"Terminator Genisys" is back with a new television spot that includes the first footage of J.K. Simmons as Detective O'Brien, who injects a bit of humor into the scenario.
"I know what's going on here has to be really, really complicated," he tells Emilia Clarke's Sarah Connor, who responds, "We're here to stop the end of the world." "I can work with that," O'Brien fires back.
Directed by Alan Taylor, the franchise reboot is billed as a remix of the 1984 original, with resistance leader John Connor (Jason Clarke of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes”) sending loyal soldier Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney of “Divergent”) from the post-apocalyptic future back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother Sarah (Emilia Clarke of “Game of Thrones”) from a Terminator programmed to kill her.
Opening July 1, "Terminator Genisys" also stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matt Smith and Byung-Hun Lee.
