7 Aug – Even the spelling and pronunciation of his name is tough enough, and now Arnold Schwarzenegger has revealed on Instagram that the new title for the upcoming "Terminator" movie is weirdly spelled as "Genisys", which sounds like it was derived from the word, 'Genesis'.

This is what Arnie posted on his Instagram:-

"Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of Terminator Genisys for a fantastic shoot. It was challenging, it was fun, and it was rewarding. From our director to the producers, from the camera team to catering, from visual effects to hair and makeup - we couldn't have done it without you. I can't wait to see our finished project and I know we'll remind the fans why they fell in love with the Terminator. On July 1, 2015, I'll be back."

The project which was formerly known as "Terminator: Genesis" has now officially been changed to "Terminator: Genisys" and it is not a typo.


Schwarzenegger posted a picture of him wearing the leather jacket with bullet holes from his previous "Terminator" film, sitting in a set chair with the name of the film shown on the back.

Many fans have speculated that there might be a deeper meaning in the spelling which many are still trying to figure out.

One of the famous speculations is that 'Genisys' could be the combination of the word 'Genesis' and 'System', 'Genesis' means beginning, which means that the new "Terminator" arc could be about the birth of computer system; a plot tease that the film could be about the creation of Skynet.


Will the new "Terminator" impress?

The film is directed by Alan Taylor, who previously directed "Thor: The Dark World". Schwarzenegger will be acting along Emilia Clarke from "Game of Thrones" as Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke from "Dawn of The Planet of The Apes" as John Connor.

Other cast includes Jai Courtney, Matt Smith, Dayo Okeniyi, Lee Byung-hun, J.K Simmons, Sandrine Holt, Michael Gladis and Douglas Smith.
