Hey folks, Harry here with something pretty nifty - it's the new poster for TERMINATOR SALVATION, but as this fun motion & music & sound effect thing. Don't you think this means it'll be the greatest thing ever?

    "The End Begins" needs to fucking die and die quickly

    by Liberty Valance

    It was used as the tagline for God of War II and more recently for Tom Clancy's EndWar ("Let the end begin"). I realize creativity is dead in Hollywood but "The end begins" and every variation thereof isn't witty, clever or inventive. I ususally don't get pissed off at trivial shit like this but for fuck's sake I'm sick of that slogan.

    re: Animated posters in digital frames

    by Flummage

    At worst, I can imagine that seeming incredibly tacky. A derivation of the kind of thing Quint would discretely click over whilst compiling the holiday gift guide, but made to a suitably luxurious standard, a high definition digital image, a purty frame n' some twinkly lights, that could be something interesting. Hardly a revolution, or something to engender the "death of an art form", not for some time anyway, but an interesting thing to have as part of the movie 21st century theatre experience. <p> Before seeing the latest movie posters became a staple diet of my interwubs browsing, I always used to enjoy seeing upcoming films upon the walls of my local flick house. I remember seeing the Truman Show poster for example, and being somewhat beguiled by it before I know much of the film itself.<p> If it comes to be, I would imagine perhaps it just another thing to be distracted by, if nothing else, and help fuel the pre-movie buzz of anticipation and cautious excitement before stepping through to the experience proper.<p> I don't quite believe in the idea that no interesting poster art anymore, there are (and always will be) the artists to do so, I would say, whether it would be fully explored by studio marketing departments, is another question, I suppose.<p> Anyhows, considering the way things have gone in recent times (the campaign for The Dark Knight springs to mind), such things don't seem quite so unlikely anymore.<p>Fun to think about.

    These movies have no ending right?

    by Orionsangels

    The new series of terminator movies deal with the nuclear war and man vs the machines. it eventually leads up to the machines sending the terminator to 1984 and the humans sending kyle reese to defend sarah conner. it comes full circle. it's a time causality loop. unless they change history.

    So? 3 & 4 still crap all over the originals

    by Larry of Arabia

    Cameron's theme was that you control your destiny, not fate. Then the new directors go back and decide, no, no it's fate after all and nothing you do will stop it. Fuck you all for shitting on the originals. Am I the only one that thinks this?

  • Nov. 25, 2008, 8:52 p.m. CST

    by TheWaqman really is! Finally this Robot wankfest will fucking end soon. Do you guys realize both Transformers 2 AND Terminator 4 (aka, minus Cameron and Arnie, plus Mcleprechaun and shitty film) are coming out in the summer of 09? That's sounding like shit already. I'll see this in theatres due to curiosity, but no chance in hell will I make the mistake of watching Transformers 2.

    re: Animated posters in digital frames

    by MattInTheHat

    They are already here. I went to see Mr Bond in the weekend and thery had a LCD panel displayed portrait with an animated poster for some chick flick like The Women. As I recall it was laid out exactly like a normal poster with title at the bottom and cinema fine print, but with a couple of the actors doing something on it like acting a bit goofy in a friends-ish opening sequence type manner (not a scene preview or trailer etc).

    Obviously, the concept of time travel has never been touched on in the Terminator movies. Why don't they just keep going back to the first movie and kill Sarah Connor? Why was there a T-2? Just remake the first one over and over!

    Destroying the time machine.

    by Shan

    We learn in T1 that John Connor wouldn't have been born if the time machine hadn't been built as his father came from the future back to 1984. In T2, we learn Skynet wouldn't have been built without the technology from the future - hence creating another onotological paradox. <p> However, it would make sense to destroy the machine before anything got sent back. In theory, John wouldn't be born but then neither would Skynet come into existence. <p> Mind you, the time stream is so confused and polluted, nothing is certain about that and probably it wouldn't work now, with so many people going back in time, it's a real mess.

  • Nov. 25, 2008, 11:58 p.m. CST

    Skynet is real.

    by Shan

    FYI, Skynet is real. It's part of a UK military satellite communications system that's still running to this day. The first one was launched in 1969 and more have been launched since. <p> True story.

    T3 and these Prequels are the only way the timeline works

    by bullet3

    The "fate is what we make it" doesn't make any sense in the second one, because if the machines never existed, then they could never have come back in the first-place (and john conner wouldn't have been born either). T3 fixes this problem so that the war still happens, and I'm hoping the prequels will keep the timeline working properly, so by the end of the first movie the machines should send back the T-100, then by the end of the second send back the t-1000, then by the end of the last one as a desperate attempt send back the t-x. Thus, the timelines will make sense again.

