Good old fashioned sci-fi adventure, with nanites. Come with us if you want to live.
The entire Terminator story line gets turned on its head in this newest trailer for Terminator Genesys, in which John Conner is revealed to be more than man, more than machine, and all creepy super-powered pain in the backside. He’s supposed to be humanity’s salvation, but that was all set up before he was transformed into something almost beyond comprehension – and definitely not human.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is back in the title role, and looks surprisingly good despite being 67 years old. The role of Sarah Conner is filled by Emilia Clarke. John Conner as an adult is played by Jason Clarke, and the man sent back to our time to help head off the future event called “Judgement Day”. A surprise on the cast list is Matt Smith, who plays a supporting role IMDB identifies only as “Tim”.
The Terminator movies got gradually worse as they went on, but this looks like a return to the good, solid sci-fi thriller format that made the original Terminator such a hit.
Terminator Genisys comes out from Paramount Pictures in the U.S. on July 1, 2015.
