McG Talks about his Crazy Idea for TERMINATOR 5

by Joey Paur

Terminator Salvation is upon us. Soon we will get to see John Connor battle it out with the evil robots that take over the world. It's no surprise that the movie is going to be a huge hit, and that we are going to get another sequel. McG has been hyping up some kind of controversial ending to his Terminator movie but it can't be as insane as what his plans are for Terminator 5.

Here is what McG told Film Journal:

I strongly suspect the next movie is going to take place in a [pre-Judgment Day] 2011. John Connor is going to travel back in time and he's going to have to galvanize the militaries of the world for an impending Skynet invasion. They've figured out time travel to the degree where they can send more than [just] one naked entity. So you're going to have hunter killers and transports and harvesters and everything arriving in our time and Connor fighting back with conventional military warfare, which I think is going to be fucking awesome. I also think he's going to meet a scientist that's going to look a lot like present-day Robert Patrick [who famously played the T-1000 in Terminator 2], talking about stem-cell research and how we can all live as idealized, younger versions of ourselves.

What in the hell!? Is it just me or does this just sound crazy? So pretty much the future is going to come through and take over our present day? If Skynet is sending a bunch of crazy ass robots into the past then isn't that just speeding up the inevitable Judgment day?  I really need a better explanation of what McG is talking about to understand the full concept. One thing I know for sure is that in Terminator 3, Judgment Day happens in 2004, not 2011. So what happens in that seven years? Unless they just forget Terminator 3 actually happened. And don't you think Skynet's technology is so far advanced that our modern day military wouldn't have a chance? Maybe some of the weapons featured on the show 'Future Weapons' would have a chance.

OK what do you think everyone? talk to me.
