Check This Out: Awesome Terminator Salvation Concept Art!
There was a rather exciting leak of behind-the-scenes footage from Terminator Salvation recently, which we can't run or we'll be hunted down by Warner Brothers' lawyers. However, io9 has come to the rescue today and served up a helping of wonderful high resolution concept art photos from the upcoming film. As we (and the filmmakers) have mentioned before, the machines in Terminator Salvation have been reversed engineered in design from the previous films - since this takes place in a future that is before the future we've seen in any of the first three Terminator movies. Beyond that introduction, I'll let all of these badass images speak for themselves. You'll know what I mean when you see them - just take a look!
I've posted a few of my favorites below, but there are more concept art images that can be found on io9 - so just click any of the photos to head over there. Seeing these kinds of machines makes me so excited - we finally get to see what the gritty Terminator future is like and it doesn't seem like McG is holding back at all!
In the highly anticipated new installment of The Terminator film franchise, set in post-apocalyptic 2018, Christian Bale stars as John Connor, the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.
Terminator Salvation is directed by McG of Charlie's Angels and We Are Marshall with a script written by writing duo John D. Brancato and Michael Ferris (Into the Sun, The Net, The Game, Terminator 3). This film marks the return of the Terminator series after Terminator 3 last hit theaters in 2003. Terminator Salvation is set to land in theaters everywhere next summer on May 22nd, 2009. Stay tuned for more!
