Watch our exclusive Arnold Schwarzenegger video interview about his return in Terminator Genisys!
Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as the T-800 in this week’s Terminator Genisys, a return to the feature film franchise started in 1984 with James Cameron’s original The Terminator. Directed by Game of Thrones and Thor: The Dark World helmer Alan Taylor, the new film stars Emilia Clarke as a very different Sarah Connor who has actually been raised to fight by Schwarzenegger’s T-800, mysteriously sent back in time to watch over her.

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. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…
