article image‘Terminator: Genisys’ trailer reveals uncertainty of time travel

By Sarah Gopaul     Dec 4, 2014 in Entertainment
The first official trailer for ‘Terminator: Genisys’ is out and nothing is the way fans remember it, but perhaps that will be a good thing.
“Everything’s changed” says Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) to a confused Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney). That’s a bit of an understatement based on the events depicted in the first trailer for Terminator: Genisys.
Opening on an apocalyptic wasteland, a battle-scarred John Connor (Jason Clarke) rallies a despondent group of soldiers. “If we die tonight, mankind dies with us,” he announces from a platform. Explaining the plot of the first film in which a Terminator was sent back in time to kill his mother, Reese volunteers to protect her. It looks like audiences will get a better look at the technology used to transport Reese back in time as well as mass produce Skynet's robotic assassins.
John describes his 1984 mother as “scared and weak,” but it looks like he’s wrong about more than one thing regarding the past. Sarah runs over a T-1000, opening the door to the armoured car and reaching out her hand to Kyle while saying one of the franchise’s many legendary phrases, “Come with me if you want to live.” She also unexpectedly identifies Kyle as a soldier.
“The time John sent you to — it no longer exists.” An older T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is shown destroying the evil T-800 (also played by Schwarzenegger) originally sent back to kill Sarah. It appears the timeline has been reset. Events from the previous films seem to have collapsed onto each other to create this reboot, which is the first of three pictures being added to the franchise.
The scenes that follow are a dizzying array of adrenaline-fuelled gunfights, explosions, liquid-metal Terminators and a cartwheeling school bus, assuring fans at least one thing remains the same: there will be no shortage of action or special effects.
The trailer concludes with Schwarzenegger repeating one of his most famous lines before diving headfirst into a helicopter. “I’ll be back.” Keeping his word, he is back for a summer 2015 release and fortunately the film is not snubbing its predecessors… well, maybe Salvation.
