Paramount Dates ‘Terminator’ for Fourth of July Weekend 2015

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.
