We’ve got our first true look at Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor and a Dr. Who (Matt Smith) as a mysterious, yet-to-be-identified character. The film Terminator: Genisys has been given the high honor of adorning the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly with two different covers.
Inside the mag, the cast also gave insight into the film that is neither a reboot nor a sequel -- but still stars the original Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Emilia Clarke talked about how Schwarzenegger’s Terminator fits into the movie.
Apparently in this timeline, Connor was orphaned as a nine-year-old and has been raised by Arnold’s T-800, whom she calls “pops.” Clarke says that this incarnation of the Schwarzenegger iconic character is "programmed to guard rather than to kill."
One thing does remain constant -- Sarah Connor’s persona. She’s "great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion."
The character that the former Dr. Who, Smith, is portraying has remained a true mystery, but he did talk about what to expect from the film overall.
"It's like going on tour again if you’re Pink Floyd -- the audience always wants to hear some of the old songs. There are enough nods to the past that people will feel satisfied," Smith said.
Look for Terminator: Genisys on July 1, 2015, and until then, see how it all began and watch The Terminator online.
