Terminator: Dark Fate director says the franchise has been “tainted”

Tim Miller, the director of Terminator: Dark Fate, says that the franchise has been “tainted” in recent years.

It’s fair to say that the reputation of the Terminator franchise has gone down with recent entries into the franchise. Terminator 2: Judgment Day was certainly the pinnacle of the series and that seems like an awfully long time ago now.

The franchise is having another crack at things with Tim Miller’s Terminator: Dark Fate but the director admits that the brand has been tainted. Speaking to TotalFilm, he said:

“I think the brand has been tainted a little bit. I don’t want to disparage the work of any of those movies, and some of them were interesting, but I feel like they just played in the world of The Terminator – it was essentially a different thing. T2 was just one of those events that was a fucking revelation.

Terminator: Dark Fate Director Feels the Brand Has Become Tainted
Terminator: Dark Fate director Tim Miller says that the franchise has been "tainted" by the previous sequels in the series, acknowledging the pressure and high expectations he's been given by taking on the project. Miller opened up about what it was like coming on board the anticipated sequel, admitting even he would have some reservations about seeing a sixth movie if he weren't directly involved. Describing the other sequels past Terminator 2: Judgment Day as "misfires," Miller suggests the other movies had drifted too far away from what made T2 as special as it was.

"I think the brand has been tainted a little bit. I don't want to disparage the work of any of those movies, and some of them were interesting, but I feel like they just played in the world of The Terminator - it was essentially a different thing.

Tom Holland Goes Emo in Amazing Spider-Man 3 Deepfake Video
Tom Holland has every reason to feel a bit "emo" following Spider-Man's departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so perhaps the newest deepfake video to hit the web is quite appropriate. Those of us who remember watching Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 can never forget the infamous scenes of Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) going through an apparent dark phase when the Venom symbiote begins taking control of his body and mind. Because of his new attitude, hairstyle, and black clothing, this version of Parker as been constantly referred to as "emo Spider-Man" by fans. It has been used in countless memes for many years, but a new deepfake video with Holland replacing Maguire is certainly the most entertaining take on it yet.

Over five minutes of footage is used to really give viewers an idea of how it would be to see Tom Holland in the previous Spidey movie. In the video,

Can shifting to a female-focused future overcome Terminator: Dark Fate's bad buzz?

After a string of sequels that have failed to hit the mark, James Cameron may be turning to strong women to rescue the franchise. Will it work?

The pages of Hollywood history are littered with failed attempts to propel movies towards box office and critical success. To pinpoint the basic construct of a film that is likely to appeal to audiences and critics alike is a virtually impossible task. Just ask the Disney executives who chose to remove the “of Mars” suffix from the big-budget 2012 adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic planetary romance novel John Carter of Mars, (ostensibly because previous movies mentioning the red planet had bombed), only to see a perfectly decent fantasy flick lose more than $200m at the box office. Or the executives who felt Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece, Blade Runner, was so confusing that it needed a tacked-on happy ending and Harrison Ford voiceover

James Cameron’s Reaction To ‘Avatar’ Losing Box Office Crown: Relief

  • Deadline
James Cameron’s Reaction To ‘Avatar’ Losing Box Office Crown: Relief
Exclusive: When Avengers: Endgame surpassed Avatar to claim the title of the highest-grossing film in history, it ended one of the most impressive reigns in the annals of screen entertainment: James Cameron, first with Titanic (1997) and then with Avatar (2009), had owned the top spot on the all-time chart for a staggering 7,817 consecutive days — just shy of 21 1/2 years.

Cameron was busy in New Zealand working on the sequels to Avatar in late July when Avengers: Endgame (Disney/Marvel Studios) finally eclipsed the original Avatar (Fox) and its $2.79 billion benchmark. Was the ultra-competitive Cameron dejected or sour when he heard the news? Far from it, he says, his first reaction was actually relief and optimism.

