Sounds gross doesn’t it? McG, he of the vowel-less name, spoke with MTV recently about his previously announced plans for a fifth and sixth Terminator film. It all depends on the box-office success of this summer’s Terminator Salvation of course, but if all goes well the director says he already has an idea for the story arc. And it all starts with the new film’s end…
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.”
Technically speaking, all three of the previous Terminator films have been open ended to some degree but still managed to be complete films on their own. I’m curious as to what exactly can be construed as vague or obscure in a Terminator film, but my money’s on John Connor being a replicant.
Have you ever been bifurcated on by a loved one? Unpleasant isn’t it?
