What do you think, is it a good idea to make another Terminator film over a decade after the last?

I loved both previous Terminator films, I always liked the sequal more. At the time it was the most expensive movie ever made, now Terminator 3 has started shooting, and has almost double the budget!

Here is the first promo shot from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

"Rise Of The Machines"? I thought the chips was destroyed in "Judgement Day", effectively eliminating Skynet as a possibility.

Anywho, the first two Terminator movies was great. T" was one of the best action movies ever made, but I liked the original movie better, more sci-fi-like.

It's sounds like a good idea with a T3, as long as they don't delibarately try to top T2, but rather concentrated on making a good plot/story. Then again Arnold Schwarzenegger is more than a decade older, and haven't appeared in anything good the last couple of years. I'm fairly neutral about it, but will probably go see it, once it's released.

Don't confuse not caring with not knowing!

this is a prequel, meaning this was before he was good and died...The star is the father of her son in this movie (he died in the first movie after having sex with her  tongue)

I'd like the crack you're smoking, because...

"Premise: A decade after Skynet sent back the T-1000, John Connor faces a female Terminator, the T-X, with power over all machines. But John has another protector: a new T-800 unit Terminator is sent back through time to help guide John through the coming battle. "

they conveniently left a T-800 arm there.

oh, and about the movie, it won't be as great as the previous to, seeing as there's no Edward Furlong or Linda Hamilton or James Cameron and Arnold's getting old.
still could be cool, and i'll of course se it.

Yet another crappy Hollywood sequel that should never have been made.

Of course I'll see it.  wink

Well , it's only the sequel to one of the best movies ever made. If this movie is good, maybe it'll be the best trilogy ever.

One thing the worries me a lot is the fact that unlike the previous two Terminator films, James Camron isn't directing it.

Johnathan Mostow is directing, and his background is not all that reassuring...also, Linda Hamilton is not in T3 either. In fact, the only remaining major element from the first two is the Raging Aging Arnold. I hope it will be a good movie--but these are not good signs. It may be another case of A Sequel Too Far.

The best Trilogy? That'll be the LOTR or Star Wars trilogy.

T3 will probably knock some of the remaining polish from the original, and the sequel, which created a bizzare paradox in the first place.

All a load of bloody stupid sequel mongering.

Eh, Terminator is the only series where Arnold's acting skills make him like his character. Stiff? Wooden? Perfect!

He's only directed the pilot and May 3rd's season finale, I think. You'd be better off using Pirahna II: The Spawning as an example--except that he was fired less than one-third of the way into filming and they kept his name because his replacement didn't want HIS name on the screen...

Actually I don't think he directed the pilot. But whatever.

It's still his show. Still his "vision".

is the official title "Dark Angel" or "James Cameron's Dark Angel"?

I never heard of the MAtrix triology, i thought there's only one movie.
Also what do you call a 2 trilogy's.
As that what Star Wars will be when the third one comes out.

Strangely, part of the plot for this new movie was revealed to me as I checked out the preview for a new Terminator game (yes, a Terminator video game) that admittedly will lack a Schwarzenegger-esque feel to it. It features the new T-400 and T-800, with Skynet having to do with it.

Yep FryBender3000, they're making the sequels to the Matrix as we speak. Matrix II and III will be coming out soon to a cinema near youuuuuuuu-ou-ou-uuuuuuuu *fades out echo*

Can I sell it or what?

And I am looking forward to them very much. The Matrix is probably my fave big blockbuster movie

I'll wait for it to come to video or TV, I thought the first one was better than the second by a long way.

Well, yea I should have said his last big action movie. One thing I forgot to consider though is thanks to todays technology it would be possible to make another Terminator film without ever having to have Arnold himself act in the movie. So it would be possible to have more great Arnold flicks later on even after Arnold himself has retired.

Wow, it's been over a year that we had this thread?

The trailer is pretty rockin' (Hey! An explosion for every minute of the movie!) I didn't expect Arnold to kick ass like he did in the trailer. He's still got it. I hope they do justice to the story, too. It looks ready to make some really big bucks.

I thought I saw the T-800 hefting a coffin in the preview I caught a glimpse of.

This film is going to really have to rock (and feature another star) to conform to my rule of trilogies.  So far the only name that jumps out at me is Claire Danes.

My friend Joe, whom was with me when we saw the trailer to this in front of The Matrix: Reloaded:

"Gosh, I used to want to see this movie. Now (after the trailer), I don't."

Five words sprung to my mind during the same trailer: "Arnold Shwartzenegger: Old and Haggard" He's gotta be pushing 55, right?

Didn't one of the first trailers feature Ah-nold using the goofiest line ever: "She'll be baw-ck."  I remember my best friend freaking about about it a while ago...
Anyway, it looks interesting, but I should prolly watch the first two films before seeing it if I decide to go.  I won't see it opening night either...I'd rather spend my $6.25 watching Elle Woods lobby for animal rights.  cool

$6.25 - It's $13.95 at the theater where I work, and that's Canadian, even cheap Tuesday is $9.00.

Anyway, no one at the theater where I work think T3 is going to be very big, at least not compared to The Matrix Reloaded. Personally I couldn't really care at the moment. I'm still loathing about how busy the theater is with Matrix. I'm not really looking forward to any of the summer's big box office sequels.
