Online Video: The "Terminator Salvation" Trailer

BoomTown is a freakish fan of cybernetic organisms–living tissue over a metal endoskeleton, duh!–and thus feels compelled to include this, the latest trailer from the upcoming fourth movie in the “Terminator” series.

The franchise is everywhere, including a television series I am also obsessed with called “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” which is only doing so-so in ratings, despite the fact that Summer Glau’s cyborg is sublime.

But the big Skynet guns are trained on the “Terminator Salvation” blockbuster, which will be out next summer.

It’s directed by Helmer McG–eek, of the newest “Charlie’s Angels” fame–but I am still hopeful from the footage seen below. (Who am I kidding? I would watch any “Terminator,” even if it were directed by my mother.)

A fifth installment of a new trilogy of movies on the time-traveling robots is already in the works.

In other words, they’ll definitely be back.

Here’s the trailer, which came out recently:
