    There will be a trailer for Terminator Salvation in the previews of the upcoming Batman movie The Dark Knight. The movie has the leading actor, Christian Bale (who plays Batman if you didnt know and have been living in a cave for the past...few years) as John Connor the leader of the human resistance against the machines.

    Anton Yelchin (Alpha Dog, House of D) will be playing Kyle Reese, with a significant age difference between Yelchin and Bale which is a father son combination. However, if you are not familiar with the movies at all - Kyle Reese is John Connor's father who was sent back in time to impregnate his mother. The prospect of actually helping raise your own father - and acting as his is well, one of those interesting character dynamics that I can't say I have seen done all too often in holywood storylines.

    It is reported that both will be main characters and to expect a bit of Obi Wan slash Anakin Skywalker on screen. The movie also has Sam Worthington as Marcus Wright, Moon Bloodgood (Journeyman) as Blair Williams, and Bryce Dallas Howard (Spiderman 3, The Village, Lady in the Water) as Kate Connor. Clair Daines declined the offer to reprise her role as John Connors wife.

    IMDB entry http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0438488/

    Trailer: I watched the trailer on Yahoo, however the hyperlink I tried using won't work for some reason (it doesnt actually link the video). Just search for it on there. Otherwise watch it during the Batman previews.

    Awesome. I really enjoyed the first 3 Terminators and always hoped they would make another one!

    That does look awesome, problem I've always found with prequels is they make the tech look better than it did in the later movies... case in point being star wars...

    Well, what exactly in SW had better tech (in continuity) in 1 2 3 than 4 5 6?

    I'm talking cosmetically. It's all well and good to say "this ship is older and therefore crapper than the newer ship in the older movie" but if it looks newer and therefore 'better' in the newer (older) movie it doesn't really work.

    Could you be more specific, is there a techonology or ship or something you are specifically relaying too? And I am talking about the technology in SW continuity and not the SFX departments ability to represent that technology.

    i get what you mean,

    in the old films it felt more real, whereas in the newer films it looks too fake.

    bale as john connor, who would of thought!.

    hope its better than 3, that was god awful.

    The first 2 movies will go down in history as some of the greatest action movies of all time. The third was a piece of s*it that made no sense at all. This movie has to really pull something special out the bag to make any kind of good impression. Saying that though, I've never seen Christian Bale in a bad movie.

    I'm not saying T3 was the greatest movie of all time, I did like it, but what didn't make sense?

    Terminator 2 was my favorite movie as a kid. I still consider it an AWESOME movie.

    Never saw Terminator 3.

    The one requirement for a Terminator movie is that Arnold must be in it. This one already sounds iffy to me.

    mmmm i saw nothing special or exciting in this trailer... just cuts and gluing some lame scenes just doesnt do it for me. I will wait for the next trailer to give a verdict.
