Legendary Writer Director James Cameron concieved and launched the 'Terminator' franchise with the 1984 original, before returning with 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' in 1991 but had nothing to do with 'Terminator 3' or 'Terminator: Salvation', the latter of which even Schwarzenegger says "sucked". But in a new promotional video for the latest film in the franchise "Terminator: Genisys", Cameron himself sits down to publicly back the film even describing it as the real "Terminator 3".

Describing the film as "I feel like the franchise has been reinvigorated... this is a renaissance", Cameron goes further to sell a film he has no stake in by saying "If you love the Terminator movies, you're gonna love this movie". High praise indeed.
