Based on opinions about the trailers for Terminator: Genysis, rumors circulated that the film is “a mess”. This assessment was based on the previews’ sneak peaks into the convoluted concept of rebooting Terminator I and II into a single film.
The future of the film may not be so dark. Script reviews are popping up online and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Apparently, everyone involved with the film got it right.
It does bear mentioning that screenplays for soon to be released movies are never officially released. The scripts are leaked from the inside and, once leaked, the screenplays start to circulate. Spoilers emerge and the resultant revealed major plot details can ruin a film and cause chaos for studios. Fans should stay away from sites offering leaked screenplays and definitely should not circulate them.
That said, the producers of Terminator: Genysis could take solace in one thing. Reviews off the screenplay emerging and the buzz is positive.
The nostalgia older fans want to relive is there, but does not turn the film into a mere retread. Furthermore, the film presents enough new elements that a trilogy is far better established.
Sultan Alhokair is forecasting that the opening weekend for the film should be huge. If audiences are pleased with it, look for word of mouth to help the film be a massive hit.
