    Coming from a huge Fan of the series

    by eric haislar

    I am not really all that impressed. Does not seem like the same type of film. I will hold off on judgment, but I have a feeling T2 will still be the best in the series.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:42 p.m. CST

    Looks promising

    by Outlaw

    I'm still not all that confident in McDouche...but I hope he proves me wrong.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:42 p.m. CST


    by LaserPants

    This trailer has been up for months! FUCK! You and me, we're done professionally. Fuckin' ass.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:42 p.m. CST

    Yeah this is going to kick some ASS

    by riddleman1674

    Wasn't the same trailer they showed at Wondercon, but that's not me bitchin' haha. Amazing! I'm willing to forgive a PG-13 smack for a good story. 3 months and ticking....

  • March 2, 2009, 3:44 p.m. CST

    How come it's an old link?

    by Mr. Profit

    That trailer I got was old.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:44 p.m. CST

    Also how is that kid Kyle Reese?

    by eric haislar

    Seems nothing like Michael Biehn performance.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:44 p.m. CST



    The only thing I need to know

  • March 2, 2009, 3:45 p.m. CST

    Yeah, that kid looks nothing like Kyle Reese

    by Light_Tweaker

    It would've been cool if they had cast someone who bore a resemblance to Michael Biehn.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:46 p.m. CST


    by Wrecks

    um... december 11th

  • March 2, 2009, 3:47 p.m. CST

    Again WTF?

    by Mr. Profit

    Are you people seeing something different? Because I see the same trailer from before.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:47 p.m. CST

    T-2 after all these years still looks better


    CGI in general is the bane of the movie industry

    by Carpet_Pisser

    Is that confirmed?

  • March 2, 2009, 3:48 p.m. CST


    by chuffsterUK

    Thats the fucking old trailer!

  • March 2, 2009, 3:49 p.m. CST

    I was at Wondercon and I can tell you...

    by Robot_Chicken_Fried_Steak

    That was not the trailer we were shown. The one we were shown was way better!

  • March 2, 2009, 3:49 p.m. CST

    yeah, old trailer

    by Jarek


  • March 2, 2009, 3:50 p.m. CST

    Is there a new trailer?

    by Light_Tweaker

    I haven't been able to find one.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:50 p.m. CST

    Uh oh, bad sign...

    by Autodidact

    I think I see a dirtbike jump in the trailer for this movie. I sure hope not, because if you're not Andy Samberg you better not have a dirtbike in the trailer for your movie.

  • March 2, 2009, 3:50 p.m. CST

    Holy shit!

    by allykatD

    This looks incredible, and the beginning music sends shivers up my spine. Oh yeah, I'm definitely there for the midnight showing.

    Old Trailer

    It says it was put up on Dec. 11, and I vaguely remember watching this already? Am I going crazy?

    by chuffsterUK

    A near to month old trailer!Come on Harry,get with it! You even state that it's trailer number one in your article! We're waiting for trailer number TWO!

  • March 2, 2009, 3:53 p.m. CST


    by Carpet_Pisser

    I know T2 is regarded as some great piece of cinema...and I am gonna get flamed mercilessly for this, but it really is not that great. The whole idea of a good terminator is fucking weak. This should be about humans vs. machines. I don't care if they reprogrammed it to protect John and stroke him off when he got too tense, there is no way anyone would trust one. Just wouldn't fucking happen. And the whole, I don't have a Daddy, so this Terminator will be my new Daddy...bullshit. T1 > T2. The only thing T2 had on T1 was better effects (we all thought that the T-1000 was balls back in 91) and Robert Patrick was cool as hell as a terminator. T3...I agree was made just to cash in, but I will give it one thing, it had the balls to end the movie with Judgement Day. That was a fucking cool ass ending. Instead of trying to make some larger point like in T2 that we make our own future, basically implying that humanity has a responsibility to think about it's actions for future generations...yada yada yada. It is a fucking Terminator movie.

    ... isn't that the trailer from December? I think the one that premiered this weekend has yet to land online. And now what's this rot about young Arnie? Hmmmmmmm?!

    by Gungan Slayer

    This is looking badass. I'm not saying it will be badass, but I will wait till I actually see the fucking film, before I start bashing McG again. I suggest you all do the same.

  • March 2, 2009, 4:33 p.m. CST

    Here's another version of the old one...

    by ahdvd

    Looks like a french version, english audio but with subtitles - doesnt have the same opening as the other one, but mostly the same apart from a few extra shots, including some close up shots of some robot Du2ibwLZsk8

  • March 2, 2009, 4:33 p.m. CST

    What the fuck? Thats the old trailer?

    by WhinyNegativeBitch

    What the fuck are you talking about Harry? Why are you posting this?

  • March 2, 2009, 4:33 p.m. CST that is a spoiler

    by Carpet_Pisser

    Maybe you should have your own site as AICN can't even find this, but instead finds a 3 month old trailer

  • March 2, 2009, 4:35 p.m. CST

    The LA Times is posting new stuff while AICN posts old trailers

    That's pretty funny.

  • March 2, 2009, 5:37 p.m. CST

    Didn't Quint do the same thing?

    by D.Vader

    He posted an OLD Friday the 13th trailer and claimed it was a new one. But instead of owning up, like Harry is trying to do, he just yanked the whole story. Heheh.

  • March 2, 2009, 5:39 p.m. CST

    What the fuck don't you understand?

    This Years Speed Racer or DVD Only Surely??

    by genrefanboy

    Looks so like this years Speed Racer but no wait at least that had some eye candy & geeky OTT quirks. This has what about $100M worth of ILM robots & other invisible FX work with bland cheap uninteresting actors in a PG13 tentpole. If they had one signature sequence we would have seen it by now but guess what the drama cupboard is bare and WB are desperate to recoup some of their loses on this one & you just know Transformers2 is going to stomp on this as its more family friendly than this dire effort.

