Cameron says this will take place right after T2, tho bringing back Arnold and Linda Hamilton seems to render that problematic.

Thing is, T2 had a happy ending. How can they do a sequel without screwing it up? (I'm thinking MEN IN BLACK II, here.)

I'm not enthusiastic about it. 

When are we going to stop revisiting the past? And tinkering with it? No-one seems to want to move forward.

It dawned on me recently that 2001 was the last year any non-prequel Trek aired on TV (and 2002 was the last year we saw any non-prequel Trek on the big screen). Since that time, nothing but prequels and tinkering.

In another interview from last week (I forgot from which site), Cameron suggests that there is a human character from which the Terminators take their likenesses from. So we may see Arnold playing that guy.

Yawn.  Keep this up, and someone like Spielberg will eventually cave and give us E.T., PART II...

Just leave these movies alone!

I feel the franchise should have ended after the sequel. Each subsequent entry is unwieldy. I'm not even sure what is going on nowadays.

The only way to keep my interest would be to have a PREDATOR VS TERMINATOR film...

PREDATOR VS  TERMINATOR or ROBOCOP VS TERMINATOR (which I believe did happen in a comic mini-series) would have been good....back when both actors were younger.

(I've heard a few people suggest an ALIENS VS. TERMINATOR, and I don't like that idea at all.)

I think they should leave the franchise well enough alone. But I'm glad it's at least going to be a film that takes place between other films. GENISYS' ending was a perfect way to wrap up the franchise. Though I'm sure there will eventually be a sequel. Or a remake of the first film.

Painful to think that the first film has been around long enough to be remake fodder!

What a shame they've already done a female Terminator. :-pppp

I wonder if anyone has attempted any sort of BACK TO THE FUTURE meets THE TERMINATOR parody...?

It's not great cinema but I've had some enjoyment from each of the films so I'm
a little interested.

No clue, but I'd love to see a BACK TO THE FUTURE meets BILL & TED parody.

I thought Terminator 3, Salvation and Genysis were fairly silly but Terminator movies are inherently visually interesting so I always end up rewatching them on cable. 

If they must go back to the well, the novels by S.M Sterling had some good ideas.

I'd be more interested if Cameron was directing.

Difficult to say which is more of a folly: the prospect of three new Terminator films or four more Avatars...

I mean, if there's any franchise where it's appropriate to keep going back to it and making changes, I guess it's this one.

But yeah, it's kind of exhausting.

A film that would be appropriate to go back to ad nauseum would be Groundhog Day :)

The first movie fit perfectly within itself. Part 2 was fun action, but the plot does not fit within the continuity of the first movie.

The first movie being grounded in a certain era (cold war) make a remake a better option than another sequel.

It does, if we allow that Cameron was inventing his own rules for time travel.

Peter David wrote a silly essay for CBG, condemning the way time travel was played in the movies, but he used Marvel's rules, which did not apply to Cameron's "universe".

The important thing to remember is that Sarah Connor is the lynchpin of the whole thing. The only thing that matters is that everything fits within her personal timeline -- which it does.

Exactly.

The only liberty Cameron took is that the T-1000 was sent back to kill young John immediately after T-800 was sent back to 1984 (Skynet being thorough in its last-ditch attempt to win the war), and that Reese simply wasn't told about it by the adult John Connor. That plays more as a reveal than as an incongruous retcon. It's the post-T2 sequels which began totally rewriting everything and turning the timeline into a tangled mess.

Wow, the Universal Studios 3-D ride closes today?!

I was just there 2 weeks ago... wish I'd known, I might have appreciated it a little more!
