It's been a big week for Paramount's new film Terminator: Dark Fate, directed by Deadpool's Tim Miller. A first look was screened at CinemaCon 2019 followed by the release of official cast photos.
Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger return in their iconic roles in the film, which is produced by James Cameron and David Ellison. Dark Fate also stars Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, and Diego Boneta.
This film will take place after Terminator 2 — as if the last three films didn't exist, which we can buy into because of time travel in the Terminator universe, but also, as Linda Hamilton put it, the last three "are very forgettable, aren't they?" (Uhh, her words...not mine...)
Naturally, after the release of anything, the internet had some opinions. Enjoy:

The action looks immense. It looks like everything you've wanted in a Terminator sequel."

Even Linda Hamilton had some blunt opinions. Respect.
And then of course there are some in-depth thought pieces:
I freely admit I'm dumb but can anyone explain how a terminator can grow facial hair? https://t.co/V8SXZvmrg2— I'm Just Sayin' (@I'm Just Sayin')1554394664.0
I got you, @Yvisc:
Ultimately, between Miller's passion and body of work (we can all agree that Deadpool was great, right?), the reactions all seem optimistic and positive. We'll see if that holds out when the trailer drops.
Terminator: Dark Fate opens in theaters on Nov. 1, 2019.
I don't know if that white shirt is in regs, tho...
