It’s official. Terminator: Dark Fate title has been confirmed and He’ll Be Back In November.
Confirmed news coming out from Tinseltown. The sixth instalment of the Terminator franchise has finally been given its official title and release date. Directed by Tim Miller and produced by original writer/director James Cameron, the new film has been given the title of ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’. Not a major surprise as it was reported by Cameron itself that it was the films working title during production but it seems to fit the franchise perfectly. The film will open around the world on November 1st.
Not much is known about the film at this point but it has been reported that the film will be a direct sequel to the first two Terminator films and totally disregard the other three films made after Terminator 2. And the film will go back to its R Rated roots instead of continuing with the toned down PG-13 films that have been made over the past 16 years.
Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton have once again returned to their roles as The Terminator and Sarah Conner respectively. The film will mark the first time the two principals have been together on screen since the second film back in 1991. Filling out the cast this time around is Mackenzie Davis as Grace, Natalia Reyes as Dani Ramos, Brett Azar as the T-800 And Gabriel Luna as another, as yet unknown Terminator among others.
The new film has been written by Josh Friedman, Billy Ray, Justine Rhodes and David S Goyer based from a story created by David Ellison and Tim Miller, based on the characters and timeline created by James Cameron.
The film will open directly against the reboot of Charlie’s Angels that is being directed by talented actress/writer/Director Elizabeth Banks. The film, starring Kristen Stewart, Naomi Scott and Ella Balinska as the eponymous female crime fighters should appeal to audiences if done with flair and style but it remains to be seen if it can overcome the cyborg assassins possible epic return to the form he showed in the 80s and early 90s, despite the high expectation of female-led films following on from Alita: Battle Angel and the current worldwide number one film, Captain Marvel.
Charlies Angels and Terminator: Dark Fate will release and lock horns on November 1st.
Let battle commence!
