That’s right folks. In the week of The Dark Knight, when all we hoped for it came to pass, another Christian Bale film is sneaking out some teaser stuff. Not content with one mega huge franchise, he’s also part of another little-known, not-that-popular, could-do-with-more-action indie series. What’s it called again…oh yeah….Terminator something.
There are many reasons for our reaction to Terminator Salvation to vary from indifference to skepticism to outright hostility, but most can be summed up in one word: McG. The McDonalds happy meal of the directing world, we have every reason to fear the worst. But at least the marketing team are earning their retainer so far. The previously reported trailer gives some good hints and flashes, without being stupid enough to show us any real, judge-able footage just yet.
And today’s shot of John Connor? Bale’s just doing what he does best – kicking ass and taking names.
And thank jebus they’ve dropped the original cumbersome title for the better-but-not-quite-as-good-as-just-T4 for Terminator Salvation.
