Terminator: Dark Fate: Linda Hamilton Looks Tougher Than Ever

“I called her up, and I said: ‘Look, we could rest on our laurels. It’s ours to lose, in a sense. We created this thing several decades ago. But, here’s what can be really cool.

But there isn’t an example of that for women, and I think there should be,” he said. We concur. Terminator: Dark Fate will hit theaters on November 1.