    T2 was like a deflated balloon

    by Prossor

    It tried to reach and be this father-son allegory and ended up being a steaming bowl of dick. T3 was a b-movie and didn't try to be anything else and it achieved its intentions. T1 is the only classic of the bunch.

  • March 2, 2009, 5:54 p.m. CST

    Dirtbike's in T2...

    by Anakin Whoopass

    Am I seeing the new trailer? With John talking face-to-face with a Model 101 about being at war since before either one of them existed? Arnie looks pretty convincing to me. Too bad they cut off his answers but I guess real Arnie hasn't dubbed his lines yet?

  • March 2, 2009, 6:06 p.m. CST

    The Terminator movies mean only one thing to me

    by JayWells87

    Growing up with divorced parents, as a kid I'd go to my dad's on weekends, and on snowy or rainy ones we'd rent a stack of videos to watch. My dad loves westerns and action flicks, and the Bond franchise and the Terminator movies are flicks that remind me of my dad no matter what. Watching Terminator 1 and 2 for the first time as a 9 year old, then seeing T3 in the theater with him at 16 years later, some of the best memories I've had with the old man. I cannot wait to visit him and take him to a theater and see this. he and I both watched it online, and he sounds pumped. I really hope this delivers the goods. McG, please, please don't ruin this. Just don't.

    What's with the shitty music?

    by bta1138

    I'm hoping that's not in the movie. Not even in the end credits. I know Gn'R was in T2, but at least that song kicked ass! The movie looks pretty cool though. Much better than T3.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:22 p.m. CST

    Is like comparing Dylan to Manilow. Come back when you know something about music. It's not a matter of opinion, it's a matter of knowledge.

    Surprise, surprise, McG released a music video trailer.

    by Mr. Moe

    This is something made for teens, no doubt now that this will be PG-13.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:30 p.m. CST

    That was the dogs balls.. McG, a lotta people on

    by bongo123

    this site are gonna owe you one big fucking apology... that looks like a fucking terminator movie to me

    Best trailer music ever is Max Paybe

    by lockesbrokenleg

    which isn't even used in the final movie.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:31 p.m. CST

    THAT just earned this movie my $10

    by funnyhat

    Man I hope McG didn't use his music-video directing past and shoot scenes JUST for the trailer. But then again, anyone ballsy enough to use a single obscure nine inch nails song throughout a 2-and-a-half minute trailer earns my movie going money.

    Very Nice McG--This From Your Biggest Critic

    by Media Messiah

    I hated your work, thanks to the Charlie's Angels films, and that Rush Hour rip-off that you did for Fox TV...but over the years, since then, to my surprise, you have acquitted yourself with shows like Chuck and Supernatural, the latter of which, I am still not a fan of, but I recognize its technical prowess...and well executed structure. In fact, both shows have that technical prowess and well executed I must say that I am glad to see you make the turned away from the mess that is the Charlie's Angels films, to becoming a legitimate talent. Congratulations...and here's wishing you well with your future projects!!!

    The music was perfect, and it was nine inch nails

    by funnyhat

    That was Nine Inch Nails. Who the fuck said trent reznor sounds like the guy from nickleback? Go drown yourself! Probably one of the best acts of the last 20 years. not some 90's nickleback horseshit you ignorant fucks. go listen to lil wayne or slipknot or whatever. That song set the perfect tone for this movie, I don't see why anyone is complaining.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:35 p.m. CST

    You Fucktards

    by petedrinksduff

    It's not about if its CrapleBack or Nine Millimetre Penis', thats the whole point, it should have the Terminator theme. It's TERMINATOR!!!! Not a fucking band, thats MTV directives, and that dates a movie instantly, and those people are fucking up cinema! Stop going on about my knowledge of music and concentrate on the problem at hand! Crap Music in the Trailer. It didn't fit, and was a missed opportunity!

    It looks like a damn solid film. I'm the biggest advocate for more R-Rated films. But T2 was a pussy ass R. Don't pretend that shits all tough. Why-- cause of the tearing off of his arm? Stupid shit. Give me a solid story. Something Cameron knows fuck about.

    Music + Bale's charisma

    by daveyf

    The music is better than You Could Be Mine from T2.. that was cheeze even back then. As for Bale.. man does he bring the required gravitas to the role of John Connor-- humanity's savior.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:38 p.m. CST


    by funnyhat

    the fact that you are focusing on the song means you are missing the entire point of a trailer and are complaining just to complain. all a trailer does is set up the movie, with nice images, set to music. if that was the terminator theme for 3 minutes i'd shoot myself. quit bitching about the music.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:39 p.m. CST

    and don't even get me started on a ROBOCOP remake

  • March 2, 2009, 6:49 p.m. CST


    by petedrinksduff

    I thought thats why they call it "Talk Back". So you can voice your opinion on a subject. As far as i can remember, we're not in fuckin china are we? America still a free country right? We are allowed to say something is negative without getting our house burnt down and children stolen arn't we? And just cos i said i hated the trailer music, why do you lot always take it as a personal attack. For fuck sake!

    by im_a_lead_farmer_muthafucker

    After the first transformers movie trailer (which is similar to the second transformers trailer) and the Cloverfield trailers, I promised myself to never again go on a film on trailer alone again. The trailer looks awesome, which means it's only going to piss me off more if the movie is a piece of shit.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:53 p.m. CST


    by fknjeffoakley

    the song "dates" the movie? "the day the world went away" is around ten years old, and it certainly was not some hot mtv single. i don't think it even had a music video, but i could be wrong about that.<br><br>we could have had a predictable two minutes of terminator score, but instead we got a song that's epic and apocalyptic in its tone (both musically and lyrically) that fits the material like a glove. then, when the terminator theme kicks in at the end, it actually packs a punch. it's a lot more effective that way.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:55 p.m. CST

    More like Sal-i-vation

    by gotilk

    Seriously. Even if this turns out to be completely stupid (unlikely), this is looking like some outstanding eye candy. I think the talkbacker above is right. Someone(or a few thousand someones) owes McDirector an apology. From the Charlies Angels promotional material, I assumed he was a cokehead. Maybe he's just Bi-Polar after all, or naturally full of far too much energy. This and how much better Supernatural has been adds up to what I believe is a massive underestimation of the man.

