This is the oral history of that conflict, told by an international cast of survivors who experienced this long and bloody confrontation with the machines.

Thank God, for John Conner! The last, best hope for humanity! There is no fate but what we make!!!!

And thank the Oracle Neo took the red pill!

 

I'm pickingon the film unfairly but the basic premise does read exactly like those famous films. I'm sure the details and execution are and will be different.

"This is the oral history of that conflict, told by an international cast of survivors who experienced this long and bloody confrontation."

 Actually, monkey, I think this sounds a lot more like World War Z with robots instead of zombies.  And, if done right, will probably be better than the tide of undead lemmings that appears to be the movie version of said book.

Yes agree with that monkeyfoot and I'd add World War Z to the hodgepodge of films it seems to mirror. Anyway I've always said that originality is overrated, most films are derivatives of other films. It's about doing it well maybe adding a few changes not to mention...

...this is mother-effing Spielberg so you know it's going to be awesome regardless.

ooops, didn't see Cap's comment.

 Nolan took Interstellar which had been on Spielbergo's radar.  What's next for Spielberg if this is on hold? We need more Spielberg damnit.

 Nevermind, just read Spielberg is working on the script to make it more personal and will most like be like a 7 month delay.

Spielberg also has Gods and Kings on his plate. I believe that's the title anyway. About Moses

I Robot anyone?  No big deal for the hold for me.  I hope Arnold gets his robots in working order soon.  I love scandles that make people work again.

I actually just finished reading this book yesterday.  It's pretty good, but extremely reminicent of World War Z.  I really wouldn't liken the story to anything in the Terminator franchise.  It's a very different story from that, and certainly no time travel involved.  The movie version of I, Robot doesn't really cover it either, aside from the notion of household robots.  Certainly nothing like The Matrix, either. 

It will make a good movie that can readily stand apart from other 'machines gone wrong' stories, especially with Spielberg at the helm.

 Agree with you, Monkeyfoot.

Sounds like 'Terminator Revisited".
