Linda Hamilton Calls Later ‘Terminator’ Movies “Very Forgettable”



Linda Hamilton Calls Later 'Terminator' Movies "Very Forgettable"

While attending this year’s CinemaCon event in Las Vegas to promote Tim Miller’s Terminator: Dark Fate, the direct sequel to T2, Linda Hamilton, star of The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, made it very clear that she finds the later sequels very forgettable.

Hamilton expressed her feelings by saying: “They’re very forgettable, aren’t they?” she told the folks over at Variety.

You start something and you’re invested in the franchise, but somehow the characters that you care about weren’t there. Too many people, too many story points. So I think we’ve done a good job of narrowing down the focus again so it will echo the first two films,” Hamilton said.

Hamilton recalls a six week period of consideration before she agreed to return for the sixth Terminator movie.

I gave it probably six weeks of intense thinking and consideration before deciding to do it,” she admitted. “I wasn’t sure if I wanted to. I didn’t want it to look like a shameless money grab. I am living this quiet, lovely life that doesn’t involve being a celebrity, and you really have to think, do I really want to trade that in again for another 15 minutes?

Linda Hamilton makes her return to the franchise in Terminator: Dark Fate, a direct sequel to James Cameron’s 1991 classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back for the new sequel. Canadian actress Mackenzie Davis will play our heroine, and Gabriel Luna (“Agents of SHIELD”) will play a new Terminator. Diego Boneta also stars.

Paramount Pictures will release the new sequel on November 1st, 2019.
