We thought the latest (and likely last) Terminator movie was actually pretty entertaining – if not all that memorable. It certainly underwhelmed at the box office, and Screen Junkies is here with their thoughts on the dark fate of Jim Cameron’s once-blockbuster franchise.
Terminator: Dark Fate might have underwhelmed at the box office, but we still have a soft spot in our hearts for the franchise. Now, thanks to editor Fabrice Mathieu, multiple T-800s are sent back in time by Skynet to protect Cyberdyne, but John Connor has reprogrammed them to attack each other for our amusement.
Chronicle Collectibles and Cinemaquette teamed up to create a 78″ tall T-800 Endoskeleton statue. Based on the robot’s appearance in Terminator: Genisys, the statue is chrome plated, has LED eyes and articulated forearms and fingers. Limited to 100 units.
With Linda Hamilton back on screen, James Cameron involved in the story, and Tim Miller of Deadpool fame behind the camera, we’re actually kind of excited for the new Terminator flick. The latest trailer showcases more of Sarah Conner’s story, and what transpired after the events of T2. Drops 11/1/19.
By all accounts, Terminator 3 wasn’t on the same level as its predecessors. But it did have some cool visuals and exciting action sequences. It also had one particularly amusing scene that ended up on the cutting room floor, and it explains why the T-800 looks and sounds like it does.
Set after 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Dark Fate sees Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise their roles as Sarah Connor and the T-800. Along with a soldier from the future, they try to protect a hybrid Terminator from a new T-1000. Directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and premieres 11/1/19.
iCollector is auctioning off a Harley-Davidson Fat Boy motorcycle that was used in the filming of Terminator 2. The motorcycle has seen better days, but it has only 392mi on it and was acquired directly from the movie’s production company. Clothes and boots not included.
The Greatest Movie Moments in the Universe Ever provides their take on the 1984 classic The Terminator, but they don’t think Arnold Schwarzenegger was Sarah Connor’s biggest foe. Their take is that the true villain of the film was hiding in plain sight in the movie’s first act.
We can’t imagine how much time it took, but Mikhail Kramer replicated all of the major scenes from T2 using Grand Theft Auto V and a number of custom models. It’s been condensed to just an hour, but it’s still incredible. If nothing else, watch the canal chase sequence.
MudbrainsTvDIY gives us a brief glimpse at an amazing build – he replicated the T-800 arm that Miles Dyson had in Terminator 2. It’s made entirely from cardboard, glue, and varnish. If you’ve got about 7 hours to spare, you can watch how he built it, step by laborious step.
Jason Yang performs a spot-on violin and keyboard medley of two themes which should be immediately familiar to fans of horror and sci-fi – Bear McCreary’s The Walking Dead, and Brad Fiedel’s The Terminator. You got your undead peanut butter in my cyborg chocolate!
