Speculation behind the new developments in The Terminator series are all over the internet at the moment. There’s the announcement of Emilia Clarke winning the role of Sarah Conner in the next film garnering excitement and word that a television series will act as a tie-in to this new reboot of the classic science fiction franchise.
But will this keep the franchise afloat or are there calmer waters ahead. We’ve seen a semi-reboot work in the past, most recently with The Dark Knight and X-Men franchises. We’ve also seen just how bad things can go off the rails with Prometheus and the Alien franchise.
So I thought it would be helpful to look at some of the good and bad aspects of this new direction for the Terminator franchise. Is it possible to save it or should we leave it dead and buried?
