The upcoming Terminator movie, which sees the return of James Cameron and Linda Hamilton to the franchise, will be a semi-reboot of the series as well as a sequel. The new film is expected to scrub the last three films from the timeline while acting as a proper sequel to the most successful film in the franchise, Terminator 2: Judgement Day. And if you’re curious as to just what that will look like, we’re now getting a better idea as the first behind the scenes footage from the film has been unveiled.
The new video was released by the Hungarian National Film Fund to promote filming in Hungary, since the film shot a number of scenes in the European nation. There aren’t a whole lot of details revealed, but we do catch a few intriguing glimpses. There’s a group scene with an older, bearded, flannel-wearing T-800 (Arnold Schwarzenegger) hanging out in front of a log cabin while petting a dog and drinking a beer. It’s a super weird spot to see the killer robot in — he seriously looks like a retiree enjoying his golden years — and we can’t wait to see how it fits into the film. Also glimpsed is a very sci-fi-looking set, as well as a battle-worn Sarah Connor (Hamilton) alongside fellow butt-kickers and new characters Grace (Mackenzie Davis) and Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes). A Hummer also figures prominently in the footage, and we’re willing to bet that Arnold drives it at some point in the film given the actor’s real-life affinity for the vehicles.
But perhaps the most intriguing reveal in the video may be the film’s title. The movie is still unofficially titled, and though it’s colloquially referred to as Terminator 6, it’s not actually the sixth film chronologically. The video refers to the movie simply as Terminator in the opening credits; a title also referenced by the late producer Andy Vajna, so does this mean the film will just be called Terminator? It sure seems likely! You can check out the video below.
Terminator — or whatever this movie is called — arrives in theaters on Nov 1, 2019.
