Paramount Dates ‘Terminator’ for Fourth of July Weekend 2015

Reef Entertainment secures rights to make

Studio also officially names its fourth 'Transformers' film, 'Age of Extinction'

Paramount looks to get a jump start on a crowded 2015 Fourth of July weekend, launching its “Terminator” reboot on Wednesday, July 1.

The studio also officially announced on Monday the rumored title for Michael Bay’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which bows June 27, 2014.

The “Terminator” film, a Skydance co-production, will bow two days ahead of two other studio tentpoles — Sony’s “Independence Day 2” and an untitled toon from Universal and Illumination Entertainment.

Summer 2015 has been shaping up to be one of the most competitive summers ever at the box office, with major franchise installments, including Disney-Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” Sony’s “Smurfs 3,” U’s “Jurassic World” and the Batman-Superman mash-up from Warner Bros.

This year, Par bumped up its limited release of Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska” from Nov. 22 to Nov. 15. The studio will platform the film during the fall, looking to hook awards nominations.

    I love the Terminator series but I still don’t think I will go see the reboot. Does it need a reboot? I am so sick of all this Hollywood commercial crap with all the reboots. Without Cameron it will suck anyway.

  2. Brad says:

    Avengers 2, Superman vs. Batman, Jurassic World, Terminator 5 … Smurfs 3? One of these is not like the others, Variety. The 2nd Smurfs didn’t even crack $70m domestically. Major critical and commercial dud. No reason to expect the 3rd to be any different.

  3. JOE S HILL says:

    If Paramount is smart,they’d do the Frachise serious justice,by bringing back producer-director James
    Cameron,so he could whip-up this series back to its truer roots-it would guaranty very serious and
    satisfactory results,way better then what anybody else has recently tried in the past,like 2003’s
    T3-RISE OF THE MACHINES,,which just stank,big time!!
