The Trailer for Terminator: Genisys Has Arrived!

After 2003's Terminator 3, the latest installment in the Terminator franchise, Terminator: Genisys marks the return for Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role. And now we get our first look at what the 2015 prequel/sequel/reboot (?) is going to look like.
Accompanying the completey recast lineup of characters, with Emilia Clarke for example now taking on the role of Sarah Connor, Terminator: Genisys is hard to directly identify as a reboot or as a prequel to the franchise.
The movie obviously seems to build on top of the foundation laid out by the first two succesful movies, yet it aims to completely change and rewrite them in terms of how the story played out. This is easily just as interesting as it is dangerous to alienate longtime fans of the franchise.
The trailer makes Genisys seem like a mix between the storylines of T1 and T2 with new paths mixed in. Therefore, moments like the young Arnold-Terminator from T1 (with a shot of young Arnold being somewhat shamelessly just ripped out of the original movie), or another (now Asian) T-1000 being the antagonist, definitely give reason to be concerned about how many actually new ideas Genisys will bring to the table.
Additionally, Arnold somewhat seems to have trouble in convincing to still be a death machine even with his now old-looking physical appearance.

We will see whether our doubts are justified when Terminator: Genisys hits theaters Juli 1, 2015.
