"Terminator: Genesis" has officially begun filming.
(The R.I.P. Sarah has nothing to do with Sarah Connor; it’s in reference to a camera assistant who was killed recently on another film)
In the future, a computer program called Skynet will declare war on the human race. Machines have traveled back through time taking human form to terminate John Connor - the future leader of the Resistance. Sarah Connor - John’s mother, teacher, and protector. Cameron, a terminator reprogrammed to defend them at all costs. Derek Reese - John’s uncle and a commanding officer with the Resistance. Together they fight to stop Skynet from ever being created.
The battle for our tomorrow starts today.
Seven. November 10. Where was l? What’s difficult is trying to decide what to tell you and what not to. But I guess I have a while before you’re old enough to understand these tapes. They’re more for me at this point just so that I can get it straight. Should I tell you about your father? Boy, that’s a tough one. Will it effect your decision to send him here, knowing that he is your father? If you don’t send Kyle, you can never be. God, a person could go crazy thinking about this. I suppose I will tell you. I owe him that. Maybe it’ll help if you know that in the few hours that we had together, we loved a lifetime’s worth.
I am still SO very angry about a remake for Terminator. Fuck a remake. I want to see humanity at war with machines goddammit!
It’s not a full reboot from what we’ve heard. Though obviously, it’s rumors at this point, the rumors all say that it’s basically only a partial reboot. Think the 2009 Star Trek movie. Yes, we will have new people playing Sarah Connor, John Connor, Kyle Reese… but it’ll be keeping with the events of the prior films and we’ve still got Arnold.
I don’t know what to think of it all either, to be honest. I’m nervous about it all as well. They have to try something a little ambitious though. Another sequel wouldn’t work. Even if it did give us the future war we’ve all always wanted. Because T3 didn’t do it, Salvation didn’t do it either, and so to just try a 5th movie continuing on from it… I don’t see it doing well either.
So they have to do something like this.
How it’ll end up? No one knows. The future has not been written. There is no fate but what we make for ourselves…
