There's your twist!  Instead of falling for Kyle Reese, Khaleesi falls for Summer Glau.  Butts in seats, baby, butts in seats.  Of course, if Conner falls for a girl, there's no John Conner.  Four movies, the robots never thought to SEDUCE their target before.

You know, as I think about it, the show really allowed for time to ponder the repercussions of Terminators, time travel, causality and all that, themes that the movies touched on but couldn't explore, and that's why it worked.  The non-Cameron sequels didn't really get into that.  And I can't really see how a movie THIS busy could get into it in a satisfying way.

It's real simple, and it's just one "oh sh*t!" revelation after another.  "Oh sh*t, the Terminator's back!" "Oh sh*t, he's after the kid!" "Oh sh*t, he's the good guy!" "Oh sh*t, that other machine is insanely advanced!" and finally "Oh sh*t, I gotta see this movie."

Maybe it's a thing where they have to prove to everyone their flick is good because the last two were garbage and they wind up overcompensating, maybe it's studio pressure, maybe it's just the fact that the saavy audience already knows so much about it already... I dunno.

We also have to deal with the fact that T1 and T2 are simple premises, while this thing is... wild.  All over the place.  They needed to boil it down.  It sounds more like a crazy man's ramblings, or how I sound when I'm talking about something I'm in the process of making.  A trailer, especially a teaser, should be an invitation.  The "what if."  This isn't that.

I almost hear you saying that there will be that one eye rolling scene where the events are explained to the audience.

Interesting discussion. Roth gets brownie points from me for raving about Sarah Conner Chronicles.

Thigh might be the most interesting thing I've seen for Terminator Genisys.  I love how "Arnie" keeps calling Emalia Clarke "Jennifer Lawrence Jr"

Ouch. That's both a compliment and an insult. Clarke has her own identity and has done her best in creating a character people love in GoT. So, that's gotta sting when your co-star can't even remember to call you by your own name. Sure, it's nice that he puts you in the same category with someone as awesome as J-Law, but come on dude, it's still not cool to name drop someone else when describing you.  How do you think Arnie would feel if people starting referring to him as 'Lou Ferrigno Jr'. Yeah, not cool.

Hahaha. Okay, I just watched the "trailer" and realized that it was just some comedian doing the Arnie voice. Well played. I really thought that going in, I was expecting to hear the real Arnie insulting Clarke.

You were honestly incensed when you thought it was real.  The gloves came off.

Now THIS is what I'm talking about!  A cleaner, more straightforward trailer for Genisys.

A recut/rerecording of the trailer, admitting how freakin' insane the timeline has become.

Hahaha. I found that to be quite funny. Too bad THAT wasn't the official Trailer!

Inside 'Terminator Genisys' with Arnold Schwarzenegger

I find it funny that Arnie can slam Terminator Salvation in saying it "sucked", but he can't admit that Terminator 3 is a bad movie in its own right. Salvation beats Rise Of The Machines every time.

So a little time has passed since seeing the first trailer for this flick.

Funny... it moves my meter little. In fact, it looks a little cheesy.

Not seeing this in the theater.  :-\
