While I have to admit the new ‘Terminator: Dark Fate‘ trailer makes the upcoming sci-fi action film look boring and badly acted (who knows? The movie could be better?), I am excited to see Linda Hamilton back in another movie in the franchise.
Even if, at first, she does seem to be getting her ass kicked more than she is kicking ass.
At least when we see her in the trailer meeting Grace for the first time, and having her own gun pulled on her right away.
That being said, Sarah Connor is back in ‘Terminator: Dark Fate‘ 35 years after the release of The Terminator, the film that started all this.
And Linda Hamilton in any action film in this franchise, or any other, is definitely something to celebrate.
The ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ trailer starts out with Sarah confronting Grace, a soldier-assassin sent from the future to protect Dani, a young woman who has been targeted for assassination. Grace, however, is faster with her reflexes than the older woman, and soon has Sarah pinned up against the wall with a gun pointed at her.
The two women eventually ally in the protection of Dani, however, and head out to find the original Terminator — T-800 “Model 101″/Carl — played again in the movie by Arnold Schwarzenegger.
He is hiding out after having abandoned his original mission, but can help the women train and then weapon up. Even if Sarah does promise she’ll kill him once their mission is over.
The ‘Terminator: Dark Fate‘ trailer does have some excellent action scenes, and some potentially interesting plot points. And it’s fabulous to see the movie’s most famous line being said by Linda Hamilton this time.
In such a throw-away way.
We’ll just have to see when reviews start being published if it is a film actually worth watching.
‘Terminator: Dark Fate‘ was directed by Tim Miller (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Deadpool). It will be in movie theaters on November 1st, 2019.
Meanwhile, watch the ‘Terminator: Dark Fate‘ trailer below. You can’t say there isn’t going to be stellar action.