  • March 2, 2009, 6:56 p.m. CST

    wow looks pretty good

    by virtual_ninja

    I thought the story line sounded kind of lame at first, but that trailer just blew me away, it looks really good and interesting with the cyborg story line. Sure its not James Cameron behind the wheele, but we get to see Avatar instead. Dont fuck it up McG!

    Looks sweet, but I miss practical effects

    by bullet3

    You know, the music and images are great here, but nothing packs the punch that seeing that rig go over the bridge in T2 had (or the heli/truck chase for that matter). CG effects just aren't the same, and you do notice the fakeness of the action here a bit. Hopefully they'll keep polishing it till release.

  • March 2, 2009, 7:02 p.m. CST

    and the music was decent.

    by IL_Deuce

    It fit. So quitcherbitchin'.

  • March 2, 2009, 7:05 p.m. CST

    Bullet3's right.

    by Aquatarkusman

    Post-nuclear graininess aside, I don't know how the mechanistic visual effects are any better than the Matrix, much less Transformers (and having that much CGI is much worse for 'realistic' action sequences), and apparently McG's gone back to the "let's blow up a bridge" standby from Charlie's Angels: Full Assload.

    But his movies are fun. Too bad his music is pretty much the same beat, over and over... and honestly.. how many times can someone say ...YEAH!.. per song? Don't know? Ask Rob. yeah... ask Rob... yeah.... beat.. yeah...guitar... yeah... <br> <br> Ah, the jeopardy of going with makeup. Look at it this way, soon he'll be golfing with Alice. That can't be bad.

( loved you in journeyman moon! loved you!) but y'know its not the be and all and end all. there seems to be enough action in the movie to keep fanboys happy. the thing i don't understand is why conner is surprised to see terminators in human flesh. is it me or does he seemed puzzled?

    T2 was R rated?

    by Bouncy X

    i ask because we in canada, especially back then, shared the same ratings. what was R rated in america also was in canada. but back then that meant you had to be 18yrs to simply enter the theater, none of that "be with someone 18 or older" like america does. so with all that said, i saw T2 in theaters multiple times and i was is everyone sure it was R rated? anyway, this trailer is cool....i was already gonna see this regardless but that definately made me anticipate it more.

    by LabattsBleu

    he's human? afterall, all the other terminators knew that they were robots? is he some sort of cyborg with a human brain? How would the machines control him? I dunno about this development...seems like it could be a reverse of T2, where the machine is looking for guidance from Connor...

  • March 2, 2009, 7:28 p.m. CST

    as a way of defending a movie. <p><p>if you call it a popcorn flick you are basically saying "a movie I would never watch in the theatre". I see GOOD movies in the theatre.

    Thematically the NIN is perfect, and sets the mood well. It was the first single released off "The Fragile" but the video never came out. Just do a search on Wikipedia for "The Day the World Went Away". For the Watchmen preview, Smashing Pumpkins' Grammy winning track "The Beginning Is the End Is the Beginning" was used. Again, do a Wikipedia search for more. Both excellent tracks from amazing bands perfectly suited to set the atmosphere for the respective previews.

  • March 2, 2009, 7:49 p.m. CST

    Fuck CGI


    They should have a rule in Hollywood that CGI is only allowed if the intended effect is impossible with practical. All modern movies look the same now. Where is the artistry that even T2 had so much of? All were going to get in Terminator Salvation is a decent movie that no one will remember with splashy fx that will be outdated 3 months after it will be released. 15 cgi choppers crashing doesnt have a fraction of the impact of the semi chase sequence in t2.

    defending 'popcorn flick'

    by funnyhat

    I always thought a Popcorn Flick was a spectacle film, a very visual movie you would want to experience in a theater. Kind of like seeing that movie @ home, whether in blu-ray with a home theater or watching on a PS2 in your dorm, would never be as cool as seeing it on a giant HD projector in a room with near perfect acoustics and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of AV technology. THAT is a popcorn flick to me. A rental is 'The Reader', a movie that isn't worth me and my girlfriend spending $30 at the theater. I'd rather watch a big splashy movie in the theater, no matter how good it is. If it even slightly piques my interest I'll pay to see it on the big screen with the loud speakers.

    Do you have a grasp on practicality? how do you think CGI advances? You want them to actually build these humoungous set pieces with outlandish shots that can only be done once because of budgets? How bout you build giant fucking walking robots with guns for shoulders, or motorcycles that can be hit by debris and keep driving at 100mph. That way they won't need CGI. In 10 years you won't be able to tell the difference anymore. Look at some of these video games coming out on PC with photorealistic real-time rendered environments, and you'll see in 10 years time the pre-rendered CGI used in movies will make practical effects shots for large set pieces nearly obsolete.

    by rhcp2sweet

    I just have a feeling that it won't look right. That type of shit is really hard to do and while this movie could possibly be the first to do it right (and they have a $200 million budget to back them up) I'll be really impressed and pray that Arnie comes back for the 5th movie when he's done with his whole governor thing

    by bullet3

    No, the moto-terminators have to be cg, but the flying hunter killer doesn't have to be. Cameron pulled those off with models back in T1, don't tell me they couldn't build a sweet model and properly green-screen it into the shot. At the moment, it does stand out and look fake, any way you cut it. Still, I'm not bashing this, I think the trailer is very cool, its those kinds of shots that pull you out of the movie.

