Terminator trailer

Latest Terminator Salvaion trailer.

Countdown to "Terminator Salvation"

The countdown is on!!
With only a few months remaining until the release of the movie, there is a fair amount of buzz about the fourth installment of the franchise. While we can all debate about wheather 'T3" was good/bad, important/unimportant, etc, the mood for this movie is exciting. First off Christian Bale gives the movie class straight away. People are exciting seeing Christian in anything he does. With the success of "The Dark Knight" last year, Christian is now the hottest star in Hollywood. And for the second straight year features in the most anticipated movie of the year.
At first look from the previously released trailers, the movie looks fantastic and McG, so far, looks to really have continued the story in the true nature that it was originally told in the first movie. The possible, and likely involvement of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton only adds to the anticipation of seeing this movie, no matter how small their involvement may be. I think McG is definetly making a movie for the real Terminator fan and hopefully he has delivered. Bring it on!!!

Termintor Salvation produces in lawsuit

Producer Moritz Borman claims he helped arrange for fellow producers Anderson and Kubicek to acquire the rights to the Terminator franchise for their production company Halcyon Co back in 2007. Not only did it give the two full rights over the production of Terminator Salvation, but also any future sequels they may want to make, as well as any merchandising and licensing.
Borman claims financial backing for the movie was secured through investment fund Pacificor LLC in exchange for approval rights over the movie and all creative decisions, and in return he would get a $5 million fee.
However Borman says the pair failed to honor their initial agreement, essentially “hijacking” the production in July of last year and didn’t pay him his $2.5 million fee he was due at that point in time. The legal document has been released and reads:

Notwithstanding the fact that defendants obtained the substantial franchise rights and assets through Borman, Anderson and Kubicek failed to honor their assurances, representations and contractual obligations to Borman. Defendants’ egregious fraud, bad faith conduct and refusal to abide by their contracts has led to the filing of this lawsuit.”

“It also came to light that Anderson and Kubicek did not have the means to finance the picture, had defaulted on numerous loans and owed over $1 million to creditors on the picture.”
He is now seeking $160 million in damages through the LA courts.

Schwarzenegger's Terminator Salvation cameo

Will he or won't he?? Arnold basically confirmed that he will appear in the movie, but didn't give any details away on what his role is.

Talking with The Arnold Fans, Schwarzenegger said he does appear in the movie – but only very briefly, and he hasn’t announced his participation previously because he didn’t want his minuscule presence in the movie to take anything away from the ‘stars’ of the film.
‘’To kind of have them go out and promote the movie and say you know ‘Arnold is in the movie’ and everyone thinks that I'm the Terminator, and in fact you only see one second of me in there, I don't think it's the right thing to do”, says Schwarzenegger of his brief cameo as the T-800. ‘’And you know that's the danger of that, and that's why I felt reluctant to be part of the movie in the first place. So it doesn't get promoted that way.’’
