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!
Earlier today, Skydance excitingly teased fans with Terminator 6 news. They posted an image of James Cameron on their social media pages along with the following comment: “Something big is coming. #Terminator”. Now to most Terminator fans, exactly what this T6 related big announcement Skydance will be making remains a mystery. However, one loyal member of our Terminator Army feels he may have just “cracked the code” and figured out what Skydance’s big reveal will be!
With sadness we must report that the gaming company Rule & Make has pulled the plug on their Kickstarter project T2029 an official “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” board game. While support was robust in the beginning, it seems the gaming company felt they were not going to achieve 100% funding in the allotted time to get this exciting Terminator tabletop game made.
While Terminator first began its legendary infiltration into comics during the late 1980’s when it was published by NOW Comics, many fans fondly remember when Dark Horse Comics took over in 1990 with their “Tempest” four issue limited run, followed by the single issue “One Shot” released in 1991. Both stories have since been presented in hardcover collections, which are no longer in print and fans had to resort to purchasing used copies on the secondary market… until today!
