It's easy to be a tough guy when you're up against an eager drumming student, J.K. Simmons, but when a Terminator gets thrown your way, well, it's a different story altogether! Yup, Mr. "Whiplash" himself is looking awfully nervous in this trailer for "Terminator: Genisys," and honestly, who could blame him? It's still not particularly clear what's happening, but here are a few things we know for sure.
First of all, Emilia Clarke doesn't need dragons to be a fierce mama. The trailer is jam-packed with winks and nods to previous movies in the series, such as when Sarah Connor (Clarke) announces, "Come with me if you want to live!" Arnold Schwarzenegger quotes himself ("I'll be back!") and even comes face to face with his younger, body-building self. There are also plenty of visual callbacks that eagle-eyed "Terminator" experts will make note of. As for the rest? Shooty things and melting robots and Jason Clarke and whatnot. Cool? Cool.
"Terminator: Genisys" opens July 1.
