Why The Next Three Terminator Reboots That No One Wanted Will Fail
He’ll be back. She’ll be back. They’ll be back. And, no one, except for some misguided, desperate, insulated Hollywood bigshots asked for three more Terminator movies.
As The Hollywood Reporter noted, James Cameron announced the next three installments at a private gathering celebrating the franchise. It’s set to feature Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the storyline’s anchors.
Why? It’s far from a mystery that Paramount Pictures is struggling. The pressure on new Paramount Chief Jim Gianopoulos to strike gold is mounting by the day.
Compound that with James Cameron, whose mega hit Avatar hasn’t really aged well, isn’t even directing these next three Terminator installments. Instead, he’s going to executive produce by managing a team of writers and directors. Sounds like a winning formula, right? But wait, there’s much, much more.
As if there isn’t enough cucked content out there already, it seems they want to make this a girl power reboot in the vein of the latest Star Wars movies.
More on that from The Hollywood Reporter:
But the new movie will also be seen as a passing of the baton to a new generation of characters.
"We’re starting a search for an 18-something woman to be the new centerpiece of the new story," Cameron said. "We still fold time. We will have characters from the future and the present. There will be mostly new characters, but we'll have Arnold and Linda’s characters to anchor it."
So, Arnold and Linda will hang out as old timey tour guides for yet another Katniss Everdeen heroine even though the entire franchise hangs on mankind’s savior John Connor? Cool story, bros.
With so much imagination going to waste at a time when Artifical Intelligence is an existential hot topic, it’s a shame that we’re getting more girl power retreads, rather than bold, visionary sci-fi projects not tainted by Cultural Marxism. New stories are sorely needed to guide us through the next few decades of technological perils.
Americans won’t be back for these flops.
