Celebrate freedom from Skynet on Fourth of July weekend as Paramount Pictures has set the new Terminator film for Wednesday, July 1, 2015. While it sounds look a surefire hit, the weekend is a bit crowded.

Paramount also officially announced on Monday the rumored title for Michael Bay’s Transformers: Age of Extinction, which bows June 27, 2014, Variety reports.

The Terminator film 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, Uni’s Jurassic World and the Batman-Superman mash-up from Warner Bros.

    I think it’s unfair to lump Terminator in with those other films hype wise. IMO, the luster and mystique of Terminator died with Rise Of The Machines (not a bad movie, but a BIG step down in quality from Judgment Day), and let’s not forget about the utter shit fest that was Terminator Salvation.

    Don’t get me wrong, I can’t wait to see the new Terminator film, and I plan on going to a midnight showing. But just think about the universal praise for Nolan’s Batman trilogy, and the massive success for The Avengers.

        Oh dear, I forgot about that one! Sorry. And for the record, I have not, nor will I ever watch a Smurfs film. lol.

          I thought Rise of the Machines was the shit fest and Salvation was good.

            That “Talk to the hand!” scene in Rise Of The Machines with Arnie makes me cringe every time I see it. lol. And on top of that, they turned Nick Stahl’s John Connor into a petulant, whining child, totally killing everything the John Connor character stands for.

            In Salvation, I just can’t stand Sam Worthington in the leading role. Man he just bored the crap out of me.
