New Batch of Concept Art from McG's Terminator Salvation
How about a bit of post-apocalyptic concept art to kick off your Easter Sunday? A fresh new batch of concept art from Terminator Salvation was discovered on the Sarah Connor Society blog (via SlashFilm) this weekend. The paintings were done by ILM artist Christian Alzmann and visual effects art director Warren Fu and look absolutely stunning, especially when viewed full-size. Given we've already seen plenty of imagery from McG's Terminator Salvation in the trailers that differs from most of this art, it's still pretty damn cool to get an idea of how it was all imagined in the first place. Check out this new art and enjoy!
Seen below: A post-apocalyptic version of San Francisco where SkyNet is located, two photos of the Hunter Killer aerial unit called a Transporter, a human interacting with a virtual SkyNet system of sorts, and a different version of the giant robot called The Harvester that we've seen in the trailers a few times before.
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.
