The official “Terminator: Dark Fate” trailer released on Thursday morning, teasing the next installment in the long-running franchise that is hitting theaters on November 1, 2019. Tim Miller directed the movie, produced by James Cameron and David Ellison.
The new installment will mix classic characters and new ones, featuring Linda Hamilton, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta. Paramount Pictures released the video on social media adding, “Welcome to the day after Judgment Day.”
“Terminator: Dark Fate” is opening against the animated movie “Arctic Dogs,” giving little ones something to see that isn’t deadly cyborgs, and the crime drama “Motherless Brooklyn.” It will be interesting to see how “Terminator: Dark Fate” and “Motherless Brooklyn” stack up against each other.
Edward Norton wrote and directed “Motherless Brooklyn;” which features an all-star cast including Bruce Willis, Willem Dafoe, Edward Norton, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin, Bobby Cannavale, Leslie Mann, Ethan Suplee, Fisher Stevens, Dallas Roberts, Michael K. Williams, and Cherry Jones. We will have to wait until November to see if moviegoers choose an action movie over a thriller.
Both films are looking to win their weekend, since “Doctor Sleep,” the rom-com “Last Christmas,” “Midway,” and “Sonic the Hedgehog” are releasing in theaters the following week.
The Terminator franchise has an uneasy history at the box office. The original 1984 movie opened at number-one with a $4M debut before grossing over $78M worldwide. “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” hit theaters with a $31M debut before grossing $520M globally. In 2003 “Terminator: Rise of the Machines” set a new opening record with $44M, but the film fell short of beating the sequel’s global box office total when it capped at $433M. Things went downhill after that, with “Terminator Salvation” making $42M on opening weekend before grossing $371M worldwide. “Terminator: Genisys” looks good on paper, reaching $27M on opening weekend before ending its theatrical run with a $440M box office total. We should point out that international markets saved “Terminator: Genisys,” which opened at number-three domestically behind Disney’s “Inside Out” and “Jurassic World.”
Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Edward Cheng, Tim Miller, John J. Kelly, Bonnie Curtis, and Julie Lynn served as executive producers on the project.
Story credit goes to James Cameron, Charles Eglee, Josh Friedman, David Goyer, and Justin Rhodes, with screenplay credit going to David Goyer, Justin Rhodes, and Billy Ray.
Paramount Pictures moved “Terminator: Dark Fate” to November 1st from the original release date of November 22. That release date is one week after the “Charlie’s Angels” reboot and the same weekend as “Frozen 2” and “Rhythm Section” with Blake Lively and Jude Law.
