Opening on May 21st is director McG’s “Terminator Salvation”. If you follow me on Twitter, you know I saw the movie yesterday. Unfortunately, WB. has me under embargo, so I apologize for not being able to say X XXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXX.

But let’s get to the reason you’re here.

Just a few hours ago I sat down with director McG for an exclusive video interview about making “Terminator Salvation”. In the coming days I’ll post our entire conversation, but I wanted to post one of the highlights right now.

That’s because he told me the upcoming “Terminator Salvation” DVD/Blu-ray is going to come with between 30 to 40 minutes of deleted scenes!

Since I have heard many filmmakers tell me crazy numbers like this and then it ends up not being true, I followed up with him about that number. He insisted that we’re going to get at least 30 minutes.

Since I can’t talk about the film due to my embargo, let me just say watching 30 more minutes of Christian Bale fighting Terminators sounds great to me.

Anyway, posted below is about a minute and a half of my interview with McG. If you want to go in spoiler free, I STRONGLY suggest not watching this clip. McG speaks freely about the alternate ending on the DVD and what else to expect. I don’t want to ruin the movie for anyone.

You’ve been warned. But if you don’t mind spoilers, I just posted 10 movie clips from “Terminator Salvation”, so click here to watch them.

McG talks deleted scenes

· I ask how many minutes of deleted scenes are on the DVD/Blu-ray – he says 30 to 40 minutes!!

· Talks about the deleted scenes – some of John Conner giving speeches, Moon Bloodgood topless, alternate ending

· Says he walks into the frame and shows the storyboards versus the actual frame

· I then ask if this is going to be one of those times where the filmmaker tells me one thing, but the actual DVD will only have a fraction of them. He insists there are 30 minutes of deleted scenes on the DVD
