Arnold Schwarzenegger said "I'll be back," and he stayed true to his promise. He is coming back in "Terminator: Genesis." The 5th installment of the movie franchise will be released next year.
Recently, Schwarzenegger spoke with MTV and gave a lot of hints about the upcoming movie. The actor admitted that it has become more challenging to do action movies now that he is 66 years old, but the actor remains unfazed. The last time Schwarzenegger played T-800 was in "Terminator: Rise of the Machines" back in 2003. The problem is that robots don't age, so how will this movie approach that?
Schwarzenegger explained: "The way that the character is written, it's a machine underneath. It's this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator's flesh ages, just like any other human being's flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages."
When MTV asked him if a young or old Terminator will be seen in the movie, Schwarzenegger answered with a little spoiler: "Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800... and then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets ahold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie, but I feel so good."
Schwarzenegger continued to share that he wanted to be in "Terminator 4," but his obligations didn't allow him. "I was upset that I couldn't be in the fourth Terminator, because I was Governor. So they did the fourth one without me, it made me cry a little bit. But I did say, 'I'll be back,' so now I'm back again and it's going to be really terrific."
Yes, the original Terminator is definitely back this time around. And you can see "Terminator: Genesis" on July 1, 2015.
