* ContentLeak:
** An audio clip of on-set dialogue recorded during production of the film was eventually leaked to Youtuber Mr H Reviews, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOKWkANd3xg who revealed that]] [[spoiler:as a result of timeline alterations, Skynet is no more, and has been replaced by a similar AI named "Legion", as per dialogue between Grace and Dani]]. That twist isn't listed anywhere in the official marketing.
** The same source also leaked an apparent plot summary, which included [[spoiler:an opening sequence where [[TheHero John Connor]] is killed off in a flashback by a T-800 while hiding out with Sarah in Guatemala. The Terminator in question, having fulfilled its primary objective and having no further purpose, decides to integrate himself into society and takes the name "Carl", which is where Dani, Grace and Sarah later find him, having built his own business in the interim]].


* ChannelHop: Zig-zagged. Paramount remains distributor in North America after ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'', but international distribution is handled by Creator/{{Disney}} through Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox due to Cameron's involvement (he is doing the ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' sequels for them) and the buyout of Fox by Disney.


* TheOtherDarrin: Child actor [[https://www.theterminatorfans.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Brett-Azar-Jude-Collie-Terminator-2019.jpg Jude Collie]] plays a young John Connor, who was played by Creator/EdwardFurlong 28 years before in ''Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay'', though his role is more of a TimeshiftedActor, given that Furlong has been confirmed to reprise his role.



** Creator/EdwardFurlong was eventually revealed to return as John Connor, 28 years after ''Judgment Day'' and 23 years after ''Race Against Time'', thus making the first actor to play John in more than one film in the franchise.



** Creator/EdwardFurlong [[https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/edward-furlong-return-john-connor-195744777.html returns as John Connor]], 28 years after ''Judgment Day'' and 23 years after ''Race Against Time'', thus making the first actor to play John in two films.


* DarkhorseCasting: Surprisingly, in spite of being a big-budget reboot to an [[Franchise/{{Terminator}} iconic franchise]], this is utilized. Other than Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger and Creator/LindaHamilton reprising their roles and Creator/MackenzieDavis joining the cast, the rest of the cast is much less known. Natalia Reyes, who plays one of the main characters, has had only ''two'' film roles prior to this and both of them were indie films released within a year from each other(one of them being the critically acclaimed ''Birds of Passage''). Most of her other screen credits were telenovas [[NoExportForYou that have never aired outside of Latin America]]. Gabriel Luna is primarily known for playing the [[ComicBook/AllNewGhostRider Robbie Reyes]] incarnation of ComicBook/GhostRider on ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'' and nothing else. Diego Boneta has had roles in ''Series/{{Scream Queens|2015}}'' and ''Film/RockOfAges'', but that's about it.[[note]]Outside the English-speaking world, his one role of note was playing Mexican singer Luis Miguel in a Spanish-language Creator/{{Netflix}} {{biopic}} about him, which admittedly was widely sucessful across Latin America.[[/note]] Jude Collie, who replaces Creator/EdwardFurlong as young John Connor, has an empty [=IMDb=] page. Contrast that of ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'', which had plently of well-known actors, such as Creator/EmiliaClarke, Creator/JasonClarke, Creator/JaiCourtney, Creator/MattSmith, and Creator/JKSimmons.
* DuelingWorks: The film comes out two months after ''Film/RamboLastBlood'', another grittier and R-rated installment from an action movie franchise that originated in TheEighties and starring the other major action movie star from that time, Creator/SylvesterStallone. Both also see the return of an [[CharacterAgedWithTheActor aged protagonist]] of the franchise, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and John Rambo (Stallone again), who stills kicks ass left and right.
* FlipFlopOfGod: Creator/JamesCameron considered ''Film/TerminatorGenisys'' as "the true third film" of the franchise back in the day. Comes ''Dark Fate'', ''Genisys'' is now AlternateContinuity[=/=]CanonDiscontinuity.
