Terminator: Genisys is still 10 months away, but Paramount already has release dates for its two sequels. The studio today slated Terminator 2 for May 19, 2017, and Terminator 3 will follow on June 29, 2018. The first sequel has the date to itself, but it arrives two weeks after one of those Mystery Marvel Movies and a week ahead of Warner Bros’ The Lego Movie 2. Part 3 of the new cyborg showdown will be up against an untitled Fox/DreamWorks Animation/Blue Sky pic and arrives a week before another Marvel flick. The Terminator reboot from Paramount and Skydance is set for a July 1, 2015 bow.
Thinking far less ahead, the studio today also scheduled an Oscar-qualifying run for The Gambler, starring Mark Wahlberg and Jessica Lange. Directed by Rupert Wyatt directed and scripted by William Monahan, the remake of the 1974 James Caan film is getting a limited release December 19 and a January 1 expansion. And no, it has nothing to do with Kenny Rogers.
