Terminator: The Dark Years (A Future War Story)

  • Published on:  4/6/2020
  • Terminator: The Dark Years is a fan-edit/proof-of-concept for the complete story of Kyle Reese, John Connor, and the Resistance during the future war. (An extended version of my video Terminator: Relics)

    Using repurposed footage from the entire franchise including films, tv shows, games, and even theme-park attractions, this is a story featuring Christian Bale, Linda Hamilton, Anton Yelchin, Michael Biehn, Edward Furlong, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Summer Glau, Brian Austin Green, Jason Clarke, MacKenzie Davis, and more surprises.

    In this alternate future, all of the characters from the films and tv shows co-exist. The timeline keeps repeating and making minute changes. As the story unfolds, familiar moments play out in dramatically different ways. In this story, John and the resistance will have to defeat the T-800, T-1000, T-X, T-3000, Harvesters, Rev-9, and several others.

    I've added blood to several scenes to return the series to its horror roots and give the film a bleak tone. I hope this edit instills an array of emotions, but most importantly, a sense of sadness.

    The intention of this project is to create something nostalgic, yet new. I hope to appeal to every Terminator fan.
    If you enjoy the video, please like/share it so more Terminator fans can see it.
    CAUTION: Pressing Play Will Activate Skynet

    (The goal of the video is to encourage producers to invest in a Terminator Film or TV Show that leans heavily into the horror genre...)
