This Week In Viral: Terminator Viral Ends?

by Dan Koelsch

Terminator Salvation opened this weekend, and thus another viral ends. Or does it? One of the challenges of covering viral campaigns is knowing when they really end. Usually it’s the weekend, if not the day, the movie opens in theaters. However, even if the main viral campaign ends, tidbits of it may linger for months (see: Cloverfield), usually in anticipation of the DVD release or even a sequel. Also, the websites created for these campaigns seem to last far beyond the movie’s opening, so anything’s possible.






The Terminator viral fits the bill for a viral that ends but leaves enough openings for more updates in the future. The group from resistorbeterminated.com seem to think they’ve won a major battle against Skynet, but it mirrors an ominous plot-point from the film itself. Also, the Skynet webpage is stuck on the “…RECALCULATING…” message, so who knows what could happen next? However, as of the writing of this article, there have been no updates for about 4 days. So, looks like we can close the book on the Terminator Salvation Viral Campaign…for now.
