McG preps T5

08.10.2009

Terminator Final Chapter

Before the release of TERMINATOR: SALVATION, the prospect of an already-planned 5th installment had lots of fans excited. Now that everybody has witnessed McG’s vision of the future... Well at least McG’s excited, telling the folks of IESB he’s already “cooking” up the next chapter in the Connor saga. Good thing? Bad thing?

"It's terribly exciting to get back out there and show a different face of that idea, and perhaps get out of the apocalyptic world and into a contemporary world,” he claimed, terribly being the keyword. "I think the audience is going to be very excited about our way in." Gut feeling he'll need to be a little more convincing that that...

Until McG gets to play with Cameron’s creation once again, the man is getting ready to launch HUMAN TARGET on Fox with Rorschach himself Jackie Earl Haley, and prepping the still-starless 20,000 LEAGUES origin story. Will a year or two help make SALVATION look better in retrospect?

Extra Tidbit: On making Salvation, McG claimed that he wanted to honor "golden age" sci-fi movies like ALIEN and BLADE RUNNER. I'm curious to know if Ridley Scott feels honored...

T4 was really good in my opinion, though not as good as the first 2 but a way better than the 3rd. i hope that McG makes this movie all about john because T4 was too much about marcus wright

great news...

i dont know about the rest of you, but i was really pleased with TS. i thought the movie rocked with tons of action and explosions and cool looking terminators, etc...i cant wait for the blu-ray to add to my collection, and roll on the next one with McG...the film was a perfect summer popcorn flick.

You'll end up seeing Robert Patrick in this, and it'll be set back on the clock to "our time".

McG did it fine

I'm looking forward to a second movie. Hope they say goodbye to Danny Elfman, and bring a composer that has respect for the original theme. McG cleaned his name on this one, and surely can improve even more if given the chance.

what the fuck is so hard about making a movie about the future war? you know, having laser guns and armies of terminators. its not that hard hollywood, james cameron already showed you what you gotta do in flashback scenes from the first 2

phenomenal?

How can anyone with half a brain like T4? It was basic garbage film-making at its best. Stock characters, bad storytelling. The worst ending I think I've seen to any film ever.
Also, to say that people who don't like it don't understand or don't like the 1st two is, actually, the VERY OPPOSITE of any sort of truth.

I hope he makes a new one and none of us go to see it. Then maybe he'll go back to directing 4 minute music videos instead of 2 hour ones.

eh

I can't belive someone let a man named McG direct a Terminator movie. His named alone exploded with douchbaginess. Charlie's Angels sucked. And T4 sucked harder. Fuck McG in the ear.

T:S = not great..

I don't see that the Terminator franchise needs to continue. They've pretty much told the story. Most of the resistance characters were redundant and 2-dimnensional, including Connor himself. It had moments of good action but that was about it.

They've tried the show, and a 3rd sequel. How about letting Terminator be done for awhile? How about pursuing a new fucking idea for a movie franchise instead of constantly digging up the bones of old ones?

Terminator Salvation was phenomenal and did the first two justice. Those who bash the film have obviously either 1. Never seen the first two or 2. are incapable of understanding them, because anyone who has really seen and understood the first two should be able to see how beautifully this one ties in. I'm beyond excited for the fifth one.

really

is mcg crazy? terminator salvation is the worst movie of the year and many other years that had some pretty bad movies, as for chalking it up, i don't think we have to... everyone's excuse for terminator is that it wasn't that bad and when is that a valid excuse??? And by the way i didn't really see the terminators killing things in salvation, i saw them throwing things around for some reason, i saw two of them patrolling their base, i saw them bring up a bond villain computer face for marcus,

They killed the franchise so good job JoBlo, i agree completely. Fire McG and let's give John Connor a rest, he seemed tired

really? of course..., simple minds..., simple pleasures

the article pic pretty much sums up the whole T5 experience. especially in comparison to the first 3 and quality genre filmmaking as a whole.

chalk it up

i liked salvation, no T2 but honestly what has been worth anything lately if compared to older movies. Things have grown stale and bland, and we are not shocked by things anymore...but terminators killing things are always cool (minus T3) and i wouldnt mind watching more metal carnage on the bigscreen!!

Salvation was alright, but unnecessary. There was no need for any Terminator movies after Judgment Day.

Thanks for your opinion no-one asked for, JoBlo.

This movie will rock, like Salvation did.

I've seen this happen before, Critics and Audiences playing a giant game of chinese whispers, one person says its bad, then everyone jumps on the bandwagon, i think this is a case of everyone being wrong, T:S was great.

Really the 80's were the golden age of sci-fi films?

Don't get me wrong, some of the best science fiction films ever made came out in the 80's, but if that was the golden age then what does that make Forbidden Planet and The Day The Earth Stood Still?

Also, I'm having a really tough time believing that McG is going to be able to get people excited for a sequel. I mean we already had his work cut out for him this time, convinving most of the fans to give him a second chance is going to be next to impossible.

Didn't they already do the contemporary thing with the first three Terminators? I thought the whole point of this new trilogy was to give us the badass apocalyptic war between the humans and the machines. Then, can't expect much after Salvation. It's a shame Cameron has no control over his creation.

T4 was under-par as Terminator movie, but decent as an actual movie. i mean ill probably still see the next one, but if its worse than Salvation then....well shit.

Terminator Salvation was really a mixed bag, but I don't think it was McG's fault. The action sequences were incredibly well shot and, unlike Transformers 2, you could actually understand what was going on on screen. The screenwriters of T3 and Catwoman were to blame. Focus on this Marcus character and not John Connor? Wow, I want whatever they're smoking. I think McG (as much as I hate typing that name) has room for improvement.

Regarding the tidbit

Terminator Salvation was a good movie but in no way was it even close to being half as good as "Alien" and "Blade Runner". McG needs to make the next terminator movie epic and if not then the studio should just "terminate" this franchise altogether.

You're aware Hollywood never really terminates a franchise, right? A director, maybe.
