'Terminator Salvation' About to Roll Camera

May 08, 2008 04:26:06 GMT


Though many have determined to finish their filming before July or even decided to postpone the productions due to the fear of the upcoming actors strike, those behind the "Terminator Salvation" seems to be undeterred by the situation. On Monday, May 12, the action movie about the fight for human race survival against killing machines will fall into production.

The particular starting date has been thought of by many Hollywood watchers to be a late start for filming since the Screen Actors Guild contract will reach its expire date on June 30 which is a bit more than a month away. By starting late, "Teminator Salvation" is said to be risking much since it won't get special "strike expense" insurance coverage as a compensation of delaying production and the fact that it is extremely difficult to halt production midway through. Still, an inside source have noted that filmmakers behind the fourth installment of the franchise have taken legal precautions on the matter and stated that the filming will be put on hold in case the strike does go on.

May 08, 2008 03:29:44 GMT


What happen when you put a big fat lazy panda voiced by the comical Jack Black in an animated Kung Fu movie? You'll get a hilarious DreamWorks' latest film with the name of "Kung Fu Panda" and that is exactly what the second trailer wants to put across. Though relatively short with less than two minutes of running time, the trailer still manages to bring chuckles, if better laughters in.

Introducing the kung fu masters made legend by their ancient style of kung fu, the trailer kicks off with a subtle description made by narrator for typical classic martial art movies. However, the collected voice of the narrator quickly turns temperamental when the last character he is preluding doesn't strike a glorious pose like the others, even worse he even has yet to show his face on screen. The slacker turns up to be Panda, the last creature others think of being the "Chosen One".
