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.

Trivia & Production Notes

  • This film will look to reinvent the "Terminator" franchise with a storyline that is expected to be told over three movies.

    The first three "Terminator" films all featured Arnold Schwarzenegger; it's unlikely the current governor of California would be involved in the fourth film (although a cameo is possible).

    Halcyon was created by entrepreneurs Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson. It acquired the right to produce "Terminator" films, future merchandising and licensing ventures.
