The Terminator Gets A Downgrade


Here is our first look at the upgraded downgraded and much bulkier Terminator T-600 as it will be featured in the upcoming film Terminator: Salvation, starring Christian Bale as John Connor. As you can see, this “older” version of the Terminator model (which is, I think, newer than the models we saw in Terminator, T-2: Judgment Day and Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines) looks much more heavy duty than ever before … due to the time travel elements in the storyline, even tho this is the “newest” Terminator that we’ve seen, it’s older than the previous models (which came from further in the future):

Honestly, as scary as this bad ass robot looks, it pales in comparison to how scary Christian Bale sounded on the set of Terminator: Salvation. In case you missed it the first time, you can click HERE to hear what I’m talking about. Despite Christian’s flare up on set, I still heart him and I am very much looking forward to this new action flick.

    Hm, I don’t care for it. It’s smiling/grinning! Bigger isn’t always better in this case.

    Trent, where is the Sam Lufti lawsuit news on your site? I figured you’d have that mess posted pronto.

  • Aidan

    Oh, Christian. I can’t hate for the rant, because I’ve said much worse. In fact, it makes me even hotter for him. And the remix version on YouTube with the Streisand cameo should totally be released as a single.

  • Liz

    is that flare up for real? It sounds a little over the top. And if it was, who was the asshole that left the recorder going?

    • @Liz — yes it’s real … I, too, think it’s over the top. Christian was on set and he was filming a scene when he blew up, he was wearing a microphone.

  • Lulu

    OH wow…. I was cringing just listening to that!! Oy… I can only imagine the eggshells on that set! eep!

  • This is the T-600 model. It predates almost everything we’ve ever seen from the Terminator franchise.

    • @rich — right, right, damn I hate time travel bullshizz … this is the oldest model Terminator in the newest film, I’ll fix.

    Poor christian bale, he really need to stop doing so much movies!!! Everybody thinks that coz he is english he have to be calm all the F… time.
    The DP did a really fuck up mistake (what in the world goes to see a light in the middle of the scene, if you where professional you have to do it before), no only once, I guess is more than 2 times.
    CB did what director have to do!
    Now everyone thinks that CB is a douche and my god he maybe over react but he is very professional more than any actors. Ashton kdouche was all fuck up coz he wake up at 7 AM for the noice of the next house, he was a really douche to do a video and then says stupid things, most people wake up at 7 am, even real actors.

    I hope CB stop doing comercials movies coz everyone who didn’t know about him before batman or american psyco thinks he is a douche or a diva, well he dosen’t need to act for those people. Thank god he have a solid fan people sence ages!!!

    he’s just gangsta. i would not like to piss him off.

    Gotta love the film business. What other job would let you say that crap and not be fired on the spot :-) Christian, Christian….you need a good spankin’ and I’m just the woman to give it to you.

  • Cristian Bale’s gayish LISP is so thick, you can barely tell what the MoFo is saying, how long is it before he comes strolling out of the closet and chase us all around the room?

  • Neptune

    I don’t really like it. It looks to happy!

    And I couldn’t help but find his outburst funny. Just because it just /doesn’t end/ xD. Although I suppose when your on set for hours on end, and your in the middle of some dramatic awesome scene and a dude wanders out and ruins it, most people would blow up. Not as epically as that, but hey, he’s the goddamn Batman.

  • Alex

    You don’t wanna mess with Christian Bale…he’s a incredibly hot badass…IT’S HOT

  • Tracey

    I still heart him, too, Trent! People need to get over it. There was no reason to leak it anyways other than to try to create some stupid media buzz. I sincerely doubt he’s the only actor in the world to get pissed because someone ruined his scene.
