First "Terminator: Genisys" Trailer Features New And Old Arnold Schwarzenegger

He's back, again, for the last time, maybe.

On Tuesday, Paramount released the first trailer for Terminator: Genisys, the fifth Terminator movie since the first one premiered 30 years ago.

No, it does not explain why the title is spelled that way. Instead, the trailer sets up the film's storyline. Basically, the Terminator timeline has been altered once again so that Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) is now a kick-ass woman who is not in need of rescue from future soldier Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney), thanks to an older Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) who has been training and protecting her, because time travel and franchise reboot reasons.


And, finally, it wouldn't really be a Terminator movie without Arnold Schwarzenegger — and this time, there are two!

Old Arnold Schwarzenegger T-800 Terminator has apparently been waiting for young Arnold Schwarzenegger T-800 Terminator.

Time is a flat circle.

We also see old Arnold Schwarzenegger T-800 regarding his metal skeleton hand once more.

Except this is the first time this particular Terminator model has done that, because this model was sent back to when Sarah Connor was a young girl, so he's not the same model as the one from 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day. At least, I think? (See above, re: time being flat and also a circle.)

Of course, once again, they are going to try to stop Judgment Day from happening.

And, of course, if they do stop it from happening, it would be kind of hard to keep making Terminator movies.

Soooo… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
