Apparently Terminator fans were not the only ones disappointed when Skydance announced the new Genisys trilogy would be delayed. While plugging his latest movie “Suicide Squad”, Jai Courtney spoke to CinemaBlend regarding his disappointment that the planned “Terminator Genisys” Trilogy was put on temporary hold (as Skydance Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg put it) “to do a worldwide study and really talk to audiences about what they loved, and what maybe didn’t work for them, so that the next (step) we take with the franchise is the right one.”
Ever since Skydance Media Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg announced in regards to the future of the Terminator franchise “Do we intend to have a next step of Terminator? Yes, we do“, fans have been anxiously waiting to hear what can we expect from a sixth film. Will the next film be a direct sequel to Terminator Genisys? If not, will it (at the least) carry over the threads of the alternate timeline that the writers of Genisys so cleverly established? While no one except for Skydance knows for sure, we decided to gather some plot tidbits of what was originally planned… and may still get in some shape or form in TERMINATOR 6.
This is an open letter to Chief Executive Officer David Ellison and Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg of Skydance Productions:
Dear Ms. Goldberg & Mr. Ellison,
We are writing to you on behalf of the thousands of Terminator fans who support and subscribe to SKYNETSARMY.com. We hope you will take the time to consider our following request.
Among fans of the Terminator films, there has been an outspoken minority that have beaten the same drum for a dozen years now on how to restore the Terminator franchise back to its glory days (when the visionary James Cameron wrote and directed the films.) Their mantra is deliberate and consistent, focusing on two key points that (to them) are necessary to have a great Terminator film: It must have an adult “R” (UK-18) rating and it should have little-to-no comedy. That same drum is being beaten again as Skydance Productions informed the public that they are “readjusting” the way they approach the next Terminator film and deciding if (and how) they will proceed with the “Genisys” Trilogy. Now more than ever, it’s time to dispel these two age-old arguments.
Coming off the heels of numerous news reports that the Terminator: Genisys trilogy was placed on “hold indefinitely” due to its struggling domestic box office earnings and less than enthusiastic critical response, Skydance Media Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg weighed in today on the future of the Terminator franchise. Here is what she had to say about their plans being on hold: Continue reading The TERMINATOR Franchise is reportedly not on hold, but in a state of “readjustment”.

Sign this petition and agree with the Terminator creator James Cameron that “Terminator: Genisys” was the first sequel worthy to the original classic films T1 and T2, and the rest of the new Trilogy needs to be filmed!
Several weeks ago we pondered what did the future hold for the Terminator Franchise considering the lukewarm response it received from both at the box office and from critics and audiences alike. One of our possible timelines we suggested was “the studio heads might acknowledge that they dodged a bullet, be content they didn’t lose any money and shelve all future Terminator projects (including the planned Terminator television series)”. Well according to a source at the The Hollywood Reporter, that final speculation may have come true.
Except for a few lingering showtimes left in China at press time, the fifth installment of the Terminator franchise “Terminator: Genisys” finished its theatrical run and will top out at an estimated $441 Million Worldwide Box Office gross. Comparing it against the earnings of the four other Terminator films that preceded it, “Terminator: Genisys” sits proudly as the second highest grossing film in the franchise.
