The new Terminator Salvation trailer has arrived and it gives away far too much, particularly about Sam Worthington's character. Sign of the times I guess.
The visuals are fantastic, and the story looks intriguing - keeping enough familiar elements while distancing itself significantly from the previous movies (something Terminator 3 failed to do). With both Paul Haggis and Jonathan Nolan (The Dark Knight) working on the script, McG has done an amazing job of surrounding himself with the very best talent for what is essentially just 'Terminator 4'.
Here's the official synopsis -
"Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor (Christian Bale), the man fated to be the leader of the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators, and the future he was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they find out a terrible secret that may lead to the possible annihilation of mankind."
What do you think? Is it f**king distracting, or does it make you want to trash the lights?
