TERMINATOR: DARK FATE takes place 27 years after the events of JUDGMENT DAY and finds a new Terminator (Gabriel Luna) sent from the future by Skynet with orders to terminator Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), a hybrid cyborg human (Mackenzie Davis), and her friends. Thankfully, Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) comes to the rescue, along with the original Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger), in order to continue the fight for the future.
A handful of new character posters for TERMINATOR: DARK FATE have been released, which feature the main characters looking rather grim. Still, nice to see Schwarzenegger rocking the shades once more.
As we know, TERMINATOR: DARK FATE marks the return of James Cameron, who is back in the saddle for the first time since TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY, and Cameron has said that the film could be the start of a brand-new trilogy. “We spent several weeks breaking story and figuring out what type of story we wanted to tell so we would have something to pitch Linda. We rolled up our sleeves and started to break out the story and when we got a handle on something we looked at it as a three-film arc, so there is a greater story there to be told,” Cameron said. “If we get fortunate enough to make some money with Dark Fate we know exactly where we can go with the subsequent films.” As the previous two films were also planned to be the first of a new trilogy, I’m not exactly optimistic, but history has shown us never to bet against James Cameron.
TERMINATOR: DARK FATE will hit theaters on November 1, 2019.
