They had their moment and they were great but by and large they were about the journey l, characters and story. This featurette is literally ‘omg so much action it’s relentless’ I just don’t dig it. Maybe the final pacing will be more impressive but right now the preview material is not impressing me in the slightest.
Terminator 2 had the bar fight, the Galleria fight (where Arnold and Robert were throwing each otehr about like ragdolls), an exchange at Pescadero, Arnold opening fire on the entire LAPD with a minigun, then shooting the entire SWAT team in the leg, then shooting the remaining police with smoke grenades, followed by the helicopter/truck chase, and final fight where again Arnold and Robert throw each other around like ragdolls.

Sounds like plenty of OTT action to me from the second film alone, much more than just 'moments'. The only film to not have any OTT action would have been the original.

Yes, they definitely went too far OTT in the previous three films and there are undoubtedly OTT elements here too, but we've seen very little of the film even between the trailers and the behind the scenes we've gotten.

New trailer:



Damn, I must admit, I really liked the last 2 trailers. This newest one was dope.

The first trailer was very underwhelming. This one actually has me... 'hyped' might be too strong a word, but definitely much more interested in seeing it.

I really hope they don't blow it with further trailers spoiling the big plot points - like Genisys did. Its one big twist, spoiled in a trailer.

To add to that awesome trailer, there's ANOTHER trailer (Red band, I assume)



Wow, now if only they released this before the first trailer...

Interesting. I really think the story would be better with Sarah as the lone protector though, I feel like it'd be so much easier to invest in a bond if it was just the two of them.
I really couldn't be less interested in this new hybrid character. Nothing about her looks appealing.

I was never interested in the Terminator series beyond T2 but his looks really cool.
I liked Sarah's "I'll be back". Reminds me of Laurie disappearing below the balcony in Halloween '18.

Oh I like the idea of sarah alone again! like back to the first movie


as for terminators, seems like they will never be able to top Robert Patrick as the T1000

That's a good trailer, though I really dislike the new lead to have such a terrible attitude: "If you put her life in danger, I will **** you up." (though Sarah's response is on point)
So we have an actual bad ass character and another who they'll try to make awesome, but going by the way everything regarding her looks, it's such a try hard thing. Just write her as an actual bad ass character instead of whatever this is supposed to be for some type of attempt.
