“Terminator” fans, brace yourselves for the next installment to the “Terminator” series. The trailer for the “Terminator: Genisys” has been released, giving its fans a taste of the next robotic killers.
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns as T-800 in the “Terminator: Genisys,” but here, we see his role as an older T-800, who time-travels to the past and confronts his younger self from the franchise’s 1984 movie. This is Schwarzenegger’s fourth time playing the role of T-800. While many fans loved him for the role he has played in the franchise, others have commented on how they should have let the Terminator rest in peace.
The movie features Emilia Clarke, who was popularly known as Daenerys Targaryen in “Game of Thrones,” as Sarah Connor and Jai Courtney (Eric in “Divergent” and Charlie in “Jack Reacher”) as Kyle Reese.
“Terminator: Genisys” isn’t a continuation or a sequel to the previous “Terminator” franchise, but rather a change in the timeline of the story. A change that can possibly reset the entire universe, which is what might explain the line said by John Connor (Jason Clarke) in the beginning of the trailer, “We die tonight, mankind dies with us.”
The trailer then follows with Kyle Reese being sent back in time to save John’s mother, Sarah Connor, whom he describes as “sacred and weak.” Upon Kyle’s “arrival” to the past, a robotic police spots him and is sent out to kill him. Reese is saved by Sarah Connor, wherein Clarke drops the line, “Come with me if you want to live.” Then enters the aged T-800 who says, “I’ve been waiting for you,” to his younger self.
The trailer was posted on the British “Terminator: Genisys” Facebook page, hours before the scheduled release on the movie’s official website. On Dec. 2, 2014, the movie’s motion poster was released. The poster features the Terminator skull that seems to be falling apart and resembles that of an hourglass. Is time ticking for someone in the movie? Could it be the end of the world or is it the end of the robots?
The movie is directed by Alan Taylor. “Terminator: Genisys” is set to hit the theaters on July 1, 2015 in IMAX and 3D.
