McG Talks Terminator 5 + New Photos and TV Spots

terminatorsalvation-3-050409Terminator Salvation is still about two weeks away, but it’s never too late to begin discussing the future of the franchise, and that’s exactly what director McG did in a new interview.  As is widely known, Terminator Salvation is the first film in a planned three-picture trilogy.  Here’s what McG told Film Journal (could be considered a spoiler) about the second chapter:

“McG is already looking ahead to the next chapter in what the studio hopes will be another trilogy. “I strongly suspect the next movie is going to take place in a [pre-Judgment Day] 2011,” McG reveals. “John Connor is going to travel back in time and he’s going to have to galvanize the militaries of the world for an impending Skynet invasion. They’ve figured out time travel to the degree where they can send more than one naked entity. So you’re going to have hunter killers and transports and harvesters and everything arriving in our time and Connor fighting back with conventional military warfare, which I think is going to be fucking awesome. I also think he’s going to meet a scientist that’s going to look a lot like present-day Robert Patrick [who famously played the T-1000 in Terminator 2], talking about stem-cell research and how we can all live as idealized, younger versions of ourselves.”

Very interesting. Head on over to Film Journal to read the full interview.

There’s also a new batch of photos (one of which I’ve included above), concept art, storyboard and TV spots from the film.  Check it all out after the jump.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator Salvation Cameo More Likely

After an extended will he/won’t he period, it looks like a cameo from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger is getting nearing a possibility.  In a webcast interview yesterday, Schwarzenegger told blogger Bill Bradley that he has met with Terminator Salvation director McG and that he agreed to be in the film as long as he didn’t […]

McG Talks ‘Terminator’ Ending + Schwarzenegger and Hamilton Cameos

terminatorsalvation-042009It looks like there may be some disappointment at the ending of Terminator Salvation.  Director McG told MTV Movies Blog that because the ending leaves things open for the planned sequels, it’ll more than likely divide the audience:

The ending is indeed elliptical. And it challenges the audience. It’s not a happy little bow of an ending at all. The ending is tough and requires reflection, and in some degrees it bifurcates the audience. You walk back to the car and one person thinks it means this, and the other person thinks it means that.

McG also discussed the much-rumored confirmed/unconfirmed cameo from Arnold Schwarzenegger.  The director insists that Terry Crews’ assertion last week that the current California governor was confirmed to be in the film is wrong, telling MTV “[t]he jury is still out” on whether he’ll return.  Then again, the T-800 will stay play a heavy part in the film regardless of the Arnold cameo:

“This film is largely about Skynet collecting human tissue in the interest of creating lifelike tissue for the T-800, which is the Schwarzenegger character,” McG explained. “And if you think about it, we had to go through a lot of lab rats to get to the polio vaccine. Skynet has to go through a lot of human beings to get to that realistic T-800. Kyle Reese always talks about the T-600 being easy to recognize — a rubber skin, prosthetic look. We’ve got two T-600s in the film, but it’s [about] the coming of the T-800, which represents lifelike human flesh being grown in order to get to that level of proficiency.”
