It seems someone was caught texting with director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) after a few too many drinks and autocorrect went wild resulting in Terminator 5 not being titled Terminator: Genesis as was previous speculated, but instead Terminator Genisys. Along with that we have an Instagram picture featuring star Arnold Schwarzenegger as the film has official wrapped production.

Schwarzenegger returns as an older Terminator and he’s joined by Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung Hun Lee and Matt Smith as a new character said to have a strong connection to John Connor.

Obviously the title will have something to do with some computer program or company within the film as you can see the logo on the screen in front of Schwarzenegger in the photo below, but that didn’t stop me from having a little fun with it.

Terminator Genisys (a title I continue to spell incorrectly) is set for a July 1, 2015 release.


And here’s the photo caption:

Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenisys for a fantastic shoot. It was challenging, it was fun, and it was rewarding. From our director to the producers, from the camera team to catering, from visual effects to hair and makeup – we couldn’t have done it without you. I can’t wait to see our finished project and I know we’ll remind the fans why they fell in love with the Terminator. On July 1, 2015, I’ll be back.
