Dir. Alan Taylor
Arnold Schwarzenegger returns to the franchise that made him an international superstar. Is it a reboot? A sequel? A straight answer has yet to come out of director Alan Taylor regarding this topic (Thor: The Dark World, “Game of Thrones”), nor has the public learned the reason for the title’s spelling of “genisys” to date. All the other familiar principal roles have been recast with new up-and-coming stars. Schwarzenegger costars with Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones,” Dom Hemingway), Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Lawless), Jai Courtney (Divergent, A Good Day to Die Hard), Matt Smith (“Doctor Who,” “Party Animals”) and J.K. Simmons (the Spider-Man trilogy, Burn After Reading).
