Terminator Dark Fate Trailer

Paramount Celebrates Anniversary of Judgement Day with “Dark Fate” Trailer

Though fans got their first look at Terminator: Dark Fate back in May, Paramount Pictures utilized the anniversary of the Terminator franchise’s fictional Judgement Day (August 29, 1997) to unleash a full-length trailer for their highly anticipated film.

Though Dark Fate is technically the sixth film in the franchise, it serves as a direct sequel to the hugely successful first two films: Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. While ignoring the other three as existing within alternate timelines, the film looks to return the sluggish franchise to its glory days, complete with the return of Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Edward Furlong, and James Cameron (as producer).

Dark Fate takes place 27 years after the events of Judgement Day. A new, highly modified Terminator (Gabriel Luna) has been sent from the future by Skynet to kill Dani Ramos (Natalie Reyes), a hybrid cyborg human (Mackenzie Davis), and her entourage of friends. Fortunately for them, Sarah Connor wants to help.

Though there are still many questions as to whether Carter, Schwarzenegger, and Cameron can revive the lacking IP, you can’t deny the trailer’s effectiveness. Tim Miller (Deadpool) steps behind the camera, infusing his style with haunting visuals and incredible special effects. Let’s hope that the narrative is equally as impressive. The last thing we need is another Rise of the Machines.

Terminator: Dark Fate fights its way into theaters November 1.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
