Plot Summary and Cast Listing Complete for Fourth Terminator Movie as Production Begins for Release Next Year

Posted on Friday, May 23rd, 2008 11:28 AM by Scott Jentsch

Warner Bros. Pictures announced in a press release today that the fourth Terminator movie, Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins, has begun production in New Mexico. The movie is scheduled for release in theaters on May 22, 2009.

We knew before that Christian Bale was going to play John Connor, but now we have a more complete cast listing and a plot summary to go with the cast of characters:

In the highly anticipated new installment of The Terminator film franchise, set in post-apocalyptic 2018, Christian Bale stars as John Connor, the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright (Sam Worthington), a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past. As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.

The film also stars Anton Yelchin as Kyle Reese, Charlotte Gainsbourg as Kate Connor, Moon Bloodgood as Blair Williams, Common as Barnes, and Jadagrace as Star.

The movie is the first of a planned second trilogy of Terminator movies, the prospects of which will greatly depend upon the success of this first installment. No doubt, the success of the TV series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles had something to do with the idea of continuing the Terminator story, and if they use a similar tone, I think they'll be successful with it. The show has proven that there is more to tell in the storyline, and hopefully, the people behind the new movie will show some restraint when it comes to budget and flash vs. story and character development.

As we collect information, we'll add it to the movie's Information Page!
