I just wanted to take a moment and say “Shame on you James Cameron” Skynet did not “Go Live” today and begin the inevitable destruction of mankind as you promises.
In what can only be described as shear boredom for millions of internet users today “Skynet” began trending on the web.
You may recall that during the Sarah Connor Chronicles the date when Skynet would launch and begin the termination of mankind was April 19, 2011 at 20:12 (8:12pm).
Cameron even took time out of his busy schedule to tell TMZ:
“Kyle Reese said in the first film that it was only ‘one possible future.’ Clearly, not the one we’re in. Maybe Kyle, Sarah, John and the T-800 changed things enough to steer us away from that possible future.”
Cameron continued with a bit of retrospection on our current society and new problems that have taken center stage since the Terminator series began, “Now instead of nuclear war and the machines taking over, we need to worry about global climate change. And the machines taking over. With everybody going through their lives bent over their Blackberries all day long, you could even argue the machines have already won.”
Okay so maybe Cameron didn’t change the date for the TV series by himself, but he did create The Terminator, hence, James Cameron lied, he’s like the Miss Cleo of my movie universe…Sigh.
Just kidding Cameron, just don’t make the same broken promises in Avatar 2.
