They activate when the T-1000 goes offline, and shortly after the events of T2 one finds Sara and John in a bar and blows John away. So Furlong is only there to do mocap to be de-aged to the age he was in T2. Anyway, If I'm understanding this correctly, once a Terminator fulfills its mission its CPU, um, automatically switches to r/w? So that particular Terminator "feels remorse" and helps Sara kill the other T-800s. Ah and it take the name Carl. That's who we see in the trailer when Sara visits an older Arnie.

    But someone, or rather something, like Skynet is like the lightbulb, destined to exist. So Legion comes to be and fills its void and everything repeats itself. There will be a future war, that girl is destined to be its savior the same way John Connor was fighting Skynet, enter Rev-2 (Luna) and Female Reese.
    end of spoilers

    So, again IF true, they are following a lot of the beats of T3. spoilers:
    Cause that's exactly how we got the T-850. In exposition it was pointed out it killed John but once it did, hey, free Terminator for John's wife to use and send back in time. Luna as a more advanced T-X...other lieutenants being hunted = the "new John Connor" being hunted.
    end of spoilers
    I saw that video as well. If any of it is true then this movie can f*** itself.

    spoilers:
    It's not surprising. It's been obvious since the last movie that they consider John an albatross around the concept's neck that keeps it from being a real franchise concept. John is part of a close-ended story with a clear beginning, middle, and end. The studios hate that. They want a concept they can profit from until the end of time. So John had to go. This is just Take Two of the kill-john-and-mutate-the-series-into-a-true-franchise attempts.

    That would be all fine and dandy if
    spoilers:
    They didn't kill him off just to replace him with another character fulfilling the exact same role. Feels pointless to kill him off

    Agreed. spoilers:
    How is John "part of a close-ended story" but this little girl is not if she's filling the exact same role??? If a savior is the problem ditch THAT concept and just have humanity in general fight against Skynet, er, Legion.

    I liked 1 a lot, great movie, 2 is fantastic, 3 is fun, idc what anyone says. Didnít like salvation, I enjoyed genesis or whatever itís called but I can see why it was hated lol.

    This one reminds me a lot of T2

    The second trailer, two days old:


    Hmm...is there a reason why Reese-800 (not sure what her name is) seems unstoppable and the Rev.2 doesn't?

    In any case, based on Sarah's reaction to Carl, Midnight's Edge's spoilers were true. :/

    Also very interesting...soon you can PLAY as Carl on Mortal Kombat 11!

    Trailer magic, most likely. The Rev-2 can, and will, survive all that punishment to just keep on coming. Nu-Reese may be enhanced and more capable than a baseline human, but is probably not as durable as a Terminator. So there are way more scenes of the Rev-2 getting smashed, slashed and shot in the film, to show it's relentlessness and capability, than there are of Nu-Reese getting pummeled. Might as well use them to make the trailer look cool.

    Now that Game of Thrones is over I'd much rather see Lena Headey and the rest of the cast return for a 2 hr special to give some closure to the Sarah Connor Chronicles.
    That was a pretty good series.

    Yeah, I'd honestly have more emotional investment in a continuation of the Sarah Connor Chronicles than what we're getting here. Not that what I think we're getting hear is necessarily bad or anything like that... but it just feels like more of the same poorly disguised as something new.
