Terminator Salvation trailer on Entertainment Tonight

I remember the good old days, before the Internet, when Entertainment Tonight was the only place to see trailers early, or to see trailers outside of a theater at all. I watched countless episodes in the mid-90s hoping to see an early trailer to this summer blockbuster or that one. Of course, that's now a needless and bygone task, but here's an ode to the olden days. Here's the preview (of the preview, it seems) for Terminator 4: Salvation: The Future Begins (or whatever it ends up being called on May 22nd).

As for the super brief clip, the emphasis is again on scope and scale (as opposed to Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines, which was pretty low-key). One could certainly argue that the final clip of the giant robot is an attempt to ape Transformers, but it's still pretty striking. Come what may, if Christan Bale liked the script, then there is no reason to think that the film won't be at least a solid entertainment. I'll try to update when the full trailer goes online (I presume) over the weekend.

I am cautiously optimistic about this new Terminator flick. McG is not the guy I would've chosen but the early footage does look pretty slick and CGI/real-world seamless. We'll see...
