Just in case you haven’t watched enough of ‘Terminator: Genisys’ before the movie actually comes out, we have you covered with nearly a minute of John Connor, played by Jason Clarke, giving a heroic speech to his men as they begin an assault on a Skynet facility.
We’ve seen some of it before, but not all of it. It’s a pretty good speech, though I don’t think I’d call it one of the best ever. The clip switches between John speaking to a crowd of his soldiers and the actual assault against the facility. The action is pretty solid. It’s much more of an actual battle than the regular over-the-top action we’ve seen in most of the other trailers and TV spots. To be honest, I would liked to have seen a lot more of these kinds of trailers, propping up the image of John as the hero and leader of the resistance rather than the spoiler-filled reveals that make you wonder if it’s worth watching the movie, since you already know what the twist is.
If I may give my personal opinion here, I need to say that I think that Paramount went a bit overboard with the sheer amount of trailers and clips and what not. Leaving aside the spoiler altogether, it’s just too much. I mean, yeah, it’s been kind of cool, and they’ve all been awesome, but there are just so many that it leaves a sense of fatigue. The first ones really made me want to watch the movie. The last 50 made me reconsider. So please, movie studios, I know you mean well, but cut back on the number of trailers, please. Also, getting back to the topic of the spoiler: Please stop spoiling the dang movie.
So, are you getting tired of these clips and trailers yet? Are you ready to watch ‘Terminator: Genisys,’ or do you feel like you’ve already seen it? Let us know in the comments below.
Terminator: Genisys will be out in theaters tomorrow, July 1st.
