A few brand new TV spots for Terminator Salvation have made their way online and they are awesome!

We haven’t seen nearly as much marketing for this movie as we have for some of its competitors in the month of May – specifically X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Star Trek but I’m sure they are about to gear up for the release as the summer season kicks off this Friday.

The teasers show off the finished special effects of the movie and emphasize the post-apocalyptic backdrop of the story. There’s a ton of new footage in these short trailers so check these two out:

Note the PG-13 rating at the end of the videos. It’s disappointing but understandable on Warner Bros. part.

I love the aesthetic design of the world presented in the trailers so far. I imagine it’s not too far off from what we may see in the potential Fallout 3 movie if that ever gets pushed into development.

The fourth installment in the Terminator franchise and hopeful beginning of a new trilogy is directed by McG. It stars Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Moon Bloodgood, Bryce Dallas Howard, Common, Helena Bonham Carter and Jadagrace.

What do you think of the footage shown in these spots?

Terminator Salvation opens May 22, 2009.
