“In my mind I think of [Genisys] as the third film,” said James Cameron the co-writer and director of Terminator and T2.
Does the testimonial of Cameron create anymore buzz or hype for the Terminator film franchise? The marketing department has already spoiled the plot twist. The fact that John Connor is the villain is a major plot twist and a original idea, but this reveal should have been in the theater not on a YouTube trailer.
When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt.

Terminator Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor and opens in theaters July 1.
