‘Terminator’ Sequel Bumped Off Paramount Release Schedule

Studio also sets fall release for George Clooney’s “Suburbicon” and spring 2018 dates for Johnny Knoxville, John Krasinski movies


Paramount removed a sequel to “Terminator: Genisys” from its upcoming film slate while adding release dates to three upcoming projects as part of an announcement Monday.

The sequel, which was listed as “Terminator 3,” had been set for a June 29, 2018 release date. 2015’s “Terminator: Genisys,” a follow-up to 2009’s “Terminator Salvation,” saw the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to his most famous role for the first time since “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” in 2003.

“Genisys” made $440.5 million worldwide against a $155 million budget.

Elsewhere on the slate, Paramount added a 2017 release date for “Suburbicon,” a crime comedy directed by George Clooney and written by the Coen Brothers. The film, which will star Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Oscar Isaac, and Josh Brolin, will be released November 3, serving as an adult alternative to Marvel’s “Thor: Ragnarok,” which will be released that same weekend.

Paramount’s 2018 slate saw the addition of “Action Point,” a comedy by “Jackass” star Johnny Knoxville, and “A Quiet Place,” John Krasinski’s first major studio film as a director that will also see him star alongside his wife, Emily Blunt. “Action Point” will be released March 23, 2018; and “A Quiet Place” will be released April 13, 2018.

Paramount will hold its panel at CinemaCon in Las Vegas tomorrow afternoon.
