After holding secret fan screenings for the sixth installment in the long-running sci-fi action franchise, the first reactions are hitting Twitter for Terminator: Dark Fate, hailing it as the best film in the series since T2: Judgment Day and praising the performances of its female leads. Check out some of the social reactions them out below!
Also, Terminator fans at Alamo Drafthouse theaters across the country were treated to a huge surprise when they became the first audience to see Dark Fate. Billed as a fan event to see Terminator 2 with exclusive footage from the new movie, Paramount worked with Twitter on a first to market auto-response product utilizing the Terminator: Dark Fate talent accounts to invite fans to the screenings. Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton alerted the audience via video greeting that instead they decided to show them the whole film!
Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger return in their iconic roles as Sarah Connor and T-800 in Dark Fate with James Cameron, also returning as a producer and co-writer. They’re joined by Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049), Natalia Reyes (Birds of Passage), Gabriel Luna (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and Diego Boneta in the film with Tim Miller (Deadpool) behind the camera.
More than two decades have passed since Sarah Connor prevented Judgment Day, changed the future, and re-wrote the fate of the human race. Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) is living a simple life in Mexico City with her brother (Diego Boneta) and father when a highly advanced and deadly new Terminator – a Rev-9 (Gabriel Luna) – travels back through time to hunt and kill her. Dani’s survival depends on her joining forces with two warriors: Grace (Mackenzie Davis), an enhanced super-soldier from the future, and a battle-hardened Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton). As the Rev-9 ruthlessly destroys everything and everyone in its path on the hunt for Dani, the three are led to a T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) from Sarah’s past that may be their last best hope.
The film will hit theaters on November 1.
