The future of the human race is looking pretty grim in John Connor's world — especially with all the new-fangled robots director McG is populating the post-Judgment Day world with. We took a closer look at the trailer for Terminator Salvation, and examined each of the new robotic enemies humanity will have to face. Click through for your first real look at Harvesters, Hydrobots and the T-600. Spoilers ahead.
Human Lab Rats
Humans are penned up in cages, for what we can assume from previous plot leaks are experiments. In the trailer, you can see one poor soul frantically climbing out of the pen with dozens of humans below. If you look directly over his shoulder you can see his robot prison guard, which up close looks like this...
T4 director McG has explained that he is interested in exploring the in between periods of Skynet's experimentation. McG called the T-600 a, "bigger, grimier, nastier version that preceded the T-800....they're easier to spot but they pack a mini gun and carry kick ass fire power. They're eight-foot tall killers that prowl the badlands looking for anything with a heartbeat to terminate." And from the looks of this giant with a cannon for an arm, this very well could be the T-600.
A giant metal hand breaks through the ceiling and pulls out this puny human. It doesn't appear that it wants to harm the human, but capture him. So it could be an easy guess that this is a first look at the "Harvesters" as McG calls them, or the robots that are sent out to collect human specimens for robots to run experiments on.
Here's a closer look at the Hydrobots that patrol the waters of our future. The crew spent some time filming inside water tanks so it should be interesting how much the Hydro bots are utilized.
Terminator Dog Fighting?
At first glance in the trailer I thought this was a dead body, now I think there's a lady in the flight suit, a female pilot that ran into trouble with one of the Aerostat robots that patrol the skies of the future.
