Arriving a bit ahead of schedule today, the official full trailer for Terminator: Genisys is here:
According to the tagline of the film, “the rules have changed,” which we see when Kyle Reese returns to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor — except she’s the one protecting him when a liquid metal T-1000 shows up to finish him off.
Played by Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke, the new Sarah Connor is a fearless badass with an aged T-800 in Arnold Schwarzenegger, who takes on his younger model with single shotgun blast, effectively erasing the events of the first film. The new timeline still plays to the plot of previous Terminator films, it seems, but effectively resets the universe in an effort to relaunch the franchise.
We’re excited to see our executive editor take on his ultimate role again. Tell us what you think in the comments.
