James Cameron is back, and he’s rebooting the Terminator franchise with the director of Deadpool.

Called Terminator: Dark Fate, the movie is set for an international release on November 1. Arnie is back as the T-800–he’s got a nice log cabin, it seems–and the movie carries on from Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Should be good fun. I still wish that Terminator 2 board game was a thing, but some more movies will do for now.


  • Wait, I’m confused. He’s rebooting the franchise but it picks up after the events already established in 1 and 2? Or does it retcon those and we join in at where 2 would end in the new canon? Or are we saying T3 and that other movie were just an alternate timeline that gets averted in the first 5 minutes?

    Interesting to see Tencent’s name up there. I still think of them as a mobile company. I also love the female Terminator look, a lot like a young Sarah Connor and vastly better than the one in T3.

    • This is a direct sequel to T2: Judgement Day. All the Terminator films released since then are completely ignored in this film. I’m guessing the only reason why Linda Hamilton came back was because James Cameron finally has the Terminator film rights back.

    • It’s not unusual for the first trailers to come out while they are still animating/polishing. So here’s hoping.

  • WHOAH!!! The cgi in those fight scenes are terrible. Are they using early 2000’s tech for this?

    Also I don’t get it. Why is it that every sequel of Terminator, the Terminator that comes back keeps being more and more advanced, yet in the story, they apparently stop Skynet or prevent it from being made every time? Now there is going to be THREE cyborgs? Maybe it is time to call it a day, the story is getting dumber then a Michael Bay Bayformers movie and the franchise died after Terminator 3 as it is.

    • I think the idea is lure people back with a sequel to 2 as that was the high point of the series. I’m trying to be optimistic and am hoping that James Cameron being on board means they have a good idea that needed to be told and it isn’t just flogging a dead horse 🙁

  • Oh yeah right … they’ve gone and made the female character into some kind of ‘warrior’ for the reboot just to make feminists happy …. oh. wait :\
