After wrapping principal photography this past November, Terminator: Dark Fate is deep in post-production. Now, director Tim Miller has provided a brief update on the progress of the upcoming sequel.
In a post on the film's official Twitter account, Miller shared a behind-the-scenes photo straight from the production's editing bay, where he and his team are putting together the film's first trailer. While Miller didn't specify on a release date for the trailer, he hinted that its debut is "weeks away."
“I like to spend every #TerminatorDay in a dark room thinking dark thoughts & our edit bay is the perfect place! We're here putting the finishing touches on our FIRST TRAILER-we're just weeks away from releasing this fucker into the wild & we're very, very excited.” -Tim Miller pic.twitter.com/Eh0gcCRi61— Terminator: Dark Fate (@Terminator) May 12, 2019
The image features Linda Hamilton's return to her iconic role as Sarah Connor, who brandishes what appears to be a rocket launcher in an outdoor setting. She wears the same outfit from previously released official stills.
The upcoming sequel will take place some time after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day and ignore the events of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation and Terminator: Genisys, with only the first two films remaining as canon.
Directed by Tim Miller and produced by James Cameron, Terminator: Dark Fate stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Natalia Reyes and Diego Boneta. The film is scheduled for release on November 1.
