“Terminator: Dark Fate” will hit theaters this weekend and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton will bring some old school back to the franchise.
More than two decades have passed since Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton, “Dante’s Peak” and “Beauty and the Beast”) prevented Judgment Day, changed the future, and re-wrote the fate of the human race. Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes, “2091” and “Cumbia Ninja”) is living a simple life in Mexico City with her brother (Diego Boneta, “Rock of Ages” and “Scream Queens”) and father when a highly advanced and deadly new Terminator - a Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna, “Bernie” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) — travels back through time to hunt and kill her.
Dani’s survival depends on her joining forces with two warriors: Grace (Mackenzie Davis, “The Martian” and “Blade Runner 2049”), an enhanced super-soldier from the future, and a battle-hardened Sarah Connor.
As the Rev-9 ruthlessly destroys everything and everyone in its path on the hunt for Dani, the three are led to a T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger, “Terminator” and “Predator”) from Sarah’s past that may be their last best hope.
Tim Miller will take on the directing task that James Cameron did with the first two films in the franchise.
The films is rated R for violence throughout, language and brief nudity.
