Terminator Salvation's Explosive Full-Motion Poster Debut
by Alex Billington
November 25, 2008
The end begins. A full-motion poster (watch it - you'll see) for Terminator Salvation has been launched today online. Officially, it's a Flash poster that explodes and collapses and crumbles to form a Terminator face. It's actually pretty awesome, so I'd suggest you check it out. While I know there are a lot of theaters that have been installing digital poster systems, the numbers are quite dismal, which means only a lucky few with actually get to see this full size. The rest will have to deal with a small version online. Without further ado, do yourself a favor and take a look at the third poster revealed on this wonderful day.
Just click the poster below or visit this link to see it in action. Watch the city crumble before your eyes!
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!
Brilliantly conceived poster. I really hope this film isn't a disappointment. Even if it sucks, I at least get to watch Christian Bale kick some robot ass. And something that everyone forgets to mention- Paul Haggis (Million Dollar Baby, Crash, Casino Royale) and Shawn Ryan (TV's The Shield, TV's The Unit) both polished and re-wrote the script. I actually have faith in the story, I'm just worried that production will bastardize it all.

Now that's what I call creative...! All signals are telling me this should kick-ass...only the McG factor can make it suck anyway!

if arnie's in this, im assuming he is, why not use his face, ie like the first terminator kind of theme poster, (holding the gun) this is too confusing and too over board. ok cgi and so forth has developed but it doesnt mean use all its "tools". c'mon!!

Awesome! No lie, as soon as i woke up this morning i was thinking... How come there isn't any new news on the new Terminator thats coming out? Search and you will find.

Now, that's marketing! Hope this movie is going to be as good as it seems.

Now I would love to purchase and frame this poster...just hope the movie is nowhere near the crap direction of McG's previous garbage!

That's absolutely amazing. I love the concept. It would have been even more fascinating if that was an actual bit of LA, but hey. I'll take what I can get.

Looks like something out of a horror movie. Not that I'm complaining mind you. I can't wait to see this!

HHmmmm ...... Alex, I thought Terminator Salvation was a WB movie. I read last year that the suits in Wb were approached by Haclyon (now they own the Terminator rights.) to make this 4th movie. I'm lost. I know the 3rd movie was from Sony Pictures.

#9- Have you read a newspaper? Arnie is kind of busy being the Governator 🙂 I believe he talked a bit with the producers about using his likeness but nothing else as concrete.

Cheesy poster design.
avoidz on Nov 26, 2008
Neat, but not as good as the first one.
Ryan on Nov 27, 2008
wow! looks amazing!!!

The poster is sweet. Hopefully the director doesn't botch this installment as bad as T3, which absolutely sucked.
