There will be lots of Terminator Genisys news hitting in the next couple of days.
If you visit Terminator Genisys Site/Motion Poster!
Once the hourglass motif motion poster has played a countdown will appear for the official release of the first Terminator Genisys trailer! We are very close Terminator fans!
In other news Christopher Beck (Edge of Tomorrow) has apparently been hired to do the music for the film. Good luck to you sir, know that there is a bias against you already (not on my behalf).
Also some friends have done some code digging on the site and found a background with the tagline: Time Is The Ultimate Weapon.– expect to see that soon.
Expect a lot of images tomorrow or Friday depending on if I have time, I’ll dertainly post a detailed breakdown/analysis of the trailer as soon as I can.
Until then, Hasta la Vista!
There’s been quite a bit of talk about Terminator: Genisys in the last week from actor Jai Courtney who is playing Kyle Reese in the film which hits July 1, 2015.
He’s talked about the films POSSIBLE rating based on the film they shot and their not being any f-words in the script as likely to be PG-13. I shouldn’t need to remind anyone how dark and gritty a film can be with that rating. I will also remind you that the film is still being edited, sound designed, digital effects created and fine tuned etc. and thus for obvious reasons the film itself has not been submitted for a rating from the MPAA.
He also mentioned that it was kind of funny working with the endoskeleton actors in that they were people dressed in performance capture suits. This has me very excited as such technology really has a chance to bring the endo armies of Skynet to life in a way that will make them seem more real than ever before.
For those who are worried about that meaning there was no puppetry work at all, we have really no information either way but I’d say that there would still be puppetry work in certain shots and circumstances. I think Terminator and Jurassic World both sequels I’m greatly looking forward to using performance capture technology for Endos and certain Dinos respectively it makes sense to embrace the advancements in technological outgrowth and film making enhancements.
Hello all Ross here!
Terminator: Genisys, which hits July 2015, has been shrouded in secrecy with a very tight set and very few images being leaked online which in the days of smart phones is pretty much unheard of and welcome if you ask me. In fact we’re about 10 months out and have very little officially confirmed news regarding Genisys which is a “soft reboot” of the Terminator series.
Expect that news to be rectified in the near future.
Let’s not forget that it is also the first part in a trilogy of films, the plan being to shoot the sequels back to back a la Back to the Future 2 and 3.
The films have to be shot and released in this truncated time period because the rights will revert to series creator Director/Writer James Cameron at that time.
So what was Paramount Pictures big announcement earlier today?
Paramount Pictures have been very very secretive about all of the filming for the upcoming Terminator film. They quickly terminated a youtube account that put up videos showing the filming of future war scenes. And the only leaked photos since has been from three nights of shooting:
1: A redo of the police chase in T1.
2: A setup at a hospital.
3: A SWAT style van and a police cruiser with Kyle and Sarah stunt doubles.
Now word has come out that filming is about to wrap with on location shooting at Oracle Headquarters in Redwood Shores in Redwood City California.
Could this be Cyberdyne Systems?
Oracle is the second largest computer software developer in the U.S. behind Microsoft. And the CEO of Oracle is none other than Larry Ellison father of producers Megan and David Ellison. I’m not the only one to look at the campus and come to the possible conclusion that it might be used as Cyberdyne Systems in the upcoming Terminator film.
Hey folks Ross here with another article on Terminator: Genesis (T:G)!
There’s been an awful lot of scuttlebutt and discussion about T:G as recently there have been photographs from two scenes being filmed for T:G which have appeared online.
Firstly there was a scene I believe will be revealed to be at a children’s hospital which caused a stir because it showed Arnold as the long term Terminator, Kyle Reese, Sarah Connor and the actor hired to play an older John Connor all in the same scene.
Daily Mail Article
The second behind the scenes pictures showed the Kyle and Sarah stunt doubles in the back of a vehicle that looks like it could be doubling for a truck like the S.W.A.T. from T2. They’re shooting a scene where they shoot out of the back of the van at at least one Police cruiser.

T:G which is shooting in New Orleans (Jurassic World is also shooting there now after a successful shoot in the Hawaiian islands) is also drawing intrigue by the lack of information about the plot and the time periods. There have been hints that the soft reboot will be re-telling events from T1 but differently.
After looking at some articles from last month I think we can put together a general idea of if nothing else the through-line of events in Terminator: Genesis!
Consider yourself warned! Article could potentially spoil some plot elements!
Hello there loyal readers, this is Timstuff reporting for duty! This is my first post filling in for Ross, and I’ve got an interesting snippet to share from an interview, which T4 director McG did over at Film Journal.
As he puts the finishing touches on Terminator Salvation, McG is already looking ahead to the next chapter in what the studio hopes will be another trilogy. “I strongly suspect the next movie is going to take place in a [pre-Judgment Day] 2011,” McG reveals. “John Connor is going to travel back in time and he’s going to have to galvanize the militaries of the world for an impending Skynet invasion. They’ve figured out time travel to the degree where they can send more than one naked entity. So you’re going to have hunter killers and transports and harvesters and everything arriving in our time and Connor fighting back with conventional military warfare, which I think is going to be fucking awesome. I also think he’s going to meet a scientist that’s going to look a lot like present-day Robert Patrick [who famously played the T-1000 in Terminator 2], talking about stem-cell research and how we can all live as idealized, younger versions of ourselves.”
I’m not entirely sure what to make of it. It could either be really good, or really bad. While a part of me would rather they use this new trilogy to focus on bringing this new future war time line to its conclusion, I can’t help but get a little hyped up at the thought of an Independence Day scale robot invasion / war movie within the Terminator universe. I suppose we’ll have to wait and see how it pans out, but color me intrigued.
On a side note, me and TerrasJ have done some discussion about some ideas we’ve had for this blog while it’s in our care, and one thing we’re both looking forward to is a chance to bring you some reviews of the new Terminator merchandise that will be hitting shelves this season. As a long time merchandise and toy enthusiast, I look forward to sharing my insights with you.
