Terminator Genisys is the upcoming fifth entry in the highly popular sci-fi movie franchise, though original director James Cameron has no part in the series any longer. However, after seeing an early screening, Cameron is singing praises about the film and says that you are “going to love” this movie.
The first two movies in the Terminator franchise by Cameron are two of the most well respected science fiction movies of all time, if not movies period. The third and fourth especially are nowhere near as loved, even garnering strong hate from many after their releases.
The upcoming Terminator Genisys sees the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as a Terminator, with Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke taking over the iconic role of Sarah Connor alongside the return of Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney). Fans have been divided on this film from merely the trailers, especially with a major twist being revealed in the last trailer that puts usual savior John Connor (Jason Clarke) in the villain role.
Cameron may have quelled some of the fears in an interview seen in a video from Yahoo, where he goes as far as to say that he sees Terminator Genisys as the true third entry in the franchise. This sounds very promising for a series that has a lot of question marks surrounding it after the critically disappointing T3 and Salvation.
“I start to see things I recognize. It’s being very respectful of the first two films. And then all of the sudden, it just swerves. And now I’m going on a journey. I feel like the franchise has been reinvigorated, like this is a renaissance.”
The only concern with these comments is that Cameron also talked up both of those movies before release, though he later talked about how disappointed he was in them in a Reddit AMA last year.
Terminator Genisys is set to release in only a few weeks on July 1, so the wait is almost over.
