New TERMINATOR: GENISYS Photos with Yelling and Shooting
Yesterday we got our first official look at director Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys thanks to the covers of EW. Today we have five new photos for you to check out. The first is a group shot that features Jason Clarke as John Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, and Matt Smith as an undisclosed soldier character. The other four images below include all the characters yelling and shooting off their weapons. I especially like how Courtney and Clarke aren't even shooting in the direction that they are looking. We still have yet to see an official picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising his iconic role.
There were also some story details released for the film yesterday as well that got a lot of mixed reactions from fans. It seemed to confuse some people. I actually liked the ideas that were presented, and it doesn't hurt that James Cameron helped steer the story in the right direction. Here's the description:
Terminator: Genisys starts 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 (Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (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 (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.
One of the other cool details that I really like is that in this version of the story Sarah Connor was actually raised by a Terminator, an aging T-800 played by Schwarzenegger. This cyborg was programmed to protect her instead of kill her. Cameron previously explained how this is all possible:
"I pointed out that the outer covering (of the Terminator) was actually not synthetic, that it was organic and therefore could age. You could theoretically have a Terminator that was sent back in time, missed his target, and ended up just kind of living on in society. Because he is a learning computer and has a brain as a central processor he could actually become more human as he went along without getting discovered."
Of course, there's a chance that this movie could suck, but there's also a chance that it could be awesome. I'm hoping for the latter.
