    Yikes i def hope they improve some of the CG effects work by the time the movie comes out, some of those scenes were def like 2000s era rough. Hopefully that's just because they're half baked and not in a finished state.

    Linda Hamilton's entrance was cool but that's about all i really dug in this trailer :/

    The lack of charisma from everyone involved (except Arnold) really makes this very unlikeable. There's only one Robert Patrick I guess, lol.

    Laughed at the first comment on YT: "Plot twist: John Connor's mullet redheaded friend is the protagonist."

    This one was good too:
    Feminator: Dark Fate for Arnold T-800

    Bring on the facepalms lol.

    Oh my god. They never learn. This is gonna suck so hard. I guess there's a slight chance that it's slightly better than Genisysysys.

    Can I also add how viciously I have the godawful covers of great songs in the trailers? Is this a recent trend?

    That Bjork cover is very strange...

    Also, it's a huge pet peeve of mine when movies ask you to ignore certain installments in a franchise. To say that this is a direct sequel to T2 is BS, the studios that made halfassed Terminator movies own this shit and they shouldn't be given a free pass to just erase those. Fuck that.
    And the movie itself needs to address this somehow. You can't just hear that from the press release, the movie needs to make it clear. Somehow.
    (I had the same problems with the latest Halloween)

    Ive seen them all, didnt care for T3, Really liked Salvation and Genisys was very MEH, borderline terrible because of the ending. I am OK with discounting all sequels except for Salvation because I love the world they created. After seeing this trailer....I just dont know. Love that Hamilton is back with Arnold but nothing in the trailer made me go WOW!. If this installment doesnt work, it may be time to put the franchise to bed.

    I am a huge Arnold fan, obviously. I feel like the Terminator movies have been the same for the exception of Salvation( Which I actually liked) since the first movie. I need to see more of this, but I am not hyped for it all as its the same thing all over again.

    I will defend Salvation to no end. This is the only film that had balls to bring something new to the table, and Bale was brilliant as JC.

    In this trailer we can see an "almost human" terminator (hello to Marcus) and uhh... another liquid/micromachine-covered-skeleton? (hello to T-X and faux John Connor). They can ignore the three last films all they want, but they still stole ideas from them.

    Agreed. T4>T3. While I enjoyed T3, it was just T2 redux. I thought I read Salvation was supposed to be part one of a trilogy that never happened. As for this new trailer, I'm in the minority here, but I thought this looked pretty cool.

    Is Arnold just making a cameo, or is he just a minor character in this one?

    I agree with this 100%. I love that movie and I am pretty disappointed they didn't continue with the other 2 movies. Honestly, what was the backlash with Salvation? Did it just not perform well enough or did people actually not like the movie?

    That movie started to lose me once Marcus escapes the human base to infiltrate Skynet. He proceeds to have some sort of pow wow with Skynet who reveals some convoluted plan that had Marcus created on the off chance that he meets John Connor and then lured him to the Skynet base? What was the point of taking human prisoners? Why was the human military base way out in the open where Skynet could just bomb the shit out of them? And why didn't they? Open heart transplant in a tent in the middle of the desert? The film made less and less sense as it went on and when it was over further analysis just revealed more silly plot points.

    I love Christian Bale but I found him too recognizable and serious for that role. He would have been much better as Marcus... I think that was the original idea.
    What the movie did right was to attempt something original. It was really interested to have a character convinced he was a human turn out to be a robot (Westworld pulled this off to greater success). The world created for that film was sufficiently dystopic and desaturated, the robot designs were pretty cool. The idea of seeing how John Connor came to be the leader of the resistance was an interesting one but the execution was off imo.

    So the trailer reveal on Reddit turned into a AMA with Arnold. His comments are gold especially the scene that didn't make it into Commando. https://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comm...m_medium=web2x

    The machine/human hybrid stuff turned me off. I was really hoping this could be about the guy who the original Terminators are based on, not Arnold playing an aging robot.

    I don't think we know who is he yet. In his AMA he refused to answer, and trailer does a relatively good job at not spoiling the whole plot.

    I loved Salvation too, I wish we would have gotten the planned trilogy.

    Especially the atmosphere of the film, I know at the time alot of people complained that it wasn't how the future was depected in the first two films. But really? Do you expect it to be night all the time? It's not like the Matrix where it's perpetually dark out.

    And the scene with the Harvester was awesome too, the lack of music and just terrible machine sounds. And the motorcyle Terminators? LoVE that shit, even if it make no sense.

    edit: Genisys was so bad, I went to go sell it back to the used media store I bought it from, they told me they were overstocked already. So I told them consider it a donation! Garbage film, worst I've seen in a LONG time.

    Watch at your own discretion. What he says in here can't be anything but spoilers (if not for the actual movie, then for a backstory inbetween T2 and this).
