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 could be worse.

No, it could not.

Exactly my thoughts. 🙂

I think it WILL Be worse.

Brian Sleider on Apr 30, 2015


Yeah. Like if they photoshopped Adam Sandler dressed as a clown into the poster....

This looks like something you might've found in the old Blockbuster Video clearance bin.

'Yeah, no late fee, just keep it."

Chris Groves on Apr 30, 2015


I hate this movie.

OfficialJab on Apr 30, 2015


Haha!! Me too! And we haven't even seen it.

TheOct8pus on Apr 30, 2015


Yeah, not a good poster. On another note, Emilia Clark can easily pass for like, 10 years younger than she actually is.

Chris Groves on Apr 30, 2015


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.

Good analogy....appropriate

TheOct8pus on Apr 30, 2015


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.

Brian Sleider on Apr 30, 2015


Isn't that poster giving away a huge plot twist??? Wow. Just trainwreck central. It's going to bomb hard.

Sascha Dikiciyan on Apr 30, 2015


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...

Enola on Apr 30, 2015


Arnie looks crosseyed.

TheOct8pus on Apr 30, 2015


Khaleesi is going Terminator bowling.

The Mother of Terminators

Danimal on Apr 30, 2015


I purposely didn't watch the last trailer and one stupid look a this poster made that pointless.

David Diaz on Apr 30, 2015


They apperantly learned nothing from the marketing of Terminator Salvation...

Nielsen700 on Apr 30, 2015


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.

ryderup on May 1, 2015


I meant in the "spoiling who's a terminator"-department.

Nielsen700 on May 5, 2015


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.

TK on Apr 30, 2015


Jayzzzussss.... I could do better. And I don't even own Photoshop. Terrible.

Trey Wilson on Apr 30, 2015


Wait so, ByungHyun is Clarke? Clarke is ByungHyun? Tripping me out.

DAVIDPD on Apr 30, 2015


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.

rusty on Apr 30, 2015


"they're, dumbass

davidshaw on Apr 30, 2015


Use capitals and periods moron; at least try to be a literate grammar troll. Stupid.

rusty on May 1, 2015


I don't care, I just want to know who Matt Smith is playing

davidshaw on Apr 30, 2015


Poster sucks ass!

Scarlett Witch on May 1, 2015


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.
