Terminator Genisys left audiences baffled — hardly the get back to form for the franchise’s we’d hoped for soon after Terminator: Salvation (remember that movie?), and although there were some exciting / wacky ideas within, Genisys was mostly miscast and about as dull as Jai Courtney himself. Final we heard, this franchise’s producers guaranteed fans that the collection would continue after some “recalibrating,” but today’s up-date isn’t a very hopeful one for anyone who was hoping for another sequel.
THR stories that Paramount offers removed the next Terminator sequel, aka Terminator 6, from its forthcoming release schedule, placing Dwayne Johnson’s R-rated Baywatch movie as a substitute on May 19, 2017.
That doesn’t bode well for your franchise, which — thanks to the magic of time travel — has a sort of built-in system function. The last couple of installments have hit that button to help underwhelming effect, essentially doing Terminator the Spider-Man of Very important. For all its faults, Genisys did embrace at all times travel stuff for the wackiest extent, opening up the opportunity for some really crazy timeline-hopping thoughts in potential long term installments — installments we might never see.
Unfortunately, Emilia Clarke had been sadly miscast as Darlene Connor, and while Arnold Schwarzenegger was a joy (as usual), there was in which whole Jai Courtney thing — at the least it looks like David Ayer ultimately figured out a way to fit him to good used in Suicide Squad. So that’s anything, right?
