Proposed Preamble that might make Terminator Genisys more palpable:
Forget everything you know. Sort of kind of I mean. The first 2 movies were really good right but since most of you in the audience are millennials you all probably thought they were ok but looked old. So we’ve just redone some of those sequences but like cooler and with update FX. Back on point, forget but remember what happened in those first two movies because you kind of need to know but don’t need to know it. Either way we’ll explain it. It’d really help if you watched a lot of Star Trek because there are timelines all over the place and yeah there might be plot holes all over the place and if you think too hard it’ll make zero sense, so don’t. It’s all good we have a great director who knows how to film big action sequences and they’ll be fun, we promise! Oh and did we mention that Arnold freaking Schwarzenegger is back, giggle, and we totally explain why it’s ok that’s he’s old. He’s hilarious! We couldn’t explain Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn being old so we replaced them with the mother of freaking dragons! OMG she’s sooooo hot, probably not believably tough, but look at her china doll features! And come on look Jai Courtney, he’s like a warm plate of vanilla ice cream, it’s not great but it ain’t bad either! I almost forgot about Jason Clarke, he’s like super important, but I think we finally nailed a grown up version of Edward Furlong! We knew you couldn’t wait for a pretty good twist, so we just told everybody because, come on who hates waiting! So thanks for giving us a shot on your July 4th weekend, its hot outside and who wants to see stupid fireworks, we’ve got our own and I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy our movies a lot more than you thought you would! Enjoy!
P.S. We threw in JK Simmons because he like won and Oscar and insures my house! Probably should have used him more because he’s hilarious!
