Reboots and remakes are happening at a faster and faster pace, and while technically the reboot of Terminator would have been Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, the fifth Terminator is taking things in a whole new direction all over again. With the hugely expensive Terminator Salvation not raking in the numbers that were expected, one of the 80s and early 90s best sci-fi/action franchises is making another run with Terminator: Genisys. Already teased with an intense and epic trailer, fans can tell that the fifth instalment is definitely not just another Terminator film, it’s going to switch things up from the cast, to the plot to even the timeline and hopefully blow audiences’ minds. Here are 5 Things To Expect From Terminator: Genisys.
5. Directorial Excellence
Terminator: Genisys is going to have a slightly different take on the franchise so far and after the rights for the franchise sold in 2010, a new direction was taken, beginning with a new director. Alan Taylor may not be a household name but odds are you have already seen his work as he has done several episodes of hit shows like The Sopranos, Rome and Game of Thrones. His big break undoubtedly was Thor: The Dark World, which had its share of criticism but was still a massive hit. Although Genisys will only be Taylor’s second foray into a huge and highly anticipated action film, he has already won fans over by comparing his take on the Terminator franchise to another HUGE fan-favorite franchise, Batman. “I think there’s another famous franchise that had a wonderful beginning and then turned a little bananas… Tim Burton’s first Batman is just glorious and by the time it got around to nipples on costumes and all that stuff it sort of lost its way,” he told Slashfilm.
