Terminator Salvation Gets a New Ending

Anytime the ending of a major movie tent pole is spoiled online the studio has to at least change one aspect to keep fans guessing. Looks like the studio has completely revamped the ending to Terminator Salvation...
"Remember the big "Terminator Salvation" spoiler leaked last year? Yeah, the absurd-sounding finale involving a skin-switcheroo with our main characters. Silly but true. That was the ending of the new film. As far as the studio were concerned, they were sticking to it like orange juice on a hairy arm.

Funny how things change...

Was chatting to a friend from Warner Bros today - originally on a totally different topic ("The Green Lantern" - scouting in Australia) - who confirmed he'd seen the film and that there's been big changes to the film over the past few months.

Yep, don't expect to see any Hannibal Lecter-style action from the mysterious Marcus (Sam Worthington's silver-blooded character from the film) in the film when you catch it in May.

The third act of the film has been completely changed "because of the internet leak. The ending doesn't resemble the previous one in any shape or form". And more so, the new ending has tested quite well; it's gotten a much better reaction than the 'big reveal' in the script did.

Funnily enough, Seth Rogen (yes, that Seth Rogen!) was the first to tell me that Warner were considering changing the last act in the film because of the script leak. Rogen said that - via his friend at Warner - the WB were as red as Daredevil about the ending being spoilt online and had begun to rewrite the script. And that's exactly what they did. Its now, according to our friend on the inside, "A complete [180] from the original film. Works better. Probably not as hard to swallow. Real good though".

So there you have it. The ending of "Terminator Salvation" will be a surprise, after all (Please say it now ends with a T-800 being sent back in time to obliterate Mostow's "Rise of the Machines").

The studio had to do something as they felt the air was let out of the bag. They didnt want negative fan speculation to kill the film's potential revenue.
