There it is folks, the endorsement that will surely get everyone second guessing every negative thing they’ve said (or written) about the upcoming Terminator Genisys, an endorsement from franchise creator and the director of The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991), James Cameron.
In a newly released featurette Cameron discusses the new film, which he says he considers the third film in the franchise, and how it has reinvigorated the Terminator franchise while being very respectful of the films that came before it. Most notably he seems impressed by the idea of turning John Connor (Jason Clarke) into the villain, something that clearly shouldn’t be considered a spoiler, but merely a plot detail that guides the story.
Check out the featurette below if you’re looking to be sold on the film. I don’t see this one until June 29, only two days before the film’s release, which typically isn’t a good sign and just one more thing that continues to cause lowered expectations, but one thing is for certain, Cameron can sell a film.
