Terminator: The Dark Years – Fan Edit

What is it about?

Terminator: The Dark Years is a fan-edit/proof-of-concept for the story of Kyle Reese, John Connor, & the Resistance during the future war.

This is not a prequel… For this edit, this is as an alternate future created from changing the timeline. I’ve created scenes using multiple films; it may cut from T4 to T1 to T3, so instead of acknowledging the origin of the footage, try to ignore the cuts and view the moment as a unique scene… For clarity: All of the events are occurring in chronological order.

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.

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, sad tone.

The intention of this project is to create something nostalgic, yet new. I tried to appeal to every Terminator fan.
