Terminator: Genesis Is Confirmed

Terminator: Genesis has been confirmed!

The new Terminator film will be called ‘Terminator: Genesis’. We have been waiting a long time to see if they were ever going to come out with another Terminator film, and finally the news has arrived.

So what will this Terminator film be about? Since genesis in itself means from the beginning or first, will this just be a remake of the original?

Happy to say that at this time they are not remaking the original. Whew, I thought we were going to have to go ape shit and completely walk away from this film right now. But since that is not the case, we are told that it will be a sort of ‘reboot’ (think what J.J. Abrams did for the 2009 Star Trek).

Okay, so we are listening now. We also learned that it can also be compared to Back to the Future Part II. Put this all together and it seems that we will have our characters going back in time to revisit the most memorable moments. But how far will they go? The first two Terminator films are said to be where they will return, we only wonder what more we will learn from this film.

Seems a little confusing right? I mean the first film was fantastic, so why would they want to do a ‘reboot’ with characters going back to what we have already seen? I don’t know about you but until I get to see some proof of what we will be seeing I remain skeptical. I can just see it now, are we going to see Arnold see himself when he is naked? You know where we are going with this, just seems a bit odd if you ask me.

Arnold addressed his supporters about Terminator: Genesis, and this is what he had to say:

We start filming in April and it will be a four-and-a-half month long shoot. Most of it will be done in New Orleans, with some filming in San Francisco and maybe a little in LA. The last Terminator was when I was Governor and so I couldn’t be in that movie, but now I’m back again and they are very excited about having me in the film.

[Producer] David Ellison has plenty of money to do it well, in partnership with Paramount Pictures who are going to release the movie through their distribution. It’s going to come out on the July 4th weekend in 2015. The preparation is going well and the script is fantastic, so I’m really looking forward to it!

Terminator: Genesis will star Emilia Clarke (Sarah Connor), Arnold Schwarzenegger (Terminator), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese), and Jason Clarke (John Connor). Be on the lookout for this film to hit theaters July 4th, 2015.

So what are your thoughts on this film? Will it crash and burn or be a classic hit? We are still mixed on the whole idea, but only time will tell as more information is unfolded.
