1. A Promising Trailer

After the creative failure of T3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation, and Terminator: Genisys, fans of the franchise were pretty certain that the franchise was good and dead. Sure, the first two films are iconic, but perhaps it was best just to leave it alone.

And then the trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate came out. Bringing back Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Dark Fate looks absolutely awesome. Can we trust again?

2. Ignoring The Canon

While at the Son of Monsterpalooza convention in Burbank for a Terminator 2 reunion panel, makeup designer Bill Corso explained that Dark Fate was "the true Terminator 3."

"Our movie begins right after T2. So I highly suggest everybody in this room run to the theater. Do not miss this movie."

Now, T2 ended with Sarah and John Connor blowing up Cyberdyne Systems to prevent the creation of more terminators after they defeated the T-1000. Director Tim Miller has been saying that Dark Fate deals with the aftermath of T2, so we'll see how immediately the film kicks off. Will we be seeing the de-aging tech that has become so popular lately?

3. What To Expect

Either way, Corso was as skeptical as any other Terminator fan, but Miller, who worked with Corso on Deadpool, convinced him to come aboard once again.

"When I got a call from Tim Miller who I’d done Deadpool with and Tim said, ‘I’m going to do a new Terminator movie’ I was like why? It’s been done so well, you can’t possibly do anything better than that. I couldn’t ever improve upon what Stan Winston has done. He says, ‘I’ll give you three reasons to do it. One, you’re family and you have to do it. Two, Linda Hamilton’s back as Sarah Connor and three, James Cameron is involved in writing and making sure that this movie is going to be amazing."

Dare we hope that this movie will be awesome? Consider us there on opening day November 1.
