Terminator Genisys Trailer

For this week in taking back to my childhood, we got our first trailer to Terminator Genisys. I wanted to do a walkthrough like the Star Wars The Force Awakens trailer but rather, I figured I'd take the route of what each movie brings to the franchise in the realm of what the humans want versus what the machines want prior to the events of Terminator Genesis.
  • Terminator 1 - Save the birth of John Conner to save humanity / Kill John Conner to win the war
  • Terminator 2 Judgement Day - Save John Conner and prevent Judgement Day / Kills John Conner to win the war
  • Terminator 3 Rise of the Machines - John Conner the leader's origin story / Remove John Conner's might
  • Terminator Salvation - Kyle Reese origin story / Destroy the hope of humanity
After watching the Terminator Genisys trailer, I get the strange suspicion that they are merging the first three Terminator movies by showing the need to send Kyle Reese, the T-800 and T-1000 models back in time to kill John Conner and prevent Judgement Day. While it is too soon to tell, we get all of these original elements from Kyle going back to save Sarah Conner, original Arnold in his protective roll versions Terminator 1 Arnold and the knife throwing T-1000. We also get lots of random robot destruction along the lines of Terminator 3 so we shall see. screenshots of my favorite parts of the trailer are below.
