Terminator: Dark Fate trailer blurs lines between humans and Terminators

The trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate has finally arrived.

"It has been almost 30 years since I last stepped into the shoes of Sarah Connor, a character who definitely changed my life", Hamilton said in April at CinemaCon. The teaser poster, which dropped Wednesday, calls back to Cameron's "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" with the text "Welcome to the Day after Judgment Day".

After James Cameron's masterful first two sci-fi films introduced the world to Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 robot out to kill her/protect her, the Terminator franchise took some pretty weak turns.

Welcome to the day after Judgment Day. Deadpool director Tim Miller will take charge, promising a mix of action and comedy. The poster was discovered by The Terminator Fans account. James Cameron created a stunning and visually appealing movie, which also had some heart, which was lacking from the first installment, but for a very good reason.

Others were suspicious about the delay and wondered if the U.S. -China trade war was at fault. So far, Tencent has not provided an update of when the finale will be shown.

In 2006 the franchise tried to reboot with Terminator: Salvation aka Christian Bale Is Just Here To Cash A Paycheck, but this planned trilogy failed miserably with its future-set revolution story just one movie in.

Back in 2015, Arnie returned as the T-800 for Terminator Genisys, the fifth entry in the time travel franchise. We should get a few more looks at the highly anticipated sequel in the months to come.

Terminator: Dark Fate is due for release on 23 October in the United Kingdom, 31 October in Australia, and 1 November in the US.
