Arnold Schwarzenegger is once again in action in the first full trailer for “Terminator Genisys,” the 2015 release that will return the iconic sci-fi franchise to the screen.
Watch the explosive new clip above.
Directed by Alan Taylor (“Game of Thrones,” “Thor: The Dark World”) and based on the original 1984 film by James Cameron, “Terminator Genisys” sees Emilia Clarke, known to many from her work on “Game of Thrones,” star as Sarah Connor, with Jai Courtney playing Kyle Reese.
Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-Hun Lee and J.K. Simmons round out the “Terminator Genisys” cast.
To help stoke excitement for the trailer, Paramount and Skydance Productions have been releasing promotional materials throughout the week. On Tuesday, a motion poster featuring a grinning cybernetic skull arrived, followed by a short bit of first-look video on Wednesday.
The film recently received some scrutiny over its plot, with die-hard fans upset over a retooled origin for the series’ heroine, but in an interview with Hero Complex earlier this year, Emilia Clarke promised a “badass” interpretation of the character.
The new trailer certainly highlights her warrior skills, with Clarke delivering Reese’s famous line from the original movie, “Come with me if you want to live.”
“Terminator Genisys” is slated to open in theaters July 1.
