Grab Some Advil, Arnold Schwarzenegger “Explains” New ‘Terminator’ Timeline

It’s Wednesday. Hump day. The weekend is closer, maybe you’re in a better mood than you were Monday. Well, here’s more news on the new and improved and totally unnecessary Terminator movie to give you a migraine and ruin your afternoon.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will be back as the T-800 in this new James Cameron-produced, Tim Miller-directed Terminator rebootimaginmake, spoke to Business Insider about the timeline. Not that literally anyone cares bout how the timeline will fit in with the other half dozen or so films, but here’s what Arnie had to say:

“It’s hard to come up with new ideas when you stay within that framework… I think [James] Cameron and Tim [Miller] came up with a concept where they can continue on with the T-800 but make a whole new movie… What they are doing now with this one is basically to just take a few very basic characters, like Linda Hamilton’s character and my character, and dismiss everything else. Just move away from all these rules of the timeline and other characters.”

Great, they’re ignoring everything. This should definitely make the movie feel like it has a point for existing and not like a soulless attempt to cash in on a dying brand.

This new Terminator movie will try and kickstart a new trilogy. Just like Terminator: Genisys tried and failed to do. That should give James Cameron plenty to do in between making his 346 Avatar sequels into oblivion.

Terminator Redux will hit theaters July 26, 2019, so you have time to mentally prepare.
