The summer season is upon us with big movies X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Star Trek already out in theaters and plenty more on the way. The next biggie for me is Terminator Salvation which opens in just two weeks.
Similar to Trek and Wolverine, there’s already talk of sequels for Terminator Salvation. If the trailers we’ve seen so far for this movie are any indicator, then that talk is certainly justified. However, I’m starting to get just a wee bit worried with the release of this extended trailer.
This lengthy teaser, which runs around four minutes, reveals many new scenes while re-showing us or extending scenes we’ve seen so far. The fact that we’re being shown so much makes me worry that the studio doesn’t think the movie will be so great and that they’re trying to show off as much as possible to bring the crowds in.
The trailer below seems to sum up much of the movie and to me, it reveals quite a lot about the plot and how certain events and character meet-ups occur. So, if you don’t want to know any more about Terminator Salvation before it opens, you may want to avoid this video. Otherwise, enjoy:
I’m no longer getting the “this is awesome” vibe that I got from the previous full trailer (which is my favorite trailer of the year by the way). Perhaps, that is because I’ve simply been over-saturated with marketing material for this movie and all the vehicles, robots and explosions I've seen many times over in the TV spots.
Is it just me, or do some of the CGI elements look pretty weak?
I’m excited for this movie regardless and can’t wait to see it!
What do you think of the new and longer trailer?
Terminator Salvation is directed by McG and opens May 22, 2009.
