San Diego Comi-Con 2019 is in full swing, and it is not disappointing. We’re only in Day One, and we already are getting all kinds of great information and insights. Some of the biggest insights have come from the upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate. The long awaited sequel to Terminator and T2: Judgement Day (and will ignore all the haphazard b.s. sequels that came after) brings fans back to the R rated action we loved from before. And, on top of the amazing news of Edward Furlong returning as John Connor, a new BTS vignette has been released showing more action and grit that made this series the classic it is today.
As fans, we have been disappointed so many times from the so called ‘sequels’ to this franchise. It’s hard to feel excited when you hear about yet another one. But, with James Cameron back as a producer, and a true fan at the helm in Tim Miller (director of the first Deadpool), things feel like they’re looking up. Add original cast members Linda Hamilton, Ed Furlong, and the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, on top of a brutal action premise, and it looks like fans are finally getting the sequel they deserve.
You also have some new additions that seem to fit right into the mold. Mackenzie Davis is the heroine of the film, and is more than human, it would seem. As for a villain, it is hard to top the T-1000 from Judgement Day. They may have pulled it off though with Gabriel Luna’s REV-9 model. A liquid metal exoskeleton a la T-1000 over a full functioning endoskeleton, this antagonist is basically multiple villains in one! How do you stop a machine with multiple abilities never seen before?!
The action looks out of this world, and it feels like the fun, aggressive film we’ve come to expect from this franchise. It’s just a shame that it took almost 30 years to get the sequel we deserve.