“It gives me a lot of hope,” Cameron told Deadline. “Avengers: Endgame is demonstrable proof that people will still go to movie theaters. The thing that scared me most about making Avatar 2 and Avatar 3 was

Terminator: Dark Fate Tracking for Soft Debut, Will Fare Better Than Genisys
The early box office predictions for Terminator: Dark Fate are in. The long-awaited sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day hits theaters on November 1st and everybody is curious to see how it will perform at the box office. Ever since the release of Judgment Day, the franchise has seen lower and lower box office debuts, matched with negative critical and fan responses. With that being said, the sequel pretends the last three installments never happened and brings back Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, and James Cameron.

It's looking like Terminator: Dark Fate will have a bit of a soft box office opening when it hits theaters in a few weeks. Initial domestic box office tracking has the debut weekend coming in with $35 - $45 million. This isn't a terrible number by any means, but it does mean that the international numbers are going to have to be even bigger to get up to the sequel's massive budget.

Is there any life left in the Terminator franchise?

Tom Jolliffe looks at Terminator: Dark Fate and the prospect of further films…

James Cameron approaches most of his projects with a certain confident swagger. He is the King of the world after all. When he left the Terminator franchise, with Arnold Schwarzenegger being slowly lowered into cyborg retirement he’d left behind two genre defining classics. The first film a relentless and wonderfully orchestrated B movie monster horror-come-action film that took the historically goofy (the kind of thing you could imagine Ed Wood producing decades previously) and made something chilling. In much the same way as Ridley Scott gave us the brilliantly confined space terror of Alien and took a potentially goofy idea, injecting it with pure nightmare.

By Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Cameron was no longer a freewheeling, low budget maverick, he was big league. The film was mega budget and forgoes much of the horror of the original,

James Cameron talks Terminator: Dark Fate, trilogy plans, and avoiding the mistakes of Terminator Genisys

After Paramount and Skydance Productions’ to reboot Terminator fell apart with the poorly-received Terminator Genisys, the studios turned to original series creator James Cameron to push the reset button on the franchise with Terminator: Dark Fate, a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day which Cameron is producing alongside director Tim Miller (Deadpool).

Speaking to Deadline, Cameron revealed how became involved with Dark Fate, and how he, Miller and Skydance’s David Ellison worked together to map out plans for a trilogy of films – one that would hopefully avoid the mistakes of the latter sequels in the series.

“[Ellison] was quite honest with me about this – [Genisys] fell short of the mark and didn’t really do what he had wanted it to do,” said Cameron. “So he said, ‘Let’s start with a blank slate and take it back to Terminator 2.’ And that idea was intriguing. We spent several weeks breaking

Terminator: Dark Fate Rumored to Get New Guns N' Roses Song
Terminator: Dark Fate might contain some brand-new music from the recently reunited Guns N' Roses. According to sources close to the sequel, original Gnr members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan were invited to a private screening to see if they could repeat the magic of 1991. The band's hit song "You Could Be Mine" was handpicked by Arnold Schwarzenegger for Terminator 2: Judgment Day and the song helped propel the movie, along with their upcoming Use Your Illusion records.

According to sources, the members of Guns N' Roses screened the movie and then went right to work on finishing a song, which is currently untitled. "Slash was at Axl's house to record overdubs on a song for the rush release," says the source close to the Terminator: Dark Fate production. It appears that the song will be rush-released to coincide with the premiere of the movie on November 1st. This

10 Things From Terminator 2: Judgment Day That Haven't Aged Well

When it comes to action movie sequels, nothing can beat Terminator 2: Judgment Day. James Cameron’s relentless action movie that would go on to define Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career was already great, but his follow-up somehow managed to surpass it. Today, Judgment Day or T2 to some is still revered as a classic in both the Action and Science-Fiction genres.

Released in 1991 but made in the tail end of ‘80s culture, it shouldn’t be too surprising that some parts of Judgment Day didn’t get better with time. This doesn’t make the first Terminator sequel bad by any standard, but it does show how much of a product of its time that even a timeless action movie can be. Here are 10 things from Terminator 2: Judgment Day that didn’t age well.
