The first trailer for Terminator: Genisys landed online last night.

Already, it's sparking controversy with old fans and new alike, firmly splitting the audience in two.

The new trailer shows Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke in the role of Sarah Connor, albeit slightly different looking because she's not Sarah Hamilton obviously.

Divergent's Jai Courtney plays Kyle Reese, played by Michael Biehn in the original while Arnie is still Arnie.

Why are we bringing up the original film? Fom what we can deduce from the trailer, this is one giant reset button for the series.

All those weird inconsistencies and time-loops? Gone. Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 was sent back when Sarah Connor was a little girl and - get this - RAISED HER AS HIS DAUGHTER.

She's now this bad-ass, armoured truck-driving lady who saves Kyle Reese.

Not only that, we see a new T-1000, played by Korean actor Lee Byung Hun, going around doing the whole metallic thing.

So, initial thoughts? At the very least, it's fun.

Terminator: Salvation took itself WAY too seriously and was actually kinda dull. Alan Taylor's a decent director and it's great to see Arnie back in the role that made him.

It's when we get to Jai Courtney that we run into trouble - he's a piss-poor actor and looks horribly miscast in the role. Does nobody even remember the train-wreck that was A Good Day To Die Hard?!

The image of Arnie diving out of a helicopter to head-butt it is pretty amazing and there seems to be a real reverence for the first two films.

Sure, some people might say "Oh, it's just T1 and T2 combined!"

To which we say, "Your problem with that is?!"
