Christopher Webster [Celluloid 12.02.14] post apocalyptic scifi horror action adventure

Like everything we've seen or read about Terminator: Genisys, this motion poster is fairly uninteresting. The only thing you may find interesting about the crumbling exoskeleton is the score behind it which sounds like a rock n' roll re-imagining of Brad Fiedel's original, more industrial score.

Do we need more guitar riffs in our Terminator movies? I say, no.

Sarah Connor isn't the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she's been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger's Terminator—an older T-800 she calls "Pops"—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who's great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.

Here's the motion poster:

Terminator Genisys opens July 2, 2015. It is directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) and stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke and Matt Smith as well as Byung-Hun Lee and JK Simmons.

Everyone needs to stop giving this movie crap. There is no trailer yet and the movie is months off from it's release. Everything that's been floating around in terms of what this movie will be about is actually interesting and give this franchise something new to look forward to instead of something old (no pun intended).

Point taken. It's definitely early days. We expect a trailer later this week. But still, what we've seen has been pretty weak. And I am a huge Terminator fan, so I am hoping to get really excited about the film.
