It’s been 27 years since the first Terminator saw the light of day. To say that this franchise’s journey was rocky is to say nothing. After Terminator 2 the movies just kept getting worse and worse. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines – complete piece of trash. Terminator Salvation – at this point I can’t even tell you what it was about. And the most recent Terminator Genisys is just plain horrible.
So with the upcoming Terminator movie, it’s only natural that people are worried the franchise is just going to fizzle out. But according to James Cameron, who’s the executive producer, Terminator: Dark Fate will go back to its roots. What exactly does that mean we don’t know, we’ll figure it out in November, but we can always speculate!
First of all let’s talk about the title. “Terminator: Dark Fate” is still technically a working title, so don’t be fooled. Although, seeing as the filming wrapped last November, we should see some teaser trailer fairly soon. In case it’s the final version, you can expect to see some “dark” stuff. Would be cool if this was the worst timeline where John Connor was killed.
Speaking of timelines, what will this movie’s continuity be? Again, according to Cameron, it will ignore all previous flicks after Terminator 2, like they were all just a bad dream. Does this mean Arnie and Linda Hamilton will be back? Yes, yes it does. We’ve already seen how badass Linda will look like, but will grandpa Arnold be able to keep up with the stunts?
Rumors say he won’t be playing that same T-800 from the first two movies, since Sarah Connor lowered him down into a vat of liquid metal. Cameron even mentioned that Schwarzenegger will be “bad”, probably implying that he’s the bad guy. Who would have guessed?
I guess that’s all we know so far. Not that much but at least the movie promises to be interesting and I’m even kind of excited to see that first trailer. What are your thoughts on Terminator: Dark Fate? Comment below!
