Terminator CinemaCon Footage Description Hits

Who’s ready to see James Cameron help resurrect the Terminator franchise once again? I know, Cameron did go on camera prior to the release of Terminator: Genisys to give it his seal of approval, and we know that thing turned out, but in the case of Terminator: Dark Fate, we know he was actually relatively involved with the actual development and process alongside director Tim Miller. As such, we can assume (or at least hope) that it has a minimal high bar of quality.

Earlier today, we reported on a batch of images that hit from IGN, showing off the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger and the introduction of actors like Diego Luna and Mackenzie Davis. But, of course, images are just images, and it’s really hard to tell the quality of film from those. While we don’t have a trailer to share with you guys today, the studio did show off some footage from the flick at CinemaCon, and the folks over at Screen Rant gave a description that walks us through it.

RELATED – Terminator: Dark Fate First Images Hit

Take a look below:

“It begins with MacKenzie Davis’ character Grace time-traveling and landing in Mexico, where she makes quick work of cops investigating the situation. She attacks one with a baton, throws the second a far distance, and breaks the third’s neck against a car door. She then steals a car belonging to two punks and drives off.”

First off, I find this description very interesting. From what I understood, Davis is supposed to be the hero, but here she is taking out a couple cops and killing a dude straight-off. Is she a good guy or a Terminator? Why’s she being such a dick? Anyway, where we go.

“Another scene served as an introduction to Gabriel Luna’s T-1000 showing up and a skeleton T-800 throw a spear. Grace is protecting a young girl and picks up the spear so she has a weapon. Sarah Connor then arrives in a car, firing a shotgun out the window and launching a rocket at Terminators. The rest of the footage was primarily a sizzle reel of action beats with the highlights being Arnold Schwarzenegger’s famous Terminator shooting his own weapon and Sarah reciting the famous ‘I’ll be back’ line.”

So, I’ll admit, it’s hard to really infer much from this description, but it all kinda falls apart from me at the end when Sarah Conner says the “I’ll be back” line. Sure, it’s a callback to the first film, but haven’t we seen enough of that in pop culture? I guess that’s just me.

I know it’s hard to judge anything based on a description, but did any of this float your boat? I think I’ll have to wait until I see a trailer for myself, but what do you think? Let us know your thoughts down below!
