Terminator Arnie

Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Be A Very Different Terminator In The New Movie

Barring Salvation (though one could certainly argue semantics), every Terminator movie to date has included Arnold Schwarzenegger in a prominent role. After all, a symbiosis exists between the two insofar that the franchise and actor boosted each other's recognition considerably back in the 1980's.

And though I’m forever a fan of Arnie’s, I can’t help noticing how it looks kind of strange for someone of his age to continue playing a cybernetic organism. I imagine this put off more than a few moviegoers when Genisys had its theatrical run a few years ago, but the next attempt at reviving the series will do likewise. Funny enough, both Genisys and Tim Miller’s effort seem to have a similar approach by saying the flesh on a T-800 ages like that of a normal human.

Actually, I should stop right there because Arnold may not be playing a T-800 model at all this time around. Instead, we could be looking at a different robot entirely, which Miller hinted at while speaking with IGN at the Alita: Battle Angel premiere:

“Arnold’s back and he’s bad… he’s a different Terminator than you’ve ever seen before, I mean literally he’s a different chassis number but he’s also a very different guy than you’ve seen before.”

In all honesty, this could prove to be pretty cool. It remains to be seen if his abilities will rival that of the T-1000 or Terminatrix’s, but we may not know for certain until showtime. Then again, the studio could always spoil the plot entirely as they did with Genisys‘ trailer.

Right now, the picture’s currently being referred to as Terminator: Dark Fate, though it’s important to note that title isn’t set in stone. Regardless, it’s due to arrive in cinemas on November 1st.
