Some good news emerged about Terminator Salvation at San Diego Comic Con over the weekend. [Read more…]
With the recent spate of comic book-based movies, we’re in a golden age. It is no longer just okay to throw characters onto the screen with poor dialogue and ludicrous scenarios. The bar has been raised every summer. And the bar is now sky high. Now comic book movies must face the dizzying heights achieved by Christopher Nolan and ‘The Dark Knight.’ [Read more…]
Happy Friday, Gizmodo posted this pic of a badass John Connor (Christian Bale) about to blow away a Terminator in this still. Despite McG, I can feel the hype building. Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
Christopher Nolan is arguably one of the most interesting and talented directors to emerge in the past ten years. His films have received both commercial and critical praise, and his latest, ‘The Dark Knight,’ has been receiving so much praise, and is poised to be the biggest hit of the summer.
Nolan, a graduate of Haileybury College, grew up in the Chicago area, making films with his Dad’s Super 8 Camera. After studying English literature at University College London, he filmed several shorts for the college’s film society. He made his first feature in 1996, titled ‘Following’ [Read more…]
Moon Bloodgood who takes the award for most interesting name I’ve heard this week, is in final negotiations to star as the female lead in the fourth Terminator film. Her character will be a member of the resistance.
The former Laker Girl was last seen in the short lived time travel series, Journeyman.
Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins stars Christian Bale, Sam Worthington, and Anton Yelchin.
If you’ve forgotten, the film will begin lensing May 5 with McG at the helm, with a planned Summer 2009 release.

Terminator 3 was a complete and utter disappointment.
Granted I’ve really only seen it once, and there have been times where things are better on the second viewing, but nothing about this film inspires me to view itagain.
That being said, on paper, there are a lot of possibilities that
the franchise could be rebooted by putting Christian Bale in
the role of John Connor in Terminator Salvation. However, with McG in the director’s seat, the geek in me is slightly nervous. Can you honestly trust someone with three letters in their name? But seriously, Charlie’s Angels, eh, maybe he can do it, but I would have loved to see someone much darker tackle this.
The story is under wraps, but it is part of a new trilogy, and follows John Connor leading a group of survivors, attempting to stop Skynet, who has destroyed much of the human race. The film is set to begin shooting in May for a Memorial Day Weekend 2009 release.
