The sixth Terminator flick actually moves up two weeks on the calendar as it had previously been set for a November 15, 2019 release, so Paramount must be feeling pretty good about Tim Miller's take on the material.
The world will have to wait a while longer for the Wonder Woman sequel, which will now arrive in cinemas in mid-2020.
"Wonder Woman" was the highest-grossing film of summer 2017. The shuffle comes as Warner Brothers dropped Mark Wahlberg's Six Billion Dollar Man from their slate (that beleaguered film was acquired last year in the Weinstein fire sale and has been stuck in development hell for like twenty years). The follow-up, which is shooting now, had been scheduled to open November 1, 2019.More news: $1.6 billion Mega Millions jackpot drawing on Tuesday

This image released by Warner Bros. Elizabeth Banks' Charlie's Angels reboot moved on the date as well, and the two films will now compete on the same opening weekend.
Deadline also mentions that this release date brings the franchise full circle, since the original Charlie's Angels movie also opened in the first weekend in November back in 2000.
Robin Wright and Connie Nielsen will reprise their roles, while Kristen Wiig joins the cast as supervillain Cheetah. The currently-untitled Terminator 6 from Paramount Pictures has filled the vacancy some 24 hours after Wonder Woman left it. In the meantime, feel free to make dumb jokes about where Wonder Woman 2 to 1983 went, or that it should be called "Wonder Woman 2020" now or some corny shit like that.
