Here comes the Terminator franchise reboot you’ve been hearing about! With the return of actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, “Terminator: Genisys”--the fifth installment of the classic Sci-Fi franchise--has just released the latest trailer, announcing its grand opening in theaters around the world in July 2015.
Being one of the forerunners of dystopia human-robot action/warfare/survival genre, the Terminator franchise has left lasting cultural impressions with its invention of a ruthless supercomputer “Skynet,” the fatal T-800 robots with menacing endoskeletons, and the T-1000 shapeshifters in their shinning liquid metal "skin."
According to Paramount Pictures, “Terminator: Genisys” will jumpstart a new trilogy for the franchise (the other two are slotted to hit the theaters in May 2017 and June 2018, respectively). Directed by Alan Taylor with “Thor 2: The Dark World” and “Game of Thrones” fame, the new film itself will come to a theater near you in July next year.
Until then, fans of Schwarzenegger and the Terminator franchise can comfort themselves with a dramatic reenactment of his famous line: “I will be baaaaack."
