Terminator 5 Update

Terminator 5 Update

It’s now been four years since ‘Terminator: Salvation’ was released and since then future sequels for the franchise have been uncertain at best. Salvation was originally intended to be the first of a new trilogy of films, however the series in that form has been left aside.

It was recently announced however that the franchise will continue with a new film slated for a June 2015 release with distribution by Paramount Pictures. Both Paramount and franchise owner Skydance Productions made a joint press release indicating the new film is intended to be the first of a new standalone trilogy of Terminator films (sound familiar?).

It seems that the current intent is for this new film to essentially act as a reboot for the series, however whether that is intended to be a true reboot to the entire franchise, or more of an Incredible Hulk-esque distant independent sequel to the previous films, we’ll have to wait and see.

Should Terminator 5 hit its mark in 2015, it’ll be competing with both Star Wars: Episode VII and Avengers 2, making for one unforgettable summer of films.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
