Behind the Scenes from Arnold's New Terminator Film
While you have to wait until the November release to see the untitled Terminator reboot, here's a sneak peek of some behind-the-scenes action of filming from Budapest, Hungary.
By William Todd McKeown
Unfortunately, this video isn't a trailer for the film, but you do get to see some of the sets being used and scenes being filmed. It's great to see Arnold and Linda Hamilton sharing screen time together again.
You can view the footage below:
It's been 28 years since Schwarzenegger, Hamilton and James Cameron teamed up for a new Terminator film; the last time was for 1991’s blockbuster T2. Sadly, Cameron won’t be directing this film, but rather is taking on the title of producer. Directing the film is Tim Miller of Deadpool fame. Over the years, there have been a few Terminatormovies—Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), Terminator Salvation (2009) and Terminator Genisys (2015)—but you don’t need to worry about those films. This new project is said to be a direct sequel to T2. That sounds like good news to us! Though those three films had certain merits, they didn't live up to the bar set by the original two films. And Terminator Genisys nearly killed the franchise entirely. That film’s poor showing at the domestic and worldwide box office caused Paramount to cancel two proposed sequels . At that point, the Terminator franchise appeared to be, well … terminated. But when James Cameron—the man who created the franchise and helmed other cinematic giants such as True Lies, Titanic and Avatar—expressed interest in bringing it back, there was no doubt that the Terminator would rise again. And as Arnold always says, “I’ll be back.” And he certainly is.
But will this new Terminator film be able to get it right where the last few outings got it so wrong? And at 71, can Arnold still give us chills as the unstoppable killing cyborg? Will he even be the cyborg this time around (rumours have circulated that Arnold may be playing a human in this version)? Only time will tell. We remain optimistic that this film will reinvigorate the beloved franchise once again. But when do we get to see a trailer? While there's no official word on when a trailer for the film will drop, we're betting you can expect one fairly soon given that the film is set to be released later this year.
