"Terminator Salvation" may not hit theaters until the end of the week, but MTV has you covered if you want to get your post-apocalypse on just a little bit early. You've probably seen portions of the five clips featured below in various trailers and TV spots, but here you get some unbroken, raw footage pulled straight from the film.
Starting us off is Anton Yelchin, shedding his thick Russian accent and barely pubescent charm from "Star Trek" to deliver Michael Biehn's iconic (and oft-repeated) Kyle Reese utterance from the first movie: "Come with me if you want to live." Yelchin of course plays a younger Reese in the film, long before a trip to the past inadvertently turns him into the father of humanity's savior.
In the next video, Blair Williams (Moon Bloodgood) convinces Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington) that he should meet with John Connor (Christian Bale). She probably wouldn't be saying that if she knew the real truth about Wright....
What would a "Terminator" movie be without a grave monologue? Here, John Connor addresses the human resistance in a low monotone. I can't say I'd rush out and follow the guy based on this, but he's also speaking to a world gone to hell at the hands of Skynet machines.
John Connor's been misbehavin'. At least, that's what it sounds like based on how the submarine captain (Michael Ironside!) chews him out at the start of the clip. The upbraiding gives way quickly enough to a mission briefing. C'mon guys! No action hero ever breaks the rules unless (a) there's a hard lesson to be learned or (b) s/he can discover valuable information - in this case, that the machines have an on/off switch - in the rule-breaking.
Life is rough when you're talking about a post-apocalyptic setting. No more fresh sushi, no going out to the movies on Friday night and - as we learn here - antibiotics are hard to come by. Of course, if you're fortunate enough to be blessed with any luxuries, chances are good that some guys with guns will show up to take them away. That's why you need either a bigger gun... or Blair Williams.
