Terminator: Dark Fate hits cinemas

2 Mins read

The latest Terminator movie Dark Fate, directed by Tim Miller has premiered in UK’s cinemas. The long-awaited return of the Terminator saga is finally available for the audience on the big screen.

James Cameron and David Ellison are responsible for movie production, the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger will again play the leading role, and this time Linda Hamilton will be his co-star.

The movie received a lot of buzz, so fans are keeping their expectations and emotions high.

The film is a continuation of the Terminator 2: Judgment Day but at the storyline level is going to “ignore” the events that happened in the previous movies.

One of the film’s producers and the father of the original idea, James Cameron, decided to take this turn because he doesn’t want to use the elements that were introduced in the earlier iconic sci-fi series without his participation.

The action of the movie takes place 27 years after the events presented in the previous part. A modified Terminator Rev-9 is sent to Earth to kill Dani Ramos, Grace and their friends. Linda Hamilton and the first Terminator cyborg (Schwarzenegger) will help in the fight against Rev-9.

Cameron advises viewers to consider all the previous movies as a form of a “nightmare” or as an “alternative timeline”, which, due to the intricacies of time travel and the concept of the existence of alternative worlds, may be allowed to enter this universe.

Cameron gave the role of the director to Tim Miller, but he remained the originator of the plot of the new movie, so Terminator: Dark Fate is advertised as a reboot of the series, which will be the beginning of a completely separate trilogy. Whether there will be a follow-up to the story depends on the financial results of the latest film.

Young adults have a weakness for the world of Terminator, and they are always looking forward to a fresh, new take on the series. When it comes to Terminator: Dark Fate however, the expectations are much higher, people are waiting for film equally phenomenal as Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

At London College of Communication, which is home to film and television courses, students told us they like the trailer and they are positive in general, but hope and concerns come side by side.

“I was a little sceptical about Terminator: Dark Fate. The trailers were good but not amazing, I quite liked them, but I think what makes the biggest difference and creates the most excitement for me is Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger working together, said Vee, a media and communication student.

“I’m very excited about the new Terminator movie; I’m hoping to see some fantastic scenes of action and strong female characters on the big screen,” said Grace who is studying advertising.





Terminator: Dark Fate is out in cinemas from Wednesday, October 23, 2019.
