'Terminator 4 Epic Trailer'

Recommended Posts

Give me a couple of weeks and I could bash out a fantastic Terminator 4 script outline. In fact, anyone into comics with half a brain could, as they are comic book films without comic book antecedents. Sadly, Hollywood wants to drain the violence and misery out of the series to make them kid-proof, the puffs.

Yeah - I think T3 is much better film than T2....

Fucking ghastly child acting, and Cameron's typically naff mixing of ultra violence and silly moralising all the time (just when did he get clobbered on the head? I mean, Terminator and Aliens are things of genius. Then he goes and spoils it all by doing something stupid...).

But enough with the time travelling now. I want a seriously depressing war torn world, filled with nasty robots and things getting blown up.

That and lots of blood.

Lots and lots of blood.

You're in the wrong thread. the contraversial thread is over there.

Ah...that Star War Ep 1, 2 and 3 are much better than the original trilogy thread then :(

Several years ago I would have agreed with you but I'm not so sure now. I think the idea of a future war with robots is something that is great when imagined but it will probably only disappoint in reality. Take Star Wars as an example: when the Clone Wars were mentioned in a New Hope thousands of different images raced through your head about how cool the Clone Wars must have been with loads of Jedi's and shit. Yet the reality was rubbish (and probably would have been a disappointment no matter what Lucas had done).

Jesus fucking Christ.

That's almost as bad as Len Wiseman.

Die Hard = 18

Die Hard 2, 3 and 4 = 15

Wrong, Die Hard 2 is the only one that's still actually an 18. It's also the most violent by some margin.

Wrong. Die Hard 2 was originally a 15. I don't know if they've put some extra violence back in to raise it up for later versions.

I remember hiring it out of the video shop when I was 15.

We're all right and wrong according to IMDb, which suggests there's an uncut 18-rated video version around. Not that I've ever seen it in the shops.

Anyone know more?

iirc the original cinema / video releases were rated 15 with cuts to some violence (e.g. icicle in the eye!) and some of the bad language but the dvd version is the 'uncut' 18 rated version.

Look here for more info: http://www.melonfarmers.co.uk/hitsd.htm

Now if only we could get the uncut Die Hard With a Vengence in this country...

That site would be be better if there was less emphasis on porn stuff, though.

Well what do we make of this? A remake origin trilogy type thing?!

From Comingsoon.net

Variety reports that Warner Bros. has acquired North American distribution rights to Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, triggering an early 2008 production start for a film that seeks to reinvent the cyborg saga with a storyline to be told over a three-movie span.

WB plans to distribute "Terminator Salvation" in summer 2009.

The "Terminator" film franchise got a new lease on life in spring, when privately funded Halcyon and its co-CEOs Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson teamed with Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines executive producer Moritz Borman to acquire film, merchandising and licensing rights from ex-Carolco partners Andy Vajna and Mario Kassar. Kubicek, Anderson and Borman are producing the new film, with Peter D. Graves as executive producer.

WB had first right of negotiation for domestic theatrical and TV distribution rights because the studio played the same role on 2003's Jonathan Mostow-directed "Terminator 3."

The producers said that the new film will carry the size and scale of "Terminator 3," and will have an event-sized budget.

Sony Pictures Entertainment, which distributed "Terminator 3" in most overseas territories, is expected to get first crack at a reprise. Several other territories are spoken for, including Japan, where Toho-Towa is expected to distribute once again.

A screenplay has been completed by "Terminator 3" writers John Brancato and Michael Ferris, and the financiers and studio are close to locking a director. While industry buzz has Charlie's Angels director McG as the odds-on favorite for the assignment, the producers said no final decision had yet been made.

"This is set in the future, in a full-scale war between Skynet and humankind," Anderson told the trade.

Borman said: "The third film was really the conclusion of what happened in the 'now.' You will find the most-loved characters, but the intention here is to present a fresh new world and have this be the first of a trilogy."

The producers said it wasn't yet clear whether Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back for his fourth appearance in the franchise that launched his movie career. "T3" was the last film in which he starred before becoming governor of California.

"We've left it open for him to maybe do a cameo," Borman said. "He has an important job, as we know, and the final decision will be based on his desire and availability, along with what the director wants."

There was a Terminator 3 game on the Xbox that was pretty good that explored the reistance side of things. If the story was based on that, it could be pretty good.

McG Confirmed For Terminator 4?

We don't like having to say this and we're really really hoping that someone somewhere has gone this wrong, but JoBlo.com say they have received trustworthy confirmation that McG will be directing the fourth Terminator movie.

There have been rumours for a while that the Charlie's Angels director would shout orders on the first of the planned new trilogy, entitled Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, but rumours don't always come to fruition.

McG should probably be given the benefit of the doubt here, since he must have done something to convince Warner Bros that he's the best man for the job, but we worry that he's not sufficiently established as a director to handle one of the most anticipated events in movies: the war between Skynet and mankind. This needs to be absolutely spectacular to match what we've all had in our heads for over two decades. He's got some action style, if some difficulties holding a story together, so it could be that this movie either makes or breaks him. We'll hope for the latter.

Shooting is set to start early next year from a script by John Brancato and Michael Ferris (Terminator 3). With Arnie, Nick Stahl and Claire Danes not set to return, we're concerned that this could wind up not feeling like a part of the Terminator universe. Please let this work, please let this work, please let this work.

Oh dear.

If true.

Calm down, calm down. The original release was 15 and the uncut release was 18...

Holy Fuck - This stepped up a notch - Admittedly, not the most reliable source...(though Knowles is claiming this source has never put a foot wrong)

Christian Bale to Star in Terminator Salvation?

Source: Ain't It Cool News

November 21, 2007

Christian Bale (The Dark Knight, Batman Begins) has been cast as John Connor in Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, says Ain't It Cool News.

McG is directing the summer 2009 release, which has an early 2008 production start and seeks to reinvent the cyborg saga with a storyline to be told over a three-movie span. Warner Bros. will distribute domestically.

The screenplay was written by Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines duo John Brancato and Michael Ferris.

The film is set in the future, in a full-scale war between Skynet and humankind.

He seems a strange choice. If this is to be a trilogy that means he will go from one massive trilogy to another with no gap. Bale doesn't strike me as that sort of actor as he likes doing The Machinist and Rescue Dawn type films in-between. It isn't even like Terminator 4 is being made by a director that he would be dying to work with (which was the case with Batman and Nolan).

In terms of career, it does seem an odd choice for Bale. He can comfortably go from the small movie to massive stuff like The Dark Knight, and still do plenty of experimental stuff as well. This seems more like the studio throwing as much money as possible at him to give the project a bit more credibility. Perhaps they're working on Bale being a success as the new Batman so figure Terminator is aimed at a similar market so if they get Bale...

I think we're more likely to see Vin Diesal taking the role than Bale at this moment.

I don't know why but you can see him agreeing to do 3 Batman movies due to the cast and direction of Nolan. I can't see Bale agreeing to three Terminator movies with McG at the helm.
