The new 'Terminator Genisys' trailer

The Terminator franchise is back and we think it has a thing for casting 'Game of Thrones' leading ladies

Video: Terminator Genisys

Sarah Connor is by far Emilia Clarke's biggest silver screen role, and from the little we can see in the Terminator Genisys trailer, she is as fierce and good a leader as ever. This reboot follows how John Connor (Jason Clarke from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney; set to play Boomerang in Suicide Squad) back in time to save his mother Sarah's life, with the help of Terminator model T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger).

Emilia plays Daenerys Targaryen, the mother of dragons in Game of Thrones. Now she also plays Sarah, the mother of the resistance. We'll point out that Emilia's GoT co-star Lena Headey (hey, Cersei Lannister) once played Sarah Connor in Fox TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Granted, Terminator needs badass leading ladies and Daenerys and Cersei are fine examples of that.

Terminator Genisys opens in cinemas here in just three months, on 2 July, 2015. So far, after spotting J. K. Simmons (Whiplash) in a different clip, the only big name cast member we're yet to get a peek at is Doctor Who star Matt Smith.
