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 2015 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. Yeah, we broke the news about Annapurna getting this script like a year ago, but outlets are just reporting this now (June 2013) lol.
Alan Taylor is going to direct the New Terminator Movie, he is also the man behind Game Of Thrones. Great news.
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.
We are certain Bale won’t be back, damn certain.
There is no Terminator 5 trailer yet.
T5 is a 2015 release now.
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. Arnold will be in the new Terminator movie, as he recently tweeted he has given the green light to pursue offers through his management team.
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!
UPDATE: No Christian Bale or Bryce Dallas Howard. It’s a reboot, with Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke playing Sarah Connor and Jai Courtney playing Kyle Reece. Arnold will be back though (SEE WHAT I DID THERE?), but I’m not sure if he’ll be a Terminator again or not.
Dayo Okeniyi has joined the cast as the son of Miles Dyson, who started Skynet and invented the first Terminator.
3D? Will Terminator 5 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?
It’s time to get the Terminator franchise back on track, and even though Arnold is a senior citizen, he may just do it.
What’s Bad About It?
T4 was awful, can they bring this franchise back to respectability?
Our Clever Prediction
Arnold’s back, and the Alan Taylor has the proper vision to see a new Terminator movie being done correctly. We are excited.
