I know almost everybody has started to experience franchise fatigue with the never-ending Terminator series, especially after countless disappointing sequels.
Terminator Salvation and Terminator: Genisys both ruined whatever expectations I had for the series. I disliked Salvation the most, but I was one of the rare few that actually thought Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines was an R-rated blast that mostly copied T2, but at least did it with similar style and scope.
Still, it felt like we were never going to get a worthwhile sequel, until Deadpool‘s Tim Miller came along with original series creator James Cameron (in the producers chair) and of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Also, they managed to wrestle up Linda Hamilton, who appears to be having a ton of fun reprising her role as Sarah Connor.
The first trailer kinda fell on deaf ears to me, despite all of the praise and hype from early footage that was released.
This new trailer definitely feels more in line with T1 and T2, at least in tone and feel. I’m still super worried that we are being peddled the same bullshit that we were fed right before Genisys hit, but I’m always going to be a sucker for another Terminator film, especially if it has the balls to land an R rating.
