When I heard they were rebooting Terminator I was intrigued. I remember when Terminator 2 was going to be broadcast on TV and I bought a special high quality VHS tape to record it. I wore that tape out I watched that film so much.

The trailer for Terminator Genisys dropped today and I can say that I am now officially excited to see the new film. From the trailer it looks like Arnold is back and there is a new "messed up" timeline ALA Star Trek 2009.

What do you think of the Terminator Genisys trailer?

People are calling it a reboot, but it doesn't seem like that to me. It's new actors playing familiar characters but it still takes place in the same continuity.

And one good thing about the Terminator franchise is that there's literally nothing in canon that they can't change. All it takes is sending a terminator back a little farther and a new timeline is born. The Sarah Connor Chronicles had a timeline change after T2 and before T3. Great show, too.

So yeah we terminator fans are used to abandoning canon and accepting new canon. But some are saying this movie will take it too far. Young Sarah growing up with a good terminator? It doesn't bother me, I'm still excited, but a lot of people are complaining loudly about it. I do wish Cameron would come back for another one but I doubt he would at this point.

I had been reading about it but finally got a chance to actually *watch* the trailer, and wow. Emilia Clarke is very convincing as Sarah Connor.

She is. Some say she looks too young but in this version she is 19.

Or supposed to be 19, as all things that could be a bad source.

Emilia Clarke is 27. I think she's old enough :) She does look way younger though.
