Empire’s cover feature wants your clothes, your boots and your undivided attention. Thirty years after he first clanked menacingly onto our screens as The Terminator, Arnie is back as a T-800 in Terminator Genisys, a fresh retooling of James Cameron’s sci-fi actioner helmed by Alan ‘Thor: The Dark World’ Taylor. We headed to Hollywood to talk to Schwarzenegger, Taylor and producer/driving force David Ellison to deliver the most comprehensive analysis of the new Terminator this side of the Cyberdyne servers.
The film is set to open July 1 and also stars Emilia Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, and Matt Smith.
