Director Alan Taylor recalls “rough” experience with TERMINATOR GENISYS.

When Terminator Genisys was theatrically released the summer of 2015, the movie received backlash from both critics and the public.  While some critics like Tom Long at the Detroit News said ‘Terminator Genisys’ was “the first fully worthy successor to Cameron’s original films” and Terminator fans polled at Skynet’s Army overwhelmingly ranked it as their third favorite Terminator film, the majority of critics and public lampooned it (and its actors), making Genisys the unofficial punching bag of 2015.

Did James Cameron lie to millions of people about “TERMINATOR GENISYS”?

Unlike “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” and “Terminator Salvation”, fans everywhere knew that the creator of our favorite franchise, James Cameron actually had some involvement with the latest Terminator film “Terminator Genisys”.   Acknowledging that his goal was “being loosely attached to the film” without credit, all while accepting meetings between him and Skydance C.E.O.

BUILDING A TERMINATOR: How Legacy Effects created a 1984 Arnold for “Terminator Genisys”!

When the co-owner of Legacy Effects and a disciple of Stan Winston, John Rosengrant first broke down the story elements of “Terminator Genisys” in the aspect of pratical effect needs, there was a section that caught his eye. It was when the Guardian Terminator and Sarah Connor were lugging around a young, deactivated Arnold T-800 Terminator in a back of an armored car in 1984.  Logic dictated to Rosengrant that the creation of this Terminator corpse would best be accomplished with practical effects, so John and his team took upon the task of building a prosthetic dummy of an 1984 Arnold Schwarzenegger. So how did Legacy effects accomplish such a seemingly insurmountable task?
