Terminator: Dark Fate director talks Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 and sequel “misfires”

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton are set to reunite on screen for the first time since Terminator 2: Judgment Day this November with the release of Terminator: Dark Fate, a direct sequel to the 1991 action classic from director Tim Miller (Deadpool) and produced by the series’ creator James Cameron.

While Dark Fate marks Hamilton’s first outing as Sarah Connor since T2, Arnie has been an ever present in the series (assuming you include his brief CG cameo in Terminator Salvation). However, according to Miller, this sixth instalment will see a fresh approach to the T-800, offering up something different than what we’ve seen in previous films:

“He looks different, and he is different,” Miller told Total Film. “It’s an interesting way to portray him. He’s just so iconic, but it’s something we haven’t seen in any of the other films. I personally think that

‘The Longest Day in Chang’an’ Is the Latest Chinese Hit to Fly Under America’s Radar

The action-packed web series “The Longest Day in Chang’an” has taken the Chinese internet by storm, but American audiences shouldn’t feel guilty if this is the first they’re hearing of it. It turns out that even one of the summer’s most successful series overseas can’t find a stateside foothold among fans when Western media elects to almost completely ignore it.

“The Longest Day in Chang’an” is a period drama that takes place during the cultural height of the Tang Dynasty that follows the head of Chang’an’s anti-terror department and a detective-turned-prisoner, who must work together to stop a mysterious army that has infiltrated the empire’s capital. The series has been a smash hit in China and the Western viewers that have seen it — the series is streaming on Amazon Prime Video — are similarly hooked, if the effusive user scores on Prime

Terminator: Dark Fate Footage Breakdown at Sdcc 2019

David Crow Jul 18, 2019

Here's what we thought about the Terminator: Dark Fate footage shown at Sdcc 2019.

With a subtitle like “Dark Fate,” the next Terminator movie seemed determined to pledge the sixth installment would be of stronger stuff than the several failed PG-13 soft-reboots the series has endured in the last decade. Now that promise appears more than met during the Terminator: Dark Fate Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con.

As a panel punctuated by one F-bomb after another by director Tim Miller—who lost $20 to star Arnold Schwarzenegger due to saying “fuck” more than five times during the presentation—the biggest news of the event is that, yes, Terminator: Dark Fate will be rated R. “The DNA of Terminator is an R-rated fucking movie,” Miller says. Hence shooting many scenes with alternate, abrasive language. But it is more than a potty mouth gleaned in the Terminator: Dark Fate

Edward Furlong Returns as John Connor in Upcoming R-rated ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’

Edward Furlong Returns as John Connor in Upcoming R-rated ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’
Arnold Schwarzenegger isn’t the only one who will be back. Edward Furlong will be reprising his role as John Connor in the upcoming “Terminator: Dark Fate,” director Tim Miller announced during the first panel in Hall H at this year’s Comic-Con.

“Terminator” producer James Cameron kicked off the panel remotely via a livestream from the set of the “Avatar” sequels—which are still definitely happening—and noted that fans loved older “Terminator” characters such as Sarah Connor and wanted to know how they reacted to the events of the earlier films.

Terminator: Dark Fate” will take place 27 years after “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” and seeks to answer that question. Furlong is joined by franchise veteran Linda Hamilton, who portrayed Sarah Connor, John’s mother, in the first two films. Miller (“Deadpool”) said the film will show Sarah Connor dealing with the consequences of her actions in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day,

Terminator: Dark Fate Creates a New Future for the Franchise

Don Kaye Jul 16, 2019

They're back! Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton reunite for Terminator: Dark Fate, and we've got the inside story.

If there is any film franchise potentially in need of hitting the reset button, it’s the Terminator series. Launched back in 1984 with The Terminator, a low-budget cult classic sci-fi thriller, and continued in 1991 with Terminator 2: Judgment Day, one of the most spectacular and groundbreaking action blockbusters of all time, the franchise sent itself down several different and twisting narrative roads over the course of three more movies and an acclaimed but short-lived TV show.

