A new extended TV spot for Terminator: Genisys has been released online, featuring our first real look at J.K. Simmons’ detective character.

The "Help" TV spot (which looks more like a mini-trailer to us) has a tiny spark of humor to it amid the chaos, thanks to Oscar-winner J.K. Simmons’ character, Detective O’Brien, who shares a great line with Emilia Clarke’s (Game of Thrones) Sarah Connor. There’s also some darker stuff coming straight from the mouth of Sarah’s son John (Jason Clarke) -- "It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. There's a storm coming. And it won't be stopped" -- as well as new footage and some shots that look like they're right out of a previous Terminator film. Check it out:

Here’s a detailed synopsis:

The beginning of Terminator: Genisys, the first of three planned films that Paramount hopes will relaunch the beloved sci-fi franchise, is set in 2029, when the Future War is raging and a group of human rebels has the evil artificial-intelligence system Skynet on the ropes. John Connor (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Jason Clarke) is the leader of the resistance, and Kyle Reese (Divergent‘s Jai Courtney) is his loyal soldier, raised in the ruins of post apocalyptic California. As in the original film, Connor sends Reese back to 1984 to save Connor’s mother, Sarah (Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator programmed to kill her so that she won’t ever give birth to John. But what Reese finds on the other side is nothing like he expected.

Terminator: Genisys stars Arnold "I'll be back" Schwarzenegger, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-hun Lee, Courtney B. Vance and J.K. Simmons. It is set to be released on July 1. What did you think of this new extended promo? Are you looking forward to the newest entry in the Terminator movie franchise?
