    Could still be all the leaked material is deliberately nonsense and deliberately spread to put us on the wrong foot, studios have been doing that for years now. It's rather suspicious it popped up so shortly after the trailer (which happens to be the only official material of any substance so far)

    One can hope.
    The sad thing that in the vast majority of cases, the early leaks turn out to be true.

    What.

    It's early but if this is an EG in-joke I have missed it.

    Surely this is all an orchestrated effort to create buzz or hype?

    That all sounds to absurd to be true.
    Sadly so. Apparently Carl goes to live its life in piece, because apparently self-termination isn't a thing anymore, and in doing so develops a conscience which allows it to feel guilt for what it did and thus sends Sarah co-ordinates of other terminators.

    Just read the script again. There must be some kind of madness over at Hollywood.

    How could Cameron spend decades hating on Alien 3 (for the same reasons I hated it), for killing off Hicks and Newt right at the beginning, because it destroys the motivation for his Aliens movie, years and years moaning about it, then in the end only go and kill John Connor in the first 3 minutes of the movie?

    Maybe James Cameron has contracted the same brain worms as Ridley Scott?

    Edit: I feel George Lucas also needs adding to this list.

    Maybe he sees them more as 'his' characters, so he can do whatever he wants. If another director/writer does it though, I guess he took umbrage.

    His reasons were rightfully not because they were his characters, but by killing Hicks and Newt so cheapily, it undermines the biggest motivation of Alien; which is Ridley taking on the motherly role to overcome all odds to save Newt. It's like a movie watching Forest Gump, or I dunno, 12 Years A Slave, and in the end after coming through the hardship, gets run over by a horse.
    It's why I also hated Alien 3 (even though it's quite watchable), as Aliens is one of my fav movies ever, and for a while I struggled to watch Aliens as Alien 3's cheap kill was such a gutpunch to me, as I was deeply connected to the narrative or Ripley and Newt.

    I thought killing them off in 3 so early gave it such a heavy fatalistic tone (even before I knew the words to explain the feeling) that I really enjoyed it. Seemed fitting for a franchise with a monster so perfect for fucking people up. I just wish Fincher got to make the film he wanted to make.

    As for Prom/Cov I will never understand prequels to horror films. Well prequels in general really but the whole point of horror creatures is that you don't understand them or can relate. As soon as you start explaining the genesis or motivations then the power is diminished and you don't have a horror franchise anymore. Also, and this is for prequels in general: if the story before the original was that compelling it would have been the starting point of the lore.

    As for Terminator, Salvation was the last I saw. It was finally going to be the future war. All I remember about it was some scuffle in a junk yard with some kids at day. Been done with it ever since.
