Watch a Metal-Crushing Action Scene From ‘Terminator: Dark Fate’ | Anatomy of a Scene


“My name’s Tim Miller, and I’m
the director of ‘Terminator– Dark Fate.’ This scene starts
in Dani Ramos and Diego Ramos’s workplace. They go to work at the factory
where they’re making cars, and the terminator is
tracking them there as well as Grace, the protector. So, you know, there
are things that are hallmarks of the
‘Terminator’ movies, and then there
are things where we feel like we could go
freestyle and change things and bring something new. So the fight has
this rhythm to it. There’s a whole lot
of moments in it, but I think my favorite
moments are really the Grace-ascendant
moments where she has this sledgehammer
and she’s just beatin’ the crap out of the Rev-9. And I think it’s really
the first time you see just how strong she is. We shot this in
two locations that is supposed to feel like one. We shot the wider
shots and some of the chase
parts of the scene at a Mercedes factory outside
of Budapest in Hungary. But in the middle, we go
into an assembly line area where we have the main
area of the fight. And when that happens,
we’re transitioning onto a set that
was built on stage at Origo Studios in Hungary. And the reason we did that is
because for stunts you really want a controlled environment
because if people are going to get thrown on
floors and into walls and onto work benches and
have engines fall on them–” “My name is Grace.” “–you really want all that
stuff to be safe in a way that you can’t if you’re going
into somebody else’s house to do it.”

  1. The movie might have been bad, but I enjoyed Sarah Connor and Carl. Their chemistry kinda made it worth watching. Can't say much else.

  2. If it had been the T1000, fight would have been over the moment she picked up that sledgehammer or giving her the most benefit of the doubt, when she tried to use that car door as a shield.

  3. T 1000 looked better and scarier. I also love how she makes it look so weak. Isn't this the most best model to date? The T 800 would have done a better job. I don't think the writers understand how technology works.

  4. This movie was awesome!!!! The rev 9 and the t 3000 my fav terminators i would like to see them in a fighting game 😁👍

  5. I love how they said the other terminator movies didn’t happen after T2 and then they proceeded to rip ideas straight from the uncanonized movies lol

  6. What I think is funny is we see T800 terminator serving up beers and chilling at his house in the woods and has a decent human wife like wtf 😂

  7. Feminism power

    Behold the strong female terminator that overpowers the man

    Yawns come back when you can write a decent script and not keep rehashing the same terminator formula over and over

  8. And the typical cliche of not finishing the enemy while hes weak.. Could she not bash hes head non stop?? I know it happens in T2 as well.. Still why do it again??

  9. so much (well-deserved) hate in the comments, where tf are the likes coming from? literally nobody, myself included, is excited for this movie.

  10. how about the time machine was not functioning well and the Rev-9 enters a different timeline, the Alita: Battle Angel timeline

  11. There are lots of short hairstyles for women that convey a hardcore soldier's life without sacrificing femininity, and you guys went with Dennis The Menace.

  12. Ever think that was the problem, in judgement day or the original terminator the heroes are always running and trying escape a terrifying unwavering threat, and as incredible as Linda became in judgment day she was still a human, a warrior a soldier but not some ridiculous op script breaking machine that could wield a sledgehammer like it weighs as much as kitten.

  13. It's hard to get behind a movie when the only actors that are promoting it are Arnold and Linda. What about Mackenzie, Natalia and Gabriel? I find it suspiscious that these 3 actors were absent in the world tours. Then bad reviews came flooding in. Sigh.

  14. You do realize the reason the movie failed is because people aren't that stupid anymore. Terminator is more effective grabbing you and pulling you apart. Lazy action sequence again.

  15. I really feel sad for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton. This movie should have worked. The director is to blame for sucking this movie.

  16. The sped up/slowed down CGI action always looks fake in every movie and never creates a sense of any real danger. To most adults it gets boring real fast.

  17. This movie was a good conclusion to The Terminator . It showed John Connor getting killed and the Terminator that killed John Connor created a life of its own . I could have done without the other hour and 45 minutes of BS .

  18. Haven't seen the movie but this action scene is miles better than most action movies out there. Y'all just a bunch of cry babies

  19. It's a joke!!! not Terminator. I don't know why you did that. You destroyed this series. It's completly crazy (negativ) and incomprehensible. Arnold as Terminator has a family, this cyborg can love? Who's a Mateo?! This film really was created with James Cameron?

  20. Garbage. So sad how strongly I DON'T feel about seeing this movie. I wouldn't watch this trash for free, let alone pay a box office for a ticket.

    I hope the entire dozen of SJW's they didn't want to offend enjoy their trash movie, because the rest of us could give 2 sh!ts about this tragic disgrace of a sequel to one of the most badass sci fi film franchises.

    I hate so much about this crap, I can't even bring vocabulary up to the task to properly judge it. So I'll just thumbs down, like the rest of the youtube vids that refer to this movie, and move along.

  21. This movie would've worked if they had only used any other storyline…maybe something where Arnie while living with his family is found out to be a machine and they're hunting him down or the beginning of the Skynet war or the aftermath of the war with rogue terminators still running around or a million other things (my little brother was pitching me these ideas).

  22. So the REV9 can just come up to Dani while looking like her father and stab her through the brain, instead he tries to make a gun and shoot her allowing for Grace to attack?? What kind of idiots do you have writing your scripts??
