Overconfident Paramount Announces Terminator 6 & 7 Release Dates!

Overconfident Paramount Announces Terminator 6 & 7 Release Dates!

Shortly before filming wrapped up on director Alan Taylor's (Thor: The Dark World) semi-reboot, semi-sequel to the Terminator franchise, we reported that filming had taken place at Oracle Headquarters in San Francisco. With the location doubling up for the Cyberdyne Systems building (despite the original, unchanged location in Freemont, California being available), as seen in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and previous reports claiming that that the forthcoming movie will crossover the events of the first two instalments of the franchise a possible glimmer of the new movies plot has been glimpsed.

The new movies new (?!?) Asylum-esque title card.

Many fans, and even most of the cast and crew of the previous movies believe that the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day have changed events from that point onwards creating an uncertain future, the repurcussions of which are supposedly unknown. Furthermore, fans will remember that Kyle Reese claimed during his "interview" with Dr. Silberman in 1984 that before he volunteered to travel back in time the Resistance had won their war against the machines. It seems highly likely that the plot of the new Terminator movie, recently announced to be called Terminator: Genisys, will see the events of both the first two instalments being revisited so that Dr. Miles Bennet Dyson's work is not destroyed and as such Judgment Day occurs on August 29th 1997, theoretically correcting the timeline and allowing for the Resistances victory (as claimed by Kyle Reese).

The only problem with this possible and likely plot is, as Terminator 3 & Salvation writers John Brancato and Michael Ferris will undoubtedly confirm, Judgment Day never occurred on August 29th 1997; the future shown in Terminator 3 and Salvation is the future from which The Terminator's Kyle Reese came from, and an attempt to set the horrific event to 29-08-1997 will result in Skynet and its machine army developing before they were meant to, thus having more of a technological advantage over the resistance, leading to a likely victory for Skynet and not the resistance.

As T3 attempted to convey, 24-07-2004 always was the date of Judgment Day, even in the original untainted timeline.

Yet it would seem as though studio Paramount Pictures, director Taylor, the Ellison sibling producers; Megan and David, and Terminator Genisys writers Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier are so misplacingly overconfident that Terminator: Genisys will be a hit and so oblivious to the true nature of the timeline of the franchise that the release dates for Terminator 6 & 7 have reportedly already been set for May 12th 2017 and June 29th 2018 respectively. Coincidentially these dates fall within the fast approaching deadline of 2019, when the rights to the franchise will default back to creator James Cameron.

I'm really looking to these new films! However, I can't help but think James Cameron is, and always has been, the man for the job with regards to directing the Terminator films. :)
