wouldn't the movie basically be watching humans rebuild? that doesn't really scream Terminator movie to me.
Not necessarily. So far, the Terminator movies have only considered time travel in one direction - the past. What if a Terminator was sent into the future as a contingency? If SkyNet could not prevent its destruction, it would still have a chance of resurgence after humanity had let down its guard.
Anyway, I'm not saying it's what I want; I'm just trying to think of something other than retelling the same story over again.
