Warner Bros. Pictures has released a few new photos from director Tim Miller’s “Terminator: Dark Fate” ahead of its opening later this Fall.
The photos appeared in Total Film (via Games Radar) and, whilst speaking to that outlet, producer Bonnie Curtis re-affirms the new film’s sequel status: “There was the first movie. Then there was the second movie. Then, after about 27 years, it’s our movie!. That’s bound to come as a relief…unless you loved Salvation and Genisys.”
Meanwhile, Miller was asked about how the franchise has struggled to find an audience in recent years. He offers his explanation as to why that is:
“I think the brand has been tainted a little bit. I don’t want to disparage the work of any of those movies, and some of them were interesting, but I feel like they just played in the world of The Terminator – it was essentially a different thing. T2 was just one of those events that was a [frick]ing revelation. It’s one of those films that everyone remembers what they were doing when they first saw it. I still don’t think I realise what I’m doing trying to follow that up.”
The new film sees Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 (“Carl”) joined by Mackenzie Davis as machine/human hybrid Grace, and Natalya Reyes as the young women she’s assigned to protect. The four will have to put their differences aside to fight the new REV-9 (Gabriel Luna).
“Terminator: Dark Fate” opens in cinemas on November 1st 2019.
