TERMINATOR GENISYS Image Featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800

Those first few images from Terminator: Genisys didn’t go over too well, but a new one just surfaced.  There isn’t much to it and it also isn’t an official Paramount Pictures release (yet), but it is far more promising than those ridiculous looking EW character shots of Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke and Matt Smith. The film opens on July 1, 2015 and also stars J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi and Byung Hun Lee.

According to TheArnoldFans.com some German bloggers who were touring Paramount Studios spotted this promo poster in “a darker corner.”  Clearly there isn’t much to it and it doesn’t even say Terminator: Genisys anywhere, but if this really is the T-800 we’re getting in the movie, I’m all for it.

Even if you manage to look past the fact that the whole yelling theme of the EW character images is downright ridiculous, the tone and color palette of those shots are still a major problem because they suggest the filmmakers might be focusing too much on putting a fresh spin on the material rather than honoring what made the series so iconic.  Of course this is all just promotional artwork and we won’t really know what’s coming until the studio unveils the first trailer, but the darker, grittier feel to this Arnie poster does spark more hope after the first look campaign failed to impress.
