'Terminator 5' Sequels Scheduled for 2017 and 2018Nick Romano |
He'll be back...again and again!
Despite that horrific subtitle for its reboot (yes, we're still not over that title), Paramount announced release dates for the next two 'Terminator' movies in the new trilogy to hit theaters in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
Khaleesi will have her hands full for the foreseeable future. In addition to 'Terminator: Genisys' recently wrapping production ahead of its July 1, 2015 theatrical premiere, the sixth 'Terminator' movie/the second of the new trilogy will hit on May 19, 2017, while the third installment will bow June 29, 2018. The cast -- which includes Arnold Schwarzenegger as the infamous Terminator, 'Game of Thrones' fan favorite Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke of 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' as John Connor, 'Die Hard 5' star Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, and former 'Doctor Who' Matt Smith in a mystery role -- will film these next installments back to back, according to THR.
No official plot details have been released for 'Terminator 5' (ugh, we mean 'Terminator: Genisys'), though Schwarzenegger previously said there will be multiple Terminators in the film, which "deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800 and then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets ahold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie, but I feel so good."
'Thor 2' director Alan Taylor is directing 'Terminator 5,' though it's unclear whether he will return for 'Terminator 6' and 'Terminator 7.' Wow! Who back in the day would have thought there would be seven 'Terminator' movies?!
