First images land for Terminator: Genisys

The first batch of official images for Terminator: Genisys has arrived online courtesy of Entertainment Weekly , showing off the cast in all their heavily-armed glory.

The new shots show Emilia Clarke and co toting some serious weaponry, while pleasingly, there’s also a look at Arnold Schwarzenegger back in action as everyone’s favourite cybernetic badass.

Meanwhile, Clarke has expanded on the notion that her character was brought up by the T-800. “Oh, she’s just a normal girl growing up in a world with a Terminator for a dad,” laughs the star. “What was her first date like? Did he kill many of the dates she brought home?”

Not that Connor will be entirely deprived of love interest, with Jai Courtney confirming that his character, Kyle Reese, will have a romantic storyline with Sarah.

"I had never fallen in love on screen before," says Courtney. "It was interesting to do that, especially when you’ve got a backdrop of the future and the past and all this other shit… endoskeletons, robots…”

Directed by Alan Taylor and co-starring Jason Clarke and Matt Smith, Terminator: Genisys will open in the UK on 3 July 2015.
