As "Terminator Salvation" falls into its post-production phase, director McG comes out with an update about the development of the action thriller. Posting a new message in the film's official blog, the filmmaker whose real name is Joseph McGinty Nichol announced that the taking of the film's principal photography has been completed and now the crew is moving on with the post production.
McG also revealed that both Christian Bale and Sam Worthington have seen the film's early cuts and "seem pleased with where the film is headed". On the visual effect work, he shared, "There's one sequence in particular where we're trying to achieve something that's never been done before. I don't want to talk about it because we haven't been successful yet..."
Talking further about the plot, the 40-year-old described it as "a story of two destinies colliding." He added explaining, "Connor is part of a resistance comprised of the ethnicities that make up the globe. This film is so much more that just Los Angeles. It reflects the global crisis of man, all of man versus machine." The complete blog can be read via WarnerBros.
The fourth installment of the "Terminator" franchise, "Salvation" is set in post-apocalyptic 2018 when human survivors join John Connor in his resistance army to battle the Skynet's killing robots.
