While I still don’t agree with calling it “Terminator Genisys” instead of Genesys, it looks alright.
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.
While it looks alright, I somehow don’t feel like erasing Terminator 2 from the timeline is the best course of action, especially because that one is the best Terminator movie so far. I’m all for time traveling movies, but I feel like there’s a lot more to be explored other than messing with the first two movies. To make this sound even worse, this movie will most likely be PG-13 to attract younger audiences, unlike the R-rating of the first two movies, which made them cool for a reason.
I hope for the best and I wish them luck, but seriously, get a move on on the story, we can’t keep depending on Sarah Connor for everything.
Anyway, at least it had a cool video poster, I can’t deny that.
Terminator Genisys is scheduled to be released by Paramount Pictures on July 1, 2015.
