I Wish I Hadn't Seen the New Terminator Trailer

If you listened to the MovieFilm gang's Terminator 2 commentary track a few weeks ago, you know that Brian Hall and I are massive fans of the franchise's past, even as we're cautious about its future. And while I'm not ready to write off the fifth installment, this summer's Terminator Genisys, just yet, I didn't see anything in the first trailer last December that made it must-see (as opposed to "gonna see it anyway, so whatever").

Well, the new full trailer dropped this morning, and while the must-see factor hasn't really risen, they do drop a pretty massive spoiler about the plot that I desperately wish I could un-see. I've been feeling generally frustrated with trailers giving away the farm lately, and seriously, this feels like Exhibit A. I won't reveal it here, but if you feel like crossing the rubicon, watch the second Genisys trailer below. Or, if you're smart, just wait 'till the thing hits theaters in a few months.
