When a fourth Terminator film was first announced, it was revealed that the film would be the first of a planned three-film story arc, or trilogy. Halcyon has already announced the development of Terminator 5. All that is needed before they get the official green light is a nice opening weekend box office, which at this point, is pretty much expected.
There has been a lot of internet chatter about the ending of Terminator Salvation. An early internet leak of the film’s finale angered fans enough to warrant a rewrite. But how does the film end? Obviously the war is far from over by the time the credits role. So does the movie end on a high-note like A New Hope, or more of a dark cliffhanger like Empire Strikes Back?
“The ending is indeed elliptical,” McG tells MTV . “And it challenges the audience. It’s not a happy little bow of an ending at all. The ending is tough and requires reflection, and in some degrees it bifurcates the audience. You walk back to the car and one person thinks it means this, and the other person thinks it means that.”
One thing is for sure, this is not the ending that Sarah Connor told us about.
