Terminator 5 is a sequel to Terminator: Salvation, which starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington as rebel fighters battling the machines in the future. Originally the new Terminator Movie was coming in 2012, but it is now a 2014 movie release. The film is a go, now that all the garbage has been cleared out of the way with the movie rights and the contract between Annapurna Productions and Pacificorp is infally signed and sealed. This means a new T5 can movie forward, everyone is happy… for now.
T5 – Terminator 5
New reports indicate the film may be helmed by Justin Lin, with a script by Chris Morgan. It is rumoured that Lin is out of the movie with the recent changes, which could be a good thing. Arnold could be back in. According to insiders, Megan Ellison, the producer behind Annapurna Pictures, does have Arnold Schwarzenegger committed to appear in the film if and when shooting begins.
Various reports have come in regarding T5. It could be set in the present, with John Connor coming back in time to fight the machines, or it could still be set in the future, as with the last film. Salvation ended with (spoiler) John Connor getting a heart transplant from the cyborg play by Worthington. Maybe his new heart will make him a super machine fighting warrior….This is a McG film, after all.
Billionaire investor Megan Ellis has confirmed
” it will be an R rated film as God and James Cameron intended.”
Salvation, while initially deemed a failure, ended up making a ton internationally, with over $300 million, so it looks like T5 is a go, maybe even a T6. McG has said that the next film will deal with time travel, although he hasn’t given away many details at this time. He did want to go back to the roots of the series, with a man coming back in time and running from a Terminator. It looks like there will be a new kind of Terminator as well, but again, plot details are scarce for the moment. It should be noted that Sam Worthington has said he’d love to come back for a sequel, which, with all the possibilities of time travel, could be possible.
There is no Terminator 5 trailer yet.
Movie Release Date
2013 at the earliest.
Who’s In Terminator 5 ?
Christian Bale in T5 is all but a go and is the most likely to return, along with Bryce Dallas Howard as his wife. Nothing confirmed yet. Also, rumor has it Arnold could be in the new Terminator movie, as he recently tweeted he has given the green light to pursue offers through his management team.
Do you want Arnold in the new Terminator movie? Is it necessary?
Other possible story elements could include the return of Sarah Connor and Arnold. Also, a Terminator that can merge with other terminators to become a bigger, badder terminator. Like Voltron!
3D? Will Terminator 5 (2012) be in 3D? The new Terminator movie has James Cameron behind it as the writer which almost guarantees it will be in 3D. Rumor has it Cameron is relaunching the Terminator franchise with new character development and Avatar technology, so they can reboot the franchise.
What’s Good About It?
I like robots. I’m not giving McG anymore than that.
What’s Bad About It?
McG. McG. McG. McG. He’s the putz who made the Charlies Angels Movies and Terminator
Salvation. He’s just a Hollywood hack who seems mostly capable of screwing up movies. Like Brett Ratner, only slightly more successful. His presence in a film is similar to the robot apocalypse that’s
coming. Everything he touches turns to sh**
Our Clever Prediction
If the last crapfest made enough to warrant a sequel, I don’t see why this won’t also. God help us all.
