Exclusive: Two Brand New Photos from Terminator Salvation

Screw you Star Trek, bring on Terminator! Warner Brothers has sent over two exclusive new photos from Terminator Salvation, which hits theaters in just a few more weeks. We're one of a few sites debuting new photos today, so be sure to check out all of them. The first photo below shows Sam Worthington as Marcus Wright standing in front of a recognizable Los Angeles landmark. The second photo below shows Christian Bale as John Connor talking with another Resistance leader. I actually just saw Terminator Salvation recently, and while I'm not allowed to say much, I will say it easily surpassed my expectations.
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 back in 2003. Terminator Salvation arrives in theaters on May 21st this summer.

Alex, I know you can't say much, but can you give us an idea of what the running time turned out being? Just a ballpark if you aren't sure, is it the 2 hours 10 minutes McG first stated it'd be, or longer or like a 90 minute film? Because i've heard rumors that it is much shorter than once stated. Also, you "loved" Star Trek but Terminator makes you say "screw you Star Trek"? Very interesting. Thanks

I am so excited for this. This, Moon, and District 9 are all tied at number one for me
Dan W on May 8, 2009
The running time is 115 min

This is gonna be my favourite movie of 2009's. I'm really exited to watch it, cant wait.

Well it seems that since Batman Begins, whatever Bale touches turns to gold. We'll see if he can carry this legacy with TS.

Well Alex, I can imagine watching that would definately make your day. The rest of us are waiting to have that experience. Can't wait now.

I think that it sucks that here in Australia that we have to wait until June 4th to see this film. I don't know why the studio thought that holding it back from us would do them any good as I am sure it will be downloaded by a lot of people here before it's release.

Plus Star Trek was released here 2 days earlier than the U.S. and apparently Transformers will be 2 days earlier as well, so it makes sense as to why T.S. would be released 2 weeks later here.

Looks like cutscenes from a red alert game.
Ryderup on May 9, 2009
Yap, u're right, it's just like red alert, but in compensation i expect the movie to be awesome!!!

I've been reading 'The making of Terminator Salvation' book, and if the images are anything to go by this movie is gonna rock. The T600 models look totally awesome. As it says in the book, they are models with their own huge powerpacks that are sent out to roam the battlefields nonstop for years with one prime directive - to annilate humans. They'm built like Tiger tanks compared to the T800 Panzer.

4min trailer was really good, best so far
David Banner on May 9, 2009
Wait, what? It's being held from Aus till June 4th? Damn.

I loved Christian Bale ever since I first saw American Psycho. He's such a BAMF! Whatever movie he does, whatever role he plays, he's always amazing. Even if he gets sometimes played against the wall, like in TDK. (Ledger clearly surpassed him there with his Joker performance, imo.) But he always gives everything for his role. I am so excited for Terminator, it's gonna be effing sweet! Who cares that Bale blew up on set and went berserk on some guy? Nothing sexier than a hot guy saying "fuck" a lot. =P

Good movie but I can't stand that real-life female bully Christian Bale!!!

Terminator: Salvation: It has enough pace and excitement to keep action fans switched on, This is Sam Worthington's movie, and he steals it, decent action film, far superior to the awful Terminator 3. Despite some laughably silly plot elements, McG has created an overall entertaining movie experience. Being a rabid fan that grew up on the franchise created by James Cameron, the idea of McG getting behind the camera for this sequel was slightly nauseating, and yet, by some miracle, the fourth film in the franchise is (barely) passable.
