films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise,
is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human
rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes.
John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader
of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his
loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in
the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s

The film also stars Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee, Dayo Okeniyi, Courtney B. Vance, and J.K. Simmons.
Terminator Genisys is out in the US on 1st July 2015 and in the UK on 3rd July 2015.
