Quotes And Leadership Lessons From Terminator: Dark Fate

“I’ll be back…” are the famous words spoken by Arnold Schwarzenegger in his iconic role as a Terminator in the original movie. And he has been back… Again and again.

Terminator: Dark Fate is the sixth movie in the Terminator series. However, it doesn’t take place as the sixth movie.

Main cast of Terminator: Dark Fate

Terminator: Dark Fate takes place in the same timeline as The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. If you’ve watched Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator Salvation, or Terminator Genisys, those movies take place in an alternate timeline.

Dark Fate takes place 28 years after Judgement Day. There’s now a new threat. The machines have now sent a Rev-9 Terminator (Gabriel Luna) unit to dispatch a young woman, Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes). She is the hope for the future resistance.
