Linda Hamilton in Terminator: Dark Fate

Things We Saw Today: The Female-Led Terminator: Dark Fate Trailer Is Incredibly Badass

Recommended Videos

The upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate, starring Linda Hamilton and directed by Deadpool‘s Tim Miller, has an official trailer, and it kicks all kinds of ass.

There’s a lot of excitement here, including some absolutely brutal fight scenes and explosive action sequences, Arnold Schwarzenegger in what seems to be a training montage capacity, and Linda Hamilton being so effortlessly cool and tough in her return as Sarah Connor that I feel a little weak-kneed about it.

Linda Hamilton (“Sarah Connor”) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (“T-800”) return in their iconic roles in Terminator: Dark Fate, directed by Tim Miller (Deadpool) and produced by visionary filmmaker James Cameron and David Ellison. Following the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Terminator: Dark Fate also stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta.

As our Terminator enthusiast Chelsea Steiner covered in the past, Miller has said that his female-led film will scare misogynistic internet trolls, a sentiment that has only increased our anticipation for this film.

When talking about [Mackenzie] Davis’s female terminator character Grace, he said, “If you’re at all enlightened, she’ll play like gangbusters. If you’re a closet misogynist, she’ll scare the f–k out of you, because she’s tough and strong but very feminine. We did not trade certain gender traits for others; she’s just very strong, and that frightens some dudes. You can see online the responses to some of the early s–t that’s out there, trolls on the internet. I don’t give a f–k.”

Bless you, Tim Miller. And bless Linda Hamilton’s existence.
