The latest edition of Entertainment Weekly gives readers a first look and first glimpse at Terminator: Genisys, a reboot of the beloved Terminator franchise. This film is the first of a trio of new films to try and revamp the series that has struggled in recent years.

The opening of Terminator: Genisys will start off in 2029, where the war between man and machine is in full swing. Dawn of the Planet of The Apes star Jason Clarke will play John Connor, and Jai Courtney, who starred in the fifth Die Hard film as John McClane’s son, will play Kyle Reese. Reese, portrayed by Michael Beihn in the original film, is sent back to 1984 to save his mother from a Terminator programmed to kill her before she can give birth to John.

The new Entertainment Weekly article will detail Paramount’s plan to reinvent the $1.4 billion franchise, including a complex time travel plan. “It’s like going on tour again if you’re Pink Floyd—the audience always wants to hear some of the old songs,” Matt Smith, the former Doctor Who star who plays a dear friend to Connor in 2029, says. “There are enough nods to the past that people will feel satisfied.”

James Cameron’s Terminator was a moderate success in 1984, but it was the sequel, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, that sent the franchise into legendary status and raked in the biggest majority of the franchise’s box office. The technology on display in T2 is some of the most groundbreaking technology in cinema history, catapulting films into the special effects bonanzas of the 90s.

After that, directors were different for a corny Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines, and a dreary Terminator: Salvation, which seemed to destroy the franchise and its ability to move forward. Neither film could compare to Cameron’s original pair.

Terminator: Genisys will be released on July 1, 2015. you can read the rest of the article in the upcoming edition of Entertainment Weekly.
