Yep, Khaleesi's Still Badass In 'Terminator'

by Alanna Bennett

Yeah, yeah, you know it's that time of year again: All those fancy, uber-expensive Super Bowl spots are making their rounds. So far, we've seen Kim Kardashian playing with her image humorously, Insurgent promising an explosive film... you get the drill. But, Super Bowl spots aren't all shiny celebrities: There's also the traditional run-through of all the upcoming films that Hollywood is dishing out the most cash for. Case-in-point: Enter the new trailer for Terminator: Genisys .

I gotta admit, so far the trailers for this film have me way more interested than I thought I'd be by an umpteenth Terminator movie. Perhaps it's the presence of Emilia Clarke, who seems to be delivering a not-too-shabby version of Sarah Connor and proving that she can be a badass beyond the confines of Game Of Thrones, without her dragons. Or, maybe, it's just that I can't help but laugh every time the trailer adds in a shot of Arnold Schwarzenegger from the original Terminator movie, as if we forgot he was in that one, too.

This movie could very easily be a miss, but at least it look like a romp. It hits theaters July 1, 2015, and stars Clarke, Schwarzenegger, J.K. Simmons, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Dayo Okeniyi (The Hunger Games), Matt Smith, and Byung Hun Lee. Check out the trailer below.
