Arnie's back in Terminator Genisys trailer

THE trailer for Terminator 5, or "Genisys" has arrived.  

It is the second film of a new Terminator series that appears to act as both a sequel and a reboot to the outings in the 1980s and 1990s.

This latest run began with Terminator Salvation in 2009.  

Following the template of those that came before, Genisys begins in 2029, a time when human-killing cyborgs are on the verge of wiping out the human race.  

A human soldier is sent to the past to protect Sarah Connor, the mother of humanity's future hope John Connor.  

Sarah is played by Emilia Clarke -- Daenarys from Game of Thrones.

Only unlike the previous Terminator offerings, Arnold Schwarzenegger has already arrived to protect her.  

In light of a new Star Wars and James Bond film to compete with, Genisys will have some stiff competition.  

And so far, excitement for the new film has been fairly muted.  

But with James Cameron reportedly involved in the writing room, this could be the film that firmly puts the Terminator franchise into the present and ensures its own future.
