The other day we were lucky enough to show off the covers from the upcoming Entertainment Weekly that features the stars of Terminator Genisys. The  new film will be directed by Thor: The Dark World‘s Alan Taylor and features the talents of: Emilia Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matt Smith, Jason Clarke, and Jai Courtney.

Today, we have even more images from the film and an official synopsis. The film seems like it’s going to be a pre-sequel, a la the newest Borderlands game.

Here’s the Official Synopsis:

The beginning of Terminator: Genisys … is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post-apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save ­Connor’s mother, Sarah, from a Terminator programmed to kill her so she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like what he expected.
