Default Terminator: Dark Fate

Ya, Cameron said the other Terminators stunk. This picks up after T2:

This does look better than the last couple... As far as James Cameron's opinion, he was "a fanboy" of Genisys(sp?). Or at least he was paid to say he was which is probably worse than actually being a fanboy.

He lost the rights to Terminator after T2. He owns the rights again. I suspect he sold it to help keep interest in it until he got the rights back.

He sold the rights to keep interest in the franchise until he could get the rights?

Even though I'm into the terminator series, I'll wait for this one to come on the SciFi channel a few months after it comes out...

I'll likely catch it in a matinee. I've liked the series except for maybe the third one.

T2 was the best of the Terminator series....T1 as antiquated as it was with the limited FX of the day...is a close 2nd. All the ones after T2 sucked.

There was a time when James Cameron, who now has both "Titanic" and "Aliens" to his name, was an unknown Canadian director.
" Pirahna Part Two: The Spawning" was the only film credit to his name.

Because he wasn't an established name, nobody trusted him to direct "The Terminator," a crazy time travel story involving robots that he literally dreamed up.

In order to bring his own idea to life, Cameron had to sell the rights to it for an incredibly low amount of money.

Cameron told the Toronto Sun back in 2009, he sold the rights to the original film for $1 to producer Gale Anne Hurd. The stipulation of this agreement was that Cameron would be allowed to direct "The Terminator."


"The Terminator" went on to make $78.4 million worldwide on a reported $6.4 million budget and launch a TV series and four sequels. The most recent sequel, " Terminator Genisys," opens on July 1.
Cameron isn't doing too badly right now, but he still deeply regrets this decision.

"I wish I hadn't sold the rights for one dollar," Cameron told the Toronto Sun. "If I had a little time machine and I could only send back something the length of a tweet, it'd be 'Don't sell.' "

Since the release of "The Terminator" in 1984, the franchise has grossed a total of $1.4 billion worldwide.

Cameron's decision also had major consequences on the future of the franchise. Because Cameron didn't own the rights, they bounced around from company to company over the years. A new trilogy, starting with "Genisys" was launched in a hurry.

However, James Cameron gets the "Terminator" rights back in 2019.

It has been 24 years since "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," but fans could see Cameron's fingerprints on the beloved franchise again very soon.
