Recently EW shared the first ever images from Terminator: Genisys, and for such a highly anticipated release, the images were not very well received. However, along with the images came plenty of info on the new film.
Now comes another look at Arnold Schwarzenegger as an aged T-800, found hidden in the Paramounts studio lots, and Tweeted earlier this week. Arnie certainly looks the part, and the makeup effects look pretty decent, don’t you think?
