Best known for playing a young Pavel Chekov in the rebooted Star Trek franchise and for roles in films such as Terminator Salvation and Green Room, actor Anton Yelchin died this morning. He was 27.
The cause of Yelchin’s death, according to his representative, was a fatal traffic collision at his San Fernando Valley home. The rep stated, “His family requests you respect their privacy at this time.”
Terminator Genisys hit theaters last week, and while some people greatly disliked the new movie, director James Cameron — who helmed the first two films of the popular franchise — reportedly gave the fifth feature in The Terminator film series his stamp of approval.
With the recent release of Genisys, the folks over at the JoBlo Network have put together a 10-minute video look back at the history of The Terminator film franchise that includes scenes from all five films, as well as plenty of behind-the-scenes footage mainly from the first two installments, focusing on the outstanding special effects. Watch the video here below.

Terminator Salvation: Trial By Fire Mass Market Paperback
By Timothy Zahn
Release Date: August 17, 2010
Have you been wondering what happened after Terminator Salvation? Are you waiting for the next movie? Well stop what your doing and go pick up Terminator Salvation: Trial By Fire. Trial By Fire not only continues the story, but also fills in the gaps and explains things that happened in the movie. All that and it’s written by one of the most prolific Star Wars extended universe authors, Timothy Zahn. If that doesn’t sell you on this book, I don’t know what will.
Without spoiling the book, let me run down the basics of the story for you. There are four stories to follow which are all equally riveting. First you have Kyle Reese fighting to survive in a horrible situation underground. Next you have Blair Williams and Barnes investigating a lead from the recently destroyed Skynet base while trying to mend their respect for each other after Marcus coming between them. Third, you have a new character, Jik, fighting to survive and make it to Baker’s Hollow while being hunted down by Terminators for an unknown reason. Finally there’s the story of Baker’s Hollow and the Prestons, Daniel and Hope and how they have fought to survive as a community after Judgment Day.
