The T-800 Is Back in the ‘Terminator Genisys’ Motion Poster
Even as a nearly lifelong ‘Terminator’ and Arnold Schwarzenegger fan, it is tough to figure out what to expect from ‘Terminator Genisys.’ Those ultra-agro cast photos looked like a cosplay party gone wrong, the title looks like an autocorrect disaster, and the plot synopsis as we understand it right now (with Sarah Connor, played by Emilia Clarke, raised from childhood by a Terminator, played by Schwarzenegger, she calls “Pops”) sounds ... weird. Like, really weird.
Hopefully, things will become a little clearer (and less weird) with the release of the film’s first trailer, which, Paramount just announced, will hit the Internet this coming Thursday. In the meantime, the studio released this little morsel of marketing excitement: A ‘Genisys’ motion poster featuring the classic T-800 endoskeleton.
It’s like that great Kansas song says: All we are is dust in the wind. Did you know that song is about ‘The Terminator’? Because it is. It is about how all we are are the dust of Terminators in the wind. It’s a very powerful lyric when you think about.
The Terminator himself is stoked about the impending trailer as well. Here’s what he tweeted about the news:
Did he? Did he say he’d be back? It’s funny; I don’t ever recall him saying that line even once in all these years. It just doesn’t sound familiar. Oh well. Regardless, ‘Terminator Genisys’ opens in theaters on July 1, 2015.
