He never lied. Terminator is back, complete with a new cast (minus Arnie returning). Taking a page from X-Men: Days of Future Past, they’re sending someone back in time to change the future, which doesn’t go as planned and results in another future instead. Crazy? Because it is.
Time travel. Killer robots. Matt Smith. Is this just another Doctor Who episode?
What I’m getting with this trailer is some timey-wimey stuff and lots of action. Watch the trailer and tell us if you’re excited or not. Is anyone else getting a Terminator 2 vibe? That shiny liquid metal Terminator looks a lot like a young version of Robert Patrick.
The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.
Terminator: Genesis – Is being directed by Alan Taylor (“Thor: The Dark World” & “Game of Thrones”), based off of a screenplay by Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis. The films stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as an older Terminator, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese. The cast also includes: J.K. Simmons (“Spider-Man”), Dayo Okeniyi (“Hunger Games”), Byung Hun Lee (“G.I. Joe: Retaliation”) and Matt Smith (“Dr. Who”). It will land in theaters July 1, 2015 release.
