For those who know me I’m perhaps the biggest Arnold Schwarzenegger fan around and have seen just about every one of his movies. I quote his movies daily with friends and family and pretty much idolize his ascension in the bodybuilding world as well as movies and politics. Success runs synonymous with the name Arnold Schwarzenegger!
Now that his career in politics appears to be over he can focus on what made him a house hold name, movies! Many rumors have been swirling about that Arnold is planning on reprising his role in several movies which he does not do too often sans a few such as Terminator 2, Terminator 3, The Expendables and Conan. However the rumors that I mentioned look to have him reprising his role again in Terminator 5, another Conan, a possible True Lies sequel and recently announced TWINS sequel called Triplets.
I can honestly say that I am more than thrilled to hear the news of these sequels, especially True Lies and Conan. The Triplets movie is not really something I’m too interested in since I was not thrilled with the first one anyways.
Terminator does not surprise me since he sort of made a digital cameo in T4 as the Cyberdyne Systems Model 101 or T-800 so its only natural to assume he will have some sort of appearance in Terminator 5, perhaps as a real person who the terminator is based off of, that would be interesting.
True Lies 2 has been talked about as soon as the first was released back in 1994. James Cameron, the director of True Lies, has expressed disinterest in sequels earlier in his career but according to recent news his focus lies with 2 sequels to Avatar. Afterwards he plans on devoting time to True Lies and possibly a Terminator sequel, which will be both highly anticipated and definite box office successes.
The movie that we are most likely to see first aside from Triplets (I’m on the fence about it) is a third Conan movie. The synopsis could be about an aging Conan who is now King and is at the end of his reign. He wants to go all out in one last battle, for glory! I think the idea is great and do like the idea of an older Conan reigning supreme and having an itch for one last battle. I guess you can say its similar to the last Rocky Balboa film that shows Rocky not 100% satisfied with his boxing career and needs one last final/farewell fight to close the book on his life. I see this as a success or maybe I’m being biased, either way I think Conan still has some life left.
I hope Arnold continues making movies well into his 70’s. He can still be a top box office action hero as long as it remains believable. I will remain his biggest fan even when he is long gone. There is no one like Arnold Schwarzenegger.
