The fifth feature film installment of the Terminator franchise is both a reboot and the first of a new trilogy of films. Emilia Clarke will play Sarah Conner, the role originated by Linda Hamilton and Jai Courtney will be Kyle Reese, better known as the father of Sarah’s only child and leader of the human rebellion, John Conner. Arnold Schwarzenegger will portray the Terminator.
 
Unlike the original series, Sarah Conner was orphaned at age 9 and raised  and trained to work a sniper rifle by the Terminator, played by an older T-800 Schwarzenegger. “Pops” as she calls him is programmed to protect her instead of the killing machine he is more famous for. 
 
“Since she was 9 years old, she has been told everything that was supposed to happen,” Ellison told Entertainment Weekly. “But Sarah fundamentally rejects that destiny. She says, ‘That’s not what I want to do.’ It’s her decision that drives the story in a very different direction.” 
 
Filming began in mid-April 2014 in New Orleans and continued on to San Fransisco and Los Angeles, California for a total of 4 1/2 months. The new film will follow a different timeline as the first four movies, with some of the original parts recast.
 
Despite the sub-par domestic box office (only $90 million against a $150 million budget) and negative critical reception, Terminator: Genisys is doing surprisingly well overseas. Because of this development, Paramount Pictures has yet to pull the 6th and 7th films from their slate.
 
In December 2013, it was announced that a new television series will go into production, with very close tie-ins with the new trilogy as well as critical moments in the original 1984 film with the series taking a completely different direction.
