Terminator Genisys is set to be one of this summer's biggest blockbusters. And it is riding a current wave of nostalgia that is seeing quite a few revivals at the box office, including Jurassic World and Mad Max: Fury Road. But it's one of the few upcoming movies to include its major franchise star at the core, with Arnold Schwarzenegger set to reprise his legendary role as the unstoppable T-800 Cyborg. This will mark the first time he's played the character since 2003's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. He had to miss out on Terminator Salvation, because he was Governor of California at the time. But don't think he's bother by that at all. About not appearing in the movie, he quite boldly states:
"Thank god. It sucked!"
Terminator Salvation is an anomaly in the franchise, as it was the first and only movie not to include Arnold Schwarzenegger. The actor was on set for some of the shooting, and even lent his likeness to the film, which resulted in a creepy-looking digital Arnold showing up in the third act as his iconic T800 character. The film was meant to reboot the franchise, moving forward into the future without Schwarzenegger's involvement. But fans and critics alike didn't care for the movie as much as Warner Bros. had hoped. They lost the franchise rights, and now we're getting Terminator Genisys, which puts a spin on the original trilogy timeline and has Arnold Schwarzenegger back at the center of the action.
Good Morning America caught up with the action legend as well as Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney and Jason Clarke. The team talk about time travel in the following video. And Arnold Schwarzenegger is asked if Terminator 2: Judgment Day is the best movie in the series. He responds:
"I really can't say that. The three that I was in? They all three had their own little personalities and interesting storylines."
