While many are still trying to gather more bits about the storyline of the latest "Terminator" installment, "Terminator Salvation", from any where they can, one particular place possibly missed out is from the title itself. Talking about the forthcoming action movie, director McG hinted that the title of the movie means more than a mere designation.
To MTV News, the 40-year-old filmmaker suggested that the "Salvation" in "Terminator Salvation" withholds a broad message of the second chance human gets after the apocalypse. "Even though we may sin, ultimately we deserve a second chance," explained McG. It is then explained that the using of the title to decipher the plot is similar to "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" when the "Judgment Day" became the shorthand of the apocalypse.
Teasing further, the director known for his works in television series, including "The O.C.", "Supernatural" and "Chuck" shared that the title refers to the actions of a specific character. "Sometimes life is worth living when you make sacrifices so others may benefit," he said. It is still unclear though which character he means.
The fourth installment of the "Terminator" franchise, "Terminator Salvation" is set in post-apocalyptic 2018 when human survivors join John Connor in his resistance army to battle the Skynet's killing robots. Then, a stranger whose past could not be justified, Marcus Wright, comes along and shakes Connor's belief to the core. Continuing the struggles against the robots, they soon find out a terrible secret behind the elimination of mankind.
To be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, the movie stars Christian Bale and Sam Worthington as Connor and Wright. They will be supported by Moon Bloodgood, Common, Bryce Dallas Howard, Helena Bonham Carter, Anton Yelchin and many others. The action fantasy flick is slated for May 22, 2009.