    Charlies Angels 3

    by josskacer

    The HK bridge sequence looks ripped off from Charlies Angels 2, or was it part 1? Who fucking cares? Too much CGI, too many cheesy looking robots, too many fake looking explosions. This will suck and suck HARD. There is no reason for this movie to be occuring, the story was wrapped up with T2. McG and Uwe Boll and Paul WS Anderson should all get together and collaborate on Holocaust musical. Fuck T4.

    It was just like Abom said, they cut out that whole stupid fucking sunglasses scene out. It actually works a lot better with the goofy shit gone.

    That is true. Her character must be some sort of weird reveal. Like maybe she is some crazy ass witch sort of woman controlling the Terminators from some fortress. Remember McG said purists could hate the ending. Hhhhhmmmm. Interesting. I don't know if she is in costume in this shot, because she's wearing the same Hot Topic shit she wears everyday.

I mean every fucking article or movie review on this site always reffres to some "geeks hard on" or "geek giz". Find another way to articulate the fact that you loved the clip. The only thing the "Geek gizzing my pants" proves is that geeks even in todays day and age still can't get laid. On another note, I'm pretty psyched about the movie, but I have yet to see any "young Arnie" in there. As for T3, I actually loved that movie. It was different, but had a mutch darker and grittier tone then the previous movies.

    The scope is in non-existent. Everything is in a small contained space. That's the problem with these "franchises" these days. It used to be you put all your good stuff in a single movie. And if it was good, you then tried to make your best second movie. Now they spread it out over 3 films. lol. What a joke. Like it isn't hard enough to make one film good.

    I guess you're right, T1 was the darkest of them all. But allthough T3 had it's flaws, I just love that dark doomed ending. Plus the street scene with the crane was awsome. Was the movie different? As for TYes, but I have to say seeing how SKYNET spread over the internet, and just took over everything was way cool. As for T-1000 comment, I agree, this looks better. But let's not get ahead of ourselves, we're just judging my the trailers. Who knows, the lighting guy Bale was bitching at probably sabatoged the movie.

    looks really good actually

    by hegele

    I don't understand why people assume it should look like T1 or T2, i mean this is a post apocalyptic war movie, and the beginning of the resistance, i'd expect it to look more Road Warrioe than T1, which it most certainly does. As i understand it the war scenes in the previous films have all taken place years into the ongoing battle, when fighters are more scarce, their technology not as advanced (they look like they use guns in this as opposed to laser thingies) and where machines look less industrial and more cyborg. This seems like the steady precursor to that. Also, some mentioned this before, but i really admire the device of "Terminator thinking its a human and not knowing what it is really programmed to do". This is a wonderfully simple concept that doesn't feel cliche at all (unlike everything in T3). I love how Conner is the only one who knows how to deal with it too, since he's experienced them. I really hope Arnie and Hamilton comes on board and lend a hand, or their voice, or likeness. I'm looking forward to Elfman's score too. There are so many great aspects of this film, though McG still feels like a tumor. It really will take the opening day before i secure any real impressions. I don't want my excitement of another Terminator film to get in the way of a possible mediocre film (like T3). Though McG has certainly sold me on buying a ticket to this opening night.

    Behind the scenes of Bale's rant.

    by Se7en

    1. DP is famous for being hyper active person. He moves a lot, EVEN during scenes. This happened SEVERAL TIMES. 2. Bale couldn't take it anymore. He was talking to Bryce wearing armour, machine gun in one hand, a puppet terminator is by his side. Two people is holding this puppet. . He is to believe that the puppet is actually a threatening being from the future. In that odd circumstances, he bares his feeling to Bryce's character. 3. To make the above nonsense believable, he immersed himself IN THE SCENE, giving all out drama, for our viewieng pleasure. 4. Shane Hurlbut, well known as a hyperactive DP, interruptes the scene AGAIN by casually moving back and forth in front of the lights, IN THE MIDDLE OF A TAKE, hot dog in his hand. 5. Bale, JUST COULDN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. He flipped. 6. Shane doesn't apologize (that's all Bale wanted, an acknowledgement that Shane was wrong). Shane instead talks back, with an attitude of a surf dude. "I was just fixing the lights, man... sorry, dude... take a minute geez, talk a walk bro..etc", hot dog still in hand. 7. When Bale finnaly simmers down, he puts on a strap that holds his rifle to his chest, with the help of Tom. It came off during the rant. Bale's ready to continue. 8. While Tom's putting the strap, Bale is still talking (griping to himself mostly) looking down to the strap and rifle. He still complains. The mike still picks this up. But he wasn't talking to anybody at this time. 9. Bale gripes further, 'You don't understand working with actors'. 10. Shane still in talk-back mode (you can hear Shane talking back all this time in the background, even the crew is thinking 'shut the F up Shane, it's a rough night, we want to go home). Shane still refusing to acknowledge, says “No, what it is, is that I feel that the lights should…bla bla”. That was it. He says he was sorry before, but doesn’t acknowledge it in the next moment. Bale loses it. This is where he says “I’m gonna kick your eFfin ass.” 11. Shane apologizes again, but still talking back. The man doesn’t shut up. Hot dog in hand. 12. Bale admitted that he was wrong, but everyone on the set knew that Shane had it coming.) 13. Bale IS NOT a prima donna. His beef was with Shane only. Notice how he refers to his props person Tom with 'please' amidst all the temper towards Shane. 14. Everything is not a s it seems.

