New TERMINATOR SALVATION Footage removed!! But James Cameron Clarifies His Thoughts On The Film

Merrick here...
The embed below is courtesy of Trailer Addict (HERE). This interview with TERMINATOR SALVATION Production Designer Martin Laing shows us quite a bit of new stuff...both concept art & real footage. I'm not blown away yet, but my Suckometer isn't sounding off either...

Hey folks, Harry here - Got a call from the studios to remove the embed, as apparently it was not an official release and they're now going after poor Trailer Addict for releasing it. So sad to have some of the first genuine coolness regarding this project taken down. The film really could use more coolness out there. Anyway, I figured while I was doing this, I'd go ahead and share with you some comments from James Cameron regarding the new TERMINATOR film. Here's Jim's comments:

There's been some discussion at AICN and elsewhere of me rescinding my so-called blessing of T4 and that's not the case. The truth is there never was a blessing to rescind, and there's been some kind of misunderstanding between me and McG, perfectly innocent I believe. He asked me in a phone call when I was shooting in New Zealand earlier this year if I would be a supporter and creative participant in the new film. I said sure, send me the script and I'll give you my thoughts. And I warned him that free advice is usually worth what you pay for it. For whatever reason I never got the script and to date I haven't seen a foot of film other than what everybody's seen in the trailer, which is not enough to form an opinion. So I have zero basis for supporting or dissing the film. As I said in an interview, for all I know it could be a masterpiece or it could be a big steaming pile. I think all people heard was the steaming pile part and concluded I was against the film, which I'm not. In fact, it might be very good, an opinion based solely on what Sam Worthington has shared with me. He's nobody's fool when it comes to material, and has absolutely the lowest bullshit quotient of anyone I know, and he has repeatedly told me that he reckons the film is going to be good. I know him to be very critical (in a healthy way) of his own work, and an actor who always aspires to excellence, so I know he wouldn't praise the film if he didn't feel it. Obviously I can't give my blessing (whatever that means anyway ) to the film completely blind. But I'm predisposed to be supportive based on Sam's involvement and his judgment, because I believe in him. So there you have it. Let's all keep our fingers crossed that it's not a steaming pile. Jim out

Herc here. For the non-Aussies who do not yet register Sam Worthington as a household name, I thought I'd save you the trip I just took to IMDb. Worthington is a 32-year-old Australian actor who appears in both "Terminator Salvation" and Cameron's "Avatar."

    The delivery of the classic line...

    by Wolfman57

    ...kinda sucks. Almost patronizing tone. I don't know, it just didn't sound as iconic as it did in the first two.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:51 p.m. CST

    Looks nifty

    The more I see...

    by TylerDurden3395

    The more I like. The clunky looking prototype Terminators were the best thing about part 3 so to me, that T-600 looks pretty badass. Good to see a little bit of Bale in there. No matter if the flick is good, bad or ugly, I'm still there.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:53 p.m. CST

    He's quite the company man.

    by JumpinJehosaphat

    He offers no judgments on anything other than upbeat, all-inclusive statements about how wonderful everything is. It makes me a bit nervous, actually. I feel like I'm getting a hard sell.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:53 p.m. CST

    Terminator Motorbikes?

    by Nasty_Nick

    While I'm really liking everything else I am seeing in this the Terminator Motorbikes seem a bit pointlesss. Reminds me of Transformers in a bad way.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:54 p.m. CST

    We are spoiled

    by ltgalloway

    I feel we are being handed some amazing looking films lately. Maybe my personal taste has become dulled, but seems like in recent years we've had a ton of badass flicks come our way. There's still crap being made, dont get me wrong, but the standard has gone from great to mind blowing. Cant wait for what the future holds.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:54 p.m. CST

    I hate to say it....

    by Ray Gamma

    But this looks fucking brilliant.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:55 p.m. CST

    It looked OK

    by Monkey Butler

    Except for the line "we did all this research and testing...on the Internet". That doesn't fly for High School assignments, it shouldn't fly for a billion dollar franchise. It just makes it sound cheap and unprofessional. Which is exactly what they should be trying to prove that this movie (and McG) isn't.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:56 p.m. CST

