'Terminator' News: Release Dates Set For Trilogy
Paramount has announced the release dates for the highly anticipated Terminator trilogy reboot films.
'Termintor' Trilogy Release Dates
The Terminator trilogy’s first film – Terminator: Genisys – is set for release July 1, 2015. The second film will hit theaters May 19, 2017 and the third and final film in the trilogy is slated for release on June 29, 2018, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The two follow-up films are contingent on the success of Genisys. Should Genisys be a success at the box office, the cast and crew will shoot the second and third films in the franchise back-to-back.
Starring in the Alan Taylor-directed Terminator reboot is Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) and Jai Courtney (Divergent). Arnold Schwarzenegger is reprising his role as the Terminator from the original films. Emilia Clarke is playing Sarah Connor, while Jason Clarke is playing John Connor and Courtney is playing Kyle Reese.
Back in August, Schwarzenegger revealed that they’d wrapped shooting on Genisys, and expressed his confidence in the final product doing justice to the original films – the first of which came out in 1984.
“Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenysis for a fantastic shoot. It was challenging, it was fun, and it was rewarding,” Schwarzenegger wrote on Instagram. “From our director to the producers, from the camera team to catering, from visual effects to hair and makeup – we couldn’t have done it without you.”
"I can’t wait to see our finished project and I know we’ll remind the fans why they fell in love with the Terminator,” the actor added.
