New Terminator: Genisys Poster Still Full of Bad Choices


No, it’s not this. But maybe it should be. At least WWE used practical effects…


I’ve put the actual poster below the fold, for the benefit of those who avoided the last trailer when you heard there was a big spoiler in it…if indeed there are any of you left. And honestly, if it’s in a trailer, or on the official poster, it’s fair game for a site to talk about. I don’t know why I’m being extra-nice today.

Point is, the poster also has Asylum-level title graphics and a generic, computer-generated “nuked city.” The new Terminator might actually be a good movie – longshot, sure, but it might – but the way it’s being marketed, you’d never know.

The “spoiler” character, though – he looks like a good test shot for a potential movie of Top Cow’s The Darkness, no?