    Im sure they kept the good stuff hidden at this point

    by Wheel99

    but I wasn't blown away.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:56 p.m. CST

    also

    by Ray Gamma

    I love the idea of the T600 being part of the 'set' of Terminators in this flick. It looks so primitive and yet so fucking huge and ridiculous, you would honestly poop yourself if one walked near you.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:56 p.m. CST

    It actually may not suck...

    by blackcoffee

    as much the straight to DVD look of the shitty 3rd film. I hate most of the second one but the first is one of my favourite films of all time. This looks a little too 'Bay' to me though.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 1:59 p.m. CST

    Listen to the jaded TalkBackers

    by Ray Gamma

    everyone trying as usual to say at best a grudging "yeah it looks okay" or "meh". How the fuck can you say a movie that looks like this is "meh"? </P> <P> If a movie that looks like this still makes you go "meh", then i suggest nothing short of downing a pint of LSD and then injecting yourself with angel dust and sticking your cock into an electricity substation is ever going to please you.

    Production Design..

    by Gigol-o Joe

    ..and Concept Art are usually under appreciated in Film these days. In this case - looks like they are on the right track. Good design will shape the environment and feeling of the final film. Good Example - Ralph McQuarrie/John Barry/Norman Reynolds - Star Wars Original Trilogy. Bad Example - Star Wars Prequel Trilogy (I can't be bothered to look up who worked on those pieces of shit).

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 2:01 p.m. CST

    agreed about production design

    by Ray Gamma

    they've nailed it i think

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 2:01 p.m. CST

    cant believe i didnt hate it

    by chokinonrhodes

    but i didnt. the bikes kind of looked lame, but some of the other models they showed were pretty good.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 2:03 p.m. CST

    Interesting...

    by Codename V

    This looks like something I could get into. Loved 1 & 2. Thought 3 was merely ok. Cautious optimism here...

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 2:05 p.m. CST

    It doesn't look awesome

    by SPECTRE007

    The flashes of the new Terminators didn't look original. Some looked like bugs, taken from the Matrix, and the bikes looked like a Transformers ripoff. But it's hard to talk about originality when we're discussing the 4th Terminator movie, which is being done by a bunch of guys who didn't make the original. I think I'm just over it.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 2:05 p.m. CST

    TERMINATOR 4...

    by 420 Boylston St

    Not for me! I can't endure another inferior product. From the bullshit teeny bopper terminator from the shitty tv series to this masturbation of Cameron's work inspired by material by Harlan Ellison. Bale may get asses in the seats but not for long after this thing is hauled in SUMMER 2009!

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 2:08 p.m. CST

    ...and the "researching on the internet"

    by Codename V

    True it doesn't work in high school. But that's because their research is usually wikipedia and that's it or they plagiarize the hell out someone's work. I gotta believe that this type of research on the internet may be a tad more legit than that since a lot of the terminator lore is electronic in nature... It's in the books and comics and stuff too but there are a lot of websites to use as a reference point from which to create background stories.

    Honestly

    by BilboRing

    This looks really good. I'm getting excitied but not cray yet. T3 was not that great. And the Alien franchise has been raped to death after Aliens. So I hope this is a revival of Terminator and not another step down.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 2:24 p.m. CST

    !

    by zom-bot.com

    the biggienator with the human face is actually pretty ominous! the rest of the new critters i could take or leave. i think the backdrops and landscapes are fucking AWESOME. i still just want to know what the machines goal is once all of humanity is wiped out. this almost has the feeling like it bridges terminator and the matrix- and that this is the era right after the machines take over, but before people are used as batteries...

    by codymr

    Yeah, I'm not sure what to think about the Terminator motorbikes either... <P> Although, overall I'd have to say this looks pretty good. When I heard that McG was helming this I tuned out. But based on the footage and the production art I've seen so far, I have to say I am cautiously optimistic. <P> I hope this will bring the franchise in line with Cameron-Terminator-Goodness.

