Arnold Schwarzenegger - Terminator 5 Lives! Finally Gets Definite Release Date

The fate of the upcoming Terminator movie (fifth in the franchise) has been largely uncertain for the past year or so. Following the success of 2009’s Terminator: Salvation, a fifth installment was known to be in the works for a long time, even having a director attached at one point – Justin Lin, who is no longer directing it. Then the news ceased for a while, prompting questions of whether it was getting made at all. However, with the involvement of Paramount – the studio has partnered up with David Ellison's Skydance Pictures and Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures, it looks like production has finally been kicked into gear, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

So much so, in fact, that Paramount have actually announced a release date for the film – June 26 2015. This is an ambitious endeavour, considering the slew of movies also slated for a summer 2015 release – from the recently confirmed Independence Day 2, to Marvel’s Avengers 2, which we’ve known would be happening for a while now. With Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, Star Wars: Episode VII, Assassin's Creed, Finding Dory and more coming out within that timeframe, calling it the summer of the sequels would be an understatement.

However, when Paramount got on board for the Terminator franchise, they didn’t do it halfway. Terminator 5 will not be a standalone movie or a continuation of the Salvation plot. Instead, it will be part of a brand new trilogy with a brand new story arc and, presumably, a way for Paramount to squeeze every last drop of profit from the franchise. As for the former Governator, he doesn’t seem to be too bothered about hanging up his artificial red eye and quitting the role that made him famous anytime soon.
