Any children of the 80s and 90s definitely have some pretty great memories of the Terminator franchise.

Pacific Western

Directed by James Cameron and starring a still relatively-unknown Arnold Schwarzenegger, 1984's The Terminator was a smash-hit that introduced us to Sarah Connor's war against the machines and their attempts to send terrifying robots back in time to kill her and her unborn son, John.

The movie combined action, science fiction, and horror into a package that was equal parts tense and badass. Linda Hamilton went from terrified a victim to an awesome heroine, taking on the nearly unstoppable T-800 Terminator robot played by the future Governor.

The Terminator was such a huge hit that it spawned a franchise, leading to 4 sequel movies, a TV series, dozens of comic books, toys, video games, and tons of parodies.

However, for the most part, the original people behind the success of this massive franchise haven't been involved with it for some time. James Cameron left the franchise after 1991's hit sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and Arnold Schwarzenegger was missing for 2009's Terminator Salvation due to his term as the Governor of California.


While the Brawny Man did return to the franchise with 2015's Terminator Genisys, the movie was both a critical and financial flop (as was Salvation), leading to widespread complaints from fans that Paramount was mishandling their franchise, and had been for some time.


Well it looks like those voices were heard, because in 2018, both Cameron and Schwarzenegger will be coming back for a brand new Terminator film!

'Top Gun' Sequel Gets A Release Date And A Title And We're On The Highway To The Danger Zone

Tom Cruise was easily the definitive star of the 80s and 90s. He had a lot of huge hits, but few were as amazing and iconic as Top Gun. Watching them fly their planes and play beach volleyball was super entertaining, and because it's 2018, of course they are planning to bring it back in some way. Nothing is safe from a reboot, remake or sequel, especially if Tom Cruise has a say. The Mission Impossible franchise is on its sixth movie now, with Cruise happily performing his own stunts and continuing to defy danger, but apparently that's not enough.


You Can Live In The '10 Things I Hate About You' House And It's Actually Amazing

We all remember watching 10 Things I Hate About You in the late 90s and becoming completely obsessed with Kat Statford's rebel style, or Bianca's collection of cute sundresses. The Stratford sisters were iconic for us, and we can all admit that part of the reason was their absolutely epic house. So many moments in that movie took place in that home, and it just felt like the most iconic and idyllic place for this story to unfold. I don't know how many times I thought that it would be comfortable to sit on the porch of my house and


Edward Furlong Was A Rising Star, But His Life Took A Drastic Turn That's Left Him Unrecognizable

The former teen idol had roles in iconic movies like Terminator 2: Judgement Day, American Heart, and Pet Sematary, but now Edward Furlong's name is barely remembered. The forgotten actor was on the road to becoming a huge star, with an enormous career ahead of him, but what happened to derail such a successful career?He was first discovered in the early 90s, when he was cast as John Connor in Terminator 2: Judgement Day. He truly stole the show and held his own against Arnold, and managed to nab a few awards for being a breakthrough actor. TriStar PicturesThe


The Preview For The New 'Grinch' Movie Is Out And We Can't Decide How Angry To Be

Listen, I get it, remakes are easy money. You've got a built-in audience who will try to support it no matter what, but there comes a time when enough is enough right? Sure, the Jim Carrey version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas was already a remake of the original cartoon that we all grew up with, but then we had both. One perfect cartoon that gave us the exact telling of the book, and then one amazingly hilarious live-action version that expands the world we already loved. That was enough though. One of each. Live-action, perfect. Cartoon, classic. That's
