Terminator 4 teaser described
Terminator 4 is currently filming with Christian Bale as John Connor. The teaser trailer for the film is due to premiere in front of Batman: The Dark Knight, on July 18th. And a member of a focus group who has seen the trailer has sent in a description.
Usually I'm flitting between excited and slightly nervous about T4. Today it's excited.
It opens with footage of people out in every day life. Christian Bale voiceovers something like:
"I always knew it would 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.
I like the references to things kind of looking like they did in Terminator. Apart from the child friendly rating it's near the top of my list of concerns. I can't wait to see it for real. What about you, reckon it "looks" good?
