If you’ve been dying to get a better look at what Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger look like in Terminator: Dark Fate, IGN’s got you covered.
We’ve got exclusive images revealing an exciting sneak peek at what to expect from Paramount’s November 1st release, directed by Tim Miller.
These new images come before Paramount will unveil the first footage from Terminator: Dark Fate at CinemaCon. IGN’s Jim Vejvoda is on the ground at the Las Vegas convention, so check back to IGN.com later today for a full footage breakout, as the scenes will not be released widely.
The official synopsis for Terminator: Dark Fate reads: “Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (T-800) return in their iconic roles in Terminator: Dark Fate, directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and produced by visionary filmmaker James Cameron and David Ellison. Following the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: Dark Fate also stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta.”
IGN recently spoke to director Tim Miller to discuss the upcoming Terminator movie. While there have been several Terminator films that have attempted to carry on the iconic franchise’s legacy released in the past decade, Miller said it was Hamilton’s return as Sarah Connor that “made it all click for me” in Dark Fate.
“What makes or breaks a movie is whether I care about the characters when everything starts exploding. I’m sure every action filmmaker says that, but I did really try and focus on the relationships of these characters to one another. And the fact that Linda came back makes this particular Terminator fresh, this story could only continue with her in the role of Sarah Conner. That’s the most important thing for me,” said Miller. “Linda reinvented this character in a way that both honors who she was before and brings something new to the role.”
But it’s not just Hamilton who brings a fresh take on this Terminator sequel. Miller also praised new stars Mackenzie Davis, who plays Grace, and Natalia Reyes, who plays Dani Ramos, for bringing reinvigorated energy to the beloved James Cameron-produced series.
“Mackenzie is fantastic, I think people are going to be amazed by what a bada** she is. And Natalia is wonderful — when you read the script you might think, ‘Oh, she’s not a warrior or a soldier or anything exciting like that,’ or worry perhaps that she might be overshadowed by the other four — but absolutely not. She’s amazing, a-ma-zing,” said Miller.
“Because so much of the film takes place on the messy fringes of society, I wanted to bring an indie film sensibility to an action plot in a way that I don’t think I’ve seen before… at least not on a big budget scale,” he continued. “We have a lot of powerful, moving character moments up front, but toward the back half of the movie, when s**t gets going…. holy f**king s**t —it just doesn’t stop. And we tried very hard to make it all different and fresh — it’s not just people punching each other; it’s a roller coaster ride and I think great.”
Terminator: Dark Fate is produced by James Cameron and David Ellison and hits theaters on November 1, 2019.
