    The real question is "Will the Terminators actually be scary?" C'mon, give them some intimidation factor. They haven't had that since the T-1000 was stalking Los Angeles while disguised as a motorcycle cop.

    Terminator salvation is to the terminator movies as the star wars prequels are to the star wars movies. only i actually thought terminator salvation didn't have the most annoying character in cinematic history.

    Salvation was half a good movie with a weak 2nd act resulting from the shift in character focus from actor ego, a decent 3rd act and an ok ending.

    By contrast, T3 had a terrible 1st act, decent 2nd/3rd act and a great ending.

    TSCC managed to make Cromartie/John Henry creepy/scary in the same way the T-1000 was in several episodes. Even the chick from Garbage managed to be creepy a few times.

    So it's not T5, but a reboot trilogy. Bizarre.

    I anxiously await the reboot of The Fast & Furious franchise in 20 years.

    I would prefer a reboot to more sequels. Although, I don't love the idea of either

    Megan Ellison has a very, decently good track record in trying to make her own name.

    I am at least willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on this for now, considering she fought hard to get these rights.

    No... they just called Fast 4 Fast & Furious, but it was a continuation of the same storyline.

    The Terminator franchise is nothing more than cyborg assassins, time travel and the apocalypse. The latter two go very well with reboots, and the first is irrelevant to reboots.

    This is why they're going with a reboot, because there's very little interest in the franchise right now. It's not a decision based on the story, but on attracting customers.

    I'm only on board if they get Edward Furlong for the 2nd movie.

    i am intrigued, and willing to possibly consider allowing it, but only with the stipulation that terminator design and style remain unchanged. that **** is iconic. also they have to make the DUH-DUH DUH DUH DUH noise at least twice.

    I wonder if they'll go with another giant bodybuilder type.

    Personally I can't wait until they reboot The Godfather and the film industry implodes.

    I know that R.I.P.D. is based off an original comic, but how the hell could you not think of Men In Black when watching that?

    It's not going to be easy to top Cameron's films, guys.

    They're probably just going to try and make this series all dark and gritty and dystopian now.
