Introducing Mr. Connor

02.25.2009

Now that we're all over the whole Christian Bale fiasco, let's get back to the important shit. TERMINATOR SALVATION is only a few months away, and we're all waiting with bated breath. Along with WATCHMEN, this is the movie that we're all collectively thinking "Please don't mess this up. Please." Well based on what I've seen so far from McG's highly anticipated film, the guy is hitting all the right notes. The robots are threatening, the babes are sizzling, and Bale as John Connor is an absolute badass. If you don't believe me, check out the pic below.

Will Smith is the biggest star in the world.

this isn't even debatable.

I think people underestimate his drawing power. If he isn't the biggest star, he's definitely up there.

Syange- Where are the non franchise movies??

Really?

The Machinest, American Psycho, The Prestige, Harsh Times, Rescue Dawn,I'm Not There, 3:10 to Yuma, The New World.

All of these are as of right now, Non Franchise, standalone movies and ALL of them are amazing movies with amazing acting by Mr. Bale. You cannot deny his acting chops in ANY of these roles...

Do I think he's the biggest movie star in the world? No. Is he one of the best? YES.

By the way, Batman, Shaft and

By the way, Batman, Shaft and terminator are the ONLY franchises Bale has been in and I wouldnt even call Shaft a franchise as the originals were out before Bale was even in Hollywood.

Bale isn't the biggest star, but he is certainly one of the best. All his roles in the last few films he was in really impressed me.

I'm hoping the movie is done right, but really, I just want to punch McG in the face. Not because he's a bad director, but because he insists that people call him McG. Who looked at the resume with "McG" written on it and said, "Oh we gotta get this guy!"

Bale is my absolute favorite actor, has been for the past couple years, and I'm pretty convinced that eventually he will be one of the biggest box office draws in the world, however he's not there yet.

If you're talking about world-wide appeal there's probably half a doezen that are bigger then him right now inluding: Will Smith, Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Russel Crowe, and maybe a couple of others. Those guys can each open a movie in almost any country

The fact that I don't like it doesn't change that it's true.

Newsies Fa-evah!!!

Bale is an amazing actor. The biggest star in the world? Well that's subjective. On this page alone I've seen Will Smith, Johnny Depp, and Christopher Walken all mentioned as the biggest star in the world and I don't agree with any of them. Of everyone mentioned I think Bale is the best actor, but not the biggest star. But he was doing great movies long before the Batman series and he'll be doing them long after. He changes for every role, something you don't see from the majority of actors

To all the Bale haters open your eyes. He can lead a movie, any movie, as long as the material is worth a shit. And as we can all see, he makes damned good choices when it comes to choosing roles.

Biggest star? Neh. I would say Johnny Depp or in my opinion probably Christopher Walken [but that's because Walken is the man]. And even though I would rather not like to, I do agree about Will Smith.

Blutunehead has a good point. I was just gonna mention the new Dillinger movie, I had forgotten Bale was even in that till I saw him in the trailer that played after the Oscars.

biggest star? no. batman's success wasn't because of bale's star power. not to say that he didn't help. the movie was a big hit thanks to all parties involved. certainly the fact that he was in it as opposed to freddie prinze jr helped, but bale hasn't yet proved that he can open a movie just by name alone the way somebody like will smith can. he has become a big star, for sure, but he isn't the biggest by any means.

and public enemies is likely going to be seen as johnny depp's movie

DON'T MAKE ME LAUGH!

Bale can't open a movie in his own. Where are the non-franchise movies? Where are the no-famous sequel/prequel of a big movie? Put him in a small movie, or in a romance, or drama and see what happens. Nobody cares.

Nope, Will Smith is the biggest movie star in the world. And rightly so.

Awesome

The covers is just awesome.. simply awesome.

I have been waiting for Christian Bale to return to his American [link] kind of flavour, and now he does. I am not saying that he wasnt in Batman Begins and TDK (and I totally love both of them), but it was The Goddamn Batman there and not much of the bad-ass Bale. And now, specially after the whole on-set incident and listening to how much the level of badassness Bale could come up with, Im all pumped up for this.
Now, all we need from Bale is

Now, all we need from Bale is him to do a hard/black comedy portraying a character part his own terminator on-the-set Bale version and part Les Grossman version... lol

And as for the extra tidbit: Christian Bale IS the biggest actor/movie star in the world at the moment. My reason for it - He just gave a 1-billion dollar movie dressed up as a bat :)

Maybe not the 'biggest star'

but arguably the best H'wood leading man right now. And with Public Enemies and T4 out in a few months he might get even hotter. I'm confident in Michael mann, not sold on McG. Yet. He might be "hitting the right notes" in his Comic Con panels but so was Jon Favreau before I realised he was just over-selling a subpar action comedy.

And from what I've read recently from an interview with Common, his character in T4 is the one who "cracks jokes in the middle of fighting armies of Terminators",

Do we *really* need comedic foils in every blockbuster?

If Mr Bale is as bad ass as he was in that audio file, you know... the one that everyone has forgotten about, then this movie will be one hell of a ride.
I know i'm jumping the gun here but when they release the Dvd of Salvation, wouldn't it be cool to have a hidden easter egg of that whole fiasco...... You know...the one that everyone has forgotten about.
Oh yeah and before I go, one last thing... You know that fiasco with Bale, you know the one that everyone has forgotten about,

Christian Bale was the best Batman hands down, Lets hope he Rocks as Mr Connor.

Extra Tidbit........ Yes... Followed closely by the Late John Candy... RIP.

I'm not sure how I feel about "sizzling babes" in a Terminator movie. Granted we saw boobage in the first film but it wasn't a grab at making it a sexy film. And the second film is hardly any of that...

Oh, so this is a Gears of War movie?

The more I see the less I like, and I wasn't too thrilled from the beginning.

yessir

right now, Bale is undoubtedly the biggest star there is, and rightly so. The guy rocks the fuck out of every role he is given.
