This week's print edition of Entertainment Weekly will give fans their first look at the highly-anticipated Terminator Genisys, with two collectible magazine covers featuring Emilia Clarke (Sarah Connor), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese), Jason Clarke (John Connor) and Matt Smith as a mysterious character.
The magazine's report also confirms previous reports that this reboot will revisit certain moments from the Terminator franchise, but told in a much different way. The story is set in the year 2029, where the Future War is still ongoing as John Connor leads the human resistance in the battle against Skynet. Just like in the original 1984 classic The Terminator, John sends Kyle Reese back to 1984 to save his mother Sarah from the Terminator before she gives birth to John. Instead of the innocent Sarah from the first movie, Kyle finds a much different Sarah, who was orphaned at just nine years old after another Terminator killed her parents, and she was actually raised by Arnold Schwarzenegger's "aging Terminator", whom she calls "Pops" and was programmed to guard not kill.
Here's what producer David Ellison had to say about this version of Sarah Connor, who is described as a, "highly trained antisocial recluse who's great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion."
"Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen. But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, 'That's not what I want to do.' It's her decision that drives the story in a very different direction."
Check out the magazine covers below, and stay tuned for more details on Terminator Genisys.
