Can we all finally agree that there shouldn’t be any more Terminator movies? The latest film, Terminator: Dark Fate, wasn’t that bad, but it also wasn’t great, either. And it failed to find an audience to boot. That’s probably a sign that the world is done with the Terminator franchise, and one of the franchise’s biggest stars is fine with that. In fact, she’s ready to be done as well. In a new interview, Linda Hamilton, who returned to the series for Dark Fate, says she’s made peace with letting the series go.

Terminator: Dark Fate may not be an immediate hit at the box office, likely thanks to fans being gunshy about yet another sequel in the Terminator franchise potentially disappointing them again. But the movie has received a good amount of favorable reactions from critics, earning the movie a 70% on Rotten Tomatoes and an even more satisfied 84% audience score. That means there are probably some of you out there who want to bring Terminator: Dark Fate collectibles home, and both NECA and Chronicle Collectibles have you covered with action figures and a statue.

Linda Hamilton hasn’t appeared in a Terminator film since 1992’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day. That’s about to change with this year’s Terminator: Dark Fate, which will see Hamilton once again play the ass-kicking Sarah Connor. Getting Hamilton back is a big deal, and certainly makes Dark Fate look more interesting than all the other lackluster Terminator sequels. It was a big deal to Hamilton as well, and she took it seriously – the actress recently revealed she flat-out refused to say certain lines in the script that were intended to soften her character.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day seemed like it had a happy ending. Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) and John Connor (Edward Furlong) destroyed the materials that would have led to Cyberdyne creating a Terminator and eventually the artificial intelligence military system known as Skynet. But apparently changing the future will have drastic consequences, and a new Terminator: Dark Fate featurette shows Deadpool director Tim Miller is trying to bring the spirit of the first two Terminator movies to this sequel. But can he do it? Read More »
Ask a person to summarize the Terminator timeline, and you might just drive them insane enough to create a world-destroying AI technology. James Cameron’s first 1984 sci-fi/horror movie and its 1991 sequel, T2: Judgment Day, were straightforward enough action movies with some admittedly loose approaches to time travel. But things went downhill from there — both creatively and canonically — as sequels, spin-offs, and reboots fudged the timeline up even more.
But director Tim Miller promises all that will change with Terminator: Dark Fate. The upcoming Terminator sequel stands apart from the other films, Miller says, because the Terminator Dark Fate plot deals directly with the consequences of Sarah Connor’s (Linda Hamilton) critical action in T2.

Terminator: Dark Fate, the sixth movie in the sci-fi franchise, still has a lot of work to do if it’s going to win people over. Audiences have been burned by Terminator sequels so many times now that it’s going to take something special to get them to engage again. And though this will again feature the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger to one of his most iconic franchises, director Tim Miller (Deadpool) thinks he’s found that X factor in the film’s female characters.
Linda Hamilton is coming back to play Sarah Connor in live-action for the first time since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day (she did some voice work for Terminator Salvation), and Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire) is playing a new character who, according to Miller, will “scare the fuck out of” misogynists in the audience.
