Paramount Pictures’ The Terminator reboot being compared to Back to the Future Part II…
Even with an April shoot scheduled for the new Terminator film, Terminator: Genesis, plot points have been incredibly slim. Yet, our friends at Moviehole have scrapped together some shocking insider details that reveal the “reboot” takes place in an alternate timeline, as opposed to retelling the exact same story.
Their source tells them that a perfect comparison title is Back to the Future Part II. “By that, he/she means that while Genesis encompasses an original plot, it also – like Back to the Future Part II, which saw Marty and Doc having to revisit the events of 1955 again for the film’s last quarter – returns to and revisits some of the most memorable moments from the first two Terminator movies.”
Better explaining, “Thanks to that ever-dependable alternate timeline device, and time-travel, Alan Taylor’s film will take us back and forward between the future, 1984 (The Terminator), 1991 (Terminator 2 : Judgement Day) and other important and influential time periods in the life of the Connor family.”
What’s incredibly unique about this concept is that the viewers will get to see scenes that happened off camera – such as scenes with young Sarah and her parents – as well as unique new reinterpretations of scenes from James Cameron’s first two films.
There’s a lot more that can be digested over at Moviehole…
