There’s been quite a bit of talk about Terminator: Genisys in the last week from actor Jai Courtney who is playing Kyle Reese in the film which hits July 1, 2015.
He’s talked about the films POSSIBLE rating based on the film they shot and their not being any f-words in the script as likely to be PG-13. I shouldn’t need to remind anyone how dark and gritty a film can be with that rating. I will also remind you that the film is still being edited, sound designed, digital effects created and fine tuned etc. and thus for obvious reasons the film itself has not been submitted for a rating from the MPAA.
He also mentioned that it was kind of funny working with the endoskeleton actors in that they were people dressed in performance capture suits. This has me very excited as such technology really has a chance to bring the endo armies of Skynet to life in a way that will make them seem more real than ever before.
For those who are worried about that meaning there was no puppetry work at all, we have really no information either way but I’d say that there would still be puppetry work in certain shots and circumstances. I think Terminator and Jurassic World both sequels I’m greatly looking forward to using performance capture technology for Endos and certain Dinos respectively it makes sense to embrace the advancements in technological outgrowth and film making enhancements.

Timothy Zahn’s addition to the Terminator Salvation world has been released in both online and traditional stores very recently, it is entitled Terminator Salvation: Trial By Fire.
Trial By Fire picks up right after the film ends and is a book I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced, it could be the last look into the Salvation version of the Terminator future as well. Since all the legal shenanigans has threatened to swallow up all things Terminator again, of course us fans are used to this by now…after all there have been legal issues between each and every Terminator film.
