Release the McG Cut: Director Says There's A Much Darker Cut of Terminator Salvation

By now we know everyone's frustrations with the ever expanding Terminator franchise. It seems that no director could really get it right past Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Each follow up ended up furthering the damage to the timeline with eventual later sequels attempting to repair the mistakes of previous entries while in turn damaging the franchise even more. Now, director McG says that his Terminator Salvation, which actually went to the future war between cybernetic terminators and the resistance, has a much darker cut than what was released to cinemas. When speaking with Comic Book Resources, he had quite a bit to say about his feelings on the movie that got released, how it initially got ravaged and how it's supposedly beginning to age well:

"It's interesting because I feel like we did so much right with Terminator but, ultimately, got just enough wrong that we got beat up a little bit by the fanbase and it really, really broke my heart. And now, strangely, I think the film has started to age better.”

It does seem that the response has been slightly altered in the 11 years since the movie bombed at the box office. With a Christian Bale hot off the success of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, Salvation was run through the ringer:

“There is a different cut: I have my own cut of that film and there's people online that talk about wanting to see that cut. And that's interesting! But I think I got a lot of things right with that."

It would be interesting to see this alternate cut, but we bet the studio is not willing to sink any more money into the film at this point.
