First Look at Stars of 'Terminator: Genisys' Reveals Major Twist

Entertainment Weekly has the first look at the awkwardly spelled Terminator: Genisys with a pair of covers featuring stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Matt Smith and Jason Clarke.

The magazine also reveals a major plot twist in director Alan Taylor's film, the first in a planned trilogy from Paramount Pictures:

Sarah Connor isn’t the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton’s steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991’s T2. Rather, the mother of humanity’s messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she’s been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger’s Terminator—an older T-800 she calls “Pops”—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who’s great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.

And apparently that's only the beginning, at least as far as the twists are concerned.

Opening in July, Terminator: Genisys stars Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Matt Smith as John's close ally and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator.
