Badass Comic-Con Featurette for Tim Miller's 'Terminator: Dark Fate'
"I hunt Terminators. You metal motherf*&ker!" Paramount has launched a badass new behind-the-scenes featurette for Terminator: Dark Fate, the big bad new Terminator movie taking us all the way back to James Cameron's original two movies. This promo is all about showing off how R-rated, intense, and action-packed this movie will be - it's relentless, they keep saying. It's a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day, but with all kinds of different characters including more Terminators. Linda Hamilton returns as the first Sarah Connor, and Arnold Schwarzenegger is also back again, along with Edward Furlong as the original John Connor. James Cameron is producing and is credited on the story - speaking in this video. The cast includes Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna as another Terminator, Natalia Reyes, Diego Boneta, Alicia Borrachero, Steven Cree, Tábata Cerezo, Brett Azar, & Claudia Trujillo. Lock & load folks. "It's R-rated, it's grim, it's gritty, it's fast, it's intense." I hope this is as good as they're promising us here.
Here's the new featurette (+ Japanese poster) for Tim Miller's Terminator: Dark Fate, from YouTube:
"Welcome to the day after Judgment Day." This sixth installment in the Terminator franchise is a direct sequel to The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, disregarding all other Terminator stories as occurring in alternate timelines. Terminator: Dark Fate is directed by American filmmaker Tim Miller, co-founder of Blur Studios, who went from VFX work to the director of the first Deadpool movie previously. The screenplay is written by Billy Ray, and Justin Rhodes. Based on a story by James Cameron, and David S. Goyer & Justin Rhodes. Produced by James Cameron and David Ellison of Skydance. Paramount will release Miller's Terminator: Dark Fate in theaters everywhere starting November 1st this fall. <Full trailer soon>
First words out of my mouth were, "Holy shit!"

Yes. This is some hearty hype.

I've got a question. Do robots age? I see that Linda Hamilton's character has aged because she is human, but does a T-800 Terminator...a robot...which is what Arnold's character is...age...hair that turns grey and a beard that does too?And why the beard? Ah....never mind....who cares? I liked Cameron's films, but if he isn't directing...which he isn't here...it simply will not be as good. Pretty simple. At least to me. It'll be serviceable maybe....mediocre for sure...but it won't have the shot selection and set-ups and tension and snap to the action sequences that Cameron's direction provides. He's extremely talented and unique in the way he directs. I know he has a story credit here and was an executive producer, but I hardly think he was on set most of the time. If at all. That makes all the difference in the world to me. Tim Miller directed this and he ain't no Cameron. Let's see. I hope to be pleasantly surprised.

The terminator itself does not age, beyond the normal breakdown any machine goes through. The skin tissues are all organic, and they do age.
Mark on Jul 18, 2019
Ah...I see...lol...but...are they? The skin tissue thing? Knowing Cameron there will be some kind of reasonable explanation as I'm not buying yours. Skin might be organic, but it has to have blood and cells furnishing it or replenishing it and no machine is going to do that.
thespiritbo on Jul 19, 2019
Sorry you are not buying Mark's explanation but yes, the original terminators, specifically the T800 series Arnold portrays is living tissue covering a metal endo-skeleton.
The skin, hair, eyeballs, etc function are a part of it's original design/purpose: Infiltration of human settlements and resistance bases. This was explained and covered extensively in the original movie. spoiler:

Thanks for the explanation. Still ain't buying it. My problem, I guess. What's with the redacted stuff? That was all having to do with years old movies, right? We still worried about years old stuff being spoiled for the 'spoiler crowd'? Say it ain't so!

I'm a sucker for a Terminator film. Is that a future scene as well in that clip, around the start of 1.15
Lewis on Jul 19, 2019
Looks awful! The T1000 is still a better terminator than this new one and the story adds nothing new to the franchise. Salvation was still the best Terminator film after the first 2 and is vastly underrated.
Cam Colt on Jul 19, 2019
Salvation was the best one because it showed the war with the machines the first two teased, and every other movie after just f-ing ignored. It's like the Star Wars prequels. Oh yeaaaah, everyone has been waiting 20 years to see the story of Dark Vader and him hunting the Jedis like Obi-Wan said. Then we got 2 3/4 movies of a whiny kid, then the f-ing Stormtroopers!!! just backstabbing Jedi, and a few shots of Darth Vader screaming cuz he realized he's just a fool who got played. Yeah. It's nice to talk about how someone is the most influential badass of their galaxy (Dark Vader/Starwars and John Conner/Terminator) but when you get a massive fanbase, 200 million and a few movies to showcase it... you better damn deliver. Ask Marvel & Thanos. When it came time to The Infinity War and Endgame, they gave us the badass they had been telling us about.
Akirakorn on Jul 19, 2019
Salvation was a huge missed opportunity to deliver what we all were waiting for for ages. It was a very disappointing sequel, but not an awful one. Genisys was awful though.
tarek on Jul 20, 2019
Genisys was so bad that Hyundai stopped making the Genesis soon after to distance itself from the movie. Fact.

Miller's enthusiasm is great, but will be cautiously optimistic heading into the theater.
DAVIDPD on Jul 19, 2019
Goddammit! They should carry along after 4(who was a decent movie)
