“The Resistance’s war against Skynet rages on with the sixth installment of the Terminator series,” reports Variety, adding that the James Cameron-produced film “serves as a direct sequel to the first two movies in the franchise, relegating the events of the intervening films to alternate timelines.”
Or, as ET Online: puts it, “Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and James Cameron are together again!”
On Thursday, Paramount Pictures released the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate, and it’s a reunion for the film franchise’s original stars and filmmaker. Hamilton steps back into her role as the badass Sarah Connor, who teams up with Grace (Mackenzie Davis), a woman from the future who shows up in New Mexico and first appears much like Schwarzenegger’s character did in the first movie. Directed by Deadpool’s Tim Miller, Cameron wrote the story treatment for the sequel and was a producer on the film.
After several action scenes, Sarah Connor knocks on the door of an old house, and the original Terminator (Schwarzenegger) appears with a salt-and-pepper beard. “We’re back,” Schwarzenegger, 71, tweeted along with the trailer, alluding to his iconic line “I’ll be back.”
After two days the trailer has racked over 12.5 million views on YouTube, and James Cameron “not only assures that the new entry will be R-rated, but he makes it clear this will be, in more than one way, much more similar to the first two movies in the series,” reports Movieweb — quoting these remarks from one of Cameron’s recent interviews.
“I think, tonally, what makes this a direct sequel to T1 and T2 is as much about the tone as it is about the narrative: it’s R rated, it’s grim, it’s gritty, it’s fast, it’s intense, it’s linear.”
