Terminator: Salvation

Recommended Posts

DC Direct has revealed new busts for Terminator Salvation, hitting theaters on May 22. All busts are hand-painted, cold-cast in porcelain, feature a base incorporating both human and Terminator skulls and are packaged in a 4-color box. They cost $79.99 each. Pictured below are the busts for the T-600, Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), Blair Williams (Moon Bloodgood), Kyle Reese (Anton Yelchin), and the classified T-RIP.

 

In the highly anticipated new installment of "The Terminator" film franchise, set in post-apocalyptic 2018, Christian Bale stars as John Connor, the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.

Since summer/fall, rumors have persisted that Arnold Schwarzenegger will appear in Terminator Salvation in some form. Fan site The Arnold Fans (via moviehole) recently spoke with the governor himself about these possibilities. When asked about whether or not hewould appear in T4, the site had this to say:

 

Governor Arnold, perhaps under restraints by McG and the film studio, answers only with the body language and a smile of “You never know.” Should we take that as a yes? The tease was promising but it’s too soon to get an official answer.

This non-denial seems to corroborate previous stories about how McG is trying to use technology to digitally graft Arnold’s face onto the T800 in the film.

 

I’m typically not the type of person that sees much value in these sorts of cameos. I’m a Trek fan and although it warmed my heart that Leonard Nimoy would be making in appearance in JJ Abram’s new film, I wasn’t terribly elated about it. I think that when you’re taking a series in a whole new direction, you might as well focus on new and exciting story/characters, rather than being tied to the old.

 

That being said, I would actually push for an Arnold appearance in the new Terminator film. The Terminator is one of the films that made Schwarzeneggar’s career, and it’s what he became synonymous with in the 1990s. It feels like for the huge directional shift they are taking for this franchise, a Schwarzennegar cameo would help to tie everything together. However, if the technology they are trying to use isn’t completely seamless (and according to reports, it might not be there yet), it has the potential to be something that dramatically detracts from the film, rather than adds to it.

Warner Bros. has provided ComingSoon.net with a cool new teaser poster for McG's Terminator: Salvation, the fourth installment in the Terminator saga, which is set to be released on Memorial Day weekend 2009. The poster is based on the Flash Poster posted on the official site a few months back, but this is the one you'll be seeing in theaters soon.

Yet another little update from Entertainment Weekly’s posting of various new images this morning. This time around we see some new shots from McG’s Terminator Salvation, including one shot with John Connor (Christian Bale) coming in close to a T-600. All signs continue to point to this movie being at least solid. From what I can tell, it is going to be more than solid.

 

Terminator Salvation hits theaters on May 22, 2009. Check out the two new images below.

MTV reports that Danny Elfman has signed on to compose the score for Terminator Salvation.

 

"I just started yesterday," Elfman said. He added that the original "Terminator" theme by composer Brad Fiedel was not in use yet. "I think if it comes up and it seems appropriate, we will [use it]. And if it doesn't, we [won't]."

There's been a lot of rumors about the return of the "Governator" Arnold Schwarzenegger for McG's upcoming Terminator Salvation, and while McG remained mum about whether these rumors were true at a special Terminator Salvation roadshow event on Monday night, ComingSoon.net did see some cool footage and learned a lot about the plot and the direction for the upcoming franchise relaunch.

 

We'll save that for our comprehensive write-up of the event which you can read sometime tomorrow, though we may have figured out one of the "secrets" McG alluded to during the presentation. After the presentation was over, we talked with McG at the cocktail reception that followed and asked him whether he planned on doing any sort of recap of the first three movies as an introduction for those who didn't get a chance to see them. He said they were still trying to figure out what to do, but one option they came up with was to have Sarah Connor do a voiceover to open the movie. We didn't press him on this idea he tossed out, but we're now wondering whether maybe he was going to try and convince Linda Hamilton, the original Sarah Connor, to come out of "Terminator" retirement to provide that voiceover or just find a soundalike. The former option certainly would be a nice surprise for longtime fans of the series if they could make it happen.

 

Earlier in the Q & A segment of the presentation, McG was asked about the plans to shoot two back-to-back sequels to Terminator Salvation and he released another tidbit of what to expect in a fifth movie if it were to happen. He has spent some time with Jonah Nolan arcing out what the story for the next two movies might be and he hinted that "time travel has yet to be explored" in the upcoming movie, and that it would be one of the themes of the next movie. Since the plot of "Salvation" involves Christian Bale's John Connor trying to save Anton Yelchin's Kyle Reese, who would later go back in time and father John, a sequel may deal with some of the things leading up to Kyle going back in time to save Sarah from the original T-800.

