We are approaching Terminator: Salvation day, and Fancast now has eight new badass clips from the flick long-time fans have been dying to see – the human war vs. machines that John Connor (Christian Bale) has been bred to fight all his life. The film is full of callbacks and acknowledgments to the franchise originator The Terminator and the franchise megahit Terminator 2: Judgment Day, as you’ll see in the clip shown above, wherein Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin) saves Marcus (Sam Worthington) from a Terminator in what’s left of Los Angeles.
Check out seven more intense clips after the jump!
Here there be spoilers, so be forewarned!
In this clip, we see how John Connor has made himself the spiritual leader of the resistance against Skynet’s army of machine soldiers, by broadcasting messages of hope and inspiration to the humans who have managed to stay alive.
The mysterious Marcus finds himself alone after an attack, but meets up with resistance fighter Blair (Moon Bloodgood).
Not all humans are down with organized resistance. Even when struggling for survival, humankind can turn on itself, as Blair discovers here.
Marcus has made his way to the resistance, only to find that John Connor is in no way pleased to have him there once his secret is revealed.
Blair argues with John and later Kate Connor (Bryce Dallas Howard) about the fate of Marcus.
The mission to save Kyle puts John right in the heart of Skynet, and right in the path of a brand new T-800.
