Resist Or Be Terminated - Skynet Research Viral Updates

Resist Or Be Terminated

No, it's not Judgment Day just yet (that's not until May), but some viral marketing updates have started to hit on the Terminator Salvation front. So far we've covered the Skynet Research website quite extensively, but since it appeared in February, there haven't been any major updates to the site besides all the basics. As we all know, Skynet (or Cyberdyne) is the company that gains control over the machines and starts the war against the humans. So they're not on our side. And someone inside the company has started to alert us of who they are and what exactly they're trying to do - Resist Or Be Terminated.

There isn't much on that blog just yet, but there are a few interesting updates. An e-mail was sent out earlier today to everyone who signed up on the Skynet Research site saying: "Skynet Research is experiencing technical difficulties on our corporate website. A networking error has generated interference in the audio presentation. Do not be alarmed. Skynet Research is doing everything in our power to resolve this technical issue as quickly as possible and resume normal operation." An audio file was discovered and after being slowed down (listen via YouTube), it becomes a weird radio transmission from the future.

The latest update on the blog talks about Terrifying Images Found in Skynet Security Feed and some additional info regarding alarming discoveries at Skynet. Now this is getting interesting. We're not sure what the heck is going on, but there is a lot coming out of the woodwork, and it seems like this blog is going to be the central location for the Resistance. "A 'malfunction' occurred while the Skynet system was feeding information back to his laptop, causing horrific images to display on screen: Human beings horded like cattle into some kind of containment area, while a (Skynet?) security camera looked on." What's next?

    I feel like this movie is going to crack my top five list pretty easily. Of course there are many that have that potential this summer. I would have to say that this definately is one of the better years in cinema history, I mean Transformers, Public Enemies, The Boat That Rocked, Watchmen, Wolverine, Star Trek, Angels and Demons, Up, Harry Potter, Where the Wild Things Are, and of course the big one Avatar

  • This viral is the best I've seen since TDK. I've been following the one for 2012 too and that one's really lame. I hope the "What's in the Box" video posted earlier ends up being a viral for something.
  • Dr. Manhatten
    @ 13, it was already established the "What's in the Box" Video is just a Half Life 2 Video.
  • Thanks for the info Dr. Manhatten, I wasn't aware of that.
  • J.White
    ***So we cant get to the JOIN THE RESISTANCE page now right?
  • Looks like another resistance site has been discovered here: Don't know how real it is, but it's good to see this campaign growing... I think there is a big human resistance being organized, but I'm not so sure yet?
  • JC has nothing to do with the T4 ARG . It is /was part of an ARG for TSCC on fox .
  • Deeder
    I beg to differ. I believe you'll be a bit surprised by what these folks @ are brewing. In fact, I'd go as far as to say 'stay tuned' Particularly over the next few days. Source says they're about to drop something.
  • JC
    Well the source code has all the names of the tv show characters in there , and it was discovered in 07 or 08 during an ARG for the Sarah Conner chronicles , but hey lets just ignor the facts ...not like the wb ARG is really trying anyway . Not to mention I'm sure they would have a more convincing if not ...committed voice over (no offence ) Oh and last but not least I contacted the site owner and he confirmed ........drum roll please ............. No Affiliation to the current WB ARG .
  • Well to set the record straight... THR is NOT affiliated with Warner Brothers, Fox, Salvation, or TSCC. and Deeder, please contact me in reference to your post. I'm sure you know how to get a hold of me.
  • I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie I can't help to notice how closely the voice on is to that voice used in the Resident Evil comericals. "The Umbrella Corporation brings to you... product". These, sites, they're both distributed from Warner Bros. correct? ::
  • Hi guys! Just to set the record straight, I'm the voice of Skynet Reasearch and I'm actually NOT the voice of the Resident Evil commercials....though I'd love to be at some point! :) Hope you are all enjoying the site! -September
