Not that I have the space for one in my own home these days, but when I was younger, I always wanted a full-size T-800 model Endoskeleton from the Terminator franchise. I was a big fan then and I even played the virtual arcade game as much as I could, but as for my own fascination with it, it wouldn’t go as far as owning my own Terminator.
I found some cool Japanese poster art for director Alan Taylor’s Terminator Genisys via cinematoday on Friday, and there’s no doubting that this film has already fired up a huge conversation about its validity with regard to the essence of the previous films.
The film reboots the franchise for a new trilogy that now puts Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke), taken in and raised from childhood by her accompanying T-800 model Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger), and time traveling soldier Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) on a new mission that cuts right through the first film and pits them against a new cyborg killers, including an advanced model Terminator formulated into the body of John Connor (Jason Clarke), once the leader of the human resistance against Skynet. And something to do with an app. Complicated, I know. Still, I’m inclined to believe the fanbase will show out in July when the film arrives. All I know is after the direction the second trailer took (which I felt was a huge spoiler moment) this movie better have some delightful surprises, especially if it’s aiming for at least two more after this one.
Here’s the Japanese poster below, and check out the most recent TV spot and character posters. Feel free to comment below and let us know your thoughts about how this film will bode for your taste.
The last twelve hours or so have been useful in the latest social media campaign blitz to release the new international trailer for Alan Taylor‘s Terminator Genisys. Incidentally, it’s also been pretty mind-blowing, as the new script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier shows us a different side to the Terminator saga that none of us may have suspected. Like, literally.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is back though, of course, and all smiles as he spearheads this latest new trilogy venture with actress Emilia Clarke, actors Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke and Lee Byung-hun. It’s explosive, spectacular and exciting, but it could also be hugely disappointing for anyone who thought any less since of the surprises that would come since the first teaser trailer.
At any rate, here’s the payoff, with new footage and such. Take a look!
In the meantime, we’ve got ourselves a new TV spot which demands your attention, so take a look below and remember to mark the date for July 1, and say hello to J.K. Simmons while you’re at it!
Today is a great day to be a Terminator fan if you’ve been waiting for the earliest possible teaser for the upcoming trilogy reboot from Paramount Pictures and Skydance. Certainly while many continue to lawd the prospects of remakes, the marketing strategy has thusfar proven nothing short of highly anticipatory, and now, Terminator: Genisys finally gets a full teaser ahead of its summer 2015 release, and just as promised, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back and leading a stellar cast featuring Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney.
