More Images & Plot Details For ‘Terminator Genisys’ – Starring Emilia Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matt Smith, Jason Clarke…
Following yesterday’s cover reveal, Entertainment Weekly has today unveiled further plot details and 6 promo images for ‘Terminator Genisys.’ If you missed it yesterday, the outlet revealed the following story details for the hugely anticipated reboot: “The beginning of Terminator: Genisys is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.”
Today, EW adds that the film will be recreating Arnold Schwarzenegger’s emergence from the original 1984 film using both a body double and digital scans of his face from James Cameron’s film. “It’s the holy grail of visual effects,” Producer David Ellison says. “You create a walking, breathing human that doesn’t exist.” They also confirm the long standing rumor that the film’s villain will be a man-machine hybrid. “Part of the challenge is to dazzle people with something they haven’t seen before,” director Alan Taylor says. “There are elements in our main villain that are straining the capacities of our brilliant visual-effects people. So that’s a good sign.”
