Paramount Pushes Alan Taylor's 'Terminator' Reboot to July 2015

September 16, 2013


Back in June, Paramount Pictures announced that their partnership with Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures for a new Terminator film would actually act as a franchise reboot and the first in a new trilogy. At the time the film was slated for release on June 26th, 2015, but now the studio has just announced that they have pushed back the release slightly to take the holiday weekend route with a date of July 1st, 2015. That was supposed to be the day Independence Day 2 hit theaters, but maybe the studio already knows what Roland Emmerich indicated recently about the film not arriving until 2016. Read on!

Otherwise, the only other film slated for release that day is an unknown animated project from Illumination Entertainment, so it's a good release for the sci-fi franchise. Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) was just recently revealed as director, taking the job after names like Ang Lee (Life of Pi), Rian Johnson (Looper) and Denis Villenueve (Prisoners) didn't work out. The script comes from Avatar and Shutter Island writer Laeta Kalogridis and Drive Angry writer and director Patrick Lussier, and we're very keen on seeing just what kind of story this new trilogy aims to tell.

Liked the last one. Should have followed up on that instead. I won't be looking forward to it, but they will get their money from others for sure.

I liked the last one a lot too. Are we the only two?

I didnt mind it, but it could have been better.

I was not a fan of McDirector's style. Everything else seemed pretty good.

It wasn't too stylized was it? Some great long takes, and though a lot of visual effects (sometimes by necessity, sometimes not) but great sets and locations. Got good realism out of his actors for the most part.

Yeah... not sure. Can't really put my finger on it. Some overacting, but mostly enjoyed it. Will have to re-watch & re-examine.

I know I couldn't stand it.

I haven't heard about this at all, let alone it being pushed back. Cool.

why is there need to reboot terminator? the movies are good and it is a movie classic. i simply do not see the need to remake an already classic movie. period. hollywood needs to stop this crap of remaking movies and making prequels ans sequels. COME UP WITH NEW IDEAS.

Remember when Kyle told Sarah that they had "All but won" yeah that made the other movies seem pretty stupid!
