As for this film: Meh. What could T5 and T6 possibly cover that the existing films haven't?

There's not gonna be yet more time travel, is there? If this keeps up, I am sticking to my hope that the timelines featuring Skynet, whose entire existence depends on time travel, will collapse in on themselves and the only possible outcome will be a Future Coda-like timeline in which Skynet never existed.
Oh yeah, the T2 deleted scene that SHOULD have ended that movie.

And the franchise.

I've often thought this would be a great scenario for a True Lies sequel. I would totally go see it. They'd have to bring Tom Arnold and Grant Heslov on board to make it complete though.

The most obvious route is to do a more or less straight sequel to Salvation, but the movie would have to be damn good to overcome audience apathy toward revisiting the post-apocalyptic landscape that just isn't all that suited to sustaining a full movie.
Yeah, nobody can relate to that future, especially when the characters weren't even all that engaging. It's best to leave the future as brief scenes like in T1, while relating to people in the present.

Right there, that's why the obvious route is a reboot or some more time travel. And if that weren't enough, you'd think they might take a formulaic approach by looking at other franchises that rebooted when they were in the shitter. Star Trek and Batman are two pretty good examples of success.

If all they do is continue where Salvation left off, they're just pissing more in that soup.

Wow. I always thought I was the only one thinking this, but it's the obvious sequel isn't it?

Sadly I think T3, Terminator: salvation and Terminator:TSCC has polluted any real chance of anything decent out of the franchise.

I also feel the same way about the Alien and Predator franchises such potential only to be $#!t all over chasing the almighty dollar, let them rest a while then dust them off with something fresh and new.

Yep. With all that practice on Buffy and Dollhouse Eliza should be able to turn True Lies into a nice franchise.

The world needs more True Lies like... uh... er... it just plain doesn't.

But neither of those two franchises were firmly anchored to a certain geopolitical moment or a single iconic star who's permanently aged out of the (original, at least) role.

1 & 2: genius. 3 & 4: meh, ok. But wouldn't mind if they never made another Terminator movie. Wish Arnold well though.

Arnold in a 5th Terminator? That would only work for me if he's a human resistance fighter, battle hardened with lots of scars.

Re: Arnold is on board for Terminator 5 and possibly 6

I actually liked Terminator Salvation but I still can't see how Arnie returning to the franchise could help. I mean we all know he cant be the T-800 again so then what?

I suppose an older resistance fightrer who the T-800 was based off could work as long as CHristian Bale returns as John Connor. The only alternative would be, as proposed already, a really old Terminator(120 years was the life span in T2) hanging around either helping what remained of the human resistance in the 22nd century or helping rebuild after the human victory.

EDIT: Actually if you wanted to go REALLY different we could go with a hard sci fi story about all the ex-Terminators living in human society. We know the they could in theory at least adjust according to the learning Terminators of T2. Maybe Terminators need rights too.
