Back in May, we learned that Terminator Salvation was gunning for a family friendly PG-13 rating and we chastised them and Hollywood in general for going soft. Then, a few weeks ago, an anonymous scooper sent us some pictures they claimed were from the set of Terminator Salvation.
To say we were skeptical of their legitimacy is an understatement. I mean there weren't any machines and no sign of Christian Bale anywhere. I guess he was too busy prepping his promotional work for his other big ticket movie.
So, imagine our glee and excitement when this post-apocalyptic shot of a charred 7-11 showed up on the New York Times website. As you can see from the shots below, our scooper wasn't stretching the truth at all.
It seems that the machines blew up more than a convenience store and if these shots are any indication of the movie we are going to see next year on May 22, then perhaps we were a bit hasty with our early condemnation of a softer rating.
At this point, we'll keep an open mind and the hope that no matter what rating the movie gets, it will live up to the franchise's legacy. In the meantime, enjoy these exclusive pics and let us know what you think of them.
