The Terminator franchise just hasn’t been the same since Terminator 2: Judgement Day. With key creative and performing players missing, it seemed like it would meet a dark fate. However, director Tim Miller and producer James Cameron promise that Terminator: Dark Fate will be different.
Not only are they bringing back Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800, and Edward Furlongas John Connor, but the film will also be a “relentless” and “white-knuckle” actioner going back to the franchise’s R-rated roots. Check out the featurette below.
Time travel can be a very fickle thing. There are no one set of rules that anyone abides by. And that is pretty clear in Terminator: Dark Fate, which not only brings back a seasoned Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and an aged T-800 unit (Arnold Schwarzenegger), as well as John Connor himself. But this time, it will be Edward Furlong, who originated the on-screen character in Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
The news broke today during Paramount’s panel for Terminator: Dark Fate at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate, the latest installment in the long-running film franchise.
The movie, which follows the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, sees original stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to play the roles of Sarah Connor and the T-800. James Cameron, who directed the classic first two entries in the series, is also back as a producer.
You can give the teaser trailer a watch below, where you’ll also find a newly released behind the scenes video and a poster as well.
The first official image from the next Terminator movie has been released. In it, we see Natalia Reyes, Mackenzie Davis, and the returning star of the first two movies, Linda Hamilton.
Hamilton isn’t the only original returning for the new movie, though. Franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger is also back, and The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day director James Cameron is producing the movie.
Back in 2014 a remake to Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi classic RoboCop was released. And while not as disastrous as some believed it would be, the remake did not fare too well critically or financially. Now another attempt at a new entry in the franchise has been announced.
MGM has begun developing RoboCop Returns, and they’ve brought in Neill Blomkamp to direct it. But the movie will not be another remake. Instead, they’re taking a similar approach to the latest in the Halloween franchise and making a direct sequel to Verhoeven’s original.
