Blade Runner 2049, The Martian, Halt and Catch Fire, and (of course) Black Mirror… and now, the next Terminator movie. I’m calling it here, Mackenzie Davis is the next icon of Sci-Fi, start your deviant art portfolios and fan-fic now.
Just Jared posted pictures of an extensively scarred up Mackenzie Davis today, giving us a first look at what Variety describes as “the new face of the rebooted franchise.”
We know that James Cameron, himself, is rebooting his time traveling franchise with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton reprising their iconic roles to “anchor” the film.
The story, however, will belong to the new terminator, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s Ghost Rider, Gabriel Luna and fairly newcomer, Natalia Reyes, who is the new Terminator’s target.
There was only one element missing, the guardian from the future, and it seems that Mackenzie Davis looks like she is filling that role as previously described as, “a soldier-assassin type”. Her scars, some of which have a silver underlining to them imply future tech fixens… or “Living tissue over a metal endoskeleton.” Meaning she might be a terminator herself. This is all speculation of course, but come on. It’s good speculation!
The photos are the first glimpses of the new Terminator movie, directed by Tim Miller, with a script by Krypton creator David Goyer. Some pics seem to be BTS shots of Mackenzie working out, while others seem to be shots of the action.
I scanned the posters for signs of any more detail and came up empty handed, the only thing I can say for sure is this is the first hints of what is to come, Mackenzie Davis kills it in everything she does and I can’t wait for more. Mattias Janmark Jersey
