UPDATE: First look at Terminator: Genisys and its horrible plot

So we're just ignoring the previous films then

UPDATE: We've gotten some more images of the super angry/squinty EW shoot, and I...yeah I have nothing for this. Check them out in the gallery. 

I think we all could see this coming when they named the film Terminator Genisys, but according to the plot description in the latest edition of EW this reboot of the franchise is going to be doing some really dumb meddling with the story line of Terminator. As in Arnold's T-800 will be Sarah Conner's father. Yea...

Sarah Connor isn't the innocent she was when Linda Hamilton first sported feathered hair and acid-washed jeans in the role. Nor is she Hamilton's steely zero body-fat warrior in 1991's T2. Rather, the mother of humanity's messiah was orphaned by a Terminator at age 9. Since then, she's been raised by (brace yourself) Schwarzenegger's Terminator—an older T-800 she calls "Pops"—who is programmed to guard rather than to kill. As a result, Sarah is a highly trained antisocial recluse who's great with a sniper rifle but not so skilled at the nuances of human emotion.

So we're basically ignoring all the other Terminator films then. I guess time travel is involved so... Pops? Really?

Along with this bit of prolific groan-worthiness (Did they learn nothing from Salvation?) we got our first look at the leads from the film and they look hella generic. I'm not sure what Terminator's look should be, but I'd like a bit more creativity here. Emilia Clarke is Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney is Kyle Reese, Matt Smith is not the Doctor and Jason Clarke plays John Connor. They all look pretty, well, bland.
