Terminator: Dark Fate Footage Expected To Screen During SDCC 2019

On July 18, Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger will be in attendance for Paramount and Skydance’s Dark Fate panel at San Diego Comic-Con. As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the event will start at 11:00 a.m. PT in Hall H, and it will likely treat the presents with some fresh footage from the upcoming movie. Additionally, Terminator: Dark Fate director is expected to hit the stage, alongside stars Linda Hamilton, Natalia Reyes, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta.

A sequel to The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, the new film will ignore all the other movies in the franchise and picks up decades later as a new type of Terminator is sent back to terminate a new target.

Though much about the film remains unknown, key members of the series’ early entries return. Arnold Schwarzenegger comes back again, most likely as another robot with a license to kill. Linda Hamilton will reprise her role as Sarah Connor for the first time in nearly 30 years. James Cameron, the writer and director of the same two entries as well as Titanic (1997) and Avatar (2009) is also returning as a producer of the forthcoming film. The Dark Fate trailer is still vague in story details but offers enough to intrigue.

Terminator: Dark Fate has no shortage of new faces, however. Tim Miller, who is best known for directing Deadpool, is stepping behind the camera for the film. In addition, Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049), Natalia Reyes (Birds of Passage) and Gabriel Luna (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) join the cast. Davis and Luna appear to be playing new Terminators on different sides of the war against the machines.

Terminator: Dark Fate hits theaters on November 1.