    "Young Arnold" story ...(spoilerz)

    by ReportAbuse

    "Though he's been a bit preoccupied with running California since T3, Arnold Schwarzenegger may make an appearance in Salvation. Reportedly, a computer-animated recreation of Schwarzenegger's face will be digitally grafted onto the body of Austrian bodybuilder Roland Kickinger (who played the young Arnold in a TV movie). McG is also in talks to have Linda Hamilton reprise her role as Sarah Conner in a voice-over that will tie the beginning of this movie to the end of T2." tinyurl. com /bsdswz

    **Possible Spoilers**

    by SnakesOnABicycle

    I if remember correctly AICN had a story report from TSalvation re: John Connor being killed, and the resistance creating a terminator replica of him for morale's sake. Sam Worthington's character seems to either be the partial truth of that rumor, or a harbinger for things to come. It would make sense they do this... suspecting the auidence would much rather see Bale as a terminator, or at least having terminator type powers, instead of just running away all the time from vastly physically superior beings. As far as Worthington's character goes I think he's probably programmed not to know he's half machine to better infiltrate the resistance. It makes sense. Arnie's terminator wouldn't need to be programmed that way since being sent back to a time where nobody knows about terminators. Worthington's model was probably superior than Arnie's model, but harder to control, hence the conflict for his character in the story. I do like one of the posts mentioning that there could be things sent from the future to TSalvation's present. However it looks like this new trilogy will focus on taking down Skynet, which can't culminate till part three, thus making Anton's Reese old and grizzled enough to go back in time and fight with Arnie's terminator. I think any glimpse we get of Schwartz's T-800 will be just that, a glimpse. I don't see how they can give it much to do, till part 3, unless they move Arnie's bad terminator being sent back in time to Salvation's second chapter, and the good reprogrammed Arnie back to chapter 3. It's all sooooooo confusing.

    by G100

    I for one would have been delighted if they had took the "realism" of Private Ryan etc. and fused it with the Terminator mythology into an Epic War Movie.<p> <p>This looks more promising than previously thought, but still, how much will be run from the robots/plot with the friendly robot and how much will be an all out War ?<p> <p>I think we pretty much know the answer to that already.

    Again, Marcus isn't a machine..

    by AnakinsDiapers

    First of all,it would fly in the face of all previous continuity if Marcus, an obvious prototype of some sort, showing the range of human emotion he is showing. Fear, anger, anguish, doubt, and determination, all in it's proper context. And that's just in the trailer. McG is swearing up and down that he's being respectfull to the Terminator mythology, so if he's not bullshiting then at this point in the war, a Terminator hasn't the ability to fake human emotion as well as Marcus is emoting. It looks like McG is trying to add to the mythology while respecting what has gone before. So Marcus can't be an A.I. The trailer itself points out a plot point in the movie: Skynet is capturing humans for some nefarious reason. Marcus is the result i'd wager.

    by jaddicoat

    Everytime something new from this movie shows up I get more excited. I'm more excited about this now than I am Wolverine - saying something there - and I think what most important to acknowledge about McG's Terminator is that it feeling different to T1 and T2 (and T3 obviously!) is very much a good thing. This could be the start of something incredible. I'm keeping a strong vigil over it for now and everyone else should too.

So were not gonna be seeing plasma rifles untill atleast the 2nd or 3rd movie.<P> And to whoever asked why Marcus thinks he is human? Well, the answer is that he "is" human. Someone just replaced his skeleton structure with that of a Terminator. He has a heart, Brain, internal orgrans, etc.<P> Lastly, if you still think that Connor dies and his skin is put on Marcus at the end... please go kill yourself... that is all.

    Is there a law that NIN must play in every other trailer?

    by rbatty024

    Because if there isn't, then congress should pass it by the end of the year. NIN convinced me to see 300 (which wasn't a good thing) and now I think they've just convinced me to see T4. <p> On a somewhat related note, the reason why this won't be better than T2, is because unlike T2, T4 will be mostly CGI. I can't blame them since the scope of the film requires it, but CGI will never replace actual stunts. Hence the chase scene in the storm drain will still own any kind of video game action McG's computer geeks have come up with.

    0:00-0:13 Rip-off from the fucking brilliant T2 teaser trailer that the late Stan Winston made. Just without the coolness and brilliant score.<p>0:14-0:41 Some nice footage mixed with some crappy scenes (like the hunterkiller-yard) <p>0:42-0:43 The T2 tow truck in ROAD WARRIOR dress<p>0:44-0:48 CGI motobikes (uncrewed, yawn) in a lame CGI stunt (double-yawn) <p>0:49-0:55 A robot from TRANSFORMERS (seriously, WHAT THE FUCK is that silly thing doing in a TERMINATOR movie?!?) plucking some humans like in THE MATRIX<p>0:56-1:28 Some kind of story element taken from BLADE RUNNER/BSG tv show/AI/younameit to add some "depth", I guess. <p>1:29-1:32 A building collapsing. Err...yes.<p>1:33-1:35 A silly shot looking like a zombie b-movie.<p>1:36-1:39 A lame fight scene plus some endoskeleton shots. <p>1:40-1:42 APOCALYPSE NOW bombing scene. Copied 1:1. <p>1:43-1:51 A guy crashing glass, a guy running, Bale shooting. Yawn.<p>1:52-1:53 A helicopter crashes. Wow. <p>1:54-1:55 A "reference" to T1. <p>1:56-1:57 Another "reference" to APOCALYPSE NOW. <p>1:58-2:09 Some random action and kissing sequences. No titties. Nothing too overwhelming, imho. <p>2:11-2:12 An explosion TAKEN FROM T3. WHAT. THE. HELL.?!?! <p>2:13-end Best part because Brad Fiedel's genius score kicks in. <p>Remaining questions:<p> Where the hell are the money shots? Why should I be excited?

    is that the promise of a few seconds of CGI never lives up to the hype in the theater. The more a camera lingers on computer generated imagery, the less convincing those images become. Hence, a great trailer can become flat in the theater. <p> That being said, I still have high hopes for this film. Sure, McG is a largely untested director with few wins in his career, but I'm still rooting for him. Just about everyone I know has wanted to see a future wars terminator film since they saw the first movie. What I've seen so far looks promising.

