Paramount has released a new Terminator: Genisys trailer, and it finally shows what the latest installment in the franchise has to offer. The story looks like it’s going along the regular beats—A terminator is sent back by the machines to kill Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) so her son John (Jason Clarke) can’t be born and be humanity’s savior; one of John’s soldiers, Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney), goes back to protect Sarah from the terminator.
We knew that in this sequel an older Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) was protecting Sarah and had been doing so since she was a child. The new trailer reveals that the threat isn’t just another liquid metal Terminator. The threat is John Connor, and not necessarily a mechanized-version. The trailer makes it clear this isn’t a matter of the machines learning how to shapeshift, and that there’s technically some of the real John Connor who’s trying to kill Sarah and Kyle. Now I’m interested.
Check out the new Terminator: Genisys trailer below along with a new image. The film opens in 3D on July 1st, and also stars J.K. Simmons, Byung-hun Lee, Matt Smith, Dayo Okeniyi, and Courtney B. Vance.

Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…
