Action star turned California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger is “back” as the famed Terminator ,and Sunday brought hundreds of Camp Pendleton Marines and their families the first U.S. screening of his new potential blockbuster, Terminator Genisys.
The “Governator” got in a couple of selfies with attendees as his presence pumped up the energy of the crowd, local Fox 5 reported. But Schwarzenegger made sure to bring words of thanks for the work of United States military service members, crediting the military for making possible the only country where an Austrian immigrant could achieve such fame as he has.
“A military that defended this country and made this possible, the land of opportunity and the greatest country in the world,” he told the crowd, according to local ABC News affiliate 10 News.
Closing with his famous line, “I’ll be back,” Schwarzenegger is not kidding. The intense action film is headed for theaters July 1, with two sequels already in the works and release dates set for May 2017 and June 2018, according to Breitbart News.
