TV & FILM
bill-swift - December 5, 2014
Yesterday Paramount gave us a teaser trailer for the trailer. Today they've given us the trailer, and our first extended look at the new Sara Conner (Emelia Clarke), the new John Conner (Jason Clarke—no relation), the new Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney), and the old Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger).
The verdict? If you can overlook hopelessly tangled clusterfuck of alternate timelines created by all the time travel across five films, the flick looks pretty sweet.
Seriously, do not try to figure out the timelines. At all. You can't. None of the time travel stuff in the Terminator movies has ever made any sense, starting with the original, wherein John Conner sends Kyle Reese back in time...to impregnate his mom and become his dad? So really, don't overthink it. Just sit back and enjoy all your favorite lines, from "come with me if you want to live," to "I'll be back."
Oh, and the explosions! Don't forget to enjoy the explosions.
