‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ trailer shows the return of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor

Queen Letizia attends ‘Exceptional Women, the value of an opportunity’

Even though I gossip professionally, I literally blank out on so many entertainment/upcoming movie stories. I think I heard a while ago that James Cameron was producing yet another Terminator film and that Linda Hamilton was coming back to the franchise and I immediately forgot it? And then when I saw this trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate I was surprised anew, yet not shocked. Linda Hamilton is back as Sarah Connor and I still don’t understand the timeline AT ALL. Where does this film fit in the main Terminator timeline? I think it’s supposed to fit between T2 and T3? Because in T3 (Rise of the Machines), isn’t Sarah Connor already dead? Or is this an alternate timeline? Why do I care so much? IDK. Anyway, enjoy:

First of all, I like that Linday Hamilton’s Sarah Connor looks ragged. She looks every year of her 62 years. She looks like she’s been running and preparing for the apocalypse for decades. Second of all, the young female “protective” Terminator was so familiar to me but I couldn’t place her – that’s Mackenzie Davis, best known to me as the co-lead in Tully (which is an underrated film). She was also in Halt and Catch Fire, a show I didn’t watch.

As for Arnold coming back to this franchise… I mean, the man can still take a drop kick and not even move. Obviously, he’s still up for it. And the other Terminator models… I just don’t get the plot. At all. Does this timeline have nothing to do with any of the other Terminator movies? Damn.

    She’s pretty badass.

  2. Lady D says:

    She looks absolutely amazing. Cannot believe she is 62.

  3. Lynne says:

    Refreshing to see a woman of 62 look rl 62, not Hollywood plastic 62.

    • Lauren II says:

      Linda is a badass. She is James Cameron’s ex-wife. Glad to see her back.

    • lucy2 says:

      Yes – and to be getting an action movie role. Kick ass Linda!

    • Elizabeth1992 says:

      @ Lynne : I totally agree. I saw Mimi Rogers on NCIS : Los Angeles a few weeks ago and she looked great – as in “I don’t look 30 anymore and I’m f**king okay with that” great . If she had looked fake young, she would never have been as convincing and menacing as she was! And Linda Hamilton proves the truth that you can’t be a bad ass if you can’t move your face.

    I enjoy the Terminator movies but I really don’t understand them, lol. I’m not good with time travel plots in general. the first two I get, its after those that I sort of stopped trying to figure out the plot and whats happening and when and just enjoy the ride.

    I consider THIS…my BIRTHDAY PRESENT FROM HOLLYWOOD!

  6. LMB213 says:

    Funny her pic is right next to Kris Jenner on the home page. That’s quite a contrast, natural 62 year old bad ass who versus the very plastic looking 60 something.

  7. Lisa says:

    Glad to see Linda H back in the franchise. She looks great.

  8. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Awesome sauce.

  9. Mia4s says:

    Linda looks great but FFS stop beating a dead horse. This is the fourth sequel to T2 and looks like the exact. same. thing!! Some stories are just stories, not sagas. I was bored 10 seconds in.

  10. Nikki says:

    I’m so excited to see a movie that features a woman over 50 as a badass! Normally we are completely invisible, unless we are the dotty old eccentric, the nasty witch, or the extra in a crowd scene. I get SO aggravated that in movies men can have gray hair, but their wives must be blonde. The “Fast And Furious” type of movies are the absolute worst for including older women; once you’re not ovulating, you disappear completely!

  11. Incredulous says:

    That is some fantastic “Takes zero shit” Linda is exuding.

  12. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I loved Halt and Catch Fire. Mackenzie looks AMAZING in that photo. Now I kind of want to see this

  13. ariel says:

    If I remember correctly from reading….something, yes, they are pretending all movies after T2 did not happen.

    Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines with Nick Stahl and Claire Danes- gone
    Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles TV show (which I LOVED)- gone
    Terminator: Salvation with Christian Bale- gone
    Terminator Genisys with the Mother of Dragons (which was really hard to follow)- gone

    • Mia4s says:

      Yep and this one will likely be “gone” shortly after too. No wait, they really mean it this time. 😂

      Funny aside: the website where I first saw the trailer was out they wrote that “Diego Luna” plays the Terminator…????. Ummm, clearly not. But it turns out a number of websites have that mistake. I feel bad for the actual guy (I looked it up: Gabriel Luna, no relation) who is having his big break attributed to an established actor. But I’m also laughing at the thought of Diego Luna on the Cannes red carpet this weekend thinking “Why the f**k do people keep asking me about Terminator 6? Why would I care?”

  14. Venus says:

    Linda Hamilton does not look remotely ragged. She looks hot AF.

  15. H says:

    According to all the articles I’ve read this movie is only taking into account T1 and T2. All other movies are on an alternate timeline. This movie occurs after Sarah and John Connor stopped Judgement Day in T2. My question is we see Sarah but where is John?

    I can’t wait for this movie The Terminator franchise is one of my favorite all-time sci-fi movies.

  16. LaraK says:

    I miss the Sarah Connor Chronicles TV show! That cliff hanger ending just broke my heart. Wish they would do a movie to continue that story!

  17. Sean says:

    I love the original Terminator. I love its atmosphere and how it’s basically a horror film disguised as an action/scifi movie. T2 is one of the greatest cinematic rollercoasters I’ve ever seen.

    However, I no longer care about the series at this point.

  18. SM says:

    Who cares, it’s Linda. While all the girls around were crashing on Pitt and Dicaprio, I got to watch Terminator and I wanted to be Linda.

  19. Dylan says:

    I’m 61-years-old and I wanted to look like her then and I still do now! I recall the much earlier movie as being the first time we saw a woman who really kicked ass and was buff, not plastic. And those sunglasses!

  20. icem says:

    Linda looks and sounds amazing in the trailer. But this franchise is over and done with. The first one was the best (had a good love story too) and second was kind of entertaining. The sequenls just have so many plot holes. For example, why would a shapeshifting terminator use a spear? Just shape yourself a bullet and gun and off we go, target neutralised.

    • H says:

      They explained terminators cannot morph into things that have moving parts like a gun or a bomb. So swords and stabby things are ok.

  21. SKF says:

    I LOVE that she is back! I welcome any lead role for a woman, and this is a lead role for a strong, capable, intelligent, shades-of-grey, woman-of-a-certain-age. I love it! Linda Hamilton is incredible. I will never forget seeing her in T2 as a little girl and just being SO impressed! This is the only Terminator movie that has excited me since then. I saw the one with Nick Stahl (great actor but soooo miscast) and I saw the one with Bale and Sam Worthington (that one was decent). I didn’t see the show or the Emilia Clarke one. They were all missing the key ingredient that made the first two so good: Linda! The story was never as interesting when it was focused on John Conner as when it was focused on her. This is great and I will definitely see it!

  22. Ann says:

    The terminator needs to go back in time and do something about the Trump family.

  23. Paul Ó Dubhthaigh says:

    Now we just need a cross-over Terminator-Aliens movie with Linda Hamilton and Sigourney Weaver!

      My brain stuttered when I read this. This HAS to happen! YA HEAR THAT HOLLYWOOD?!?
