This latest film fully ignores the events of the last Terminator movie, "Terminator: Genisys", with Emilia Clarke which bombed with audiences and critics in 2015.

Linda, 62, looked incredible in a chic white jacket as she told the fans she was ready to portray their favorite character, Sarah Connor. We knew that was what the fans wanted and what we always wanted to do.

"One day I woke up and realized I can no longer worry about being what I was because I am so much more than what I was", she said.

The actor went on to share how "happy" he was that both James Cameron (who is producing and co-writing the screenplay) and Hamilton had returned for the new movie. Dark Fate will also restore Furlong's version of John Connor - who first appeared as a rebellious kid protected by Arnold Schwarzengger's T-800 in T2 - to the franchise. So, what convinced her to return to hunting terminators? "I'm addicted to Terminator", Schwarzenegger said of why he came back. This is the first time the two heroes of Terminator 2: Judgement Day have been reunited on-screen since its 1991 release.

The main point in the "pro column", Cameron said, is that people love her as this character.

"You kind of want to retire a champion", Hamilton said. "What has happened to make her who she is now 27 years later".

Terminator: Dark Fate is scheduled for release Oct. 23 in the UK, Oct. 31 in Australia, and November 1 in the US. What started as pretty standard hype generation for the movie, in which Cameron promised they'd made "the best Terminator movie for 2019", quickly turned in real news when Cameron revealed that Edward Furlong has returned to the franchise as a now-grown John Connor. "I felt there was a world of richness I could explore and then rock it as a woman of a certain age".
