Terminator Reunion! Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton Hype Their Upcoming Sequel
The stars of the original Terminator movies were back together to promote the upcoming sequel
Arnold Schwarzenegger, 71, reunited with his original Terminator costar Linda Hamilton, 62, on Thursday at CinemaCon in Las Vegas. The actors showed up to promote the upcoming Terminator: Dark Fate, which is billed as a sequel to James Cameron’s first two Terminator films: The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991).
The pair appeared on stage after footage of the movie was premiered, with Schwarzenegger making a joke about his return to the iconic character and his political career after.
“This is really nuts to present the movie …. this is a fundraiser for my next political race,” former California governor Schwarzenegger joked, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Three other films have since followed Cameron’s sequel, with the last in the franchise being Terminator: Genisys (2015), starring Emilia Clarke alongside Schwarzenegger.
The movie will reunite Schwarzenegger, Cameron (who’s producing and co-writing the screenplay) and actress Hamilton for the first time since Terminator 2.

On Thursday, Paramount also released first look photos of the rest of the cast, including Hamilton, Gabriel Luna and Mackenzie Davis.
