With the Terminator franchise getting a hard reboot, we’ve been eagerly awaiting for an official name to come out for the film and today we might just have that for you. Ever since we found out that there would be new films at the hands of Alan Taylor (‘Thor: The Dark World’) with an almost ‘Batman Begins’ feel type reboot, we were expecting something dark and gritty. Recently we found out that he’s not just taking a page out of the DC Universe, but apparently he’ll be borrowing from the Marvel Universe as well with a new television show in the style of ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’. The TV series is “said to follow a critical moment from the first “Terminator” film — where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming television show will take that same moment in a completely different direction.”.
So what can we expect name wise? While Paramount nor Annapurna haven’t officially confirmed or denied the name at this point, Production Weekly has announced what the title will be and they have a very solid track record when it comes to official film and television titles:

So if this is correct, the next Terminator film will be titled: ‘Terminator: Genesis’. As genesis literally means “the origin or mode of formation of something”, it’s a bit of a fitting name considering it is set to reboot the franchise and give us a fresh start. It’ll clearly have to be a new take on the origin for it to be a full on reboot of the timeline.
The film is set to have Arnold Schwarzenegger back in some capacity and has long said to have Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson (‘Seal Team 666‘, ‘G.I. Joe: Retaliation’) attached. Emilia Clarke (‘Game of Thrones‘) is one of the lead candidates for Sarah Connor while Garrett Hedlund (‘TRON: Legacy’) is one of the lead names up for John Conner.
So ‘Terminator’ fans, what do you think of the name? Is it fitting for a restart or is it too much on what we already know that we’re getting a new take on the series?
