‘Terminator: Genisys: Paradox Edition’ Makes The Terminator Timeline Even More Confusing

When a story centers around time travel, inevitably that story will become somewhat… convoluted. And as you keep adding chapters to that story, it just gets moreso. So comedy troupe the Auralnauts decided to use a little voice acting and a little clever editing to highlight just how absurd the Terminator franchise has gotten.

The essential thrust is that John Connor has just started sending back random Terminators for giggles, something the trailer reinforces with clever use of a whole bunch of Arnold clips. Here an Arnold, there an Arnold, everywhere an Arnold, as it turns out.

Also, we agree with them completely. Shaking the hand of your unknowing father while he’s butt naked probably is the single most awkward experience we’ve ever seen. That is definitely a situation in which eye contact is captured and held no matter what, because the alternative is potentially an eyeful of dear old Dad’s junk.

So we know what at least some people think of the trailer. We’ll find out if the movie is any clearer July 1st.
