There can be no doubt that the Terminator franchise is one of the most disappointing despite its well-known standing and beloved earlier instalments. Terminator 3 was a definite step down from its predecessors and Terminator Salvation isn’t even worth discussing. Yet there’s still interest in the franchise continuing with the hope that it can be rebooted and taken in a new direction with the weight of the other films holding it down. Part of this new direction involves the creation of a new TV series that will, hopefully, tie in to the planned rebooted trilogy. Personally, I won’t be holding my breath.
Perhaps the best thing to come out of the Terminator franchise in the last several years was Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It was a short-lived TV series that had a warmer welcome than Salvation. Yet it never found a large audience to keep it going. »

When Terminator 5 arrives in cinemas in 2015, a new Terminator television series won't be far behind...
It's very hard to make a really good television series spin-off from a hit movie franchise. Many have tried before, many have failed. In the case of the Terminator franchise, it's spawned an excellent television spin-off that then, sadly, got canned after two seasons. We're talking about the genuinely wonderful The Sarah Connor Chronicles, whose cancellation still rankles with many. Especially considering the news we're about to pass your way.
For according to The Hollywood Reporter, a brand new Terminator television series is now in development. It's being put together in tandem with the upcoming big screen reboot, which is due in cinemas in 2015. And according to the report, the series "will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film and where the film's story goes one way, »
Amir here, bringing you this weekend’s box office report, which looks curiously like last weekend’s box office report. Of course no one is surprised that Out of the Furnace didn’t have the power to blast off Catching Fire and Frozen. The reviews aren’t over the moon; its stars aren’t quite stars, but famous actors; and this time of year, if you’re not a franchise entry or an animated film, you better be an Oscar player with huge buzz to sell tickets. Furnace is none of those things, and this weekend isn’t particularly notable for big numbers anyway. The last time any film opened in the first week of December to what can be considered reasonably successful sales is The Golden Compass all the way back in 2007. The only other noteworthy release is Inside Llewyn Davis, which opened on 4 screens to a strong per screen average. »

The Terminator franchise is heading back the big screen. Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are now looking to bring Terminator to television as well. Word is that a new series is in development and it will tie into the Alan Taylor film. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, the pair behind X-men: First Class and Thor, will provide the script for the pilot. The franchise was previously brought to television as Terminator: The Sarah Connor whi… »
Having acquired the rights to Terminator for a hefty $20 million, producers Megan Ellison and David Ellison are wasting little time in capitalising on their investment. Not only is a new movie trilogy in the works, with the first instalment set for release in 2015 under director Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), but it's now been announced that the sci-fi franchise is heading back to the small screen for a "companion piece" to the new movie series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller are set to write and produce the new series, which "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 »

The first weekend in December is a notoriously weak one at the box office, and, true to form, most movies faced harsh declines this weekend after the record-breaking Thanksgiving frame. But Disney’s animated musical Frozen managed to score a not-so-severe 53 percent fall to $31.6 million this weekend, which sent it past Catching Fire and straight into the No. 1 spot on the chart.
Frozen has earned $134.3 million after 12 days in wide release, 39 percent more than 2010′s Tangled, which had earned $96.6 million at the same point in its run. The film will match its $150 million budget by this time next week, and »

Though they were on TV in one form a few years ago with the under-seen and underrated Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, it would appear the machines are ready to launch another assault on our small screens, and we have Annapurna Pictures and Skydance (not Skynet) Productions to thank for it. The producers behind the planned new Terminator trilogy are working on a series to extend the story of the film currently in development.X-Men: First Class / Thor writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (whose TV credits include Fringe and The Sarah Connor Chronicles) will act as executive producers to launch and guide the new show, alongside current Terminator film script bods Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier.What plotlines will the show use? That info has not yet been released, for obvious spoiler reasons, but Deadline reports that it'll follow a plot moment from James Cameron’s 1984 original, yet spin »
Back in July, word began to spread that the Bad Robot team were on the hunt for new writers to tackle the third Star Trek film, or at least take some of the load off regulars Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who have become prolific producers and looked to step back a little. Then, it was Thor duo Ashley Miller Zack Stentz in talks (they have another job), but nothing ever solidified. Now, however, largely unknown scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have been hired instead.In a more surprising turn of events, Kurtzman will be stepping away entirely from this one, leaving Orci to work with the new pair on the film. Orci is the bigger Trekker of the pair, however, so perhaps he's more keen to keep close to the series. Paramount is hoping that this new film will be ready to leave cine-space dock in 2016 to »
The Friends Reunion Movie. It’s been through the rumour mill as many times as Joey’s been through the Manhattan babe pool. It’s in higher demand than a freshly baked batch of Phoebe’s trademark chocolate chip cookies. It’s become as much of a will-they-won’t-they affair as Ross and Rachel’s relationship, and that thing went on for ten whole years!
But then, so have the rumours. From pretty much the moment the show ended in May 2004, there have been calls for a reunion series or movie, and those demands have not died down with time; in fact, they’ve only gathered momentum.
Will the Friends Reunion Movie ever happen? Only time will tell. Sheer speculation is futile. But what we can debate is what would happen in the movie if ever did go ahead. Many questions would simply have to be answered, notably:
Where are they all now? »