    Nice poster, but...

    by yiannis

    ... I find it very difficult to get seriously excited about this movie.<br><br>Sure, it's got Terminators and Terminators are always cool. Sure, it's gonna show all the cool future war stuff that (let's be honest) they never had the budget OR technology to do properly (even T2 - with SFX as they were at the time you would have had to spend $300 million to achieve what you can now with CGI). Sure, it's got a quality actor in the lead role - ANY leading role - for arguably the first time in the franchise. It's got all that, but I still feel pretty "meh" about it.<br><br>Part of this is obviously the awfulness of T3. I am STILL trying to work out how I actually OWN a genuine, paid-for copy of this film. I'm pretty sure it was on special offer, but that doesn't excuse it. My only mitigation is that I was smoking a HELL of a lot of dope around the time I bought it...<br><br>I really don't get why people are freaking out over the timeline continuity, though. I mean, it's not as though Cameron tried to make a serious, scientific treatise on the theoretical implications of time travel. He made a low budget, kick-ass sci-fi/horror film that IN NO WAY needed sequels. T2 may possibly be the greatest action film ever made (for me it's Die Hard, but the vote would be close), but that doesn't erase the fact that it is a sequel to a movie that didn't need sequelising. In that movie, Cameron himself created the most impossible of all paradoxes (that the machines can only ever be created by a machine coming back in time), so compared to that what does it matter if the date of a certain event changes?

    As people have chipped in with the odd Avatar comment here already, I thought I'd just say this:<br><br>Has anyone else seen the concept art for the Na'vi or whatever they're called? Think it's on but not sure...<br><br>If so, am I the only one a little underwhelmed by it?<br><br>Ok, it might not be genuine for a start and in any case I'm CERTAINLY reserving judgement until I've seen some proper footage fully animated, but it just seems to me to look like a tall, thin, blue-skinned HUMAN with funky hair!<br><br>I accept that they are going to need vaguely human facial features and be essentially humanoid in build, but I can't help but feel a little disappointed that these aliens don't look more, well, ALIEN...

    The best time travel story

    by Fawst

    was Trunks from Dragonball Z. Fuck you for laughing. Oddly enough, it was a Terminator ripoff of sorts. Trunks grows up in a future where Goku has died of a rare disease. Two androids were created that are destroying everything, and only Goku could stop them. After his death, a cure was made for the disease. Trunks travels into the past, gives Goku the cure, he lives, and he's able to save the world from the androids.<br><br>So why is that the best time travel story? Because Trunks can't go into his own happy future. He created an alternate timeline in which none of what happened in his reality happened. He can only return to his own time, where events played out as they did. But Goku and co. keep on trucking through their happy existence, where Goku didn't die.<br><br>The point is this: the story doesn't have to loop backwards. Let's see what happened after Kyle was sent back in time (though we already know, it doesn't change anything).

    'real' moving poster

    by unami

    as some people here are discussing this, here's the text from the press release: "Closer to the launch of the film, the motion poster will be visible on billboards in selected cities worldwide." and "Motion posters are the latest in poster marketing technology in which a poster scene morphs into another image, as seen in the recent marketing campaign for SPE’s “Quantum of Solace.” meaning: yes, it's moving. somehow.

    I advice everyone to stay away from time travel plots, but in the end it just fucks everything up. I expect that this will end with someone going back in time to fix everything...

    How TERMINATOR should end

    by ducKy72

    The best way to end Terminator would be to reveal that there IS no John Connor- or rather that there are several. 'John Connor' is just the generic name given to the various leaders of the resistance. The John Connor of the first 2 films is merely a nobody, someone to distract Skynet.

    Monster House Lenticular 3-D poster

    by Jaws Wayne

    Anybody else around who has it ? Easily my greatest film-related item I've ever won on eBay. For only 10 GBP ! (Never mind the high postage costs that came with it). It has about 8 stages, if you walk past it the house morphs into the monster, reaching out to the little boy hero, it's like a full second of motion. It's glorious.

    Hell Yeah Fawst, motherfuckin Future Trunks from DBZ!

    by turketron

    I remember when Trunks returned to his crappy future, he was stronger and able to kick the shit out of those androids. I remember him runnin up on the female one yelling "this is for gohan!" and just vaporizing her ass with an energy blast to the face.<p><p> What's also funny is how the present Trunks grows up to be a pussy instead of the badass sword wielding one from the future.<p><p> Hey... this sounds like Heroes...

