Terminator Genesys
A new trailer for "Terminator Genisys" is set to air during Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, Feb. 1.

The 30-second clip packs tons of action, and features an aging Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising his role as the T-100, which was sent back in time (again) to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) since she was a little girl.

Old Arnold meets up with young Arnold -- the first Terminator sent back in time to kill Connor -- and says, "I've been waiting for you," as he fires a sawed-off shotgun at the version of himself that time-traveled and arrived back to 1984, thus changing the original film's sto...
