There's been alot of talk in the past few days about Christian Bale, who plays John Connor, not being the star of this film, and it turns out that is in fact true. He might only end up in a few scenes, although he's supposedly scheduled for a bigger role in the next one. The story rather revolves around a character named Marcus who was put out of comission (?) before the nuclear destruction on Skynet's Judgement day and wakes up about 15 years before the future we see in the original Terminator films. That makes the year about 2015 or so.

Marcus is supposedly a tough guy and the world he finds is horrifying, starvation, radiation poising, etc.. all our favorite PA stuff. Then there's John Connor whose trying to bring back some semblance of society and organize a resistance. Marcus will also be in the next 2 of the franchise, which will also include a tough leading lady. And not to be outdone, there is supposed to be some involvement from Reese from the original film!

Last but not least: "A big aspect of the story is the degrees of difference between a human and a Terminator. By which I mean cyborgs. By which I mean human brains in robot bodies."