  • Nov. 26, 2008, 10:29 a.m. CST

    instead of trying to go back in time to kill John....


    ...why wouldn't the Terminators just hunt down Kyle Reese in the future and prevent him from ever going back and fathering him? Or....why the fuck wouldn't they just drop a nuke on the hospital where Sarah is giving birth? <p>Yeah. Thats why this franchise is fucking stupid.

    Hey Danny Glover: Why stop there? Let's look at real life

    by Stormwatcher

    Why didn't we say in 2000: WTF? Florida? Old Hebrews voting for Buchanan? Simple logic says its BS. Let's not let the clear loser win? Or in 2003 say "Bagdad? Really? Badgdad? Uh... Sorry boss but even your best guy Powell says this is a stretch and all those global demonstrations makes us believe the world will be against us and we know that military spending is never in check and we really can't afford a war' but nah that's real world logic and that doesn't work in the movies.... err. (to be a total sarcastic dick) wait a minute, that was OUR world!!!! We did it to ourselves!!!! Holy Shit! How could we be so stupid. And then the curtain rises and we see some bored 14 year olds watching us on their PS4 laughing at how bad the latest Roland Emmerich movie is that we have been staring in since 1999. But that would be applying logic right?

    posted on aicn some time ago regarding avatar, and this company behind a new poster technology being developed where there's actual movement when you pass it, as opposed to the usual cheesy lenticular effect? there was a link to said company's website that showcased a clip of this soccer player dribbling a ball and it was awesome as hell. cameron expressed interest in using this technology in unison with advertisement for avatar.

    OK nerds, here is the deal. While you all bitch and moan about timelines and continuity, you have to keep in mind that most of America is a bunch of morons. <br> Most people don't think about time travel that much to even realize that these movies MAKE NO SENSE. With Christian "Mr. 1 Billion in Box Office Sales" Bale in the lead role, I expect this to do pretty well. <br> Some movies you just have to turn your brain off... I think this is one of them.

    Why they didn't hunt Kyle Reese down.

    by Shan

    In the first movie, Kyle himself said no-one knew who the father of John Connor was. Skynet had no idea either. Then of course more movies came along and potentially confused that issue but originally, they did have that avenue covered.

    by TheWaqman

    ...he flip flops between good and bad all the time. And actually to be honest he hasn't given a good performance since American Psycho. Batman? That was only good because of Nolan and the supporting cast. Machinist? All he did was lose a lot of weight, gimmicky performance. I think there are much much much much better actors out there.

    What, John Connor's supposed to be the second coming of Christ? I'm looking forward to the flick, but that title makes my oatmeal hit the wall.

  • Nov. 27, 2008, 9:45 a.m. CST

    re: So, just for fun...

    by Royston Lodge

    How would I end the franchise? I've always been bothered by the idea that Skynet's big idea once it achieves sentience is to fuck up the planet's ecology. What does Skynet GAIN from that? The flicks never really explain WHY Skynet makes the decision to start this disastrous war. The only conclusion the story (so far) has left us is that Skynet isn't just sentient - it's also insane. The Matrix got around that problem by making it the humans that fuck the planet up. So, I'd finish off the whole Terminator narrative by having Skynet act in self-defense as a REACTION to the actions of the time-travelling humans who want to destroy it. In other words, if Kyle Reese had never been sent back in time and John Connor had never been born, then Judgement Day never would have happened. In fact, the Terminators are trying to kill John Connor in order to PREVENT Judgement Day from happening. Sure, it creates a temporal paradox of silly proportions, but this is Terminator and paradoxes have never been a problem for the series before!

    by Mr. Charmand Grimloch

    this film is better than the laughably terrible television show that bears the Terminator name. Thankfully, it appears that total piece of dog shit will face cancellation before the spring, given the fact that the ratings have completely tanked, quite justifiably, as each week brings a new reason to groan. If its not Sarah enrolling her son in school, placing him directly in harm's way, its his "uncle" (eyes roll skyward) Reese taking him to military training, and enrolling him there. Let us just ignore the complete lack of credibility to these actions, given the fact that there would be no way he could engage in a normal routine under the circumstances. Its truly one of the most poorly conceived programs I've ever witnessed, and that includes the terrible, overrated shitfest that Ron Moore recently created.
