Linda Hamilton with shades and a goddamn shotgun is an aesthetic.
Tim Miller’s Terminator continuation has dropped its first official picture, and although we’ve seen glimpses of filming recently, it’s nice to be formally introduced to the proper return of Linda Hamilton’s legendary action heroine.
Official first look at the new #Terminator featuring Natalia Reyes, Mackenzie Davis and Linda Hamilton. Directed by Tim Miller (DEADPOOL). Produced by James Cameron and David Ellison. In theatres 11.22.19. pic.twitter.com/mOz3rxfbAN— Terminator (@Terminator) August 1, 2018
Hamilton is joined by Natalia Reyes, who appears to be playing a mechanic of some sorts judging by the “Arius Motors” shirt she’s wearing, and Mackenzie Davis, who could perhaps be the latest incarnation of the Terminator if those intriguing etchings on her skin are anything to go by.
Recent set reports alleged there were scenes being filmed that featured Davis wearing prosthetics to make it appear as though a metal exoskeleton was being exposed under her skin, too.
But really. Hamilton packing aviators and plenty of firepower is what you’re here for, and it’s delightful. The new Terminator is set to hit US cinemas 22 November 2019.
