It’s been a few years since we’ve seen a new Terminator film at this point, Terminator: Salvation was released back in 2009 starring Christian Bale and Sam Worthington, of course we’ve had a few seasons of the Sarah Conner Chronicles on TV however a new feature film has taken its time.
Terminator: Salvation was set-up in a way that would allow a new trilogy to unfold, however that obviously never eventuated but a new film titled Terminator: Genisys is edging closer and closer, due for release in mid-2015.
Paramount still has big plans for the franchise, not content to take a wait and see approach with Genisys, they have already announced dates for two sequels to the film! The second and third instalments of the new – new Terminator trilogy have been slated for May 2017, and June 2018.
No official word on story direction, however this new trilogy will see Arnie back in the role next year. With sequels already announced, Paramount is clearly planning ahead with a bit more confidence and certainty this time around. Let’s hope it pays off!
