Paramount left it to Arnold Schwarzenegger today to unveil the next evolution in SkyNet grammatical convention: The forthcoming Terminator reboot has been officially titled Terminator: Genisys. That’s a slight creative spin on the name the project’s been known by, Terminator: Genesis, but maybe humanity spells differently in the new robot future. Schwarzenegger made the Instagram reveal this morning to his over 646,000 followers, prompting Twitter critiques from guardians of the English language while also launching the film’s official Instagram account, @TerminatorGenisys. Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Dayo Okeniyi, Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee and J.K. Simmons also star in the Paramount/Skydance pic, which opens July 1, 2015.
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.
