Linda Hamilton returns to her ass-kicking action roots in the latest trailer for Paramount Pictures’ fall tentpole “Terminator: Dark Fate.” After playing Sarah Connor in James Cameron’s beloved “The Terminator” and groundbreaking “T2: Judgment Day,” Hamilton became an action-movie icon.
Smartly, the actress skipped out on the poorly reviewed sequels “Rise of the Machines,” “Salvation,” and “Genisys,” but fortunately “Dark Fate” is retconning the “Terminator” franchise by serving as a director sequel to 1991’s “Judgment Day.” Watch the latest trailer for “Dark Fate” below.
Speaking on why she didn’t participate in the last three “Terminator” films, Hamilton said, “They’re very forgettable, aren’t they? You start something and you’re invested in the franchise, but somehow the characters that you care about weren’t there. Too many people, too many story points. So I think we’ve done a good job of narrowing down the focus again so it will echo the first two films.”
Produced by James Cameron, the film releases November 1.
