With Terminator Genisys just days from release, everyone is preparing themselves for another battle in the War Against the Machines. Proving that you don’t have to have the last name Connor or Reese to pick up arms, YouTube stars were recruited by the T-800 himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, to help stop a T-1000 and get one step closer to preventing Judgement Day.
Filmed at YouTube Space L.A., Terminator Genisys: The YouTube Chronicles is a three-episode anthology that features some of your favorite YouTubers. Episode one, shown above, is hosted by Machinima. Episodes two and three, presented down below, are hosted by Tobuscus and IISuperwomanII, respectively.
IISuperwomanII’s channel also has a special video from virtual reality company Specular Theory. It is a 360-degree video from the perspective of the Terminator as he hunts for the YouTube stars.
Keep a look out during episode one, where Ricky Hayberg and Eliot Dewberry actually do what you are supposed to when put in this situation: RUN.
Terminator Genisys: The YouTube Chronicles was written by Jay Bushman. It was produced by Heresy, and directed by Charles Paek and Rob Gilbert. Click these links to check out Machinima, Tobuscus, and IISuperwomanII’s YouTube channels.
