While we’ve seen set pics of Schwarzenegger on the fifth film in the Terminator franchise, Terminator: Genesis, this is the first time we’ve seen him in character. You can also see Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, and Jason Clarke.
As previously reported, the explanation we’re given for Schwarzenegger playing an aging Terminator comes down to living flesh:
“Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800, and then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets a hold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie, but I feel so good. The way that the character is written, it’s a machine underneath. It’s this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator’s flesh ages, just like any other human being’s flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages.”
The Alan Taylor directed reboot is being produced by Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions will bring back Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role with Jai Courtney playing Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke playing Sarah Connor. More recent additions to the cast include Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Byng-hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man), Sandrine Holt (House of Cards) and Dayao Okeniyi (The Hunger Games).
The idea is to thread together ideas from the previous movies to relaunch the story of a cyborg from the future sent back to prevent computers from gaining sentience and turning on humanity.
The film will be released July 1st, 2015.
