Earlier this week, Paramount Pictures released a slick motion poster for Terminator Genisys, and confirmed another report that the trailer will be released on December 4. The countdown has finally come to an end with our first look at this thrilling sci-fi action sequel, directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World). Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his triumphant return to the Terminator franchise, reprising his role as the T-800, but as you can see in the footage below, this is a much different Terminator than we've seen in the past.

Jason Clarke plays John Connnor, who sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back in time to keep his mother, Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) safe before John is born. Unlike the naive and innocent young woman played by Linda Hamilton in the 1984 classic The Terminator, Kyle finds a much different Sarah. She was raised by an aging T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) she calls "Pops," after a different Terminator killed her parents when she was just nine years old.

Matt Smith, J.K. Simmons, Douglas Smith, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung-hun Lee and Michael Gladis co-star in what will surely be one of next summer's most highly-anticipated summer blockbusters. Check out the footage below, and be sure to mark your calendar for July 1, 2015, when Terminator Genisys explodes into theaters.
