Terminator reboot gets a new title

Introducing... Terminator: Genesis

Paramount and Annapurna’s 2015 Terminator reboot has been given an official title, with the new film set to go by the name Terminator: Genesis.

The new film will apparently take the original as a starting point, before steering the saga in a whole new direction, with a number of sequels and a tie-in TV series also planned.

As such, the new title fits the bill in a slightly generic way, although it’s vastly preferable to Terminator: Evolution, which was surely tossed around in at least one ideas meeting...

The project is thought to be deciding between Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson for the key role of Sarah Connor, while Tom Hardy is reportedly the studio’s pick to play her son, John.

Directed by Alan Taylor, with Arnold Schwarzenegger also set to make a return, Terminator: Genesis will open in the US on 1 July 2015, with a UK date still to be confirmed.

What do you think of the new title? Tell us, below!

      the problem with terminator reboots is that, without arnie being a real life flesh and blood terminator, it loses its realism. just look at salvation, as good as it was as a stand a lone film. when you had fake arnie trashing the place he was much more "I, Robot" than "f**k you a*****e" which ruined what could have been a much better ending

      Considering how they name films now i was expecting the word 'Guardians' in the title. Also it sounds dreadful

      It will be a PG-13, all because Hollywood no longer knows how to make movies for grown ups. Like they did in the 80s.

      Well I did love Thor: The Dark World so I am willing to give Alan Taylor a chance.
