Sarah Connor in Terminator Dark Fate

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.

Yesterday, James “Still Making Those Avatar Sequels” Cameron accidentally (?) revealed that Edward Furlong was coming back as John Connor in Terminator: Dark Fate. This news hadn’t been revealed before, and it caught all of us completely off guard. So what’s the deal? Was Cameron correct? Was he just having a bit of fun? Or has the strain of making back-to-back Avatar films broken his brain? Some new details have surfaced, revealing that Cameron was mostly telling the truth – with a catch.

Teminator Dark Fate Featurette

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 »

Terminator Dark Fate Photos

The Terminator franchise has been in a rocky place for a few decades, so director Tim Miller (Deadpool) and producer James Cameron need you to do one thing before you see Terminator: Dark Fate – pretend the last couple of sequels don’t exist. Literally. Their new film not only brings back Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger as that famous killer cyborg, it is a direct follow-up to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, ignoring the three other films that followed entirely.

But is that enough to get audiences on board? They brought the film to Comic-Con to find out. Here’s what we learned.

Edward Furlong in Terminator Dark Fate

During the San Diego Comic-Con panel for Terminator: Dark Fate, James Cameron popped-in via video and offhandedly dropped a piece of info we hadn’t heard before: Edward Furlong is returning to the franchise for the first time since Terminator 2. Furlong played the young John Connor in that film, and while the return of Terminator stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton was well-known, Furlong’s return is a bit of a surprise. More on Edward Furlong in Terminator Dark Fate below.

T-800 in Terminator Dark Fate

Terminator: Dark Fate hopes to hit the reset switch on the uneven Terminator franchise. Terminator creator James Cameron is involved with the series again for the first time since Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and this new movie ignores every sequel after that. As a result, a whole new timeline has been set up in the world of the films – and that means new Terminators are afoot as well. Director Tim Miller dropped some info regarding the new Terminators in a recent interview, and also teased that Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s famous T-800 is “very different” than what audiences are used to.

terminator dark fate plot

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.

It was the question on everyone’s lips after the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate hit: Where is John Connor? The prophesied leader of the resistance against a war against Skynet and the savior of the world is seemingly nowhere to be seen in the newest Terminator film, despite the return of familiar franchise faces Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the T-800 cyborg.

But producer and franchise creator James Cameron assures that a connection between Terminator: Dark Fate and John Connor still exists. In fact, despite the future resistance leader’s notable non-appearance, Terminator: Dark Fate will be a continuation of John Connor’s story.
