After a whole lot of speculation surrounding the official title of the fifth instalment of the Terminator franchise, which has thus far gone by Terminator: Genesis, the confusion might finally be put to rest.
As the official website for the movie was just launched, albeit it is very barebones right now but it does feature the press release for the movie, in which the reboot is simply being called, The Terminator (2015).
The move might have been inspired by the fact that the fifth instalment of the iconic sci-fi franchise in someway pays tribute to the 1984 original and is also a fresh start of sorts. Bleeding Cool revealed that the movie might simpl be called The Terminator like the original movie.
Another recent report about the film's promotion at the 2014 Licensing Expo on June 17 also seems to corroborate this fact.On the press release the movie went by simply Terminator. It doesn't seem like a far fetched idea as the movie is also being sold as a reboot, and if the producers are planning to give the new lease of life, it might be apt to go back with no suggestion of a sequel. Images of the T-800 were also revealed from the expo.
In April, rumors surfaced since a picture of the official clapboard from the set was revealed. It read Vista, with directing credits given to Alan Taylor and camera credits to Kramer Morgenthau. The image was posted on Skydance's Facebook page. This had gotten the press speculating about the title, and wondering if Genesis was set to be replaced with Vista.
Terminator 5 is scheduled to release in July 2015.
