In the midst of a 2029 fight for humanity’s survival, John Connor (Jason Clarke) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to thwart SkyNet’s Terminator programme and save his mother’s life. Only the past isn’t what they had expected. After being orphaned at the hands of a Terminator when she was just nine, Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) was raised and protected by another Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger), as the three are left to fight a new fearsome enemy, with everything at stake.

While the plot seems a little preposterous even for a Terminator movie, given there are sequels already penciled in for 2017 and 2018 the rebooted franchise could really do with getting off to a good start. Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, Thor: The Dark World, Bored To Death) as director is a match made in heaven, plus some stellar talent amongst the cast, let’s just hope another shonky performance from Schwarzenegger doesn’t bring the film to its knees. Terminator: Genisys hits theaters July 1st, 2015.
