Terminator Genisys

Terminator Genisys

Sci-fi thriller. Arnold Schwarzenegger is back again, this time starring alongside Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke and Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke in the fifth instalment of the Terminator franchise. In 2029, John Connor (Clarke) and his Resistance movement are on the cusp of defeating Skynet, the artificial intelligence programme that attempted to obliterate the human race. But before they can do so, Skynet send a Terminator android back to 1984 to kill John’s mother Sarah (Clarke) before John’s even born. So John sends his best friend Kyle (Courtney) back in time to protect Sarah. But, unlike in the original movies, Kyle arrives in an alternate reality to the one he was expecting; one where Sarah has already teamed up with her reprogrammed Terminator guardian (Schwarzenegger), can look after herself, and would rather stop Skynet herself than just give birth to a future Resistance leader.
