New Terminator Salvation Clips, Plus McG Talks You Through Terminator 5

Terminator Salvation comes out tomorrow, but you can watch two more clips from this film today — and director McG talks Terminator 5. Eliza Dushku forecasts Dollhouse season two. Also: G.I. Joe, Transformers and Lost.


Terminator Salvation:

Another day, another review of this film. So Serena Kogan (Helen Bonham Carter) is the last face Marcus sees as he dies. John hears that his dad, Kyle Reese, has been captured and is en route to Skynet HQ, and realizes he must save Kyle — but without telling Kyle that John is his son. At one point, John looks at Marcus and asks, "Who are you?" And Marcus replies, "I'm the only hope you have." [Los Angeles Times]

Meanwhile, McG says that even though this film doesn't talk about the fact that Kate Connor is pregnant, it's a plot point that will be explored in Terminators 5 and 6 (if any.) The fate of that child will become a super important plot strand. Also in the fifth movie, McG wants to explore the coming of time travel, the genesis of Marcus, and the fate of John Connor — including the mooted trip back to a pre-Judgment Day era. [MTV]

And here are a couple more short clips, showing Connor's squad attacking a Skynet holding facility where the first experiments to create the T-800 are taking place, and Marcus' first clue that he might not be all human. [MTV]


G.I. Joe:

Marlon Wayons says that his character, Ripcord, has a romantic interest: "Scarlett" O'Hara (Rachel Nichols). [Black Voices]

Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen:

Actor Tony Todd (who played the CIA director in Chuck and a dictator in 24, will be voicing at least one of the Transformers in this film. [TLAMB]

Michael Bay posted a few new set pics, which aren't that exciting but do show off the military hardware, the Middle-East setting, and Shia LaBoeuf. [MichaelBay via IESB]

Dollhouse:

"Now we really get to have some fun," Eliza Dushku says of season two. Also, it sounds like she does have a significant role in the unaired episode, "Epitaph One," even though it supposedly features a totally different cast. So how will Echo be different in season two? She'll be more self-aware from the get-go, says Dushku:

It will give the audience a chance to connect with Echo more, because she's not just that blank slate. There's something behind her eyes creeping out. That's the center of the show - can you really erase someone's identity? The answer seems to be no.

Lost:

More speculation than spoilers, I guess: EW's Doc Jensen has a theory that everyone whom Jacob touched during his journey through Lostory will remember the "original" timeline after the timeline is changed by the hydrogen bomb going off. Which means Sawyer, Jin, Jack, Kate, Locke and Hurley will remember, but for everyone else, the original timeline was "always" the new version. He guesses there'll be a scene where Sawyer visits Juliet, pre-Island, and realizes she doesn't remember their time together. Cue hankies. [EW]

Michael Emerson doesn't think Ben will change much in the final season — but he's not sure how much longer Ben will survive, given that people are going to start dying more. [Onion AV Club via DocArzt]

Green Lantern: First Flight:

Who does Juliet Landau (Drusilla from Buffy and Angel) play in this new animated DVD? According to Warner Bros., "Landau offers a Cajun-style vocal performance for Labella, a mistress of the seedier side of the universe in which the Green Lantern Corps patrol." A Cajun alien? Okay. And in these stills, she tries to dissuade Sinestro from pursuing additional, potentially deadly interrogation. And she fears the power of the purple sphere, and what Sinestro aims to do with it.
