The first trailer for the highly-anticipated Terminator Genisys that debuted last month showcased Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 battling himself, with the aging Terminator trying to stop his younger counterpart who is sent back in time to 1984. The Terminator Fans have uncovered new details about this fight sequence, which is currently being reworked since Skydance Productions is reportedly unhappy with some of the shots in the scene. Instead of bringing Arnold Schwarzenegger back for reshoots, they "will create a CGI digital older version of Schwarzenegger for the fight." Here's what the site's source had to say about the fight sequence.
"The battle will be better then the T-800 and T-1000 from Terminator 2. The ground will break on the wrestling fight."
The fight has been described as, "an unstoppable force meeting an immovable object" and the site reveals that the Terminator from 1984 won't even have time to find clothes before dealing with the aging Terminator, who crew members have referred to as "The Guardian." Here's a description of part of this fight scene:
"The young digitally enhanced T-800 is doing a forward lunge double fist punch and/or crushing the aged T-800's face with both its knuckles pile-driving into the real Arnold Schwarzenegger's metal skull, like something out of a wrestling match. The aged T-800 has its left arm locked under the T-800's right shoulder as if it is going to make a deadly move on the younger T-800. The sequence or choreography could change in the finished product but what we've seen looks good! The moves will be devastating and the battle will probably be one of the most spectacular scenes in the movie especially in the VFX department. The young T-800 is unclothed as he does this attack on the aged T-800, while the 3D model of the aged T-800 is wearing the clothing in the Trailer scene when he tells 'The Terminator' that he has been waiting for him... This is the equivalent of Tanks colliding, the machines are heavy. Battle damage is an obvious issue when Terminators Fight."
Both of the Terminators will sustain heavy damage, although The Guardian will eventually emerge victorious. He will ultimately heal over time and eventually become the grey-haired, "grumpy" Terminator that serves as a surrogate father for Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke). The site also mentions that they will recreate the 1984 Terminator by using the original molds taken by Stan Winston during the first Terminator movie, which will provide an "extremely accurate" likeness.
