Seriously, the first time I saw this new trailer for Terminator Genisys I thought “what the hell?” But now that I’ve seen it a few times, I’m thinking “WHAT THE HELL”?!
Now that’s what I call mucking with the franchise’s timeline, and themes for that matter.
If you thought weirding out the whole Sarah Connor/Terminator dynamic was strange before, then adding an evil, cyborg John Connor is something entirely… different. Connor’s state kind of reminds me of the ‘singularity’ theory, which states that there’ll come a point where humans meld with machines to make a kind of hybrid race, which is destined to be our future as a species. Borg aside, I have no idea if that’s where they’re heading with this movie or not, but either way, it sure is a reboot of the highest order.
Whether it’s one that fans will get behind or not is still up in the air. What say you?
Terminator Genisys hits theaters on July 1st.
