SDCC 08: McG Gets Blessing For R Rating For ‘Terminator Salvation’

Geeks of Doom Invade SDCC 2008

Terminator SalvationTerminator Salvation director McG appeared on the panel for his upcoming Terminator film, which stars Christian Bale as the adult John Connor.

McG dove right into the main question on every Terminator fan’s mind: What will Terminator Salvation be rated? It’s been speculated that T4 would be rated PG-13, which met with disdain from fans of the franchise, considering the original film trilogy was R rated.

While McG just came in from filming the fourth film in New Mexico, it’s not definite yet what the rating will be. But, the director did assure everyone that he’s been given the blessing from Warner Bros. to make an R-rated movie. This means that if when McG completes the movie it ends up being an R-rated film, he has the go-ahead to release it that way without pressure to cut it down for a PG-13 rating.

We just saw some footage from film and it looks amazing! Right now, McG, along with members of the film’s cast — Sam Worthington, Anton Yelchin, Moon Bloodgood, Common, and Bryce Dallas Howard. Bale is off in Japan supported The Dark Knight, but McG called him from the staged and left him a message so he could hear the fans’ reaction to the news that they’d be seeing never-seen-before footage from the film.

We’ll have full coverage of the panel as soon as possible, but for now, rejoice! T4 might get the much-demanded R-rating!

I'm totally looking forward to seeing the new Terminator... Christian Bale tends to do a great job no matter what role he takes