    I am amazed no one commented on the harvester! Holy crap! That thing will scare the S#!$ out of me! For as rough as far off as we are from release, there was a surprising amount of polish in that video. I think McG *cough* might actually have done some good here...

    So the success of Transformers in no way influenced McG then

    by dastickboy

    I'm really hopeful of this film, but motorcycle and car terminators? What's the point when Hunter Killers and Terminators are already established in the mythology? Reckon the toy sales of this will be topping off the gross. Would have preferred McG to tell a story worth telling rather than sealing a licensing deal.

    It Took 'Em This Long...

    McGinty's gonna pull this off, BIGTIME

    by KillaKane

    Like what I've seen and heard so far, got a good feeling about this one. With Nolan and Bale's influence along with some Iron Jim mentoring, this could shape up to be the future War T-fans have been praying for. McGinty's a decent enough shooter (forget the MTV induced Angel fodder and check out 'Marshall')there's no denying his sense of visual flair, reigned in and focussed in the right direction Salvation could deliver the goods.

  • Nov. 7, 2008, 2:52 p.m. CST

    Wow they're really trying to win the geeks over...

    by TroutMaskReplicant

    Seems like they've taken some of the plotting from 28 Days Later (the sleeper awakes) and some of the action elements from Transformers. Still, with McG (it was all going so well till your man said "McG") at the helm who knows how it'll turn out?

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    as I keep hearing people say they're screwing with continuity. As such, I may just sit this out too, see what gels and what doesn't, and cherry pick what I feel best fills the series as a whole. I've pretty much done that with things like Robocop and Aliens, and been pretty happy about it.

    motorcycles

    by doubleARon

    They are fast and maneuverable. Sounds like a great way to chase down a human and drag them away, which is what they are for. Why all the skepticism on something so simple? I was glad to see them thinking outside the box. No idea how this movie will come off, but that seems a silly thing to nitpick.<p> Useful robots actually DON'T look like people most of the time.<p> Anywho, I hope it's great, but I expect something that is fun but hollow. Sort of wish the children here didn't help to de-ball the ending with their irrational response to the spoiler stuff early on. <p> Later, I guess, they will complain that it wasn't original enough. *sigh*

    by kwisatzhaderach

    The 'mototerminators' encapsulate everything that is wrong with this project. Jim Cameron had a vision and put everything on the line to tell it. McG is just another hack promo director, all flashy visuals and wacky camera angles but a completely empty storyteller. I guess teenagers and kids will be happy with this but anyone who grew up with the original 2 Terminator films really needs to save their money for Avatar instead.

    Mototerminators...

    by Darth Macchio

    ...doubtful they'd be used for 'dragging people away' but more for standard reconnaissance work and 'hit and run' attacks. Basically, if some metal-spidery appendages pop off the bike and scoop people up...it will be stupid (the physics alone begins to kill my cinematic suspension of disbelief). If they zip through an resistance encampment taking people out with pin-point accuracy phase-plasma rifles at 110mph, it could be 100% pure ass kickery.<p>I do like the 600's a lot ("The 600 series had rubber skin...we spotted them easily") and I really like the Harvesters. Basically all good designs but if they use them stupidly then it's for naught.<p>Directors dumbass name or not...I hope this stomps proverbial ass.

    by Amy Chasing

    Worthington is. But then I've always felt there are no celebrities in Australia. I don't mean that in a bad way (for the most part) but that it's like the celebrities here are so down-to-earth you could have a beer with one and not recognise them. That and being an actor here seems to give you as much celebrity as being part of the crew - ie. bugger all. Nah, you gotta go overseas and be a Hugh Jackman or Kylie Minogue (although even she's pushing it now) to be a proper famous Australian celebrity in Australia.

    Hybrids

    by Rommel Catuncan

    Sam Worthington's international recognition so far has been that Cameron hired him- a relative unknown- for the main role in 'Avatar'. So he's more of a "next big thing". His biggest film in Australia is probably 'Somersault' and he is known for the TV series 'Love My Way' as well. <P> Sam HUNTINGton was Jimmy Olsen in 'Superman Returns'.

