Terminator 6 gets a title
You have to feel for Robert Rodriguez. During the promotional trail for his new film, Alita: Battle Angel, it appears everyone just wants to talk to producer and writer James Cameron about his sequels for Avatar and Terminator. During such conversations, Cameron recently revealed a working title for the upcoming Terminator sequel, which will now to be called Terminator: Dark Fate.
I’m holding my breath on the actual film, but for a title, it’s not half bad. It ties into a key theme of Cameron’s Terminator films “No fate, but what we make” and is infinity better than Genisys.
Terminator: Dark Fate will be released in November 2019. I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a trailer in the near future (no pun intended).
We’ll probably share our thoughts on Alita: Battle Angel in the next Recent Ramble episode.
Jurassic Park gets Fyred
Those of you who are Netflix subscribers have no doubt heard of (and hopefully watched) the Fyre documentary. The film covers the lead-up and ultimate collapse of “an exclusive luxury music festival” in 2017. The film is a gripping documentary and a damning insight into the power of social media influencers – do check it out if you haven’t already.
However, the brilliant people at Nerdist have created a hilarious parody trailer merging the documentary with a little film called Jurassic Park…

Dune cast just gets better
The cast for Denis Villeneuve’s new film just keeps getting better. As you may know, the director is tackling Frank Herbert’s epic sci-fi novel Dune, which has seen a few adaptations over the years. The cast includes (deep breath); Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin and as of this week, Aquaman himself, Jason Momoa.
We’re big fans of Villeneuve as well as big science fiction ideas, so we can’t wait for this. I may even get around to reading the novel, which has been collecting digital dust on my Kindle for around five years!
