What To Expect From Terminator: Dark Fate?


Since 1991, The creator of Terminator franchise kept himself away from direct involvement in the production of the sequels. After all these years he is bringing us a direct sequel to the Terminator: Judgement Day, which should be enough to sell the tickets in billions. But, James is never about the money; he is about the love of cinema and craft.

Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Edward Furlong are teaming up again to save the world from the imminent apocalypse inflicted by Skynet. A new model of the liquid metal terminator is travelling time to kill someone; this time it is not John Connor; it is Dani Ramos. A hybrid cyborg human (Mackenzie Davis), and Sarah Connor are the shield between life and death for Dani. The night takes shape as they seek help from the old T-800 (Arnold).

What to expect from the film? The plotline, the action sequences, and the intensity will have a whole new level as the story is developed by James Cameron and David S. Goyer (The scriptwriter of The Dark Knight). The film will be directed by Tim Miller, who directed Deadpool. When such visionary filmmakers conjoin on a project, they mean business.

As I can recall, Terminator: Judgement Day was one of the most successful sequels of all time. It changed the status quo of science fiction action films. The other films in the franchise were not direct sequels; they happen to occur in different timelines. Frankly, they were not as good as the first two films, but I am convinced that this movie will lift the bar of cinema, as a James Camron movie always does.