  • But then I've only seen him in Australian movies, which tend to be terrible. That and Harts War, where someone else had to dub in his dialogue on account of his performance. I'm curious to see how he is in a film directed by someone with competence though, and am prepared to be pleasantly surprised by his work in Avatar. Cameron certainly fought hard to get to use him so that's encouraging. Check him out as the lead in the recent Aussie version of Macbeth though. He and it are unwatchable.

    Cameron's notes on the script

    by timmer33

    It makes sense why they never sent James Cameron the script. You just know that he would send back a crapload of notes. And that would put McG and Co. in a bad position. If they ignore the notes, it means really bad press. But to change things based on them would likely mean changing the entire film --- something they probably aren't prepared to do. Face it: we'll probably end up with a good action flick, but probably not something that feels like it belongs in the T1/T2 universe, or something that was created by Jim Cameron. Timmer33 out.

    Looked good...until: "Come with me if you wanna live." Christ, Jesus. Why? We get it. It's a new terminator movie. But some random dude doesn't need to say lines for a fucking elbow rib reaction shot. We get it already without that! It's just like "I've got a bad feeling about this" in Star Wars. Once 18 different people over the course of something like 70 years have said it, it just really becomes juvenile. Otherwise, I really like what I see here, but they need to cut that line and they need to stop calling this dude McG. It sounded even more rediculous having a grown man say it while talking about somebody. WTF!

Seriously McG? You said you'd send him the script then didn't? I would pay every cent in my bank account (which isn't much, I admit) for notes on one page of one of my scripts from James Cameron. And you have the chance to get notes from the CREATOR OF THE FRANCHISE OF THE MOVIE YOU'RE MAKING????? Who the fuck's wild idea was it to ignore that shit?? Very disappointing.

So I guess he's just hedging his bets. oh, dear, Jim, why did you have to get married to Linda Hamilton and lose the terminator rights in the subsequent divorce settlement? if not we would have seen a Cameron T3, and none of this subsequent crap. McG is indeed a fly on the mountain of dung that is the majority of modern genre filmmaking.

    The Sarah Connor Chronicles T600

    by Shan

    The T600 in The Sarah Connor Chronicles was much closer to the mark. The implication in the first Terminator film is that the T600 was a prototype attempt at an infiltration unit, so you'd think they were roughly the average size of a human being for starters.

    many things dumb

    by rememberface

    the first things which bothered me were from the teaser. That huge t-01 "hiding" underwater. How in the fuck is that 11 ft tall 10 ft wide robot submerged in waist deep water in a sewer...why does it wait to jump out at such an opportune time to "scare" everyone...musn't they have had to walk on top of it heading in that direction? Did its robot programming tell itself to go into a sewer and wait for humans...and hide? It's a fucking tank precticly. Rediculous. Terminator Motorcycles? wtf is this shit...dumbest idea ever. This isn't transformers you douche bag. 8 ft tall "infiltrator" bots with massive guns...oooh yeah very good for infiltrating unoticed...if you're gonna go all stupid with the original idea of the t-600 at least get proper sound design for the minigun! and if i see more then 1 crushed skull in this film i swear to god i'll infiltrate McG's office and punch him in his McChin.. come with me if you want to live. UGH!!! ACTION! - stare at the hydro bot (hydro for fuck sakes)...good keep staring...move closer....cloooser....and ACTIVATE BLADE MOUTH! BALE JUMP BACK! AH! resistance fighters stuggle!! imagine it waving around...more MORE!!! and then power it down...CUT! wonderful...you really sold me on your curiosity bale... sigh, very original. if its PG13 god help us all. I'll give props to the composition and general aesthetic of the limited footage we've seen...but have to hold that critique for when its in context really. Seems a tad unfinished too and inconsistent...specifically the truck and motorbike shots. but its probably in ILMs pipeline atm. Anywaysss....needs more cameron...can't believe he didn't read the script either. way to fuck up a goddam golden opp. end rant. pls prove me wrong McG by making it realistic and visceral...hopefully i'll care for the characters too...that would be nice.

