I think it is safe to say that Terminator Salvation is going to do great at the box office and make a ton of money. Because of this we will most likely see a couple more Terminator movies hit the theaters in the next few years. McG has previously talked about bring Robert Patrick into the fourth film. Well, McG is back talking about more sequels, here is what he had to say:
“If we have good fortune we have indeed planned out two more ‘Terminator’ pictures. There’s an arc of story [in the new sequels].”
I am sure fortune will smile upon them and that we will see these two other Terminator films. McG goes on to talk about the story arc and the open ending left at the end of Terminator 4.
“The ending is indeed elliptical, 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.”
Now I am even more interested to see the movie because now I really want to know how it ends! Who knows how long it will be before we see a fifth Terminator film because McG has got two other film commitments right now. One is a film version of the Broadway play 'Spring Awakening' and they other film is an updated adaptation of '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' which he is prepping for right now. He then goes on to say that it is up to us the fans on whether or not we see any more Terminator films.
“I would never presume there would be another picture - that is up to the audience. But if the audience jumps up and likes it and wants another one, Christian and I have been talking about it and we’ll see what happens. You have to see how the film is received. And that’s in the hands of the fans.”
So if the fans like it and it makes a good amount of cast then they were successfull in their efforts and the adventures of John Connor will continue.
