Linda Hamilton reprises her role as Sarah Connor in Terminator: Dark Fate, in what is the latest attempt to save this long-running sci-fi franchise.
Connor is joined by a human/machine hybrid soldier, Grace, played by Mackenzie Davis, in an attempt to stop another new deadly Terminator (Gabriel Luna) from seeing the end of days come to pass.
They’ll find help in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T800 (I assume), who appears to have survived his demise in Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).
However, we can’t say for sure whether or not this is the same Terminator from T2, as it’s possible the film’s timeline may have changed between T2 and this new film (Dark Fate is a direct sequel to Terminator 2).
Either way, it’s nice to see Hamilton and Schwarzenegger back on the screen together, reprising their most iconic roles as Sarah Connor and the Terminator, respectively.
Deadpool (2016) director Tim Miller is at the helm on this one and whether the film is good or not, we can be sure to expect some brutal, violent action.
The Terminator franchise has had a tumultuous run since T2, so it’ll be risky going into this one with high expectations.
James Cameron is back on board as a producer on Dark Fate, so we can only hope he has some significant contribution to the film, making it the movie people have wanted for the past 18 years.
Dark Fate arrives in cinemas on 1 November 2019.
