Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as The Terminator as and you can see him reprise the iconic role alongside his original co-star Linda Hamilton in the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate.
Fans of the franchise have been eagerly anticipating the trailer drop since Schwarzenegger himself took to social media on Thursday morning to reveal it would arrive within 48 hours.
Now, the first full trailer has arrived, and you can watch it here:
The film is set to premiere in November, so hopefully there will be a lot more broken future content coming our way soon.
Terminator: Dark Fate is directed by Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron and heavily anticipated from fans of the franchise, given T2: Judgement Day premiered all the way back in 1991.
Schwarzenegger wrote on Twitter:
Since I’m from the future I can officially report that the @Terminator trailer is 48 hours away.
Along with the ominous message was a sneaky teaser, ahead of the first trailer, which has just been released.

An exclusive screening of some footage of the film took place at CinemaCon, and unfortunately most of us missed it. But, luckily, Comicbook has written a detailed description of what took place.
Brandon Davis wrote:
Mexico City. A highway suddenly starts to freeze. Electric volts start to emerge. People start to notice. An orb forms in the middle of a bridge, putting a hole in it. Cars crash. A couple that was making out on the hood of a car beneath the bridge sees a woman fall from the bridge, completely naked. They head over to her and discover she is alive. It’s Mackenzie Davis’ enhanced character. Police pull up. They question the couple and arrest one. The entire scene is in Spanish with subtitles. When they try to take the woman, she switches into combat mode and eliminates the officers swiftly and soundly. She doesn’t kill them, though. The couple thanks her for freeing them. She slowly walks to them, plants her foot right next to his, and says, ‘Don’t thank me yet.’ Cut ahead a moment and she is driving away wearing his clothes, leaving him out there without any.
Later, somewhere else, Gabriel Luna’s Terminator forms near a car crash. Davis’ character is protecting Dani Ramos and tells her, ‘When they start to kill me run.’ Suddenly, Linda Hamilton pulls up in a truck and hits one of the Terminators with her car before emerging and turning her attention to Luna’s. She destroys him with a gun, sending him off the bridge, just before using a rocket launcher to blast the other machine. A montage of clips plays. It’s violent, it’s dark, it’s tremendously computerized and appears to be establishing a fully immersive world. Back to the bridge, Hamilton drops a grenade and tells Davis, ‘I’ll be back.’ Sarah Conner walks off, pulling out a shotgun as the explosion is carried out behind her.
Terminator: Dark Fate is set to premiere on October 23, 2019.
