Paramount Pictures has just released the first official photo from director Tim Miller and producer James Cameron’s yet to be titled Terminator 6.
The new image shows the sequel’s three female leads: Natalia Reyes as Dani Ramos, Mackenzie Davis as Grace, and Linda Hamilton reprising her role as Sarah Connor.
The sixth movie in the Terminator franchise is meant to be a direct sequel of to Cameron’s Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and will completely ignore events of the three most recent entries. This has delighted fans, as it is a general agreement amongst anyone who loved the ‘originals’ is that Cameron’s offerings were the only ones that mattered.
Also reprising an iconic role for this sequel is Hamilton’s Terminator and Judgement Day co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger, who will once again portray an older T-800 model Terminator in the film – but with no ties to the critically canned Terminator Genisys (2015), in which he did the exact same thing (played an older Terminator).
An official synopsis or title for the film has not been released, yet it is widely rumored that Terminator 6 follows Sarah and Schwarzenegger’s Terminator as they attempt to protect Dani: a young Latino woman who, in present day, finds herself being stalked by a whole new model of Terminator (Gabriel Luna) that has come back from the future expressly to kill her. Davis’s Grace is also from the post-nuclear apocalypse, and it seems this female badass will also be aiding Sarah and Dani on their next mission against Skynet.
Check out the first official pic below…
Hamilton’s ‘new look’ Sarah Connor was previously revealed in photos leaked from the Terminator 6 set. Similar on-set images of Reyes and Davis have been released online also, but this is the first official image to date.
A new James Cameron sci-fi epic is what the world truly needs right now – always chocked full of believable, non-conforming female badasses out to save the world (Ripley, for starters). Anyone who can think back to the 80’s, and grew up with what was then cutting-edge dark sci-fi, knows that Cameron had lots to do with taking science fiction – both on paper and on screen – to new levels. Some of his most well-known offerings are Terminator 1&2, Aliens, and The Abyss – and he also penned the hugely underrated Strange Days.
Ballsy James Cameron sci-fi from any era beats the tar out of weak millennial efforts like Transformers or I am Number Four; and if you haven’t seen any of his pre-mentioned films, you should.
Mr Cameron is currently hard at work on the new Avatar films (a trilogy), and has played a big part in the upcoming Alita: Battle Angel – which we at Instabamm are incredibly excited about.
If this is James Cameron returning to the dark, nasty sci-fi that made him famous, just take our money NOW!!
Terminator 6 is scheduled for release on the 22nd of November 2019.
