As the trailer for Terminator: Genisys was recently revealed, new facts have come to light, so Enstars sums up all we know about the plot of the movie so far.
The clip prepares fans for some new twists in the plot. In the trailer Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) and John Connor (Jason Clarke) are actually seen interacting, as Reese volunteers to go back and save Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). In another cut, things are upended from what fans are used to, as Sarah is seen saving Kyle from a T-800 who is trying to terminate him. As the trailer progresses she informs him about Schwarzenegger's cyborg descending on earth and how everything is different this time around. As Schwarzenegger is shown as the Terminator, a flashback shows him carrying a young Sarah. In the recently revealed Entertainment Weekly cover story on the movie, we found out that Schwarzenegger's character will actually play guardian to Sarah growing up, and protect her.
The new film is being directed by Alan Taylor. Sandrine Holt (House of Cards) will be playing Detective Cheung, who will "arrest Kyle and Sarah when they arrive in 2017."
While it had been suggested that the film will be a reboot, that is not exactly true. It has been reported that Terminator: Genisys will rewind to the first two films in the series and will move back and forth in the plot with the help of time travel scenes.
The first official look at the movie was revealed in Entertainment Weekly in October. In the excerpts available online it is revealed that Sarah of Genisys will actually be quite different from the Sarah fans have known until now. She will not be a diffident waif, who is completely thrown by the Terminator tracking her and clueless about her destiny as John Connor's (Jason Clarke) mother and the war against Skynet. The new Sarah Connor will be aware of her destiny since she is 9 years of age and will be raised by an older T-800, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Co-producer David Ellison dished about this aspect of Sarah's character.
"Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen," Ellison said. "But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, 'That's not what I want to do.' It's her decision that drives the story in a very different direction."
The magazine's cover features Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) raging on a bike, as Sarah handles steers the ride, with Reese behind her holding out his heavy-weight gun. The alternate cover features John Connor and actor Matt Smith, whose character has not been revealed yet.
Another very interesting aspect of this film is the fact that the cyborg will age. Arnold Schwarzenegger revealed that the Terminator won't defy mortality for the very first time.
"The way that the character is written, it's a machine underneath," he said. "It's this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator's flesh ages, just like any other human being's flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages."
The actor also suggested that there would be multiple cyborgs in the film.
Terminator: Genisys is scheduled to release in July 2015.
