Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back in a very big way this summer. Paramount Pictures announced today that the sequel/reboot/sequeboot Terminator: Genisys will be released in IMAX 3D this summer in addition to traditional theaters, ensuring that the film will be available to fans on the large-format screens. This isn’t a huge surprise given that most studio blockbusters get IMAX upgrades nowadays, but I will be curious to see how long the engagement lasts—Marvel’s Ant-Man opens just two weeks later, and I imagine the folks at Disney/Marvel Studios will want to get their tiny new superhero into IMAX theaters as well.

terminator-genysis-title-twitterLike many, I’m pretty meh on Terminator: Genisys. There’s nothing about the film that looks too terrible, it just feels unnecessary. We’ve seen from the trailers that the movie will be retreading territory from The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day before unveiling its own, changed world of 1984, inhabited by an already strong and Cyberdyne-savvy Sarah Connor (played by Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke).

Maybe Paramount and director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) will surprise us with something fun and inventive, but thus far I haven’t really gotten that vibe from any of the marketing.
