Terminator: Dark Fate

Linda Hamilton is reprising her role as Sarah Connor for the first time in 28 years in this, the sixth instalment of the Terminator franchise. Arnie is back on board as well to help defend humanity from Skynet, who have sent a modified liquid metal Terminator played by Gabriel Luna back in time to crush the resistance before it happens. So, more of the same. It’s hard to believe, but Christmas is already slowly but surely creeping upon us. This festive rom-com directed by Emma Thompson stars Emilia Clarke as Kate, an unhappy Londoner who works as an elf in a year-round Christmas shop. When she meets Tom, played by Henry Golding, could all that begin to change? The film borrows heavily from Bridget Jones’ ‘fashionable yet dishevelled’ costume design. Costume Kiwi costume designer Ngila Beryl Dickson, who worked on the Lord of the Rings movies, plays heavily with the iconic imagery of the original Terminator franchise. At 72 years old, Arnie still cuts an impressive figure in a leather jacket, whilst Linda Hamilton remains an excellent walking advertisement for aviator sunglasses.
