The trailer has arrived for Terminator: Dark Fate, the franchise entry set to ignore everything’s that’s come after Terminator 2: Judgement Day. May as well.
James Cameron returns in a much more hands-on capacity this time around, working as producer and helping craft the story. Directing is Tim Miller, the visual effects and CG animation guru who broke out in a big way with his directorial debut, Deadpool. So, what do we have here?
It’s an okay trailer, driving home some points of excitement such as the return of Linda Hamilton, who’s looking oh-so badass reprising her role as Sarah Connor, and snippets of a very powerful-looking new villain in the form of the new Terminator, played by Gabriel Luna. The trailer’s beats don’t offer up much in the way of fresh, and kind of brings to mind a number of the other films they’re wanting us to forget about. Still, it’s just our first look, and with Cameron more involved, Miller at the helm, and Hamilton back as Sarah, this thing more than deserves a hold on judgement. Fingers crossed for what unfolds.
Terminator: Dark Fate, also starring Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, and Diego Boneta, will be arriving in Australian cinemas on October 31st and opening in the US on November 1st.
Linda Hamilton (“Sarah Connor”) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (“T-800”) return in their iconic roles in Terminator: Dark Fate, directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and produced by visionary filmmaker James Cameron and David Ellison. Following the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: Dark Fate also stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta.
