He is back. Paramount released the first trailer for "Terminator Genisys" (real title) on Thursday, following two days of teases. The new film stars Jai Courtney (as Kyle Reese), Jason Clarke (as John Connor), Emilia Clarke (as Sarah Connor) and Arnold Schwarzenegger as T-800. The trailer also shows a glimpse of T-1000 (or what looks like a T-1000) and features the famed "Terminator" theme.
The new film twists the "Terminator" story fans have come to love. From an Entertainment Weekly piece on the film in October:
Twist No. 1? Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she's been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger's Terminator -- an older T-800 she calls "Pops" -- who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.
Needless to say, not everyone was pleased with that tweak. "Terminator Genisys" is out on July 1, 2015.
