The second trailer for Terminator: Genisys has been officially released, and it reveals the film’s villain. It’s not who you expected.
Thanks to some questionable promo shots last year, the movie has received some deserved mocking. But I’m still looking forward to it. I’ve felt for a long time that the Terminator timeline has needed a reboot as there’s only so many times you can change the date for Judgement Day before it becomes a running joke in the series. That’s why I’m excited for Genisys this year as it’s a series I’d like to see continue and it would need a fresh start.
Back when the movie was just in its rumor stage photos of Kyle Reese and Sarah aiming a gun at John Connor leaked. That lead to the plot point of John being a Terminator leaking out, which many people didn’t believe. This trailer confirms that and the entire last half of it shows a whole lot of the John Connor Terminator wrecking havoc, so it’s not exactly something they really want to hide anymore. And making him the Terminator is exactly the kind of “WTF” twist that makes me want to see the movie.
