The Film: Terminator Salvation (2009)
The pitch to kids: Pizza Hut joined up with the studio to offer footage, while there was a raft of Hulk Hands, masks and other toys to let kids imagine they are killer robots.
The complaints: “Seriously, is this amount of kid-targeted marketing normal for a movie deemed inappropriate for kids under the age of 17?” screamed website TC Games. Which, to be honest, they had a point about when the film was actually aimed at an R across the pond.
What we really think they’re worried about: That it’s actually Skynet taking over the ankle biters with stealth technology.
But really – would kids being killer robots make them any less annoying?
