McG talks T4 end

04.16.2009

This piece is in no way a spoiler, but I will be providing a quote from McG concerning the nature of the much-buzzed about ending to TERMINATOR SALVATION. Read on at your own peril.

After the original ending to the film leaked online and pissed fans off so much that the filmmakers rewrote it, there has been much discussion as to what the new ending may entail. Here's what McG had to say on the matter:

The ending is indeed elliptical, and it challenges the audience. Itís 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.

Wow. Who won't be happy with that answer? A cryptic and challenging ending that sets things up for the sequel is all we can ask for as fans. Now lets just cross our fingers and hope Terminator gets the girl!

Extra Tidbit: Who would you rather have date your sister: McG, Michael Bay or Brett Ratner?

i think on that note it needs to be said that i think the ending of the matrix reloaded was one of the best endings to a sequel/saga film. left us saying SHIT! and pining for the 3rd to find out what the hell goes down!

I dont know

how do yu write the endiong to your movie the way you want and thn change bc someone ruined it? More than likely whatever they thought up to replace the original ending, wont be as cool. Hope we can see it on DVD some day then.

Nolan did not write T4. There are several sources that have already confirmed Nolan's lack of involvement with this movie. McG said Nolan was the lead writer, yet Nolan gets no kind of credit at all? McG lied in a desperate attempt to win fans over, just like he lied about getting James Cameron to help with the story.

Wow . . .

You make some bold, epic statements based on a movie NO ONE HAS SEEN YET! Seriously, I am not going to defend or attack this film and McG, but all these overreactions are simply hyperbole. R makes a movie better? Sure. That argument can be used repeatedly, and I bet the same examples will be used. As one poster said, PG-13 movies are aloud to get away with a lot more lately. So, I repeat, those statements slimboguy made are really heavy for a film not yet released. Kill the franchise?

I actually will give McG some credit for recruiting Jonah Nolan, who I really respect as a writer. Unlike most of you, I'll wait and see how this turns out. No grand statements required.

to malaguy

you make absolutely no sense whatsoever. easily one of the least intelligent bloggers of all time. Die Hard 4 was nothing more than a jerry bruckheimer movie. DH2 drops a massive steamer on DH4 as far as action movies go. changing the rating is only good for the short term, it'll bring in millions of teenagers and cash, but it also means the studio hacked the shit out of it and it will make no sense and not feel like a terminator movie. no blades through people's mouths, no fingers through

jeez, some people....

where to begin? hmmmmm, well to whoever said that PG-13 movies are shitty, specifically Die Hard 4 - you are a retard. Die Hard 4 was pretty good actually, FAR better than part 2, which means with 1,3 & 4, we actually have a Die Hard trilogy worth a shit.

and to "cinematographer" - lighten the fuck up man. "Bifurcates" is the most appropriate word for what he was trying to say. Maybe you are the one who needs to go back to English 101, because "that shit DOES make sense," (to paraphrase

And for the record, I was not a fan of the choice of McG for director, but I've at least given him a chance to prove himself, which seems like a tall order for some of you....

Oh wait yeah...he's saying half of us are going to hate his shitty movie and half of us might kind of think it was ok? Someone cap this fool from the grassy knoll already.

this is gonna suck

its pg13. yes i know the dark knight was pg13, but thats where batman movies are comfortable.

Die hard 4, Speed 2, Robocop 3, AVP - All pg13, all kid friendly, all sucked, all killed their franchises.

We already have a pg13 robot movie that we can see with kids this summer, its called transformers. you wanna see a terminator thats not R? stay at home and watch the shitty sarah connor chronicles.

Dunno you guys have been but Cameron had NOTHING to do with Terminator 3 either. That movie was TERRIBLE. They got the mythology wrong and it was just a pure popcorn flick that made me NOT want to eat popcorn b/c it was so awful.

So what, McG did Charlies Angels crap? Just because he did those doesnt mean hes a bad director and shouldnt be able to try other projects. Should he have done a different film first? Probably, yeah, to show hes a competent film maker.

But if you REALLY think

But if you REALLY think this is gonna suck because its PG-13 then ur just retarded. PG-13 has become a VERY flexible rating, just watch The Dark Knight or Die Hard 4....violent as hell w/out R... so chill the fuck out

McG was not the right choice to direct this movie.

PG-13 = No Terminator film. Just a popcorn flick and a bad one at that.

I'm pretty bummed it's PG-13. We finally see the Humans vs. Machines war and it's trimmed? bleh.

Furthermore, I won't hate on the guy, but he better deliver on this ending he speaks of. Otherwise he's going to get really fried up by the net community and mainstream press.

Really! OMG

Wait... This is coming from the guy who made the Charlie's Angels movies? Haha... And Cameron had nothing to do with it? The only quality this movie had was the one man who nearly walked off the set because he hated working there.

McG apologizers, never thought I'd see the day. Guess that goes to show the star power of Bale. Bale should star in an Uwe Boll movie, I would love to see some Boll apologizers, that would be hilarious.
Bale = Twilight for internet fan boys.

SEE FOX... IF the director himself is setting the movie up for a SEQUEL... then WHY would you even contemplate cancelling Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chonicles this early(especially after one great finale)...

Original Ending??

"So does that mean John Connor won't be killed, and his skin put over Marcus Wright's terminator?"

I'm a little out of the loop with this one, but was this the planned original ending to T4?

if so.... GAY!!!!!!

McG does seem to be very full of himself. Let the audience decide if the ending is smart and challenging, don't tell us it is. Even Ratner has the decency to not speak so egotistically about his own work.

Muta - PG-13 also does not equal a Terminator movie.

James Cameron should pay me to kill McG.

So does that mean John Connor won't be killed, and his skin put over Marcus Wright's terminator?

Good thing, because that was the stupidest ending I've ever had the displeasure of hearing.

Since this film is rated PG-13, I think it's a no-brainer this film will suck balls. BIG balls. McGiant Balls.