    Zach Snyder can go FUCK HIMSELF :

    by PTSDPete

    http://www.darkhorizons.com/news08/081107k.php " A few online fanboys have been disappointed by reports from the test screening of the changed ending. Specifically a key moment in the graphic novel revolves around the disastrous repercussions of a 'giant alien squid' being teleported into New York City, an event that is changed in the movie (there's still a disaster but no squid). Snyder says "The fans, god love 'em, they're all up in arms about the squid. What they should be up in arms about are things like shooting the pregnant woman, 'God is real and he's American', whether THAT's in the movie. That's my point of view, maybe I'm crazy." He does admit that the ending scenes with the main characters remain, as does the 'moral imperative' of the comic's ending. What about talk he did some 'squid' stuff in pre-production? "Well... I don't want to say yes or no (laughs). The squid was not in the movie when I got the script, the squid was never in any draft that I saw. My point is only that there was this elegant solution to the squid problem that I kind of embraced. I'm a fan of the thing as much as anyone, I was saying what are we going to do about this before I even read the script." Was that solution multiple atomic explosions as some have said? "I won't say exactly but... Dr. Manhattan has a certain energy signature, it's clearly his thing...so you know." He also shot down reports of multiple endings - they only filmed the one. "

    Yeah the Watchmen ending is ruined

    ohh well. There goes the fanboy love for Zack Snyder, and the squid is a major thing. Putting the blame on Dr Manhattan doesn't really make sense. Doesn't have that idea that humanity would only unite against an external threat and no it isn't Dr Manhattan is suddenly a god now and not human.

    by Illuminate

    Let me get this straight, McG didn't send James Cameron. Either McG or Jonathan Nolan are on a high horse and think that they can make this film without the original creators input. The number one box office Director's opinion who's movie still kicked the shit out of the Dark Knight at the box office. It is still number 2 and it would not have made as much without the passing of the Great Heath Ledger. Even though Cameron was going to give his unpaid opinion it is still James Cameron and he would have given those jackasses more input and connection to things he didn't explain in the previous films to better connect part 4. Plus, Cameron never does anything half ass even if he is not getting paid. Let me put it another way, if I am a fucking painter and Micheal Angelo comes back to life and offers me advice on paint than I am going to fucking take it. What a bunch of dumb jackasses. First that bullshit pg-13 and now this. If this film fails they have no one to blame but themselves. Christian Bale has box office but, that will not guarantee that that film makes as much as T-2.

He's moved on and left it to the talentless circle jerkers to exploit his original work for all the coin they can get. If you read his quote he says he hasn't read the script. And just like everyone else, he has no idea if its going to be any good or not. I for one cannot fucking wait until Avatar hits. I've been waiting 11 years for new Cameron. Only one more to go! He's a legend. And for those who think he's an arrogant cock... thats what you get when you stick to your fucking guns and put your vision on the screen.

    The ONLY reason that Cameron has his "artistic vision" (seriously - has their ever been a more pretentious phrase - EVER?) is because his films all raked in a "bailout of AIG" level of bank.

    But to have an artistic vision, one has to be an actual artist in the first place. Vincent Gallo is a whiny puss. C'mon. Before complaining about *The Brown Bunny*, you should take into account that *Buffalo 66* or whatever that prior film of his was sucked too (no pun intended). The only artistic value that guy has is in his ability to con "investors" into giving him money to make his crappy films. Congrats to him because even Uwe Boll couldn't do that without German tax breaks. Then again, Uwe hasn't had Chloe What's-Her-Name blowing him on camera though. Although Boll is a fearless mofo with his cracking those Nazi gold jokes; obviously he doesn't care about offending the 10 people that will actually rent *Postal*.

    Me thinks some of you forget that the guy directing this has not made one single good movie. The Production design looks way too slick for a Terminator movie...too polished.

    The man gave us two incredible Terminator films and then he was done with it, unfortunately there was a third, which sucked (until Uncanny Antman's edit made it enjoyable and watchable at least.)
