Last night at the Paramount Theatre in Los Angeles, California, the creator of the Terminator franchise James Cameron sat on stage with his friend and “Deadpool” director Tim Miller to discuss their future plans for an untitled new Terminator film we like to call Terminator 6. While the majority of the bullet points were covered within the Hollywood news feed… Linda Hamilton returns, Tim Miller directs, James Cameron produces (all reported HERE)… there was a bombshell involving Arnold Schwarzenegger that was all but ignored by the media. Luckily for Terminator fans however, one of our Army was actually in sitting in attendance and here is his report:
She’s back! Are we dreaming! Can someone pinch us? No this is happening Terminator fans! Actress Linda Hamilton, star of “The Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” is returning to the franchise one again as Sarah Connor in the next Terminator film!
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.
Most Terminator fans know that James Cameron originally intended a different ending for Terminator 2: Judgment Day, referred to as the future coda. This original filmed conclusion shows a brighter future thanks to the T-800 Model 101, featuring an old Sarah Connor reflecting about a Judgment Day that never occurred, and her son John Connor fighting a different fight now, as a U.S. Senator.
The T2 in 3D theatrical re-release date that we have all been waiting for is almost here! And now, today on James Cameron’s birthday, AMC has officially released brand new character posters for Robert Patrick as the T-1000, Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, and young Edward Furlong as the young John Connor!
The talented people at the Hero Complex Gallery has unveiled two new “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” prints created by artist Craig Drake, officially licensed by StudioCanal! And on these prints, Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor is in the forefront!
Out of all the questions left unanswered in the 2015 film “Terminator Genisys”, none are maybe more intriguing than who or what reprogrammed the T-800 Model 101 infiltrator “Pops” and sent him through the time displacment device back to 1973 to protect a young Sarah Connor from a T-1000 assassin. While writers Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier have confirmed multiple times they already know the answer and hope to reveal it in a future sequel, they have been reluctant to give Terminator fans any clue to who this person (or thing’s) identity is in the interim.
