Are you ready for round 6?! The official teaser trailer for the upcoming sixth instalment in the “Terminator” franchise, “Terminator: Dark Fate” dropped today and based on those 2.5 minutes, it’s looking like “Deadpool” director Tim Miller will be delivering the action-packed sequences and classic fight scenes we’ve come to expect from a Terminator film. Plus the added bonus of nostalgic references and badass women!
Although this is only a teaser, we actually get quite a detailed look into the film’s base storyline, which is a sequel to the first two critically acclaimed Terminator movies, while the remaining (and far less well received) franchise films exist in alternate realities. The trailer begins by introducing us to two new primary protagonists: Grace (Mackenzie Davis), who seems to be part human, part Terminator and the woman she is trying desperately to protect, for reasons that remain unclear, Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes).
From there, a Terminator with extraordinarily intimidating new abilities poses as the main threat, while Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) makes a legendary return to save the day; looking even more powerful than we remember. The goal is to protect Dani Ramos and who better to call on for help than Arnold Schwarzenegger? He’ll have to abandon his quaint woods cabin though, sorry Arnold!

With only a month until the release of the “Toy Story 3” sequel no one knew they needed, Pixar dropped one final trailer for “Toy Story 4”. Featuring a handful of new and charismatic toys like Forky (Tony Hale), Ducky and Bunny (Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele), and Duke Caboom (Keanu Reeves), this last trailer let’s us in to the final plot details that will hold us over until the June 21st release date. Before we get into a breakdown and some Twitter reactions, check it out!
With Andy and Woody’s relationship having come to a heartfelt conclusion in “Toy Story 3”, this fourth instalment in the Toy Story franchise focuses on Woody’s own journey and growth as a toy. What begins as a simple family road trip with their new owner Bonnie, quickly becomes a full-blown mission to find her new (and now lost) toy Forky. Buzz gets trapped in an amusement park with Keegan Michael-Key and Jordan Peele’s Ducky and Bunny, while Woody reunites with Bo Peep and Keanu Reeves’ Duke Caboom steps in to assist as “Canada’s greatest stuntman”.
It’s an adventure that would entertain young viewers, while still covering themes deep enough to rope in the audience that gave the franchise it’s initial wings. But will it succeed or should they have stopped at 3? Here’s what fans are saying on Twitter:
The plot for Toy Story 4 is kinda insane for a kid's movie. Sure its animated and kids love that shit, but I don't think they have the mental capacity to understand whether it is better to make others happy or yourself happy.
I am so pleased with the restraint that Disney marketing has shown with the Toy Story 4 trailers. That was the last one, and I love that I can say you haven’t seen anything yet. pic.twitter.com/6ACrwtXS1H