 

So that's two quick teases from the event. Check back soon for our full recap of the Terminator Salvation Roadshow Event.

I hope I end up eating crow with this thought, but I am NOT feeling Anton Yelchin as Kyle Reese.

I remember my first reaction upon hearing that was . . . 'Uhh, what!?'

All due respect to Yelchin but it's like casting Colin Hanks in the lead of a Bullitt remake.

I'm just not a fan of tossing aside ALL of my preconceived notions of a character when Hollywood decides to reinvent something.

And I also hate to typecast an actor, but if Yelchin was going up for the part of Snake Plissken I wouldn't even look at him for it.

Why? 'Cause it'd be ridiculous ;) Don't even bring up the studio's reticence to go with Kurt Russell way back when. Assume I know that.

I'm saying what I'm saying ANYWAY :)

Has nothing to do with his acting talent or him in general, it has everything to do with smart and judicious casting.

Like I mentioned it's 2018 as opposed to 2029, so I can somewhat buy him as a teenage Kyle Reese.

Following hot on the heels of recent roadshow presentations for Zack Snyder's Watchmen, J.J. Abrams' Star Trek and DreamWorks Animation's Monsters vs. Aliens, Warner Bros. brought director McG to New York City to preview footage of his upcoming Terminator Salvation for select press.

 

McG got a lot of people excited for his relaunch of the franchise after previewing early footage at Comic-Con International, but he was ready to screen entire scenes this time even if most of them were still unfinished with a lot of work still to be done by FX houses Industrial Light & Magic and Asylum.

 

The T-600 Model from Comic-Con was back on display, all eyes flashing, and the presentation began with a short bit of footage introducing John Connor to the world of 2018, showing his arrival with a group of soldiers in a helicopter. The always excitable McG was introduced by producer Dan Lin, and he bound onto the stage wearing a jean jacket that probably would have looked pretty cool back when the original "Terminator" came out*. He began by talking about the genesis of the project and how he came onboard. At first, he was dubious of the project, because he didn't know why they needed another "Terminator" movie, having been a fan of the first two movies and other sci-fi classics from that time period like Alien and Blade Runner. Two specific things convinced him it was worth pursuing, the first being the idea that the movie would take place after "Judgment Day" and that it wouldn't necessarily be a 4th "Terminator" movie but a new beginning. (McG cleverly slipped in comparisons to Batman Begins and Casino Royale, two successful franchise relaunches.) The second was realizing how resonant the idea of technology taking over might be with people who are obsessed with their iPods and BlackBerry's, so he was excited to make a story that could explore the franchise's themes of "that which makes us great will be our undoing."

Rumors of cameo appearances in Terminator Salvation refuse to die. E! online reports that at a New York preview screening of the film on Monday, McG was asked by producer Dan Lin what surprises the film might have in store, to which he responded, “I can’t talk about it. I can’t talk about the governor of California.” I wonder what he was getting at exactly…

 

On top of that, we’ve also heard from Coming Soon reporting from the same event that there’s a possibility Sarah Connor might appear in the series: “After the presentation was over, we talked with McG at the cocktail reception that followed and asked him whether he planned on doing any sort of recap of the first two movies as an introduction for those who didn’t get a chance to see them. He said they were still trying to figure out what to do, but one option they came up with was to have Sarah Connor do a voiceover to open the movie.”

That's no Transformer you're looking at, that's a Terminator! Last year the big summer battle was between Iron Man and The Dark Knight, this year the biggest battle is going to be between Terminator Salvation and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Over on his own website, Michael Bay has taken a shot at McG and his "duplicate Transformer size robots." The director wrote an update on the Official Michael Bay Forums hyping up his upcoming Transformers 2 and saying that they've been waiting for all the other big summer movies to "get their stuff out" before they show us the first footage from Transformers.

During a screening in Hollywood of footage from Terminator: Salvation on Wednesday, director McG revealed a wealth of new details about his upcoming film, including its potential rating, running time, whether Arnold Schwarzenegger will be involved and what he really thinks of Michael Bay.

 

The following is an edited version of the session from the event.

 

Will we get to see the film in IMAX?

 

McG: I wanted to shoot the film with this dead stock [old film that has been distressed to give the movie a desaturated look]. Therefore it wasn't conducive to shooting it in IMAX format. But we're going to bump it up to IMAX. We are going to bump it up, and it holds up very nicely, and it looks and sounds that much more impactful. But one price we had to pay for making those choices was that we didn't shoot in IMAX.