But now a new film, Terminator: Dark Fate (out Nov. 1), is taking a different tack. The story threads pursued in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation, and Terminator Genisys have been jettisoned in favor of a direct sequel to writer/director James Cameron’s first two films. The contorted continuity that plagued the later entries is,

Games of Thrones’ Lena Headey to Star in Showtime Pilot Rita

Joseph Baxter Jun 27, 2019

Fresh off Game of Thrones, Lena Headey is set to star in Rita, a subversive Showtime comedy pilot.

Lena Headey’s eight years in the role of the imperious, calculatingly cruel, shallow-end-of-the-gene-pool-fishing Cersei Lannister may seem to distance the actress from the concept of comedy, but that, indeed, is what the former Game of Thrones star has just procured, with a new TV pilot, with Showtime, called Rita.

Showtime has announced its pilot order for Rita, an adaptation of the 2012-2017 Danish series of the same name, in which Lena Headey will star as its title character, who’s described as “a headstrong, unconventional teacher and single mother who takes on every kind of authority – as well as her family – in a messy and unfiltered way.” Danish actress Mille Dinesen played the role in the original series.

Potential spoilers as alleged Terminator: Dark Fate plot details surface online

Although the character was absent from the first trailer, producer James Cameron subsequently confirmed that Terminator: Dark Fate will continue the story of John Connor, and now some potential plot details have surfaced online which may explain how the future leader of the Resistance factors into the new sequel.

The plot rumours come by way of alleged test screenings, which reveal that the movie begins shortly after Terminator 2: Judgment Day, with Skynet having been defeated. However, a new threat called Legion rises and sends a Terminator back to kill John. Fast-forward to the present, and Natalia ReyesDani Ramos – now mankind’s last hope – also becomes a target for Legion and the new Rev-9 Terminator (Diego Luna). Fortunately, the Resistance send back Mackenzie Davis’ Grace to protect her alongside Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor.

Now, none of this is confirmed at present, but it certainly sounds plausible, particularly after

Arnold Schwarzenegger confirms that he’s playing a Terminator in Dark Fate

This week Paramount Pictures gave us our first look at Terminator: Dark Fate, the upcoming reboot-sequel from director Tim Miller and producer James Cameron, which is set to serve as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, as well as reuniting cast members Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton for the first time since the 1991 movie.

If you only watched the trailer and not the accompanying behind-the-scenes video, you may have been left scratching your head with regards to Arnold’s role. He was only featured in a single shot, and it wasn’t clear whether his character was human (as has been heavily rumoured) or a Terminator.

Well, posting as part of a Reddit Q&A following the release of the trailer, Schwarzenegger himself has cleared up any confusion, stating that: “I’m a cybernetic organism. Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton.”

The Flickering Myth Reaction to the Terminator: Dark Fate trailer

The Flickering Myth writing team share their thoughts on the Terminator: Dark Fate trailer…

After failing to reignite the franchise with 2015’s soft reboot Terminator Genisys, Paramount Pictures is going back to the Terminator well once more this year with the sixth entry in the series, Terminator: Dark Fate.

With Linda Hamilton and James Cameron back alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger for the first time since Terminator 2: Judgment Day in what is a direct sequel to the 1991 classic (not to mention the inclusion of Deadpool helmer Tim Miller) there’s been optimism that Dark Fate may finally deliver a follow-up worthy of the first two movies.

Well, we got our first look at Dark Fate this week, so is the optimism still there after the release of the first trailer? Or could we be heading for another Rise of the Machines / Salvation / Genisys? Here’s what our writers made of the trailer,

James Cameron Confirms R-Rating For Terminator: Dark Fate

The latest installment in the iconic Terminator franchise may end up being even darker than the title suggests. Shortly after the release of the movie’s new trailer, Terminator: Dark Fate has been confirmed by producer James Cameron to be rated R.

