Emilia Clarke, JK Simmons, and a Geriatric T-800 in New 'Terminator: Genisys' Images

Maybe humanity and Skynet don't have to be enemies. 

After all, as this summer's Terminator: Genisys reveals, both people and T-800s have to deal with growing old and watching their hair turn grey.

Arnold Schwarzenegger models his most famous characters new silver fox look in one of four new Genisys pictures that also feature Emilia Clarke as the rebooted Sarah Connor and Oscar winner JK Simmons as Detective O'Brien, a new figure in the Terminator mythos, one obsessed with Sarah and her robotic guardian.

See, in this Terminator reboot-prequel-sequel John Connor (Jason Clarke, no relation), leading the future war against an enemy he doesn't know is capable of greying, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to 1984 to protect his mother, just like he did in James Cameron's original.  This time, though, Kyle discovers that Sarah's not a naive waif, but a hardened warrior raised by a Terminator.  Turns out all these naked time-traveling adventures have mucked up the timeline something serious.  Together, Sarah, Kyle, and Papa-nator set out to exploit that, once again attempting to cancel Judgment Day before it starts.

Of course, their efforts aren't likely to be successful.  Paramount has already scheduled two more Terminator sequels for May 2017 and June 2018, meaning the war between and our all-too-similar AI nemeses will continue unabated.

These latest photographic dispatches from the war are from the pages of Empire (by way of Coming Soon), and they illustrate yet another commonality between man and machine: both are licensed to drive big trucks.


Alan Taylor, a frequent Game of Thrones helmer who made his blockbuster debut with Thor: The Dark World last year, directs Terminator: Genisys. The screenplay is written by Avatar producer/uncredited co-writer Laeta Kalogridis and Drive Angry director Patrick Lussier.   Their take on Terminator is certainly rich in lore from previous movies, but will it also bring anything new to the table?

We'll find out when Terminator: Genisys opens in 2D and 3D this July 1st.
