With only two weeks to go before John Connor (Christian Bale) renews his battle with the machines in Terminator Salvation, Warner Bros. Pictures has released some new clips from the film online. One of those new videos is an extended four minute look into the action taking place in this fourth installment of the popular franchise. We're passing it along here but if you want to go into the movie surprised about certain aspects of the story, the best course of action would be to hold off from watching it. Do you have the will power to say no?
Here's the test. You can watch the four minute clip at Apple.
You can also watch one of the clips in the video player below courtesy of IGN. This next film, the first part of a planned trilogy, stars Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Moon Bloodgood, Bryce Dallas Howard, Common, Jane Alexander and Helena Bonham Carter. Director McG led the production, based on a script by John Brancato and Michael Ferris.
