Five 'Terminator Genisys' Character Posters Are So Metal

Five character posters for Alan Taylor's Terminator Genisys have just hit the web and they are so metal. Not "metal" in that rocking, awesome way though. I mean literally. Four of the five feature either a terminator, or a piece of a terminator, suggesting the July 1 release is going to be very, very heavy on the metal-to-metal action.

Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future...
