TERMINATOR: DARK FATE  - The Story So Far

Tim Miller’s Terminator: Dark Fate wipes clean the slate to set its story in the aftermath of the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

A little hazy on those events? Thank goodness then for our handy past, present and future timeline, which brings you up to speed on the key goings- on in T2, its predecessor The Terminator and this newest, hotly anticipated chapter. Don’t miss it in ODEON cinemas from 23 October!

Past, Present & Future: A Terminator Timeline (1984 - 2022)

 

It’s the ‘day after’ Judgement Day, but how did we get here – and what’s next?


1984

• The T-800, a seemingly invincible killing machine, arrives from the future to ‘terminate’ waitress Sarah Connor. Human Resistance fighter Kyle Reese is sent to protect her.


• Kyle Reese is killed in action, while the T-800 is also terminated. A grief-stricken but battle-hardened Sarah discovers that she is pregnant with Kyle’s baby.


Cyberdyne Systems – a large manufacturing corporation – recovers the remains of the T-800 from a hydraulic press. Uh-oh!

1985

Sarah gives birth to John Connor, the future leader of the Resistance.

1994

• Nine-year-old John is taken into foster care after Sarah attempts to blow up a computer factory.

• Sarah’s continued insistence that ‘Judgement Day’ is coming results in the authorities locking her up in a mental hospital.

Sarah Connor's polaroid photo has been an iconic image since the first Terminator film. Will we see the infamous polaroid appear in Terminator: Dark Fate?

1995

• A new model of Terminator, the T-1000, is sent from the future to kill 10-year-old John, while a reprogrammed T-800 (now answering to the Resistance) arrives to protect him.

• The T-800 and John rescue Sarah from the mental facility. Together they destroy Cyberdyne Systems, the corporation responsible for the creation of the artificial intelligence system, Skynet.

• After an almighty battle the T-1000 is terminated. The T-800 then sacrifices itself to prevent any further reverse engineering.

1997

• The year Skynet was supposed to become self-aware and initiate ‘Judgement Day’. (This future was seemingly thwarted by the events of 1995.)

 

2022

• The Rev-9, a new Terminator capable of dividing into two functioning units, arrives from the future to kill young Dani Ramos. Grace, a human-machine hybrid (or as she puts it: “human... just enhanced”) is sent by the Resistance to protect her.

• Original survivor Sarah Connor, who is still alive and still hunting Terminators, agrees to help Grace take care of Dani “because I was her”. 


ODEON note: Terminator: Dark Fate takes place 27 years after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Said Dark Fate director Tim Miller of the storyline: “There’s this new future because of what Sarah did at the end of Terminator 2 and it’s worse than ever!
