Though I was all prepared to check out the teaser trailer for the fourth Terminator movie later tonight (it was supposed to come online around 9:00 p.m. EST), it appears that the video is available online right now. And it's pretty spooky.
The footage, such as it is, is scratchy and choppy, cutting in and out ominously while Christian Bale, as John Connor, explains that "this is not the future my mother warned me about." The scariest part comes in the last few moments — and that's the part that I think will make audiences cheer when they see this before The Dark Knight this weekend.
The movie won't open until May 22, 2009, so let the insane hyping begin. To check out the teaser, read more
Well, OK, we already had one reason: Christian Bale. But now that Common's joining the cast of the fourth Terminator installment, Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, it's pretty much guaranteed I'll check out this movie.
According to Variety, "Story centers on John Connor (Bale), now in his 30s, who leads what is left of the human race in a battle against the machines. Common will play a freedom fighter and member of Connor's inner circle."
Oooh, "freedom fighter." Hot.
So, I know what I'm doing Memorial Day weekend, 2009. What about you?
