Arnold will now be seen returning to what he does best – high octane action weaved into a gripping storyline. Reinventing the universe of the classic Terminator series, Terminator Genisys is a standalone part of a trilogy. Opening in the future, this new film follows Sarah Connar, John Connar, Kyle Reese and the Terminators in a relentless race through various time zones.
Talking about his return, Arnold said, “Very few times, if any, can I remember the same person being involved in the same franchise for that long of a period. That’s over 30 years! And interestingly enough I have also recently been asked to come back to other characters I have done in the past like Conan the Barbarian. It’s just amazing and unusual at the same time to get asked to return to those roles you played so many years ago, but the truth is that it makes me feel very honored.”
Known for his direction of the blockbuster – Thor: The Dark World and Game of Thrones, it was the level of thought and development that went into Terminator Genisys that attracted Director Alan Taylor to the project. He further stated, “I had just come off my first big movie experience with Thor: The Dark World and had mixed feelings in many ways about getting involved in another large production, but I couldn’t say, ‘No’ to Terminator Genisys. First of all I was drawn to the themes that were already very strong in Cameron’s first two movies, even though they were big budget action films, as they were very pressing and still relevant today in regards to what it means to be human.”
Terminator Genisys – produced by Skydance Productions and Paramount Pictures, will be distributed by Viacom18 Motion Pictures in India. The film releases in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu in IMAX 3D,Digital 3D and 2D Theatres and is slated for release on July 3, 2015.
