First Look: ‘Terminator Salvation’
Here’s a first-look image from one of the most promising films of 2009, “Terminator Salvation.”
Yes, that’s right, I absolutely think the film has the chance to be great, an opinion formed when I visited the set, watched quite a bit of footage and spent time talking to the cast and director McG about the premise and tone of the film. To be candid, I had gone to the New Mexico set with a considerable amount of skepticism but after learning about the grim tale of the film, I’m a true believer … or, at the very least, a true optimist.
This scene shows Christian Bale as the adult John Connor of 2018 where he and humanity are locked in an ugly (and losing) battle with the murderous machines of Skynet. The film opens May 22 and I will be writing a lot more about it between now and then.