This is definitely a return to form for the action-packed science fiction series, of which only the first three films shared this adult rating. Terminator Salvation and Terminator Genisys, the fourth and fifth entries respectively, were both released as PG-13 flicks as an attempt to draw in a wider audience. The strategy ultimately failed though when neither movie performed as well as anticipated at the box office.

Cameron is now taking the same route the Halloween franchise did last year by forgetting all of the poorly received sequels and simply picking up the story from the last time it resonated. Terminator: Dark Fate will be a direct follow-up

‘Star Wars’ Plans ‘Knights of the Old Republic’ Film Trilogy With First Female Writer Since 1980 — Report

It looks like the “Star Wars” film franchise following the release of “The Rise of Skywalker” later this year is slowly coming into focus. According to a new report from BuzzFeed, Lucasfilm is gearing up for a potential new trilogy based on the video game series “Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic” that started in 2003. Sources close to the studio say Laeta Kalogridis is finishing the script for the first movie after coming on board the project in spring 2018.

Lucasfilm’s hiring of Kalogridis is a historic one for the “Star Wars” movie franchise as no sole female screenwriter has ever been behind a “Star Wars” script. The only credited female writer in the “Star Wars” movie universe is Leigh Brackett, who shared a credit with Lawrence Kasdan on 1980’s “The Empire Strikes Back.” Since then, only men have written “Star Wars” movies and the franchise has come under

Knights Of The Old Republic Trilogy Officially In Development At Lucasfilm

Though we’re still several months away from closing out the Skywalker Saga with The Rise of Skywalker, Lucasfilm is already looking towards the future and tonight, it’s been confirmed that they’re indeed working on a movie based on Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic.

It’s been a long, long time since EA and BioWare first launched the cult RPG video game and over the years, we’ve seen two more additions added to the Kotor universe in the form of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords and Mmo spinoff, Star Wars: The Old Republic. However, despite intense demand from fans, we’ve still never seen a proper film or TV adaptation.

That’s all about to change, though, as the studio’s hired Laeta Kalogridis to pen a script for a Knights of the Old Republic movie. The news comes from BuzzFeed,

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’: Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger Return in First Trailer

  • Variety
The Resistance’s war against Skynet rages on with the sixth installment of the “Terminator” series, “Terminator: Dark Fate.” The first trailer for the latest movie dropped on Thursday.

The clip opens with two franchise newcomers, Mackenzie Davis and Natalia Reyes, as they’re being pursued by a Terminator (Gabriel Luna), one that seems to have some particularly intimidating new abilities. Just as the menacing robot is about to close in on them, Linda Hamilton, returning from the first two movies, returns as Sarah Connor, shooting him down without so much as breaking a sweat.

Later, we get some more clarity. Davis’ character is a Terminator (though she tells Sarah Connor that she’s human) who’s protecting Reyes, seemingly taking over Arnold Schwarzenegger’s role from the first two installments. Speaking of which, Connor leads them to her old cyborg friend, with Schwarzenegger appearing in a secluded cabin in the woods.

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ First Trailer: Linda Hamilton Brings Sarah Connor Back With a Vengeance

‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ First Trailer: Linda Hamilton Brings Sarah Connor Back With a Vengeance
Linda Hamilton returns to her ass-kicking action roots in the first trailer for Paramount’s fall tentpole “Terminator: Dark Fate.” Hamilton became an icon of the genre after playing Sarah Connor in James Cameron’s beloved “The Terminator” and “T2: Judgment Day.” The actress skipped out on the poorly reviewed sequels, but fortunately “Dark Fate” is retconning the “Terminator” franchise by serving as a director sequel to “Judgment Day.”

Terminator: Dark Fate” stars Hamilton opposite franchise newcomers Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta. Despite fresh blood, the film’s biggest selling point is the reunion between original “Terminator” stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Hamilton. The franchise’s creator James Cameron is also back in a producing role, although he was heavily involved with the film’s making and story idea. “Deadpool” filmmaker Tim Miller is serving as director.

Hamilton appeared at CinemaCon last month to promote “Dark
