The first trailer for Terminator: Genisys has been released.
This is the 5th entry in the popular franchise created by James Cameron. Directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) Terminator: Genisys features the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as The Terminator/T-800, Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as John Connor, Jai Courtney (Divergent) as Kyle Reese, Dayo Okeniyi as Danny Dyson, and Lee Byung-hun as the morphing T-1000. J.K. Simmons and Matt Smith (Doctor Who) also star. The film will be released July 1, 2015.
The tagline for the film is “Reset the Future,” obviously referring to the fact the film is a sequel to the original film and also as a reboot, which will start a new trilogy of Terminator films.
Here’s the film’s synopsis, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly:
The year is 2029. John Connor, leader of the resistance continues the war against the machines. At the Los Angeles offensive, John’s fears of the unknown future begin to emerge when TECOM spies reveal a new plot by SkyNet that will attack him from both fronts; past and future, and will ultimately change warfare forever.
On the verge of winning the war against Skynet, Connor sends his trusted lieutenant Kyle Reese back through time to save his mother’s life and ensure his own existence. But what he finds on the other side is like nothing he ever expected. After being orphaned at age 9 by a Terminator, Sarah Connor has since been brought up by another Terminator, played by Schwarzenegger, programmed to protect her. This Terminator has then trained her to face her destiny, which she adamantly tries to reject.
