Arnold Schwarzenegger talks Terminator: Genesis

Compares it to Terminator 2 in tone

Arnold Schwarzenegger is all set to reprise his role as the Terminator in forthcoming reboot Terminator: Genesis, and has compared the film to Terminator 2 in terms of tone.

“It is going to have the exact same feel,” says Arnie. “The way it reads, it has the same feel of Terminator 2. It’s big. There’s hardcore action and it has some really great visual effects in there, but not over the top.” 

“It’s not a Thor type of movie, even though it’s the same director. It has good special effects, but just enough to say, ‘Wow, where did that come from? How did they do that?’”

Meanwhile, Arnie seems rather chuffed to be getting the chance to return to his most iconic role, comparing the character to the likes of Batman or James Bond…

“I think that it’s just so wild to have a franchise that has been around for that long, and then after 30 years, to get asked again to be the only character in a movie that is the same character is unheard of, in movie history.”

“You always switch out, like with James Bond and Batman, but not here. That, to me, is an extraordinary situation and a great opportunity. Of course, I was honoured when I was asked to come back and play the character.”

Directed by Alan Taylor and co-starring Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney, Terminator: Genesis will open in the UK on 26 June 2015.

      Well, according to the latest TF issue, T2 is now a 4-star movie. Shame on you TF!

      I still wanna know how they're gonna pull this off. Short of using CG, it's impossible to hide Arnie's age now.

      Sounds like CG will play a part to make him look younger. I was appalled by this to start with but hearing the idea that the timeline will be rebooted Star-Trek style is a great idea and the casting is good too, Emilia Clarke is a great fit for Sarah Connor and I think Jai Courtney will make a good Reese too.
