The long-awaited fourth Terminator is set for release June 3rd, with fans around the world hoping for something to finally purge all traces of the underwhelming Rise of the Machines from their memories.
Terminator Salvation takes place in a post-apocalyptic 2018 and stars Christian Bale as John Connor, mankind’s last hope in the war against Skynet and its army of Terminators.
But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.
This latest installment in the franchise is directed by McG, from a screenplay by Michael Ferris and John Brancato.
The film is produced by Moritz Borman, Derek Anderson, Victor Kubicek and Jeffrey Silver, and executive produced by Peter D. Graves, Bahman Naraghi, Mario F. Kassar, Andrew G. Vajna, Joel B. Michaels, Dan Lin and Jeanne Allgood.