Terminator series star Linda Hamilton has confirmed to MTV that she is in active negotiations with Warner Bros to reprise her role of Sarah Connor in Terminator Salvation. Last month director McG said that they were considering an option that would allow them to have “Sarah Connor do a voice over to open the movie.” Apparently that’s now the plan.

 

I would probably be very happy to loan my voice depending on what the material is,” Hamilton told MTV. “Wait and see. They’re already writing it. We’ve been negotiating it.

And while I think that a Sarah Connor voice over is the perfect way to introduce the audience to the post-apocalyptic world of the future, it doesn’t exactly seem like a juicy role. Some fans expected Hamilton to turn down the opportunity because the actress turned down an offer to be in Terminator 3 because she thought the character was “disposable” and “negligible”.

In all fairness to Linda Hamilton, I think the situations are pretty different. For T3, fans were upset that Cameron wasn't returning, NOW the property has moved past that and it is just assumed Cameorn will never have involvement again.

 

I'd say the buzz about Salvation is quite a bit better than it was for T3 as well. The movie certainly looks better to me.

I thought one of the reason she passed on T3 was because she didn't want to have go through all the working out and training like she did for T2.

Say what you want about Christian Bale, and we often have great things to say, the man has got us talking about Terminator Salvation. Now he’s the one talking about the film, and we have pics to prove it.

 

The latest issue of Empire Magazine has an exclusive interview with Bale, and offers a great image of one of the deadly machines grabbing hold of Bale’s beautiful face. Did Bale proceed to tell the Terminator that they were done professionally? We doubt it. But we’re sure that that the interview will be as entertaining as the image. And when we say the image, we are referring to the cover shot, not the image in our heads of Bale going ape shit on a Terminator for stepping into his shot.

In preparation for the new Terminator Salvation trailer (read our description here!) coming online at 4pm PT on Monday, Yahoo! Movies has debuted new posters and photos from the anticipated May 21 release. Directed by McG, the film stars Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Bryce Dallas Howard, Moon Bloodgood and Common.

 

You can check out the posters and photos by going here or clicking the posters below!

Even going back to Comic-Con in San Diego last year, director McG has not been committing to what his upcoming franchise relaunch Terminator Salvation would be rated, saying that Warner Bros.' President of Production Jeff Robinov didn't care and just wanted McG to make the best movie he could. Ever since then, McG had cited The Dark Knight (PG-13), The Matrix ® as two of the movies made under Robinov's regime that proved that ratings don't really matter either way.

 

Today, during the WonderCon panel, McG mentioned having a topless scene of the film's lovely heroine Moon Bloodgood, who is being seen as a homage to Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor, and in his usual flair of showmanship, he put it to the audience whether or not they want to see that scene in the movie. Needless to say, the mostly male audience enthusiastically chose the former.

The trailer that debuted at WonderCon in San Francisco over the weekend will be unveiled on Entertainment Weekly/The Insider tonight. Check out a teaser video after the jump.

 

Here's what we saw at WonderCon: The trailer opens with Christian Bale's voice-over, with the by-now familiar image of him shooting a Terminator robot head stuck under the tread of a helicopter. A title card flashes with the date 2018; we find out that machines now outnumber humans.

 

There are quick shots of hundreds of humans trapped in holding pens. John Connor speaks into a radio: "If you can hear this, you are the Resistance." A succession of quick cuts of the motorcycle terminators giving chase, speeding along a road, a shot of the gigantic Harvester plucking humans out of the wreckage of a 7-Eleven. Connor's voice refers to replicating human tissue.

 

Kate Connor (Bryce Dallas Howard) and John confront a chained Marcus (Sam Worthington). "You think you're human," John says. "I am human," Marcus says. "Let him look," Connor says. Marcus looks down, sees his exposed chest and screams.

 

More quick cuts: the helicopter crash, a hunter-killer blowing up a bridge, Kate and John kissing, a collapsing building. Connor stands in a lake, training a pistol on Marcus. Marcus, his face half ruined, exposing what appears to be metal underneath, tells John: "I'm the only hope you have." Then the trailer cuts to an overhead shot of a city, two explosions forming the eyes of a cyborg face. Terminator Salvation opens May 21.

Here are some facts about the film. I thought it was cool that Johnathan Nolan worked on the re-writes and Bale's request was pretty cool.

Also, the new trailer was pretty damn impressive. I didn't care for the idea of Marcus, but after this trailer, I find it be pretty intruiging.

This is the third movie this year I've been looking forward to, and it had better not disappoint, like the other two (One much less than the other). From all that I've seen from clips and trailers, this looks pretty fucking good so far. I don't trust that Mcg though!

 

New four minute trailer at the link. It's good to see Michael Ironside in a physical role again :P
