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:
Is your collectible shelf ready for an 18 inch unstoppable killing machine from the future, reprogrammed to protect the future? Well NECA Toys has officially released their 18 inch, quarter scale T-800 Model 101 from Terminator2: Judgment Day 3D and boy is it a beauty!
“I know now why you cry. But it is something I could never do.” When the T-800 Model 101 said those heartbreaking words to young John Connor before he sacrificed his life for the sake of humanity in Terminator 2: Judgment Day”, it brought many viewers to tears. This poignant moment clearly defined the difference between humans and machines, and why humanity must be preserved.
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!
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?
At least once a month we receive an e-mail from someone in our Army of Terminator fans stating bodybuilder Calum von Moger should be cast as a Terminator. They are not suggesting he play any old Terminator. No, these fans are proposing that Moger be cast as the biggest Terminator of all, the T-800 Model 101 made famous by actor Arnold Schwarzenegger!
