Terminator 5 Pitch

I saw this fan trailer a year or two ago and was very impressed by it, I could picture a whole Terminator 5 story based on this trailer like a video pitch to how they could’ve done it.

This is the story I pictured watching this trailer:

I pictured modern times with John and Sarah Connor, but Judgment Day doesn’t happen in 2004 like Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines showed. But why? John and Sarah go about their lives after Cyberdyne was destroyed, little do they know, that they’re being watched by someone, or something. That unbeknownst to them, that Terminators have been building a Terminator army in secret. When suddenly, the shit hits the fan! Skynet slowly takes over the internet while Terminators and HKs begin trying to exterminating the human race. When John and Sarah see this, they are saved by two people they never thought they’d see again, The Terminator and Kyle Reese, “Come with us if you want to live.” They get them to safety where they meet the new Resistance led by (future) John Connor’s daughter Jane. They explain that sometime after 2018 in Terminator Salvation, due to the Connors destroying Cyberdyne and postponing Judgment Day to 2004, Skynet was able to gain more information and the Resistance lost the war, so a handful of resisters, Connor, the Terminator, Jane, and Kyle included travel back in time as a last ditch effort to stop Skynet. Ironic, because in the previous movie, Skynet tried to do the same thing. They were able to stop Cyber Research Systems from developing the software that would become Skynet. But Terminators led by the T-1000 followed them into the past and between the aftermath of T2 in 1994 and current time were building a Terminator and HK army without quit waiting until now to upload Skynet to the web. Future John Connor had disappeared after stopping Cyber Research Systems, probably dead, but had a secret weapon to stopping Skynet once and for all and left clues behind to this secret weapon. So the Terminator, John Connor, Sarah Connor, Kyle Reese, Jane Connor, and what’s left of the Resistance must follow the clues to find this weapon and stop Skynet once and for all before he hacks into government nuclear weapons and beginning Judgment Day dodging Terminators and HKs of all kind. Destiny comes early. You know, like the final season of Fringe.

 

Terminator 5 Timeline

This is what the timeline would be like if this movie was made.

That’s what I picture when I watch this trailer, and it would be awesome to see Schwarzenegger, Hamilton, Furlong, Biehn, and Patrick all in the same movie together.

To answer you questions regarding Sarah and Kyle. I haven’t thought of an explanation of why Sarah would be alive after dying of cancer in T3, but the best explanation is that because of the Resistance preventing Cyber Research from developing Skynet they started a new timeline where Sarah never developed cancer, the butterfly effect. As for Kyle, the best explanation is that, the past is past, Kyle Reese already impregnated Sarah Connor, the Kyle Reese we saw in T1 and this Kyle Reese are from separate timelines. The one from T1 is Kyle Reese A, this is Kyle Reese B, the grown up version of Kyle in Salvation. This would also explain why in Salvation, Skynet didn’t just kill Kyle Reese, because killing Kyle would make no difference, this isn’t Back to the Future, instead used him as bait to kill Connor. This would also work for an interesting subplot, that John finally meets his father and Sarah is reunited with the man she loves, but she is conflicted because he’s not Kyle Reese A, he’s not the man who would die to save her and the father of her son. Time travel is a bitch.

    A la cronología año por año debería enderezarse los eventos de 1997 desde posiblemente 2029 en donde se podía desplazarse en el tiempo , pudo ser que antes de enviar a Kyle Reese a 1984 , se hallan producido desplazamientos en el tiempo a 1997 ida y vuelta(John Connor y un grupo donde la TX y el T3000-T1000endoesqueletoT850- estubieron infiltrados).Esta situacion daria un nuevo relieve a los eventos de agosto de 1997 que ayudaria a explicar mas la historia.

    El reinicio justo de la saga en realidad es una secuela precuela entre las tramas de la 2da y 3era pelicula ,dando mas realismo a la 4ta en la escencia de las peliculas terminator tal cual son.He pensado que el año 1997 es demaciado importante como para dejarlo al azar o minimizar su interpretacion de los hecho de la trama; al igual me parece justo volver al escenario pasado-futuro de la trama 2029 y 2032 como eje de situaciones .El año 2018 y su historia podrian ser reutilizables con un pequeño trailer que redifiniera su historia de lo que sucediera alli y el genisys pudiera ser una historia que de pie a el desarrollo de la saga siguiendo la linea de tiempo original desde este universo alternativo que me convenzo es parte de las historias de cronicas (la serie) en mi opinion.Gustaria ver una continuacion que sea nombrada como la 4ta (Terminator 4 :Tiempo de Redencion) , otra la 5ta (Terminator 5 : Genesis de la Terminacion) y la 6ta ( Terminator 6 : Skynet Evolucion o Evolución de Skynet ,Skynet Evolution) desde la trama de los años 2029 o cercana (desde la historia de 2018) , 1997 y 2032.Estos son ejemplos de lo variable que puede ser en esta película el desenvolvimiento de la trama que pide reencontrarse con el exito inicial desde la calidad de esta alcansada años anteriores .

    Comparto la linea de tiempo para un hipotética 5ta trama luego de una cuarta entrega que seria una mejorada a la que se dio en el tiempo de 2018 .El año 1997 es perfecto para determinar una quinta entrega y eje de situacion , luego de una cuarta la que seria mejor en el tiempo de 2029 , para volver al futuro de 2032 en una sexta continuacion en donde sarah(sarah connor : linda hamilton) se desenvuelve como Kyle intentando defender a su hijo y dando un final mejor al inicial en 1984: sobrevivir. Tiempo de redencion-Genesis de la terminacion-Skynet evolucion son mis titulos propuestos en donde terminator y terminacion tienen un concepto mejor desarrollado quizas inverso al que se tuvo encuenta teniendo tales concepciones para desarrollar la historia dando un contenido mas completo y exacto.
