Terminator: Dark Fate pulled in a reported $2.35 million at 7 pm shows across the country on Halloween night, up from early estimates which placed it in the $1.5 to $1.7 million range.
The film which reunites Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger–whose T-800 character finally gets a name after all these years–takes place two decades after Judgement Day was supposedly averted. When a brand new, highly-advanced and deadly terminator model called a Rev-9 appears intent on killing Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes), it’s up to Sarah Connor (Hamilton) and an advanced super soldier (Mackenzie Davis) to stop him.
Of course, they’ll have to team up with the T-800, now called Carl, to do it.
Gabriel Luna (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) stars as the Rev-9.
This is a solid opening for the new film on Halloween night, and it will be interesting to see how the numbers stack up going into its first full opening weekend.
Hamilton and Schwarzenegger recently appeared on James Corden’s late night talk show to talk about the film, and Hamilton, who gets the line “I’ll be back” in the new film discussed how difficult it was to say the line as Sarah Connor and not do an imitation of the T-800.
