Multi-generational Earth Rescue (?)

Terminator: Dark Fates reunites Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor), Arnold Schwarzenegger (The Terminator), and the film’s original director James Cameron in the Producer role. This time, Deadpool director Tim Miller guides the action and the David Goyer (Dark Knight), story.

The story centers around a half-human/half-robot (Mackenzie Davis) who is assigned to protect a young girl from a liquid metal Terminator (Gabriel Luna). The liquid metal terminator isn’t too different from the T-1000 played by Robert Patrick from T2. Hence, Sara Connor (Linda Hamilton) joins the fight. We also see Sara Connor meeting with a T-800/T-850 played by Arnold Schwarzenegger.

“It has been nearly 30 years since I last stepped into the shoes of Sarah Connor, a character who definitely changed my life,” she said. “And only a script, a story, a director like this could bring me back into this world — a perfect confluence of events. Once in a lifetime, or maybe twice, an event comes along that you cannot turn away from. And for me, this is that moment.”

The Terminator franchise has had a bumpy go at it. Three films were made without James Cameron’s watchful eye. This is the first film since the 1991 film Terminator 2: Judgement Day that will include Cameron’s creative guidance. The three films made between 1991 and now will have no role in Dark Fate’s continuity.

A couple things to note regarding the Terminator timeline: Although the first film was made in 1984, the events in T2 took place in 1995 (it was actually released in 1991), this was the first appearance of future Skynet resistance leader John Connor, as a teenager. (Skynet is the company that somewhat accidentally caused the machines to take over). The timeline can get confusing, and this newest installment will take place in 2022.

Both films consist of a cat and mouse road movie, where a Terminator from the future is sent to “terminate” a human, who is destined one day to hatch the resistance. The first film had Schwarzeneggar as the pro-Skynet Terminator hunting the mother of John Connor (who isn’t concieved yet) . Connor sends a human (from the future) named “Kyle Reese” to protect Sara Connor…and concieve himself. Yeah, I know.

The second film is about Skynet sending another Terminator, this time a liquid metal T-1000 to “terminate” the now conceived, born, and teenage John Connor. But, John Connor sends a reprogrammed T-800 (once again played Schwarzenegger) of his own, to protect himself.

So, with Skynet failing to ‘terminate” it’s targets in the first two movies, we are wondering who the Terminator is going after this time. In the teaser trailer we see a young girl, protected by her own Terminator. A relative of Kyle Reese? I don’t know. See movie for the answer… ;-t
