Paramount Pictures have revealed the first full TV trailer for their upcoming science-fiction film Terminator Genisys just a few days ahead of the spot's Stateside début during the ad breaks of the Super Bowl XLIX event taking place over the weekend. Helmed by Game of Thrones' Alan Taylor and starring his Thrones cohort Emilia Clarke (or Danaerys, as Westeros' residents know her when they're not too busy attempting to avoid death by dragon-fire) in the pivotal role of Sarah Connor, this fifth cinematic chapter in the time-hopping franchise of part-dystopian, part-epic (in the most literal sense of the generic term) will seemingly erase the narrative continuity of all of its predecessors - the dreadful Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines included, with any luck - in the hope of kick-starting a rumoured trilogy wherein the past, present and future of the planet Earth as we've come to know it on-screen so far will be up for grabs.
Before moving on any further in our analysis of the latest video preview for a blockbuster which we're unashamed to admit ranks as our Most Anticipated Film of 2015 thanks to the refreshingly radical nature of its premise, the all-star cast of talented thespians lined up to take on its leading roles and the unmatched strength of its initial teaser trailer, though, it's necessary at this point for us to acknowledge that this secondary glimpse doesn't offer much in the way of new material. That said, Super Bowl viewers (or anyone like ourselves who found themselves compelled enough by the teaser to hang around) can catch some never-before-seen (well, until hordes of fans flocked online yesterday to watch this particular clip, of course) footage from Genisys between the four- and fourteen-second marks as well as a couple of aesthetically spectacular explosions by waiting just eighteen or so seconds, both of which should provide more than enough in the way of reasons for sceptical and more open-minded Terminator followers alike to take a look below so as to further inform their viewpoint on whether or not the series can fulfil its potential for the first time since Judgement Day arrived in 1991.
Terminator Genisys will offer audiences the opportunity to come along for the ride "if they want to live" this July 3rd in UK cinemas nationwide. In the meantime, stay tuned to On-Screen for all of the latest info, TV spots, leaks and the like...
