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.

Anyone seen the new trailer that was aired on tv last friday-night right after the broadcast of the last episode of "Terminator - The Sarah Connor chronicles"? Is it available somewhere on the internet?

I like the 4th picture where he have an Atari 2600 hooked up to the wall possibly trying to hack it or something, nice homage to Terminator 2 where John Connor hacks that ATM with an Atari portfolio handheld.

Last one the best..the others rather boring.

I can't wait for this movie, I think it will be the best movie of the summer. The story will hit harder than any other, the action is going to be phenomenal, and the acting should be good and from what I've seen so far I think McG has really kicked his directing up a few notches. Really excited for this movie. To prepare everybody should watch T1 and T2 and also check out Equilibrium to see Christian Bale really rock the shit in what I consider, one of his best roles to date. Whether he's an abusive asshole that takes himself and his craft too serious, I still think Bale is the man and one of the best actors of this generation. Also, watching him and Depp go head to head in public enemies, (My second most anticipated film, starring my two fav actors) will be like watching the modern day Pacino/DeNiro face off. Hopefully it's as good as Heat.

Pipo, shut the fuck up. Until you're working on a movie of this caliber give respect where respect is due.

Too bad the film looks the complete opposite of this.

Thanks for all the info #10 but i think the pics are the general topic here. transporter looks like a bigger delorean from back to the future. harvester is well- ed 209 of course.
