To be fair, the R-rated cut only offers minor scene extensions. They help somewhat but they don't drastically alter the film (though I did like Michael Ironside's line about rewriting history). That said, I still enjoy TS overall, despite a one note performance by Bale (who, ironically, was the reason I got excited about watching the movie initially).

Actually...you're wrong.

Depending on how you want to take it. Meaning that you have to accept T3 as canon.... Seems like Skynet going online was always going to happen. Meaning that T1 and T2 will also play out as well. In that Skynet will develop time travel and have to send its terminators....3 of them if you accept T3. See how played out 3 times gets? Anyway...we'd see what leads to to those points. Also we'd have to see humanity win the war. Again...T3 fucked up the narrative and totally kills the punch of T2's narrative. At least T4 didn't muck with Cameron's films. Though it is not a strong story either.

Re: Terminator 5

A reboot with Arnie on board? Hmmm. Sounds like a bad idea, but let's see what they come up with.

Salvation felt like a tacked on attempt to try and reinvigorate the franchise and it didn't work. Now we're getting a reboot. Hollywood doesn't always know what's right but I don't see many other people upset that we're not getting a sequel to TS.

Re: Terminator 5

Let's look at the primary messages of the Terminator films:

T1: You can't change the future.
T2: Yes you can.
T3: No you can't.
T4: Anton Yelchin totally looks like Michael Biehn.

What will be the primary message of Terminator 5: The Search for Sarah's Gold?

The first three films are Terminator films in the sense of what everyone was used to I agree. However I don't see what the problem with Terminator Salvation attempting to go in a different direction was especially as it did what fans had said they wanted for a long time and showed the war of man vs. machine. The big problem that I've mentioned in this thread before is as it stands that story feels incomplete and as a stand alone film it feels different than the other films in the series.

I'm interested in this new trilogy sort of if they have something actually planned out and aren't just signing a three picture deal for the hell of it but have no direction. It would be awesome if Cameron some how got involved again.

I mentioned it before, but according to some copyright law the rights to Terminator go back to Cameron in 2019. He's currently working on the next couple of Avatar movies, so it's doubtful he will have any involvement.

I believe the Ellison's need to produce this new series of films before the rights revert back to Cameron.

Re: Terminator 5

This caught my eye from that article:

there have been some rumors that Marvel and he have had some creative differences on the THOR sequel and specifically the length (reportedly Taylor wants the film to be 150 minutes and Marvel wants it at 120 minutes).

He really wants it epic in scope.

There's an article out there where he specifically addresses those rumors. Should be in the the Thor 2 thread.

Many of the current big names in cinema-J.J. Abrams, Edgar Wright, Joss Whedon, etc. have been plucked from the world of TV, especially for big franchise stuff. It kind make sense, shoot quickly and dirty, bombard the audience with twisting plot information and sitcom one-liners to make up for the fact that the film isn't that visually interesting, sell lots of action figures, and keep cinema's pace up.

Re: Terminator 5

I guess there's some interest in rebooting the franchise in a "Batman Begins" way. Which I think is kind of dumb because James Cameron did great with the first two. The one with that girl Terminator was pretty lame though and Sam Worthington can't act his way out of a paper bag. Then there's the Sarah Connor Chronicles, WBs leave it alone for a while.


Alan Taylor, the director of Thor: The Dark World, won’t confirm or deny if he’s directing the 2015 Terminator film. “I’m under the personal policy to say it’s a rumor,” he told me at the junket for his new Marvel film. Taylor did, however, admit talks have been progressing and if he was to direct the film – hypothetically, of course – fans should regard it like Batman Begins in relation to the Joel Schumacher Batman movies. That is: a respectful remake taking a franchise in a new direction after multiple missteps. Read his quotes and more below.

While Taylor was very assertive in saying his attachment to a new Terminator film was still a rumor, he did talk about the information leaking online:

Funny thing was it came out really early, a reminder of what the blogosphere can do. I had one conversation, didn’t tell anyone and then all of a sudden, BOOM, it was online the next day. So my agent said, ‘You probably should know [this is gonna come up].’ It’s progressed a lot since then, but I’m still officially going to call it a rumor.

I then asked, hypothetically, how he would handle a franchise that had such a strong start (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day) but has since left such a bad taste in fan’s mouths (Terminator: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation). He said the following.

Re: Terminator 5

Hello Schmoeville…Ellis here. Yep, the lovable gent on your right in the vids. Every so often I descend from the SK ivory tower to write a story of particular interest to me. And, hopefully, to you the reader.

Long ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger films actually used to make money at the box office…and it appears one of his flagship franchises may also be hoping to go back in time. Plenty of plot and casting rumors have surrounded “Terminator 5″, and now we have some exclusive updates to that list.

According to our top-secret source The Phantom (no, not Billy Zane in purple tights), actresses Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), Brie Larson (“21 Jump Street”) and Margot Robbie (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) are being looked at for the role of Sarah Connor. Her time-hopping son John is also being cast, with Boyd Holbrook (“The Host”) and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy, On the Road) being considered.

The age of those thespians is of particular interest; if they’re casting a 20-something John and Sarah Connor then that may mean the plot of “T5″ will involve multiple time-traveling escapades. Various outlets have already reported that the film could take place in the 1950′s…maybe adult John will scoop up his 1980′s mom on his way further back? And just maybe he escorts her to the Enchantment Under the Sea dance??

This casting news enters a mill already crowded with “Terminator 5″ ruminations: Will Arnold be back to fight The Rock? Will “Thor: The Dark World” director Alan Taylor be involved?

Sometimes, though Hollywood would never, ever admit it, less is more.
