    I think Emilia Clark will cope with Sarah Connor role greatly. She is a brilliant and promising actress, so she will do her best. I am happy to hear that Arni is back to his favorite robot character role and that the new Terminator is seeing the screens on July 2015. Well, it is still much time till this date, but I am happy the date of the release is set already. It means I am looking forward to it with much anticipation!
