The first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate, the latest attempt to reboot the Terminator franchise, arrived today and gave us our first real look at the film’s plot.
There have been mixed feelings about Terminator: Dark Fate to say the very least, with many feeling the franchise should have ended after the flop of Terminator: Genisys. However, the trailer is surprisingly good, introducing the major characters, new versions of the Terminators, and a seeming twist on the long-running trope of “human vs. robot” that has defined the series since the beginning.
As one of the initial naysayers, I was delighted to find myself sucked into the story the trailer is offering. It’s great to see Linda Hamilton back in her role as Sarah Connor, and it’s just possible this is the Terminator sequel we’ve all been waiting for. What do you think of the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate?
27 years after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a new, modified liquid metal Terminator is sent from the future by Skynet in order to terminate Dani Ramos, a hybrid cyborg human, and her friends. Sarah Connor comes to their aid, as well as the original Terminator for a fight for the future.
Terminator: Dark Fate is scheduled to be released on November 1, 2019.
