The trailer of Terminator: Genisys begins with a naked Kyle Reese floating in a time machine while resistance leader John Connor and several others stare at his wang with hopeful eyes. However, the 1984 that he expected to travel back to no longer exists. There’s been some kind of rift that’s created an alternate universe where Sarah Connor is a badass with an aged T-800 for a father.

It sets the stage for big rewards for fans of the first two films by re-purposing iconic characters, dialogue, locations, and sequences. I know it looks confusing, but if this new direction works the pay-off will be worth it. Think of it as being awesome in all of the ways that Back to the Future II is (multiple versions of one character in the same timeline; scenes revisited), but with the added bonus of killer robots, your favorite Terminator catchphrases, and Arnold Schwarzenegger back in Mr. Olympia shape thanks to the miracles of CGI.

While we still have to wait to see the first trailer for Terminator: Genisys, we at least can enjoy a quick glimpse thanks to this teaser trailer. In it you’ll see things you’ve seen before like the T-1000 morphing, nuclear war across the globe, and Arnold with a skinny little robot arm. Good luck recreating this one in Legos, nerds.

It’s interesting because there was no advance word that the T-1000 would be featured in the film. Who else could return? Danny Cooksey, perhaps? We’ll find out tomorrow.

‘Terminator: Genisys’ Is Going To Be Confusing http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/terminator-genisys-is-going-to-be-confusing/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/terminator-genisys-is-going-to-be-confusing/#comments Thu, 30 Oct 2014 17:05:20 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=266764 Like Jane Austen with time-traveling killer robots.

We’d been warned that Terminator: Genisys would be playing with the canon a little bit but didn’t expect it would be like this. It’s a weird way to go, but also a clever way to explain why Arnold Schwarzenegger looks like a roided out Jack Lemmon nowadays.

The big change revealed in Entertainment Weekly’s cover story is when Kyle Reese travels back to 1984, he finds that the Sarah Connor we met in the original film does not exist. Instead, her parents were killed by a Terminator when she was nine-years old and since that time she’s been raised by Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800, which she has named “Pops.” The result is an anti-social, emotionless Sarah Connor who probably couldn’t hold down that waitress job for a day.

Having been looped in to her fate as the mother of the revolution, Emilia Clarke‘s Connor rejects her destiny and won’t let any gross boys touch her. According to producer David Ellison, “It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”

I knew it. They’re going rom-com.

Though they didn’t know that last night’s True Detective finale was going to break the sh*t out of HBO GO, the executives at HBO did know it was going to draw a lot of eyeballs. So, they had another look at the fourth season of Game Of Thrones all ready for us. It’s predictably badass. We see Jamie learning how to cut guys in half with his other hand, the Titan of Braavos doing titan stuff, and the North remembering all the misery dumped on them.

Additionally, Daenerys tearing through evildoers while striving to be more than the Mother of Dragons. It’s hard out there for single moms and she needs to set a good example for her dragons.

Having already proved that she’s such a good mom to those dragons on Game of Thrones, Emilia Clarke has been cast as the mother of the rebellion, Sarah Connor, in the upcoming Terminator: Genesis. Unsurprisingly, Clarke won the role over Brie Larson, who doesn’t really have any onscreen experience kicking anybody’s ass or looking good while covered with soot and grime. She may have also had an inside track with former GoT director Alan Taylor at the helm.

It’s expected that her son, John Connor, will be played by similarly-named Jason Clarke while Arnold Schwarzenegger will also be returning to the franchise that made him famous by playing to his strengths of stilted line delivery and shooting at things. (Deadline)

The plot details for Terminator 5 are being kept under wraps but judging from this casting news, it’s going to be all over the place. First, it looks like they’re casting young for Sarah Connor. Emilia Clarke, Margot Robbie, and Brie Larson are all said to be testing to play the mother of the uprising. The interesting wrinkle is the news that Tom Hardy tops the wishlist to play John Connor. Does this mean that an adult John Connor will travel back in time and meet his pre-pregnancy mom? And isn’t he a robot now or something??

There’s also news that Nicholas Hoult and, for some reason, Taylor Kitsch are being considered for the role of Kyle Reese, the man originally sent back in time to protect/impregnate Sarah Connor. We’ll keep an eye for any plot descriptions but, honestly, this time travel stuff is already hurting our heads. (THR)

Fans of the undead and heads getting bashed in are in for the best night of their lives on Sunday, March 1st. On that night, The Walking Dead wraps up its third season and passes the torch to Game Of Thrones as the HBO series returns for season three. After months of teases and plugging fingers in our ears as friends discuss the book, we finally have an actual look at show footage.

And dragons. Fully grown dragons f&*%ing up people’s sh*t. Here’s hoping this is the season where Joffrey will be impaled on the Iron Throne. Why else would there be swords all over that thing?

HBO has released a new teaser trailer for their epic fantasy series, "Game of Thrones." The clip, which ran before last night's episode of "True Blood," featured your standard fanta-crap fare: men on horses, sword fights, a single hot chick with long, flowing hair. But it also contained a lot of slow-motion shots of a raven flying. I'm sure the raven has some significance, but I'm not going to look it up. That crap's for dorks, yo! And I'm no dork! I'll just check my fantasy football stats, instead. (Deadline) Watch the new "Game of Thrones" teaser after the jump.
