The always-quotable line from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s character in The Terminator is, of course, “I’ll be back.” And the franchise is coming back — it’s being rebooted by the director of the first two films, Oscar-winner James Cameron. The new film, scheduled for release in 2019, is being described as a sequel to T2: Judgment Day, and will reunite Cameron, Schwarzenegger, and Linda Hamilton for the first time since that movie. While there have been a few other Terminator movies since T2, they never lived up to the standard set by the first two, so fans are excited to see Cameron and the original stars working together again. Schwarzenegger believes there’s still a huge market for the franchise, and he thinks it has a lot to do with his character’s unique place in movie history.

Even with an extended break from acting thanks to his political career, Arnold Schwarzenegger has made an indelible mark on cinema. Though my personal Schwarzenegger favorite is the twist driven Total Recall, most movie buffs cite Terminator 2: Judgment Day as his finest work. Director James Cameron has overseen the film’s 3D conversion,and now Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D hits AMC Theatres starting August 25.
We’ve interviewed Schwarzenegger numerous times over the years and he has always been more than happy to talk about the Terminator franchise. Even though Terminator: Genisys didn’t set the world on fire in the U.S. (it didn’t break the $100 million mark), it still made over $350 million internationally.
