Terminator Salvation

Trivia: When Conner takes out the bike between the two cars, the music being played is the same from T2 when they were in the arcade at the shopping mall.

Suggested correction: The song is You Could be Mine by Guns 'n Roses. The song does not play while John is in the arcade, Tim is playing the song on a boombox while he and John are riding to the mall. The song also plays over the end credits of Terminator 2.


Factual error: The FN SCAR-L used by Barnes would not have existed because it was only in early development when Judgement Day took place in 2004 and as such would never have made it into production.

Suggested correction: The FN SCAR-L was already being produced by the time Judgment Day took place. And even if it wasn't, it's possible in the 14 years after Judgment Day, the resistance (or other survivors) was able to continue its production. Also, keep in mind that the 2004 in this timeline was a bit more advanced than the 2004 of our world (where early prototypes of hunter killers and other machines from the future were already being assembled). Because of this, the weapon could have been produced earlier.

Continuity mistake: When John Connor is carried to the helicopter, we can see the older lady Virginia in the helicopter. After the helicopter becomes airborne, Virginia is not seen again. (01:41:10 - 01:41:50)

More quotes from Terminator Salvation

Trivia: Reese's introduction isn't the only thing that stays the same about the character between movies. Here he uses his preferred weapon - a sawed-off shotgun. Marcus isn't keen on having a gun aimed at him though, so he snatches it out of Reese's hands, then teaches him a trick to keep that from happening - fashioning a safety strap. Reese puts that same trick to use after he steals a police shotgun in The Terminator. (00:49:55 - 01:49:58)

More trivia for Terminator Salvation

Question: Why was John Connor jumping of the chopper into the sea, while he knew the commander of the submarine refuses to meet him? Isn't it a suicide?

Answer: Perhaps, but once the submarine captain learns that John Connor has just jumped off the helicopter, what is he supposed to do? Let John drown? John must have known the Captain would have little choice but to pick John up.
