New Posters for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

sarah connor logo New Posters for Terminator: The Sarah Connor ChroniclesEntertainment Weekly premiered four new posters for the upcoming Fox TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. We haven’t given much coverage to this new series on the site beyond a story this past summer describing what it would be about.

As far as I know, it takes place between the second and third Terminator films, and from what little I’ve read it seems that it disregard the events of the third film. According to executive producer Josh Friedman:

Terminator 3 for our timeline doesn’t exist, now let’s go forward.”

Friedman also stated that he thinks that fans of the Terminator movies are ambivalent about T3: Rise of the Machines. It really was quite a departure from the first two and that could have been a good thing (look at the original Alien and the first sequel Aliens: both completely different yet both were awesome). However T3 was kind of a mixed bag. It did well at the box office but didn’t really seem to fit as a part of a trilogy.

So now we have a TV version that supposedly will be faithful to the story of the first two films. The question is, will this turn out to be something great, or will it be another schlockfest like NBC’s Bionic Woman or Sci Fi’s Flash Gordon?

In any case, here are the four new posters. They seem to be much heavier on the “Terminator” part of the series title than the “Sarah Connor” aspect. I suppose a hot babe that’s really a machine has more poster appeal than a militant mom. icon smile New Posters for Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Yes, the twist is that the Terminator is a cute young thing in the TV version of the story. The character goes by the name Cameron Phillips (uber obvious hat tip to James Cameron, no doubt) and is played by Summer Glau, who was River Tam in the TV series Firefly and the film Serenity.

  1. Tutti i poster della serie The Sarah Connor Chronicles

    Due soli giorni fa vi abbiamo mostrato il primo poster promozionale di The Sarah Connor Chronicles, la serie tv che stanno sviluppando partendo dall’idea del film Terminator 2 – cronologicamente la storia si dipanerà partendo lì dove si …

  2. This should be a great addition to the Terminator timeline and a action packed show, (fingers crossed).
    We don’t have the orignal actors but I’m going to try and overlook that.
    I hope they write in a good season long story arc, this franchise deserves one!
    If the show goes into the villain of the week and no arc then it prob won’t make it, in todays Heroes/24 tv world.
    (in my opinion) T2 was the best! then T1 of course and then T3…
    In T3′s defense I have to say besides its fatalistic ending was a great film. I loved the twisted timeline they seemed to be in and the TX was HOT!!! and deadly.
    She must have had part of the Main Skynet CPU programming in her the way she basically started the Rise of the Machines.
    Also if they would follow the Terminator comic book timeline the next film T4 should start about 20 years after T3. 2027. LA. The future war. In the comic version,,, John Connor is the leader of the human resistance. His 2nd in command is Miles Dyson son, (as seen in T2). They capture a endo and reprogram it to carry a virus into Skynet. Once inside the massive computer bunker the endo downloads the virus, effectivly shutting down Skynet. Thus allowing the resistance to send back Kyle Reese, unkle John* and of course the T-800 that Kate Brester sent back in T3.
    They complete this task.
    And at the very end a resistance fighter is seen walking into the celebration he asks a commrad what happend. The others tell him that Skynet has been defeated and he blends in. Afterwards you see him slip away and by the gleem in his silver eye you realise its a T-1000 model. And he’s headed for a backup Skynet base to ressurect the computer beast…
    That’s how it bascially ends but I could see how they could alter that and go to T5.
    Ahhhh the timeline possibilties.

    Go Connor!!!

  3. At this point I’ll withhold judgement. It could end up being awesome, mediocre or awful.

    We’ll just have to wait and see.


  4. Does anybody know if the Sarah Conners Cronicles is going to have another season of have they thrown it to the dogs.

  5. Dennis,

    Yes, it’s coming back for another season.


  6. Is that Vic the T888?

  7. I just wanted to say that this is my favorite show. I thought I wouldn’t like the idea, however; all the actors/actresses have performed perfectly and the story line is highly enjoyable. I am truly excited to see this series through. This show IMO should remain on the air indefinitely. Hopefully everyone finds as much enjoyment I do, thus creating little chance of cancellation. I can’t stand when I love a show and it ends abruptly.

    Two thumbs up to the people involved it its creation. Keep up the good work, I will anxiously await each episode.

  8. I love this show! It’s the only one I watch and look forward to it. I haven’t missed a show yet. I’m even going to be Cameron for Halloween!
