Arnold Schwarzenegger returns in the first trailer for Terminator Genisys
When TERMINATOR SALVATION was announced, everyone was nervous about McG taking control of the franchise and the results were uninspired. We thought the series might die there, but with Arnold Schwarzenegger back in the game and every studio dying for a franchise, so it makes sense Terminator would get the reboot treatment. But instead of a true reboot, they’re going down the X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST path by incorporating the time travel to try and erase T3 and Salvation from people’s memories. The first trailer for the film can be seen below and it doesn’t give me goosebumps or anything, but it is nice to see Schwarzenegger back in his most famous role. We’ll have to wait and see if director Alan Taylor can revive this franchise.
For some reason, Paramount hasn’t released the official plot synopsis, but we do know that it will revolve around two timelines. The first will feature John Connor in the future leading the resistance and the second will see a young Sarah Connor and her “pops”, an original T-1000. TERMINATOR GENISYS stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-Hun Lee and JK Simmons. The Alan Taylor directed film hits theaters on July 1st, 2015.