    I still don't get...

    by Motoko Kusanagi

    ...why we talkbackers should only discuss movies we've seen? Why not discuss a trailer, trying to figure out if the movie behind it is any good or not? <p>Isn't that part of the fun coming to this site? Discussing such things with other nerds like oneself and maybe rant just a little?

  • March 3, 2009, 8:27 a.m. CST

    Holy shit...I'm very shocked...this actually looks kickass!!!

    by Crimson King

    This movie might actually be good. McG might have actually pulled it off....We shall see.

  • March 3, 2009, 8:31 a.m. CST

    Awesome make the movie "R"

    by Rindain

    This looks to be the best blockbuster of the summer. I have no idea why WB is still hesitating over the R rating. After all the Matrix movies, 300, and even the mediocre T3 did really well at the box office. And Watchmen will surely clean up.

  • March 3, 2009, 8:50 a.m. CST

    Holy Terminators on the Earth!

    by Darth Valinorean

    That was visually and emotionally stunning! Bale adds credibility like there is no tomorrow (pun not intended) and McG is pulling it off. Screw the blessings of Cameron! I respect the heck out of the man, but that was a tad arrogant and now McG is making everyone respect the heck out of him. I am sure this is going to rock.

  • March 3, 2009, 8:51 a.m. CST

    Will never understand why he still uses the McG name.

    by Se7en

    Awesome trailer. Let's hope it's an awesome movie. Why he wants to be known and remembered (he is going to die one day like the rest of us) as McG is mind boggling. I guess he wants to be different.

  • March 3, 2009, 8:57 a.m. CST

    I don't know.

    by adolfwolfli

    I feel the look diverges too much from Cameron's vision. Some of the best parts in Terminator and T:2 are the flashbacks to the human-machine war, and how it's a dark, debris-strewn urban war zone, all cool blues and grays. This seems to take place in some desert setting. It just doesn't seem apocalyptic enough, sorry "McG".

  • March 3, 2009, 9:07 a.m. CST

    this will be a HUGE hit!!!

    by krull rules

    ...and McG will finally use his real name and get mad respect, this will be the #1 summer movie, it looks and feels like something we have needed for a long time, excellent apocalyptic sci-fi, I can't wait to see this...

    worthington is human?!

    by LabattsBleu

    why on earth would the machines put in a robot skeleton into a human? I know this was mentioned as a possible end for Bale (which is even dumber) but even this seems to stretch believability - a difficult thing to do in a movie about machines taking over the world and becoming self-aware - and more future travel?! Really? Yikes...i guess we'll have to wait and see...but...

  • March 3, 2009, 9:28 a.m. CST

    Could this movie POSSIBLY look any freaking COOLER!?

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    Anyone who says they aren't pissing their pants to see this is just a freaking raging psycho. This looks like the ULTIMATE Terminator film! It's just BRIMMING with cool robots and vehicles. It's the Terminator film we've all dreamed about and it's finally happening! Don't be a whiney bitch, embrace the awesomeness!

  • March 3, 2009, 9:28 a.m. CST

    by Smashing

    Still can't get past learning Christian Bale is a mentally ill man who screams like a woman when he loses his temper.<p.Bet that doesn't make it into any of his films though, at least we know why he does that deep Batman voice, it's way better than his high pitched screaming.

  • March 3, 2009, 9:40 a.m. CST

    GNR ALWAYS sounded like a cat getting strangled!

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    And I'm a metal head! NIN is INFINITELY cooler! T2 is so goddamn overrated it makes me sick. A terminator that kneecaps, smiles, gives the thumbs up and wisecracks! Get the F OUTTA HERE! Why do I cry? Because you PUSSIFIED the ultimate badass! But because it was the first Terminator film most on this board saw, it's their favorite. *rolls eyes*

    Quit bitching about Continuity

    by PornKing

    The future isn't one set moment and place in time. If this looks different, maybe it's because it's a different year or place? There's a ton of reasons why it could be different--the paradox of time travel for instance and how terminators being sent back in time could affect the future, etc...

    I'm a little confused...So the machines are now replicating human tissue and its news to John Connor? Wouldnt he have seen that in T2 w Arnold's character? Or is it that they are now merging humans w machines instead of creating machines to look like humans? Maybe I should just wait to find out...:)

    by WavingFlagsInSpace

    The majority of teenagers have not seen the first two terminator movies because the third one was so average.<p>I think this could be the start of something very special for a lot of kids (13 - 16) as they fall for Salvation and then have the brains to check out the origin stories.<p>In so many ways I am fucking jealous that they get to 'discover' such cracking sci-fi for the first time.<p>Hopefully they'll then give Hardware a go...ahhh, memories...<p>Let's be honest, Transformers is living proof that enough bang on screen for your bucks combined with a hot piece of ass is enough to generate many, many millions of dollars come the summer. And Salvation has heritage in its story, too...<p>People are drooling for this sort of stuff and I hope Salvation beats reading about the economy going tits up.

  • March 3, 2009, 11:49 a.m. CST

    I wanna see Terminators in Vietnam.


    John Connor jumps into the time-machine thing as an explosion goes off-- the flux capacitor is thrown outta whack and somehow he is launched back in time to 1966, to the jungles of Vietnam. John quickly grabs some clothes off a dead G.I. and crawls through the mud, realizing he is in the past and hearing the V.C.'s approaching. He hears a skirmish being waged in a nearby valley and looks down to spot the Americans at war with T-800'S?!!! What the fuck. Some crazy....alternatate time-line Back To The Future shit is going on here. But imagine if the Terminators were in bed with North Vietnam = TOTAL FUCKING DESTRUCTION.

