We all know a title says a lot about a film. It sets up the tone, anticipation, and it sometimes tells us something about the movie itself. But today’s title confirmation for the fifth Terminator film will have fans talking.
The film recently wrapped shooting, and to commemorate the occasion, star Arnold Schwarzenegger took to Instagram to celebrate by announcing the official title, which was once thought to be Terminator: Genesis. The actor posted a photo confirming that the movie will instead be titled Terminator: Genisys.

And here is what Schwarzenegger had to say:
Hasta la vista, baby. I want to thank the cast and crew of @TerminatorGenisys 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.
Now that the title has been revealed, we can discuss why it is possibly spelled Genisys, and not Genesis. The one reason that will probably stick out most is that Genisys is probably some sort of computer program that Skynet builds to use against the humans, or possibly vice versa. In fact, that is the only reason why I could think Paramount would put a misspelled version of the word Genesis in the title. Unless those damn Chick-Fil-A cows had something to do with creating the new title.
Directed by Alan Taylor, and written by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, Terminator Genisys stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Dayo Okeniyi, Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee and J. K. Simmons. It opens July 1, 2015.
