JAMES CAMERON RETURNS TO TERMINATOR
#39
Cool.
I understand people who are doubious about those new Terminators movies but Cameron was clear: they are all made and conceptualized as one-off movies.
If this first "T" movie does not work financially they will not make more and it won't matter much cause the first movie will tell a story that is self-sufficient. I'm okay with that. It's not like T4 and T5 that ended with an opened door to movies that never came.
I never was really okay for a "new" Alien 3 movie who could remove the actual 3 and 4 from the "canon" but I think the Terminator franchise, with its time travel story, is a good place to play that game. You can see 3,4,5 as alternate timelines, while 1,2 and this new movie are a continuation of the same story. Like I said before I just really hope that by the end of this movie we have a sens of conclusion. I want something classy, simple and well rounded. The first movie made clear judgment day will happen no matter what, T2 hinted that maybe we can, by our actions, change the course of time (but we don't know if the characters did that or not), this new movie has the difficult task to either make it clear they changed the timeline or not, or they can also keep things vague at the end (but it would not make for a good conclusion, IMO). If I was in charge I'd make it post judgment day. They didn't change anything but they saved their leader, John, and they still have to survive. I always assumed Sarah died  that day, but maybe not, maybe she's still here in the middle of the war with her son. The problem being that they already shown us the perfect ending of a good trilogy at the begining of Genesys: the sending of Kyle in 1984. So unless they want to show us that story from a different perspective they need to find something new that makes sens. I'm afraid they'll just make a story set in present day that makes clear they stopped judgment day from happening but there's a new threat... only I think everyone wants to see the war against the machines as told by Cameron (?)
