The first official poster for Terminator: Dark Fate has been released, giving fans a brand new look at Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor.
Following the lackluster response to 2015’s Terminator: Genisys, creatives behind the franchise have decided to take the series in an entirely new direction. Their fist step was hiring Deadpool director and Terminator superfan Tim Miller to direct the film. Miller’s take on the property will reportedly be much more in line with Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day rather than the more recent installments.
Dark Fate is also bringing back original cast members Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. The latter hasn’t been in a Terminator movie since 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Despite the returning cast members, many fans have been skeptical about the film considering they previously had gotten cast members back only for the film to end up being terrible.
The marketing for the film has just begun and it’s off to a good start. The first official poster for Terminator: Dark Fate is here and it features the return of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor. You can check out the poster below.

The poster shows Linda Hamilton making her triumphant return to the role of Sarah Connor, As it stands we still know very little about the film. However, it is important to note that Arnold Schwarzenegger is absent from the poster. In a franchise that is heavily associated with Schwarzenegger, it seems that the film may be less focused on him and more so on the Connor family. Are you excited to see Linda Hamilton return?
