Next summer the world will see the release of TERMINATOR: GENISYS. The movie will mark the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s iconic killing machine T-800. Just over a month ago we learned that two more entries in the franchise are planned for 2017 and 2018.
As far as GENISYS goes, EW went all out for their next issue by offering all types of insight into the upcoming TERMINATOR film. To begin things two different covers of the magazine will be available (see below).
The issue also offers the first official plot details:
"TERMINATOR GENYSIS 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 post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected."
Then more is revealed with Sarah Connor being "raised" by a Terminator since childhood?
"Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger’s Terminator—an older T-800 she calls “Pops”—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion."
“Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” says producer David Ellison. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”
TERMINATOR: GENISYS stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Byung-hun Lee, Matt Smith, Aaron V. Williamson, Dayo Okeniyi and J.K. Simmons.
Look for TERMINATOR: GENISYS in theaters July 1, 2015.
