Sorry, "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" and "Terminator Salvation" it seems you two have just been terminated by filmmaker James Cameron. Or, at least, that's what can be gathered from this new featurette for "Terminator Genisys," the upcoming fifth chapter in the blockbuster sci-fi action franchise.

In the video, Cameron enthusiastically endorses the new movie and graciously declares it as "the third film" in the series. "I feel like the franchise has been reinvigorated; like this is a Renaissance," Cameron says in the clip. "The new film, which in my mind, I think of as the third film, we see Arnold take the character even farther."

Cameron, as you probably know already, conceived the first two movies, but have remained creatively uninvolved with the franchise since "Rise of the Machines." And while the upcoming "Genisys" sequel also didn't involve Cameron -- the film was directed by "Game of Thrones" helmer Alan Taylor and written by screenwriters Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) -- it does have what the last two sub-par sequels didn't have: Cameron's stamp of approval.

The 3D film -- which opens on July 1st -- sees Schwarzenegger's aging Terminator model assuming a more fatherly role to Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) while an alternative timeline has changed their 1984 past, as well as the future. It now seems Sarah's son, John Connor (played by a face scarred Jason Clark), has turned into a sort of Terminator/human hybrid who is out to murder his mother -- and perhaps his father as well, hero resistance fighter Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney).

The year is 2029. John Connor ( Jason Clarke), leader of the resistance continues the war against the machines. At the Los Angeles offensive, John's fears of the unknown future begin to emerge when Tech-Com spies reveal a new plot by Skynet that will attack him from both fronts; past and future, and will ultimately change warfare forever. On the verge of winning the war against Skynet, Connor sends his trusted lieutenant Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back through time to save his mother's life and ensure his own existence. But what he finds on the other side is like nothing he ever expected.

After being orphaned at age 9 by a Terminator, Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) has since been brought up by another Terminator Model 101 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) programmed to protect her. This Terminator has then trained her to face her destiny, which she adamantly tries to reject.
