Terminator Salvation opens May 21

The fourth TERMINATOR film finally takes us into the future to witiness John Connor’s fight against Skynet. The plot involves an encounter between Connor (Christian Bale) and Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), who may be a man rescued from the past – or someone sent from the future to foil Connor’s plans. McG (CHARLIE’S ANGELS) directed. Helena Bonham Carter, Anton Yelchin, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jane Alexander, and Michael Ironside round out the cast.

The official release date for TERMINATOR SALVATION is Thursday, May 21, but the first screenings start on Wednesday night at midnight (technically Thursday morning).

When it opens next week at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, the new TERMINATOR film will be presented with a motion simulation process called D-BOX that purports to offer a full emmersive cinematic experience that you can not only see and hear but also feel. Although described as “genuinely new” and “uniquely different,” it sounds a lot like the old Sensurround system to us – which made its debut at the Chinese Theatre way back in the 1970s for EARTHQUAKE.
