Empire's Badass New Terminator Salvation Cover Shot
Our friends over at Empire have posted a small sneak peek at their latest issue, which includes a brand new cover shot from Terminator Salvation. They claim there are a few more new photos inside the magazine, but alas, we've got to wait until a hard copy shows up in our mailbox. Additionally, since there's not much else too exciting to feature today, I thought I'd at least put up this cover shot, since it is pretty badass. Stay tuned for more on Terminator Salvation this weekend coming from WonderCon in San Francisco.
After Skynet has destroyed much of humanity in a nuclear holocaust, a group of survivors led by John Connor (Christian Bale) struggle to keep the machines from finishing the job that they began.
Terminator Salvation is directed by McG, of both Charlie's Angels movies and also We Are Marshall previously. The script was written by writing duo John D. Brancato and Michael Ferris, of Into the Sun, The Net, The Game, and Terminator 3 previously. Additionally, Christopher Nolan's brother Jonah Nolan helped rewrite the script before shooting. This marks the awaited return of the Terminator franchise after Terminator 3 hit in 2003. Terminator Salvation arrives in theaters on May 21st this summer.

Cool pic. However, Alex, you seem so fascinated with all things Christian Bale. Like last years TDK you could not stop raving and mentioned time and time again how great it was. We all knew that. So I guess it's time to suck up to T-4 now!

$100 says that Bale had a ten minute temper-tantrum about that robot hand being in his shot.

Its cool how they used that sepia effect to keep the flesh-tone of our hero. Yet keep the stark black'n'white colour to the bot

... I've got to be the only one who thinks this looks bad don't I... personally I think its a little over photoshopped... and for a second there, I thought Christian Bale was Ralph Fiennes... to each their own though right? I still can't wait for this movie... ...

I have to agree with #10.

Have to agree w/ Monday Jay about the overly Photo-shopped look. It certainly does look like a high-quality video game monthly mag cover, but I still can understand an actor of Bale's calibre being frustrated by a production that seems to know so little about the basics of film, cinematography, and (most likely) acting/casting. The robots look kinda cool, though, and as always, so does Christian Bale.

Nice cover... though... am I the only one that (still) cringes when seeing "Terminator: Salvation" and "McG", usually followed quickly by a "Charlie's Angels" mention? Then again... how hard can it be to F*#K UP a Terminator with Bale in the lead right? RIGHT?!