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 »

We already know that a "Terminator" reboot trilogy is currently in the works. But now comes word that the plan is to also create a new "Terminator" TV series, to be written by "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller. The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first "Terminator" film (1984). 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. It's still not clear when the TV series will air. But the first installment in the reboot is set to hit theaters on July 1st, 2015. »

This Ain't California (Tbc)
(Marten Perseil, 2012, Ger) 90 mins
Just as its East German teen subjects took skateboarding behind the Iron Curtain, so this "documentary" smuggles faked footage into its true 1980s history. The result is a fascinating parallel pop-cultural history with a moving (but imaginary) human centre. Working out what's true and what's not only adds to the fun.
Stubborn old Dern and son take a quixotic road trip back into family, and American, history.
Disney's classy, sparkly assault on the Christmas holidays, with wintry vistas, musical numbers and a sister-powered fairytale. »

Even if you haven't seen Marvel's Phase Two sequel Thor: The Dark World, it shouldn't be considered a spoiler to say that Chris Hemsworth's Thor and Natalie Portman's Jane Foster embrace in a passionate kiss towards the end of the film.
Here's what Natalie Portman had to say about why she wasn't available for this scene.
"It was for reshoots (after the film was finished) and he was working in Hong Kong and I couldn't get there because I was working on my own film. And so they put his wife in my wig and costume, that's why it was so passionate. It was such a perfect solution, wasn't it?"
The thing is, Terminator already has a bunch of time travel going on, the very thing that is going to revitalize the X-Universe.
So, in honor of a bunch of crazy new time travel, let’s look at the current state of the Terminator Timelines. They are many and they are confusing.
[Author's Note: Tweet screencaps are read bottom to top].
I archived this conversation because you do Not f*ck with Terminator timelines.
In order to discuss how this works, we’re going to be discussing a certain version of time travel that I will now try to explain in the simplest way possible: bullet’d assumptions:
There's a new Terminator TV series going into development! Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are not only teaming to bring us the new movies, they will also be developing the TV series as well.
Producers have hired Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write and executive produce a new series, which will be in conjunction with the new feature films being released.
According to THR, 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 some surprising and dramatic ways."
This sounds like a pretty epic undertaking. Kind of like what Ron Howard wanted to do with the adaptation of »

There may be no future but what we make, but the future is about to get mighty complicated. In addition to the upcoming "Terminator" reboot trilogy -- featuring the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as one version or another of the titular cyborg -- the franchise is also planning a return to the small screen. Skydance Prods. and Annapurna Pictures have announced that they'll be launching a new TV series that will tie in directly to the 2015 film and its sequels, according to Deadline. Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller ("X-Men: First Class," "Thor") will write the series and serve as exec producers, alongside the »

A Terminator TV show is heading our way, because somehow the planned reboot of the movie just won't be enough to satiate fans. Producers for the upcoming fifth film announced today that Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller — who also worked on the previous terminator TV show, The Sarah Conner Chronicles — will write and executive produce this new series. There's no network attached yet, and details are scant except that the show will focus on a "critical moment" from the 1984 original movie. So much terminating! »

Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures, who are producing the upcoming "Terminator" reboot film trilogy, are also developing a TV series to work in conjunction with the new first film due for release in 2015.
Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller ("X-Men: First Class," "Thor") are penning and executive producing the series. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, who are writing the upcoming film, are also executive producing the series.
The series is said to "follow a critical moment from the original 1984 Terminator movie, taking it in a completely different direction that the film."
The reboot film is expected to be tied to the original 1984 film as well. As both the trilogy and series progress, the two narratives will be designed to ultimately intersect.
