Fire & Photoshop Engulf the New Poster for 'Terminator: Genisys'

April 30, 2015

Terminator: Genisys

It looks like Paramount Pictures isn't going to be shy at all about the major plot twist that was revealed in the last trailer for Terminator: Genisys. A new poster for the sequel/reboot has just been revealed, and it puts the new Terminator (and his surprising identity) front and center amidst some fire and pretty terrible Photoshop. They couldn't figure out a better background than that plain gray, Sears portrait studio color scheme? There's already so much fire around Arnold Schwarzenegger and company, why not just engulf the whole poster in flames? And by that, I mean it should be set on fire, because it's just awful. Look below!

Here's the new poster for Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genisys from Yahoo:

The Visit

You can still watch the most recent trailer for Terminator: Genisys right here.

Terminator: Genisys is directed by Alan Taylor ("Game of Thrones," Thor: The Dark World) and written by Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry). Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Byung-hun Lee and Matt Smith all star in the film that takes a completely different approach to the Terminator timeline, finding Sarah Connor orphaned and being raised and trained by an aging T-800 Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) as Kyle Reese (Courtney) is sent back in time from the future again on a new mission. Paramount Pictures & Skydance release the film this summer July 1st.

      I think it WILL Be worse.
    • TheOct8pus
      Yeah. Like if they photoshopped Adam Sandler dressed as a clown into the poster....
  • cuckoozey
    This looks like something you might've found in the old Blockbuster Video clearance bin.

      'Yeah, no late fee, just keep it."
  • OfficialJab
    I hate this movie.
    • TheOct8pus
      Haha!! Me too! And we haven't even seen it.
  • Chris Groves
    Yeah, not a good poster. On another note, Emilia Clark can easily pass for like, 10 years younger than she actually is.
  • Steve
    This is so frustrating. Between dumping that "I'll be back" money shot in the first trailer, and now sacrificing a HUGE plot twist for a cheap visual, I just give up. It was never gonna be a masterpiece, but I feel bad for whoever put work into this script. Clearly the marketing folks are too busy selling sizzle to notice they're burning the steak like Judgement Day playground children.
    • TheOct8pus
      Good analogy....appropriate
  • Brian Sleider
    Shocking how they are making me not care at ALL about one of my favorite movies series. Like, This might be some of the worst marketing EVER.
  • Isn't that poster giving away a huge plot twist??? Wow. Just trainwreck central. It's going to bomb hard.
    • Enola
      You can choose not to see the trailers, but the posters are everywhere. Should have kept that spoiler away from the public in all forms and shapes...
  • TheOct8pus
    Arnie looks crosseyed.
  • Eggyweggs
    Who the effing nora made this, the same douche that made those God awful Avengers posters!?
  • Oriyan J. Ovadia
    SO. BAD.

    I purposely didn't watch the last trailer and one stupid look a this poster made that pointless.
  • Nielsen700
    They apperantly learned nothing from the marketing of Terminator Salvation...
    • ryderup
      Terminator Salvation had great looking marketing. From its posters to that amazing third trailer. EDIT: And it's motion poster of the city turning into a T-800 skull.
      • Nielsen700
        I meant in the "spoiling who's a terminator"-department.
  • TK
    Hmmm this is a terrible poster. It's just too much and the gradient in the back is horrible. Would have been better off just doing the titles on black and leave all these character filled posters out. Get's too messy. Individual character posters are always the way to go.
  • Trey Wilson
    Jayzzzussss.... I could do better. And I don't even own Photoshop. Terrible.
    Wait so, ByungHyun is Clarke? Clarke is ByungHyun? Tripping me out.
  • rusty
    Her breasts are massive here, a solid F cup if you can make out the volume their implying. Somehow she gained 8+ lb's in her chest for this poster.
    • davidshaw
      "they're, dumbass
      • rusty
        Use capitals and periods moron; at least try to be a literate grammar troll. Stupid.
  • davidshaw
    I don't care, I just want to know who Matt Smith is playing
  • Scarlett Witch
    Poster sucks ass!
  • MaqueeStalker
    I get that everyone's mind was blown when they introduced T1000 in T2, but I feel like they keep using that same ploy. "Terminator is back, and now he is bigger, badder, more CGI Stuff, WOW, BE EXCITED". This movie looks like it will be terrible. Not to mention trying to explain the other incoherent time line plots while giving room for this one. Bleh. Please stop.
