This is the moment we’ve all been waiting for. We’ve heard that Terminator Genisys rewrites the franchise timeline, and that one scene features Arnold Schwarzenegger’s older, grizzled T-800 throwing down with his original 1984 self. There have been glimpses, and we don’t get to see much in this new clip, but we get the beginning, and that’s enough to pique my interest. Check it out after the jump.
I’m still not entirely clear how I feel about Genisys. On one hand, the last two Terminator movies are terrible, and this one has looked problematic, what with the wholesale revision to the timeline, essentially erasing the good movies. Then again, the closer we get, the more we learn, the more intriguing this sound and I have to admit, despite my early reservations, I’m getting pretty optimistic about this one.
This clip revisits the scene from James Cameron’s 1984 Terminator where Schwarzenegger shows up, buck ass nude, and murder’s three punks, including a young Bill Paxton, for their clothes. This time, however, there’s someone waiting for him. I am worried that this epic tussle will be a super shitty CGI mess, but I’m trying to stay positive. It’s hard. And there’s no Bill Paxton, which is a bummer.
Terminator Genisys also stars Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, Jai Courtney, Lee Byung-hun, and more, and opens everywhere July 1. Check out the Arnold on Arnold violence below.
