Visual Effects genius and Director Tim Miller is in Toronto to promote his latest effort, TERMINATOR: DARK FATE. The latest installment in the Blockbuster franchise sees original cast members Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger reuniting on-screen with James Cameron back as Producer. The Film is a continuation of 1984’s The Terminator and 1991’s Terminator: Judgment Day, the first time Cameron has been involved in the Series since then. Miller, known for helming Deadpool to international success, is slated for a day of Press including various morning show visits early tomorrow.
While the Film suffered its namesake dark fate last night with its L.A. Premiere cancelled due the Getty Fire, Miller was in great spirits, surprising fans at Scotiabank Theatre. He did a quick Question and Answer before its IMAX Screening with Richard Crouse. He then made his way to TIFF Bell Lightbox for an extended Q&A later in the evening.
We must say we enjoyed TERMINATOR: DARK FATE more than imagined. It takes Miller’s brilliant visual talents and mashes them up with fan favourites Hamilton and Schwarzenegger in a relentless thrill ride which has everyone giving it their every last ounce of energy. Canada’s Mackenzie Davis rises to the occasion and delivers a fierce performance which won’t soon be forgotten. Terminator: Dark Fate caters to modern sensibilities and brings out several laughs, which work surprisingly well and of course, cheers.
TERMINATOR: DARK FATE is in theatres Friday, November 1, 2019.
