New intriguing details from the Terminator: Genisys screenplay

02.18.2015

Reaction to the first trailers for TERMINATOR: GENISYS have been mixed, at best. Some are not content to accept any sequels to James Cameron's original while others are not sold on the reboot vibe coming off of Alan Taylor's film. Whatever the end result, we likely won't know until the film hits theaters. But, new details have emerged thanks to some folks who have read a current draft of the film's screenplay.

The Arnold Fans shared some lengthy reviews of the TERMINATOR: GENISYS script from various people, some of which contain spoilers. You can head to their site and read the full reviews of the screenplay, but we pulled some intriguing snippets for your enjoyment.

"I think the best way to describe Terminator Genisys is three action packed movies in one. First of all, we finally get to see the Future Wars. Where John Connor, Kyle Reese and resistance take on Skynet. This is something that Terminator fans have wanted to see since James Cameron gave them a preview of it in the first film."

"I get the vibe that fans have been disappointed with Arnold's involvement in action sequences since his comeback. Well, that changes with Terminator Genisys. Arnold is front and center of all the big action during the 1984 and (*deleted) portion of the movie."

"The atmosphere feels gritty and exciting, especially in the future war scenes. I can't give spoilers but sfx is going to pushed to the limit for war scenes at the start, I really hope they can do it justice onscreen."

"This also plays out like no other Terminator film yet in the fact it's not set in one time period from start to finish with a single villain to deal with! No the threat is greater here with two well known model terminators and a couple of other types spread throughout the movie - which has 3 major time zones. Safe to say the movie will look unique all the way through, keeping it fresh and exciting."

Other details hint to the Arnold vs Arnold fight we see a glimpse of in the trailer as well as a substantial portion taking place in the future with Jason Clarke as adult John Connor. Several comparisons are made between TERMINATOR: GENISYS and BACK TO THE FUTURE, which may be a gauge on how much of a time travel paradox we may be in store for with the first TERMINATOR being branched in different directions.

From all indications in these reviews, TERMINATOR: GENISYS is definitely not going to be what we expect.  But, can it live up to the quality of the first two films if it jumps around and feels like multiple movies in one?  I am willing to keep an open mind since the linear narratives of both RISE OF THE MACHINES and SALVATION left a lot to be desired.  Maybe mixing it up and really going for something unique will be worth the risk.

TERMINATOR: GENISYS opens on July 1, 2015.

I'm VERY skeptical about this movie. Cameron always introduced something new but the last 2 reeked of repetition & lame storytelling. Time travel doesn't make a movie good. A story does. Let's hope they have a damn good reason why Arnie's old T800 is still alive & that it makes logical sense. Not Looper sense.

Arnold back in action?

though his recent movies have been lacking... The Last Stand was interesting. they designed Arnold's fighting style to rely on leveraging his size and body weight. he does a lot of grabs and holds. which makes so much sense given his age. he may not be so strong and fast, but she's still huge.

The third time zone...

Judging from the trailer we get FUTURE WAR, 1984, and then present day (we see Arnold in 1984 after he has already raised Sarah, and then we see Arnold with grey hair indicating more time has passed). Sarah hasnt aged, so I am guessing they somehow travel forward in time (like it's right out of the Sarah Connor Chronicles) and Arnold has to "wait" for them again or something.

It wont be T1 or T2, but as long as it's not T4 or TS then Ill be happy I guess.

not sure about present day. maybe... but note that Terminator Salvation is supposed to take place in 2018 (with the future war being 2029).

i thought the third timezone was the 90's (i.e. T2). they take measures to make 1984 go smoothly, but this inadvertently screws up the things they did in T2, so they have travel forward and re-do that too.

if they sent Arnold back to Sarah's childhood (note the scene in the trailer with when he s carrying a little girl - he has brown hair). that

if they sent Arnold back to Sarah's childhood (note the scene in the trailer with when he s carrying a little girl - he has brown hair). that would be like late 60's/early 70's? then by the 80's he'd could still have brown hair, but by the 90's he'd have gray hair.

total guess, but the scene in the trailer when gray arnold says "i'll be back" in the helicopter, they're at the Cyberdyne facility from T2.

Maybe, I just feel like they will want to move the story and current stars into the current day for sequels sake. Are you sure they are at Cyberdyne though?

current day makes the least sense though. following Terminator 3, Judgement Day occurred in 2004. i guess their actions in the 80's could delay Judgement Day again. but if the whole plot of the movie is "we can only delay Judgement Day" then it's pretty much a rehash a of Terminator 3. i don't know if that's the Cyberdyne facility in the trailer. that's why i said it's a total guess.

One can assume Arnie doesn't kill the 1984 terminator with a simple shot gun. But all of this info is interesting to say the least. Whether it works on film is another question. Still hopeful on a good Terminator film.
