Tomorrow, he is back.
With that brooding line, the 30-second teaser of Terminator: Genisys opens.
The opening sequence shows a shapeshifting T-1000 cyborg who seems to have hitched a ride on a police car. As he slowly transforms, bullets are fired from behind the wheel.
The scene is reminiscent of Schwarzenegger's revival in 1991's Terminator 2: Judgement Day. It is followed by scenes of attack from all across the world. The best is saved for the last when we meet Arnold. The outdated Series 800-model Terminator is shown looking at his exposed metal endoskeleton and likely assess that it needs repair.
Terminator: Genisys is set in 2029 and will see Arnold Schwarzenegger reprise his role as the Terminator, which he began in 1984. This installment sees him train and protect a young Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). Her future son John Conner, played by Jason Clarke, sends his trusted lieutenant Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to ensure that his mother is not killed and he survives.
The franchise earlier said Goodbye to traditional movie posters in a dramatic fashion on Tuesday with the release of an animated graphic poster.
The haunting poster featureD the T-800 cyborg skull of a Terminator with eyes glowing red and yellow dentures in its mouth. The face rapidly granulates from the right side of the jawline through the top of the head -- with the right eye blinking and then fading out as the crumbled metallic pieces collect below like sand falling through an hourglass.
