It’s no secret, the new Terminator movie Genisys has had some problems circling it for some time. And when the first trailer dropped last year, it only intensified that problem for many people. I for one actually enjoyed the trailer, thinking it turned out much better than what I imagined it would from everything I’ve heard. Problems or not, it’s Terminator and what we all want is the return of the franchise we know and love. Check out some new images of Genisys below.
Thanks to Empire Magazine, we get looks at Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the aged T-800, our first look at J.K. Simmons in his role of Detective O’Brien, and more. Simmons character O’Brien has been described as “a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades (since 1984, which, not coincidentally, is the year the original movie, directed by James Cameron, was released).”
While we wait for the new trailer of Genisys, these new images give us some pretty good looks. The big thing to take away is the image of Arnie & Simmons, showing a glimpse of how his character is involved. Arnie’s aged T-800 looks so awesome, I totally dig the idea of a Terminator aging. And what could I say about Clarke’s Connor? She may not be Linda Hamilton, but from the first trailer she is Sarah Connor. There couldn’t have been a better choice in my mind to bring the character back to the big screen.
Here’s the Terminator: Genisys May issue of Empire Magazine:
Personally, I am pretty damn excited for this movie. I had my doubts before the first trailer, but like I said above, I liked it. I’m looking forward to the new time-traveling storyline, seeing how those new actors are able to take on those big roles, and if this Terminator will in fact be the return to the Terminator we know. Fingers crossed!
