Terminator Genisys July 1st, 2015

James Cameron regains the rights to his Terminator franchise in 2019 and already he's planning a massive comeback to the franchise he helped define, with the goal of finalizing the Terminator series once and for all! Deadpool director Tim Miller is reportedly in talks to direct the untitled Terminator project, and claim that the sixth installment will aim to finally bring a close to the recurring battle between Humanity and Skynet.

The most recent Terminator film, Terminator Genisys saw the return of franchise icon Arnold Schwarzenegger portraying the classic T-800 once again. Thankfully Genisys explained the concepts behind Arnold's aged look - old but not obsolete - which could set up for yet another return of the Austrian Oak in arguably one of his most iconic cinematic roles of all time. 

Of the most recent Terminator films, Genisys also fared the best at the box office, raking in over $440 million worldwide, setting it just behind James Cameron's Terminator 2.

James Cameron returning to Terminator is something fans have been anticipating for a while now. Paired with Tim Miller, who's Deadpool raked in a staggering $760 million at the box office, as well as gained critical acclaim, would make for a stellar starting point to begin this project from.

As new details concerning James Cameron and Tim Miller's Terminator film surface, we'll be sure to keep you updated. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section as well and feel free to post your theories on how Cameron and Miller might successfully be able to bring this saga to a close!

More about Terminator Genisys (movie)

In 2029, John Connor, leader of the human resistance, leads the war against the machines. At the Los Angeles offensive, John's fears of the unknown future begin to emerge when John is notified by his army unit, Tech-Com, that Skynet will attack him from two fronts, past and future, and will ultimately change warfare forever.

On the verge of winning the war against Skynet, Sgt. Kyle Reese volunteers to travel back through time to save Connors mother's life, thus ensure Connors existence. However, Kyle finds the original past changed. After landing in 1984, events begin to unfold, until Kyle is then confronted by the T-1000. The new machine surprises Kyle, but he gets a bigger surprise when he is saved by Sarah Connor, who already knows of the terminators, of his arrival, and of the war of the machines. It is soon explained that the timeline has been changed, In this timeline, a Terminator was sent back in time to kill Sarah Connor as a child and so the Resistance sent their own cyborg back in time to protect her. After the assassin killed her parents, the reprogrammed Guardian T-800 raised and trained her to face her destiny, which she adamantly tries to reject. Kyle then enquires about the T-800 that was originally sent to kill Sarah Connor, which he is then told has already been dealt with by the Guardian Terminator.

Now, faced with a new mission, Kyle, Sarah and the Guardian Terminator, have to escape the T-1000. Using A TDE built by the Guardian Terminator Kyle and Sarah travel to the year 2017, where Kyle is reunited with John Connor himself, who has been converted into a nanotechnological human-cyborg hybrid, the T-3000, sent by Skynet to kill them and ensure Judgment Day. With John Connor compromised, they must find a way to prevent Judgment Day from happening.

Directed by Alan Taylor, Terminator Genisys's release date is July 1st, 2015.

The final battle?  The end of the war?  Freaking, actual closure to one of my favorite franchises AT LAST?!?!

I'm giddy at the thought of the potential of this.  Ever since Terminator Salvation came out, I have hoped for a film that finally ties everything together: the final conflict that ends Skynet, the origins of the various time traveling Terminators' journeys back in time, the eventual death of John Connor in 2032 at the hands of the Terminator that would ultimately be reprogramed to save his life in the past in Terminator 3.  Salvation set up a perfect way to get us to this final battle, one that fans as far back as 1984 have been dying to see.

Genisys in 2015, while a fun movie full of some wonderful homages to the original film, just screwed up the continuity too much for my brain to handle.  It simply does NOT fit into the original four film's continuity at all.  Its practically a reboot with some of the original film's aesthetics.

I never go into movies with overt hopes/expectations about what I am going to see.  I simply let whatever happens happen, and move through the events as the filmmakers intended, only afterwords making any kind of judgment.  But for this new Terminator film, I cannot pretend not to hope that it picks up in the same continuity as the first four films, that it acknowledges their events and crafts an action packed, engaging final chapter that gives us fans the closure we deserve, and brings the official timeline, and War Against the Machines, to a satisfying and climactic close.

Bring it on, James and Tim.  Just remember... there is no fate but what you make.

I don't know... I don't have nearly as much faith in this as others just because Cameron's name is attached. I'm starting to wonder what can be done that hasn't already? The last time I was really taken with the franchise was the brilliant Sarah Connor Chronicles which came to an abrupt end. It explored things the franchise had never touched--Becoming a hard sci-fi serial that was probably too strong of a narrative for an expensive television show in the late 2000s...

Genisys was just outright stupid. Fun. Even endearing at times. But dumb. There needs to be a balance between the two for a motion picture, but also needs to do something that captures audiences again. I really have no idea what that is. The end of the war? Please. Franchises don't end, they just go on vacation.
