McG updates T4

10.23.2008

After keeping relatively quiet since Comic-Con, McG is back talking about TERMINATOR SALVATION and has updated the official site with some thoughts now that he's knee-deep in post-production. McG reveals that he's shown stars Christian Bale and Sam Worthington an early cut of the film and that they "seem pleased" with what they saw. They weren't super excited but they did "seem pleased"...

As far as the Terminator FX go, McG reveals, "There's one sequence in particular where we're trying to achieve something that's never been done before. I don't want to talk about it because we haven't been successful yet..." Hey at least he's honest people! (Except for the point where he said he had James Cameron's' blessing when he clearly did not.)

McG rambles on a little bit about VFX supervisor Charlie Gibson (I don't think that's the same guy that hosts "Good Morning America") and editor Conrad Buff before ending with: "This is a story of two destinies colliding. Connor is part of a resistance comprised of the ethnicities that make up the globe. This film is so much more that just Los Angeles. It reflects the global crisis of man, all of man versus machine.

Still don't know why people hate McG so much. The general argument against him seems to be CHARLIE'S ANGELS WUZ GAY AN' SO'S HIS NAME. Anybody remember what Cameron did before Aliens and Terminator? He directed Pirahna II, that's what he did. And that movie sucks balls. So just see what the guy does with this movie before flipping out, and be thankful that he's at least trying to keep people updated via a blog (especially when the people he's keeping updated talk massive amounts of shit).

Please.

I think this movie is gonna suck big time. It's not gonna be the same to not have Arnold in it as the Terminator. And McG, gimme a break. So are you gonna have Conner going around like Charlie Angels kicking butt. And you know you didn't have Camerons blessing at all. They should have been done with it at Judgment Day, but noooo...gotta make more money. Good luck with this one.

I was thinking the same thing. Ari would FREAK out.

Plus, when they said they were "pleased", I think that is like saying, "Your movie looks like crap right now but we arent gonna tell you until we see final cut." So that kind of made me a little depressed.

I feel like the same thing is gonna happen for this as it did for Indy 4. Its gonna be mediocre, but it is still gonna be cool because its a new Terminator movie.

McG hypes the obvious stuff we would expect. The kind of stuff that should be taken for granted is being treated as really special by this guy. This gives me a bad feeling, because it kinda implies there won't be much that actually IS special. I'm still holding on to hope that this will resemble a shadow of T1 and T2.

if this were from any other director minus ratner...

I'd be more into it...anyone else, i'd give more of a chance to except brett ratner...

i even hate it when "McG" flashes on the opening credits...it's embarrassing...and i think it looks like shit...credits role DIRECTED BY: McG on the friggin' terminator which was revolutionary and now just seems hyper dumb droll, visual flare.

which the originals had, but they also had that special certain magic...3 and this one will not, McG is not capable of bringing what the first 2 offered. he'll

McG is not the man to tighten them up.

This film is so much more that just Los Angeles. It reflects the global crisis of man, all of man versus machine.

- Hopefully this means we won't see Connor in the future war posing with a US flag like in T3.

i can't wait

I'm very excited for this film, thew teaser was awesome. the cast is great, and I'm not judging this until i see it. McG has only nade 2 films and they were both from the same..um.."franchise" and he's done nothing for 5 years. I don't think WB would just hand this franchise over to someone without having absolute faith in them.

Hahahahahaha....

Could you imagine if Ari Gold represented McG?

The moment McG said that Bale "seemed pleased" with the movie, Ari would be scrambling through the agency hallways as he tries to find Lloyd and beat McG over the head for saying something so stupid.

You don't advertise a big-budget Hollywood movie by saying that people "seemed pleased" with it.

Once I realized all the bullshit spewing out of McG's mouth, I lost what little hope I had for this film.

hmmmm

I still don't trust this guy. Although the last trailer looked pretty neat, I'm still holding off until I see more.
