The Verge - "Terminator Resurrected"
"One of the challenges was that … now we have a different set of fears [than the kind of paranoia used in Terminator 1]," Taylor says. "Technology is scary to us in a different way. Most people aren’t lying awake at night worrying about nuclear threat, but we are unnerved by a lot of how technology is moving into our lives and starting to infuse our lives. We [the filmmakers] question whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing."
It’s hard to imagine a new Terminator film actually getting that thoughtful — after all, these movies are really about running away from handsome robots. And with an initial trailer for Genisys showing more ludicrous action than in any prior Terminator film, it’s becoming even harder to see how carefully these ideas will fit in. Still, people are thinking about these things on set, and that should leave some hope that they’ll make it into the actual picture."
