First Terminator: Genisys Footage Revealed in Early Teaser
"He is back."
Like the original Terminator film, Terminator: Genisys follows Kyle Reese as he is sent back in time to find Sarah Connor and prevent Skynet from rising. But the reboot diverges from the original in that Sarah Connor has been raised by a Terminator, played by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has been programmed to protect her.
I'm excited for this movie, but I really don't get this whole "teaser for the trailer" trend. Isn't the point of the trailer to tease the movie? Do we really need teasers for our teasers now?
That said, the footage looks pretty cool. As one Collider commenter said regarding trailer teasers: "I think they are dumb as hell... then I watched it anyway. That's the problem right there."
Terminator: Genisys also stars Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, and Doctor Who's Matt Smith in an unnamed role. The first full trailer comes out tomorrow, and the movie will be released on July 1, 2015.
