McG explained a huge chunk of Terminator Salvation's storyline, and new TV spots show off more Watchmen mayhem. There's also our first look at the Tahmoh/Eliza meeting on Dollhouse, plus Lost clips and Smallville pics.


Terminator Salvation:

During one of the press roundtables at Wondercon (when I was at a different table), McG explained more about T4:

We start this picture with Marcus [Sam Worthington] committing a rather substantial infraction. In fact, he's ultimately put to death, which is how he ends up with some metal rods in his body. And he learns that people-he doesn't believe that-but he learns from hanging out with these people that everybody deserves a second chance.

And we hear Sarah Connor's voice on tape, talking about surprise and immeasurable heartbreak, and telling John he must save the boy who will become his father, Kyle Reese. Also, Kyle sees someone make a huge sacrifice at the end of the movie, and that helps him realize that some must sacrifice so that others may live. That inspires him, ten years later, to leave everyone he loves behind so he can go back in time to save Sarah Connor. [Sci Fi Wire]
