Terminator Salvation - coming soon

Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor (Christian Bale), the man fated to be the leader of the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators, and the future he was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet's operations, where they find out a terrible secret that may lead to the possible annihilation of mankind.

The opening scene has Connor fighting a Terminator on a crashed helicopter. It is shot as a homage to the climax of the original film, where his mother Sarah, having broken her leg, is chased by a crippled Terminator. 

Hot Toys will be releasing the first item from their Terminator Salvation product lineup in April 2009: Terminator Factory - T700 Diorama. This diorama captures T 700 in an assembly line at the Terminator factory. It features T700 light up eyes and light up buttons on the manufacturing machine.

Can't wait for Hot Toys 1/6 scale Terminator Salvation figures. They've already done a crew cut Christian Bale head sculpt before he was Bruce Wayne. Gotta give the man credit for dedication to his craft - Bale broke his hand punching a Terminator prop during filming.
