Director Tim Miller reveals the failures of Terminator: Dark Fate and how he went wrong when planning the film.
In 2019, the sixth installment of the science fiction saga that began james cameron in the 1980s, on this new occasion, among the great incentives that had been raised for Terminator: Dark Fate it was the return of Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor and arnold schwarzenegger like an aging T-800. In addition, supposedly everything that happened in the third, fourth and fifth installments had to be forgotten, since this story linked with Terminator 2: Judgment Day from 1991.
Though Terminator: Dark Fate It received good reviews from the specialized press, the fans did not agree with it and that is why it was a small box office failure. Since with a budget of 185 million dollars, it only raised 261 million worldwide.
Now, director Tim Miller has revealed what went wrong:
“Terminator is an interesting movie to explore, but maybe we’ve explored it enough. I went in with the belief that if I made a good movie that I wanted to see, I would do well. And I was wrong. It was a mistake. It was one of those fucking Eureka moments in a bad way because the movie fell apart.”
“I think if you make a lower cost Terminator movie, a good director and a movie star could make it great. It could be done with sock puppets and it could be amazing. I’d like to do a CGI Terminator like I’ve done with the Love, Death & Robots series.”
Director Tim Miller dazzled by the movie dead pool (2016), when he had quite a few things against him, so later he took charge of Terminator: Dark Fate (2019) and since then he has not directed a big movie again. Since he alone has been in charge of some of the short films of Love, Death & Robots of Netflix and has worked as a producer in the two films of Sonic of 2020 and 2022.
So the failure of Terminator: Dark Fate is still affecting his film career, as Tim Miller does not have any interesting projects in the near future.
