In my opinion, the first two Terminator films were truly James Cameron's greatest contribution to cinema. They told a compelling story in an original way, with truly spectacular action sequences and special effects, and pacing that may be unequaled in their genre, and they dealt with extremely dark, heavy existential themes without being pretentious about it. As you may have gathered by now, they are two of my absolute favorite movies of all time, and a major influence on my entire storytelling philosophy.
I've also hated everything that's been made since. Jim Cameron may have become a pretentious jackass in the intervening years, but the entire Terminator franchise has sucked without him, and badly.
So you understand that at this point, I'm very hesitant to get my hopes up, having been burned way too many times. But having said that...Cameron has finally agreed to come back and make one more Terminator movie, and one which pointedly ignores everything after T2. And, well...maybe.
Anyway, here's the first trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate.
