Yesterday, we showed you the world’s first look at a brand new motion poster for the upcoming Paramount release, Terminator Genisys, as well as the news that the first trailer for the film will be released this Thursday (December 4th). However, not ones to sit back and let the hype train pass them by, Paramount has released the first footage of the film in form of a fifteen second trailer tease to promote tomorrow’s big event.
It’s only four shots, but the teaser offers plenty of tidbits to dissect.
First of all, there’s some sort of new liquid metal Terminator. However, we don’t know its model and whether or not is pre or post dates the T-1000 and T-X, both of which had liquid capabilities. Then there’s what could very well be the time machine that makes the entire franchise possible. If so, this is a huge deal because it would be the first time the series’ time device has been featured on screen (not counting Sarah Connor Chronicles, of course, which currently sits in an alternate universe where Terminator 3 and Terminator Salvation never took place).
Next, we have a shot of a bunch of nukes going off. Given what we know of the franchise’s style, we’re willing to bet that’s the image that will kick off the film with some voice over narration by one of the Connors or Kyle Reese. Of course, all of this brings us to the final, heart-stopping image of the man himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800, rocking a skinless robotic arm. Of course that leaves us to ponder why his arm is missing skin, but that’s a question we’re sure the film will be quick to answer.
Overall, an excellent teaser with plenty for us to chew on before tomorrow. Good work, Paramount!
