James Cameron Plans To Return To The Terminator Franchise

Fans of the Terminator franchise can rejoice because there is hope for another good Terminator movie. James Cameron has directed two Terminator movies so far. The first one being The Terminator, and the second one being Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Both of them are considered really good action movies. However, there have been plenty of other Terminator movies that have come out. None of them have matched the quality of the first two installments. The most recent one Genisys has been considered the worst of the movies. The interesting thing was that both four and five were intended to reboot the franchise.

 

The rights to the franchise are going to revert to James Cameron in 2019. Therefore, he is planning one more film to be released in the franchise. Given James Cameron’s track record, one can expect that it is going to be a huge money maker. If he does manage to make the film, this could perhaps work as a trilogy for fans where they can skip Terminator 3, 4, and 5 and go straight to James Camerons Terminator movie if his plans do manifest. In order to show that he is serious, he has looked at some possible directors to helm the project.

 

Some fans do believe that the franchise is best left alone. For one thing, every director after James Cameron has failed to deliver on a high quality Terminator film. However, there is a Terminator project that has given a lot of promise. This project was the Sarah Connor Chronicles. This was a TV series that was an actual hit with the audience. It did justice to the mythos of The Terminator movies.

 

One thing that could be said about the Terminator franchise is that there is a possibility for yet another film in the franchise. If the film does turn out to be good, then it is best to end it on that note so that people can have a real good trilogy of films next to a trilogy of mediocre films.

 

Multiple Releases of Terminator 2

While the Terminator franchise is one of the most beloved franchises in the industry, one thing that is worth noting is that Terminator 2 is the only film in the franchise that has alternate versions of it released. There has been the theatrical version. Then there was the special edition which featured extra scenes. Some of them were shown in the original theatrical trailers for the film. Either way, the special editions of the film has shown scenes that have fleshed out some of the other characters. It made an already great story even better.

 

Now, Terminator 2 is getting yet another re-release. This time, it is going to be in 3D. However, there is no telling if it is going to be the original theatrical edit that is going to be released in theaters or the special edition with an extra amount of footage in it. Seeing that it is James Cameron that is behind this process, one could expect that the 3D is going to be nothing short of amazing.

 

Even the first Terminator film has only one version of it released. However, it was perfect in its pacing. The DVD release does have a few deleted scenes to go along with it. There were also rumors of alternate versions of Terminaror 3. However, those alternate versions have never seen the light of day. Therefore, the released version of Terminator 3 remains the only available version of the film. Even though Terminator 3 failed to live up to the glory of its predecessor, there are still some good aspects of the film. Even Terminator Salvation had something good to deliver in spite of its execution. Terminator Genisys is probably the one that had absolutely nothing new or good to add to the franchise.

 

Sometime in 2017, Terminator 2 is going to be re-released. Audiences will get to experience their favorite entry on the big screen again. They will also get to experience it like they never have before.

 

Terminator 2 To Get A 3D Release in 2017

I’ll be back, in 3D. James Cameron’s hit film, Terminator 2: Judgment Day is going to be re-released in 3D next year. Even though the Terminator franchise has continued on long after James Cameron left, none of the later films have lived up to the glory of the first two films. For one thing, Terminator 2 was not only a good story, but it also had some ground breaking visual effects. These effects not only stand the test of time, but they are more amazing than Terminator Genisys which was made more than 20 years after James Cameron’s masterpiece.

 

There has also been another 3D venture based on Terminator 2. This was called T23D. However, this is not the exact same as the blockbuster movie. This was actually a special film shot for the theme park. It showed John Connor and the Terminator fighting skynet. This is actually, the first showing of Terminator 2 in 3D. It would be a great experience for many to see their favorite franchise on the big screen again. Many people will relive their experience of seeing the franchise’s most beloved film on the big screen. Also, since James Cameron is really good when it comes to the technicalities, one can expect that the results are going to work well for the film.

 

Another thing to consider about Terminator 2 in 3D is that it could also be seen as the studio admitting that the most recent films have not lived up to the glory of James Cameron’s masterpiece. Therefore, they are releasing something that id going to give the audience something to remind them of the days when it was expected for a Terminator to be nothing short of amazing.

 

One of the interesting aspects of Terminator 2 is that it was a long chase. It also had a story of a father figure at its heart. This is perhaps one of the aspects of the first two Terminator films that made them so great. They were not just about action like the rest of the films were. However, Terminator Salvation was a noble effort in taking the series in a new direction.

 

What Fans Can Look Forward To If Terminator: Genisys Succeeds

Initial box office reports are indicating the new Terminator film is going to be a success. Terminator: Genisys may not be a massive hit like Jurassic World was, but ChicagoBooth said that the film should do well. Fans of the series should hope the return of the Terminator sells a lot of tickets because two very important decisions are riding on the feature’s box office prowess.

For one, the first film has to do well for new entries to be made. Terminator: Genisys is to be the start of a new trilogy. The last film in the trilogy may not star Arnold and could set up another trilogy. None of this is going to happen if the first part tanks.

Word has leaked about a new Terminator television show. No network or cable channel is going to be interested in an Arnold-less Terminator program if a $170 million dollar film with Arnold flops.

So, there really is a lot riding on Terminator: Genisys doing well at the box office.
