Arnold Schwarzenegger James Cameron Alan Taylor

The eagerly awaited 'Terminator: Genisys' is finally imminent, and all fans of the original 1984 movie are likely to be happy with the results. Arnold Schwarzenegger opens up about how this new instalment combined elements of old and new to tell this alternative story.

'Terminator: Genisys' is arguably one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year. While initially it seemed like a sequel verging on the out-dated and maybe a little cringe-worthy, the authentic adherence to the first film (but with an unexpected twist) really seemed to get everyone excited. Here we see Kyle Reese transported into the past in a bid to protect Sarah Connor, but finds she's already being protected - by the double of the very adversary he was sent to fight.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Worked Out 'Twice As Hard' For New Terminator Movie To Replicate 1984 Physique


Arnold Schwarzenegger Alan Taylor

The champion bodybuilder-turned-actor, who portrays the titular cyborg, works out daily, but he had to put in the extra effort and put on a little more muscle in order to look just like he did 31 years ago, when the first Terminator film was released.

He tells U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America, "What was interesting was, I work out every day. I do my weights, I do cardiovascular training and so on, but when I started working on this movie in the pre-production, the director came to me and said, 'I want you to have the same frame you had in 1984', and so I had to literally gain 10 pounds.

"So I worked out twice as hard, twice as heavy; I did two hours of weight training every day. And then of course, worked endlessly with the stunt coordinator and with the stunt people to do all the fight scenes and choreographing all this stuff (sic)."

Emilia Clarke Cast As Sarah Connor For 'Terminator' Reboot

That's right, there's going to be a remake of James Cameron's timeless 1984 sci-fi The Terminator. An inevitability considering how popular the series remains to this day, but one that no-one wanted nonetheless. On the bright side, Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clark has just been cast as Sarah Connor, so at least the eye candy has been sorted out with.

The Variety report goes on to state that Clarke tested alongside Brie Larson for the role, but Clarke managed to edge ahead of the 21 Jump Street actress in the screen tests.
