'Terminator: Genisys' Reveals Familiar Faces

'Terminator: Genisys' Reveals Familiar Faces

We've got our first look at Terminator: Genisys and it's intriguing. The new film features Jason Clarke from Rise of the Planet of the Apes as John Connor, Emilia Clarke of Game of Thrones as Sarah Connor, Matt Smith of Doctor Who as an unnamed compatriot of John Connor, and Jai Courtney of A Good Day to Die Hard as Kyle Reese. Just with the cast it's already more intriguing than the 2009 McG-directed dud Terminator: Salvation since it doesn't seem to rely on one big name actor to carry the film.

The real issue will be the plot twists that will make Genisys the start of a new, fresh franchise as opposed to a rehash. The reason, I believe, that Salvation was such a disaster at the box office was due to the bland, uninteresting story. It didn't attempt to do anything new or interesting with the story, going as far as to opt-out of a mythos-bending ending for a safer option.

Twist No. 1? 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.

I wasn't excited for the new Terminator film because of the ridiculous name and since it was a light reboot. However, the more that I've read, the more excited I am to see how the film continues to shape up. Anything is better than Salvation even if it did lead to the creation of one of most insane on-set meltdowns of all time, even if the released pictures look like total trash.
