New Terminator Film Title Confirmed As 'Genisys'
A good day for fans, a bad day for spelling

For months now we have been calling the in-production new Terminator film 'Genesis'. Well, it turns out that we were all a little wrong. It will in fact be called 'Genisys', as confirmed by an Instagram from Arnold Schwarzenegger's personal account.

We can only hope and assume that this title has some sort of meaning beyond being a funky spelling of an actual word. Perhaps there's a reference, in that "sys" suffix, to Cyberdyne Systems. Does the "gen" refer to generations? Or genes? After all, some people must have been used as the models for the Terminators in the first place, so maybe it's about their genes. We're hoping, in any case, that it's more than simply an attempt to be down with the cool kids by showing a flagrant disregard for the normal rules of English spelling.

In any case, the cast and crew of the film are extremely promising. In addition to Schwarzenegger himself, the film stars Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke (no relation) as Sarah Connor (a relation), JK Simmons, Jai Courtney, Dayo Okeniyi, Matt Smith and Lee Byung-hun. Thor: The Dark World's Alan Taylor is directing, from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. Terminator: Genisys will arrive in UK cinemas on June 26, 2015 and in the US on July 1.


What do you think of the new Terminator subtitle?
Looks fine to me; I am yntrygued!
Please, the spelling, it burns the eyes!

This tastes like an epic fayl.
Not a good sign, if you ask me. This will be another PG-13 sleep-inducing trainwreck of a movie. There were two great (brilliant) TERMINATOR movies, never to be bettered. End of story. More

It'll be some terrible pun on Generation Systems, referring to the Terminator AI program and Skynet. More
