  1. Teaser was alright. They are clearly going for Stranger Things. Dig the setting. Expected to see some of the old cast. Maybe next trailer...
  2. Yes, let them invest big only in surefire things, let's kill any and all risk taking. Notwithstanding that being all smartass after the fact is easy, when we the consumers start to act more risk averse than even studio heads we have only ourselves to blame for the situation blockbuster filmmaking is in at the moment. Alita Battle Angel was a good movie that just couldn't find the audience it deserved because people were too busy saving up cash to spend it on the next superhero or cartoon, even though they were given a great hero in Alita (and she's all animated lol). All imho of course.
  3. Possible? Yes. Likely? Wouldn't be so sure about that...
  4. The TV show was alright (at least the 1st season) but compared to the movies (T1 & T2) there's no comparison.
  5. Don't know the filmmaker or his past work but i was taken by that trailer.
  6. For sure. It doesn't deserve to flop as badly as it does. As good as it is, the filmmakers didn't do themselves any favors by basically rehashing the story told better 30 years ago. You can get away with it if you are Star Wars. Also, with Star Wars it was a long wait between Ep 6 and Ep 7, a long time since the original actors' return. Had T3, Salvation and Gensys not happened, i think hype would have been a lot higher for Dark Fate.
  7. I think it was more than just Furlong not being able to reprise his role. I mean, why not recast him, then? Hell, the future John Connor in T2 didn't look anything like Edward Furlong. And you can get away with it since he was still a child and people change a lot in 30 years growing up. I think, based on interviews, they didn't know what to do with the character of John Connor, him not being the savior anymore. Because i feel like they didn't want T1 and T2 to feel meaningless by saying they didn't prevent anything. At least that way they did prevent "a" possible future war. And his death was supposed to be a catalyst for Sarah Connor to kick her story off. They wanted her back. I'm sure one could have done it differently, maybe better than what they came up with. Like i have been saying, personally, i would have scratched all that and done the future war.
  8. Only because they let themselves be restricted, meaning filmmakers and also part of the fandom. For them, it is a chase movie with Arnold as T-800. In my opinion, one could tell great stories during the future war. Salvation had the right idea, only the execution was not quite up to scratch.
  9. For sure. With my luck, this is going to flop, too and we'll never see a sequel. 🙄 This one warrants sequels. It's an expansive story.
