Your Weekly Terminator Links – Round 5

May 17th, 2009

1. WIN TICKETS TO AN ADVANCE SCREENING!!!

On Tuesday, May 19th we’re holding a special preview screening of Terminator Salvation, and you have a chance to win tickets. If you show up at Dundas Square (at the corner of Yonge and Dundas in Toronto) at 6:30 PM dressed up as one of John Connor’s Resistance fighters, you have a chance to win VIP seating to a 7:00 screening at the Yonge and Dundas AMC theatre, as well as the chance to win a bunch of cool Terminator swag! Get creative: come dressed in army fatigues, covered in robot bits, or whatever you think a Resistance soldier should look like.

2. A Lengthy Chat With McG…

Check out Esquire’s interview with McG, where the director acknowledges that a good chunk of people hate him. One of the funniest, most honest moments of celebrity self-awareness I’ve ever seen. Read more here.

3. A Visual History of Human-Slaying Robots

IGN.com has compiled a wicked article on the various Terminator models seen throughout the franchise. A good primer for those of you who are behind on your robot anatomy. Read it here.

4. And a Look Forward…

When you’re done with IGN’s piece, head over to io9 to see some exclusive pictures of the Hydrobot, a new aquatic Termintor. Because every good army needs a navy. See the pictures here

5. And Get Ready for Halloween…

How am I only learning about these now?!

Your Weekly Terminator Links – Round 3

May 3rd, 2009

1. The Real Cyberdyne Systems.

This is not a viral site, nor is this a joke. This is the website for an actual Japanese corporation called Cyberdyne that is currently developing “cyborg-type” technology. I spent a good thirty minutes staring at this site before I was ready to believe it wasn’t an elaborate hoax. Judgment Day is coming!

2. Some more glory shots of the T-600

Check out the National Post’s coverage of the T-600’s stay in Toronto. Their report on the event is less than enthusiastic. Apparently the serious journalist really badly wanted to see a Terminator that could actually kill people. See what he has to say here.

3. Interviews with the stars

Check out ign.com’s coverage of Terminator Salvation, complete with interviews from a “roadshow” event a few months back. See it here.

4. Check out the video game

Head over to the official site for the Terminator Salvation video game. Even if you’re not a big fan of movie tie-in games, you should give this one a chance. It’s a hard premise to get wrong: kill robots. Learn more here.
