Terminator Salvation update

On the official film blog, director McG has posted another update on the state of Terminator Salvation, which has been filming for the past few weeks in New Mexico. In the post her comments on the plot saying

"This movie takes place several years after Judgment Day, but prior to 2029. Just like it took a long time to get an HD plasma screen in our world, it took Skynet a lot of research and development to get to the T-800, and this movie explores that "space between." We have all been fascinated with the world after Judgment Day. Here it is.

In this film, there are Hydrobots that patrol the water, Transports that move human prisoners around, Harvesters that collect human beings as lab rats for Skynet and Aerostats that survey all that is going on with the resistance the world over.

We've started shooting the T-600 - the bigger, grimier, nastier version that preceded the T-800.

Like Reese says, they're easier to spot but they pack a mini gun and carry kick ass fire power. They're eight-foot tall killers that prowl the badlands looking for anything with a heartbeat to terminate.

Stan Winston, Production Designer Martin Laing and ILM came up with the designs and that thing is on Kyle Reese's ass throughout the entire picture. Wanted to achieve that bummer, rubbery skin, prosthetic look that cloaks an unrelenting machine with a singular focus of killing."

Sounds pretty sweet. I'm a fan of future tech that's not overly advanced somehow. Also, McG addresses the recently leaked supposedly HUGE SPOILER that I won't print here but can be found here. He says pretty clearly that it is in fact Not True.

And finally, McG addresses the issues people were having over the planned PG-13 rating citing Batman Begins for the inspiration.

I have to say, I'm getting much more interested in how this movie playes out the more I hear about it. Hopefully we'l lstart to see some images soon.
