4th April 2019

We're all anticipating the return of the Terminator franchise, not because of the last movie which wasn't as bad as suggested but because it reunited Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton in the lead roles.

Today courtesy of an exclusive from IGN.com we have some new images to look at, and our first sight of Schwarzenegger looking very un-Terminator like!.

The film is out in the UK on November 1st 2019 and we are promised a trailer will drop very soon.

20th September 2017

James Cameron is going back to the Terminator series to restart it, and with the latest news it looks like it will be a true sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

He already had Arnold Schwarzenegger on board and not The Hollywood Reporter is reporting he has Linda Hamilton back.

The character was killed off in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines which Cameron had nothing to do with, so to include the character and the original actress means the new trilogy will ignore all the films past part 2.

Terminator Genisys had the character but due to some time shift storyline it was a younger version and was played by Emilia Clarke.

The series is shaping up nicely, and it will be interesting to see how the story comes together if it is based 30 years after the events of Terminator part 2.

8th July 2015

The threat of the terminator posed no challenge for the Minions this week as the little green beings held on to the top spot with relative ease.

A second week at the top and a weekend gross of £6.2 million brings the total gross of the animated film to £20.9 million after 10 days of release.

Highest new entry of the week is Mr Schwarzenegger's return to the franchise which made him a star, Terminator.

Terminator Genisys enters the chart at number 2 with a weekend gross of £3.7 million, a little low maybe for a highly anticipated film such as this.

In comparison Terminator Salvation made £6.9 million on its debut, Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines took £6.08 million on its debut, so Genisys is running at half those two films.

Jurassic World continues to pull in the numbers and this week brings its total to £53 million.

Other new film this week are Magic Mike XXL at 4, documentary Amy at 5, with £523,192 the highest new entry for a documentary in the UK and Guillaume Tell Royal Opera House at 8.

11th June 2014

The biggest of the weeks new releases hits the top of the box office with no current releases able to challenge it.

The 21 Jump Street sequel 22 Jump Street debuts at the top of the box office this week with a weekend take of around £4.8 million.

21 Jump Street was released in March 2012, a tougher time of year for a films release, it debuted at 2 taking £1.5 on it's debut going on to take nearly 10 million over 7 weeks. With better reviews this time around 22 should do better.

Jump Street removes last week top film Maleficent down to the runner up position although it still manages a £2 million weekend with a 10 day gross of £11 million.

Little else doing well on the box office this week, especially Grace of Monaco with enters the box office at 9 with just over £200,000 is takings, the one off D-Day concert did better from far less screens.

This time last year and despite the terrible reviews Will Smith and son debuted at the top with After Earth knocking The Hangover Part III to second place.

Five years ago the Terminator saga continued with Terminator Salvation taking over at the top on it's debut knocking Night at the Museum 2 down to second place.

Ten years ago Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban took over from The Day After Tomorrow at the top which fell to second place.

Fifteen years ago Notting Hill retained it's place at the top for a second week leaving Human Traffic to debut at 3 at the highest new film.

Twenty years ago Four Weddings and a Funeral was still the top film around with Beverly Hills Cop III and Bad Girls debuting well.

Twenty Five years ago Indianan Jones and the Last Crusade was still the top film in June with the Bond film Licence to Kill and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels debuting well.

11th February 2010

When you think that The Terminator stands of one of the best cinematic series of all time, and despite part 3 not being great the rights to Terminator and all that may have it's name attached have just been sold for as little as $30 million.

What's also surprising is that despite 2 big film studios/distribution companies bidding for the right, Sony and Lionsgate, the sale goes to holdings company Pacificor, but this seems more like a financial agreement rather than a purchase.

Previous rights holders Halcyon have been having money troubles, probably because of Terminator Salvation, and this sale will clear their debts, although they will still get $5 million from and further Terminator movies made and revenue from Terminator 3 and Salvation sales.

Ironically it seems that Sony, who have had international distribution on Terminator movies, are not out of the picture just yet as it's been reported that Pacificor may yet sell the rights to them?

Salvation was supposed to have been the start of a new trilogy, and there are still stories to tell in this series, but like other films that Orion Films made in the 80's and 90's copyright has been an issue getting in the way.
