Terminator fans have much to celebrate with a brand new threequal on the way, and with “Terminator Genisys” already wrapped up and ready to be released on July 1, 2015…what more can we ask for! Paramount is keeping the storyline tightly under wraps and we are still waiting to see what they have planned for the newly developed stand-alone trilogy. Arnold Schwarzenegger did however share some details with us, saying that we can expect an ‘older’ version of his iconic Cyborg in the next installment. The 67-year-old actor also mentioned that the new ”Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800 and then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets a hold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie.” Building even more excitement, we should also expect  ‘Genesis’ to have the Same Feel as ‘Terminator 2′, the second installment in the blockbuster franchise starring Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor and Edward Furlong as John Connor.

Wow, that is a mouthful but it doesn’t really address the rumors and headlines indicating that the brand new trilogy is suppose to be a reboot. According to the source, Genesis bears comparison to Back To The Future 2, which partly involves time travel within the events of the first film. This actually coincides with Arnie saying that it will have a “Terminator 2 feel”, but the film will also have a third time period in the future apparently. Nothing has been set in stone but if true, how will all that fit in with a brand new trilogy? We have to give Paramount points for keeping us guessing!

This brings us to a recent interview with one of the stars of the upcoming fifth installment and first movie of the new trilogy. Jai Courtney who will playing Kyle Reese spilled the beans while chatting with The Huffington Post. The Australian actor says we are definitely not looking at a reboot or sequel for the new trilogy:

“What I can say is that we start in a place we’re familiar with from the early films and then, you know, circumstances change,” “It somewhat shifts the course of events from that point. It’s not necessarily a sequel or a reboot. I don’t even know how you brand it correctly. We’re not remaking one of the early Terminator movies. And it doesn’t necessarily carry on from the point where we left off.”

His explanation seems to carry some similarities with many rumors flying around as mentioned earlier. Any geeks out there excited for the “new” Terminator franchise?

“Terminator Genisys” is directed by Alan Taylor, also starring Emilia Clarke as John’s mother Sarah Connor and  Jason Clarke  is attached as John Connor. The script is written by Laeta Kalogridis (“Shutter Island”) and Patrick Lussier (“Drive Angry”). The remaining sci-fi action films are expected to be filmed back to back with the first sequel dated for May 19, 2017 and the second slated for June 29, 2018.
