The trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate has been released and it looks as though the sequel has erased all the problems that plagued the last three films in the franchise.
One month after new footage was unveiled at Comic-Con, Paramount Pictures has delivered a new extended look at the film that’s been directed by Dead pool’s Tim Miller.
James Cameron, director of the original two Terminator films, serves as a producer of the new one and has made no secret of the fact that it will follow on directly from 1991’s T2: Judgement Day.
In an interview with Deadline, Cameron confirmed the film will ignore the events of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), Terminator: Salvation (2019) and Terminator: Genisys (2015).
He also revealed he revisited these films in an attempt to avoid the errors that made them critical and commercial flops.
“One of the things that seemed obvious from looking at the films that came along later was that we would need to get everything back to the basics and that we would need to avoid the mistakes of making things overly complex – and that we needed to avoid stories that jumps around in time and one that goes backward and forward in time,” he said.
Terminator: Dark Fate, which reunites Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, will be released in cinemas on 23 October this year.
