Dark Fate' with Linda Hamilton & Arnold

Friday, 24 May, 2019

The first trailer for the sixth Terminator movie, Terminator: Dark Fate is here.

The great news, and one we've known for a while, is that Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) is back to kick robots in their behind, as she looks just as good at it as ever.

In a behind-the-scenes featurette, James Cameron said that Terminator: Dark Fate is the "direct sequel" to Terminator and Terminator 2.

In addition to bringing back the original stars, Terminator: Dark Fate introduces Mackenzie Davis as a new part-human Terminator, sent back in time to protect a woman (Natalia Reyes) who is being targeted by evil artificial-intelligence network Skynet. Next, it was 2015's Terminator: Genisys which also tried to launch a new trilogy, this time doubling down on the time-travelling wackiness (and painful spelling) to rewrite the entire story.

That means it's the first Terminator sequel since T2 to feature Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor. Not even Arnie returning to his most famous role (and admittedly turning in a very entertaining performance) could rescue it from all the bad ideas and silly plot twists that got spoiled in trailers though. Hunting them throughout the film will be the Rev 9, a new type of Terminator played by Gabriel Luna (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).

The Terminator series has experienced meteoric highs and lows during its tenure, but it's safe to say that the latest effort Terminator: Dark Fate could be one of the most significant entries in the series.

Not quite as fun as the sight of Linda Hamilton wielding a bazooka, but then what is? You can check out the cast and crew's appearance in the new video below, followed by the new images and an interesting tidbit about the new Terminator. Let us know in the comments down below! Their fist step was hiring Deadpool director and Terminator superfan Tim Miller to direct the film.

Terminator: Dark Fate is due for release on 23 October in the United Kingdom, 31 October in Australia, and 1 November in the US.
