Terminator: Genesis is the first in a trilogy that will rewrite the history of Skynet and the events seen in the first four films. Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his role as an aging T-800, with Emilia Clarke taking over the role of Sarah Conner, Jason Clarke playing her son John Conner, and Jai Courtney starring as Kyle Reece.
