3 minute footage description...

The future. A barren wasteland with the smoking wreckage of a helicopter.

Radio: “Bravo 10, Bravo 10, is anyone there? Answer please. Come in. Anyone there? How many survivors are there?”

A survivor moves, it’s Christian Bale as John Connor.

Connor: “One.”

Radio: “Repeat.”

Connor: “...ONE!”

Cut to: Bale stepping over the corpse of a terminator.

Cut to: Bale face to face with Sam Worthington’s Marcus Wright.

Connor: “If I let you down, you’ll kill everyone in this room.”

Wright: “Not everyone, just you Connor. Because I don’t give a *beep* about you. I didn’t even know your name until two days ago.”

Connor: (whispered) “Kill me? We’ve been at war since before either of us even existed.”

Cut to: Marcus Wright standing in a wreckage strewn courtyard.

Wright: “Hey!”

Suddenly weapon fire shatters the silence and bullets begin chewing up the ground around him. Just as it seems he’s done for a figure dives out from out of shot and knocks him out of the line of fire. He looks up and it’s Antol Yelchin’s Kyle Reese.

Reese: “Come with me if you want to live.”

We see the barrel of a minigun blazing and a Terminator’s feet as it walks towards them, crushing a human skull beneath its weight.

Wright: (echoing Michael Biehn’s lines form the first film while talking to Reese) “What day is it? What year?”

Reese: “2018.”

Wright: “What happened here?”

Reese: “Judgement day happened.”

Cut to: a truck with a snow plough welded to the front crashing through obstacles on a road, a jeep driving through the desert, resistance fighters running across a train track and three humans jumping over a precipice with abseiling ropes attached to them.

Voice: “Go! Go! Go!”

Cut to: the burned face of a T-600, its metal skull showing through the ruin of its flesh.

Cut to: the silhouette of a terminator endoskeleton holding a gun, it’s eyes glow red against the darkness.

Cut to: A night shot of Moon Bloodgood’s Blair Williams standing outside with her back to us, topless. She turns around, her hands covering her modesty.

Cut to: figures running amidst explosions and gunfire, a figure on a motorbike flying through the air.

Cut to: John Connor and his men inside a bunker. There is a huge cybernetic arm tied to a table – it’s about seven feet long and topped with a claw. Connor crouches nest to the claw to study it and the claw comes to life, snapping at the air.

Cut to: A huge metal machine rearing into shot with red eyes and an enormous metal carapace. An inhuman howl fills the air.

Connor: “This is not the future that my mother told me about. Something has changed.”

The familiar Terminator beat hammers out.

Kate Connor: “If you saved us once in another future, you can save us in this one.”

Cut to: Reese turning to Connor.

Reese: “Who are you?”

Connor: “John Connor!”

Cut to: Bryce Dallas Howard’s Kate Connor running toward s the camera and screaming “John!”

Cut to: Connor face to face with Wright again.

Connor: “You tried killing my mother. You killed my father. You will not kill me.”

Cut to: A figure covered head to toe in mud and screaming into the night (could be Worthington or Bale – hard to tell).

Cut to: a terminator trapped under the landing strut of a helicopter. A gun barrel lowers to its skull and puts it out of its misery. The camera pans up to reveal John Connor looking decidedly mean.

Cut to: the inside of a building. A huge cybernetic arm crashes through the ceiling and grabs someone, pulling him through the hole in the roof. It’s the arm of a harvester, one of the machine’s huge man hunters.

Cut to: A terminator being crushed by a falling car.

End title comes up word by word: The. End. Begins.

Cut to: Bale lying prone, clearly in pain with a terminator’s hand descending towards his face.

Connor: “You son of a bitch!”

It claws furrows down the front of his face. He screams.
