Watch: 'Terminator Genisys' Parody Trailer Explores The Many Paradoxes Of The Franchise

5 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

He always said he’d be back, and the one thing the Terminator’s not is a liar. On July 1, 2015, Arnold Schwarzenegger returns in “Terminator Genisys” (um… no, that’s not a typo on our end). This latest installment in the James Cameron-launched franchise places us in 2029, where John Connor (played by Jason Clarke) is leading the resistance against the machines that have taken over the planet. When John learns of a new SkyNet plan to attack him in both the past and the future, he concocts a plot of his own to use terminators in both the past and the future to defeat the… You know what? We could try to explain how it all works, but this glorious parody trailer (via Live for Films) does it so much better while diving into the oddities and paradoxes of the series. And in case you have any doubts while/after watching, »

See Robert Patrick become Terminator 2's T-1000 again on Conan

15 December 2014 4:24 PM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Robert Patrick has once again proven why Terminator 2: Judgment Day's T-1000 is one of the most frightening movie characters of all-time.

The actor reflected on his audition for the 1991 James Cameron movie on Conan, and regaled the audience with the tale of how his intense expression first frightened the director.

It seemed only natural for Conan O'Brien to ask Patrick to re-create the fateful expression that won him the role of the T-1000.

"It's been 25 years," Patrick initially complained, before adding: "That's a lot to ask for! Well, I guess I can do it for you."

After directing the cameraman to film his face "nice and tight", Patrick let loose with his most intimidating T-1000 glare.

"You've still got it," fellow guest Rebecca Romijn declared.

Terminator Genisys: 10 Iconic Moments It Must Revisit

15 December 2014 5:03 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Paramount Pictures

Jurassic World, Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Terminator Genisys have a few things in common: they’re all additional entries in hugely successful and established franchises; all three are scheduled for release in 2015; and they all recently debuted trailers that were met with varying degrees of enthusiasm.

The Force Awakens was the undisputed king of the teaser wars, prompting a global media blitz of coverage and an overwhelmingly positive reception. Nostalgic glimpses of Stormtroopers, Tie fighters and the Millennium Falcon fought for screen space with new weaponry, unfamiliar droids and fresh faces, suggesting that J.J. Abrams may have found the right balance between homage and innovation.

The Jurassic World trailer was also generally well received, although some concerns have been raised over hokey dialogue, unfinished CGI and the hybrid dinosaur story choice that could sink or save Colin Trevorrow’s dinosaur adventure. Nevertheless, the prospect of »

The strange history of the Die Hard movies

9 December 2014 5:13 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The Die Hard series may be alive and well, but there's a unique story behind the writing of each one…

As any action fanatic will tell you, Die Hard is among the best films of its type ever made. Tautly directed by John McTiernan, deceptively well shot by cinematographer Jan de Bont, and full of charismatic turns from Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman and Bonnie Bedelia, it’s seldom been bettered, even by its sequels.

The key to the first film's success, and the sequels in their best moments, is hero John McClane. Tough, sarcastic but ultimately human and relatable, he cuts a very different figure from the beefed-up, larger-than-life heroes of 1980s and 90s action cinema. When John McClane gets shot or injured, he actually feels pain. It's something we were keenly aware of in the 1988 original, but gradually ebbed away as the Die Hard franchise drifted from thriller territory »

The Rise and Spectacular Fall of the Terminator Franchise

9 December 2014 4:13 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen looks back at the Terminator franchise…

30 years ago, the brilliant mind and visionary genius of James Cameron gave birth to a cinema icon – Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, the T-800, The Terminator. It was a movie that blended science fiction, action and horror and helped launched the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Terminator was tense, it was thrilling and, above all, it was perfectly executed.

Set in 1984, The Terminator sees bright-eyed and bushy-haired Sarah Conner being targeted for termination by a machine entity called Skynet, a system from the future who have managed to wipe out human existence thanks to its army of Terminator cyborgs. However, there is a human resistance that is rising up – and it looks like they are about to win thanks in part to the leadership of Sarah’s son John. Skynet’s plan is simple: send a Terminator back to a time before John Conner »

Sequels abandoned after the film before them struggled

7 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From Green Lantern 2 and Terminator: Salvation 2, to a Cat In The Hat sequel and Batman Triumphant: sequels killed by the earlier film...

