The Terminator Salvation trailer actually looks pretty cool. But of course, looks can be deceiving. All I can say is, there are some kick ass bikes whizzing by, and the first half of the trailer looks like a try post-apocalyptic desert, a-la The Road Warrior. The robots are rusty and more menacing also. I got a close look at one of those nasty tin men at San Diego Comic-Con. So long shiny chrome skulls.
Terminator Salvation is directed by McG (Charlie’s Angels, We Are Marshall), with a script by the writing duo John D. Brancato and Michael Ferris, the same team that scripted 2003’s Terminator 3.
Salvation arrives in theaters next summer on May 22nd, 2009.
