Forget everything you know about The Terminator!
Paramount just dropped the second trailer for Terminator Genisys confirming some long-running rumours about how the 5th instalment in the franchise would alter timelines and change the roles of its iconic characters. Good guys will become bad guys and vice versa.
The obvious big twist that the trailer reveals is that the savour of humanity, John Conner played by Jason Clarke, has actually been converted into some of kind of advance cyborg that make the previous ones featured in the franchise look like crash test dummies.
The film is being described as a remix of the 1984 original, with resistance leader John Conner sending loyal soldier and friend Kyle Reese back in time from the post-apocalyptic future to save Connor’s mother Sarah from a Terminator programmed to kill her, while in the process events completely altering the timelines that previously took place specifically in the first and second films.
Also it goes without saying, it’s great to see Arnold Schwarzenegger return to the role that made him somewhat of a legend in the Sci Fi world. This film like the last few instalments has the potential to be great or a complete flop. Here’s hoping it’s not the latter.
