Arnold Schwarzenegger made The Terminator unforgettable and it made him a megastar. Now “he’s back” as the iconic character – going from Judgment Day to Dark Fate.
The superstar is back to his legacy as Terminator: Dark Fate releases on 1st November
Arnold speaks on the new installment, “I just tell them, ‘It’s another Terminator movie with a totally different story and it has Jim Cameron’s fingerprints all over it. Also, Linda Hamilton’s. So, it’s kind of like going back to the old days of Terminator. And it has more action in it than any of the other Terminators have ever had. More unique action. And the visual effects are unlike anything you’ve ever seen.”
What was it like working with Jim and Linda again – did it transport you back to 1984?
“Not so much ’84, more a combination of ’84 and ’91. It was just nice to all work together again. It was great. I remember that it was really the first time I had played a machine and it was fun to do that. I’d seen Yul Brynner in Westworld and the way he played that role was so powerful and so believable that I wanted to play it exactly the same way. So that was my motivation: Brynner! That’s why when I met Jim Cameron for the first time, and I told him what needed to happen, how the terminator has to act, how he has to carry himself, how he has to behave, Cameron offered me the role! I’d gone to talk to him about playing Reese [the human time-traveller], that was the idea. But then Jim realised I could play the terminator really well and that was that.”
Produced by James Cameron with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Edward Furlong reprising their iconic cult roles, Terminator: Dark Fate will release on 1st November 2019 in 6 langauges: English Hindi Tamil Telugu Kannada and Malayalam!
