As if we needed anymore confirmation about how awesome Emilia Clarke is, Digital Spy has released an exclusive Terminator Genisys clip of her coming to Kyle Reese’s rescue.

This next movie in the Terminator franchise shows John Conner sending one of his most loyal soldiers, Kyle Reese, played by Jai Courtney (The Divergent Series), back in time in order to save his mother, Sarah Conner, played by Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), from Skynet, who had been planning her death since she was born. The world he finds though is a much different one than he originally thought.

In this altered past, Reese must team up with Sarah and an aging Terminator to fight against the destruction of the human race. They even come in contact with an altered John Connor. Sarah and Reese must find out what happened to him and work to return him back to his original self.

In the clip, Reese has just arrived in the past and is being hunted and is in need of clothes. He is running through a clothing store. We see him strap on some shoes with Velcro straps, definitely a sign that he is back in the 80s. Sarah Connor crashes into the clothing store and tells Kyle Reese to go with her if he wants to live.

Arnold Schwarzenegger will be returning to his role as the Terminator. Also joining Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney is Jason Clarke, who plays John Connor, Matt Smith (Doctor Who), and JK Simmons (Whiplash).

I haven’t been a big Terminator fan in the past, but I am looking forward to watching this film. What about you? Are you looking forward to this movie? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
