First official look at Terminator 6 introduces the film’s trio of female leads

A new Terminator movie is on the way. For a while now, that hasn’t been a good thing. The verdict is still out on whether that will change for the still-untitled Terminator 6, but at least they’re making all the right noises and showing all the right looks. The “they” in this case being original franchise creator James Cameron who is shepherding this latest entry which is to be directed by Deadpool’s Tim Miller. As is the latest trend in Hollywood, this new film will be a direct sequel to Cameron’s masterpiece first two films, The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, ignoring the continuity of the other three films and TV series that followed.

Possibly the best thing about this approach is that besides for Arnold Schwarzenegger’s titular robot, Terminator 6 will be bringing back Linda Hamilton as original badass heroine Sarah Connor. We already had our first look at Hamilton as Connor thanks to some early on-set pics, and the 61-year old actress appeared to have not missed a single badass step in resuming her iconic role.

That look was an unofficial one though, but Paramount Pictures has now officially revealed the first image from the film and there’s a lot more than just Hamilton to gawk at here as we’re actually introduced to all three of the film’s female leads – yes, three! – with Halt and Catch Fire actress Mackenzie Davis and relative newcomer Natalia Reyes joining Hamilton in a promotional pose.

Despite Hamilton and Schwarzenegger being on the billing, Davis is actually the film’s lead protagonist but we know very little about who she is. Thanks to this pic being in high-res though, you can click to enlarge quite nicely and you will definitely want to do that to notice the very strange markings all over Davis’ exposed skin. Does that make her some new kind of Terminator? We have no idea. We also don’t know anything about Reyes character, except that 90210’s Diego Boneta is also in the film and plays her brother. Also in the cast is Diego Luna – who shot to fame thanks to his portrayal of Ghost Rider in Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD – who we actually know will be a brand new breed of Terminator.

And that actually concludes all the info we know about this film, which is being kept very hush-hush for now. Despite the film being in production since the start of last month already, it’s only scheduled for release on 22 November 2019 so we probably still have a while to go before we see a trailer of any sorts.

  1. “kept very hush-hush” – I hope they stay with this attitude during the trailers as well. Part of the reason I think Genisys (I had to Google the spelling) was lacking, is the Connor turn that was revealed in the trailers already…

    The lack of Emilia Clarke is actually triggering me. 🙁 I know you guys didn’t like Genisys, but I did, and she was a good Sarah Connor.

    But holy hell, look at those guns on Mackenzie Davis…

        It stands out above all the other flaws in an otherwise forgotten movie. For me, trailer spoilers such as that one and the Doomsday one for BvS are very big issues, and I knock one or two points out of 10 off a final score immediately!

          What kept annoying me in Genisys was Sarah Connor being shorter than her shotgun, like she was some weird anime protagonist with a giant weapon.

          Genisys has a runtime of 126 minutes. I am sure the Cinemasins runtime for it is around 125 minutes 😛

            Now that you mention it…it fits well into one of those “once you see it you cannot unsee it” memes…

            What kept annoying me was how bad the movie was.
            And I was really hoping it would be good, because Matt Smith was in it.

    Seems like they are going full femtard as well. Rather create brand new all female franchises , stop ruining existing franchises. Have they not learned their lesson from oceans 8 and the new ghost busters?

      Ha!
      After seeing that image, I was wondering, “Where’s John?”
      In the current socio-climate, your answer makes a lot of sense.

      EDIT: It could actually make sense in the context of the story. What better way to hide John than to change his, I mean her, gender.

    If they used more high profile actresses, I might consider the movie, but none of the leads are saying much for me. Some movies can be the biggest load of garbage story wise, but if they have amazing actors, they can pull the movie out of the doldrums. For me, Terminator 6 might be the franchises’ lowest point, but we’ll see. We could always be surprised.

    P.S. Time has not been good to Linda Hamilton!

      Mackenzie Davis is a fantastic actress (you should really check out Halt and Catch Fire if you haven’t). And Linda Hamilton’s credentials are too long to list. Natalia Reyes is the only newcomer here.

      And, I have to point out, Genisys was probably the most star stacked Terminator movie ever with Emilia Clarke, Matt Smith, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney and JK Simmons, and that didn’t automatically make it a massive success.
