Terminator: Dark Fate gets a new poster and Director Tim Miller talks about the film


Linda Hamilton (“Sarah Connor”) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (“T-800”) return in their iconic roles inTerminator: Dark Fate, directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and produced by visionary filmmaker James Cameron and David Ellison.

Following the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: Dark Fate also stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta

Possible minor spoilers ahead.

Davis is playing the human-machine hybrid Grace while Luna is the new type of Terminator, a Rev 9, and his endoskeleton and exoskeleton can act independently. You can see the endoskeleton on the new poster below

Director Tim Miller talked to EW about the new characters.

[blockquote]There’s this new future because of what Sarah did at the end of Terminator 2, and it’s worse than ever, and that gives us the opportunity for these new characters. Gabriel comes from something that is not Skynet, but it’s like Skynet. And Mackenzie comes from something that Kyle Reese and the Resistance did.

I tried to keep Gabriel a bit grounded while still interesting; I feel his new weapons and abilities are right for our times but not so ridiculous that it just turns into a visual effects superfest. And the same with Mackenzie’s character — I really liked her origin story. We did an early writer’s room and Joe Abercrombie came up with her as this super-soldier from the future, but it comes at a cost to be one of these people. They’re the first people to die, they’re the shock troops who protect the rest of humanity, and her readiness to sacrifice is a really interesting way to come at a character.

It would be easy to go, ‘Okay, you’re going to get some woman who’s an ex-MMA fighter or all about fitness and fighting,’but I knew that she really had to connect. Because Sarah in a lot of ways is broken, and I knew that the audience would relate a lot to what had happened to humanity’s future, and as you’ll see in the film, the audience has to really feel for Grace by the end of it. And so I knew first and foremost, she had to be a great actor and Mackenzie is definitely that.


He also briefly mentioned Arnold Schwarzenegger.

[blockquote]I don’t think people will be ready for what Arnold has become either, because it’s very different.


Terminator: Dark Fate is coming to UK cinemas on 23rd October 2019.
