San Diego Comic-Con 2019: Arnold Schwarzenegger part of 'Terminator, Dark Fate' panel, exclusive new footage to be featured
The latest installment of the 'Terminator' franchise will be part of the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con this July. 'Terminator: Dark Fate' is set to treat fans with some exclusive information, new footage and movie trivia during the convention.
Another piece of news that would thrill fans is the presence of the cast including Arnold Schwarzenegger and his fellow co-stars Linda Hamilton, Natalia Reyes, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta, along with director Tim Miller (Deadpool). This appearance at SDCC will be Schwarzenegger's first in six years. He last appeared alongside actor Sylvester Stallone for a screening of 2013's "Escape Plan." He was also present during the muscle-powered presentation for 'The Expendables 2'.
At the moment, it is unknown if story writer/producer James Cameron, who also directed the first two films, 'The Terminator' (1984) and 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day' will be part of the panel. Dark Fate's panel will be held at Hall H July 18 at 11 a.m.
The sixth installment will see the return of Schwarzenegger as the famous T-800 and Linda Hamilton reprising her role as Sarah Connor. This will be the first time the duo will share screen space since 'Judgement Day'. Cameron’s 'Dark Fate' will pick up after the events of 'Judgment Day'.
Paramount's logline about the movie reads: "27 years after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, a new, modified liquid metal Terminator (Gabriel Luna) is sent from the future by Skynet in order to terminate Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), a hybrid cyborg human (Mackenzie Davis), and her friends. Sarah Connor comes to their aid, as well as the original Terminator, for a fight for the future."
This will be the second time a female actor will play a cyborg in the 'Terminator' franchise. Previously, Kristanna Loken played T-X, the antagonist cyborg from the future sent to kill John Connor (Nick Stahl) in 'Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines'.
You can watch the trailer for 'Terminator: Dark Fate' below:
There are quite a few burning questions that need to be answered, starting off with John Connor's absence in the trailer. The new Terminator played by Gabriel Luna is unlike any destroyer robots fans have seen before. The trailer shows the new enemy appears to be either possess the liquid metal abilities of Terminator 2's T-1000 or some sort of unrevealed technology. In any case, it allows the Terminator to duplicate himself. We'll have to wait to see what other abilities it has.
These, along with a plethora of questions will hopefully see some answers during the panel.
'Terminator: Dark Fate' arrives in theaters November 1.
