Welcome to the day after #JudgmentDay.
Paramount Pictures has released the second trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate, the sequel/soft-reboot of the Terminator franchise, following the story year after the events of T2. Check out the trailer below:
The synopsis provided states: “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.”
This will be the first Terminator film produced by James Cameron since Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Dark Fate will also be a sequel to Judgment Day, seemingly ignoring or erasing Rise of the Machines, Salvation, and Genisys from the timeline. Cameron may be looking to start fresh using the first 2 movies’ continuity, rather than use the rest’s divisive continuity.
Terminator: Dark Fate will star Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna and Diego Boneta. Tim Miller (Deadpool) will direct the movie.
Cameron stated during his Yahoo interview that he had urged the filmmakers to bring back Linda Hamilton to play the role of Sarah Connor. He also commented further on Schwarzenegger’s involvement, “I can’t be involved in this film at all if Arnold [Schwarzenegger] is not in it.” and he urged the filmmakers to bring back Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor.
It has been stated that the movie will take place in Mexico City, following Natalia Reyes’ Dani Ramos who is being hunted by Gabriel Luna’s Terminator. It is unknown how Lind Hamilton’s Sarah Connor will fit into the story, along with Schwarzenegger’s Terminator. It is also unconfirmed whether a version of John Connor will appear in this movie, considering his significance to the Terminator franchise.
Terminator: Dark Fate will release in theatres November 1st 2019.
