A new interview with James Cameron reveals more information of his involvement in the movie; talking about the return of Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger to their famous roles.
At 8:24 and 12:40 of the following interview with Flicks and the City, James Cameron states that the movie is indeed Rated R. How soft that R will be is still a question that fans looking for a much darker toned movie will be asking but so far it’s good news concerning an age rating.
Thanks to Terminator Fans – Darren Dilliway (Twitter), and Eric Fetchet (Facebook), for sharing the video with us.
It appears that the above video may have been removed, so we have transcribed the relevant sections where Jim discusses the rating of T:DF.
At around 8:24 in the video, Jim says:
“I think, tonally, what makes this a direct sequel to T1 and T2 is as much about the tone as it is about the narrative: it’s R rated, it’s grim, it’s gritty, it’s fast, it’s intense, it’s linear. The whole story takes place in 36 hours. It’s not this kind of grandiose, complex story. It’s just very focused on the characters, it’s very now, it’s very present and it’s just a fast white-knuckle ride.”Transcribed by TheTerminatorFans.com
At around 12:40 Jim says:
“So Sarah has become a Terminator hunter, she’s not waiting to be hunted by a Terminator, she hunts them. She’s figured out a way to be there when they pop through time and she just blows their shit away. pretty much that simple – hey, it’s gonna be an R rated movie, so I can swear.”Transcribed by TheTerminatorFans.com
