Well, we were excited by the prospect of a new TERMINATOR movie starring Christian Bale… that is until this double dose of questionable decision making on the part of Halcyon Pictures. First, a report on Variety: "Terminator’ guns for kid-friendly rating. Halcyon aims to deliver PG-13 movie." Ok, the name of the movie is THE TERMINATOR. It’s a bout a killer robot from the future who’s only goal is to "terminate" (aka "kill") it’s target (s). And they want to make that kid friendly?! Blame it on LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD. Check out the article on Variety about the rating HERE. And then read about the casting of rapper Common HERE. (No, seriously.) Well, I’ll let the boys over at Aint It Cool do all the ranting. Read their articles about both stories below:
If you’re still interested, TERMINATOR SALVATION: THE FUTURE BEGINS is set for release May 22, 2009. The tory centers on John Connor (Bale), now in his 30s, who leads what is left of the human race in a battle against the machines. Common will play a freedom fighter and member of Connor’s inner circle. McG will direct from a script by John D. Brancato & Michael Ferris and Paul Haggis. Sigh.
