New Terminator Genisys Trailer Confirms Those Wacky Plot Rumors, Gives Away Movie's Big Twist
You may recall that a few weeks ago we wrote about some leaked plot details for Terminator Genisys, which were so bonkers it sounded like the movie's scriptwriters had been experimenting with hallucinogens before heading to work. After posting the rumors, sites across the internet were asked by Paramount's lawyers to swiftly take them down, a sure sign that there was at least some semblance of truth to them. Well, a new trailer has been released and it appears to confirm that at least one of those wacky plot details is, in fact, true. 



The plot detail in question was one that referred to John Connor's role in the Genisys. It stated that after years of being held up as a saviour in the Terminator franchise, Connor (played by Jason Clarke) will actually be Terminator Genisys's core villain. As the trailer appears to confirm, the rumor suggested that Connor's body would be taken over by a swarm of nanobots implanted by the machines before he is sent back to the past to take out his mother. This twist is weird enough, but in what can only be described as a continuation of bad choices (which started with the movie's title), the Terminator Genisys team has decided to reveal a major plot detail in an online trailer. 

If this is indeed the movie's big twist, it's hard to see how Terminator Genisys can expect to recover from some seriously iffy initial fan reaction and go on to become a major summer success story. Sure, the Terminator franchise has a legion of devoted fans, but even in those corners the general feeling towards Genisys has been overwhelmingly negative. We'll try not to write this one off just yet, but every new thing we learn about Terminator Genisys is testing the resolve of our love for this franchise more and more.

Terminator Genisys hits theaters on July 1st 2015.
