1. Arnold Schwarzenegger 'done' with 'Terminator' as he trashes recent sequels

Hasta la vista, baby. Arnold Schwarzenegger told The Hollywood Reporter he is "done" with the "Terminator" franchise, even though the series itself is "not done." On his way out the door, he trashed the most recent two installments, which he starred in. "Five ['Genisys'] and six ['Dark Fate'] didn't close the deal as far as I'm concerned," Schwarzenegger admitted. "We knew that ahead of time because they were just not well written." The series' most recent film, "Dark Fate," was a box office bomb in 2019. So Schwarzenegger said he "got the message loud and clear that the world wants to move on with a different theme when it comes to 'The Terminator.'" He also revealed a planned sequel to "Twins" called "Triplets" has been canceled because director Ivan Reitman's son, Jason Reitman, "f--ked it up" and stopped the project after his father died. So whether it's "Terminator" or it's "Twins," he won't be back.
