With the return of James Cameron as a production and co-writer, Will Terminator: Dark Fate become successful?
James Cameron’s Terminator (1984) and Terminator: Judgment Day (1991) are considered one of the best action films of all time. However, from the third episode entitled Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), the brand gradually went down when there was no longer a handful of “blockbuster prince” anymore. Terminator: Dark Fate – The Destroyer of Darkness not only marks the return of James Cameron but also the old cast who “stormed” the world 28 years ago.
According to James Cameron, Terminator: Dark Fate will be a direct sequel to Terminator: Judgment Day. Meanwhile, the events of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation (2009) and Terminator Genisys (2015) are in a different timeline. As the creator of this cult brand, James Cameron is more knowledgeable about Terminator than anyone. His return to the screenplay and production will be a guarantee of quality as well as a resounding success of the previous series.
And the biggest difference is that James brought Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor back. She was originally the protagonist of the first two Terminator missions to protect and teach her son John Connor to become the leader of the later resistance faction. It was also one of the most powerful big screen ladies in the 1990s, on par with Ellen Ripley of Alien.
Song, Sarah is again killed in part 3 in a confusing way and the version of Emilia Clarke in Terminator Genisys can not overcome the shadow of Linda Hamilton. The return of the actress born in 1956 will definitely make the fans of the brand extremely excited. Sarah’s strong, “charismatic” character is evident in the first trailer when she blows away a missile destroyer when she first appears.
In addition to Linda Hamilton, the destroyer of the legendary T-800 Arnold Schwarzenegger will also reunite the audience. The combination of the duo is also a promising highlight of the upcoming movie after the touching ending of Terminator: Judgment Day. Besides, the work also has the appearance of many new faces such as the half-man half-soldier Grace (Mackenzie Davis), the mysterious girl Dani (Natalia Reyes) and the new generation destroyer Rev-9 due to Gabriel Luna plays the role.
This new cast and character not only brings a youthful look to the 35-year-old brand, but also a content twist when Skynet is no longer targeting John or Sarah Connor, but also monitoring Dani. Her identity is a, why is Grace a half-human or half-powerful Rev-9, only questions answered when the movie opens in November.
According to James Cameron, Terminator: Dark Fate recreated the dark, suffocating atmosphere of the first two films. Extremely tolerant, intense and suspense is what the famous director described about the upcoming work. Indeed, later episodes are too much of an emotional element to lose the violent and continuous action of the Terminator. With the elimination of unrelated love stories, Terminator: Dark Fate will make viewers hold their breaths with battles, dramatic chases and no end.
And if there’s any doubt about the action of the film, don’t forget that being in the director position is Tim Miller, who used to play Deadpool (2016). The film is considered to have created a new standard for 18+ superhero movies. Surely he will bring a violent work with many fierce confrontations among the fierce killers.
