Here we go again...

James Cameron announced today that Arnold and Linda Hamilton are officially onboard for his own reboot of the series, being directed by Tim Story. The two were interviewed by the Hollywood Reporter:

Can't say I'm pleased about the prospect of this one ignoring the continuity of the post-T2 sequels, as I'm one of those apparent genetic mutants who have enjoyed each and every movie in the series (and really enjoyed Emilia Clarke's turn as Sarah Connor in the underrated Genysis :D). I mean, a "real" sequel to Cameron's Aliens that ignored Alien 3 and Resurrection? Hell yeah, I would have seen that in a heartbeat. But, for all the fanboy grousing that the later Terminator sequels somehow "don't count" unless Cameron is directing, all of those later sequels, flaws and all, still delivered plenty of high-octane action fun, and even held together (somewhat) in terms of overall continuity.

Time travel always opens the door for an easy way in to press the reset button, but unless Cameron has something really, really fresh to say, the fact is this series has really exhausted itself. They've made the "Judgement Day" film, the post-apocalyptic one, and the trip back to the '80s -- with Arnold in tow. There's really nothing left there, unless it's a radically new concept or something truly different...not after 5 total movies and a TV series.

That Arnold's back -- again -- and Linda Hamilton too just doesn't bring a lot of impact now, but like you MJ, I've been entertained by all the installments in this series (especially the underrated 3 and 4), so I'll be seeing it regardless!

Release date is set for July 2019, so things will be ramping up shortly. Paramount will be releasing it in the U.S. with Fox handling overseas (just like TITANIC lol). Skydance is producing with Cameron -- the same people who made GENISYS...this time they're planning on a trilogy that I'm sure they hope actually gets made this time.
The Terminator is officially back. The sixth installment of the “Terminator” franchise hits theaters on July 26, 2019.

Paramount Pictures made the announcement on Wednesday. Linda Hamilton will be returning as Sarah Connor, with Arnold Schwarzenegger also on board to reprise the role of his iconic cyborg. The sequel will be produced by Skydance and series creator James Cameron. The upcoming film will mark the first time that Hamilton, Schwarzenegger, and Cameron will be working together on the franchise since 1991’s “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.”

Paramount Pictures is distributing, with 20th Century Fox handling the movie internationally. “Deadpool” director Tim Miller will helm the sequel.

The untitled film will be based on a story by Cameron and Miller from a script being developed by David Goyer and Josh Friedman as part of what is planned to be a trilogy.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, although Cameron has said that the film will be a direct sequel to “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.”

Funny this news made me drag out TERMINATOR 3. What an underrated, perfectly entertaining sequel. I liked the dynamic between Nick Stahl and Claire Danes -- wish there had been more of her character in 4 (and her as well, instead of Bryce Dallas Howard).

The Sony Blu-Ray I watched (finally) from overseas is a big upgrade on Warner's US release -- much higher bit-rate, better encoding (AVC vs. VC-1) and superior audio on top of it. You can find it cheap from the UK or elsewhere. The Warner release is an early format disc that's a total joke in terms of its disc size and soundtrack by modern standards.

I've enjoyed all the installements on their own merits.

I agree that unless Cameron lights the world on fire that this series has largely run its course. Definitely looks and feels like yet another way after the fact/ too late sequel right down to borderline geriatrics leads. C'mon, enough of this.
