Paramount Pictures is showing off a new official trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate starring original Terminator stars Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The new entry in the blockbuster sci-fi franchise asks fans to forget the events of any of its films after Terminator 2: Judgment Day. “We pick up the characters that we knew from Terminator 2 and carry them forward,” explained James Cameron who returned as a hands-on producer for Dark Fate.
The studio also released a new poster featuring the cast.
In addition to Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, the cast includes Natalia Reyes (Birds of Passage, Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas), Mackenzie Davis (Halt and Catch Fire, Blade Runner 2049), Diego Boneta (Scream Queens, Monster Party), and Gabriel Luna (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Wicked City).
Deadpool‘s Tim Miller directed and David Goyer (the Dark Knight trilogy), Justin Rhodes, and Billy Ray wrote the screenplay from a story by Goyer, Rhodes, James Cameron, Charles Eglee, and Josh Friedman. Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Edward Cheng, Tim Miller, John J. Kelly, Bonnie Curtis, and Julie Lynn served as executive producers, with James Cameron and David Ellison producing.
The franchise kicked off with The Terminator in 1984, followed by Terminator 2: Judgment Day in 1991. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines arrived in 2003, Terminator Salvation opened in theaters in 2009, and the most recent entry, Terminator Genisys, was released in 2015.
James Cameron directed the first and second Terminator films, with Jonathan Mostow (U-571) taking over the reins for Terminator 3. McG (Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle) took on the task of directing Terminator Salvation and Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) was at the helm of Terminator Genisys.
Terminator: Dark Fate is set to open in theaters on November 1, 2019.
Paramount hasn’t yet released a detailed synopsis for the film. The best they’ve done so far is to tease: “Welcome to the day after #JudgmentDay.”
