Fateful Return

Actors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton are back on the big screen as a killing machine in human disguise and a waitress-turned-warrior fighting for the future of humanity —the roles that helped catapult them to Hollywood stardom in the original Terminator film some 30 years ago.

Schwarzenegger, 72, and Hamilton, 63, spoke in Tokyo on Nov. 5 about their turns in the latest installment of the action-packed sci-fi franchise, "Terminator: Dark Fate," ahead of the film's Nov. 6 Japan premiere.

"Every time I leave, I say, 'I'll be back,'" joked Schwarzenegger of his many trips to Japan. It is also his fifth time playing a "terminator," cybernetic assassins designed to help wipe out human beings in a future war between people and machines.

In "The Terminator," the 1984 smash hit that launched the series, Schwarzenegger was the baddie. He was sent back in time to murder Hamilton's Sarah Connor, a woman who would eventually give birth to the leader of the human resistance in the future war against the machines.

By the time of the 1991 follow-up "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," or just "T2," Sarah Connor had been transformed by her ordeal and knowledge of the coming war into a tough mother and soldier. Schwarzenegger's reprogrammed T-800 cyborg helps her to defend her son John against another nasty machine.

"Dark Fate" picks up the story more than two decades after T2, and Connor has Schwarzenegger's T-800 at her side once more in a fight against a vicious new terminator model, the REV-9. This time, the iconic "I'll be back" line belongs to Hamilton, she revealed, adding that she had practiced the line relentlessly. But it still "sounds like Arnold," quipped director Tim Miller.

Now over 70, Schwarzenegger revealed he "enjoyed the action sequences the best when I fought Gabriel (Luna)," who plays the REV-9. He also praised Hamilton for her action chops, saying he was overwhelmed by his 63-year-old friend and costar's moves.

Asked when he might play the terminator again, Schwarzenegger replied, "I think this was it," but added, "the audience always decides if there is another one." (By Kobayashi Haruka)
