi have given the steelbook an initial release date of December 31st, so don’t go putting it on your lists to Santa!

In the new installment of The Terminator series, John Connor, leader of the human resistance against Skynet, sends Kyle Reese back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah Conner, from a Terminator assassin, an unexpected turn of events creates an altered timeline.

Schwarzenegger: new Terminator didn't need James Cameron's endorsement

2 July 2015 10:48 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Arnold Schwarzenegger says that James Cameron's endorsement of the new Terminator film shouldn't have been used to promote it.

One of the most striking and successful moments in the promotional campaign for the newly-released Terminator: Genisys was when the series' creator, James Cameron, endorsed the new film. He described it in a video that you can see here as "the third film".

Talking about being very good friends, Arnold Schwarzenegger has been chatting to Collider about his relationship with  Cameron.

"I think that it was a great kind of a experience in a way to have James Cameron call me and say I just saw the movie, because I had no idea he was going to go and see the movie", Schwarzenegger said.

"He said you're fantastic in it, and if I would have done this movie I would have done exactly this story, because now you're going in a different direction, »

‘Terminator’ is still the best film James Cameron has directed

2 July 2015 5:42 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »


Directed by James Cameron

Written by James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd

1984, USA

In 1984, James Cameron released his sci-fi thriller The Terminator: the story of a killer cyborg sent from the future, and programmed to kill the mother of a future rebel chief. Arnold Schwarzenegger is the automated hit man roaming around present-day Los Angeles to eliminate Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). Her only hope is the guerrilla fighter Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) who has followed the killer machine back through time in order to protect her. Terminator has long staked its claim as a classic for the ages (The Library of Congress even added it to its National Film Registry in 2008) and three decades later, Termiantor is still the best film James Cameron has directed, a resourceful low-budget thriller that recalls the canny exploitation work of George Miller and John Carpenter. While the film made a considerable profit for Orion Pictures, »

Editorial: It's Time to Say 'Hasta La Vista' to the 'Terminator' Movies

2 July 2015 4:52 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Is it time to finally say "hasta la vista" to the Terminator? With the release of Terminator: Genisys, it might very well be. This summer, like most moviegoing summers, is the summer of sequels. Earlier this year we got Jurassic World, the fourth installment in the long-running Jurassic Park series. Sure, it is stomping through box office records right now, but did that series really necessitate three sequels? The quick answer is no. Similarly, the new installment in the Terminator series, dubbed Terminator: Genisys, opens this week (and already opened in select special screenings Tuesday night). It is the fifth installment in the series – a series where each film gets progressively more terrible than the last. With Genisys opening this week, let's look at why studios – and to a lesser extent audiences – still crave more Terminator movies, even while the science fiction franchise has devolved into a disappointing series of diminishing returns. »
