Paramount Pictures and Skydance Production have been ramping up their marketing campaign for Terminator: Genisys quite hard recently, and it continues today with a new “living one-sheet.” Despite the fancy moniker, this is really just a motion poster—one in which Arnold Schwarzenegger goes from looking like a CG version of himself to a full-skeletal Terminator.
For those unaware, director Alan Taylor’s (Thor: The Dark World) film begins with future John Connor (Jason Clarke) sending Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to the year 1983 in order to save his mother (Emilia Clarke) from being assassinated. When Reese arrives in the past, however, Sarah is already being shepherded by a friendly Terminator while on the run from deadly foes. In short, the game has changed, but the players are the same (but the game has changed!).
