Action-packed teaser for ‘Terminator Genisys’ released – watch

Arnold Schwarzenegger returns for the fifth 'Terminator' film, which opens in cinemas on July 1

An action-packed new teaser for this summer’s Terminator Genisys has been unveiled by Paramount Pictures – watch it below.

The fifth instalment in the Terminator series sees Arnold Schwarzenegger return to the iconic title role for the first time since 2003. He is joined by Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke, who takes on the role of Sarah Connor made famous by Linda Hamilton, as well as by Whiplash‘s JK Simmons, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke and former Doctor Who star Matt Smith.

Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) directed from a screenplay by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry). The film was shot between April and August of last year (2014) in New Orleans and San Francisco, using an estimated production budget of $170 million (£110 million).

Terminator Genisys is set to open in cinemas on July 1, 2015. The franchise’s last instalment, Terminator Salvation starring Christian Bale and Sam Worthington, opened in 2009 to poor reviews and performed relatively disappointingly at the box office worldwide. Bale admitted last month (December) that his Terminator film “didn’t work”.

Meanwhile, Schwarzenegger appeared to confirm last month (February) that he’ll be back for a sixth Terminator film due to start shooting in 2016.
