The Terminator movies were some of the most influential action movies of our time. They made us think twice about having AI robots, and honestly, they freaked a lot of us out completely when we were young.
Should we have been watching Terminator as kids? Probably not. Did that stop us? Nope! Instead we all just developed what I’ll call a ‘healthy concern’ for super-mega corporations that we think could be turning into the next Skynet.
Sarah Connor became our hero. The way she transformed from damsel to badass lady really stood out as something different, and even though her choices were difficult, she did what she had to do for her son.
She may have become a fugitive after the first movie, but she also became a warrior. She was ready for a fight when the second movie introduced the T-1000, but she managed to help Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 take it down.
But the third installment didn’t feature Sarah, instead saying that she died from leukemia at some point after the second movie. But don’t worry, it wasn’t the last we would see of her.
There was a TV series based on her specifically, although she was played by a different actress (Game of Thrones‘s Lena Headey). Then she also appeared in 2015’s Terminator Genisys that took place in an alternate reality where Emilia Clarke (also of Game of Thrones) played a 29-year-old version of her, once again fighting for her life.
But now, after all these years, the original Sarah Connor is back. The new movie, currently called Terminator 6 will once again see Linda Hamilton jump back into the fight against Skynet.
The movie is currently filming, and it is going to act as a direct sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day, jumping back into the story before Sarah died.
Hamilton is returning as the leader of the Resistance in the war against Skynet, and she will be accompanied by Natalia Reyes and Mackenzie Davis as they take on the evil corporation.
The first picture has been released of the three stars in costume and we are so ready for it.
Sarah is decked out in all of her gear, clearly not messing around and her team looks like they are ready for a fight as well.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is obviously a huge part of the Terminator franchise, and in 2017 he confirmed he would appear in the new installment. He will be reprising his role as the T-800, and also playing the human that the robot is based on.
Are you ready to fight Skynet one more time? The movie premieres on November 22, 2019.
