Definitely a stronger and more interesting trailer.
I always get excited at the prospect of a new Terminator film, and then end up disappointed. Fingers crossed that they've gotten things right this time.

Still looks like a pointless retread to me. Some films don't need to be franchises.

While the trailer does look a lot better than the last trailer but thats not really hard. It seems the leaked spoilers are all true then

It seems they can't stop ****** on the first 2 films,

Do these films make enough money to keep this franchise going? I never thought the last few had been big successes. OK T2 was a big film, but enough to keep churning them out?

The last one was saved by the Chinese box office, without that I doubt they would've greenlit this one.

Yeh at best they just about might break even, seems odd to risk keep making another sequel.

It was still it bad enough experience for it to kill that potential trilogy stone dead.

I can only think of Highlander as a film that should have stayed at one movie although I am one of the few that liked the renegade version of highlander 2 (first DVD I ever got) and they did at least try to take it in a different direction.

Terminator franchise starting with T2 was just retreading the same story although it is a good story.

JC's involvement is not a hallmark of a quality product these days Alita BA was pap along with Titanic he also needs to pull his head from the asses of those over-sized smurfs and make something people might want to see

Aliens at least tried to do something different compared to Alien

I always think if your main draw is who is producing it, then you've got problems.

Films nowadays seem to be made much more with a sequel in mind, or maybe it's just me. Might just be me, but it seems back in the day they were far more likely just to churn out a cash grab sequel with little thought to the quality.

T2 was great and was good ending to the 1st film (the only bad bits iirc are the ginger friend of john and some of the 90's talk of john)

A side from some uncanny valley CGI, Alita battle angel was good and entertaining film

Trouble is with the terminator franchise, they have not been good for ages and same with the Alien franchise (the last 2 were ******* terrible) because they are just making crapped out product

I think unfortunately that there's a perception that the output of certain people will always be exceptional. Names such as Ridley Scott and Quentin Tarantino spring to mind. They've all made some all time classics but in the case of people like Ridley Scott they've also made some utter ****!

I forget the film but I saw some terrible Horror film and its main selling point was Francis Ford Copolla had been the executive producer or something.

In many cases I think executive producer or so forth is sometimes just a payment not to bad mouth the finished product.

Yes, executive producer could literally be because you put up some of the money, nothing more.

T2 (Agreed about Ginger Friend and the kid talk) was good but unlike Aliens which went the action route from the original horror, T2 just made Arnie the good guy and we again have a terminator going after john and his mum. If T2 had been more horror perhaps set in the future John is captured and we see what the machines are up to close-up and personal like it would have been something to behold. Or even a smaller liquid metal terminator that has to hijack a human and we get some body horror

Alita CGI was one thing but the story as a whole was just meh in the end we are no further forward that we we half way thru. It just screamed poorly written in the hope of a sequel to clear things up.

Agreed about Ridley Scott he has his name attached to plenty of dross.

Yep, because nobody wants to see an Avatar movie.

I thought the Highlander TV series was a worthwhile sequel to the film

I don't consider it a sequel but more of a TV reboot seeing as it is set in the 90s and the gathering occurred in 1985 in the movie + Connor is only in it for 5 mins and is never seen again until the endgame movie

The problem with these is the excuse to have Arnold in them. Unless the idea of him being there actually makes sense rather than forcing it then it might work.

I can almost guarantee the reason Arnold is in this film will be very weak, meaning the film is being built on sand.

The action might be decent, but when its a follow up to two films where all the action is there for a reason it wont mean anything.

Loved it.
