AICN got sent a description of the upcoming Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins teaser trailer from some dude who took part in a focus group. At first they were not sure if it were legit, however they got confirmation from someone else who saw it, so it seems genuine.
It opens with footage of people out in every day life. Christian Bale voiceovers
“I always knew it happen”…
Than a pause…
“They told me I could stop it.”
The same people begin looking to the sky….
“That I could save us”.
Looks of horror come across their faces as he says,
“They were wrong”.
Music rises as we cut to black for a second. The Terminator theme starts, with the duh duh,
duh, duh, duh.
NEXT SUMMER appears on the screen…
We get a quick shot looking out over a sunny desert, and then a shot of Bale, in badass commando uniform
and very recognizably the same guy who plays Batman, being lowered into a huge bunker
THE FIGHT FOR THE FUTURE
rolls across, and we get mixed clips from inside one of the survivor bunkers as seen in Terminator 1 – but they look more concentration campish; very crowded, shots of Bale walking with a large crowd. And then the word…
The music quickly rises as we get shot of a huge truck racing down a high way, a shot or two of a helicopter flying mixed with more close ups of the actors when Bale whispers, “They’re coming”.
It all goes quiet.
Massive drums blare the beginning of the theme (again) but this time much louder, more pumped up, as we get a metallic silver T that morphs into a 4.
We then get the big money shot of the trailer. Its Bale on a motorcycle with some girl on the back.
They speed through a door of what looks like a warehouse toward us. As soon as they
pass the screen, a huge terminator on wheels, a lot like the one they battle in the
first one, smashes through the wall, chasing them. It looks awesome.
It then says:
Memorial Day 2009.
Sounds amazing! Apparently we will be seeing the real thing with The Dark Knight.
