It's no secret that the Terminator franchise is in trouble. Minus the ill-fated television series, the films have been on a downward spiral since T2. The series needs something fresh to bring old fans back to the series and entice new ones without using Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'm sharing this animated movie pitch because I think German Bruce Stirling John Knox is on to something here. I'm so tired of films concerned with the timeline! Give me a film that shows Skynet and humans in an all-out war with as much of the budget as possible launched at the effects and not making Arnold look like he's in his late 30s!
