|Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the role that made him a household name as The Terminator. James Cameron may have started the franchise and gave us his second best sequel (his first best sequel easily goes to “Aliens”) but thanks to greedy rights holders and incompetent filmmakers (stares at MCG) the franchise has lost itfan following.
Alan Taylor, who directed “Thor: The Dark World”, hopes to breathe new life into the Terminator franchise with “Terminator Genisys”. Along for the ride is his “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke in the role of Sarah Connor popularized by Linda Hamilton. Rounding out the cast are Jason Clark as John Connor and Jai Courtney.
So far the trailers and marketing materials haven’t looked promising though reviews claim this is “the best Terminator since T2” which really isn’t saying much.
