Terminator: Genisys Pics & Plot - Win or Fail?

Click the Above Title to read the Full Story....


The details of the latest attempt at firing the Terminator franchise back up have been revealed thanks to Entertainment Weekly.  The only problem is, it looks REALLY hoaky.  I'm a huge Terminator nerd.  I mean I read the comic books..love T1 and T2..I even dug Salvation..and the Sarah Connor Chronicles is still one of my favorite all-time shows.  That being said, I have to be honest about my initial reactions..this one looks very contrived and forced.   


These pictures are all poses for the magazine, so we still don't know how the film will look, but this exerpt about the plot (SPOILERS!) really alarms me:

Their recipe calls for one part Teutonic monotone with Arnold Schwarzenegger back in a big way, and four parts exciting new cast with geek bonafides that are sure to appease the Comic-Con masses, plus ground-breaking special effects and a few shocking twists on the canon.

Twist No. 1? Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger’s Terminator—an older T-800 she calls “Pops”—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.

“Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” says Ellison. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.”

...What do you think fans?