    I started off having zero hope for this movie. Then Bale signed on. Then I saw the first trailer. But I still wasn't sold. I mean, come on, the director of Charlie's Angels?

    load of crap - not a boil on the ass of T2!

    by TurdontheRun

    This trailer was passable at best. Im surprised so many folks round here seem to get a hard on for 'splosions and transformer bots. Bale looks suitably intense, I'll give you that, and I did like the shot of the endoskeleton crawling on the ground, but this will be summer blockbuster fluff that will be long forgotten after the silly season has ended.<p> And what's with the NIN music playing over the trailer? Faux-nihilism for the angry social reject set, and cynically designed to make the movie appear 'hardcore' and 'badass' to goth teen males. How 'apocalyptic'! It's like the end of the world, dude! Trent Reznor is the father of emo -you know this to be true!<p>I expect this flick will be a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours, but nothing earth-shattering. Cameron need not be worried anytime soon. As Bale said: "Leave it to the fucking professionals!"

    by queerfilmjunkie

    For those bitching about a lack of continuity in the look of the future war versus the look of the future war in T1, you should really go back and watch T1. The future war scene at the beginning of T1 is so bad that when I saw in on VHS in 1987 I thought it was some kind of bad joke. Thank Bale this movie does not look like that. As for CGI/versus real stunts, I understand some have an affinity for real stunts, but when it was released T2 had about as much CGI in it as any movie that had ever been made. So if your are simultaneously fellating Cameron for T2 and disemboweling McG for using CGI in T4, you are a fucking hypocrite.

    Rifle-butt knockout

    by BurnHollywood

    T-600s have a known weakness to being struck sharply in the vicinity of their primary processing unit. Evidently, this involuntary flaw was carried on to the T-800s and left intact in their "sleepers", so in the event of superficial injury they don't reveal their near-invulnerability to the human resistance.<p> See? All fixed, and I had fun too. Everybody happy.

    Watch it happen. Oh my god, I think some of you are going to commit suicide. Maybe Avatar will be really fuckin' good, but, cmon, you know, YOU KNOW in your heart its not going to be. You know what its going to be? The Abyss. Your gonna get all riled up for something great and its gonna be... a dull thud. Search your feelings, you KNOW it to be true. Oh, you might even make excuses for it. Lord knows I did when The Phantom Menace came out. But slowly... slowly but surely, it became impossible for me to deny that The Phantom Menace sucked and Lucas had completely lost his mind and soul to the darkside... the dumbside... (but then he got his shit together for episode 3), but I digress. <br><br>You know in your heart of hearts, I'm right.

    by veebeeyes

    That Marcus really IS a human who was mechanized by humans before Judgement Day happened? I mean, correct me if I'm wrong about that, but everything I've heard about his character has said that he was executed before Judgement Day, was experimented on, and then wakes up in a future world full of robots. I may be wrong. But if that's the case, I'd find that actually sort of cool. I think it'd be cool to have a human character who was turned into a cyborg by man, only to have him awaken in a world in which machines are trying to prefect the science that enables them to become more human. If you were to place an emphasis on this kind of character and examine who and what he really is, that could serve as a device to better connect/distance the relationship between the humans and the Terminators. Honestly, if that were true, that could potentially turn out to be a very brilliant addition to the series. But then again, that's probably a fake rumor just like the rumor about John Connor being killed and then having his face implanted onto Marcus' body.

    That looked great. Only seen it via my work computer so no sound or music and it still kicked my ass! Much as I love the original Terminator trilogy, T4 could not have been a simple JC versus robot from the future movie. We’ve been there, done that. McG seems to be delivering something very different and I like what I’ve seen so far. You can nitpick this all you want; the Harvester looking like a TF for one thing. But if we can accept that Skynet can create flying HK’s why not an oversized cherry picker?

    As to the question of Marcus and whether or not he is a Terminator or a human? Why is this still up for debate? He is clearly a cyborg. He has a metal endoskeleton including a METAL skull. But he also has an exposed human heart and the capacity to feel pain. So someone – whether Skynet, the human military or someone yet to be introduced (HELLO HELENA!) has figured out how to transfer a human consciousness into an artificial brain. The cyborg part being explained away as the technology is not perfected yet – the ultimate goal being the transplantation of human minds in full T-800 exoskeletons – the ultimate stealth terminator – one who does not even know they are one until they are ACTIVATED! That’s what I think anyway. Anyone agree?

    by GlasgowChivas

    Seems to me that not only did Skynet send Terminators back to the past to kill JC but someone (Skynet/HBC?) has sent back Marcus to kill him from T4’s future. I’m guessing though that Marcus will undergo the classic will vs programming struggle that was done so poorly in T3. We may even see humans willing to undergo the process of CYBERTERMINIFICATION (copyright GlasgowChivas 2009) in the rest of the trilogy.

    T4 vs BSG

    by Titus05

    I think the writers of the new movie are rabid fans of Battlestar Galactica...the whole humans who don't know they are cyborgs thing sounds way too much like the new Cylon models

    Oh Yeah, TOTAL Rip Off Of BSG

    by LaserPants

    That doesn't bother me at all, though. All genre stuff is constantly ripped off and re-ripped off. I just hope its a well written take on the theme. The trailer certainly looks cool (Mr. Reznor's music is VERY effective here).

    BSG comparision

    by GlasgowChivas

    I haven’t seen the show so maybe you can help me. Do the characters in BSG want to be human or cylon once they are revealed? As I think this is the angle they will play up in T4. Will Marcus, a man who has been exectuted, experimented on and send out of his time use his new go-go terminator-arms to help or harm the resistance?

  • March 4, 2009, 6:07 a.m. CST

    I hope in the sequel we'll see a T-900

    by OptimusBob

    ... it could be a T-800 Endoskeleton covered in a Polymorphic skin alowing it the ability to morph into anyONE, but not anyTHING it touches, like the T-X but you know, cooler. And I almost jizzed when I heard NIN TDTWWA in that trailer, perfect.

