Back at San Diego Comic-Con 2019 we saw a behind the scenes featurette for Terminator: Dark Fate which made it seem like the franchise was finally returning to its R-rated roots. But we’ve been told such things before. Way back in 2008 when the fourth entry in the franchise, Terminator Salvation, was on the way, director McG told us that he had been given the blessing to deliver an R-rated movie, but ultimately it ended up being PG-13. And of course, we all know about Terminator Genisys.
But now it’s official: the next Terminator movie has been rated R by the MPAA. It is the first to be given the honor since the third entry in the series, Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. And to mark the occasion, a NSFW extended red band TV spot has been released to show off a little of that R-rated goodness. You can check it out below.
More than two decades have passed since Sarah Connor prevented Judgment Day, changed the future, and re-wrote the fate of the human race. Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) is living a simple life in Mexico City with her brother (Diego Boneta) and father when a highly advanced and deadly new Terminator – a Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) – travels back through time to hunt and kill her. Dani’s survival depends on her joining forces with two warriors: Grace (Mackenzie Davis), an enhanced super-soldier from the future, and a battle-hardened Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton).
As the Rev-9 ruthlessly destroys everything and everyone in its path on the hunt for Dani, the three are led to a T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) from Sarah’s past that may be their last best hope.
