The upcoming film, TERMINATOR: GENISYS, is an interesting next step in the world of Skynet and Judgement Day. For the new movie, they’ve turned the story on it’s head and will have Sarah Connor being raised by an aging Terminator played by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Today, EW released a synopsis for the film and some new images featuring Arnold, Emilia Clarke (Sarah Connors), and Matt Smith who has turned over his sonic screwdriver for a kick-ass gun.
The beginning of Terminator: Genisys … is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of postapocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah, from a Terminator programmed to kill her so she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like what he expected.
