The Terminator: Genisys trailer is here! So, what did we learn.
Actually quite a lot and now we know what filmmakers meant when they said this wasn't a sequel and was not a reboot. It's a bit of a re-imagining.
So, what's our takeaway?
Click through and discover our 13 biggest Terminator: Genisys trailer moments!
Jason Clarke's John Connor Is Quite the Leader
In the James Cameron movies, we always heard about what a great leader John Connor is, but in this first trailer for the new series, we see it. And Jason Clarke, well, he couldn’t have been better cast.
Kyle Reese Will Do Anything For John Connor
Something we also gathered from that first Terminator movie is that Kyle Reese would do anything to help his hero, mentor and friend John Connor. We see that within minutes in the new Terminator: Genisys trailer as Jai Courtney’s Reese volunteers to save Connor’s mother Sarah.
Those Future Terminators Are Still Bad Ass
There is something truly awesome and menacing about the metallic design of the Terminator robots that were first introduced by James Cameron and his team all those years ago. And when the Terminator robot emerges from the crashed ship in the trailer and begins firing at Reese and Connor, our jaws dropped -- just like they did back in the 80s!
We See the Skynet War Launch!
Again, something that we only heard about in earlier Terminator movies is shown to us in this trailer. When Skynet becomes self aware and launches a full scale nuclear attack on the human race, this trailer shows it! Kind of mind blowing, isn’t it?
The Stakes Are High
John Connor says, “If we die tonight, mankind dies with us.” That kind of puts things in perspective as to how important this moment is in the Terminator canon.
The use of Ten Years After’s I’d Love to Change the World is brilliant, given the change in timeline that this movie is promising. We love this version as it fits the Terminator world impeccably.