    What The Characters In BSG Want

    by LaserPants

    Ultimately is to find a home, preferably Earth. BUT, it turns out that these immortal enemies -- the humans and the cylons -- are actually totally intertwined genetically and in terms of historical / psychological / spiritual memory. Its not so much that one wants to turn into the other, but that the two sides are inexorably merging into one new species -- organic and technology combined. Looks like T4 is exploring similar themes. (Btw, The Matrix Mythos did something similar to this too).

  • March 4, 2009, 6:47 a.m. CST


    by GlasgowChivas

    Thanks for the explanation. I personally wouldn't mind seeing this storyline develop - perhaps in T4's future mankind can only survive by adpoting cybernetic bodyparts - perhaps Marcus is sent back to convince JC that this is the path mankind should be heading down. I would then like to see JC be unable to accept that; commiting himself and the resistance to nothing other than total fucking destruction of Skynet and the machines.

    Another Similarity To BSG (Or So It Seems)

    by LaserPants

    Many of the Cylons didn't know they were Cylons until it was revealed a season or so ago; a reveal which left them utterly devastated and traumatized and terrified. I recommend you check the series out, Glasgow. Its a very intelligent, usually very well written show. I think you'd dig it.

    by LaserPants

    Yeah, never seen a war movie with a submarine in it. Duh. Btw, you do realize that North America has two rather large coasts, right? And that these large coasts are large coasts because they border the Atlantic and Pacific oceans? Duh part 2. Finally, I'm assuming the Skynet throwdown has a global reach, not just North America. Duh part 3. In short, if you think a submarine = a dealbreaker, DOUBLE DOUBLE DUMB DUMB ON YOU! YOU ARE AN AMATEUR!!!

    I disagree with Abyss studio cut being worse.


    I see it as far superior. Cameron's cut is bloated, self indulgent, and above all-- boring as fuck. I can give a fuck about the tidal wave. The studio cut moved at a much nicer pace and didn't make me despise every character in the film.

  • March 4, 2009, 10:12 a.m. CST

    I actually do like Rat Boy Todd Graff....


    ...and I like the theatrical cut just fine. I actually think its one of Cameron's finest achievements, only second to that Jack The Dripper art project where he dumped a bucket of blood and diarrhea on Linda Hamilton's naked back and took Polaroids of her posing in front of a 57 Camaro.

    Seriously, they are making money off of our hard work. That "caption this" chumming of the waters was the most obvious, but haven't there been an awful lot of Bale-centric articles lately? I mean, a fucking article because a movie DOESN'T star Christian Bale? I question that non-casting choice myself but I feel like AICN is taking advantage of a true phenomenon.

    The short answer is no. Because the work we do is important and supercedes worldly concerns such as money. That being said, it is disappointing that we are the metal shavings being pulled around by Harry's magnet. He used to be so ethical.

  • March 4, 2009, 11:07 a.m. CST

    The way you rank it for Bale/Non-Bale films....


    If you're doing a 1-10 scale, every film starring Lord Bale starts off at a 9 without having seen a minute of it. Every film NOT starring Bale starts out at a 2. Every film starring Bale as a minor character starts out at an 8. Then we go from there. But the actual ranking of the film after having viewed it can only go down a maximum of 1 point depending on whether or not you liked it. If Bale is not in it, there is no maximum point change after viewing, yet it can never rank higher than a 5. <p> Godfather 2 = 5 <P>Equilibrium = 10

    Trust you to diss the director's cut of The Abyss. Fuck you, it's the better version. While it's shocking that you like any Cameron movie at all, you couldn't help but ruin it, huh? The theatrical Abyss's ending doesn't make a lick o'fucking sense - the aliens are practically a deux es machina in that version. The wave was the whole point of the fucking film - a metaphor for how Bud and Lindsay's love saved the world. Too cheesy for you, or just boring? Guess you just think completely random shit is cool, instead of watching movies for what they actually say.<p> I'd like to see Jim Cameron cut off your nuts with a samurai sword, you dirty cunt!

Did he anal rape your mother or something? Well, tell you what pumpkin, come December please dont see it because you already know its total crap (just like those guys that KNEW batman begins would suck, that lotr was unfilmable, or that a movie about a sinking ship that everyone knows how it will end could never possibly be successful).

    you are just saying the same damn thing. Firstly, it is only your opinion that the abyss is not good (is all the plot and character development in the middle too much for you? the very things Bays movies lack, which is fucking astounding since you insist on comparing Bay and Cameron) Secondly, and most importantly, how do you know that Avatar will only be as good as the abyss? You can only make that assessment based on the idea that they are at least similar movies. Again, have you read the fucking scriptment? Even though its very out of date, Its full of action (aliens style) and is really a mix of aliens, star wars, with a little bit of the matrix thrown in. Unlike the abyss (which you could say is a science fiction thriller) avatar is a full blown action science fiction space epic. So please explain your comparison.

    by corplhicks

    In the trailer, Connor say's something's changed. My guess is that somehow the timeline as changed and the future described in T1 or T2 is not set.

Also I hope the T3 is still considered canon, because I for one did not think it sucked, but was fair.

    Where Abyss failed

    by theplant

    Wasn't that it was cut -- it was that Aliens were included in it. I love the director's cut, too, but it's a movie which tries to be more than what it is at heart : a love story. It would have been the best Cameron movie ever made, if all there was to it was a nuclear submarine crash, and the rest of the underwater drama, no Aliens, period, climaxing with the death of Michael Biehn ressurection of Lindsey. If only more time would have been devoted to that, rather than SFX shots and shots of people marveling to Close Encounter like lights, then it would be the best Cameron movie ever made.
