Well this doesn’t look promising. The high performance video and audio publication Home Cinema Choice received an advanced review copy of the 4K remastered home video release of “Terminator 2 Judgment Day” and the reviewer found the picture quality to be problematic, to say the least. After the unrelenting delays of both the single disc and endo arm releases, how much disappointment can fans take with this release?
If you are a Terminator fan you have likely heard the name Andrew Vajna before. Vajna was one of two film investors along with Mario Kassar who founded the company Carolco Pictures. Carolco was the film company that ultimately acquired the rights to the Terminator franchise from the Hemdale Film Corporation back in 1990 (after Vajna left), and went on to make the blockbuster film “Terminator 2: Judgment Day“. Later that decade Carolco went bankrupt, but out of the ashes Andy Vajna and Mario Kassar obtained the Terminator rights again and formed a new company called C2 Pictures in 2002. They produced the sequel “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” a year later. Vajna was also credited as an executive producer for both “Terminator Salvation” and the short-lived television series “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” Throughout his life, Vajna has had his influential hands all over Terminator… and now he’s back!
In the 2009 film “Terminator Salvation”, audiences were introduced to a post-apocalyptic world where automated motorcycles called Moto-Terminators ruled the highways. Created and manufactured by Skynet sometime before 2018, their main function was to hunt and destroy human survivors that were still using the roads once created by civilized society. It was an interesting addition to the Terminator science fiction universe, that suddenly doesn’t feel very fictional anymore, due to Yamaha’s new project: The Motobot.
Back on Saturday, October 14th, Skydance posted an image of James Cameron on their social media pages along with the following comment: “Something big is coming. #Terminator”. Now to many Terminator fans, it appeared Skydance was teasing us with a big upcoming announcement in relation to the production of “Terminator 6”. However, we fans may have been a bit overzealous.
In this fifth episode of the Official Podcast of Skynet’s Army: Terminator Fans United, Skynet actually calls into the show and tries to entertain the listeners, we discuss the good and the bad we found with Terminator 6’s official release date, and we celebrate the 33rd Anniversary of “The Terminator”!
Well, the hits just keep on coming. Last week we reported that the 3D/4K Blu-ray release of the remastered “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, originally slated for the first week of October, was postponed until December (reported HERE). Well now we have received word that the T2 Endo Arm Special Edition release won’t be coming out now until March of 2018. That’s right, a whole six months later than its initial announced release date.
The sixth film in the Terminator franchise has landed a filming home in Budapest, Hungary! That’s right, Terminator 6 will be doing most of it’s filming in Origo Film Group Studios, the same facility used to film 2017’s “Blade Runner 2049” and “Atomic Blonde“! In fact, they have already begun the construction of sets for T6!
Hot on the heels of the T2 Endo Arm Special Edition Blu-Ray set being postponed indefinitely (reported HERE), the single disc release of the “Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D/4K” has been delayed yet again! This time, the release date has been benched until December!
In this fourth episode of the Official Podcast of Skynet’s Army: Terminator Fans United, we look into the possibility of Robert Patrick joining the cast of “Terminator 6” and fans talk about their favorite moments from the classic film “The Terminator”!
Actor Arnold Schwarzenegger has been fielding a lot of questions about his upcoming Terminator film during a promotional tour for his his new movie “Killing Gunther”. And this time, when speaking with Business Insider, Arnold revealed hints not only about his T-800 Model 101’s backstory in Terminator 6, but implied no other characters are returning other than possibly the T-800 and Sarah Connor. Plus T6 will exist in a brand new timeline! So does this really mean there is no John Connor in “Terminator 6”?
We here at Skynet’s Army clearly understand that when the sixth film of the Terminator franchise is released in July of 2019, the title of the film will most assuredly not be “Terminator 6”. We are already aware that the next Terminator movie will be a direct sequel to “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, but considering there is already a Terminator 3 in the non-Cameron Terminator film universe, calling it T3 would most likely create confusion among fans (and especially among moviegoers that are more casual in their fandom.) So until there is an official title, we just use “Terminator 6” as a placeholder title so everyone knows what film we are referring to. Well apparently actor Arnold Schwarzenegger agrees with this sentiment, even though others around him like James Cameron may not.
This past August, we reported that the iconic T-800 Model 101 actor Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed to the world that “Terminator 6” would begin production this March, 2018 (that article can be found HERE.) Well now Terminator fans, we not only have confirmation that Arnold was correct and filming will indeed occur in five months, but now we know the locations they will be filming T6 in too… and it’s not in Hollywood, California!
