    Gotta keep hope alive.

    The Terminator and Alien franchises are eerily similar to me. The first two of each are among the greatest movies of all time in any genre (IMHO). Everything since, not so much. To be kind.

    That article got the title right, Linda Hamilton is the best part of that trailer. The final scene and her line made me laugh. Great stuff!

    THE TERMINATOR

    Kyle Reese: He's not a man - a machine. A Terminator. A Cyberdyne Systems Model 101.
    Sarah Connor: A machine? Like a robot?
    Kyle Reese: Not a robot. A cyborg. A cybernetic organism.

    -------------------------------------------------------

    Kyle Reese: The Terminator's an infiltration unit. Part man, part machine. Underneath, it's a hyperalloy combat chassis,microprocessor-controlled, fully armored. Very tough. But outside, it's living human tissue. Flesh, skin, hair,blood, grown for the cyborgs.

    --------------------------------------------------------

    TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY

    [Sarah is treating the Terminator's bullet wounds]
    Sarah: John, help me with the light. [To Terminator]Will these heal up?
    Terminator: Yes.
    Sarah: Good. If you can't pass for human, you're not much good to us.
    John: How long do you live - I mean, last, or whatever?
    Terminator: A hundred and twenty years with my existing power cell.

    Sounds like Sarah Conner smokes Marlboro reds.

    I'm not up on my Terminator history. Why does she want to kill Arnold's Terminator character?

    From what I remember, he came back to help her and her son, and protected them from the other Terminator, no?

    That protector was lowered into a vat of molten iron.

    During the filming of T2, Linda Hamilton's personal trainers said she was a badass who got in phenomenal shape for the movie compared to her less athletic apperance in Terminator 1. The personal trainers said, however, that she absolutely refused to quit smoking Camel lights frequently even during her intense training.

    Yes in Terminator 2, it was made clear that folks like Cyberdyne systems who could find the brain chip or pieces of the Terminator could/would use them to design more, leading to another world apocalypse for mankind when they get smart and take over. Thus it was necessary to destroy Arnold's character even if he was trying to save them. It made for a poignant ending. Hope that helps! This sequel does look promising!

    So if Protector Arnold was destroyed in T2, who exactly is the older Protector Arnold in this one? Maybe a clone of the original Protector Arnold that no one knew about and has aged in hiding?

    All true. I've found the good Terminator movies (of which there are two) are best enjoyed by suspending disbelief a bit more than usual. I try not to get too hung up with all the alternative reality, time-travel "but wait, how would that be possible?" I'm just going to buy some popcorn, enjoy, and know that as long as Arnold is alive to be back, he will be back. I'll never forget seeing T2 the first time in a theater, and just being blown away. Looking forward to this one.

    It was cut from the final edition of Avengers: End Game.
