Terminator 3 was an abominable mess of guns, trucks and aging Austrians. Terminator 4 looks different. Literally. Arnie’s second term as the Governator of California means that the forth film will be Schwarzenegger-less – which may well be a good thing.

Random Austro-meatpacker Roland Kickinger will be replacing him, but with Christian “Batman” Bale playing resistance leader John Connor, we don’t much care. Flickering and juddering, the trailer leaves a lot to the imagination, but looks ten times better than the series’ third outing. Then again, so does a rotting cat.
