Terminator Salvation images online

Some new Terminator Salvation set shots have hit the 'net and while they don't offer us glimpses of Christian Bale in character or a CGI-Arnie they're still intriguing.

Who's that soldier and why does he look like Shia LaBeouf? How are the crew able to sit that close to a Terminator explosion? And isn't that the truck from Terminator 3?

Hit our gallery to ponder the answers and good work to Cinemablend for finding the shots.

Practical effects

With at least one of the images being a positive sign that McG will be relying on practical effects for his take on Terminator - that's a real chopper he's set on fire - and another featuring a big gun, it seems the franchise is in safe hands. Who knew?
