Paramount pulls Terminator sequel from schedule, replaces it with Baywatch

01.20.2016

There's been quite a lot of shuffling around of release dates today, with Disney pushing STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII from May to December and moving PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES into Star Wars' now vacant May slot. Sony also shuffled around a few of their upcoming films by moving Tom Holland's first solo SPIDER-MAN film up a few weeks and pushing the JUMANJI remake back into 2017. Paramount is also doing some reorganizing today but, if you were looking forward to the TERMINATOR: GENISYS sequel, it's bad news.

TERMINATOR: GENISYS was set up to be the first of a new sequence of TERMINATOR films and, had it performed well, we'd be well on our way to the second installment by now. Unfortunately the film vastly under-performed in the domestic market in addition to receiving mediocre reviews, which left the already scheduled sequel looking like it wasn't going to be the sure thing that Paramount had hoped it would be. TERMINATOR: GENISYS performed much better internationally and, in the case of some franchises, that'd be enough to keep things moving forward, but Paramount has just announced that they're pulling the TERMINATOR: GENISYS sequel from their schedule. The sequel had been set for a May 19, 2017 release and Paramount isn't about let the date stay empty for long, they're moving Dwayne Johnson's BAYWATCH film into its place.

It's a shame that TERMINATOR: GENISYS wasn't able to be the triumphant return that many hoped it would be, but while the future of TERMINATOR doesn't exactly look bright, Skydance Media Chief Creative Officer Dana Goldberg said last year that the franchise would return after some "re-adjusting."

Why do I cry Arnie, because of these sequels....

Not surprising at all. But whats really sad is that they won't give up on these Terminator sequels.

I won't be back

The problem with all films after T2 is lack of character continuity - 4 different John Connors is a classic case of why this has gone wrong. 3,4,5 all had decent ideas between them to probably make 1 good film. Personally the female T in T3 was abysmal. Another problem is moving away from the tone and theme that the first established - we've never really had the apocalyptic war that T1&T2 alluded too and I have put on here many times that I would have preferred a film with the premise around

" It's a shame that TERMINATOR: GENISYS wasn't able to be the triumphant return that many hoped it would be "

Really?!? Thats not the impression I got from the majority of the Schmoes who saw this coming a mile away. I dunno maybe the marketing dept. is to be blamed for played a big part in the failure, who knows.

But whatever the reason I guess its now time for the franchise to do some soul-searching.

I suppose it's for the best. I didn't hate the film. I thought it had some cool ideas. Going back to the first film was pretty cool. It was nowhere near as good as the first two. I think if we don't compare it to any of the other films then it's pretty entertaining. Unfortunately for anyone who has seen the other films it's impossible to do that. Hopefully there's still a chance that we can get a really good Terminator film again. Maybe Arnold can go back to another of his beloved characters.

I'm okay with going back to the first movie and continue Genisys in an alternate timeline but the end result was disappointing, mainly because of the personified Skynet. It's just not that scary comparing to the unstoppable T-800 from the first movie or T-1000 from T2.

Sad, a beloved franchise so badly butchered that not even James Cameron will be able to salvage now

There was some hope that when James Cameron regained the rights to the Terminator franchise in 2019 that he would make another installment. At this point, the franchise is dead beyond even reboot repair. The US has given up on Arnold, but the Chinese movie market still loves the man.

I'm a big Terminator fan but it's sad for even me to say that they should leave this franchise in peace - no more Terminator movie.
