We’re only a few weeks out of the summer movie season, but soon you’ll be able to relive the action and explosions as all of the biggest hits roll out on DVD. Join the resistance on December 1st when Warner Home Video releases Terminator Salvation on Blu-ray and DVD.
It’s 2018 and the Terminators have taken over. They kill or capture anything they find roaming the post-apocalyptic landscape. A group of the few surviving humans have banded together into the Resistance, working to take down the artificial intelligence controlling the army of Terminators, Skynet. As the leader of the Resistance, the time has come for John Connor (Christian Bale) to rise up and protect the human race from the devastating future he’s been warned about. Connor must race to destroy Skynet before it can develop new technology to squash the Resistance forever.
You’ll have the option to purchase the single-disc DVD for $28.99 or the three-disc Blu-ray edition for $35.99. Terminator Salvation may not live up to its predecessors, but it’s still an enjoyable, action-packed film that’s a vital piece of the franchise. If John Connor isn’t you’re hero, I’d opt for the DVD version, which comes with the theatrical version of the film, a look at the transformation of a Ducati bike into a Terminator in “The Moto-Terminator,” and a digital copy of the movie. On the other hand, if you’re a longtime fan of the series, the $35.99 might be worth spending on the BD. It comes with the theatrical and director’s cuts of the film, a featurette about the reinvention of the franchise called “Reforging the Future,” “The Moto-Terminator,” the “Resist or be Terminated” video archive, the Terminator Salvation Movie Prequel Digital Comic Issue #1, and, most significantly, Maximum Movie Mode. This feature allows the viewer to watch a presentation given by director McG on all of the details of Terminator Salvation while you watch the film.