Earlier this year, it was revealed that a sequel was in the early stages for the new Pierce Brosnan action thriller, The November Man. Remember it? Probably not: The November Man would go on to flop in the Us, grossing just $25m in the Us, and when it finally made it to British cinemas, it was released on just one screen (presumably to fill a contractual obligation somewhere along the line).

There's been no word yet on the fate of The November Man 2, but the outlook does not seem favourable. It wouldn't be the first time though that a sequel had been loudly mooted before even a first film was released, only to be quietly abandoned when something - usually related to box office takings - didn't go to plan. »

This week, we got our first taste of what Arnold Schwarzenegger's return to the Terminator territory with the Terminator Genisys trailer. The film marks his fourth time playing the T-800 (plus having his likeness used in Salvation). It'sa move that's not without controversy among fans. Some say why not let The Terminator rest in peace, while others think a gray-streaked T-800 looks pretty badass.

Terminator: Genisys Might Bring This Actor Back, See The Evidence

5 December 2014 12:56 PM, PST | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

I never understood why subsequent Terminator movies never attempted to bring Robert Patrick back into the fold. He was, without question, the second-most effective and memorable villain in the series (after Arnold Schwarzenegger.s original T-800, of course). And I assumed either Rise of the Machines or Terminator Salvation would have figured some way to use the franchise.s valuable asset. Well, they didn.t, but Alan Taylor.s Terminator: Genisys might have crossed this item off its bucket list. Watch the trailer for Terminator: Genisys one more time and pause it right around the 2:08 mark. You might see a clever cameo. The scene seems to suggest that Arnold Schwarzenegger.s Terminator is tackling a different character through a wall. Well, multiple sites (like are claiming that the guy sitting in the chair on the left-hand side of the screen is none other than original T-1000 Robert Patrick. »

4 Things You May Have Missed in the Terminator: Genisys Trailer

5 December 2014 10:58 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Yesterday the first full trailer for Terminator: Genisys was released, and there were a lot of mixed reactions. Some people were excited by what they saw, while others didn't buy into it. I enjoyed the trailer, and I'm definitely excited about seeing the movie. I know it's not going to be as good as the first two films that were made by James Cameron, but it still should be a fun ride. 

For those of you who didn't break down the trailer to find things that you may have missed the first few time you watched it, Mr Sunday Movies released a video that points out four things that you might find interesting. There were a couple included in the video that I wasn't aware of, so this might be something worth checking out.

‘Terminator Genisys’ Reasons To Be Wary

5 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Last night the first full-length trailer for Terminator Genisys arrived. Now you would think that given The Terminator is one of my all-time favourite movies that I would have been excited for the promo video to land. Sadly after having been burnt by Terminator 3 I know better than to put my faith into the newer incarnations of the franchise. Since the reboot announcement I have been outwardly against the project and was particularly vocal about to decision to cast a very muscular Jai Courtney as the latest version of Kyle Reese. Then came the decision to change the name from Terminator Genesis to Terminator Genisys, a choice clearly made by a text-speak lover.  Internally however I have been slightly hopeful that they won’t further tarnish the reputation of James Cameron’s baby. After seeing the trailer though it seems that I and many other devoted fans are in for some bitter disappointment. »

First Trailer and Poster for Terminator Genisys

Today we have the official trailer for "Terminator Genisys," starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, and Jai Courtney. Check it out below, in addition to the first poster. Plot: The story is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor's mother, Sarah (Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won't ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected. "Terminator Genisys" is directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) and is set to hit theaters on July 1st, 2015.

The Full 'Terminator: Genisys' Trailer Gets Apocalyptic

4 December 2014 4:42 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The trailer for Terminator Genisys is now online, which offers our first full glimpse at the reboot that promises to go back in time and change all the rules. Directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), Terminator Genisys journeys into some kind of alternate timeline where Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) has been raised as a child by a T-800 she calls Pops (Arnold Schwarzenegger), and while it may be a different version than what we first saw in James Cameron's Terminator, it still features the usual apocalypse-fighting suspects of Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) and John Connor (Jason Clarke). And as you can see in the below trailer, it also features a lot of dialogue and location hallmarks of the franchise, but often coming from unlikely places. Check it...
