It’s hard to believe but Brad Fiedel’s iconic Terminator theme was only used in the first two movies from James Cameron and not in either of the inferior sequels. But that’s all about to change this July when the fifth movie in the franchise hits, Terminator: Genisys.
This time around the music is composed by Lorne Balf and, although we have to hear the rest of the score – Fiedel’s score for the first two still stands head-and-shoulders above most scores to this day – Balf has really nailed the main theme.
Harking back to the first movie’s theme, the new version has some nods towards the heavier, more industrial sound of the second movie and therefore sits somewhere in the middle.
And it’s glorious.
After James Cameron gushing about the movie a few days ago (here), is this another reason to be excited for this movie? We certainly think so… now, turn it alllllllllllllllllllllllll the way up
When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…
