Paramount Pictures has announced they have decided to place their the new Terminator film in the Wonder Woman sequel’s old spot in early November.
It was officially announced that Wonder Woman 1984 would be leaving their original November 1st, 2019 spot for June 5th, 2020. A move most likely to give the sequel more time to gain box office earnings over a summer rather than during the fall.
Super excited to announce that, thanks to the changing landscape, we are able to put Wonder Woman back to its rightful home. June 5, 2020. Be there or be square!!!

Tim Miller’s Terminator film has now pounced on the release date, bumping it’s release from November 22nd to November 1st. The film is rumored to have a massive budget of $255 million according to a cast member, so they’ll need a strategic release date.
It’s not a terrible idea to takeover the WW84 release spot, as the film is expected to be female-driven story and the first official still from Terminator focused on it’s female leads.
Terminator will be a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day and will ignore the other three films, a bulk of the film will seemingly take place in Mexico (Spain doubled for the country) other details are scarce at the moment.
Sony’s Charlie’s Angels is also set to take a chance on the release date.
