Terminator: Genesis is one in a long line of rebooted film franchises of late, including Star Trek and Planet of the Apes. Sometimes the reboot works, and sometimes it doesn’t, but ]according to one of Terminator: Genesis‘ stars, this latest trip into the Terminator universe will definitely be worth watching.
In an interview with IGN Movies, Jai Courtney talks about his role as Kyle Reese in Terminator: Genesis, and his initial skepticism. Although, if he’s trying to win us over, referencing A Good Day To Die Hard probably isn’t the best way to go about it. Courtney says:
I’ve always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when [A Good Day to] Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, ‘Really? They’re gonna make another one?’ and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it’s healthy to have that [skepticism] because you want it to be something [special], you want to keep that eye for quality sharp.
