The film actually had a few decent moments and the Harvester robot was pretty cool. Was it as good as Terminator 1 & 2? God no, but Bale brought genuine intensity to Connor and made him feel like a man on the edge.
Anyway, while promoting Exodus: Gods and Kings, former John Connor Bale was asked what he thought about Paramount’s upcoming Terminator Genisys, in light of the new trailer.
“I wish them better luck than we had,” the actor told MTV. Bale continued, “[Salvation] didn’t work for us. It was a shame, but everything was against us.” When asked if he was approached about coming back for Genisys, he added, “I didn’t talk with anyone about it. I knew that we gave it a shot; it didn’t work. I know the reasons for that… Wisdom is sometimes knowing when you just need to walk away. I wish them the best. I hope it does work.
I have to admit I’m not won over by the trailer to Genisys so far, but I can guarantee I’ll be there opening night anyway to support Arnie.
