Paramount Pictures released this week a new red-band trailer for Terminator: Dark Fate, a reboot of the franchise set immediately following the events of Terminator: Judgement Day. Dead Pool director Tim Miller is at the helm with James Cameron producing and Linda Hamilton reprising the iconic role of Sarah Conner.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is back too as the T-800—now apparently retired from his killer cyborg gig and living the peaceful life of an outdoorsman named Carl up until Sarah and her new uppity pals show up at his door. Edward Furlong is also in the mix as Sarah’s son and onetime T-800 BBF, John Conner.

Terminator: Dark Fate holds a lot of promise for returning the franchise to its former glory, but what this trailer really reveals is the missed opportunity of scrapping all that action and time traveling business to focus on the quiet life of a former killing machine from the future as it lives among us.
