First picture of Arnie in Terminator Salvation
The first picture of Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator Salvation as the T-800 (or T-101 depending on how you prefer to classify it) has appeared online and it doesn't look have bad. All the CGI work has resulted in something almost like Arnie did in the previous Terminators.
What will be interesting is to see it walking and talking and see how it really interacts with the other characters in the film. The real question is have ILM pulled off the complex CGI enough to make us believe the old Terminator is back?
They've really had their work cut out for them, and you can see the slightly bigger image of his upper body and face over at AITH who found it over on nocutnews – good luck to non-Asian browsers in finding the original image!
I'm rather liking it, and I now do believe that they could bring the T-800 back without Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's a shame that they can, but they can none the less.
You know I'm getting rather worried because I haven't seen a single piece of footage, still or film, from Terminator Salvation that I haven't liked. Sure I don't like some ideas and concepts that have been carried through, but they are just bit players in the entirety of the film.
I'm really thinking that McG might have delivered.
