The ma­chines have risen yet again, giv­ing you another chance to view art and im­agery from the Ter­mi­na­tor sand­box

Au­thor David S Co­hen he rights to all forms of the un­stop­pable killer ro­bot fran­chise have been bought up by brother and sis­ter duo David El­li­son and Dana Gold­berg, AKA Skydance Pro­duc­tions, mak­ing this be­hind-thescenes book their story.

Judged solely as an art book, we can’t rec­om­mend this – but then, be­sides the un­mis­tak­able Arnie fac­tor, the Ter­mi­na­tor fran­chise has never re­ally stood out vis­ually from the mul­ti­tude of other post-apoc­a­lyp­tic

Avail­able Now sci-fi fran­chises in cin­ema and gam­ing. Turn­ing these pages, you’re greeted by brushed me­tal grey and dark blue lay­out, with de­signs for killing ma­chin­ery and fu­tur­is­tic mech suits that could have come straight out of most generic shoot­ers.

With sto­ry­boards and rough sketches used more as dec­o­ra­tion to the text than stand­alone fac­sim­i­les to study, this is not an in-depth book by any stretch of the imag­i­na­tion. Yet the nar­ra­tive skips along, and dig­i­tal artists will be di­verted by the in­ves­ti­ga­tion into how the ef­fects team pit­ted the real Sch­warzeneg­ger against his younger self, among a host of com­plex set pieces. Still, a more holis­tic guide to the fran­chise would be money bet­ter spent than this Mak­ing of… book.
