While a lot of fans of the Terminator franchise have been really wary of Terminator: Genisys for a number of reasons, the first trailer has managed to assuage a number of them and perk up interest in general with what it’s doing. We’ve got awhile to go before the film itself, and the second trailer, but ahead of all of that Paramount has released a new theatrical poster that will start making its way into theaters soon.
The plan at this point is for the second film in the new trilogy to be released on May 19th, 2017 while the third installment will land on June 29th, 2018. With the way dates fill up pretty far out, it’s not a surprise to see more forward planning like kthis.
The first film is set for a July 1st, 2015 release with a supporting TV series planned as well. The film will be directed by Alan Taylor and stars Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Day Okeniyi, Matt Smith and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Plot concept: 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.
