Paramount has released a new trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate, director Tim Miller‘s direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day. The film sees the return of Linda Hamilton to the franchise as Sarah Connor along with Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s everpresent title machine. The two Terminator OGs are joined by newcomers Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Diego Boneta, and Gabriel Luna.
Dark Fate welcomes back Hamilton in her third-on-screen role (plus a voice-only appearance in Terminator Salvation) as Sarah Connor and the sixth (more or less) on-screen appearance for Schwarzenegger as the title terror-turned-hero of the rebellion against the machines. This film, however, will ignore the third through fifth films in the series and pick up after James Cameron‘s Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
This trailer is actually pretty great, and strikes the perfect tone. It’s different enough to not feel like a rehash—Davis is in the Kyle Reese role, but she’s an “enhanced human,” and the person they’re tasked with protecting doesn’t seem to be related to the Connors in any way—but there are also some nice nods to the franchise as a whole, including a perfect twist on the “I’ll be back” line. I’m also incredibly curious to see how the relationship between Sarah and Schwarzenegger’s character develops.
Check out the new Terminator: Dark Fate trailer below. The film opens in theaters on November 1, 2019.
