This week’s Entertainment Weekly is home to our first look at the upcoming flick Terminator: Genisys, and right now we have a gallery of images featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Conner, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Conner, and Matt Smith as John Conner’s ally (his role is being kept quiet).
Byung-hun Lee, Aaron V. Williamson, Dayo Okeniyi, and J.K. Simmons also star. Alan Taylor directs.
Look for the film in theatres July 1, 2015, via Paramount.
The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set 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 (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai 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 (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia 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.
