Arnold Schwarzenegger returns in new trailer for 'Terminator: Dark Fate'

The first teaser trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate has been released by Paramount Pictures, and Arnold Schwarzenegger will be reprising his iconic role as cyborg assassin The Terminator - along with his original co-star Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor.

Take a look at the trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate:

Fans of the franchise have spent the last couple of days waiting patiently for the trailer to drop after the 71-year-old acting legend took to Twitter on Tuesday to gear everyone up for the trailer's imminent release.

"Since I’m from the future I can officially report that the @Terminator trailer is 48 hours away," the former bodybuilder wrote on Twitter.

While this film will be the sixth in the franchise, Dark Fate acts as though events of the previous three Terminator movies had never taken place. Almost as though it were following directly on from Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day - which makes for a rather confusing viewing experience.

Earlier this year, exclusive footage of the film was screened at CinemaCon. were at the event and have since posted a lengthy description of what went down:

"Mexico City. A highway suddenly starts to freeze. Electric volts start to emerge. People start to notice. An orb forms in the middle of a bridge, putting a hole in it. Cars crash.

"A couple that was making out on the hood of a car beneath the bridge sees a woman fall from the bridge, completely naked. They head over to her and discover she is alive. It’s Mackenzie Davis’ enhanced character. Police pull up.

"They question the couple and arrest one. The entire scene is in Spanish with subtitles. When they try to take the woman, she switches into combat mode and eliminates the officers swiftly and soundly.

"She doesn’t kill them, though. The couple thanks her for freeing them. She slowly walks to them, plants her foot right next to his, and says, ‘Don’t thank me yet.’ Cut ahead a moment and she is driving away wearing his clothes, leaving him out there without any."

"Later, somewhere else, Gabriel Luna’s Terminator forms near a car crash. Davis’ character is protecting Dani Ramos and tells her, ‘When they start to kill me run.’

"Suddenly, Linda Hamilton pulls up in a truck and hits one of the Terminators with her car before emerging and turning her attention to Luna’s. She destroys him with a gun, sending him off the bridge, just before using a rocket launcher to blast the other machine.

"A montage of clips plays. It’s violent, it’s dark, it’s tremendously computerized and appears to be establishing a fully immersive world.

Back to the bridge, Hamilton drops a grenade and tells Davis, ‘I’ll be back.’ Sarah Conner walks off, pulling out a shotgun as the explosion is carried out behind her."

Terminator: Dark Fate is set for release in cinemas on November 1.
