Paramount’s new trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate sees the return of Linda Hamilton to the franchise and original director James Cameron as a producer.
This latest trailer for Dark Fate almost strikes a perfect tome and surprisingly enough doesn’t rehash too much from the previous released trailer. Terminator: Dark Fate reunites Linda Hamilton with Arnold Schwarzenegger for the first time since 1992’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Dark Fate will ignore the third, fourth and fifth films in the series and will serve as a direct sequel to Cameron‘s Terminator 2.
In a recent online interview Cameron talked about how Dark Fate’s time-travel aspects will erase the events of the three previous movies.
“I suppose it is an unusual situation from a high-level perspective since I wasn’t involved in three intervening films, but when I talked to David Ellison about it his vision for this was basically to go back to basics and do a continuation from Terminator 2, which is one of his favorite films. He’s always believed in the potential of Terminator but he really felt that his own film, Genysis — and he was quite honest with me about this — fell short of the mark and didn’t really do what he had wanted it to do. So he said, ‘Let’s start with a blank slate and take it back to Terminator 2.’ And that idea was intriguing.”
Cameron also touched on the one thing everyone agreed upon and wanted to see happen and that was the return of Sarah Connor but only if Linda Hamilton returned, not someone else.
“We spent several weeks breaking story and figuring out what type of story we wanted to tell so we would have something to pitch Linda. We rolled up our sleeves and started to break out the story and when we got a handle on something we looked at it as a three-film arc, so there is a greater story there to be told. If we get fortunate enough to make some money with Dark Fate we know exactly where we can go with the subsequent films.”
Terminator: Dark Fate opens in theaters on November 1, 2019.
