For one day only, the original 1984 Terminator was back.
Arnold Schwarzenegger strode onto the CinemaCon stage Tuesday in full original Terminator attire, complete with wrap-around sunglasses, black leather jacket and attitude.
“I told you, I’ll be back,” Schwarzenegger intoned.
The former California governor, 67, promised “big, big box office” for the restart of the franchise with Terminator Genysis, which opens July 1.
“We all know the first three Terminators, the ones I was involved in, the only ones that count, made a billion dollars worldwide,” Schwarzenegger said. “It’s going to be big. And I tell you one thing: I would not have gotten involved unless I knew they were going in the right direction.”
