Terminator Dark Fate: 9 Things We Should Know From The Trailer

Terminator Dark Fate: 10 Things We Should Know From The Trailer

After months of cast photos and speculation, the first trailer for the newest entry into the Terminator franchise has finally dropped and it's showcasing a lot of new faces as well as a few legends. Information has been coming out about the film in dribs and drabs ever since the proposed new trilogy of films (intended to be kickstarted by 2015's Terminator Genisys, before its disappointing box office results came in) was scrapped to make way for some reengineering.

The footage has calmed many fears, and reaffirmed a few bad expectations, that fans have been wondering about. Here’s 9 things we’ve learned from the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate.

Thinks We Should Know From Terminator Dark Fate


One of the reasons that many people cite for the Terminator franchise’s diminished cultural impact is the departure of writer and director James Cameron after the first sequel. The first two Terminator films were as much a vehicle for Cameron’s career as a director as they were for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career as an actor. The Terminator was the first success of a filmmaker who went on to create two of the biggest movies of all time.

Terminator: Dark Fate marks Cameron’s return to the world of Terminator, with both a producer credit and a story credit, after a nearly 30-year absence from the franchise. Cameron had gone on record to express some support for the franchise earlier, in marketing for Terminator Genisys, but the trailer for Dark Fate says it loud and proud - “...James Cameron returns.” Cameron isn’t just giving a thumbs up from the sidelines, he’s fully invested this time around.


Next to Cameron, the other main selling point of this particular Terminator reboot is the return of Linda Hamilton as the franchise’s legendary hero Sarah Connor. Hamilton bowed out of the franchise after the second film also, though her presence is felt strongly throughout all of the other films, with her character returning (albeit in an alternate, and much younger, form played by Emilia Clarke) in Terminator Genisys.

The most crucial piece of information that the trailer gives is that Sarah Connor is 100% there for the fight and she’s not taking prisoners. Racing into the action and skidding to a halt, she emerges from her truck blasting (and with the biggest gun she can carry) before blowing the new Terminator away with a rocket launcher. Hamilton is clearly not just there to give advice and Sarah Connor looks set to be a crucial part of the movie’s action.


Even after the loss of its leading lady and its creative driving force, the Terminator franchise soldiered onwards and it’s become quite clear that it would never have got this far without Arnold Schwarzenegger. He’s appeared in person, and as a main character, for all of the Terminator films except Terminator Salvation (where the digital likeness of his younger self appears on top of a new Terminator body in the finale) so, like Hamilton, fans had some questions about how he’d appear in this one.

Arnie isn’t in the trailer very much. There’s an action shot which may feature his character (it could be someone else) but it seems like he’s only got one shot in the trailer. We can, however, learn a lot from that shot. For one, it appears that Arnie is both back as an ally to Sarah Connor and appearing as his natural, older, self. What role he’ll play in the story is still unclear but, unless the producers wished to immediately repeat mistakes from the last misfire, his appearance implies that Arnie could be playing a human this time around.


The first voice we hear in the new trailer is that of Natalia Reyes, speaking as her character Daniella “Dani” Ramos. She describes her life before the inciting conflict of the film to be “nice” and “simple” and she’s clearly as in over her head as Sarah Connor was in the original Terminator. Her exact purpose in the film is still a mystery but the trailer makes it quite unequivocal that Dani Ramos is the target of the new Terminator while also the key to overall victory for humanity over the machines.

When asked why she cares what happens to Dani Ramos, Sarah Connor simply responds “Because I was her.” Does that mean that Dani is destined to give birth to a leader of the human resistance, the same way Sarah Connor was in the original film? Given how female-driven Dark Fate seems, it would be a tad antiquated to boil down even one of its female characters to purely being a baby-maker but there’s still room to be pleasantly surprised here.


A standout amongst the most baffling parts of Dark Fate, up until now, has been the means by which Mackenzie Davis' character fits into the new story and the trailer gives a ton of data to bite on. We see, directly off the bat, that Davis' character, Grace, is directly amidst the activity. She's securing Dani Ramos in the start of the trailer, and, how occasions are organized, it appears as though she's as of now carrying out the responsibility well before Sarah Connor appears on the scene.

Above all, however, we get a decent very close take a gander at her robotic upgrades and what they can do. She moves and battles like a Terminator however she likewise expressly expresses that she's human. Be that as it may, fans have seen Terminators that believe they're human previously. We likewise observe her taking out certain cops in her birthday suit (a great sight for enthusiasts of the Terminator establishment) which unequivocally suggests that she's been sent back as it was done in the good 'ol days to do her main goal previously.


This may be the producers holding their cards close to their chests (and, after the uproar surrounding a massive villain spoiler in the marketing for previous Terminator sequel, Genisys, who could blame them) but it doesn’t look like there’s going to be much more of a threat to the main characters outside of Gabriel Luna’s new Terminator.

This is, by no means, a bad thing. One of the aspects that made the original Terminator films so enjoyable was how streamlined the plots were. You had a killing machine, that killing machine had a target and that target had protectors. That was pretty much it. They’ve already streamlined the timeline (by erasing all of the events after Terminator 2: Judgement to clear the way for Dark Fate’s story) and a more straightforward plot couldn’t hurt either.


The loudest absence in the Dark Fate trailer would have to be John Connor’s. The original MacGuffin of all the Terminator films until this point, and the main character of several, is not only anywhere to be seen throughout the trailer - he’s never even loosely referenced.


While the trailer is obviously endeavoring to retain plot subtleties, it leaves in what may end up being a moderate spoiler. In the opening of the trailer, a move succession makes place on an expressway and the consequence of the rapid interest at its focal point is a close shave for both Mackenzie Davis' and Natalia Reyes' primary characters as a SUV rams into their truck and causes an enormous, red hot, blast. The issue is that there's obviously a character (that the enduring primary characters are demonstrated to be aligned with against the Terminator) still in the truck when it gets smashed.

Occasions appeared in the trailer seem to happen, generally, sequentially and he never shows up again. His face is, quite often, in part darkened at the same time, in light of the accessible cast data, this character is undoubtedly played by Scream Queens entertainer Diego Boneta. As Sarah Connor has all the earmarks of being appearing without precedent for the film at end of that scene's recording, it's sheltered to expect that his character doesn't last out the entire first demonstration of the film. Once more, that is not distinct. Quite possibly don't get your expectations up excessively high in case you're a Diego Boneta fan.


If the title wasn’t already enough of a giveaway, the trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate wants you to know for certain that the movie is going to be both figuratively and literally dark. As mournful choir singing, and ominous piano notes, usher in a serious-looking chase scene, Natalia Reyes’ Dani Ramos describes the situation as “a nightmare” and the color grading for the film, whilst not Suicide Squad dark, is noticeably lower than the overlit Terminator Genisys.

Of course, all of this is something that’s subject to change. One thing that stands out in all the gloom is the name of director Tim Miller, who is specifically referred to as the director of Deadpool, and it is fairly uncommon to see totally dour action films in a post-Avengers world. Right now, the film is clearly trying to drum up intrigue, that will generate a new fanbase to carry the franchise into the future, so the tone in the final cut could be very different.
